2017 Boek #17 Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell
“To really be a nerd, she'd decided, you had to prefer fictional worlds to the real one.”
“You’ve read the books?” “I’ve seen the movies.” Cath rolled her eyes so hard, it hurt. (Actually.) (Maybe because she was still on the edge of tears. On the edge, period.) “So you haven’t read the books.” “I’m not really a book person.” “That might be the most idiotic thing you’ve ever said to me” “You’re never going to find a guy who’s exactly like you—first of all, because that guy never leaves his dorm room.”
Fangirl heb ik gelezen naar aanleiding van het boek wat ik eerder heb gelezen, Carry On. Fangirl gaat over Simon en Baz, en het boek Carry On, wat geschreven wordt in dit verhaal. Ik kan me zelf heel erg identificeren met Cath, zij is een meisje wat graag bij haar eigen dingen blijft. Het nieuwe hoeft niet slecht te zijn, daar komt ze gedurende het verhaal achter. En de liefde voor Simon en Baz is dezelfde liefde die ik voel voor die 2! En dan heb ik nog niet eens de andere boeken gelezen! (Die bestaan helaas niet :()

From the author of the New York Times bestseller Eleanor & ParkA coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family and first love. 

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan...

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words... And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
