Waiting on Wednesday (4)

New WoW

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that people are eagerly anticipating.

I haven’t done a Waiting on Wednesday post since last year but my new schedule allows me to be able to slot them in and I’m really looking forward to showcasing some of the titles I’m very excited about. This week I’ve chosen a sequel to one of my favourite books. If you haven’t already read the first book then I urge you to right away because you won’t regret it.

The book is…

Geek Girl: Model Misfit by Holly Smale! 


“My name is Harriet Manners, and I am still a geek.”

Harriet knows that modelling won’t transform you. She knows that being as uniquely odd as a polar bear isn’t necessarily a bad thing (even in a rainforest). And that the average person eats a ton of food a year, though her pregnant stepmother is doing her best to beat this.

What Harriet doesn’t know is where she’s going to fit in once the new baby arrives.

With summer plans ruined, modelling in Japan seems the perfect chance to get as far away from home as possible. But nothing can prepare Harriet for the craziness of Tokyo, her competitive model flatmates and her errant grandmother’s ‘chaperoning’. Or seeing gorgeous Nick everywhere she goes.

Because, this time, Harriet knows what a broken heart feels like.

Can geek girl find her place on the other side of the world or is Harriet lost for good?

Doesn’t it sound AMAZING? Geek Girl: Model Misfit is published 26th September 2013 (one month before my birthday! Yay!)
