College freshman Liv is more than just a fangirl: The Starveil movies are her life… So, when her favorite character, Captain Matt Spartan, is killed off at the end of the last movie, Liv Just. Can’t. Deal.

Tired of sitting in her room sobbing, Liv decides to launch an online campaign to bring her beloved hero back to life. With the help of her best friend, Xander, actor and steampunk cosplayer extraordinaire, she creates #SpartanSurvived, a campaign to ignite the fandom. But as her online life succeeds beyond her wildest dreams, Liv is forced to balance that with the pressures of school, her mother’s disapproval, and her (mostly nonexistent and entirely traumatic) romantic life. A trip to DragonCon with Xander might be exactly what she needs to figure out what she really wants.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Review

Okay. Omg. Okay, WOW. HAHA wow. Seriously? That was AMAZING. Like not super duper amazing, but still, pretty darn cool. I have never read a book that RELATES so much, maybe not to me, but to some friends that I know.

If you’re the kind of geeky, fandom person who LOVES writing fanfics, and treat movie characters like they’re your best friend, then this book is for you. Refreshing, spontaneous, and just a whirlwind of awesomeness, this book is MADE for those kind of people.

I’ve never really understood them, but I totally understand them now. The mood swings, the obsessions, the hard work that they put in for the love of their characters. DAMN. The author captured pretty much EVERY aspect of being a rabid fangirl. And you can tell that either she herself used to be a fangirl or she researched about it quite extensively, because it really feels like the book about The Life of A Fangirl.

Another thing I loooove about this book was Xander. He was different, and very suave and funny and I pretty much looked forward to his scenes in this book, because they never fail to make me laugh out loud, or at least smile goofily.

“And what’re you going to do about it?” the Mad Hatter sneered.

As Liv watched, Xander pulled his gloves from his pocket and slapped the Mad Hatter across his face.

He’s definitely officially my book boyfriend, AND HE’S MINE OK. NO TOUCHING. HAHA. I really had fun reading this book! And you definitely should too.
