Five top books about inspiring writers

At the BN Teen blog, Jenny Kawecki tagged five top novels about inspiring writers, including:
Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell

Cath has always shared her life with her twin sister, Wren, who understands her weird quirks and her obsession with Simon Snow and her dedication to writing fanfics. So when Wren refuses to room with Cath their freshman year of college, Cath is left to navigate a completely new environment without her backup. Add in a cute boy who doesn’t read, a writing buddy who’s totally self-absorbed, and a professor who doesn’t think fan fiction is real writing, and Cath starts wishing she could just crawl into a Simon and Baz story and be done with it. For all the moments when you’re not sure you can go on writing, Fangirl is the book you need.
