    The Secret Loves of Geek Girls is a non-fiction anthology mixing prose, comics, and illustrated stories on the lives and loves of an amazing cast of female creators.Can I just say that this was exactly my kind of anthology?There are a lot of short stories in this one (around 50), so I decided to feature the ones that captured my heart the most:This review contains mild spoilers.Comics by Margaret Atwood: We start out with 4 comics from Margaret Atwood that I throughly enjoyed.Minas Truth by Marg [...]

    Ahh what a book. I loved it so much. The contributors are so diverse: LGBQ, trans, poly, asexual, demisexual, you name it, there's a geek girl writing about it. I had to take a break every few essays because I was so emotional. It's really nice to feel understood by something you're reading, but it can be overwhelming when it hits SO close to home. If you call yourself a geek or nerd, there's a story in here for you.


  • Sharon

    The Secret Loves of Geek Girls is a nonfiction anthology about crushes and friendships and romantic relationships. It tells a variety of stories, written by contributors that include trans women, bisexual women, and women of color. Most of it is prose, but there are some short comics and illustrations interspersed throughout the book. Some of it is written as advice, and a few pieces play around with format, but lots of pieces are straight-up memoir. The book is full of references to big fandoms [...]

    Me, while reading this: It took me a long time to get through this book. Longer than it should have. I couldn't connect with some of the stories, but man, I (overly) connected with others. I laughed a few times, but I cried many times, because the words hit too close to home (looking at you, Marguerite Bennett). This collection is great because there are a lot of stories by many different women, and there's something for every geek girl to connect with. It's very difficult to get through if you' [...]

    I'm sitting here in my Doctor Who shirt, after having read two books in three days, reviewing this book while also possibly bawling. Maybe. Okay, I'm bawling.I'm a late in life geek. Most people realize they are a geek early and have time to acclimate. I was a weird amalgamation of multiple labels growing up. I hung out with the smart kids. We were in AP classes, and were good at school and stuff. I read a great deal, willingly, which was weird at the time. But I was also a fairly gifted athlete [...]


  • Victoria (victoriashaz)

    5/5I adore this anthology. There are a lot of amazing Canadian writers and artists that are showcased in this anthology (which I love seeing as a Canadian!)But with this anthology, I found a lot of resemblance to myself and I think that is what made it so appealing. Realistically, I think that's why it was made, and why it's so important that it was made. I think this work finally shows the three dimensional female figures that we all know exist in the geek world, but are rarely seeing when read [...]

    ok guys, I really LOVED this. some stories hit me harder than others but when they did, damn, they hit hard. this anthology is so honest, and fun, and dark, and simple, and complicated: everything love is. also, it's inclusive AND diverse! the comics are wonderful and the stories too. there's so many ladies I admite in this! URGH I JUST REALLY LIKED THIS AND CAN'T MAKE ANY SENSE OF MY FEELINGSfull review here: catshelf.wordpress/2016/0


  • Kate

    I backed this on Kickstarter so, full disclosure there. Also I did not intend to sit down and read this in one sitting but I did. I feel like I read it a bit too fast (I definitely didn't; I've apparently been sitting here for a while). When I read this again, and I'm sure there will be several repeat readings, I may need to stretch out. One work a day or something.Being a Geek Girl (nerd girl, fangirl, whatever your preferred nomenclature) can be an isolating experience as much as it is a colle [...]

    What's your Patronus? I ask, and it seems strange that I have not asked until now. These are the questions that matter more, more than how many siblings we have, than what our parents do for a living, then what television shows we follow in the fall. What is your Patronus? What is the thing that represents all protection to you, all reassurance, all strength, all love? What is the happiest moment you can remember, to summon the spell to you? What drives away the dark in your heart?The Secret Lov [...]

    Halfway through reading this, a friend asked what I thought of it. I told her I liked it because it gave me a POV on realities I've never experienced. I appreciated the stories from a female/geek/lesbian/coloured/ethnic minority/social outcast perspective. Various combinations of these traits gave me a lot to think about what I felt was by definition "different" than me. The stories themselves are all sorts of funny, touching and consistently interesting. The same holds true for the comics inclu [...]


  • Csenge

    I would pay good money to someone to take a side-trip in a TARDIS and drop this book off into the mailbox of my 14-year-old self.Or, even better, for a mysterious rich patron to distribute a copy of it to all CURRENT adolescent girls. Geek and non-geek ones alike. Even at the age of one-week-short-of-30, The Secret Loves of Geek Girls seriously changed my life. It's going to be a while before I can put it all to words, because right now I am just sitting like a happy little bundle under the Chri [...]


  • Melissa

    A great mix of stories about the Secret Loves of Geek Girls. I personally loved that it mixed stories, short comics, and essays covering loves from fandom to loving relationships, from friends to lovers, happily ever afters to heartbreaks.


  • Deera

    This anthology about geek girls and their relationships was an interesting reading experience. It's a mix of short stories and comics. The artwork is beautiful. Some of the stories were fantastic; some were dull. Overall, I enjoyed it, but no need to race to your nearest book buying facility.


