I don't understand why so many "fluffy" books have to include so many harmful cliches:

-Female on female hate: Liv HATES Arden (Main Love Interests (MLI)'s cute, perfect, blinde, perky, GF for NO reason.

-Supporting characters "goodness" with a world full of horrible characters: Seriously, EVERY male that isn't MLI is a horrible, rotten asshole. Another possible love interest who is kinda sweet? Big asshole in an unrealistic, over-the-top manner. Liv's mother's boyfriend is so redneck and cartooni

I loved the idea of this book when I first saw the summary of this book. And don’t get me wrong, I still believe that this book—re-written with a completely new cast—has loads of potential among the fan community. I just don’t get why this book was ever written with this particular godforsaken cast. It’s one thing to write cute and fluffy, but one completely other to write a book that borders on childish, whiney and worst of all, hateful.

My first complaint with the book—my most pre-dominant pro

I received this E-ARC via Macmillan Children's Publishing Group and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I am also participating in the Sunday Street Team for this book.

I had heard about this book through GR. At the time I didn't really pay attention to it. Then when I joined the Sunday Street Team for the author's other book Edge of Wild I noticed that the author was having another book coming out this year. Honestly the first

This was where she felt like home.

[...] She needed this like she needed air.

Reading All the Feels was like coming home.

Why do I say this?

All the Feels was a lovely, heartwarming book about a college fangirl, Liv Walden, for whom the Starveil movies are her life. Refusing to accept the death of her favorite character, Matt Spartan, in the latest movie, Liv starts a #SpartanSurvived movement online that makes her Internet famous. With her best friend Xander, actor and steampunk cosplayer e

All the Feels is an incredibly relatable book about, you guessed it, fandoms. This book has everything from cosplay to fanfiction and a main character who leads an online rebellion. An epic friendship made the book even more enjoyable, and I would definitely recommend it.

All the Feels is the ultimate books for fangirls! Literally all the aspects of being in a fandom are there! I loved reading about the forums, the fanfiction, the cosplay, and the conventions. Hones

This was a fun and relatable, quick read and I loved the inclusion of a fandom.

For those that loved "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell or even "Obsidian" by Jennifer L Armentrout, I would recommend this novel. Both centre around a character that has a true passion towards fiction (whether it be fan fiction in "Fangirl" or a book blog in "Obsidian"). Personally, I relate and I loved reading of a character that had that same passion towards fiction. Often, I don't see that in novels and I really liked h

When I started All The Feels, I had no idea what I was getting in to, but this is actually one of the most fun and swoon-worthy books I have ever read in my life. Now I'm a bit of a fangirl, but I am in no means part of any kind of fandom. I love shows, but I don't get crazy over them, although I will confess that once upon a time, I used to read fanfiction about the band Simple Plan. Just one story, and it was the best story ever, but I used to be crazy obsessed with them, so when Quizilla was ...more

ALL THE FEELS does, in fact, bring all the feels. Anyone who's ever been involved in fandom will be squeeing and nodding vigorously from the very first page. I know I was. I can't tell you how many times I've mourned the loss of beloved characters who died (or ignored cannon and insisted they are still alive, somewhere, drinking hot chocolate and wearing fuzzy socks, COMPLETELY SAFE AND ALIVE. YES). So the fact that Liv fights back against cannon and sparks the fandom flame to create change is t ...more

I love, love, love this book!

Things this book has:
- A positive outlook on what life is like as fangirls and guys!
- A relatable and likable main character. Liv is EVERY fangirl and guy. Her "real life" is just as relatable as she's still so unsure of herself and what she wants to do with her life.
- A slow-burn romance with some great swoon-worthy moments! Seriously, I love Xander. He is just THE BEST. He's confident, charming, and incredibly unique. I mean homeboy is bi and proud, which is just s

I really wanted to love this. It started out good: the chapter titles are references to different fandoms, which is really cool!

I bought this book for the sole reason that this has a bisexual character (and they actually say he is bi). I’m still trying to figure myself out, but for now, I consider myself bisexual. Lately, however, I started thinking I might be pansexual instead. Anyway, I want to support more book

This is the type of book that is super relatable for a lot of people. Liv is a heroic won't take that shocking and bullshit death of a character fangirl.

I'm not even sure where to start with this. While I had no problem diving right into this book, I think it would be useful to have a glossary or at least some explanation of some of the fandom terms used. Not everyone is going to know what an AU is. Other than the novelty of this book being about Dragon Con and fandom, there is nothing really here that I liked. Xander is so over the top he is a parody, and so is Liv. Her mother has real concerns about her daughter getting so involved in fandom t ...more

All the Feels is a young adult standalone by Danika Stone. I think this is a book that fandom lovers, of any fandom, will love completely. All The Feels just made me squirmy with happiness. I really, really loved this one. If you like cons, if you like fanfiction- if you know what terms like AU and shipping and OTP are, this is the perfect book for you. It is a whole lot of fun.

