    Just like the performers from the club New Directions in the TV series Glee, Sam, Topher, Joey and Mo are misfits who have each other?s backs no matter what. Cash Carter, the TV star, has a secret that, he believes, will destroy his image, should that secret be revealed to the pub...

    I checked this out from the library for something I could listen to while I work. Except now I'm wrapped in a blanket and crying, so there's that. ...

    I read and loved Struck by Lightning and after reading the synopsis, I was expecting the same sort of witty and sarcastic type of prose. What I found was quite disappointing. The voices of all of the characters {yes, we do get 5 POVs throughout the story and random thoughts through...

    "It's a tough world to find yourself in, but an even tougher one to be yourself in." I have always loved Chris Colfer?s novels. His sense of humor melds so perfectly into the genre of YA, it?s like he was born to tell stories about teenagers. His books are always humorous, wit...

    Remember, for every person that doesn?t accept you, you?ll find a dozen who will. It?s a gay law Hi everyone! It?s me - your not so friendly, favorite book basher. To get through this I had to grit my teeth and swallow my screams. There are so many things that made me very a...

    Boy oh boy did I hate read this whole book. We received a box of galleys and this was sitting in there. And it continued to sit there for a while and I got it in my head that someone on the staff needed to read it. I thought to myself well, his kids books are really popular and I've he...

    Full review on my blog, the Snark Theater. And speaking of my blog?talk about a missed snark opportunity. Goodreads updates just aren't as convenient as a good ol' blog post. Like?wow. I started off with an early "eh, 2.5 maybe 3 stars" and it all went downhill. Even an hour ...

    Als einer der größten Glee-Fans überhaupt war dieses Buch an manchen Stellen schon ein Fest. Man merkt die Intention, die Ideen, die präzise Zeichnung der Charaktere... Doch leider geht das alles auf Kosten des Realismus'. Denn 'Stranger Than Fanfiction' krankt vor allem an einer v...

    This is like... a headcanon of a fanfic about a celebrity going on a road trip, but from the celebrity's point of view. Sounds like something you'd find on a Tumblr... but then I wouldn't be surprised if Colfer has stumbled across those blogs, hehehe ^^ ...

    Why I couldn?t finish this book: a fanfiction fan?s perspective This is a not-quite-review I have struggled to write for weeks now, and in the interest of full disclosure, it?s not a full review because I could only make it to page 30 of the book in question. That said, after ...

    Y'all. Do you know how nervous I was to read this book? I love Chris Colfer. Have for literally 8 years. I have watched everything he's acted in, read all his books although I still need to catch up on The Land of Stories and, yes, written fanfiction in which he was involved. ...

    I was very excited for this book, I had read and loved his previous YA novel, Struck By Lightning, so i was very excited to hear that Chris was coming out with another YA novel. And the title further intrigued me, like hello, it had FANFICTION in it! I honestly thought of this book as ...

    Chris Colfer has a very juvenile writing style. It's not as noticeable or bothersome in his Land of Stories books since they're intended to be read by or to children/pre-teens. But when it comes to Stranger Than Fanfiction, the abundance of exclamation points, unnecessary italics, bad ...

    The first half of this book is hilarious. I literally burst into laughter at several different points, causing people to look at me funny. Colfer's snark and sarcasm is used to great effect to illustrate the absurdities of Hollywood, celebrity, and interaction with people who recogniz...

    Full Review on my blog! Stranger Than Fanfiction is a lot of fun, there?s geeking out for the fictional show Wiz Kids, an abundance of lame roadside attractions across the country, and a dozen new life experiences for these small-town teenagers getting ready to enter the next stag...

    This was a magical, sweet, wonderful book. I am still having a headache, plus I am still lost for words on this book, but I want to try to at least voice my feelings on this book! So bear with me! This book was even better than I had hoped, it exceeded all my expectations. I had...

    Thanks so much to Hachette Canada for sending me an ARC of this book for an honest review. As always, all opinions are my own. This story sets itself up to be a light-hearted road trip with a group of friends before college - and I guess it is, but there is a much deeper undertone t...

