The Geek’s Guide to Unrequited Love by Sarvenaz Tash
Review: I kind of fell in love with this book as soon as I heard about it..
Because as some of you might know I’m pretty much a big nerdy geek. Loving almost too many fandoms and shipping anything.
I read this book in just about two hours, because no matter how many times I told myself to slow down or save some for later. I would get to another chapter and the chapter titles do nothing to stop you from taking a break.
In all honesty say that this was a very true description of Comicon and of all things fandom. There were many times I was laughing my butt off and nodding my head with the characters ( in feeling their pain about things at con). I felt like I was back at home while reading Graham’s point of view. I felt so bad for him at times in the book, but I did fall a little in love with him at the same time, he was just so sweet and geeky.
5 out of 5 stars.

Summary: John Hughes meets Comic Con in this hilarious, unabashedly romantic, coming-of-age novel about a teenager who is trying to get his best friend to fall in love with him from the author of Three Day Summer.
Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy…
Archie and Veronica…
Althena and Noth…
…Graham and Roxy?
Graham met his best friend, Roxana, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago, and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since.
But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.
When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year’s New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He’s got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be…even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones.
