Geekerella - A Fangirl Fairy Tale

A Novel

(1)
Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale.
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. 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 the 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.

Heartwarming Cinderella retelling
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 03.04.2017

“Look to the stars. Aim. Ignite.” Two words: Totally adorable. This is a fluffy and light retelling of Cinderella and I freaking adored it!

This is a fluffy and light retelling of Cinderella and I freaking adored it! Elle Wittimer is such a relatable geek, I liked her immediately. Her favorite fandom is Starfield which appears to be a mix of Star Trek and Star Wars. She also has an own blog where she talks abouts Starfield. It is multiple times mentioned that she writes fanfiction and I would have loved to see more of that, maybe even an excerpt of one of her stories. I also liked that Elle's stepsisters were not only the bad and mean guys (well, one of them at least) but I would have preferred that her stepmom had more background and depth, she was too one-dimensional for me. Elle's co-worker and friend Sage was definitely my favourite character in this book, she had a sick sassy attitude which was awesome. Darien was a likeable guy but I couldn't fully connect with him throughout the book. This book does have insta-love in it, though a not too strong one but it was to be expected, so I did not mind it very much. All in all, a loveable and heartwarming Cinderella retelling.
