Today’s post is going to be a book review, of one of the books I read this year.
It’s Fan-Girl by Rainbow Rowell.
The book is about a girl in her freshman year of university called Cath she has an identical twin sister Wren who she used to be close with. Now Wren wants to go to parties, be more outgoing and make new friends, whereas Cath is more focused on writing her fan-fictions about Simon Snow.
Simon Snow is a fictional character, in a series of books by fictional author Gemma T. Leslie.
I liked how involved Cath was in writing her stories, she really enjoyed writing fan-fiction.
Reagan her roommate is quite rude at the start. And happens, to have a boyfriend called Levi but their relationship isn’t really depicted as being that romantic.
Levi is often waiting around their dorm room, for Reagan and often ends up talking more with Cath, who slowly starts opening up a bit more.
There were extracts from chapters of Simon Snow books, which were nice but I felt like there was too much of them, the same with long passages of extracts that Cath’s written that she reads out.
Also, there were extracts of Simon Snow fan fictions Cath has written, a few were with her sister.
Despite having anxiety, and being a lot more involved with studying and writing fan-fiction Cath is still very caring towards her sister and her dad.
The book was good, and was quite insightful and informative.
