The Secret Loves of Geeks Reviews

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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'... ...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    CUTE AND QUEER! CUTE AND QUEER! ...

    I read mostly the graphic novel parts to be honest, but some of the stories. I liked the content, and some of the comics were really good but I also felt like half the book revolved around Star Wars. ...

    This is an anthology of comics and prose and is really a 3.5. My favorites, "What Girls Want" by Speranza and "Love in Alderaan Places" by JP Larocque ...

    I'm not rating this book because a lot of it just wasn't for me/I didn't really 'get' some of the stories. I think this book will probably be more well received by allosexual/alloromantic people. I was happy to see there were lots of stories by queer peole and especially happy to see a...

    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...

    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 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...

    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'... ...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    CUTE AND QUEER! CUTE AND QUEER! ...

    I read mostly the graphic novel parts to be honest, but some of the stories. I liked the content, and some of the comics were really good but I also felt like half the book revolved around Star Wars. ...

    This is an anthology of comics and prose and is really a 3.5. My favorites, "What Girls Want" by Speranza and "Love in Alderaan Places" by JP Larocque ...

    A semi-sequel to The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, this book tries to step it up and falters just a smidge. I loved the inclusiveness of this book, how so many more genders, sexualities, lifestyles, ethnicities, and backgrounds were represented among the contributors. More topics were br...

    I'm not rating this book because a lot of it just wasn't for me/I didn't really 'get' some of the stories. I think this book will probably be more well received by allosexual/alloromantic people. I was happy to see there were lots of stories by queer peole and especially happy to see a...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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'... ...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...

    I read mostly the graphic novel parts to be honest, but some of the stories. I liked the content, and some of the comics were really good but I also felt like half the book revolved around Star Wars. ...

    A semi-sequel to The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, this book tries to step it up and falters just a smidge. I loved the inclusiveness of this book, how so many more genders, sexualities, lifestyles, ethnicities, and backgrounds were represented among the contributors. More topics were br...

    I'm not rating this book because a lot of it just wasn't for me/I didn't really 'get' some of the stories. I think this book will probably be more well received by allosexual/alloromantic people. I was happy to see there were lots of stories by queer peole and especially happy to see a...

    This is an anthology of comics and prose and is really a 3.5. My favorites, "What Girls Want" by Speranza and "Love in Alderaan Places" by JP Larocque ...

    A semi-sequel to The Secret Loves of Geek Girls, this book tries to step it up and falters just a smidge. I loved the inclusiveness of this book, how so many more genders, sexualities, lifestyles, ethnicities, and backgrounds were represented among the contributors. More topics were br...

    I'm not rating this book because a lot of it just wasn't for me/I didn't really 'get' some of the stories. I think this book will probably be more well received by allosexual/alloromantic people. I was happy to see there were lots of stories by queer peole and especially happy to see a...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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'... ...

    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...

    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...

    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. ...
