"Waiting On" Fangirl

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating!

This week I am excited for...
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? Writing her own stories?
And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind? (From Goodreads)
I LIKE HOW THIS SOUNDS!  A good ol' coming-of-age story with undertones that many can relate to, Fangirl is bound to be a hit!  I'm not saying I've ever been a serious fangirl, but I can get a little attached to my characters.  I cannot wait to read Fangirl, which hits shelves September 10th, 2013.


  1. great minds think alike! This is my WoW today today :-). I think it sounds adorbs, too.

  2. Looking forward to this one too, and yeah I picked it also. :) It seems to be getting popular! Have a good week.

  3. She read some of this at BEA this summer and I'm DYING to read it now.


Thank you for your comment! I absolutely love reading them and responding!
