    One thought on “All That Glitters”

    1. 5 Words: High-school, friends, fame, family, stars.This is probably the least hilarious and most heart-breaking of these books.Something in this one in particular just resonated with me, and I wanted to cry because I recognised my own past in these pages. Just without the modelling. Because high-school sucked.I miss Lion Boy.

    2. It isn't very often that I find myself lost for words which probably not one of my best qualities, if you know me in real life. I'm a bit of a rambler when I get nervous, or when I'm excited, or well, practically all the time. And that's why I am so shocked that I just cannot find the words to describe how incredible this book entire series is. I said it last time, but I feel like I need to say it again: Harriet Manners is an incredibly realistic, relatable, lovable, adorable, adorkable, sweet p [...]

    3. Of course I absolutely adored this book just like the rest of the series so far . I am really impressed. Also Harriet really annoyed me in this, why would she be friends with people that made her life a misery for 11 years ?. Why couldn’t see just understand that these people were only up her arse because she is a model .

    4. Though this was not my favourite Geek Girl book (that title still goes to Picture Perfect), I absolutely loved it!The events of All That Glitters follow those of Picture Perfect, meaning we have both a happy and a sad Harriet. The happiness, and somewhat nervousness, she felt towards starting sixth form was wholly relatable, as I had felt exactly the same nearly four years ago when I was in the same position. We see Harriet attempting, and succeeding, to some extent, in making new friends, thoug [...]

    5. How is this series going to continue for 2 more books? My 3 star rating is mostly based on nostalgia and I like the author as a person but come on, how many books can you write with more or less the same plot, the same mistakes and the same endings?

    6. I have decided on rating this one a 2 star in the end. I was thoroughly bored before halfway of this book and I hated the book after the halfway mark.Mostly the problem was Harriet. Her antics and how she acts are funny/annoying in book one, haha/annoying in book two, so-so/annoying at book 3, and by book 4 I wasn't laughing because of her antics. I was more annoyed with her and wondered about her parents and how they raised her. There is a fine line (for me) between social awkward and just bein [...]

    7. ligt het aan mij, of wordt deze serie maar beter en beter? ik heb harder gelachen en harder gehuild. die Harriet. love her.

    8. Why Holly Smale? Why do keep making Harriet such a dumb girl? (view spoiler)[and why did you take Nick away from us? (hide spoiler)]So this was a nice book, in the same tone as the ones before it; it's a great fun read I truly recommend this if you want to relax and get into something light and fast pace. Clearly this is not a favorite, I do believe that the second book is the best one in the series but I enjoy this one.I wont deny that the Nick part was hard given that one of the main reasons I [...]

    9. Originally at Heart Full Of BooksThe fourth book in the Geek Girl series maintained the same level of humour and fun that the other three books in the series uphold! ‘All That Glitters’ took Harriet on a new adventure: being a Sixth Form student! (Such a nice change from the plethora of secondary school settings out there!)Harriet’s venture into sixth form shouldn’t dissuade a younger reader from continuing the series – she’s still the same geeky, bubbly girl she was in secondary. Al [...]

    10. TOO MANY SPOILERS. I was so excited when this book came out since the last book ended with Harriet and Nick splitting up. But I just didn't think this book was up to par. It definitely wasn't as funny as 1 and 2 or 3. I was bored by the story line as it was the same as all the other books where Harriet thought she was being annihilated but then it turns out her friends were just not speaking to her for her own good. You don't actually realise how immature Harriet is in comparison to her age. SHE [...]

    11. I've loved the Geek Girl series since reading the first book. Even though I'm really not in the target audience, I have been a teenage girl myself, so it works for me on that level - obviously I've never been a supermodel, and neither have I ever been quite as, hmm, extreme as Harriet, but quite honestly, there are things about her that make me recognise myself in her.I think that's both part of why I like her, and why I keep wincing while reading about her trials and tribulations.Anyway - All T [...]

    12. **Possible spoilers from the first three books**As soon as I finished Picture Perfect I started All that Glitters straight away. How could I not? With that ending I needed to read more but was it me or was this one just not as good as the other books? I’m still rating it 4 stars though because I still love Harriet but I just didn’t enjoy the plot of this story as much. It might be the fact that I’m still trying to deal with the fact that Harriet and Lion Boy are no more. I’m absolutely d [...]

