Waiting on Wednesday: Fangirl

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can’t wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I’m particularly excited for…


“About a girl who would rather live inside of someone else’s stories than risk living her own; a coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family and first love.” -Goodreads

Rainbow Rowell is one of the best authors I discovered this year, so of course I am super excited about the release of another young adult book from her, expected publication 2013. From the summary, Fangirl seems like the perfect story for our times: the joys and trials of growing up told from the point of view of a girl who prefers living inside other people’s stories. I am also interested to see how Rowell portrays the culture of fanfiction, something that I don’t think has been explored in YA lit as of yet. Rowell is introducing a whole new aspect of adolescence to the YA genre, and I have no doubt it will be just as fantastic as Eleanor & Park was.
