It’s December and you know what that means! Christmas is coming!!! I’m so excited for the Christmas season and I am happy to be able to spend it with my family and everyone I love.
I am so happy to say I am continuing Beyond the Surface into the new year. We can never have enough platforms to discuss mental illness or even just read about it to get informed. I am currently figuring how to rework the book club to get it working a little better so hopefully in January there will be some new fun book club related things to look forward to.
I am happy to be able to celebrate Christmas by reading our December book of the month: Queens of Geek!
Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
Three friends, two love stories, one convention: this fun, feminist love letter to geek culture is all about fandom, friendship, and finding the courage to be yourself.
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.
Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, is an empowering novel for anyone who has ever felt that fandom is family.
Why I picked this book for December:
1. The Geeky Cuteness of what this will be feels like just the right amount of happiness for the Christmas season.
2. It’s one of the first Vlogger convention combo I have seen and I’m so excited to see how much of it I can relate to.
3. There is not one, but two love stories!
4. There is Asperger and Anxiety reps.
5. It feels like an all inclusive come as you are kind of book that I think the world needs to read.
6. I could not resist that cover.
7. Anything described as a feminist love letter is something good to read in my book.
8. I simply want to read it so I can fangirl all over it!
