Fangirl Pickup Lines:
"I ship us."
"You’re hotter than the bottom of my laptop."
"You’re so perfect, you could be a fictional character."
"If you were part of a YA love-triangle, I’d be on Team You."
"You’re so perf, I can’t even."
Something strange is going on. Animals are looking at you sideways. Things fall off desks when you walk by. You have a sudden hankering for red meat, and you wake up with muddy feet. Did you recently have a birthday? We bet all this funny business started right after that.
Look in the mirror: Do you have green eyes? If not, does your crush? While less than 2% of the population has green eyes, independent studies have revealed that 90% of them are currently living in a YA novel.
You have next to no adult supervision in your life.Whether your adult guardian (there’s probably only one) is missing, working long hours, off fighting werewolves, or just plain clueless, you’re left to your own devices most of the time. This leaves you free to do activities including but not limited to marrying a ghost, overthrowing a postapocalyptic government, and driving a pickup truck while texting, clutching a giant iced coffee, and thinking soulfully about souls.
Within the past few weeks, two hot, adoring guys have come into your life.If one is a dark-haired bad boy and the other a mischievous yet trustworthy blond, just accept that you’re living in a YA novel now, and cross your fingers it’s a series.
You or someone you know is named Cam, Cameron, or Cammie. Also watch out for names that can be shortened to Kat.
Your world’s looking a little bit…whitewashed.And if you do know someone of color, they likely have skin that one might compare to a cafe au lait, mocha, or other beverage currently sold at Starbucks. (Note: If people are looking even whiter than usual, you may be living in a YA novel about vampires. Or zombies. I’m sorry.)
You have an archnemesis. We hate to break it to you, but most people don’t have to deal with someone who is single-mindedly devoted to ruining their life. This goes double if you were inadvertently responsible for your archnemesis becoming a mutant/losing control of their space colony/falling out of their dress at prom.
You just found out you’re descended from a race of creatures that has something to do with souls. Or angels, or demons, or vampires, or seeking, or protecting, or vengeance, or gods. If your family photo album is actually a skin-bound Necronomicon you found in a cave, you’re probably living in a YA novel.
Your friends keep saying things like, “Either I send him south in handcuffs or in a Chicago overcoat.” Wait a minute…you might actually be living in a noir. Lucky!
"I totally read those." - Most Common Sentence By Liars Who Just Read The Wikipedia Summaries
There are certain songs or poems, or books, or even just sentences that hit you so hard, that make such an impact on you, that you want to consume them just so they will always be a part of you forever, but all you can do is listen to them on repeat, or reread, and hope you never forget them.
I love knowing what these things are for people. What are their favorite songs, lines, quotes, books? Ah.
This edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “The Imp of the Perverse,” designed by Helen Friel, must be destroyed to be properly read. Friel explains, “‘The Imp of the Perverse’ discusses the voice inside all of us that makes us to do things we know we shouldn’t do. Each page is perforated in a grid system with sections of the text missing. Readers must follow the simple instructions to tear and fold specific sections to reveal the missing text. Books are usually precious objects and the destruction is engineered to give the reader conflicting feelings, do they keep the book in it’s perfect untorn form? Or give into the imp and enjoy tearing it apart?
Also Rainbow Rowell is officially my hero
We’re out there, I promise. And we all need to talk about it too.

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey?
Oooh, I’ve never heard of it. It’s going on the list! Thanks. I’m actually surprised so many people are answering. To everyone who has recommended me something tonight: I LOVE YOU. I’ll keep posting the responses I get so everyone can see the great picks!
'The Maze Runner' series is decent, anything by Rainbow Rowell, 'The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight' is pretty cute too.
I was in love with Fangirl, so you’re right I should read her other books! Thank you so much. I’ve never heard of the other two so I will check them out. I really appreciate it.
I’ve been wanting to check out some of the books on this list: best-books.publisherswe… but have not had the time, so I really can’t recommend them. Out of the 13 categories, you should be able to find something, tho—hope it helps.
I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to send me that! I’m going to check it out right away! Thanks:)
