Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathesStarfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watchingwith her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a newStarfieldmovie, she has toenter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet withthe actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from hergig 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 nothingbut autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he's ever wanted, butthe Starfieldfandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon drawsnear, Darien feels more and more like a fake-until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy talefor anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.… (mais)

What I love about Cinderella stories is the moment when the girl who’s just Trying Her Best finally gets everything she wants and deserves, in spite of the people trying to hold her back, and finally has someone in her life who actually sees her and values her and supports her — it’s so satisfying!

Anyways.

Elle is a certified fangirl for the sci-fi series Starfield. Her parents met because of their love for the show, her father started the ExcelsiCon fan convention, and Elle herself has been writing fanfiction since childhood. Now that her parents are gone, Starfield is her way of keeping their memory close. So she is not thrilled when teen-heartthrob soap-opera-star Darien Freeman is cast for the leading role in the new movie reboot.

Darien, closet nerd and Starfield fan, took the role because it means something to him — but the passionate fandom seems to hate him, especially one blogger in particular. When he develops an anonymous text friendship with a Starfield fan, he feels like he can finally just be himself. Everything culminates at ExcelsiCon where Darien will be judging the cosplay competition and Elle will be competing.

It hits all the classic Cinderella tropes mixed with a love letter to fandom culture and why it’s so meaningful. Good fun! ( )

I received this book free from the publisher via netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

*WARNING* May contain some mild spoilers!

This one took me a while to get into. I almost decided to give up on it, only my love of all of her other books kept me going, and honestly, it was worth it. The story was good. After you start to get into it a bit it just gets better and better.

So my character break down. Darien I like but he's a little too insecure. Elle is actually a pretty strong character considering the crap she puts up with from her family. Sage is my favorite character. At first, I thought she was just another reason Elle would be put down, but she ended up being so awesome and it just got better and better. Chloe is awful for obvious reasons and I would say Cal was too but she redeemed herself in the end. Catherine is just such a piece of garbage. A horrible excuse for a human being and I'm not sure Mark is much better.

I'll be continuing with the series. Mostly in the hope that the other books don't take as long to get into as this one did. ( )

Cheesy as only fanfic can be

The characters were super fun and the references across universe and feelings was really well done.
Thank you for making all the fangirls and fanboys out here smile as we "Look to the stars. Aim. Ignite." ( )
