    1. THIS WAS SUPER ADORABLEI wasn t sure about it for some reason but I was pleasantly surprised I didn t know before going into it but it s a very by the book Cinderella retelling and it worked so well in a modern setting Just a quick, easy, feel good read video review to come

    2. Oh this was super cute And an excellent reason for me to stop judging covers because this waaaaay exceeded my expectations from that cover Live and learn, Cait LIVE AND LEARN It was so absolutely heartfelt, that I justI can t even It reminded me of Fangirl all squished with Kindred Spirits and Queens of Geek and I loved it NERDOM APPRECIATION FOR THE WIN.Now I assume the fandom they were cult following was like a Star Wars spin off Maybe I wouldn t have a clue, not knowing anything about Star Wa [...]

    3. So Much Fun This super cute Cinderella goes to Geeky Con story is probably closer to a 3.5 in terms of merit because I think it could have been even better view spoiler pretty much all the adults are terrible, the emotional beats could have been stronger, and a major issue with sticking so closely to your source material is that it becomes fairly predictable Its sparks back to life once Elle arrives at the Con, though hide spoiler , but it is such a cute and enjoyable read, it gets rounded up to [...]

    4. How sweet was this When I first started reading the book I wasn t so sure and then it started to get to me It was a sweet little book about a fandom, some sweet friends, and a retelling of sorts Elle lives with her jerk of a stepmother and her two daughters Elle and her father when he was alive were big fans of the show, Starfield They were geek fans together I love that But living with the horrible stepmother is not the greatest thing now that Elle s father is dead Elle works on a food truck an [...]

    5. ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.This was so surprisingly delightful, and made me so unexpectedly emotional Everyone knows the story of Cinderella, but this modern day retelling feels and was actually able to evoke quite the feelings from me This is a heartwarming story and if you consider yourself nerdy whatsoever, don t let this book pass you by I obviously feel confident saying I m a pretty geeky individual Video Games I ve been raiding for over 10 [...]

    6. THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING.Well I wasn t expecting to finish this book four hours after I started it but here we are I loved EVERYTHING about this book The nerdiness The cons The CHARACTERS Basically it took my favorite things from other Cinderella retellings and wrapped them into one, PLUS EVEN MORE.I love that it s told from dual perspective and tackles even in passing issues like fake geek girls and people not understanding how much you love something that s nerdy and your favorite thing being [...]

    7. A love letter to fandom Super cute, super corny, but all around a story for young readers to love.Some of the dialogue was super cringe, and I m not always a fan of movie star characters But it s fiction so you just have to go with it I m here for the 15 year old fangirl who would have died to read this book

    8. Buddy readwith Skam trashYou would THINK that a book with an adorably epic cover, relatable geek plot, and is a retelling of a v famous story would STEAL my heart and win me over instantly but you didn t consider this book Things this Book Got Right Girl friendship The beauty of geeking over something and blogging about it The calamity that is chores Diets Siblings who touch your stuff Geek consThings this book got WRONG Darien s insured abs Yes, you read that correctly INSURED ABS Ew Barf Texti [...]

    9. 3.5 starsWW this was cute it was SO CHEESY, tho And I didn t believe the falling in love part, but I ll explain that in my wrap up.

    10. GEEKERELLA is a charming book very reminiscent of CINDER ELLA The similarities are evident, so if you ve read that book, this one may not impress you, but still, it is a pleasant read.It s simply not my kind of read Well I did enjoy it, because it s close to impossible for me to dislike a fairytale retelling, though it s definitely not the type of book I will want to reread in the future Because I just can t believe in falling in love through the phone There are certainly a lot of things you can [...]

    11. A book steeped in fandom and set in Charleston, SC Yes, please Seriously, Ashley Poston s Geekerella has ME written all over it You ve got my parents hometown Charleston combined with a fairy tale retelling one of my fave subgenres infused with a fandom centric plot Be still my nerdy soul As fandom becomes increasingly mainstream books are being published featuring this unique culture And what s better, they re representing it WELL Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Eliza and her Monsters by Frances [...]

    12. A fun Cinderella retelling It s geeky and current I liked the twists and how the familiar elements were wittingly spun into a contemporary Cinderella story The sci fi bits and the cos play were a lot of fun although at some point, the plot kind of dragged a bit for me but it was still a generally enjoyable read.

    13. I LOVED this book soooooooooooo much I mean, I totally identified with Elle and her devotion to Starfield, the short lived TV series that spawned a generation of superfans which is exactly what happened with Star Trek, my first and still love.I jumped at the opportunity to visit a Star Trek Enterprise replica set and totally geeked out with other fans above I even attended the San Diego ComicCon a couple of years ago and snapped a quick pic with a Captain Kirk wannabe I, however, remain devoted [...]

    14. 4.50 5 stars What an adorable book this was Loved the nod to Cinderella how the author Incorporated fangirls and fandoms in it Loved it

    15. I finally got around to finishing Geekerella last night while slightly intoxicated thanks to my works Christmas party but I feel like that made the whole ending even better since I m 88% positive there were tears at some point while I shovelled chicken chow mien into my gob while trying not to get any on the pages of the book even drunk I still care about my books.This was a book to me that was relatable for the nerd inside me of me and nerdy Katherine was 100% supportive of this, I have been to [...]

