Geek + runway = a runaway UK hit! Geek Girl is the first book in a hilarious, internationally bestselling series that's perfect for fans of Louise Rennison and The Princess Diaries.

Harriet Manners is a geek. She always has been, and she thought she always would be—but when she's discovered by a modeling agent, she leaps at the chance to reinvent herself. There's only one problem: Harriet is the definition of awkward. Can she transform from geek to chic?

So....... Usually I wouldn't pick up a book like this. It seems like a little girl book. But I didn't have anything else to read so I decided to give it a try. It really was a good book. It wasn't like, OMG THIS BOOK WAS SO AMAZING ADSFUJDEG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But it was cute and funny. It was a good book that lifted my mood. It's a cute read for your time in between books. It is also a good book for girls. The main character, Harriet, is bullied because of how smart she is. She isn't some amazingly good-looking girl, and she messes a lot of things up. But Harriet also learns how to fix everything. She doesn't have a dramatic change in personality, but she learns to be who she is. I liked that about this book. You shouldn't change who you are for someone else.


  1. Great review, Reagan! I'm glad you liked this one!

  2. Thanks so much for this review Paola! Becca also had awesome things to say about this book and it's making me really want to read it! I wonder if there's an audiobook...

  3. Awesome review, Valerie! I really need to make myself read more contemp. I usually end up liking them, but making myself start them is hard for some reason! This sounds really good though!

  4. I absolutely LOVED Geek Girl! The second one was even better and even more hilarious - I urgently need the 3rd book! Great review! :)

  5. That is exactly where I am now -- I got an ARC, so this book has been on my radar, but others had more pull. I think I will move it up the tbr chain!

  6. I plan on reading the rest, as soon as I can get my hands on it! Thanks for reading!
