#6Degrees: Fangirl to... (Guest post by Debbie from Snuggling on the Sofa)

The #6Degrees meme continues today! Remember this month's book is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Debbie, who blogs at Snuggling on the Sofa, has been one of my favourite bloggers, best friends, and partner in maintaining the spreadsheet of YA and MG releases (okay, partner is REALLY being generous to me here - she does 98% of the work!!) for the past few years. I'm kinda stunned that I don't think I've had her posting on here before, but this was WELL worth the wait! 

Fangirl is one of my most favourite books. I've reread it multiple times, and have several different editions of it. 

Another book I have several editions of is Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan. This book is so beautiful. I'm excited for anything he writes, including his book You Know Me Well which is out later this year written with Nina LaCour

Nina LaCour is the author of another book I adore, Everything Leads to You. I'm looking forward to meeting her at YALC later this year when she visits from the US.

YALC is always an amazing occasion to meet other book lovers, publicists and authors. I'm met Alice Oseman at the very first YALC and I'm hoping I'll get to see her there again this year. I recently read her book Radio Silence and would highly recommend it for its really amazing friendship. 

Books featuring strong friendships is something I tend to look for, and This Song Is (Not) For You by Laura Nowlin is everything I wanted in exploring friendships and relationships. 

I have to Jim to thank for lending me this one, as he does so many other books! A Jim-recommended book I have on my TBR is Leap of Faith by Candy Harper. I really liked the others in the series and Jim assures me this one is just as good.

Check out Debbie's blog and follow her on Twitter where she's @snugglingonsofa.

Have you done a #6Degrees post this month? Remember to link it up to my post from March 5th

And for people who want to play ahead, April's book will be one that ties in to an upcoming film release and is a perfect pick for the #2016ClassicsChallenge - so lots of ways to go from there! (Which is lucky, as I haven't actually read this one myself.) We're going with The Jungle Book - where will Rudyard Kipling take you?
