Harriet Manners knows almost every fact there is.

She knows duck-billed platypuses don’t have stomachs. 
She knows that fourteen squirrels were once detained as spies. 
She knows that both chess and snakes and ladders were invented in the same country.

And for once, Harriet knows exactly how her life should go.She’s got it ALL planned out. So her friends seem less than happy, Harriet is determined to Make Things Happen! If only everyone else would stick to the script…

But is following the rules going to break hearts for GEEK GIRL?

Head Over Heels was another fantastic installment in the Geek Girl series. Ever since I read the first book back in 2013, it became one of my favourite series and I'm always dying to get my hand son the next book to see what Harriet is up to next!

Oh how I adore Harriet! She's so funny and awkward, and she just makes these books so easy to read and love. Again, I loved her constantly spouting facts and just being her general geeky self. She just makes these books so funny and I adore her.

Harriet is a serial planner, and she decides to take it into her own hands to plan all of the meetings with her friends. She has everything mapped out and tries to make all of her friends follow her plans, but her friends are less than happy with her. Also, Harriet finally does something unselfish for once! Go Harriet! Wilbur is in a bad place and Harriet does whatever she can to help him out.

Harriet is still getting over 'Lion Boy' - who I was hoping would appear - but there's also a new relationship brewing that Harriet can't see. She was so oblivious and it was so obvious to the reader and I just wanted her to figure it out!

I adore all of Harriet's friends, and I loved that Rin made an appearance in this one too! She was brilliant in Model Misfit, so I loved getting to see more of them together.

I need the sixth book like now! Harriet is going to have an amazing time in Australia, and I'm anticipating a Nick appearance? Yes? GIVE IT TO ME NOW.

  1. Nick will be there for sure. Especially since it's the last book.
    But I will admit that I really like her new relationship. Nick was a great first boyfriend but he never called her out on her shit. Like being unintentionally selfish. But new guy does. I think he's better for her in the end. But I do love both and Harriet!
