I received an e-ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Title: All the Feels
Author: Danika Stone
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Publication Date: June 7, 2016
Summary (from Goodreads): 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.
All the Feels is an incredibly relatable book about, you guessed it, fandoms. This book has everything from cosplay to fanfiction and a main character who leads an online rebellion. An epic friendship made the book even more enjoyable, and I would definitely recommend it.
All the Feels is the ultimate books for fangirls! Literally all the aspects of being in a fandom are there! I loved reading about the forums, the fanfiction, the cosplay, and the conventions. Honestly, Danika Stone really understands the life of a fangirl. This book is one the only fandom books I have ever read, and I definitely enjoyed it.
Liv is such relatable main character in All the Feels. She is a fellow fangirl who is so crushed by her favourite character’s death that she actually leads an online rebellion. It was a nice change to have a more modern main character who spends her life online rather than a cheesy character who has so many adventures outdoors. Though I feel like Liv was a little too dramatic at times, I still found her to be likeable.
I loved the theme of friendship in All the Feels. Xander and Liv have such an amazing relationship where they collaborate on fandom videos, even though they aren’t really into the same fandoms. The fact that they are always there for each other, typically at the coffee shop or McDonalds, was just so sweet. They just have the kind of friendship that is actually goals.
All the Feels is a book all about fandoms starring a main character who is a major fangirl.The friendship in the book was so adorable and a relationship that I dream of having. I would recommend this book to fans of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell as they have similar fandom elements.
