Summary

All I want for Christmas is...a new Geek Girl story!

Harriet Manners knows a lot about Christmas. She knows that every year Santa climbs down 91.8 million chimneys. She knows that Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer was almost definitely a girl. She knows that the first artificial Christmas trees were made out of goose feathers.

But this Christmas is extra special for Harriet, because four days ago she had her First Ever Kiss. Now she just needs to work out what's supposed to happen next....

A romantic, festive treat from the internationally best-selling, award-winning author of the Geek Girl series. Also includes a bonus, previously unpublished Geek Girl short story, "Team Geek!"

"I would highly recommend Geek Girl to anyone who likes a good laugh and enjoys a one-of-a-kind story." (Mia, Guardian Children's Books website)

It was Okay but it wasn't the best sadly

this book wasn't a hype for me because for a novella it was super short and I didn't really feel the Narrator who played Harriet I sadly found this audio a little boring which was a shame since I love the Geek Girl series but it just felt like flat and I wished the Narrator had someone with her to play Nick because her boy voice just wasn't for me at all so I gave this a four stars!

My Favorite

If you are debating on skipping this to jump to the second book--DON'T. I think this short story is my favorite of the series. It was so cute to be with Harriet as she tries to navigate the dating waters, all while geekily messing up along the way. My husband laughed as well. This short story is too cute to pass up.

loved following Harriet's side story

this book focused on the romance during the holiday season, which is so perfect for romantic YA. Does not disappoint :)
