Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic science-fiction 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 has 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-love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a
fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston is a fun and endearing contemporary
Cinderella retelling that will appeal to every sci-fi geek and fangirl
at heart. Expect to be catapulted into an adorable romance that is
guaranteed to make you smile from beginning to end.
year old Danielle “Elle” Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the
science-fiction show she grew up watching with her late father. Elle has
spent many-a late nights watching Starfield reruns and writing about
the show on her blog. When Elle learns of a cosplay contest being held
for the new Starfield movie with the winner scoring exclusive tickets to
the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet and greet with the reboots star,
the man playing Elle’s idol from the show, Federation Prince Carmindor,
she knows she just has to enter. Seeing her favourite show remade is a
dream come true, even if the guy playing Carmindor is someone Elle
doesn’t like. Being cast as the lead in the new Starfield movie is all
Darien Freeman has ever wanted. He grew up attending cons and obsessing
over the show and even though he is now a rising star, Darien is still
very much a geek at heart. Too bad none of the critics see him as
anything other than a pretty face. Struggling more and more Darien is
sure he’s about to crash and burn until a moment of chance sees him in
contact with a girl who makes him feel normal for the first time in a
long time. Darien and Elle may be worlds apart, but as they bond over
their shared love of the Starfield fandom, will they find the strength
to stand up for what they want, even if it means making tough decisions?
If you’re looking for something fun and quirky then
Geekerella is the book for you! As someone such as myself who loves
sci-fi and her comic-cons, this novel was a tale after my own heart.
Simply put, Geekerella was just adorable. Unfolding in the back and
forth POV’s of both main characters, Geekerella was a really laid back,
easy read that was full of fun dialogue, entertaining moments and sweet
friendships and romance. It featured a cute as pie storyline that while
being totally predictable was also highly addictive.
readers to two hilarious and likable characters in the form of Elle and
Darien. It’s honestly impossible not to adore and vie for both Elle and
Darien as you read the story. Elle was a very down to earth main
character who encompassed many characteristics that made her seem like
someone you could easily call a friend, while Darien was endearingly
hopeless. He may be a rising star with a great body, but he was a geek
at heart with a hapless nature and a kind soul.
my favourite parts about Geekerella was of course the relationship
between Elle and Darien. Their romance is a large part of this novel
however it’s not necessarily about the physical aspect that will win
your heart. As they correspond over various smile inducting text
messages, Elle and Darien bond over their shared love of Starfield and
slowly begin to care deeply about each other. It was exciting seeing
them interact in person yet have no idea who the other is, only to
eventually discover it as we all waited with bated breath.
a smart and enjoyable read, Geekerella is downright adorable at times
and endearing throughout. I’m definitely impressed with this first novel
I have read by Ashley Poston and will keep an eye out for whatever she
