The Novel's Court (12)

Hey Chroniclers! It's the second post today which is pretty cool because everyone loves posts. As I said in the previous post, today is Tuesday and that means books have been released into the world. The Novel's Court is a weekly meme hosted by me where I bring to you a debut novel that is a stand-alone or the start of a series and put it through a court-like process to deem whether it is Guilty of reading or Not Guilty. I'm going to try a new thing where at the end you can vote as to whether it's guilty or not. So let us begin!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.

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

Time for Court!

The Story: I think the story sounds pretty awesome. We've all been there in fandoms regardless if it's books, movies, shows or whatever else there is. And we've all found it hard to move on and never really do. I also find how the character seems so relatable in the synopsis. 

The Cover: Not exactly a fan of the cover but I like how it's simple like her other covers. I do love when covers match. 

The Verdict: Guilty! I would read this and depending how the reviews go I might have to add this on my wishlist. Seems like it would be a fun, quick book to read.
