5 Geeky Starfield Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Synopsis

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-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.

Review

This book was just SO adorable!

I am not a super fan of anything or part of any type of fandom…. especially not anything involving the word star…. but that did not matter at all this book was a lot of fun…. a very well done retelling of Cinderella with a modern twist…right down to the pumpkin food truck….

Elle was such a fabulously likable character…. even though she and my teenage self had very little in common I still found her so Real and relatable…. Darien, well what’s not to like…. a super hot movie star with abs of steel and a heart of gold…. although my favorite character has to be Sage she was the most unlikely perfect ferry godmother….

I would strongly recommend this book to everybody who believes in happily ever after…. when you’re in the mood for a fun fluffy fairytale with a side of nerd….

🎧🎧🎧 Narration: was very well done by both narrators, however there were a few mishaps with the editing… some lines repeated enough that I noticed and I am not necessarily one to notice those things….

You just have to geek out a little,

Berit

  1. I read the ARC for this and loved it too! There was not much hype for it at the time of release but it really picked up afterwards because readers genuinely loved it. I appreciate books so much more when that happens rather than succeeding because of hype before its release. 🙂
