The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Handbook for Girl Geeks by Sam Maggs &, Kelly Bastow



Fanfic, cosplay, cons, books, memes, podcasts, vlogs, OTPs and RPGs and MMOs and more—it’s never been a better time to be a girl geek. The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is the ultimate handbook for ladies living the nerdy life, a fun and feminist take on the often male-dominated world of geekdom. With delightful illustrations and an unabashed love for all the in(ternet)s and outs of geek culture, this book is packed with tips, playthroughs, and cheat codes for everything from starting an online fan community to planning a convention visit to supporting fellow female geeks in the wild.

My Thoughts:

This book is super cute.  Who needs a guide based on out actual lives? Apparently me. LOL. I loved this book though. It talks about all the things we fangirls like to squee over including fanfic, cosplay, and conventions. It addresses all sorts of fandoms, which is super fun.  I love all the references for websites, that I had to go check out after reading the book.  The book is very cute, like I said, but I think it is more geared to tweens and young teens, who are not confident in their geekery yet, or for parents of young geeks who don’t know the internet lingo their kids are slinging. LOL
