Dive Into Diversity Family Series: Stepfamilies - […] Geek Girl. This book falls on the younger side of my reading, but it also seemed to explore the earlier days of Harriet’s stepmom being part of the family. I don’t recall how long it’s been since Harriet’s dad remarried, but I loved getting to see her develop such a strong affection for her stepmom and no longer seeing her as an outsider. […]

Alexa S. - I agree about Geek Girl reading a little younger, M! I thought it was pretty fun, and definitely entertaining though, and I’m glad you felt similarly.

Missie - I have seen this one around – I am glad you said it was on the younger side of YA so that I was prepared for that!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I really had a hard time getting into this one, and never finished it. It’s not that it is younger YA because I love books for all ages. I just wasn’t connecting to Harriet at all. Maybe I just wasn’t in the right mood frame.

I’m glad you enjoyed this for the most part, even though it wasn’t amazing.

L.C. Spoering - This sounds pretty cute! And I can’t resist a teenage geek girl with glasses, in memory of the one I once was. 🙂

Emma @ Miss Print - I hadn’t heard about this one until I saw your review but it sounds like a lot of fun. It sort of reminds me of the plots for Violet on the Runway and Love and Other Foreign Words–but if those two books were mashed together.

Alexa Y. - I had no idea that this was set in London! That immediately makes me want to add it to my TBR list (which is happening… RIGHT… NOW!)

I really adore the fact that this book really involves Ted’s family, and not just Ted herself. The relationship between sisters is always fun to read about, and I think I’d enjoy reading about Ted and Ava 🙂

elena - I <3 models and think their appeal is that they're odd looking (Gemma Ward in her heyday looked like an alien) because it's more striking in editorials or runways. so Ted sounds like a good choice if she's tall and looks interesting! go Ted. it sounds like a v touching journey & you can definitely feel for Ted. also yay for London.
