It would be difficult to chose which Rainbow Rowell book is my favorite. In January I finished Eleanor and Park, Attachments and now Fangirl. The commonality is her well developed, lovable characters and the agonizing conflict that runs through each of the books. Fangirl's main character is uncomfortable with herself, which in turn makes the reader uncomfortable reading about her situation but you are rooting for her. Rowell has a way with realistic, contemporary fiction. Fans of John Green will love Rainbow Rowell.
I'm in love with this book. And the author who also wrote Eleanor and Park. And Lincoln. Geesh, this is good, good realistic, modern romantic fiction. Eleanor and Park will be more relatable to teens, Attachments more relatable to 20 somethings and beyond. I love them both. I'm pretty sure I just finished my 4th book of the year and 2 of them will be on my best books of the year list come Dec. 2014. That's how good they are.
Love this cozy series and this one gives some insight into Q's past.
Soo good. Realistic, funny, love, friendship... this is so current and sellable but also really raw and lots of language. This is a tough one. Hard to even describe what makes it so good without giving away the surprises nestled within it. I'd love to hear thoughts from other readers.
A new favorite. This is crazy good. For those in John Green withdraw here's a new author to love and characters to remember. A story of first love, young love and true love. I love all the song, book and movie references too! I'll be recommending this alongside The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska. Another crossover from young adult to adult.
My students recommended this over and over again. I loved it! Not going to make it into our school library, a little much for there, but one I would recommend to mature readers. Not a read to rush through, I like coming back to it each day. For those who like watching television this read reads like the screen. I will continue to read this series and I'll watch the series after reading. 5 stars, yeah, I don't give many of those out.
I started teaching English and Spanish at Blancester in 1996. After getting my masters in Library Science, I moved into the library and I've enjoyed connecting people to books ever since!
