Earlier this year, I read a book. I know, so unlike me (!). It is called GEEK GIRL, and it was written by Holly Smale. Basically, this book is super cool and by far one of the best UKYA contemporary YA novels I have ever read. Rlly. If you want to see me proper gushing about it, you can go he-yah (review to come on the blog tomorrow, sorry, I have an exam this morning!).
Anyway, I jumped at the chance to be on the blog tour for GEEK GIRL because of all my gushing and stuff, (geek girls repreSENT) and I managed to snap up a playlist for the book from the lovely author. Music and books? What more could you even WANT in a blog??
2. Shuffle // Bombay Bicycle Club
3. Falling Without Knowing // Tilly and the Wall Whatever happens now that I've changed
No one will ever stand in our way
4. Anthems For A Seventeen Year Old Girl // Broken Social Scene
5. Landfill // Daughter
6. Chalk Stars // Animal Kingdom Woke up
and my heart was,
7. Focus on the Rollercoaster // Mice Parade
8. Here It Goes Again // OK Go
9. Fotzepolitic // Cocteau Twins My dreams are all basic and must be addressed
They're young girls dreams
10. Huddle Formation // The Go! Team
11. Soeglopur // Sigur Ros
I suggest you listen to all of these songs on this handy playlist on YouTube while you read the book. They are rlly cool. Especially Fireflies, and Chalk Stars. Thanks so much, Holly!
