'Fangirl'- Rainbow Rowell: Book Review!

Hi Guys,

Today I will be giving you my third instalment in my 'Zoella Book Club Review' series! I have now made a full page dedicated solely to the series so if you have missed any please check that out. For now, let's get on with the review!


As always, I have tried to keep spoilers to a minimum!

Fangirl's main character is Cather Avery, a freshman at an American University. Her twin, Wren, has been seeking independence from Cath, and their joint Simon Snow obsession. The book is focused on Cath's 'college' experience; making friends with a fellow author, Nick; dealing with her new room mate Reagan; figuring out what to do without Wren; and discovering that she and Levi have a much closer connection than thought. 

I really enjoyed the plot. I thought it had plenty of strings but not so many that it gets confusing. I loved growing with Cath and her relationships because it made the book so much more engaging. I also liked how the 'boy meets girl' factor wasn't overplayed; the book gave a lot of scope on Wren and Cath's relationship.

Character wise: it was fantastic! Everyone was so loveable and I found all of the relationships to be very realistic. There were ups and downs in all of the friendships  which made me so much more invested in the characters! I have to say though, I did not care about Simon and Baz! The interludes of fanfiction- though small- were a bit distracting from the story. At some points I did just have to skip it so I could get back to the main story! I think that just shows how engaging the plot was, though!

My only criticism is that they shouldn't have mentioned Harry Potter!!! Simon Snow , a multiverse made up for Fangirl, is very similar to Harry Potter mentioning Harry just ruined the illusion. Now a separate 'Carry On' book (which I loved) has been released so you can see the differences between the universes! 

Thank you for reading. Please add me to your circles on Google + if you would like to see more of my content! I am trying to reach 100 followers by September 1st and am currently running a competition! Your continued support means the world!

Thanks for Reading

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

Bags:
VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