  • Margo

    Borrowed this from the library as Margaret Atwood was a contributor to the mix of short stories and graphic novels (can you call them graphic novels when they're less than 5 pages long?). Only dipped in here and there as it wasn't really my cup of tea. Stories were too short and tried too hard to be clever.


  • Sue

    I loved this book. There were some that were a little weird and random but, for the most part, completely relateable. The awkwardness of not dating when all you other friends were or not dating until you were a little older. Finding people who really get you and all different types of relationships. These woman talk about it all. There many times where I wished I had this in my early 20s.


  • Eva

    Interesting, for sure, with some insightful essays and stories, but a lot of the stories were too genre-specific for me to really connect to.


  • Amber

    Kinda all over the place, but I blame that mostly on the changing media and how many contributors there were. I feel like it would have benefited by dividing and expanding.


  • Stewart Tame

    Positively delightful! This is an anthology, a mixture of comics and prose revolving around the theme of the title. Most of the stories seem to be autobiography, not surprising really. There are tales of first loves and crushes and the awkwardness of figuring out how dating and relationships work anyway (hint: It involves much more improvisation than is apparent at first glance. Most people are just as nervous about it as you; they're just putting up a good front.) Although I've never been femal [...]

  • Marie the Librarian

    Some of these stories are amazing! But overall I really like this anthology! So diverse and geeky! Love it!


  • Julie

    This book is about love. The love of all things geeky, the love of other people like us. Learning that love isn't just about liking the same things, as in the story "Nerd Love" by Irene Koh. Reticent and reserved love, trapped in a world that seems sex obsessed as related by Megan Kearney.Love of movie stars who represent something they're not. Love of superheroes. Love of everything with David Bowie in it. Long-distance love conducted entirely by computer terminal and iPhone. Love we can never [...]


  • Dolly

    This book offers a large collection of short stories by and about women. The tales cover myriad subjects, not the least of which is sexuality. For those who think this is 'just another graphic novel,' please be warned that the subject matter is often mature and should be targeted to young adults and, perhaps, very mature middle graders. The stories are important and validate many of the feelings that women have felt unable to express in other media. It is an inclusive book that does not shy away [...]


  • Kaitlin

    This was a mixed one for me but the majority of the book I did really like or related to in some form or other. It's a hard one to review because there are so may different formats and styles throughout that you're bound to like/love some and not like others, but I definitely think there were more I enjoyed a lot than not.This is a book which includes various female creators in various medias talking about their loves, lives and passions. We see most 'stories' take up between 1-5pgs and so each [...]


  • Saoirse

    A really cute book. Often funny, always charming, sometimes painfully familiar. Some of the contributors I'd never heard of: ones I do know include an intriguing mix of women I've met at cons/festivals; women whose work I've loved; women whose work I totally didn't get; and women whose work i've studied at school And Mariko Tamaki, who happens to be all of the above. If you are or have been a nerd or a girl, there is probably at least one story you will find relatable in this book. There are sto [...]


  • Erin Diane

    i received my PDF copy via backing the kickstarter. i told myself i'd only skim through and wait to receive my physical copy to really dive in, but i found myself staying up late, hunched over my laptop, reading every single panel and story. i connected with each author's words, their vision, their styles. thanks so much to hope nicholson and the contributors for putting this amazing collection together!


  • Arielle ⭐ Cursebreaker ⭐

    This was super cute and I loved the stories but I actually was expecting something else out of this. I really thought it was going to be more about what geek girls love, not geek girls in love. But like I said, still super cute and the confusion was totally based upon my own neglect to actually read the blurb about what this was about haha. I saw "love" and "geek girls" and got excited and that's about it!


  • Lexie

    ALL MY LOVE. I'll be buying the Dark Horse edition as well, but I'm so very very glad I was able to help Kickstart this wonderful collection.


  • Kaia Landelius

    This one only took so long to read because I'm in a period where I can't focus for more than 10 mins at a time at literally anything. I did love this book A LOT. It's full of nerds and love and awkwardness and COMICS and you know, so many other things.There was so much good in here, but I especially loved these bits (right click and open in a new tab for full size):(view spoiler)[Cherry by Cherelle Higgins, illustrations by Rachael Wells.Bemused by Roberta Gregory.Fan Fiction, F/F, Angst by Tini [...]


  • Chinook

    Like all anthologies, this one had its ups and its downs. It was rather unique, I thought, and some of the pieces really resonated with me. One even mentioned a Warhammer game shop on the way into the subway at the Eatin's Centre that I can see in my head clearly, I've passed it so many times. There was even a reference to Denver Comic Con. So, I'm glad I read it, even though some bits were not as awesome as others. And the only reason it took me so long to read is that the library loan expired [...]


  • Sara

    A great compilation of essays and cartoons by multigenerational geek women, about being awkward, being in love while being different—and as is so often the case—not really being in love, but thinking you are because you’re trying so hard to meet the expectations set forth by narratives that would just as soon exclude you. Take that, parallel structure! Some very fresh approaches to storytelling as well.
