Queen Geek Social Club by Laura Preble Book Review

The Queen Geek Social Club by Laura Preble
(Penguin, Paperback)


Shelby Chapelle is happy being a loner geek, until Becca Gallagher moves into town. Becca is a geek too, but she's a geek with ambition. Becca wants to start The Queen Geek Social Club at their high school and recruit other geeky girls to join them. Throw in a few other queen geeks and a popular guy who just happens to have a little geek in him, and Shelby is in for an exciting freshman year.

Ok, so I have to admit that this book intrigued me because, well, let's just say that I'm a bit of a geek myself. My brother often calls me by the affectionate nickname "dork". So I understood Shelby and enjoyed reading about her friendship with Becca. Shelby has always enjoyed being the lone geek, so she's not too sure if she's ready for Becca's grand publicity schemes. Preble follows up this book with Queen Geeks in Love, another funny geek novel. In Queen Geeks in Love, Shelby, Becca, and the other Queen Geeks decide to create a comic book based on themselves - The Queen Geek Superheroes. And Shelby has to come to terms with her relationship with Fletcher (the cute, popular, geek guy) - will she stay a lone Queen Geek or is Fletcher worth opening up her heart? If you've ever thought of yourself as a geek or maybe just a tiny bit nerdy, these books are worth reading. After all, geeky is the new cool.


  1. I've been wanting to read these, too! They sound really good.

  2. These books are on my list--what a great conceit--geek heroines! Love it!

  3. My wife and I really think that "Queen Geeks in Love" is such a good sequal to the first book. I laugh how much the characters like Shelby remind me of the teens in our families. I think the teens are going to love this followup.
