Waiting On Wednesday #101: GEEK GIRL by Holly Smale (YA)


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 



This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)




What I'm waiting for...


Geek Girl #1
by Holly Smale 
Expected release date: January 27th, 2015
Published by: Harper Teen
Genre: Young Adult Contemporary
Format: Hardcover, eBook


SUMMARY

Geek + runway = a hilarious runaway hit! 
This bestselling UK debut is full of humor and high-fashion hijinks — 
and now it’s coming to America.

Harriet Manners is tired of being labeled a geek. So when she’s discovered by a modeling agent, she seizes the chance to reinvent herself. There’s only one problem: 
Harriet is the definition of awkward. 
Does she have what it takes to transform from geek to chic?

Geek Girl is the first book in a hilarious new trilogy. It was also the #1 bestselling YA debut of 2013 in the UK, where it was shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and won the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize for Best Book for Teens. With all the humor and fabulous shenanigans of Louise Rennison’s Confessions of Georgia Nicolson and Meg Cabot’s The Princess DiariesGeek Girl is about to become an international superstar.


Why I'm waiting for GEEK GIRL...

First of all, LOOK at that cover!!!
You all must know by now that I do judge books by their covers, and I absolutely adore this one!

This book had me by its title too! 

AND, I've heard so much about this trilogy! I'm happy to see it finally coming to the U.S.


SO, what are you waiting for???