    This was a quick read and a fast paced story about four super fans and best friends taking a road trip and being joined by their absolute favorite actor, Cash Carter. Cash is the type of character that surprises you. Actually, this whole damn book surprised me. We know from the opening...

    I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. It wasn't amazing. It wasn't horrible. I read it in one sitting, and I enjoyed it well enough, it just wasn't anything spectacular. To tell the truth, I read this book for two reasons. One, it's written by the author who wrote The Land o...

    This book? definitely lives up to the title. It completely stretches the bounds of plausibility to the breaking point. In fact, were this written by anyone else, I would immediately dismiss it as an unrealistic wish-fulfillment story and move on. But this was written by Chris Colf...

    Even though Stranger than Fanfiction felt a tad formulaic at times, I really enjoyed it. This book will speak to anyone who feels that they are a bit different and to anyone who has claimed to be a member of a fandom. The classic trope of the "pre-college" roadtrip is spiced up whe...

    4.5 ? Non credevo che mi sarei messa a piangere così tanto alla fine,eppure...Bellissimo libro veramente,mi aspettavo tutt'altra cosa e ne sono uscita un po più arricchita ? ...

    Stranger Than Fanfiction is a book for which the synopsis really doesn't do the story much justice. True, the book is about teen celebrity and four four graduating high school friends going on a road trip. We find out almost immediately that 3 out of the 4 friends have huge secrets. On...

    Four friends embark on a cross-country road trip in their summer before college. When television star Cash Carter unexpectedly joins them, this trip changes all five of their lives in ways they never anticipated. Stranger Than Fanfiction is a whole lot of fun, there?s geeking out for...

    Wow. I laughed, I cried and I planned several murders. This book was beautifully written and such a unique way to tell this story. I absolutely loved the way the tale turned out, despite all the tears, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who thinks it might be a good idea. ...

    Buddy read with my daughter. She liked it a little more than I did. Her Rating: 5 stars My Rating: 3 stars ...

    Chris Colfer has a very juvenile writing style. It's not as noticeable or bothersome in his Land of Stories books since they're intended to be read by or to children/pre-teens. But when it comes to Stranger Than Fanfiction, the abundance of exclamation points, unnecessary italics, bad ...

    The first half of this book is hilarious. I literally burst into laughter at several different points, causing people to look at me funny. Colfer's snark and sarcasm is used to great effect to illustrate the absurdities of Hollywood, celebrity, and interaction with people who recogniz...

    Full Review on my blog! Stranger Than Fanfiction is a lot of fun, there?s geeking out for the fictional show Wiz Kids, an abundance of lame roadside attractions across the country, and a dozen new life experiences for these small-town teenagers getting ready to enter the next stag...

    This was a magical, sweet, wonderful book. I am still having a headache, plus I am still lost for words on this book, but I want to try to at least voice my feelings on this book! So bear with me! This book was even better than I had hoped, it exceeded all my expectations. I had...

    Thanks so much to Hachette Canada for sending me an ARC of this book for an honest review. As always, all opinions are my own. This story sets itself up to be a light-hearted road trip with a group of friends before college - and I guess it is, but there is a much deeper undertone t...

    This was a quick read and a fast paced story about four super fans and best friends taking a road trip and being joined by their absolute favorite actor, Cash Carter. Cash is the type of character that surprises you. Actually, this whole damn book surprised me. We know from the opening...

    I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. It wasn't amazing. It wasn't horrible. I read it in one sitting, and I enjoyed it well enough, it just wasn't anything spectacular. To tell the truth, I read this book for two reasons. One, it's written by the author who wrote The Land o...

    This book? definitely lives up to the title. It completely stretches the bounds of plausibility to the breaking point. In fact, were this written by anyone else, I would immediately dismiss it as an unrealistic wish-fulfillment story and move on. But this was written by Chris Colf...

    Even though Stranger than Fanfiction felt a tad formulaic at times, I really enjoyed it. This book will speak to anyone who feels that they are a bit different and to anyone who has claimed to be a member of a fandom. The classic trope of the "pre-college" roadtrip is spiced up whe...

