Waiting On Wednesday

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan . . .

But for Cath, being a fan is her life — and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?
Release Date: September 10th, 2013 from St. Martin's Press


  1. I love just how different this cover is, and the premise is definitely awesome! I think I've seen it around before, but I'm definitely adding it to my TBR now. Great choice, Danna :)

  2. This is such a cute cover! It seems like a winner just because of that.

    My WoW

  3. I'm both excited and sad for this as I've already read Attachments and Eleanor and park; once I read Fangirl, I won't have any other Rowell books to read :(


Comments are like bananas:) yum yum yum
