Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, which I just googled and am now indebted to because I have discovered a whole lot of my TBR that way. Thank you!
Today's pick is Queens of Geek, a fandom contemporary YA romance by Jen Wilde. I love, love, love the trend of fandom novels, because they make me reminisce about my days hunting down Harry Potter femslash (like, Monday) and trading theories over Livejournal (well, Tumblr, but...Monday.) I've been promised diverse, sensitively handled love stories along with a big dose of modern fandom, and can't wait! Queen of Geek will be out on 14 March 2017.
Three friends. Two love stories. One convention.
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, an empowering young adult novel by Jen Wilde, is all about fandom, friendship, and finding the courage to be yourself.
