Review of Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde (paperback)




Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

Three friends, two love stories, one convention: this fun, feminist love letter to geek culture is all about fandom, friendship, and finding the courage to be yourself.

Charlie likes to stand out. She’s a vlogger and actress promoting her first movie at SupaCon, and this is her chance to show fans she’s over her public breakup with co-star Reese Ryan. When internet-famous cool-girl actress Alyssa Huntington arrives as a surprise guest, it seems Charlie’s long-time crush on her isn’t as one-sided as she thought.

Taylor likes to blend in. Her brain is wired differently, making her fear change. And there’s one thing in her life she knows will never change: her friendship with her best guy friend Jamie—no matter how much she may secretly want it to. But when she hears about a fan contest for her favorite fandom, she starts to rethink her rules on playing it safe.

Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, is an empowering novel for anyone who has ever felt that fandom is family.

Sunshine Blogger Award (4 of them combined)



(I’m not sure who made this graphic.  I found it in my saved blog photos album from a year or two ago.)


As you’ve probably noticed by now, I’m horrible with doing tags.  I love being tagged.  I have no idea why it takes me so long except that I feel like I get tagged in a lot all at once and then nothing for awhile.


Here are the four blogs that tagged me for this.  I hope you check them out.

Mom’s Book Collection  Nut Free Nerd  Sophie’s Corner  Metaphors and Miscellanea

A slow down for December


I still plan on posting daily, but it’s hard to say if that will happen.  But overall, I will have less posts up in December.  It’s a busy month for people and a slow month for book releases.


Also, if you don’t see me commenting as much, it’s because of my wrist hurting again.  I was ok for awhile, but the pain is back.  I’m hoping the slow down will help with that.  I will still be around and you’ll see me liking posts and sharing some on twitter.

Goodreads Monday 11/25/19

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

It’s getting hard to remember which ones I’ve done already, so I’m sorry if you see a book pop up on these more than once.  It will happen.



With The Fire On High

With her daughter to care for and her abuela to help support, high school senior Emoni Santiago has to make the tough decisions, and do what must be done. The one place she can let her responsibilities go is in the kitchen, where she adds a little something magical to everything she cooks, turning her food into straight-up goodness. Still, she knows she doesn’t have enough time for her school’s new culinary arts class, doesn’t have the money for the class’s trip to Spain — and shouldn’t still be dreaming of someday working in a real kitchen. But even with all the rules she has for her life — and all the rules everyone expects her to play by — once Emoni starts cooking, her only real choice is to let her talent break free.

Update on my Fall 5 Star Predictions

This is the original post.


Tunnel of Bones

I did give this one 5 stars.

Down The TBR Hole #109


Down The TBR Hole is a meme created by lost in a story that revolves around cleansing your TBR of all those books you’re never going to read and sort through it all to know what’s actually on there.

Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when youre scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well thats going to change!

It works like this:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if youre feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go
