"This is an insider’s look into the life of a fangirl. ... Liv’s experiences with fandom will resonate with many teens, but it is her struggles to understand her goals for the future, her feelings for Xander, and even the drudgery of college that will compel teens to stick with this story." ―School Library Journal
"The book is a dream. I loved absolutely everything about it. ... From the chapter headers to every mention of nerd culture, All the Feels is a blast for anyone who’s ever been completely consumed by a fandom. If you’ve ever been a geek who’s felt out of place, this is the book for you!" ―Seeking Book Boyfriends
“I fell in love with this story! Well written, funny, with a side of romance. Liv and Xander are great. Real friends with the ups and downs all friends have. I was laughing and cringing as I read. This book definitely captures the feel of all consuming fandom can be, but there's a real heart to its message. Totally loved it!” ―Mara M., Swoon Reader
“A great read about fandom and friendship.” ―Kate Pearson, Swoon Reader

All the Feels is about Liv, a college freshman and fangirl, who is navigating adulthood while she is still living with her mother. When her favourite character, Captain Matt Spartan, is killed off at the end of the last movie Liv just can't deal with it. Determined for it not to be the end, she launches #SpartanSurvived with her (handsome) best friend Xander. However, as Liv is dealing with the fact that the tag is beginning to gain momentum she also has to deal with her mother who thinks that Liv needs to drop this "fangirl" ways of hers and focus on her education. Balancing college classes, her mother's complaints, and her feelings for her best friend is becoming a lot harder to do.
“Alright. I'm over on the dark side. You'd better have the cookies I've been promised.”
All the Feels is divided into two parts - life before the convention and life during the convention. Which is both intriguing and an amazing aspect to read about. Besides that the characters are so entertaining and delightful to read.
Liv is such a relatable and likeable character. She is a freshman in college unsure with what she wants to do with her life - she believes what she wants is not possible. Rather than spending time studying for her classes, Liv is focused (and occupied) in fingerling especially after her favourite character is killed off. She shows more of herself and who she really is online then in any social situation.
Don't even get me started on Xander, Liv's best friend that acts like everyday is cosplay! Dressing like Lord Byron, carrying around a pocket watch, and seeming to understand Liv makes Xander even more irresistible. When he invites Liv to go with him to DragonCon, and her #SpartanSurvived makes new waves, she decides to go along and let go.
All the Feels is definitely a novel that will give you the feels. Check it out and order it today!

It’s so hard to put into words how All The Feels made me feel. It made me deliriously happy, the kind of happy I used to get reading books years ago, where my tummy feels all tingly, and you just know there’s two characters with that special connection and when they eventually kiss it’s just the best thing ever. I got that feeling reading this book, because Xander and Liv and just the BEST. I loved how Xander just went along with Liv’s crazy plan to bring Spartan back, no questions asked, because that’s just what kind of friend he was, and alternatively I loved that Liv couldn’t care less how Xander dressed or acted, which was amazing. I legitimately loved him, from his crazy clothes, to his weird British accent, to his mannerisms, not to mention his apparently gorgeous half-naked chest. I was SWOONING all over the place. I finished the book and let out the happiest of sighs.
I literally loved everything about this book. Liv’s love for fandom, for Starveil, DragonCon (which makes me want to go to a con SO FREAKING BAD), Xander, Xander, Xander, Xander, Xander, their cute text convos, the whole #SaveSpartan campaign, just the whole lot of it. It was everything I love wrapped up in a book, but the greatest ever writing in the history of writing. Danika Stone is AMAZING. She just gets fandom, she gets what it’s like to fall in love as a teenager, she just gets it all. I need more, though. More from Danika or more from Liv and Xander, because oh man, I just loved them. This was absolutely the perfect read for me, it was everything I love about the YA genre, and as much as I love more serious YA books, I also love the light-hearted ones I can swoon over and smile at and get so much joy from.
All The Feels will literally make you feel all the freaking feels. You’ll love Liv’s determination to bring Spartan back, no matter what; you’ll love Xander’s quirkiness, because boy is he quirky, but he pulls it off the way Ted pulls off red cowboy boots (and I’m being genuine!!! Ted Mosby pulled off those cowboy boots), the writing will have you flying through the book at a rate of knots, I finished it in a few hours, and it was the best few hours I have ever spent. There was a letter at the beginning of this book from Holly West, the editor, and she encapsulates everything I felt about this book into that letter, she was telling the truth ABOUT IT ALL. And I loved every page, and every single fandom quote at the beginning of each chapter (but mostly the Castiel quote from Supernatural that never fails to make me LOL). Buy this book. Read this book. FANGIRL OVER THIS BOOK.
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 fan of everything, you'll definitely understand how much Starveil means to her. It made me think back to how obsessed I was with a few of my favourite fandoms, and luckily my favourites have always seemed to survive, but I could totally relate to how passionate Liv felt about Spartan dying, and I loved that she did something about it!
Now onto Liv herself! I absolutely LOVED her! I could relate to her late night fandom binges, and her reluctance to let the fandom go. I also loved her friendship with Xander, and I thought that Xander himself was fantastic! He was such a wonderful and unique character, and I loved how supportive he was to Liv. I loved their friendship, but I really, really loved seeing how their friendship progressed throughout the story, and I shipped them so, so so much!
Overall, I thought that ALL THE FEELS was fantastic! It was fun, hilarious, and as a self-professed fangirl, it was extremely easy for me to relate to! Just thinking about this book has me grinning like a fool, and if you like romantic comedies with some fandom nerdiness thrown in then I think this is the perfect book for you, too!
