Geek Girl

Geek Girl - Holly Smale I didn't know how to rate this book and even though I gave it three stars, I would have rated it 2,5 if it had been possible, because it was ok-ish, just not what I had expected. While I share the main character's opinion on fashion, I had expected her to be geeky in a different way. It's implied that she's good with Math, Chemistry and Physics, but the only geeky thing that we see is her knowledge of what many people would call useless facts.

It was a very light book, so it's perfect for when you don't have much time. It also has very short chapters, so reading "one more chapter" before doing something won't change your schedule. However, it was too childish for me. People closer to the main character's age may like it more, although, to be honest, I doubt that I would have liked it more when I was fifteen. The main character is more or less fine, because she is fifteen, even though she is too naïve for fifteen, but her father and one of the people in the fashion industry are as childish as she is most of the time and sometimes even more. Seeing as both adult characters are quite important in the story and that there aren't many more adult characters in it, it's a bit too much juvenile behaviour for one book.

I may read the rest of the series, but I would not recommed this book to people looking to read something with a geeky main character.
