Woman Crush Wednesdays are BACK!!
After a long break I’m bringing these weekly posts back because I missed them and I’ve been reading so many books lately that there’s so many wonderful ladies to discuss.
First up is Cath Avery from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
Cath is pretty, quirky, shy, and anxious. What I love most about her is she’s not starting a revolution or a princess or anything crazy. She’s just a normal girl going through her first year at college and dealing with the stress of being away from her dad, and her twin sister, Wren, isn’t really there for her.
I related to Cath a lot. She loves books and writing and she does a lot of fanfiction. She’s basically the queen of fanfiction actually. Moreover, I liked that Cath had her own issues. She’s painfully shy to the point that she sometimes doesn’t eat because she didn’t know where the dining hall was and didn’t want to ask.
I liked that Cath wasn’t this crazy confident character that kicked ass but instead was a normal, relatable girl who eventually learned how to stand up for herself and went after what she wanted. She’s so relatable and I just wanted the best for her and rooted for her throughout the novel.
If you haven’t read Fangirl yet you should definitely check it out. It’s worth a read.