    16. I expected this book to be relatable, but not on such a deep level I actually cried in one scene which yes, I know I cry a lot in books, but hardly EVER in contemporaries Plus, the entire thing is a shoutout to nerd culture and fandoms If you need something that will make you smile, this ones for you.

    17. 3.5 StarsOkay, so, this wasn t the best book I ve read It was cheesy, it was cringe worthy but it was cute I was happy for the main characters and despite the cliche story I did find myself grinning from ear to ear in some parts Full review More like bullet point thoughts basically A Cinderella Story the one with Hillary Duff that s the name right but almost EXACT weird pumpkin food truck the diner shitty step sisters and shitty step mum popular boy is secretly nerdy G A S P not it wasn t shocki [...]

    18. My feelings while reading this book can best be explained by what this guy just went through OUCH Oh gosh this was painful To start with the writing felt very stilted to me There was no easy flow It read quite awkwardly I thought The main characters in the book all had a sort of pantomime esque vibe going on that also really didn t work for me This was supposed to be a contemporary right Therefore, you d think that some realism was required And overall it was just an incredibly unimaginative ret [...]

    19. GEEKERELLA was a combination of all my favorite things anonymous messages, fairy tale retellings, and fandoms it was so fun to read and i loved everything.

    20. I have always found books about cons and fandom intriguing So of course I was going to read this asap I looooooved Elle I love that she s struggling and smart and heartbroken and finds solace in fandom There were so many relatable things here for me Darien is uncertain and struggling in his own way and the relationship between them is perfection Yes, it follows the Cinderella story, but this is entirely unique I thoroughly enjoyed how Ashley took those parts and made the story her own This was a [...]

    21. This was cute as shit, omg I never had any intention of reading this bc I thought it was just gonna be another cheesy book set at a Comic Con esque convention but this was SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT and I am sooooo glad that I read it shout out to Jaclyn for recommending this to get me out of my slump There were some moments when it was than a little cringey, but for the most part I adored everything about this ESPECIALLY the fact that there was a sneaky little surprise F F romance in here that gav [...]

    22. 3.5 stars I love Cinderella retellings and anything to do with cons general nerdy fandoms, so this was a fun retelling.Basic stuff Elle s a huge Starfield fan and isn t too sure the famous teen actor Darien Freeman is the right choice for the role of Prince Carmindor in the reboot She s super busy working in the Magic Pumpkin food truck and trying to deal with her demanding stepmother stepsisters Darien accidentally texts Elle during his preparation for ExcelsiCon and the two keep texting withou [...]

    23. This book was so good I didn t have high expectations going in but I loved it It was full of geeky fandom references It covered a wide range of geekiness from cosplays to cons to fan fiction to fangirls themselves I also really liked the dual point of view because when it comes to YA romance I always want to know what the guy is thinking The retelling aspect of this was also spot on The author translated the Cinderella story to nerd culture perfectly.Lastly, the supporting characters were amazin [...]

    24. 3.5 5 starsThis book is a modern day retelling of Cinderella, with geeky seventeen year old Elle Wittimer feeling like she doesn t belong anywhere but in the Starfield universe When her beloved TV show, the last link to her father, is announced to be rebooted into a movie, she s beyond disappointed to hear soap opera star Darien Freeman will be playing Carmindor Darien Freeman has been a closet Starfield fan his entire life, with it always being his dream to be cast his hero But every true Starf [...]

    25. Look to the stars Aim Ignite OH guys, what a sweet reading.I love when these things happen to me, I felt that I would love this book and it was so , YAY 5 5 StarsYou can find this one and reviews on my blog A Book A Thought.This is a Cinderella re telling , which is my favorite fairy tale, so I was very excited about it, but when I heard it was about a girl who was into a fandom of a sci fi series, then I thought Doctor Who immediately and I knew that it would make me remember to it, so I was e [...]

    26. This was the best contemporary, cutest romance, and most adorable thing I read in 2017 It was absolutely perfect The geekiness and cuteness and just everything IT WAS INCREDIBLE The fangirling was so relatable Elle was so relatable It was brilliant And the fandom references They were everywhere and they were perfect Doctor Who and Star Wars were my faves, but all of them were brilliant Maybe I ll reread this later after joining fandoms and pick up on even of them I honestly am so keen to rerea [...]

    27. My dad said that the impossible is only impossible if you don t even try So I want to try Geekerella is one of those books that what you see is what you get It gives you exactly what it markets itself to be a sweet and heart warming teen romance.WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THIS BOOK Cinderella retelling I mean, just look at the title a relatable female protagonist she s a fangirl and a total nerd too plus she has real people problems a little love hate relationships annoying step sisters unexpectedly li [...]

    28. Geekerella was every bit as geeky and fun as I hoped it would be It feels like Cinder Ella, except you don t get your heart torn out of your chest Although sometimes it felt a bit too stereotypical both the two protagonists as well as the storyline I had a good few hours reading it.Built around a fandom about the science fiction show Starfield, this book is the perfect base for geeky readers There are plenty of references to Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, and other fanbases for you to get your ki [...]
