"Cath and Wren are identical twins and until recently they did absolutely everything together. Now they're off to university and Wren'd decided she doesn't want to be the one half of a pair anymore - she wants to dance, meet boys, go to parties and let loose. It's not so easy for Cath. She would rather bury herself in the fan fiction she writes where there;s romance far more intense than anything she's experienced in real life.

Now Cath has to decide whether she's ready to open her heart to new people and new Experiences, and she's realising that there's more to learn about love than she ever thought was possible...

What I Thought

*SPOILERS*

I've heard good things about this book and couldn't wait to pick it up. I knew I would relate to it from just the title. Having used to write fan fiction daily for a good few years I knew I would relate to Cath instantly and I did!

Cath is someone I could be best friends with, I can see a lot of myself in her character. I find her such a cute character and found myself rooting for her to find a boyfriend and have a good life. Wren is the better twin in all sense and I found myself rolling my eyes at how she just brushed her sister off on many occasions. Near the end of the book I did end up feeling sorry for Wren and felt myself liking her a bit more then I did at the start. I think Rowell really did capture what twins are about and how they are with each other.

When reading the book I was in two minds who Cath would end up with. The dark, mysterious writer called Nick or the bright, bubbly, smiley Levi. When Cath started seeing Nick and writing stories together I was so adamant that they would get together because they had so much in common but then the closer Levi got to Cath I started to have doubts. However Nick became a douche and Levi won my heart, how can he not!

I actually didn't want this book to end as it was such a cute story and I loved the way that Rowell incorporated Cath's and sometimes Wren's fan fiction which was great. (Two Stories in one! Hello). I loved the way that it also ended with Cath reading the thing she loved to the person she loved, which I thought was so romantic and lovely.
