Wishlist Thursday[106]: Fangirl (Exclusive Collector's Edition) by Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl (Exclusive Collector's Edition) by Rainbow Rowell

Genre: YA/NA Contemporary Romance

Publisher: Macmillan

Release Date: May 12, 2015

Goodreads Synopsis:

This special edition includes fan art, a ribbon bookmark, a Q&A with the author, and an excerpt from her new book Carry On.

In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, 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? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

A New York Times Best Seller!


I have heard so many good things about this book, and it sounds very much like something I would like. I’ve only read Eleanor & Park, but I enjoyed it, and am sure that I will like Rowell’s other books. I’ve almost picked this up a few times, and was excited at hearing a special edition was coming out, and so decided to wait for it. I’m not sure if it’s a B&N exclusive like the Eleanor & Park one was, since it’s also listed on Amazon? Either way, though, I intend on picking it up.

What are you looking forward to?
