My name is Harriet Manners and I’ll be a geek forever…

The FINAL book in the bestselling, award-winning GEEK GIRL series is here!

Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is.

Modelling isn’t a sure-fire route to popularity. Neither is making endless lists.
The people you love don’t expect you to transform into someone else.
Statistically you are more likely to not meet your Australian ex-boyfriend in Australia than bump into him there.

So on the trip of a lifetime Down Under Harriet’s to-do lists are gone and it’s Nat’s time to shine! Yet with nearly-not-quite-boyfriend Jasper back home, Harriet’s completely unprepared to see supermodel ex Nick. Is the fashion world about to turn ugly for GEEK GIRL?

It’s time for Harriet to face the future. Time to work out where her heart lies. To learn how to let go…

The Review: It’s over! Forever Geek is the final book in Holly Smale’s geektastic and loveable Geek Girl series and I for one am so sad this is the end for Harriet and the gang but I’m also very happy with how the series ended. It was just perfect! 

This time around we see Harriet take on a new modelling job – or so she thinks – but this time she’s going to Australia. The timing is a little off seems as Harriet has just started a little romance with Jasper but they’re not quite at the boyfriend-girlfriend stage just yet. So Harriet jets off with her Gran and best friend and tries not to think about whose country she’s actually travelling to – her ex Lion Boy. But as well all know Harriet, her trips/modelling jobs are never simple and easy and soon Harriet finds herself trying to take charge of her own live but can she make the right choices? 

I’m so glad I started this series. It was always a series I wasn’t sure if I was going to like because although it’s YA, Harriet is quiet a young character but once I started it’s been impossible to forget her. She’s such a loveable character – one with so many interesting, quirky and strange facts. She’s literally like a walking encyclopaedia that knows so much stuff that no other person her age would know. Tell a lie – I’m 31 and I don’t even know half the stuff she knows, so as a reader it’s really interesting to see what facts she’ll tell us. 

As the series has progress Harriet has grown up, she’s made mistakes and learned from them and even in Forever Geek she’s constantly learning new things about herself and how to be a better person. I love that. We’ve seen her change through-out each book and apart of myself is sad to now part ways with her and with all the secondary characters too. Now I’m a romance girl through and through and one of the reason’s I fell in love with Harriett’s story was because of her relationship with Nick aka Lion Boy and it’s the one thing I wanted to see wrapped up in this book. And Holly Smale didn’t disappoint. I don’t want to say too much but I loved the way it ended. It was just what I wanted.

In all, Forever Geek is the perfect end to a series that I’m sad to leave behind. But I’m hoping the author will re-visit Harriett in the near future. 

Thank you to HarperCollins for giving me the opportunity to review this book in exchange for an honest review.