    13. I wish this series was a stand-alone instead because I feel like every new book that comes out is pretty much like the last one. Harriett doesn't seem quirky anymore -- she's just plain annoying, as all the characters honestly.

    14. 2.75 stars! This decreased in rating from its predecessors because I feel like the author should have just stopped at this book and given us the nice happy ending I'm sure we're going to get in book 6.At this point, the characters feel overdone, the modelling opportunities repetitive, the plot predictable and the author has even been recycling her "fun facts" which is the whole premise of this series! Also, the nuances and dynamics between certain characters seemed so futile in this book; Nathal [...]

    15. I really enjoyed the first three books in this series so when I received the email from NetGalley saying it was available I was ecstatic! I think Harriet Manners is an extremely relatable character. I'm pretty sure most teenage girls aren't as clever as Harriet but I'm also pretty sure that most teenage girls have received that look of disgust from other teenage girls and have been taunted just because they're good at something. Harriet is an excellent role model figure for young girls who are c [...]

    16. Although Nick was missed in this chapter, this was my favourite from the series; so far. Harriet is still naive but I guess I'd chalk that up to her always seeing the best in people. That being said, Harriet did a ton of growing in this book. She's still quirky and geeky but also turning into a young women. And I cannot wait to see where her antics and modeling go from here.

    17. To see review with gif click here.f we’re going to be honest about it, this series has gotten a bit pedantic (which seems to be the word of the week, FYI). The good thing is if you’re reading it with its publication schedule you’re not going to notice as much the repetition. The bad thing is if you’re an American who has gotten tired of waiting for these things to be released in the states and decided to just buy them at the Book Depository you’re not exactly going to binge on them as [...]

    18. Growing up is hard. It’s even harder when you just don’t fit into the crowd. I love Harriet because she reminds me of me in so many ways and she just experiences things that I did. It’s like going back to 2006 and being in my final year of high school - yikes. What those kids did to her was just brutal, yet not unexpected. It’s sad that there’s a reality to it. Always has been. Hey - she did get two new friends out of the deal. One whom saw her for who she was, despite having a less th [...]

    19. All That Glitters Review on K-Books -> Goes live March 2, 2015Please Note: Possible spoilers from the previous books in the series.Harriet Manners is back with more hilarious antics from her Geeky and Modelling world and I could not have been more excited. Geek Girl is fast becoming one of my favourite series so you can imagine my excitement when I saw this come up in my auto-approved Netgalley feed. I absolutely adore this series. I know this series is not for everyone but I for one adore it [...]

    20. Before I can even start talking about the book, I was really contemplating wether to give it 3 or 4 stars. Let's just begin with the good things about the book. 1) There was a really well transition from book 3 (Picture Perfect) to book 4, giving me an easy loop back into the main character's life. As soon as I was 10 pages into the book, I remembered just where I had left off and what had happened to the character since the last book. 2) I think this was the one book out of all four that really [...]

    21. Originally posted on BookWorm."If people are kind to you, Harriet, it's because you're kind to them. If people are there for you, it's because you are there for them."Oh, I am sobbing like a baby. I did not expect this. Excuse me while I take a moment to compose myself *deep breaths*. Not gonna lie, I did not expect this to hurt quite this much.I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but if you read Geek Girl #3, you know that the ending was absolutely heart-reanding. It hurt. So for some reason, I [...]

    22. i've decided that these books are hella long, for nothing.This book could've been a 250 pages, but nope the author writes a lot of non interesting facts, to me they are not necessary to the story.Anyways the books are light and dramatic, so yeah.The characters are cool,and Harriet is annoying sometimes but she learns from her mistakes.

    23. OH, HARRIET. I LOVE HER SO MUCH. AND I LOVE TOBY AND NAT AND THE NEW CHARACTERS AND THIS BOOK MADE ME SO HAPPY BUT I'M ALSO CRYING AND AH, I LOVED IT SO MUCH.

    24. Oh, Jeez. If ever there was a need for a giant box of tissues then this is the time.I guess All That Glitters was expected. What I mean is, Harriet's spent a year modelling in Russia, Japan, New York. Sooner or later her face is going to be on billboards and perfume advert campaigns. Flyers. posters, youtube, and leaflets. Yes, Harriet is the face of a perfume campaign and she's everywhere. And now all her classmates see her as a model too.Harriet is very clever but she's not very savvy. Her soc [...]

    25. I think it's my favorite in the series so far! Harriett learns a lot in this one! I love this series so much!!!
