*Happy New Year!* Review: All the Feels by Danika Stone

on Jan 1, 2018
Happy New Year, runaway readers! The team here at Runaway Pen hopes you're all doing very well and looking forward to a healthy and happy 2018! Thank you so much for sharing in our bookish adventures, we hope to see you back here every Monday for new book reviews. Happy reading! <3



College freshman Liv is more than just a fangirl: The Starveil movies are her life. When her favorite character is killed off, Liv Just. Can't. Deal. She launches an online campaign to bring her hero back to life. Step one: Bribe her best friend, Xander, into helping by making costumes for his steampunk cosplay. Step two: Balance her booming fandom life with school, parental disapproval, and her (nonexistent) love life. Maybe a trip to Dragon Con with Xander would help?



Genre: Young Adult Contemporary 


5 out of 5 Stars 

Review:

I'm really excited to be starting 2018 with a review of one of my favorite books of 2017. 

All the Feels is a fun, fantastic, angsty, romantic trip of a novel and I loved every minute of it! 

Through Liv, the reader finds a fellow fangirl deeply embedded in the fandom life of her beloved Starveil. Danika Stone expertly conveys the passion that we fangirls (and fanboys) feel for our favorite characters. Liv is a perfectly flawed relate-able main character. I think many readers will be able to identify with her obsessions, anxieties and insecurities. She grows tremendously during the novel and I love how she finds her strengths among the things she already loves. 

What can I say about Xander? *dreamy fangirl sigh* Xander is a wonderful, confident, flamboyant cosplayer who dresses steampnk just about every day. During the book Xander is a loyal friend to the end, ever ready to support and encourage Liv. 

Filled my twitter conversations, blog posts and fanfiction All the Feels provides a very full and interesting story wrapped around the craziness of fandom life.

I hardly ever read contemporary fiction but I'm so glad I read outside my comfort zone for this awesome read!
