Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Here's a bit from Harper Collins site:  “My name is Harriet Manners, and I am a geek.”

Harriet Manners knows that a cat has 32 muscles in each ear, a “jiffy” lasts 1/100th of a second, and the average person laughs 15 times per day. She knows that bats always turn left when exiting a cave and that peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.

But she doesn’t know why nobody at school seems to like her.

So when Harriet is spotted by a top model agent, she grabs the chance to reinvent herself. Even if it means stealing her best friend's dream, incurring the wrath of her arch enemy Alexa, and repeatedly humiliating herself in front of impossibly handsome model Nick. Even if it means lying to the people she loves.

Veering from one couture disaster to the next with the help of her overly enthusiastic father and her uber-geeky stalker, Toby, Harriet begins to realise that the world of fashion doesn't seem to like her any more than the real world did.

My Take:

Geek Girl was a great read!  Harriet Manners is quirky, fun and the kind of girl you can relate to.  She knows all these interesting facts that she can’t help but share.  I really loved the characters in this book.  Some of them aren’t always who you think they’re going to be and I found that so refreshing.  I’m giving Geek Girl 4 air kisses, so as not to muss the makeup!  ;)


  1. While this doesn't inherently sound like my cup-o-tea, I tend to enjoy the books you love and might have to give it a try.

    Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. I love finding new books and word of mouth is the best way.


  2. Great review! Thanks for bringing this one to my attention. :)


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are regarding my posts! ~Thanks
