Personal Opinion/Review #9: Geekerella By Ashley Poston


I have heard soooo much about this book, both through blog reviews and booktube, and none of this has been negative. There was also the fact that this was a retelling, which was a mega win!!! Have I mentioned that I love retellings?

Goodreads Synopsis:

Anything can happen once upon a con…

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. 

This was an amazing story, I loved the characters personalities and the flow of the story. I read this book in 4 days which is actually pretty fast for me, as I don’t get a lot of reading time lately. The writing style was addicting leaving the end of every chapter with a hanger of sorts leaving you wanting more more more. The only down fall I found of this book is that I would have liked to have seen more of a ending to the plot of the stepmother and step-sisters, as the ending of the story does revolve greatly the love story relationship.

Rating: 4.5/5
