What is Sarvenaz Tash reading?

Featured at Writers Read: Sarvenaz Tash, author of The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love.

Her entry begins:
I just finished Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff which so lived up to all the hype. It was probably the most insanely creative book I've ever read: so layered with plot and characterization and structure; and so beautifully presented. (This book 100% begs to be read in print, by the way)....[read on]
About The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love, from the publisher:
John Hughes meets Comic Con in this hilarious, unabashedly romantic, coming-of-age novel about a teenager who is trying to get his best friend to fall in love with him from the author of Three Day Summer.

Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy...
Archie and Veronica...
Althena and Noth...
...Graham and Roxy?

Graham met his best friend, Roxana, when he moved into her neighborhood eight years ago, and she asked him which Hogwarts house he’d be sorted into. Graham has been in love with her ever since.

But now they’re sixteen, still neighbors, still best friends. And Graham and Roxy share more than ever—moving on from their Harry Potter obsession to a serious love of comic books.

When Graham learns that the creator of their favorite comic, The Chronicles of Althena, is making a rare appearance at this year’s New York Comic Con, he knows he must score tickets. And the event inspires Graham to come up with the perfect plan to tell Roxy how he really feels about her. He’s got three days to woo his best friend at the coolest, kookiest con full of superheroes and supervillains. But no one at a comic book convention is who they appear to be...even Roxy. And Graham is starting to realize fictional love stories are way less complicated than real-life ones.
