In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, 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? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

{Top Ten Tuesday} Top Ten 2014 Releases I'm Dying To Read

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and today's theme is "Top Ten 2014 Releases I'm Dying To Read."

1. The Unbound (The Archived #2) by Victoria Schwab So everyone here should know how much I love the fabulous Victoria Schwab, and The Archived, so I'm super duper ready for the next book in the series!! Release Date: January 28, 2014

2. The Retribution of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer #3) by Michelle Hodkin The Mara Dyer series is my very favorite ever, and I am dying to read the last book. Especially after that awful cliffhanger at the end of The Evolution. Release Date: June 10, 2014 (or the day I graduate, I think. Might be the day before I graduate...)

3. City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments #6) by Cassandra Clare I love TMI a ton. I know the latter books have gotten some negative feedback, but I still really enjoy them. I'm really excited to see how the series ends and ties in with the end of Clockwork Princess! Release Date: May 27, 2014
