Are you a fangirl? - Do you survive boring classes or meetings by imagining your favorite TV couple making out? - Have you posted a lengthy diatribe online defending a fictional character? - Have you gotten carsick from reading fan fiction on your smartphone? - Has Netflix presented you with the "Are you still watching?" button at least once? If you answered yes, you are a fangirl. (But you already knew that!) Fangirling is more than a hobby; it's a way of life for an enormous community. As a fangirl, you are passionate, intelligent, and creative. But sometimes focusing on the fictional can keep you from putting those qualities to use in your everyday life. Rather than using your pop culture passions to avoid your real-life problems, you can tackle issues like stress, anxiety, and low self-esteem by turning fan life into inspiration. If you enjoy flailing over badass fictional ladies or speculating over plot points but would like to carve more space for the narrative of your own life, this is the book for you. The Fangirl Lifeis a witty guide to putting your passions to use in your offline life, whether it's learning how writing fan fiction can be a launching point for greater career endeavors, or how to avoid the myths that fictional romance perpetuates. Start translating those fictional obsessions into some bold personal moves and let The Fangirl Lifehelp you become your own ultimate fangirl.… (més)

The Fangirl Life was not written with my age group in mind. It's targeted for a considerably younger audience. However, that doesn't mean I didn't get anything out of it. In fact, it was one of the best books for me as I transitioned from college to working full-time and handling it more like the younger me who flailed through everything than the BAMF I had learned how to be as I settled into my 30's.

Looking back to what happened when I transitioned from the Army to college life, I wish I had had The Fangirl Life then, too, because somehow, I forgot everything I learned when I was going to therapy. Smith reminded me of all those techniques I had learned to handle life as an adult, but she also taught me that my fangirling didn't have to be separate from the rest of me or from those techniques. Being a fangirl is who I am, and my life works best when I accept it, own it, and apply it to the areas of my life that I want to improve.

The best thing that The Fangirl Life gave me? In an office full of people I didn't think I had anything in common with, I found out that one of my coworkers has a major crush on Captain America. While Bruce Banner is more my type, we've had several fun conversations about all things Avengers; something that wouldn't have happened if I hadn't let my fangirl flag flutter in the breeze. ( )

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review. This does not change my rating or the content of the review.

The Fangirl Life is a self-help book, but it's not your usual self-help book. (I have enough of those – thank you, A&D.) No, The Fangirl Life is super sparkly special. It's written for fangirls (and fanboys) by a fangirl. (She's also a licensed therapist, so she knows what she's talking about.)

I'll admit, I went into the book thinking it would be more lighthearted, but Smith took the subject of dealing with "ALL THE FEELS" seriously, and it was sobering but also very...nice. People on the outside don't realise how passionate fangirls and fanboys are about their fandoms. Books, movies, TV shows –whatever it is you care about– have the power to make us soar and break our hearts. We suffer real hangovers when things end, and I know that I've fallen into deep depressions when characters I loved died. It's because of the power fictional stories have over my moods that I need this book. If you're the same, then you do as well.

That being said, while the book does genuinely take the approach of helping you work through the stresses and emotions of being a fan, it balances the serious with the playful. There are cute illustrations, cartoons and real-life quotes from other fangirls all over the place, as well as references to numerous TV shows and movies.

The book also aims to help you transition from Fangirl to BAMF (that's BadAss Muffin Fudger). There are so many great examples of how Smith took common advice that I've seen before in strictly professional arenas and transformed them into fangirl-relevant strategies. One such example is that of the Power Poses. Amy Cuddy of Harvard Business School said, in a TED Talk, that certain poses could make you feel more confident and powerful; Smith took that idea and made it more relatable, naming poses that you can immediately associate with scenes in TV shows and movies, such as "The Commander" (standing at the head of the table and leaning forward with both hands on the surface).



Honestly, as someone who is about to start an MBA to become a future leader, this book is just what I needed. It combines my desire to become a stronger, better, more confident version of myself –AKA a BAMF– with my love for fangirling. (Yes, I love the things I fangirl over, but the act of sharing and squealing over those things also gives me life.)

The book does seem to focus more on TV and movie fandoms, but if you fangirl over anything, you need this book.

Taken from the back of the ARC copy:


- Do you survive boring classes or meetings by imagining your favorite TV couple making out?
- Have you posted a lengthy diatribe on the Internet defending a fictional character?
- Have you gotten carsick from reading fan fiction on your smartphone?
- Has Netflix presented you with the "Are you still watching?" button at least once?


I can answer yes to all of those, and if you can as well...
