    Britta Lundin's SHIP IT is absolutely delightful, and hoooboy does it break all the YA rules in a really exciting way. First off, I learned so much about fandom, and you can tell right away you're in fantastic hands with Lundin--she knows the world of TV writing and fandom culture insi...

    I can't say I expected something else when I finished Ship It by Britta Lundin. I got exactly what I expected when I first read the synopsis for a book about a '16 year old fan girl who is obsessed with the show called Demon Heart', who meets an actor from the show at a panel and asks ...

    Oh my goodness, I love everything about this book! I really needed something fun and this was just perfect, and surprisingly nuanced as well. Ship It is in many ways a love letter to fangirls and to awkward teenagers who are trying to figure out who they are. Claire is a 16-year-old gi...

    I absolutely loved this book! The characters were great, and loved books about fandoms. Claire was a great and interesting protagonist going through a clear arc about friendship, love, and discoveries about her own sexuality. Forest, the other protagonist, is the hero of the show that ...

    Folks, this is the book I've been waiting for. Fandom is so close to my heart, especially the kind of fandom depicted in this book, and I've so wanted someone to give us a voice in a way that is honest, powerful, and authentic. THIS IS THAT BOOK. I always worry with fandom books that t...

    I shade my eyes and look out and see?girls. Women. Moms, daughters, friends. All screaming. ?Fangirls,? I whisper to Rico Lawd. This book is like Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl but worse (if that's even possible). Y'all know how much I love that book. Holy shit this was bad. ...

    I have never hated a book as much as I hate this one. It's cringey, all the characters are actually awful, and almost every single thing that happens is ridiculous to the point where it doesn't even try to be realistic. Of course while lecturing on and on about things that, you know...

    hi here are my official Blurb Thoughts: I can't stop smiling about this book--a winsome, emotionally rich joyride through the parallel worlds of fame and fandom and self-discovery. This is the perfect story for our current moment, as vibrant and funny as it is thoughtful and politica...

    A story of fandoms, fanfic, and finding yourself. Claire is obsessed with the show DemonHeart; she has watched each episode multiple times, reads all the fanfic, and even writes some of her own. She couldn't be more excited when she finds out that the actors will be at the local Com...

    SPOILERS. Claire is a bitch. There, I said it. She is an incredibly selfish person who can?t see past her own nose long enough to see how her actions influence others. She successfully hurts Tess, Jamie (whose portrayal as the ?villain? is its own issue), and Forest and...

    So great! Super adorable girl/girl teen romance that also feels very real and flawed (with an on-the-page pansexual identified character!). I really liked how Lundin resisted the urge to make her characters 'good.' Not only does this book deal beautifully with fandom, shipping, fan fic...

    You should totally check this book out when it came out next year. Amazing characters, a very good representation of fandom, shipping and fanfiction culture and an amazing F/F ship. Loved it! It?s very relatable, funny and fresh. ...

    A copy of this novel was provided by Hachette Australia for review. Likes 1) How much Britta Lundin got fandom I really like reading stories about characters with fandoms they?re passionate about because they hit very close to home. I have fandoms I?m passionate about, and...

    1.5* for this toxic & questionable read. I'll start by saying I admire Lundin's decision to write about a topic that isn't talked about much in fandoms, the downsides. This is NOT a cutesy feel-good read like FANGIRL; I kind of wish the cover depicted that, because this was so m...

    3.5 stars. The cover may imply otherwise, but this is actually a very intense, sometimes even dark, story. Not dark as in terrifying, but as in ??the fandom world has gone bloody mad??. Fans gone wild. The story centers around two key characters: Claire, a fanfiction wr...

    Thank you Netgalley for providing me a free review copy in exchange for an honest review Hey, look. It's a book about fandom. Never seen that before. Ship It is another in a long line of fandom related books, but this one had a technical aspect to it that not a lot of other books ha...

    * I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review* It?s truly astounding to me that dozens of people read this book before it got to this final form--agents, editors, trusted friends and loved ones--and presumably not one person thought to compass...

    ?I want you to picture something for a second. I know you feel like an underdog?But imagine if you were a teenager again, and, instead of being a scrawny, uncool, nerdy kid, you were a scrawny, uncool, nerdy, gay kid. Or? what if you were all that plus black? Or disabled? Or tra...

    I should start out with something at least trying to be witty here like ?I don?t ship it? or this book could be called ?shit it? instead of what it is but my brain is melted from reading this garbage so here we are. I?ll get right in to it, this book is riddled with pro...

    Okay, we got this in manuscript form so there is no preliminary ARC or galley ready with a cover but the publishing rep and our book buyers were debating back and forth about the subject matter. For those that are big fans of genre based pop culture shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer,...

    NOTE: 5/9/2018: I have not read the book yet. Below is my expectation of the book based on the summary. So basically it's a book validating the whiny, entitled shippers who throw a bitch-fit whenever their slash pairing isn't made canon and the actors and crew-members refuse to vali...

    I knew I had to read this book after my favorite gossip site tore it to shreds... and good god, they were spot on. To start, let me just say that it glorifies everything that is wrong with fan culture. It's one of the most infuriating novels I've ever read. ?And I wrote 2000 words on...

    This book is all about fandom and queerness, so obviously I thought I would love it. I did not AT ALL. Yet it started very well ; it was funny and very relatable. Fandom + lgbt characters: my whole life. The book is divided into two points of view; Claire, a teenage girl obsessed w...

    1 Star Fetishization ? Representation There are some reads so poorly constructed I don?t hesitate to slap a one-star on them and move on. But this book has lingered in my thoughts for weeks... because it?s a completely different kind of awful. Because this really, really t...

    Damn. This was amazing. I read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and honestly it was the most boring and disappointing book ever - and I've read some that are similar and I never found a book that accurately described what it was like to be a fangirl. This book gets pretty darn close. I...

    Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with an eARC in exchange for my honest review. Bleh. I should?ve known that a book by a Riverdale writer would be annoying and problematic. I have lots of feelings and I?m not completely settled on my 3-star rating. I?d even say if Goodr...
