“The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading” by Charity Tahmaseb & Darcy Vance

What a fun book! I loved the Pride and Prejudice references, seeing how my new favorite movie is Pride and Prejudice. This is a young adult book but was so fun for me to read and I couldn’t help but get drawn in and my husband often commented on me smiling while reading it. It was a quick read, and to be honest I couldn’t put it down!

The book description from

When Bethany — self-proclaimed geek girl — makes the varsity cheerleading squad, she realizes that there’s one thing worse than blending in with the lockers: getting noticed. She always felt comfortable as part of the nerd herd, but being a member of the most scrutinized group in her school is weighing her down like a ton of textbooks. Even her Varsity Cheerleading Guide can’t answer the really tough questions, like: How do you maintain some semblance of dignity while wearing an insanely short skirt? What do you do when the head cheerleader spills her beer on you at your first in-crowd party? And how do you know if your crush likes you for your mind…or your pom-poms?

One thing’s for sure: It’s going to take more than brains for this girl genius to cheer her way to the top of the pyramid.



  1. I find that I enjoy reading young adult books most of the time. I like the adult ones too, but there is something about the way young adult books are written that keeps me hooked.

  2. You are so right Liz. I love reading young adult books. And generally I prefer them over “adult” books. I can’t quite put my finger on why I always come back to them. Perhaps because they take me back to being a child, or that the stories can be so fantastical yet real. They are fun.
