Author: Becky Jerams
Book: Reasons to Love a Nerd Like Me
Release Date: October 12, 2015
Length: 508 Pages


Scotty Williams is the nerdiest 17-year-old at UK-based Havensdale College - and proud of it. However being a nerd can have its downsides, particularly when you're constantly being targeted by the school bully Taylor Raven and his cronies. As Scotty tries to navigate his final college years with the aid of his best friend Olive, he also finds himself on the radar of the mysterious and intimidating Vincent Hunter, toughest guy in the Sixth Form. Is Vincent really as bad as he seems? Will Scotty's darkest secret ever be revealed? Can he ever just finish his last few college years in peace? But most importantly... will any guy ever find the reasons to love a nerd like him?


Oh Scotty! I must have muttered those words about a billion times while reading this. Here we have a brilliant, adorable, nerdy guy who is just trying to survive college. Of course, while trying to survive he is surrounded by so much drama. Almost ridiculous in the amount he manages to get himself into.

I don’t want to give the story away but I can tell you this. If Scotty didn’t lie so much he could have saved himself a lot of pain. I get it, I do. He lied to spare others; but in the end a lie is still a lie and when it’s uncovered all you thought you were protecting turns on you.

This is a very very long story and I do love a long tale. Especially Scotty’s. I was never bored. You couldn’t possibly BE bored with how much of a mess he gets himself into.

My heart broke for Tyler many times. He was brutally honest with Scotty. He was vulnerable and I wanted to swoop him up and take him away.

The ending of this book does make all the insanity worth it and there’s a HUGE lesson in this YA story.

I’d say absolutely give it a read.

  1. I can't think of any bad lies. I am a very truthful person but maybe a white lie or two. Especially if it's going to hurt your feelings. You know like "No those jeans don't make your butt look big"!

  2. I can't remember any really bad lies I've told. I do tell white lies sometimes to make sure that someone is hurt by my answer.

  3. I accidentally broke my flat's mate iron when whe were at college. She had a really bad temper, so I wasn't able to tell it to her (in fact, I denied it when she asked). The problem was she almost burnt the house down when she tried to use it again. I'm still ashamed nowadays....