Like with Sarvenaz Tash's The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love, All the Feels's strong suit is definitely the depiction of fandom and especially of the con experience. I'm especially glad considering All the Feels is about Dragon*Con, and D*C is MY con. Literally everything—dancing in the atriums, the tight crowds in the dealer rooms, the eclectic groups of mixed costumed fans (especially genderbent cosplay, boys in Disney princess costumes in particular), even the scene depicting am run-in with ...more

My dad's a huge sci-fi fantasy fan and a lot of my childhood memories are intrinsically linked with Wars, Trek, and Galactica. I remember the 20th Anniversary Special Edition and my dad and Uncle Ed screaming that Han Shot FIRST. I was nine. But my first fandom was The Wheel of Time, when my dad stuffed the first half of The Eye of the World into my hand on a car ride and told me read it. And then he told me to persevere (three times) when the first 50 pages turned out to be the dullest in liter ...more

This book definitely called to me the first time I saw it. So I couldn’t resist swiping it out from under a coworker to read it ASAP!

I had a hard time putting this down. I was definitely intrigued by it. I know I’m a hard core book fan, and even a hard core Blockhead (NKOTB fan for those that aren’t familiar with that term)…and I’d even say I’m a lightweight Harry Potter fan and Marvel fan…but I can honestly say, I’m nowhere near as dedicated as Liv is in this book. And that’s not a bad thing (

Swoon sent me an ARC for my birthday a few months ago, and I truly love the revisions that have taken place. If you're feeling all sorts of emotional after seeing The Force Awakens, this book is absolutely for you.

Devoured this MS on Swoon when it went up and I am so impatient to have a copy in my hands. So much cute.

Summer 2002 was significant to me for being the year Seether’s Disclaimer came out and waiting for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix to come out. I spent hours upon hours listening to that album and diving full in to the fandom life; Livejournal and Fiction Alley were lifelines to this homeschooled and very socially sheltered then-teen. I wrote fan fiction, reviewed it, and made friends through it, some of whom are still part of my life today. I know the joys and anguish of fandom firsth ...more

Here are some cool things about this book, which I really, really enjoyed:

1) I’ve never been to a Con, but thanks to Stone, I sure feel like I have! The characters described, the diversity in fandoms and events represented, and the vivid and exciting depiction of scenes that went down there – I have to believe she hit the nail on the head. And it was so much fun to read about.

As soon as I heard about this book, I knew it was perfect for me, and I was so right! ALL THE FEELS totally gave me "all the feels" (seriously, it has the most fitting title EVER!)! I loved absolutely every single second, and even though the Starveil fandom isn't real, I still felt like I was part of it, and I loved that!

If you're a big fan or fangirl over anything, I think you'll relate to ALL THE FEELS. You might not be able to relate to how involved Liv is in the fandom, but if you're a big

It's an okay read... was expecting more from it though. I didn't like the MC that much, nor the love interest at first. All this 'dearest' talk and him saying how delicious she always looked was getting on my nerves. It was kind of creepy to be honest.

But... the second part of the book made it all the more bearable once I warmed up a bit to the characters (yet not all the way through).

*le sigh*

I'll write a full review soon.

DNF at 25%. Honestly couldn't get into this...it felt like it was all over the place and the dialouge felt forced.

EEK!! I loved this book! Any fellow fangirl, nerd-girl needs to read this ASAP.

I admit things start out slow. From the summary - and a few other reviews - I was expecting laughs from page one. And it kind of was. Along with some thoughts of, "Is this chick serious?" For the latter, I reminded myself of how I was about certain characters in books and such and checked my reaction.

All the Feels is a stand-alone young adult contemporary romance by author Danika Stone.

The third person narration follows college student Liv and the fallout that ensues following the onscreen death of her hero, Captain Spartan, and her quest not to give up on her favourite movie franchise.

The premise sounds fun, set in the world of fandom, cosplay and Dragoncon - All the Feels promised to be entertaining and lighthearted.

A book about fans who don't agree with the ending of their fandom. Sure, I want to read this, but in my opinion, it gives such a wrong impression of fans and fandom.
First off, my is everyone speaking about fandom. I always talk about THE fandom, to specify a certain group e.g. the Harry Potter fandom, the Merlin fandom.
So Liv basically stops living after the main character of the Starveil franchise dies in the last movie. She starts the #SpartanSurvived movement by creating a teaser for a poss

There was a point where I noticed I hadn't been breathing for about 8 seconds, and my heart was beating really fast.
