Geekerella

Geekerella

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.

Jag gillade den här boken som är en retelling på Askungen. Den handlar om Elle och Darien. En riktigt mysig bok att läsa och det var kul att se utvecklingen av ena styvsystern Cal som skiljer sig lite från Askungens styvsystrar. En modern askungesaga som hyllar det nördiga, vad mer kan man begära? Det är dessutom lite hate to love mellan Elle och Darien, vilket inte är helt fel. Jag tycker att boken delvis påminner om filmen A Cinderella Story med Hilary Duff, så om du gillade den filmen så kommer du att gilla den här boken.
