Book Summary: 

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?

Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. (less)

Hardcover, 320 pages
Expected publication: April 4th 2017 by Quirk Books

My Review:

Elle is just like any fangirls out there. When her favorite show Starfield going to be remake, you bet she will on top of there. That was her and father favorites they used to watch together and cosplay at the conventions. Exelsicon was her dad’s life work for fandoms around the world. When he passed she never attend it again, now living her stepmother and two step sisters. When some stranger calls her dad old phone things changes for Elle a bit and start to open up more and making friends. Still living under her stepmother rules. This is a new twist of the classic fairytale, you guess it Cinderella. This modern take is a light, quick read. Really love all the fandoms that were mention in this book. You get to See Elle grow and become her father’s daughter a bit. In the meantime you get two point of views in the book. Darien is an actor  struggling also himself trying to find himself also in the acting world while being a fanboy himself. It find getting both side of the story and seeing it all come together in the end. This debut author book gonna be popular once it comes out. Was lucky to get from net gallery and review. So watch out for this book in April and Happy Reading!
