The Fandom Never Dies

Welcome back friend and fellow book lovers. Now let me be 100% honest when i say I was super reluctant when I got this book. I’ve only read one other book by Rainbow Rowell and I have to be honest in saying that it really wasnt one of my favorites. That being said when I saw Fangirl I was intrigued and torn. This book speaks to my soul on a deeper level than my love of books because my inner fangirl is strong. Between the books I read and the shows i want the fandom life is strong with this one.

I can defiantly say that I relate to this book and a deep level. Cather really is my spirit animal, from her want to take care of her family to her love of a “fictional world” to her awkward and cringe worthy experiences with the opposite sex, and school life. College can be a strange and scary place for everyone, especially when you’re living in a dorm with people you’ve never met before.

Fangirl really illistrats the struggles of growing up and experiencing the real world outside of your own computer screen. It beautifully illistrates the horrible feelings of being awkward and shy and painfully new to the dating game.

Rainbow Rowell Truly hit it out of the park with this one, from one fangirl to fangirls everywhere, life love and friendship are really shown well in this one. For sure a must read!!!

What did you think? Did you like it? Whatever you felt about this book be sure to let me know. and Come back in a few days when i reveal with May’s book of the month is!! thanks guys!

It has to be done

Welcome guys!!! Its time to discuss on of my favorite things to discuss… The Walking Dead.  This post is going to be short and sweet. Beware there are Spoilers ahead!

*****SPOILER WARNING******

When we left our friends last week Rick and Michone had found guns on their sex-cation. This week the happy warm fuzzies were gone. It was a Kingdom episode, and you know what that means,  JERRY!!! I love his character so much. I personally cannot help it. This episode was particularly tough for me because I don’t like seeing people pick on my favorite character. So when he got hit in the face i wanted him to start poppin caps.

The Big thing with this episode was Morgan and Carol’s dynamic. He’s been very big brother to her this whole season, (which I find so endearing) so when carol hurts you see it hurts him too. Carol knows Daryl wasn’t honest about what happened at Alexandria, but she needs to hear it. At first Morgan won’t tell her, he stands behind Daryls decission to protect her, but after watching “the kid” get shot Morgan loses his shit again. By killing Richard you see that He’s accepting that theres a place for everything in this new world. Even killing. He knew by protecting Carol from the loss of Glenn and Abraham he was keeping the kingdom out of the Battle, But now that Carol knows its game on.

Now you know my thoughts of this weeks epoisode feel free to tell me yours.

Everyone Has a Reason To Fear a Boy With a Gun

****MAY CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS****

****TRIGGER WARNING****

I can honestly say that when it comes to books I’ve fallen pray to the thought that “size matters”, the thought that a truly great book needs to come in this big thick book. So when it comes to “This is where it ends”, I didn’t even begin to prepare for what was to come. I truly underestimated it on so many levels.  To say this book was intense really was an understatement of the century. The meat of the story is told from the perspectives of 4 different students in various parts of the same high school during a School shooting, all with some connection to the shooter. Blog feed litters the pages between chapters giving us a glimps of the world around our 4 main Characters as the world process what is it to have friends and family trappped in a very dangerous and the panic and helplessness one can feel. This book brings to light the thoughts and feeling that cross ones mind when they are faced with the difficult decision, Sit safely on the sideline or, Step up and be the hero… even if its going to cost you your life.

Marieke Nijkamp hit it out of the park on this one. Her grasp of the characters feelings during this massive tragedy make this book an excellent and compelling read from start to finish. This is where it ends is a must read for any and all students and teachers, showing everyone that no matter how big or small, good or bad, our actions really do make a difference in someones life. Everyone has their reasons, what are yours?
