those lonelygirl Tumblr fantasies about meeting your biggest celebrity crush This is the story of me and my friends and the time we met The RupertsKill The Boy Band is my spirit animal I may have mentioned it once or twice or a million times on this site that I am a huge Taylor Swift fan My room is papered with posters of her from her Fearless era when I first discovered her through Love Story to the 1989 era when she became a feminist, got a cute shoulder length bob and became the biggest person on the planet I have very strong opinions on Hiddleswift and which Tay Tay album is the best Speak Now, duh I have yet to see her in concert, but it s number one on my bucket list Often, when I was reading, I found myself nodding along with its insights on fandomYou ll find the biggest Ruperts critics in Strepurs Sometimes we sing like a tattoo they ll get, or we ll think a haircut make them look like a drug addict, or we ll make fun of the way they pose in photographs Just because we teased doesn t mean we didn t love Fandom is a complicated cultureBecause it s one hundred percent true Moldavsky has taken a typically inane part of popculture and made it complex and surprisingly thoughtful That s honestly not something I expected from a Misery and One Direction fanfiction pairing I expected horror movie stuff with everyone descending into paranoia and madness, and a Hands to Myself music video ending with the girls taken away in custody as their dream boys frown on.I got some of it I tore through the book in a night to get to the bottom of the spoilery mystery But I also got an intense insight into the world of celebrity worship and the dynamics of female friendshipAnyway, our friendship lived and breathed primarily in Twitter DMs and text messages That might sound strange, but talk to any Ruperts fangirl and she ll tell you just how important the Internet was in all our lives Without it we probably never would ve even heard of The RupertsThe gist is four fangirls obsessed with The Ruperts, loosely based on One Direction, book themselves a room in the hotel they re staying at and, through a hilarious series of coincidences, find themselves kidnapping one of them One of the girls want to let him go The other three, for reasons of their own, decide to keep him for a bit Those who ve read this correct me if I m wrong, but the main character s name is never specified She adopts different aliases throughout the book, which I think adds another layer of complexity to the mystery You never quite know if she s telling the truth view spoiler Because the whole kissing her favorite boy band member is the epitome of fanfiction fantasy hide spoilerPeople can do a lot of harm if pushed to the breaking point, and is fangirls lived at the breaking point If the boys were involved in a scandal, we were at a breaking point If they got haircuts, we were at a breaking pointIt s also surprisingly feminist The girls all have distinct personalities, their own lives and goals Isabel, the sharp tongued blogger Erin, the social butterfly Apple, the sweet overweight girl who happens to be loaded And of course, our elusive main character I once read an article that analyzed the feminism of boy bands since they re primarily marketed towards women and give tweens a safe environment to explore their sexuality Kill The Boy Band is like that Artificial on the outside, but unexpectedly deep on the insideI loved the Ruperts for who they were, sure, but I mostly loved them for how they made me feel Which was happy.The Ruperts made me happy The simplest thing to be in the world And the hardest Stalking boy bands was serious business Kill the Boy Band is unlike anything I ve read this year and the intro to this story is what really gripped meThe most important thing that you should know is that this is not fanfiction It isn t one of those lonelygirl Tumblr fantasies about meeting your biggest celebrity crush This is the story of me and my friends and the time we met The Ruperts You can believe it or not that s on you Just because you heard a different account of the events on Stalking boy bands was serious business Kill the Boy Band is unlike anything I ve read this year and the intro to this story is what really gripped meThe most important thing that you should know is that this is not fanfiction It isn t one of those lonelygirl Tumblr fantasies about meeting your biggest celebrity crush This is the story of me and my friends and the time we met The Ruperts You can believe it or not that s on you Just because you heard a different account of the events on the news doesn t mean that this one isn t true.I have to tell it exactly as it happened.I have to get the truth out.And I m truly sorry for what we have done After reading that, how could I possibly not pick it up In a way this book reminded me of the film Love Wrecked where the fan meets her favorite world famous rock star and they get stranded on an island.This review contains spoilers.But this storyline follows 4 fangirls of The Ruperts and they will do anything to meet them.It s definitely a unique story and it brought back those cringe worthy memories of my 12 year old self that I try with all my might to block out.It was, however, really funny remembering how obsessed you can get over someone you don t even know in real life, only with what the media presents of them.I will admit that I was hesitant going into this one because I read multiple reviews where they mentioned how Apple was portrayed that I didn t like and after reading the book I still don tImagine a big blubbering mess of tear streaked flesh and dry heaving Apple did the only thing Apple could think to do She ran at full fucking speed Apple did not stop Apple s overwhelming desire to hug touch