So recently I have been reading something a little different. I thought I would try my hand at a little normality. I needed something a little more real world before I threw myself into my fae worlds or something a little darker.
Geekerella. As you can tell by the name, this is a retelling of Cinderella but with a Geeky take. I love Cinderella and I’m a geek so whats not to like.
Summery: When geek girl Elle Wittimer sees a cosplay contest sponsored by the producers of Starfield, she has to enter. First prize is an invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. Elle’s been scraping together tips from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck behind her stepmother’s back, and winning this contest could be her ticket out once and for all—not to mention a fangirl’s dream come true.
Teen actor Darien Freeman is less than thrilled about this year’s ExcelsiCon. He used to live for conventions, but now they’re nothing but jaw-aching photo sessions and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Federation Prince Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the diehard Starfield fandom has already dismissed him as just another heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, closet nerd Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.
I have to say… I loved this book. Ashley Poston has done so well with this. This is not some cheesy retake on and lovely fairy tale. This is almost a new story. It’s not until the end of the book at you start to get the Cinderella feel from this, and even then that is only in one or two chapters. I love the feel of this story, it gives off a very good vibe and seems to let you into the life of Con.
I can only thank Ashley Poston for creating this book. For creating this little world. I also like the relationships between Elle and her step sisters. Though one is a nasty little what name, the other is just what she needed.
For this I can only give it the best 5 stars
