Fangirl

Thanks to a very strong recommendation from cherith, then a second from [personal profile] renay, I picked up "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell. I finished it today, and it lived up to the high expectations that had been set. A fun book, a sweet love story, and the very best fictional depiction of fandom I have ever seen. Rainbow Rowell must be in fandom. There is just no way an outsider could have written that story, could have captured the experience of being a fan, and particular of being a writer of fanfiction, without having lived it on some level. If you have any interest, I echo the call to check it out.

Next up: "Cold Steel" by Kate Elliott, which I actually got halfway through before setting it aside for "Fangirl". It's the third in a trilogy, with some of the most fantastic world building ever.

I'm glad you liked it! Rainbow is supposed to be in my town on Saturday with John Green at some library event. I'm totally going.
