My Review:
**I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**

I Heart Geeks is a fun anthology of short stories that are all about geeks. Nerds. Girls and guys who like to obsess over superheroes, games, Joss Whedon, etc. A perfect collection of stories for any fangirl (or boy) to read through.

Most of the stories are short, and a lot of them read like fan fiction, which is ok with me, 'cause I love fan fiction. I read it and write it. And that's not a bad thing. These stories are actually quite good, and while reading most of them, I felt like I was geeking out right there with the main character(s). So fun!

Most of the stories do take place at conventions, but there were a couple that did not. The only "geek" elements they had were character's likes and/or names of animals/pets in the stories. But they're still special and romantic and geeky in their own way. I love it!

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because there were some editing errors I noticed, and they did detract a little from my overall enjoyment of the beautiful nerdiness each story was filled with. But, other than that, I enjoyed the stories more than I even expected to.

I highly recommend I Heart Geeks to all the fangirls and boys who love superheroes, gaming, TV shows like Supernatural or Doctor Who, Joss Whedon, and short, sweet romance stories in general. 4 stars!