    Stranger Than Fanfiction is a book for which the synopsis really doesn't do the story much justice. True, the book is about teen celebrity and four four graduating high school friends going on a road trip. We find out almost immediately that 3 out of the 4 friends have huge secrets. On...

    Four friends embark on a cross-country road trip in their summer before college. When television star Cash Carter unexpectedly joins them, this trip changes all five of their lives in ways they never anticipated. Stranger Than Fanfiction is a whole lot of fun, there?s geeking out for...

    Wow. I laughed, I cried and I planned several murders. This book was beautifully written and such a unique way to tell this story. I absolutely loved the way the tale turned out, despite all the tears, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who thinks it might be a good idea. ...

    Buddy read with my daughter. She liked it a little more than I did. Her Rating: 5 stars My Rating: 3 stars ...

    This book is about five young adults each struggling with different social challenges. Four friends invite their favourite actor on a road trip before heading out to college and it's not the experience any of them were expecting. This book explores the struggles of keeping your tru...

    I really wanted to love this book, I really, really did. I loved Chris Colfer's other books, Land of Stories is one of my favorite middle grade series. He normally has such a great, funny tone to his writing but I just didn't get that in this book. I had to DNF after 60 pages because I...

    I was expecting a lot more from this book, honestly. Okay, getting this out of the way now: I used to be a total Gleek. So when I saw that Chris Colfer had written a book about being a TV star, I was like, Gee, I need to pick this up. I think the one big thing that this book really has...

    "It's a tough world to find yourself in, but an even tougher one to be yourself in." I have always loved Chris Colfer?s novels. His sense of humor melds so perfectly into the genre of YA, it?s like he was born to tell stories about teenagers. His books are always humorous, wit...

    This book? definitely lives up to the title. It completely stretches the bounds of plausibility to the breaking point. In fact, were this written by anyone else, I would immediately dismiss it as an unrealistic wish-fulfillment story and move on. But this was written by Chris Colf...

    Even though Stranger than Fanfiction felt a tad formulaic at times, I really enjoyed it. This book will speak to anyone who feels that they are a bit different and to anyone who has claimed to be a member of a fandom. The classic trope of the "pre-college" roadtrip is spiced up whe...

    Stranger Than Fanfiction is a book for which the synopsis really doesn't do the story much justice. True, the book is about teen celebrity and four four graduating high school friends going on a road trip. We find out almost immediately that 3 out of the 4 friends have huge secrets. On...

    Four friends embark on a cross-country road trip in their summer before college. When television star Cash Carter unexpectedly joins them, this trip changes all five of their lives in ways they never anticipated. Stranger Than Fanfiction is a whole lot of fun, there?s geeking out for...

    Wow. I laughed, I cried and I planned several murders. This book was beautifully written and such a unique way to tell this story. I absolutely loved the way the tale turned out, despite all the tears, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who thinks it might be a good idea. ...

    Buddy read with my daughter. She liked it a little more than I did. Her Rating: 5 stars My Rating: 3 stars ...

    This book is about five young adults each struggling with different social challenges. Four friends invite their favourite actor on a road trip before heading out to college and it's not the experience any of them were expecting. This book explores the struggles of keeping your tru...

    Just like the performers from the club New Directions in the TV series Glee, Sam, Topher, Joey and Mo are misfits who have each other?s backs no matter what. Cash Carter, the TV star, has a secret that, he believes, will destroy his image, should that secret be revealed to the pub...

    Full review on my blog, the Snark Theater. And speaking of my blog?talk about a missed snark opportunity. Goodreads updates just aren't as convenient as a good ol' blog post. Like?wow. I started off with an early "eh, 2.5 maybe 3 stars" and it all went downhill. Even an hour ...

    Als einer der größten Glee-Fans überhaupt war dieses Buch an manchen Stellen schon ein Fest. Man merkt die Intention, die Ideen, die präzise Zeichnung der Charaktere... Doch leider geht das alles auf Kosten des Realismus'. Denn 'Stranger Than Fanfiction' krankt vor allem an einer v...

    This is like... a headcanon of a fanfic about a celebrity going on a road trip, but from the celebrity's point of view. Sounds like something you'd find on a Tumblr... but then I wouldn't be surprised if Colfer has stumbled across those blogs, hehehe ^^ ...

