This is one of my favorite books. It is a awesome, cute, and so relatable. Cath and Levi are the worlds cutest couple (bookwise).

This is the first book I've readf by Rianbow Rowell, but not the last. She's got a great voice, her characters are interesting and real. I know nothing about fanfiction but it didn't matter - everyone who has ever struggled to fit in can understand why fanfic was so important to Cath. Loved the "excerpts" from the Simon Snow series - I woudl buy Cath's and Wren"s version of the story.

This was my first Rainbow Rowell book I read and it is my absolute favorite one! It's probably because I can relate to being a fangirl, and also have been a huge fan fiction writer myself back in High school. I think everyone should have emergency dance parties all the time!!!!

The first Rainbow Rowell book I've ever read. How do I start?
This book was so relatable. Is it weird to like the dad? I mean he sounded like the best dad ever.
Cath is so adorably awkward and love her personality. I especially love her and Levi. They are beyond the cutest couple ever. They're so sweet and perfect for each other that I would've have given this book 5/5 stars just for that, if only this book was longer because I was so not ready for it to end! why didn't anyone warn me about that?!
Cute. Adorable. Refreshing read. definatly worth the wait.

Adults won't get this book. They won't. Fanfiction isn't something that they're familiar with; in fact a lot of people aren't. I'm not into fantasy fanfiction, I do read fanfic about bands and music, and so do a lot more teens than people realize. I was waiting so long to check this book out, and I wasn't disappointed. I honestly couldn't stand Cath at the beginning of the book, but by the end, I started to like her a little more. It's one of the best books I've read in awhile, and I can't wait to see what else Rainbow Powell puts out.

this book is so amazing!!!!!!! Rainbow Rowell is an interesting and realistic author

This book was fantastic, both in writing, story and character.
Cath reminded me of me so much. The pear-shaped body, the love for writing, and the obsession for a slash-couple. Also, the brown hair and glasses, and how writing with pencil and paper makes it harder for her to write compared to typing.
She and I have a lot in common, it was like reading myself in a different state, older and with an awesome boyfriend.
Levi was super cool, reminds me of one of my friends. Also, who can turn somebody down who brings them coffee?

In chapter 33 i guess near the end of the chapter, when she asked levi if everything was ok ,when he wouldn't let cath on his lap. Then he asked the same question to cath and she said "yeah" then lifted her arms, does that mean she took off her shirt? And if so, had she done it with levi?

When Cath goes off to college, she struggles to find her place as a writer, as a sister, as a friend, and as a daughter. This is a touching, funny story about all the trials and tribulations of a college freshman who is more at home in the fictional world of her favorite series than the “real” world. If you love fanfiction, you will love this book!

In the age of tumblr, fanfiction and fanart, Cath is a relateable character for any teen who has geeked out over a book, tv show or movie. Starting her freshman year of college, Cath is facing several new obstacles. Her twin sister Wren doesn't want to room with her so “they can meet other people.” She is dealing with her father’s mental illness. And college has taken time away from completing her epic online fanfiction Carry On written in the world of Simon Snow (a character reminiscent Harry Potter). On top of it all, Cath might be falling in love with her roommate's boyfriend.

Coarse Language: The "F" bomb is used, though sparingly, throughout the book.

"Months are different in college, especially freshman year. Too much happens. Every freshman month equals six regular months—they're like dog months.”

But there's nothing more profound than creating something out of nothing.
Think about it, Cath. That's what makes a god - or a mother. There's nothing more intoxicating than creating something from nothing. Creating something form yourself!
(Chapter 23)

How do you not like the Internet? That's like saying, 'I don't like things that are convenient. And easy. I don't like having access to all of mankind's recorded discoveries at my fingertips. I don't like light. And knowledge.