hump Rupert P by any means necessary meant nothing was going to get in the way of her flesh touching his She did not stop until she football tackled Rupert P to the ground.Rupert P was out cold instantly This was actually kind of a best case scenario, under the circumstances, because a tackle from Apple could ve very well killed him I am upset with how Apple was portrayed, which is why I lowered my rating this review perfectly explained it But for the majority of the story, I enjoyed it and it got me out of my reading slump, which was fantastic because I had been picking up and putting down books for weeks now nothing has compared to The Raven Cycle.It was also an interesting read, though hard to explain because the mess these girls got themselves into was creepy and dark, yet somehow entertaining This book is considered a dark humor book, and it definitely managed to make me laugh, but at the same time feel truly scaredThe plan was always to blackmail Rupert P Everything that happened with Apple Rupert P ending up in our room that was all serendipity It expedited things I never dreamed the blackmail would go this far Or that it would work so well But why would you want to blackmail him To make a dent in the group Which would be the start of my plan I was afraid to ask, because I was afraid of what the answer would be But I needed to What is your plan To kill the boy band The whole situation with Rupert P actually being dead really shocked me, and I had my guesses for how he ended up that way I was right for once But when the girls walked into their hotel room and found it to be unnervingly quiet, I thought maybe Rupert had managed to escape not dieHow did this happen Erin said Who was in here last Isabel said We re going to need a polyethylene plastic bin and a few gallons of acid, Apple said We stared at her I watched Breaking Bad, I know how to get rid of a bodyI loved how the pop culture references in this book didn t feel forced And Goldy Moldavsky put it into perfect words the fangirl experience and nearing the end of itAnd all I saw was hate Because after a while, obsession without any payoff can breed it hatred The boys will inevitably disappoint you somehow You think a girl that they date isn t worthy of them You think their songs could be better, that their relevance is weak You begin to wonder why you still care so much, why you still fight their battles for them over Twitter while they themselves are sipping pi a coladas on some Mexican beach, and you realize that at some point your obsession is mostly perfunctory You ve sold your soul to it and now you open up Tumblr and scroll because it s hardwired in you to do it If you can just get onepiece of info, onepic, onescoop, it ll fill that empty feeling in you that you dug unbeknownst in the first place All in all, I m really glad that I picked this book up because it not only helped me get out of a reading slump, but I actually enjoyed the time I spent reading Kill the Boy Band.It was a quick and thought provoking readNote I m anAffiliate If you re interested in buying Kill the Boy Band, just click on the image below to go through my

know that up front Because everything I m about to tell you is going to seemwell, crazy Wow, okay So four girls go on a trip to see their favorite band, The Ruperts One of the girls gets her maid to get them into the same hotel and get a room for them Don t ask, read the book You have Erin, Isabel, Apple and Lydia now she keeps changing her name through out the book but I think I got the one little part where someone called her Lydia Don t quote me on that one I can t say nothing about fangirling because I was a nut over bands and actors all through childhood and, umstill am DON T JUDGE ME This book is the crazy kind of fangirling in the above picture I never did any of that, didn t like crowds Other people may have seen fangirls as crazy teenage girls obsessed with a fad, but they couldn t understand the small but important joy you can get from indulging in these fandoms They didn t understand that a new gif of Rupert K grinning at you could be the difference between a crap day and a beautiful one They didn t get the friendships that formed, the community of people who shared your same joy Maybe it obsession, but it was also happiness an escape from the suckiness of everyday life And when you find something that makes you happy and giddy and excited every day, us fangirls know the truth that everyone else seems to have forgotten You hold on to that joy tenaciously, for as long as you can Because it s rare to get excited about anything these days Ask your parents I have to agree with that statement I don t get excited very often and if something makes you happy then go for it How about when we open a box with a new book that we have wanted forever and we fangirl or boy around for a bit Same difference BUT, things in this book go a little bit off the rails Okay so a lot of the rails I wasn t sure this would be the type of book I would like but I did because it s just different and macabre Here we have The Ruperts, they are called that because there are 4 boys in the band with the first names of Rupert I m not going into all of that but it s funny as hell There are a lot of parts in the book that I got a great laugh out of and thenthese people got all evil and crazy up in here Geez, how can I say anything without giving out some really good spoilers I won t though Lets just say there is a murder in the book and YES, I know it s called Kill The Boy Band lol There is one part that I can understand, something happens to one of the girls and it slike a revenge thing Now there was no plan to kill anyone but you know how things happen and there you go What s evenmessed up is I had a plan of getting rid of the body that someone did try to accomplish but they were stupid and did it all wrong Anyway, if you want to read a book that is full of fangirls, crazy girls, murder, and a littlecraziness then this book is for you MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading List I used to be a fangirl.There is something weirdly exciting about loving someone powerful.Someone

