Happy Thursday! I’ve almost caught up with all my reviews! The Secret Loves of Geek Girls is the second book I finished for my readathon at the beginning of the month. I don’t remember why I added it to my Goodreads TBR way back when, but I thought it was a graphic novel when I bought it, which was fairly recent. And sure, some of the stories are told in graphic novel or comic book style but not all (Goodreads).

My Rating: 2.75 out of 5 stars
I just might be starting to learn my lesson of needing to know at least a little bit of what I’m picking up. Once again, I was surprised to learn what the book was, which was not what I thought it was going to be. I expected cute, fiction love stories, and don’t get me wrong there was some cuteness. Although it was mostly non-fiction, cute and not cute. I found that I struggled to get through a lot of the stories that were text format. I thought they were kind of boring, to be honest. At times, I found myself looking forward and counting the pages until I got to a story that was in a different format because it was more entertaining, but always way too short.
I really do appreciate the purpose of the book and the lessons in every story. For example, divorce is okay and can even be friends after sometimes, or learning how to date, or it’s okay to act fast or take things slow. I would say the biggest take away is communication; talking is the best way to make everyone more comfortable even though starting the conversation isn’t always easy.
For someone who is a self proclaimed geek and needs some guidance, this is perfect. I definitely took away a little something myself.
As always, thanks for reading!
