The Secret Loves of Geeks Reviews

  • Melanie  Hilliard
    Jun 24, 2018

    Starting out the last month of the year on the right foot with this follow-up to 2016 best-seller The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. It's no secret by now that I absolutely adored said anthology when I picked it up last year. I even went back to reread my review recently and got to exp...

    this was a good anthology but not as good as the first one. there's a disappointingly low number of graphic pieces, compared to the first title. some of the essays just weren't as interesting, as I ended up liking the few comic pieces a lot more. I especially liked "The Horror, The Ho...

    I received a free copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review If you liked The Secret Loves of Geek Girls then you will probably like this volume as well. While I'm glad that they did a girls-only volume first, expanding this volume to include everyone made for...

    Quick note from the editor: I've noticed some reviews saying there are less comics than the first volume. The first volume (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls) was 43% comics/pinups, 57% prose This volume (The Secret Loves of Geeks) is 54% comics/pinups, 46% prose This was calculat...

    A sequel to The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, and not dissimilar except that this time boys are allowed in the treehouse, so long as they're not too smelly. Cecil Castellucci opens with a wonderful piece about meeting her first geek love in a six week queue for the The Phantom Menace. Wh...

    I loved the first part (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls) and I also love this book. Honestly, they're so great. There's both short stories and comics in this collection. While the first one focused on the stories of all kinds of geeky ladies and their experiences, we now also get the...

    My rating is more like a 3.5, because of a few reasons. I read the first collection of stories and comics in The Secret Lives of Geek Girls, and easily fell in love with it. So when I saw that they put out another one I was really eager to read the new stories and lives these nerds had...

    i found this on overdrive and decided to check it out bc i just got a new library card and wanted to take advantage of it, haha. i enjoyed a lot of the mini comics in here, most of them were really cute and it was great to see so much intersectionality - there was queer poc rep as ewel...

    A fun blend of comics and prose that shows a wide range of geekdom, relationships, and identity. While some of the stories I could relate to more than others, they were all entertaining and wonderfully varied. I had hoped for a few more illustrated pieces, which might have just been du...

    A new anthology is here, sadly, I have to say it isn't as good as the previous book. :( I was definitely excited when I saw there would be another Geek book coming out, I quite liked the previous one, and so I was looking forward to this one. And I finally had the chance to order i...

    Cute, deeply personal and honest, I occasionally laughed out loud and almost teared up a few times. Often it felt like reading (illustrated) journal entries during periods of identity formation, regardless of age. Exploring love and loss through nerdom was brilliant and made things mor...

    It's interesting how so much of the conversation about sexual identity has changed within my own lifetime. Young people now have the words to describe who they are much more openly than twenty years ago. Beyond that, what struck me most about this book is the recognition of being comfo...

    Queer and geek, this book turned me into a puddle of joy and awkwardness. It made me feel valid and utterly happy with every page, even the ones a tiny bit sadder. Worth every second. ALSO THE ART WORK IS PERFECTION!!! Also Doctor Who references. POTTERHEAD LESBIAN COUPLE!!! ...

    I'll have to get back to this. Never thought I'd do a 'sneaky Goodreads visit'... ...

    4.5? Great, diverse, humorous collection. :) ...

    Be still my geeky heart. ...

    I need to say right up front that I am one of the contributing authors of this book, so therefore quite biased. I received my advance copy yesterday and sat down to read the whole book in less than 24 hours. It was DELIGHTFUL. A lovely balance of prose and comics, each story highlighti...

    As dazzling as the cover! (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss.) I can't believe I'm saying this, but I enjoyed The Secret Loves of Geeks even more than its predecessor, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. I had Geek Girls on pre-order, something ...

    I picked up and read this book on a lark. I chose it on the basis of its publishing house--Dark Horse--Team Whedon! This is a collection of standard text essays paired alongside graphic short stories. The volume is a collection, penned by various authors. I'd call this a work of non...

    Very cool compilation of "love" themed stories told in various ways. Like other comps I own/read I find there are always going to be some stories I absolutely love & adore while there will be some stories I just didn't care for. I'd like to share some brief thoughts on three select...

