This is a backlog review, meaning I read this either before starting to blog or it got lost somewhere along the hectic journey of blogging.
Fangirls get a bad rap all the time – people say we’re weird, hysterical, obsessed, certifiable. But those people don’t understand.
Just because we’re fangirls, doesn’t mean we’re crazy.
It’s important you know that up front. Because everything I’m about to tell you is going to seem . . . well, crazy.
When/Why I Bought It
I got this from Waterstones and I was a bit unsure about it from the beginning. The cover didn’t work for me but the blurb pulled me in. It was cheap enough so I worked out that it was worth the risk.
I’ve never read a book with dark humour quite like this. It was brilliant. The jokes are definitely inappropriate, and that’s why I loved them so much. It’s unusual to get humour like this in YA so it was definitely worth it. The only bit of humour I wasn’t completely on board with were the sexual harassment jokes, but it did fit the theme of teenage fantasies so I’m not going to complain too much about that.
It is definitely written for the boy band generation, which I somehow sort of managed to avoid. I say ‘sort of’ because I’ve still gone through that phase of obsessing over a band. I just love the way it portrays crazy fan girls.
It could easily be One Direction fanfiction with how bizarre it is, but I’m not complaining about that! It just made it even more funny and painfully relatable.
I started this book expecting not to like it, and I finished loving it! I just wish it had a nicer cover!
