For the first episode of Geek Girl Reviews, Amanda & Monika talk about the book they wished they read when they were younger:
Sam Maggs' book "The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks" might become your holy grail of girl geekdom if you ever wanted to find out more about Fangirls and eventually want to become one.
Sam Maggs - who you can find on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook - is a Canadian expat writer living in Los Angeles who shows the reader in a fun, quirky and loveable way what it is to be a fangirl (CAN WE BE FRIENDS?), how to find geek friends and bring existing friends to the geeky dark-side, and all the things you need to know when you visit a Convention for the very first time (and all the other times after that).
Not only does she give insights why Geek Girls rock, the book helps who feel a little bit like misfits amongst others, and helps them own their true selves.
While there might not be a lot of new things for the hardcore-geeky hosts, they would recommend the book to everyone who isn't that knee deep into nerdism, or everyone who wants to find out more about the female identifying geeks in the world (AND WE ARE MANYYYY).
