Sooo, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell was voted as the best Young Adult Fiction book in the 2013 Goodreads Choice Awards. But I already knew it was brilliant, so here's 5 reasons to read Rainbow Rowell's new book, Fangirl:

File 179881. It is a book about being a writer - the study, the anguish, the sillies, the delights...

2. ...and the fanfic.
'I don't have a weird thing with Simon Snow*,' Cath said. 'I'm just really active in the fandom.'

3. The bubble of happiness that is Levi.

4. The adorable cover comic - by Noelle Stevenson, who is made of rainbows and funny and awesome.

5. It was runner-up in the 2013 Goodreads Choice Awards. (Yup - Rainbow Rowell took first AND second place!)


Are you a Rainbow Rowell fan? Or did a different book make your top read of 2013?



*a fictional book series within the world of Fangirl. May bear certain resemblences to Harry Potter.
