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.
My Review :
Are you a fangirl/Fanboy?
Is Fandom an important part of your life?
Do you mourn when your fav fictional character dies?
(I’m looking at you Augustus Waters)
Then, this book is for you.
We all know that moment of disbelief and pain when the main character of a book, movie or show yoy love just dies. And in that moment you’d do anything just for them to be not dead.
Liv is the same as us.
Things I love about this book:
The characters are so relatable and likeable. You just can’t hate them. Liv is so like me. Some people might hate or dislike the obsession, she has for StarVeil and how it affects her, but I totally understood it because I am like that sometimes.
And Xander, the charming gentelmanly best friend every girl should have. I Love him.
The plot is basically just Liv trying to deal with THE TRAGEDY (Fictional character death) and in the meanwhile discovering herself. It’s not too complex, there aren’t any plot twists or something but it’s a contemporary book, so deal with it.
Also, the quotes on top of every chapter! (From different fandoms, you’ve got Harry Potter, Hunger Games and so much)
The writing style of Danika Stone is quite easy to read and like. It isn’t heart-touchingly beautiful but it’s quirky and nice.
Read this book :
* When you’re having the feels and you don’t want to be alone
* When you need something light and nice to read.
* When the fangirl/fanboy in you feels lonely.
* Or just pick it up right now ;);)
Love, Alex 🙂
