Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde

Inside cover blurb:

“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.”

This book is so friggin’ cute, it hurts.

Allll of the characters and their storylines are great- Charlie, struggling with how to be in a relationship and still be herself, and Taylor, struggling with change and self-acceptance.

At first, I thought the book would be kind of shallow. And it did kind of give me some Famous in Love feels (the show…I haven’t read the book, which I know, shame on me) in the depiction of Charlie and Reese’s relationship. But the comparison ends there.

This book covers all your bases: feminism, mental health awareness, sexuality, race…there’s actually a lot of depth packed into this gem!

And all of the fandom references made my heart so happy. Any book that mentions Supernatural is automatically getting a high rating from me.

Plus: Fandoms! Fantastic depiction of social anxiety disorders. And adorable geek romance. It’s the perfect storm.

Minus: Reese is a total douche! But he’s supposed to be that way, unfortunately.
