    Geek Overload

    Before I begin describing what was actually inside the book, I feel like that ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUSLY PINK MARVEL OF A COVER NEEDS TO BE DISCUSSED. It is so fun, perfect and AAH. It honestly feels like a privilege to own books with beautiful covers and Queens of Geek was one of those. Also, this book was set in a fictional version of San Diego Comic Con which is the ONE CON my two best friends and I have been DYING to go to for years, and this book felt like I was living vicariously and I LOVED THAT. THOUGHTS: 1. This book tried to take on a LOT of topics – Anxiety, Sexuality, Body Shaming and Fame among others in a very small space. All of them were handled really well, and the intended message WAS put across, but in a book that is BARELY 300 pages, it felt rushed. Body Shaming got a chapter, Sexuality or rather Bisexuality was mostly given one conversation. I think it’s AWESOME that so much was there, I just wish it was all talked about more. 2. THIS WAS SET IN A CONVENTION. WITH THREE BEST FRIENDS. And I really really loved it. What’s better than a bunch of real best friends who are all geeks at the biggest convention in the world geeking out and falling in love? THE BEST THANK YOU! 3. While I thought that this book, and the issues it handled could have been dealt with in more depth, Anxiety was handled absolutely perfectly. More than anything else, I understood what Taylor was going through when the book was told in her viewpoint. I loved how it was explained to those of us who don’t suffer from Anxiety, I love how STRONG Taylor was at Supa Con. Basically I loved Taylor, and the writing that created her. 4. Taylor and Jamie are my new OTP. HONESTLY. Best Friend Romances are my ACHILLES HEEL or plot lines and while I’d love them on principle, I ADORE the chemistry that Jen Wilde manages to create between them. They were both suck adorable geeky humans and so easy to love. 5. I really liked Charlie as a person. She was strong and had her own insecurities and her voice was so powerful. She wasn’t just a pink haired movie star, she felt like a real person and I connected with her oh-so easily. Would I recommend reading this? UHM YES. If you’re a fangirl that loves reading books about Fangirls and best friends and Conventions, THIS IS SO FOR YOU! An important geek filled ride that will leave you smiling, swooning and booking tickets to the con you’ve always dreamed of going too! 4 stars.

    Must Read Book

    I have never read a book that I have connected with one of the main characters so deeply as I did with Queens of Geek. In Queens of Geek we follow three friends. Charlie, who is a break out actress with a blossoming Youtube channel, Jamie, who is in love with pretty much all things comics, and Taylor, who's one life goal is to meet the author of her all time favorite book series. I'm sure it's pretty easy to pick out who I connected with most considering, hello, I love to read. But I feel like Taylor was so similar to myself in so many more different ways that I just had to keep reading. Seeing Taylor have to work through not only panic attacks but also her social anxiety was kind of tough to get through because I know how those things feel. But being able to see, that with some support, she was able to get through everything that her anxiety threw at her, is a really hopeful thing to see. I know all to well how depression and anxiety works and I think Jen did a really great job at describing and expressing exactly what it feels like in those moments of an attack and what you think is going on in the world even though most of it is made up in your head. If you're a fellow nerd, like myself, then you will have the most fun reading this book. There are so many nerdy references all through it! The way that things were mentioned made me really feel that these three kids were the ultimate nerds just like I am, and kind of made me proud to be such a nerd too. Seeing what they liked and how excited they were for a con and cosplaying made me just love them as smol little beans. Now of course we know we have two love stories in this book. I did like one more than the other but I think that's because I connected with Taylor more. That's not to say that I did not love seeing Charlie's relationship too. I felt so proud for Charlie once she decided that Reese wasn't worth any more of her time. Also seeing Reese all throughout this book just made me angry for Charlie and I wasn't able to pretend to ever be a Chase stan. So when she see's Alyssa and you learn of Charlie's crush the whole time I just felt myself cheering her on. To watch what unfolds between the two and how it happens just made my heart so happy. But then you have Taylor and Jamie. Oh such precious little creatures. These two have been friends for years and are essentially the same people. They both love Queen Firestone, Jamie supports Taylor through her tough mental breakdowns, and Taylor geeks out at all the things that Jamie loves. Seeing the two of them blossom and realize "Hey I'm not the only one crushing here" was just so, ugh, perfect. I also loved the fact that Charlie was rooting them on the whole time too. To be completely honest I see myself having to reread this somewhere here in the near future. I have never read through a book that has made me want to highlight and tab specific things as much as this book had, just so I could go back and relive certain moments or certain things that were mentioned. I would suggest this book to absolutely everyone that has ever slightly considered themself a nerd. To be honest, you probably don't even need to be a nerd to appreciate these characters and their time at SupaCon. So needless to say, if you haven't read this book yet, go do it!
