This book, I’m not joking, is the ULTIMATE book for a Fangirl who needs a little help figuring out the world. The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy by Sam Maggs is a must have companion for every fangirl or fanboy confused, afraid or in need of more geek knowledge to nearly any fandom imaginable. The number of times I hooted while reading this book surprised me even and I loved all of it.

From Table Top games to Star Wars to Supernatural to Why Did Fox Cancel Firefly to Cosplay to Convention Tips, this has everything in it. Even if you’re already a part of geek culture, this helps expand horizons and makes you want explore a little bit more every time. And if you’re a parent or friend trying to understand terms like ‘fic’, ‘OTP’ and ‘squee’, every definition of these almost foreign words is in here.
This book also contains brilliant interviews from some famous geek girls in the world like Victoria Schwab author of Vicious and the Archived Series and Ashley Eckstein creator of the Her Universe fashion line. Each interview is inspiring, full of love and inspiration in the fandom galaxy.
If you’re a fangirl, this MUST be a part of your shelf. Read it, use it as a manual, a guide, a friend. It is everything rolled into one. It will love you like your favorite TV character and help you create new things like magic. So, I suggest pick this up and dive right in or swim deeper to understand and learn a whole lot more than you know in the lovely world of fannishness.
I rated this magical beauty a 5/5 stars.
