Literally a Fangirl

I'm so excited to talk you about this piece of fiction. Literally it is just a masterpiece!

 
 
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Year Of Publish: 2013 (US), 2014 (UK)
Publisher: St Martin's Press (US), Pan Macmillian (UK)
 

I have found that throughout the whole of this book, the main character Cath has a lot of characteristics that i can relate to. She's antisocial, a fangirl(a bit obvious), scared of the real world and prefers the imaginary world of literature compared to reality. The whole time i couldn't stop reading wanting to find out more(which is kind of bad when i have tons of essays to finish).

What is all about?

Well, the basis of the story is that Cath is going to university, but she prefers to write fanfics of Simon Snow and Baz. They are kind of an imaginary fandom, which i heard from somewhere that Rainbow Rowell is eventually going to write books about them. So that will be quite interesting. But many have said that Simon Snow is very much like the alternate version of Harry Potter, which probably the reason why it wasn't Harry is because of Copyright or something. Getting back to the synopsis, she prefers to write fanfics than going out to discover more about the university and of course does not want to socialise with anyone. It's probably because her twin Wren doesn't want to share with her anymore and decides to things she wants. So it kind of wrecks her plans when two people Levi and Reagan decide to make friends with her
.

What my thoughts are!
 
 
I loved this book! And to put you all out of your misery, i'm going to rate it the first 5 stars in a very, very long time. It was gripping, powerful and something i might do if i ever get the chance to go to university. Obviously it wouldn't be exactly the same to how it would be, as English universitites are very different to American ones- but who cares! It kind of gives confidence to those who aren't as confident and independent, it is like telling you well, you can do things and even though it takes a bit of work, we will all get there in the end. I admire Cath. Not because of the fact that she writes infamous fanfics, but because of her dedication to her belief of her hobby. If only i don't doubt myself, i could be on top of the world!

This is going to be fairly short this week. But i'm planning a very big post over the coming weeks letting you know about some stuff. So keep your eyes peeled- it may be very exciting!

Midsummer's Bottom by Darren Dash

Hello everyone. This week I am going to be reviewing a book which is a little bit more light-hearted and hilarious to the point that chaos ensues. It is based on the work of William Shakespeare, to the point that the original characters such as Puck, Oberon and Titania have roles, but there are new characters which act out the story, but in the way that the originals believe to be the best. However, these new characters do not know anything about this, which makes the twists and turns of chaos to become quite entertaining.

First of all, for those who know of Darren Dash's other pseudonym which deals with children's books should not read this book. The content is for the mature reader, it is clearly shown how it has been written.

I think that the best part about this book is that when starting to read it, having no previous knowledge about the certain Shakespeare's play of A Midsummer Night's Dream, I thought that I would be put off the concept. However, after a few of…

The Gods have spoken! - Mythos by Stephen Fry

I love mythology. That is a fact that many people know in my life. So when I found out that the brilliant mind of Stephen Fry was going to write a book on Greek mythology, I couldn't have been more ecstatic. In three words: perfect bedtime stories.

Did it excel my expectations?

Well, I guess that you could say yeah.

I understand that some people did not like the way that it was written in such simple 'Fry way'. But I found that much more funny.

You see, I find that there is nothing better than drama. In fact, as social beings we all have a certain feel about it. It is something that breathes life within all of us.


You see, you can feel the absolute significance of why a book like this should be read. It brings us back to a time where stories of such marvellous wonders exist. That there is hope out there. That there is a reason why certain events happen as they do.

A reason. That is all we need to keep going on.

So, as I began reading Mythos, it took me back to a time when …

Conditional Love by Cathy Bramley

So hi. Sorry for such a huge period of time where i was absent. There are several reasons as to why that is, personal as well as other big points. Anyway, i'm back and hopefully that means that i will be back for a while, before i may be noticeably absent once again.

Today i have a nice book to come back to this blog. It is called 'Conditional Love' and written by an author from Nottinghamshire called Cathy Bramley.

As you can see the awful picture that i took of this book doesn't really show the homely beauty of the book cover in person. The illustration really identifies what the story is all about - a woman with the aim of getting her dream home. It really shows this with the fact that there is a light on downstairs in the house, a warm hearth.

So because of the fact that somehow i have "connections" with this author, she was very kind in sending various amount of goodies back last year. This included this book, as a signed copy, as well as other books i s…
