Monday Reviews: Follow Me Back and Queens of Geek

Our August Top Ten Tuesday had me wanting to read more fan reading/fan fiction-writing type books. Here are two 2017 contemporary fanfic type books I picked up last week.

The first one is Follow Me Back by A.V. Geiger. It is a lighthearted story about an agoraphobia girl, Tessa, who writes and tweets all things Eric Thorn. The pop sensational singer has enough of these obsessed fangirling fantasies and wants nothing more than to hide and write music. When he learns about Tessa's #ericthornobsessed tweets ranking number one on Twitter, he decides to confront her and make her stop writing fanfics about him. The story takes a funny turn and will completely take you by surprise. Rough intro but great hook at the end. Delightful read.

The second one is Queens of Geek by Jen WildeThree best friends takes a trip from Australia to America to attend the biggest nerd convention SupaCon. Charlie is a rising youtube star turned actress and is there at the con to promote her new indie zombie film. The other two friends Taylor and Jamie, have a blast cosplaying from their favorite fantasy franchise Queen Firestone. The story has me reminiscing my time at various cons myself and the intensity and buildup of fan culture. Love the movie and nerd references. Warm and fuzzy reading.