that are connected through a boy band.These girls love these guys to death.I felt the excitement, the overwhelming emotions.Their lives are centered around these boys and it is crazy, but realistic as well.A lot of situations in this book made me think back of the time when I was a fan girl.The obsession, the undying love, watching every interview and reading every article there is about your object of obsession and undying love.What I really liked about this book was its portrait of the life of a teenage fan girl.The fandom, the daydreaming, the exhilaration over boy band songs.What I also liked was how accepting this book was over that fact.I rated this book 3 stars, so it passed the test for me.However, I had some minor problems that kept me from rating it higher.The dry sense of humor of the characters was amazing.I liked how funny the story was, but sometimes it lacked emotion and wasn t very believable.By a certain scene I expectedhumanity and it didn t fulfill those expectations.If you are looking for a crazy ride,this book is yours While this book was entertaining, dark and funny, I ll be lying if I said it was absolutely perfect and there is nothing wrong I got really uncomfortable reading about the sexual harassment which was NOT handled well , bad lgbtq rep, taking pictures of one of the girls who was a minor and threatening to show others, with or without her permission is still child pornography she didn t want anyone to see her naked and that was also NOT handled well and some other small things This book is While this book was entertaining, dark and funny, I ll be lying if I said it was absolutely perfect and there is nothing wrong I got really uncomfortable reading about the sexual harassment which was NOT handled well , bad lgbtq rep, taking pictures of one of the girls who was a minor and threatening to show others, with or without her permission is still child pornography she didn t want anyone to see her naked and that was also NOT handled well and some other small things This book is honestly weird and definitely crazy af It starts off with four girls who are huge fans of a boy band called The Ruperts and somehow manage to get a room in the same hotel the boys are staying in Somehow, miraculously, the ugliest and useless boy from the band Rupert P i think is tied to a chair in the girls room From there on the story just gets crazier as twists and turns are introduced like, EVERY CHAPTER WARNING S P O I L E R S FROM HERE ON THEY ARE MAJOR AND NOT MARKED BUT I NEED TO TALK ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT WAS IMPORTANT.These four character s are characters I couldn t help but sympathize and hate so fucking much Like each of them are so well developed and have so much crazy shit going on in their lives or horrible things that happened to them that you can t help but melt a little bit for But still, they did the most fucking PSYCHOPATHIC shit to an innocent band member that it makes your blood boil because of their horrible actions and the injustice The main character whose name is constantly changing throughout the book seemed like a character who could be safe to trust trying to do what s right , but as the story goes on she becomes increasingly unreliable because of how she acts and the things she reveals.The other three character s were gross and disgusting but still human beings who went through things no one should have to go through I hated them because of how they treated Rupert P They refused to let him go, sexually harassed him, threatened to expose his sexuality when he didn t want anyone knowing, ruined his career, maybe murdered him and just treated the guy so horrible He was vulnerable to them and thinking about it makes me SO uncomfortable SEXUAL HARASSMENT If four guys tied up a girl, sat on her lap, got naked in front of her, touched her doesn t matter where the place when she didn t want it, people would be fucking screaming SEXUAL HARASSMENT So when four girls do this to a guy, suddenly it s not sexual harassment In this case, Apple was the one sitting on Rupert P s lap, touching him, taking her shirt off and taking pictures with him while he s tied up and the other girls are just watching this, letting this happen and not fucking stopping it The book mentions NOTHING about this being harassment towards Rupert P AND I WANTED TO SCREAM SEXUALITY Also, another thing that pissed me the fuck off is Apple s reaction and total disregard of Rupert P s sexuality He s gay and when Apple found out she was totally oblivious even though the other girl s mentioned it to her, I think she mentioned something about him kissing other girls and how it made her jealous I m not sure But anyways, she fucking brushed off the fact he s gay and continued imagining he was straight and THAT S GROSS AND HOMOPHOBIC Not only that but of course it s the gay guy who gets murdered.CHILD PORNOGRAPHY Also, Erin i think that s her name was waiting naked in the band members room where one of the boys came in and had sex with her Also atm in the book she s 15 so this was a while ago, at a time where she was younger and I m not sure how old the boys are, so I really can t be sure if this was statutory rape However, when she talks about how one of the Rupert s sent her nudes while she pleaded, cried and was terrified of, all she gets is a pat on the back and oh poor you That s not a way to handle this, for a fact Also, nobody mentioned it s child pornography to take pictures of a minor naked and send them to people Overall, I had some huge issues with this book but it was still an intriguing and thrilling read with twists and turns every chapter A LOT of things in this book made me uncomfortable but I d be lying if I said I didn t enjoy it 3.5 stars rounded down, even though I originally rated it four stars Find all of my reviews at S MY 100TH REVIEW OF THE YEAR I have totally glossed over every single milestone number before this point, so I m going to celebrate the

