Trixie Watson has two very important goals for senior year: to finally save enough to buy the set of Doctor Who figurines at the local comic books store, and to place third in her class and knock Ben West--and his horrendous new mustache that he spent all summer growing--down to number four.Trixie will do anything to get her name ranked over Ben's, including give up sleep and comic books--well, maybe not comic books--but definitely sleep. After all, the war of Watson v. West is as vicious as the Doctor v. Daleks and Browncoats v. Alliance combined, and it goes all the way back to the infamous monkey bars incident in the first grade. Over a decade later, it's time to declare a champion once and for all.The war is Trixie's for the winning, until her best friend starts dating Ben's best friend and the two are unceremoniously dumped together and told to play nice. Finding common ground is odious and tooth-pullingly-painful, but Trixie and Ben's cautious truce slowly transforms into a fandom-based tentative friendship. When Trixie's best friend gets expelled for cheating and Trixie cries foul play, however, they have to choose who to believe and which side they're on--and they might not pick the same side.

Another #ARCAugust read down. I won an ARC copy from Lily Anderson (thanks!). The Only Thing Worse Than Me Is You is a teenage nerd retelling of Much Ado About Nothing. But if you’re looking for the opinion of a Shakespearian fangirl, this is the wrong review. I’ve never read Much Ado and hate Romeo...

4.0 The Only Thing Worse Than Me is You Book Review
I didn't expect to love this one as much as I did. I related so much to Trixie and her friends. Its nice to read about characters that are every bit as nerdy as I am. Their constant references to Supernatural, The Walking Dead and Marvel made me grin every time. Trixie is a student at Mess Hall. ...

5.0 ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ for YA in a school for gifted kids. A quick-fire delight.
Thanks to Net Galley and to St. Martin’s Griffin for providing me a free ARC copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review. When I read this book was a modern take of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing for young adults I could not resist. It’s one of my favourite Shakespeare’s comedies and ...
