Head Over Heels - Geek Girl #5

May 26, 2016


Title: Head Over Heels

Author: Holly Smale

Genre: UKYA, Contemporary, Humour

Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is.

She knows that 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?

Intermission: I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS BOOK SINCE LAST YEAR HECK TO THE FREAKIN' YES-I should have reviewed the previous books but I'll do that later, okay xD . And well... if you haven't read the other books, don't start with this one. Seriously, it will ruin a lot.

Moving on...

Opinion: In my opinion, I thought this book was absolutely brilliant and the only one in the series that was better than the second book, Model Misfit.

Harriet Manners has definitely matured in this book (although I had my doubts at certain parts). Though her selfish side makes a reappearance in this story, I think that Harriet has shown some character growth compared to the last books.

I loved reading the various facts scattered throughout the book. I loved that twist that took place. I was surprised that I was okay with a certain cliché thing that happened but I saw that coming in the last book!

There are definitely some characters from previous books that reappear (YAAASS). Toby Pilgrim was absolutely hilarious in this book. Wilbur... I didn't like him as much for some reason.

Recommendation: For Holly Smale fans, obviously. But if you want to read a different style of YA, you might want to check out this series!

Rating: **** - Four stars out of five

  1. I saw this book on the shelf at the store the other day and was mildly intrigued, but didn't end up picking it up. I'm glad I didn't because I didn't know it was a series, and that's never good to start with the last book or something. Was the romance a large part of the book?

    1. No. It was more about a geek trying to model.

  2. That book sounds interesting. :)

    Hey, I was wondering. How did you get the contact form on your blog? Is it a gadget?


Keep it all clean, man. Well, if you really wanna curse, use minor swear words. And I mean the minorest of minor ones.

"Or what?" you ask in indignation.

"Or else."