    I read a lot of content from these creatures, mostly their superhero and comic book so it was refreshing to see them do something so personal. The comics and prose in this anthology are beautiful and very personal. I was surprised to relate to so many of their experiences. It was also ...

    I'm of almost of two minds about this book. On one hand, compared to the first book, I identified more pieces as favorites. On the other, I think I found this collection, over all as more uneven than the first. Favorite Pieces: "My Phantom Menace", "The Horror, The Horror", "The 50...

    Mostly great! Faves were Dana Simpson?s ?Deceptively Normal? and Letty Wilson?s ?Smudged.? Also Gwen Benaway?s ?Being the Slayer,? but that could just be my Buffy bias. Could?ve done without the straight guys. Dr. Nerdlove? contributed the worst of the bunch...

    3 1/2 stars really. I love the perspectives on the book, ones you get to see so rarely in published work. I found the readability and quality to be a bit uneven though. Some great stories in there but I didn't find it to be as thoroughly enjoyable as the original Secret Loves of Geek G...

    Another excellent volume, though I didn't enjoy it QUITE as much of the first one. I think, partly because it seemed much shorter, and also there weren't really as many stories that I could personally relate to (though, others may find the opposite!). ...

    It was a super gentle anthology. I think there were a few clunkers that didn?t seem to fit the vibe of the rest of the book, but in general this book made me feel super warm and cozy. I got misty eyed a few times. I?d definitely recommend it if you?re usually into YA. ...

    A beautiful mixture of comics and short stories of geekiness, queerness, and love (in the many forms it can take) ...

    CUTE AND QUEER! CUTE AND QUEER! ...

    I loved the first part (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls) and I also love this book. Honestly, they're so great. There's both short stories and comics in this collection. While the first one focused on the stories of all kinds of geeky ladies and their experiences, we now also get the...

    My rating is more like a 3.5, because of a few reasons. I read the first collection of stories and comics in The Secret Lives of Geek Girls, and easily fell in love with it. So when I saw that they put out another one I was really eager to read the new stories and lives these nerds had...

    i found this on overdrive and decided to check it out bc i just got a new library card and wanted to take advantage of it, haha. i enjoyed a lot of the mini comics in here, most of them were really cute and it was great to see so much intersectionality - there was queer poc rep as ewel...

    A fun blend of comics and prose that shows a wide range of geekdom, relationships, and identity. While some of the stories I could relate to more than others, they were all entertaining and wonderfully varied. I had hoped for a few more illustrated pieces, which might have just been du...

    A new anthology is here, sadly, I have to say it isn't as good as the previous book. :( I was definitely excited when I saw there would be another Geek book coming out, I quite liked the previous one, and so I was looking forward to this one. And I finally had the chance to order i...

    Cute, deeply personal and honest, I occasionally laughed out loud and almost teared up a few times. Often it felt like reading (illustrated) journal entries during periods of identity formation, regardless of age. Exploring love and loss through nerdom was brilliant and made things mor...

    It's interesting how so much of the conversation about sexual identity has changed within my own lifetime. Young people now have the words to describe who they are much more openly than twenty years ago. Beyond that, what struck me most about this book is the recognition of being comfo...

    Queer and geek, this book turned me into a puddle of joy and awkwardness. It made me feel valid and utterly happy with every page, even the ones a tiny bit sadder. Worth every second. ALSO THE ART WORK IS PERFECTION!!! Also Doctor Who references. POTTERHEAD LESBIAN COUPLE!!! ...

    I'll have to get back to this. Never thought I'd do a 'sneaky Goodreads visit'... ...

    4.5? Great, diverse, humorous collection. :) ...

    Be still my geeky heart. ...

    I need to say right up front that I am one of the contributing authors of this book, so therefore quite biased. I received my advance copy yesterday and sat down to read the whole book in less than 24 hours. It was DELIGHTFUL. A lovely balance of prose and comics, each story highlighti...

    As dazzling as the cover! (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss.) I can't believe I'm saying this, but I enjoyed The Secret Loves of Geeks even more than its predecessor, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. I had Geek Girls on pre-order, something ...

