The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth

Yessss. Guys, this is the book I’ve been waiting for. The Miseducation of Camerson Post is an LGBT novel that shows a sad reality, unlike a lot of media that makes ‘the average… Continue reading

The Uglies Series (Uglies, Pretties, Specials, Extras) by Scott Westerfeld

We’re going old school today, kids. The Uglies Series came out out between 2005 and 2007, which, in technical terms, was a hella long time ago. Two disclaimers before we get started: 1.… Continue reading

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

Two of the best contemporary YA authors wrote a book together in 2010, if you haven’t heard. It’s about depression and musicals. It’s also unapologetically gay, which is always a plus. What did you… Continue reading

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

When I first saw this book: Oh, how nice! A pretty blue cover and cute drawings. This will be a happy story. After I finished this book: WHY. I have a lot of… Continue reading

Updates and News and Stuff for The Fan Girl Space

On a post from a few weeks ago, I mentioned some things I want to do with this site. 1. Book Recommendations Feature – DONE. I tried to make my own using the… Continue reading

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

The last post on The Fan Girl Space was on a book about a recent high school graduate who goes on a road trip with his best friend. This book is about…uh, sadder… Continue reading

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green

And we continue to trudge on through all of John Green’s books. (That was a joke. Sort of.) (It’s not my fault he’s so popular. Or, it’s not my fault in our stars– okay,… Continue reading

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

I hesitated to make a post for this book because it’s so ‘girly’, which is stupid, because I’m pretty sure, and correct me if I’m wrong- boys have feelings too.  Related, I love how this book… Continue reading

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews

No, this book isn’t like The Fault In Our Stars just because it’s also YA and deals with the topic of cancer. Can we agree on that? Good. Moving on. I like this… Continue reading

New Ideas For TheFanGirlSpace

Yes, I’m aware probably no one is paying attention to the updates of a week-old site, but Einstein failed English. (I think the argument is supposed to go something like that). Anyway, so… Continue reading

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I read this book before I watched Groundhog’s Day. Still, I don’t see how this is a ‘copy’ of that movie, seeing as they have literally one shared characteristic. You know what has… Continue reading

We Should Hang Out Sometime by Josh Sundquist

Is this book fiction? No. Is it young adult? Kind of. Has the author, Josh Sundquist, been shamelessly promoting it via half the youtube channels I follow? Yes. So I eventually gave in… Continue reading

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

“Stargirl?” you may say. “That’s that dumb book all the girls were reading in the 7th grade!” To which, I say, “shut up! Shut up right now!” So here’s my introduction: NYT bestseller,… Continue reading

Looking For Alaska by John Green

The 10 year anniversery of this book just passed last month, but that doesn’t stop it from still being an all-time favorite in YA circles. So what did you think? This book has… Continue reading

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Like all of Rainbow Rowell’s books, this wasn’t a disappointment. Light and funnier than Eleanor and Park (there were onions every reading that one. So many onions), but more relatable to many YA… Continue reading

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz

Before talking about what’s actually inside the book, can we please just admire the cover? This is the prettiest book cover I’ve ever seen. (A+ for illustrator Chloë Figlia). I loved this book.… Continue reading

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn

The first thing to say is that the book is different from the movie. Not that I didn’t love both, but they were different. I, for one, was perpetually annoying with Norah. She… Continue reading

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Oh my goodness, this book. Possibly the one book that I’ve never heard anybody say anything negative about. But, hey, if you didn’t like it, that just makes your opinion much more interesting.… Continue reading

I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson

  This book contains as many references to art as David Levithan’s books contain references to music (that’s a lot). That, plus the constant use of metaphor, kind of makesI’ll Give You The Sun… Continue reading

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

  I’ve heard a lot of people say that you someone will either love or hate this book. What did you think? The characters in We Were Liars had many ‘first world problems’.… Continue reading
