Hey guys! Today, in my conclusion of my retelling review series, I will be reviewing Geekerella by Ashley Poston
Release date: March 7, 2017
Hardcover page count: 320
My rating: 5/5 stars
Geekerella tells the story of Elle, a young fangirl who’s obsessed with Starfield, a Star Trek like show filled with romance and adventure. Although she doesn’t like the choice for the main actor in the reboot, she still hopes to win ExcelsiCon’s costume contest so she can meet him… get the tickets to L.A so she can finally get away from her stepmother and step sisters. Meanwhile, Darien is the new main actor for Starfield, and while it is his dream role; he is written off as just a teenage heartthrob with no respect for the fandom. Now having to go judge a costume contest at ExcelsiCon, the place he used to love before he was famous, he begins to feel more like a fake, until he meets a girl who makes him think otherwise. I honestly picked this book up expecting it to be horrible. But surprisingly, it wasn’t. I loved it’s developed characters and jokes, and how it very much was a Cinderella story, yet wasn’t. I also loved how it had the true essence of a fandom book, which will make all fandom obsessed readers relate It is very much one of those books that is super cheesy, yet addictive. And while it is just one of those feel-good books that you finish in a day, the characters and overall essence will stick with you.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick and fun read to brighten up their day. And even if you are not in a fandom, you’ll wish you were after reading this.
I hope that you guys enjoyed this review! This will be the end of my retelling review series, but that doesn't mean I will stop reviewing all retellings. Let me know what you think down in the comments below!
