 **I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review**

I saw this title on Erin (BookNut)'s Quirk Book giveaway and I just knew I had to get my hands on a copy. I mean the cover is gorgeous! I love video games and briefly glancing at this, I'm picturing my all time favorite 8 bits including Burger Chef from the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Super Mario Advanced 4 from the Super Mario Bros 3 Gameboy Color. I was extremely honored when I received an autographed copy from the publisher.   And I am happy to say, this book does not disappoint.

The Geek's Guide to Dating by Eric Smith is exactly what it says...its a guide...made for geeks...on dating. Going into this I thought it was a work of fiction intended for geeks with witty banter and useful tips that could actually work in real world situations. But I was completely wrong. This is a quick 200 page book filled with "yes" and "no" tips on dating. Real world examples are explained with video game characters and scenarios. This isnt a work of fiction, its more of a self help guide intended toward males but insightful to females. I would love to see a female version of this. Turn it into a sequel and have it in a females perspective. But Overall, this book is great and I highly recommend to geek lovers all around.

  1. I've read quite a few but I really like the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies series, also the Miss Peregrine's duo.

  2. Lola was pretty quirky
    Ink. . . could that be considered quirky?
    That's about all I got, haha. Thanks

  3. I don't have a favorite. I haven't read any quirky books.
