    1. This is exactly what I needed after reading Second Chance Summer and Some Girls Are- a fun, hilarious coming off age story. I felt like I laughed from start to finish. Harriet’s story could be compared to the Ugly Duckling’s except when Harriet transforms, she still ends up being herself and I thought that was great. She’s a certified geek from start to end and I loved that about the story. Although Harriet transforms, it’s mostly inner transformation. In the end, she earns self-confiden [...]

    2. Love this! A nerd girl turn to be the model. Why this not happen to me? *Jeeez I'm a jealous thing* The writing style is really hilarious, it made me lol and have smile shone on my face, I love it! My new fave comedy read this year and I want more!

    3. Ah. This book. I really had to mull over my feelings before writing a review because it wasn’t all horrible – there were some funny moments and some really heart-warming moments and I have to say that I thought it was written very well. But me and this book did not gel one iota.First of all, Harriet. Harriet is our main character and self proclaimed ‘geek girl’. Harriet is meant to be fifteen, but she is more naïve then my thirteen year old sister. This was my first gripe. Harriet’s e [...]

    4. See more reviews at YA Midnight ReadsThank you HarperCollins Australia for sending me this copy. No compensation was given or taken to alter this review. geekgi:k/informalnounnoun: geek; plural noun: geeks1. an unfashionable or socially inept person.Geek Girl is another one of those reads that have a bucket full of flaws, but is so entertaining and laid back that some of them just disappear. And that's totally cool every now and again. An imperfectly perfect novel.Harriet Manners is a geek; even [...]

    5. Ένα βιβλίο που μου άρεσε ανέλπιστα πολύ, καθώς με έκανε κ πέρασα πολύ καλά.Είναι από τα βιβλία αυτά, που τα αποκαλώ «ζουζουνοβιβλία». Και αυτό διότι τα πάντα είναι αξιολάτρευτα, η ηρωίδα είναι αξιολάτρευτα αδέξια, κάθε τι είναι χαριτωμένο επάνω της. Οι υπόλοιποι ήρωες είναι [...]

    6. 5 Words: Hilarious, model, school, bullies, geeky.I'd heard a lot about Geek Girl before I picked it up. I'd even bought it months beforehand. Even my none-bookish sister had read it and was raving about it and asking when I was getting the next book. I'd even started it, reading the first 15 chapters before my sister decided she'd like it better.So I don't know why it took the book being picked as the Fashionista Book Club read for me to read it. Because I'd enjoyed the start, and I'd heard so [...]

    7. Enjoyed this book. I can't believe how mean Alexa is such a bully, I don't like them!! I'm glad Harriet stands up for her self in the end. I can relate a little to Harriet, well when I was younger I always wished I could be someone else and that events and decisions would help that. But it's not true, we are who we are. I loved when Harriet and Nick did the interview together and how she spoke from the heart. And I loved how it ended

    8. 3.75 stars----------------------------------------------this review is originally posted on The Bookish Girl----------------------------------------------You can buy the book from Bookdepository----------------------------------------------A geek + a super model = Harriet MannersThe above equation is basically the synopsis of this book (*wink*) but I'll give you another version of it just in case you don't like Maths.Harriet Manners is a full-time geek, which means she's the opposite of popular. [...]

    9. Have you guys read this book yet? Oh man, it’s SO FUN! Let’s chat about it, shall we?“You need to stop caring what people who don’t matter think of you. Be who you are and let everybody else be who they are. Differences are a good thing.”Okay, let’s face it… most of us are geeks, right? Or at least have some geekish tendencies. I sure do. And I believe that’s why I loved this book so much. Harriet is the type of MC you can’t help but love. She’s such a stereotypical geek, but [...]

    10. Visit Stay Bookish for more book reviews!Fun is the one perfect word I can think of that sums up Geek Girl. I picked it up on a pretty dull day and it easily put me in a happy mood as I laughed because of the hilarious MC and the delightful events that lead to her from being unpopular geek to becoming a model for a top UK fashion powerhouse as well as the events that occur after. Seriously, it was just such a fun book! Why? Let me list the reasons.1. True to the title, Harriet Manners is a geek. [...]