    Why I couldn?t finish this book: a fanfiction fan?s perspective This is a not-quite-review I have struggled to write for weeks now, and in the interest of full disclosure, it?s not a full review because I could only make it to page 30 of the book in question. That said, after ...

    Y'all. Do you know how nervous I was to read this book? I love Chris Colfer. Have for literally 8 years. I have watched everything he's acted in, read all his books although I still need to catch up on The Land of Stories and, yes, written fanfiction in which he was involved. ...

    I was very excited for this book, I had read and loved his previous YA novel, Struck By Lightning, so i was very excited to hear that Chris was coming out with another YA novel. And the title further intrigued me, like hello, it had FANFICTION in it! I honestly thought of this book as ...

    Chris Colfer has a very juvenile writing style. It's not as noticeable or bothersome in his Land of Stories books since they're intended to be read by or to children/pre-teens. But when it comes to Stranger Than Fanfiction, the abundance of exclamation points, unnecessary italics, bad ...

    The first half of this book is hilarious. I literally burst into laughter at several different points, causing people to look at me funny. Colfer's snark and sarcasm is used to great effect to illustrate the absurdities of Hollywood, celebrity, and interaction with people who recogniz...

    This was a magical, sweet, wonderful book. I am still having a headache, plus I am still lost for words on this book, but I want to try to at least voice my feelings on this book! So bear with me! This book was even better than I had hoped, it exceeded all my expectations. I had...

    I really wanted to love this book, I really, really did. I loved Chris Colfer's other books, Land of Stories is one of my favorite middle grade series. He normally has such a great, funny tone to his writing but I just didn't get that in this book. I had to DNF after 60 pages because I...

    This is like... a headcanon of a fanfic about a celebrity going on a road trip, but from the celebrity's point of view. Sounds like something you'd find on a Tumblr... but then I wouldn't be surprised if Colfer has stumbled across those blogs, hehehe ^^ ...

    Why I couldn?t finish this book: a fanfiction fan?s perspective This is a not-quite-review I have struggled to write for weeks now, and in the interest of full disclosure, it?s not a full review because I could only make it to page 30 of the book in question. That said, after ...

    Y'all. Do you know how nervous I was to read this book? I love Chris Colfer. Have for literally 8 years. I have watched everything he's acted in, read all his books although I still need to catch up on The Land of Stories and, yes, written fanfiction in which he was involved. ...

    I was very excited for this book, I had read and loved his previous YA novel, Struck By Lightning, so i was very excited to hear that Chris was coming out with another YA novel. And the title further intrigued me, like hello, it had FANFICTION in it! I honestly thought of this book as ...

    Chris Colfer has a very juvenile writing style. It's not as noticeable or bothersome in his Land of Stories books since they're intended to be read by or to children/pre-teens. But when it comes to Stranger Than Fanfiction, the abundance of exclamation points, unnecessary italics, bad ...

    The first half of this book is hilarious. I literally burst into laughter at several different points, causing people to look at me funny. Colfer's snark and sarcasm is used to great effect to illustrate the absurdities of Hollywood, celebrity, and interaction with people who recogniz...

    Thanks so much to Hachette Canada for sending me an ARC of this book for an honest review. As always, all opinions are my own. This story sets itself up to be a light-hearted road trip with a group of friends before college - and I guess it is, but there is a much deeper undertone t...

    This book? definitely lives up to the title. It completely stretches the bounds of plausibility to the breaking point. In fact, were this written by anyone else, I would immediately dismiss it as an unrealistic wish-fulfillment story and move on. But this was written by Chris Colf...

    Even though Stranger than Fanfiction felt a tad formulaic at times, I really enjoyed it. This book will speak to anyone who feels that they are a bit different and to anyone who has claimed to be a member of a fandom. The classic trope of the "pre-college" roadtrip is spiced up whe...

    Wow. I laughed, I cried and I planned several murders. This book was beautifully written and such a unique way to tell this story. I absolutely loved the way the tale turned out, despite all the tears, and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who thinks it might be a good idea. ...
