Fun, amusing, and geeky in the best way possible. In a unique take on the classic tale of Cinderella, Ashley Poston gives us all a modern day reimagining filled with humor, heart, and all the cosplay one could possibly want. Her writing effortlessly incorporates modern culture all the while staying true to the the original fairy tale. With positively delightful, sarcastic, and charming characters, there is no way that you will not enjoy this book.


If you are looking a book to celebrate your ability to completely fangirl (or fanboy) out, this is the book for you. I loved every page and cannot wait to revisit it again.

Reviewer Disclaimer: I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


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.
