Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell, 11/12

Spellcheck says fangirl isn’t a word, what.


 Rainbow Rowell stole from my diaries. Also, pretty sure ‘Rainbow’ is a pseudonym. So’s mine; can you tell?

 I have an insane mom. I write constantly, or did, at any rate. College is hard for me. I’ve spent a lot of time in my dorm or at the library. 

 Cath has an insane dad. She has a hard time during her 1st semester in college. She spends a lot of time in her dorm room or at the library.

 The 2nd half/ semester was romantically inclined. Like Carrie Fisher’s diary. 

 Yet, something feels hollow. It could be post-book grief. I related on every level. But what if I read this before I went to college? How would it have affected me then? 

 Everything is breezy. There’s some pretty heavy stuff; mental health, 1st time in college, estranged mom, etc. Yet none of it sinks deep. It’s like reading a bunch of essay intros, you know what it’s about, but you’re not filled up on the topic. 

 I recommend it for anyone in, bound for, or thinking about college. Have you read it? Did the timing (before, after, during) affect the way you thought about it?

    1. I almost don’t trust my computer guys because I constantly have to go in,but I’ve gone in so many times that they’re the only computer guys I’m comfortable leaving my laptop wit. It’s a vicious cycle!
