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 pre-order it today!

College freshman Liv is more than just a fangirl: The Starveil movies are her life… So, when her favorite character, Captain Matt Spartan, is killed off at the end of the last movie, Liv Just. Can’t. Deal.
Tired of sitting in her room sobbing, Liv decides to launch an online campaign to bring her beloved hero back to life. With the help of her best friend, Xander, actor and steampunk cosplayer extraordinaire, she creates #SpartanSurvived, a campaign to ignite the fandom. But as her online life succeeds beyond her wildest dreams, Liv is forced to balance that with the pressures of school, her mother’s disapproval, and her (mostly nonexistent and entirely traumatic) romantic life. A trip to DragonCon with Xander might be exactly what she needs to figure out what she really wants.