end up being the sleeper of the year for you as well God this thing was a delight Even this happeningThe obvious way to go would ve been the Weekend at Bernie s route It s this movie where two guys pretend that this dead guy, Bernie, is still alive by putting him in sunglasses and walking him around with them and stuffOuch I m fucking old Weekend at Bernie s just got millennialsplained to me But it didn t lessen my enjoyment I also found out how those screaming banshees are able to maintain their position right in front of the stage for hours on endWatch out NKOTB The next time I haul my

was like reading a book written by 14 year old to 17 year old, me Because 14 17 year old me was a hardcore One Direction fan, just like these girls were hardcore Ruperts fans Like, there s this whole

us fangirls know a truth that everyone else seems to have forgotten you hold on to that joy tenaciously, for as long as you canSo, story time So let s just say once upon a time I was a 14 year old girl who randomly started watching the British X Factor online live at weird times of the day because that s clearly a normal thing 14 year old girls used to do One Direction was formed that season, and I started to like them Then, I get obsessed Then, I get my sister obsessed Then, we went to signings One Two Three Then, suddenly we re camping out 4 days in advance for a Today Show performance to see them and we meet two girls who become our best friends.Flash forward a couple years We ve expanded our friend group to 8 girls who are willing to do anything and everything to meet One Direction Like, we poured out serious money for this I m talking staying at their hotels always 250 a night and flying to all their US shows Miami, Chicago, LA, etc A lot of the group either ran updates accounts, who knew info on the boys 24 7, or could chip in extra It was probably the craziest, funniest, best, and most dangerous times of my life way too many near death experiences And all of this while I was under 18, and my sister two years younger And we somehow thought it was all worth it every time we met them A lot of planning, lying, and selling things on ebay went into this and somehow I m almost 20 and my mom still has no idea about us doing all this I M HORRIBLE I KNOW Don t even get me started on the car chasing because thinking about the speeding tickets and car repairs gives me a headache This book gives you the insider look into that world, with lots of humor andcraziness thrown in the mix Even if this book wasn t my life, I d still love it anyway I loved the way it showed a diverse group of girls banning together to meet the Ruperts just like my friend group and their complicated friendships Everything was just so fun in this one I loved it and want to buy a million copies and hand them out to every fangirl out there Highly recommend it to anyone though, just even to try it out So excited to readfrom Goldy What an insane ride I m still reelingErin,

because THAT WAS SO MUCH FUN.How far would you go to approach celebrities you admire worship can t stop thinking about love Holy c What an adventure.I don t know if I should laugh, roll my eyes or give this book the award of the most comedic, addictive story I ve read this year.Let s rewind I should definitely laugh at all the craziness and ridiculousness in this book, roll my eyes at all the Ruperts fans especially the four heroines and I should definitely award this book with something, because THAT WAS SO MUCH FUN.How far would you go to approach celebrities you admire worship can t stop thinking about love with all your fangirl heart Would you kidnap them One day with a star, would you say no It really wasn t supposed to go like this for the Four Fangirls I m going to refer to them this way, it s easier All they wanted was to attend the Ruperts new show And maybe catch a glimpse of them by booking a room at their hotel Not kidnap the ugliest, less talented, most forgettable of the Ruperts It sounds a bit ridiculous, doesn t it But then again, isn t that the point Far fetched sounding stories are not always bad A story like this one, with many WTF worthy scenes is my idea of spending a fun afternoon.A many readers find this book offensive, especially to fangirls all over the world I don t consider myself as being a fangirl, though I know I AM one when it comes to Damen Laurent and Alec Magnus But I can t bring myself to fangirl over real life celebrities I used to be super fan of Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez when I was 13, but that was a long time ago and, quite frankly, I do agree with what Civil War Bartender said It was indeed just a phase for me Maybe this is why I didn t find this offensive The author clearly did not mean to offend anyone, although some characters are definitely jackasses when it comes to the subject of being a fan or having them.But I do think that fangirls and fanboys are needed in this world Without them, concerts would be rather boring On that note, the Four Fangirls are pretty cray cray and I m kind of scared for their next victim Haha Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin
