  1. First of all, I’d like to say you have fantastic taste in books. I was looking through the list of books you reviewed and I was surprised to see so many of my favorites on there. I was wondering if you’ve read “Fangirl” by Rainbow Rowell? I saw “Carry On” by her on your list, and “Fangirl” actually mentions “Carry On” quite a bit. If you haven’t already, and you liked “Carry On,” you should definitely read “Fangirl.” I’ve read a lot of books by Rainbow Rowell this year, and “Fangirl” was my favorite. 🙂

    • Thank you so much! I have read Fangirl actually, bu surprisingly I didn’t like it as much as I loved Carry On! I didn’t really relate to Cath who was way to introverted for my taste, but I LOVE how Carry On is mentioned so much in it!
