Geekerella by Ashley Poston book review

cover97349-medium

Synopsis

Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?

Review

“Look to the stars. Aim. Ignite”. This has to be my favorite book thus far of 2017! This modern day take on Cinderella was just what i needed to pull me out of my book slump. Ashley is an amazing writer and I can see her quickly rising to the top 10 list. Geekerella was so fun for me as I am that fan girl, convention nerd, and misunderstood girl! She wrote a fun story told in alternating perspectives. The supporting cast was well written and make you love/hate them. You will find yourself rooting for Elle, as she endures an evil step mother ans evil step sisters all while trying to find her place in life and come to accept her fathers passing and that she really is her fathers child. Darien makes you wish you could just jump through the book and scream at all the people taking advantage of his stardom. I believe this book will quickly rise up in the book tube community, so i suggest everyone read it. This book was super, super cute and i loved every page of it! Thank you Quirk Books and Netgalley for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review! 5 stars from me!
