|This post is mostly just to gush about how much I loved this book…|
I literally finished it in a day, that’s how great it was.
I put off reading this book for a while. I love Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirland was was really into the fact that her main character, Cath, was super into fanfiction. I grew up loving fanfiction and still read it to this day. It felt like I was hanging out with a friend talking about Harry Potter fanfiction…but I really didn’t want to read Rowell’s book that was Cath’s fanfiction about a series of books that are so close to Harry Potter it’s hilarious.
Once I got passed the idea that I was essentially reading a Harry Potter fanfiction, I was in love with the story. I loved Simon and honestly think he’s a better character than Harry will ever be (and is a lot less whinny), and I was obsessed with Baz. And obviously I loved them together. The plot was engaging, and the twist at the end blew me away.