    I picked up and read this book on a lark. I chose it on the basis of its publishing house--Dark Horse--Team Whedon! This is a collection of standard text essays paired alongside graphic short stories. The volume is a collection, penned by various authors. I'd call this a work of non...

    Very cool compilation of "love" themed stories told in various ways. Like other comps I own/read I find there are always going to be some stories I absolutely love & adore while there will be some stories I just didn't care for. I'd like to share some brief thoughts on three select...

    I read a lot of content from these creatures, mostly their superhero and comic book so it was refreshing to see them do something so personal. The comics and prose in this anthology are beautiful and very personal. I was surprised to relate to so many of their experiences. It was also ...

    I'm of almost of two minds about this book. On one hand, compared to the first book, I identified more pieces as favorites. On the other, I think I found this collection, over all as more uneven than the first. Favorite Pieces: "My Phantom Menace", "The Horror, The Horror", "The 50...

    Mostly great! Faves were Dana Simpson?s ?Deceptively Normal? and Letty Wilson?s ?Smudged.? Also Gwen Benaway?s ?Being the Slayer,? but that could just be my Buffy bias. Could?ve done without the straight guys. Dr. Nerdlove? contributed the worst of the bunch...

    3 1/2 stars really. I love the perspectives on the book, ones you get to see so rarely in published work. I found the readability and quality to be a bit uneven though. Some great stories in there but I didn't find it to be as thoroughly enjoyable as the original Secret Loves of Geek G...

    Another excellent volume, though I didn't enjoy it QUITE as much of the first one. I think, partly because it seemed much shorter, and also there weren't really as many stories that I could personally relate to (though, others may find the opposite!). ...

    It was a super gentle anthology. I think there were a few clunkers that didn?t seem to fit the vibe of the rest of the book, but in general this book made me feel super warm and cozy. I got misty eyed a few times. I?d definitely recommend it if you?re usually into YA. ...

    Another excellent volume, though I didn't enjoy it QUITE as much of the first one. I think, partly because it seemed much shorter, and also there weren't really as many stories that I could personally relate to (though, others may find the opposite!). ...

    this was a good anthology but not as good as the first one. there's a disappointingly low number of graphic pieces, compared to the first title. some of the essays just weren't as interesting, as I ended up liking the few comic pieces a lot more. I especially liked "The Horror, The Ho...

    Quick note from the editor: I've noticed some reviews saying there are less comics than the first volume. The first volume (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls) was 43% comics/pinups, 57% prose This volume (The Secret Loves of Geeks) is 54% comics/pinups, 46% prose This was calculat...

    this was a good anthology but not as good as the first one. there's a disappointingly low number of graphic pieces, compared to the first title. some of the essays just weren't as interesting, as I ended up liking the few comic pieces a lot more. I especially liked "The Horror, The Ho...

    I received a free copy of this book from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review If you liked The Secret Loves of Geek Girls then you will probably like this volume as well. While I'm glad that they did a girls-only volume first, expanding this volume to include everyone made for...

    Quick note from the editor: I've noticed some reviews saying there are less comics than the first volume. The first volume (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls) was 43% comics/pinups, 57% prose This volume (The Secret Loves of Geeks) is 54% comics/pinups, 46% prose This was calculat...

    A sequel to The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, and not dissimilar except that this time boys are allowed in the treehouse, so long as they're not too smelly. Cecil Castellucci opens with a wonderful piece about meeting her first geek love in a six week queue for the The Phantom Menace. Wh...

    I loved the first part (The Secret Loves of Geek Girls) and I also love this book. Honestly, they're so great. There's both short stories and comics in this collection. While the first one focused on the stories of all kinds of geeky ladies and their experiences, we now also get the...

    My rating is more like a 3.5, because of a few reasons. I read the first collection of stories and comics in The Secret Lives of Geek Girls, and easily fell in love with it. So when I saw that they put out another one I was really eager to read the new stories and lives these nerds had...

    i found this on overdrive and decided to check it out bc i just got a new library card and wanted to take advantage of it, haha. i enjoyed a lot of the mini comics in here, most of them were really cute and it was great to see so much intersectionality - there was queer poc rep as ewel...

