lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell I know it's not fair to compare Fangirl to Eleanor and Park, but after reading Eleanor and Park, I was so excited to read this one. It was so flat I couldn't believe it was written by the same author. I didn't like Cather at all, not even a little bit (even her name reminded me of a catheter) and the rest of the cast was so blah. I didn't like the pages and pages of Cath's fanfic. I was convinced (I still kind of am) that Levi was gay. I think Eleanor and Park is one of the best YA books to come out in a long time, but I can't say the same for this one.