    11. I'm going to a Geek Girl party this weekend, in which I'll be surrounded by many of my fellow UK book blogging friends, participating in a 'geek quiz', playing ping pong, and nibbling on snacks. As I don't particularly enjoy the slightly awkward feeling of attending a book event without having read the book (it feels a bit fraudulent), I decided to pick up Geek Girl. And I'm rather glad I did.Geek Girl is a fun, quirky roller-coaster I didn't see coming. A super quick read, it's the story of 15- [...]

    12. Love. So much love.What worked: Officially one of my new favourite series. Seriously. It’s up there with Delirium, Chronicles of Narnia, Kate Daniels and Georgia Nicholson! When I first saw Geek Girl, I was expecting something fluffy and light that I could absorb into my brain. Did I get that? Yes. But what else did I get from it? I got my geek on, I learned new facts that I can throw at my friends, I found a kindred spirit. Holly Smale, can we be best friends?I can barely write a coherent rev [...]

    13. 3e read: 10 - Mei 2016Leesclub met nichtje Rachel (11)1e read: 13 - 19 september 2013Geek girl begon bijzonder hilarisch, maar later veranderde hilarisch in grappig. Het verhaal is niet bijzonder origineel en ook zeker niet overal even realistisch, maar de toon van het boek is lekker luchtig. De vader van Harriet vind ik een frustrerend karakter, maar Annabel, Nat en Toby vind ik wel leuk. Toby is waarschijnlijk een van de minst realistische bijrollen, en er wordt ook niet toegelicht hoe hij aan [...]

    14. Holly Smale's début novel is a story about a geeky girl who accidentally falls into the modelling business after being scouted at a clothes show. Normally, I'm not really a fan of the 'geek girl fixes her hair up and wears contacts and OMG she's so pretty without her glasses/geeky jumpers/bushy hair' trope, though I have enjoyed similar material in the past. Meg Cabot's The Princess Diaries are nice and fluffy, and Hermione's transformation to belle of the Yule Ball in Harry Potter and the Gobl [...]

    15. My ratings: 4.5 out of 5 starsBefore I go nose diving into my review, I have a confession to make. I’m a geek. Let’s make a big massive GEEK. In fact I’m pretty sure I’m Harriett Manners. Or perhaps Harriett is modelled after every Geek girl out there. Harriett was so real to me. It felt like story was being told. Well, I’m not exactly model material but I’d like to think I am.Harriett is your average geek girl next door, complete with a fashion crazy best friend and a geeky stalker. [...]

    16. Como este maldito ordenador me ha borrado todo lo que he escrito, os quedáis con lo que pueda hacer en 10 minutos Y mira que mi reseña estaba bienEl libro mo era lo suficientemente interesante como para que me lo acabara, lo único bueno que teníaera que me aportó más datos curiosos a mi lista. Y era bastante gracioso en los 5 capí tulos que leí, sus monólogos internos eran mejor que cualquier comedia que puedas ver.La cosa es que no me atrajo como otros libros lo hayan hecho anteriormen [...]

    17. I don't remember laughing this hard while reading a book. That was so funny and humours. The characters are SO cute and loveable. Everything was witty and CUTE!for sure recommend this to everyone who wants to have a fast, witty, and funny read. :)

    18. Read: January 2018Rating: 3.5/5 starsGeek Girl was on a long list of books my teenage daughter has recommended that I read, and I can see why she likes it. Harriet is a quirky, likeable protagonist and the plot is entertaining and easy to follow. I especially like the fact that Harriet has a loving and healthy relationship with her dad and step-mother. The only reason this was not a four star read was that the plot became more and more unrealistic towards the end of the novel; there's no way (vi [...]

    19. Meet Harriet Manners -- our resident 15 y/o geek girl."I'm not a big fan of the colour red, even if it is the longest wavelength of light discernible by the human eye."Well, my fave color is red, and I didn't know that.Let me tell you, I feel pretty giddy whenever I start a book. I believe that no book can be so bad that it doesn't contain even a single new knowledge or information.Fortunately, this book is full of them. I'm seriously learning lots of actual trivias while reading this YA goodie [...]