    A fun blend of comics and prose that shows a wide range of geekdom, relationships, and identity. While some of the stories I could relate to more than others, they were all entertaining and wonderfully varied. I had hoped for a few more illustrated pieces, which might have just been du...

    A new anthology is here, sadly, I have to say it isn't as good as the previous book. :( I was definitely excited when I saw there would be another Geek book coming out, I quite liked the previous one, and so I was looking forward to this one. And I finally had the chance to order i...

    Cute, deeply personal and honest, I occasionally laughed out loud and almost teared up a few times. Often it felt like reading (illustrated) journal entries during periods of identity formation, regardless of age. Exploring love and loss through nerdom was brilliant and made things mor...

    It's interesting how so much of the conversation about sexual identity has changed within my own lifetime. Young people now have the words to describe who they are much more openly than twenty years ago. Beyond that, what struck me most about this book is the recognition of being comfo...

    Queer and geek, this book turned me into a puddle of joy and awkwardness. It made me feel valid and utterly happy with every page, even the ones a tiny bit sadder. Worth every second. ALSO THE ART WORK IS PERFECTION!!! Also Doctor Who references. POTTERHEAD LESBIAN COUPLE!!! ...

    I'll have to get back to this. Never thought I'd do a 'sneaky Goodreads visit'... ...

    4.5? Great, diverse, humorous collection. :) ...

    Be still my geeky heart. ...

    I need to say right up front that I am one of the contributing authors of this book, so therefore quite biased. I received my advance copy yesterday and sat down to read the whole book in less than 24 hours. It was DELIGHTFUL. A lovely balance of prose and comics, each story highlighti...

    As dazzling as the cover! (Full disclosure: I received a free e-ARC for review through Edelweiss.) I can't believe I'm saying this, but I enjoyed The Secret Loves of Geeks even more than its predecessor, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. I had Geek Girls on pre-order, something ...

    I picked up and read this book on a lark. I chose it on the basis of its publishing house--Dark Horse--Team Whedon! This is a collection of standard text essays paired alongside graphic short stories. The volume is a collection, penned by various authors. I'd call this a work of non...

    Very cool compilation of "love" themed stories told in various ways. Like other comps I own/read I find there are always going to be some stories I absolutely love & adore while there will be some stories I just didn't care for. I'd like to share some brief thoughts on three select...

    I read a lot of content from these creatures, mostly their superhero and comic book so it was refreshing to see them do something so personal. The comics and prose in this anthology are beautiful and very personal. I was surprised to relate to so many of their experiences. It was also ...

    I'm of almost of two minds about this book. On one hand, compared to the first book, I identified more pieces as favorites. On the other, I think I found this collection, over all as more uneven than the first. Favorite Pieces: "My Phantom Menace", "The Horror, The Horror", "The 50...

    Mostly great! Faves were Dana Simpson?s ?Deceptively Normal? and Letty Wilson?s ?Smudged.? Also Gwen Benaway?s ?Being the Slayer,? but that could just be my Buffy bias. Could?ve done without the straight guys. Dr. Nerdlove? contributed the worst of the bunch...

    3 1/2 stars really. I love the perspectives on the book, ones you get to see so rarely in published work. I found the readability and quality to be a bit uneven though. Some great stories in there but I didn't find it to be as thoroughly enjoyable as the original Secret Loves of Geek G...

    Another excellent volume, though I didn't enjoy it QUITE as much of the first one. I think, partly because it seemed much shorter, and also there weren't really as many stories that I could personally relate to (though, others may find the opposite!). ...

    It was a super gentle anthology. I think there were a few clunkers that didn?t seem to fit the vibe of the rest of the book, but in general this book made me feel super warm and cozy. I got misty eyed a few times. I?d definitely recommend it if you?re usually into YA. ...

    A beautiful mixture of comics and short stories of geekiness, queerness, and love (in the many forms it can take) ...
