Geek Girl: Head Over Heels by Holly Smale

I love love love the Geek Girl series by Holly Smale. I adore them.  On Tuesday I received a free eARC of the fifth full book in the series – Head Over Heels which is being published 7th April 2016. I just about managed to avoid starting it till I was on the train to London the next day.  But it was tough, I was excited about this book!

“My name is Harriet Manners, and I will always be a geek.”

The fifth book in the bestselling, award-winning GEEK GIRL series.

Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is.

She knows duck-billed platypuses don’t have stomachs.
She knows that fourteen squirrels were once detained as spies.
She knows only one flag in the world features a building.

And for once, Harriet knows exactly how her life should go. She’s got it ALL planned out. So when love is in the air, Harriet is determined to Make Things Happen!
If only everyone else would stick to the script…

Has GEEK GIRL overstepped the mark, and is following the rules going to break hearts all over again?

It’s so tempting just to gush about this book and how much I enjoyed it.  I have reviews of three of the previous books on here already (Geek Girl, Model Misfit and All That Glitters – I didn’t review book 3 Picture Perfect or the two shorter add on books) and I don’t want to cover the same ground in this.

Holly Smale smashes it once again with this book and Geek Girl remains an amazing series that just gets better with every new book. Harriet is growing as a character but has the same madcap adventures and flaws that make her one of my favourite fictional characters.  And at times even after five plus books she can surprise me.

These books are well written, full of great characters and funny.  They’re realistic but feel good reads and they always make me smile. I think these are better than I remember the books for teens being when I was a teenager.

Buy them right now. If you’re not a YA reader it would be a great series to try YA out for the first time. Or if I can’t convince you to do that, buy them for a teenager in your life.
