(BOOK) Geektastic - Various Authors
Acclaimed authors Holly Black (Ironside) and Cecil Castellucci (Boy Proof) have united in geekdom to edit short stories from some of the best selling and most promising geeks in young adult literature: M.T. Anderson, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, John Green, Tracy Lynn, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Barry Lyga, Wendy Mass, Garth Nix, Scott Westerfield, Lisa Yee, and Sara Zarr. With illustrated interstitials from comic book artists Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O'Malley, Geektastic covers all things geeky, from Klingons and Jedi Knights to fan fiction, theater geeks, and cosplayers. Whether you're a former, current, or future geek, or if you just want to get in touch with your inner geek, Geektastic will help you get your geek on!

A lot of my favourite authors contributed to this book (John Green, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, David Levithan, Holly Black) so of course I figured I would love it! Not so. Let me tell you, I was going to buy this from a bookstore but then just checked it out from the library (thank god because it would have been a waste of money). Anyhow I didn't read it straight from cover to cover, I skipped through and read one disappointing story after another. To be honest, the only story in here I really liked was 'I Never' by Cassandra Clare, other than that it was a waste of time to me.
