Head Over Heels (Geek Girl, Book 5) - Holly Smale

A new book in the series, and one that I really liked again! Mostly because we can finally see some minor growth in Harriet. Also because of what happened at the end which was long overdue (I knew from the start of the book what would happen).

Harriet is back, and she is (for most) her old obnoxious, how-the-hell-did-you-survive-16/17-years-on-earth. I mean, wow, I know some people aren't really great at stuff like social, but Harriet tops the cake. Why did I rate the book high? Well, because it is fun seeing Harriet try to survive in this world, and also trainwrecks.
I just couldn't get it that she didn't see that organizing EVERYONE of her friends life was controlling, annoying, or not a good thing. Then again, I wish that the whole India stuff was handled better. Now it just felt weird and silly. Yes, I know she was hurt, but why didn't she just talk about it with Harriet? Harriet is an idiot, but she can understand stuff if you explain it. Maybe take her best friend Nat and do it together. Running away, ignoring her, then being a bitch, is just bad.

Now I don't want to talk about the social awkwardness any more. I want to talk about all the good things, and I will just put them in a list type, since I am not feeling all to well, but still want to tell people why I liked this book.
-Wilbur and all that Harriet did for him. Which was just amazing, wonderful, and cute. Go Harriet!
-The dad. He is always my favourite character, but he really shines in this one.
-The grandma. Oh my, she might seem a bit weak and old, but actually she is still young and springy. I just laughed so hard when she surprised Harriet a few times. And she also helped her out.
-The facts. Yes, while they did get a bit annoying to be featured EVERYWHERE, and getting in the story, I still loved reading them. Not that I will remember them, some people are walking random facts machines, but I tend to just forget them if I don't use them. :D
-The modelling!
-Rin! Rin is here and I was just so happy to see her again.
-The travelling.
-The cover.
-The ending. Ahhh, *swoons*.
-Harriet actually doing some effort to look normal.
-Harriet helping out her dad in a great, fantastic, sweet way.
-Harriet sister was just adorable, and it was fun to see that she came with Harriet a few times.

As you can see, a lot of good that really kicked away the not so good. :) I just flew through this book and I can't wait for the special that is coming out soon.

Level Up: A Geek Romance Rom Com by Cathy Yardley Free!!!
Level Up: A Geek Romance Rom Com - Cathy Yardley

Geeky introvert Tessa Rodriguez will do whatever it takes to get promoted to video game engineer– including create a fandom-based video game in just three weeks. The only problem is, she can't do it alone. Now, she needs to strong-arm, cajole, and otherwise socialize with her video game coworkers, especially her roommate, Adam, who’s always been strictly business with her. The more they work together, though, the closer they get…

Adam London has always thought of his roomie Tessa as “one of the guys” until he agreed to help her with this crazy project. Now, he’s thinking of her all the time… and certainly as something more than just a roommate! But his last girlfriend broke up with him to follow her ambitions, and he knows that Tessa is obsessed with getting ahead in the video game world.

Going from friends to something more is one hell of a challenge. Can Tessa and Adam level up their relationship to love?

Hell's Geek (Welcome To Hell Book 5)
Hell's Geek (Welcome To Hell Book 5) - Eve Langlais wow what a ride, loved the differences in the characters, the twists and turns in the story and the unexpected developments happening throughout the book. Had great fight scenes, funny scenes and many more delights, so I'm really looking forward to the next one and how it plays out.

Falling Into You (Geek to Chic Book 1) - Nikki Brinks

All kinds of cute, and easy to read, but oy to the vey, the typos! So so so many!

 

And despite the series title, the H wasn't narly geeky enough, IMO, to really be called geeky...I mean he likes star wars and computers, but I was hoping for more...More fandoms, maybe a couple cons, and some gaming...maybe even if they'd just been mentioned in passing I'd have been okay, but as he is, the hero, IMO is only kinda sorta a geek.

 

Still, a quick fun read, so Altogether 3.5 stars.

Model Misfit (Geek Girl #2) - Holly Smale This was pretty much as enjoyable as Geek Girl, the first book was - lots of humour but also quite a bit of depth & realism to it (certainly more than one might expect from a funny teen-girl-turns-model book).

I honestly didn't expect to enjoy these books as much as I have - contemporary YA doesn't tend to be my thing, and all I know of modelling comes from seeing bits and pieces of 's Next Top Model. But enjoy them I have, and largely thanks to Harriet; there's something about her character and her voice that makes me smile.
