The reason that this book didn't score five stars was the "Fangirl" theme of the book (ironic, I know). I honestly think that the thing that tipped me over the edge was the point where The Simon Snow series was likened to Harry Potter. I mean, Simon Snow was like a parallel of Harry Potter in this novel... How could the two co-exist?
.....Anyway, besides that, I really enjoyed the storyline! Cath reminded me of myself, which is probably why I enjoyed it so much! Although YA novels are often filled with shy, nervous teenage girls, I thought Rowell shed new light with the creation of Cath's character.
In "Fangirl" Rowell creates a fresh new spin on the YA/romance genre.
I'm looking forward to reading Eleanor & Park one day!