    20. This was a fun, light read that was just perfect for me since I had just finished A Court of Thorns and Roses. It only took a few hours to read and was well written. The only part I didn't like was how childish Harriet's dad acts. I mean he acts like he's 13 years old on a good day. Other then that, it was good and shows the reader that what really counts Ina person is what is on the inside, not the outside. I will be reading the next few books of this series because 1) I want to see what happen [...]

    21. I'd recommend this book maybe for 13-15 year olds?It's a cutesy, light, slightly annoying teenage book, I literally only paid 50p for it, but I think I'm more put out by the amount of time I spent reading it (which was only a few hours but still)I gave it 3 stars because it wasn't wasn't bad book, it's just not my kind of read, personally I wanted to give it 1 star, but if I was a teenager I'd have loved it, sooo3 stars!

    22. Geek Girl is about a pretty normal girl, a bit quirky, that gets spotted at a school trip.It was an okay read but mostly predictable. I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. I regret buying the whole series right awayThe character of Toby was annoying and not really needed for the story. I love fun facts and that was probably the thing I liked the most about this book.

    23. DNF op 32%. Dit is het eerste boek dit jaar dat op mijn dnf lijst komt. Ik kan er maar niet doorheen komen En ik ben stiekem al trots op mezelf dat ik tot de 32% ben gekomen. Dit is mijn eerste luisterboek en daar kan het misschien ook wel een heel klein beetje liggen. Haar beste vriendin Nat, klinkt in mijn oren als Ned en dus was ik telkens in de war. (Ook duurt het luisteren van een luisterboek mij te lang bijna 7 uur om zo'n boek te luisteren? Dat kan toch veel sneller?)Ik erger me vooral he [...]

    24. This review can also be found on my blog: A Match Made in HeavenThis was a typical coming-of-age story. Very predictable. Harriet is picked on in school and when she is offered a modelling job, she accepts hoping it will change her life for the better. But she soon realizes that there are bullies wherever you go, and the trick is to ignore them, be yourself, and remember what is really important. This was very brief. I read it in two sittings, and not much really happened. Her modeling career co [...]

    25. Woo hoo! First book read in 2015!Geek Girl was a surprisingly quick and entertaining read. Our heroine Harriet was both lovable and sweet and so geeky and adorable. Harriet has always lived in the periphery - she often feels like a "polar bear in the rain forest," which may or may not be a good thing. Harriet often finds herself in all sorts of wacky situations and her primary coping mechanism is to dive under a table and hide. While on a field trip to Birmingham, Harriet is discovered by a larg [...]

    26. Re-reading in preparations for Forever Geek! This is such a great debut to a series, I love seeing the origins of these characters. The Russian modelling adventure was one I'd forgotten about, but it's so iconic as the beginning of Harriet's modelling journey, ahh, on to Model Misfit!

    27. This book was a quick read during a car ride home and it had everything I wanted from it. It was funny, it was entertaining, it had a message but still something keeps me from giving it 5 stars. Maybe it was all too easy? I don't know. Still, this book was an awesome start to a contemporary series with the tendency to go upwards. In "Geek Girl" we get introduced to Harriet Manners who is, as you might guess, considered a Geek. After being discovered by a model scout she decides to change this b [...]

    28. I can't put it into words how much I loved this book! It was funny, quirky, heartwarming and realistic. I laughed out loud so many times! Thanks Holly Smale for the wonderful experience! Can't wait to continue with the series! :)

    29. This was fun and easy and what i expect it to be with the amount of overdone fluff, grin worthy lines and completely overdone "joke" moments. It clearly is a book targeted towards younger girls and i knew that going in and it was what i wanted: something silly and fun and easy to read and this book is exactly that!I enjoyed that Harriet is actually a smart and "geeky" girl that enjoys learning and learning facts that you will never ever need in "real" life (which i could relate really well to be [...]

    30. it was funny and fun, and entertaining, and definitely a quick read, but I feel like I would have enjoyed this so much more if I read this at the age of 14-16 (which would have been an impossibility to begin with, since this came out in 2013, which would have made me already 18 at the time. Gd I'm old -- did this review just become another medium in which I have an existential quarter-life crisis? maybe.)I'm still interested enough to find out what happens in the subsequent novels, and I love ch [...]
