Geek Girl is a light, fun and quick read.
I had fun reading this book. It was actually laugh out loud funny. Harriet’s dad? Wow. Funny and still acts like a child. I kind of liked the way he was so childish but at the same time he was Harriet’s rock and was able to act mature when she needed him. Toby was Harriet’s ‘stalker’, otherwise known as the boy who was also just as intelligent as Harriet and has been following her around for years. He was incredibly weird but also very harmless. And my goodness he was hilarious.
At first glance I thought this book was a pretty big book, considering it looked thick. But then as I was reading it I realised it wasn’t at all. It was very easy to read and I ended up finishing it in one night. But I did feel like I wanted more time to happen in the book, this book spans over a few days and for some reason I felt like I wanted it to happen over a longer period of time. Just because everything was happening so fast. She gets scouted, she’s booked a job, she’s flying out to Moscow, she’s doing a fashion show, she’s back home and trying make amends to all the people she lied to.
The there’s Nick. Harriet meets and speaks to Nick only a few times but they fall for each other in that amount of time and I feel like they hardly know each other. But then again Geek Girl is incredibly light and funny so the romance, which is hardly noticeable at all since this book is not based on the romance; it’s not unbelievable. It’s rather cute and sweet.
Geek Girl feels like it is geared more towards younger readers, it was a very light read and as fun as it was I just couldn’t come to really fall in love with it. It was too light for my tastes.
