Hi, my name is J and…I’m a fangirl. An out and out fangirl who’s decorated shirts for midnight premieres, been to book signings, wrote a couple (dozen) sneaky fanfictions, and Netflix binged fandoms harder than a coke addict. So Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, a story of a girl attempting to find her identity post-fandom, really jived with me. I could relate to Cath, the silly inner monologues wondering how her favorite characters would react to the happenings of her life and the social anxiety at trying to explain the obsession to other people.

Rainbow Rowell’s novel Landline revolves around a failed comedy writer named Georgie McCool who is given another chance to either stay with her husband Neal or finally be with her best friend and writing partner Seth.
When McCool’s cell phone dies, she plugs in an old rotary phone that magically links her to the past. When she attempts to call her husband, McCool quickly realizes that she’s talking with college-aged Neal, who is contemplating breaking up with her past self. Over the course of the novel, as McCool talks with her husband’s past self, she remembers why she fell in love with him in the first place, but the couple must decide if love is enough to sustain their relationship or if McCool would be better off with Seth.
