I actually rather enjoyed Geekerella by Ashley Poston. I thought I wouldn’t because it had a con in it and the last con book I read wasn’t as enjoyable. I liked how this one was more about the fandom and it had bits and pieces of every fandom mentioned, or at least the popular ones.
The feels in this book were just that pretty much, the feels. I started this book on a Sunday morning and realized I had read 100 pages before I had to go out and do errands. That’s usually the sign of a good book. I loved the Cinderella take of the plot. This book was like a cross between Another Cinderella Story with Selena Gomez (SUPER CUTE MOVIE!!!) and Cinder and Ella. I know authors don’t like to be compared to other works, but it’s the truth here and a very good compliment.
I can’t stop thinking about the book and I lent it out to a relative and I miss it even though I have the book on my e-reader as well. (Yes, I bought them both, I do that sometimes.)
It was just a really excellent read and I feel like this review isn’t doing it justice. I do need to read the end of the book again though because I had lost some of the feeling of it because I finished the last 8 chapters while walking around at Costco one night, but I don’t mind doing that at some point to fully capture those last moments again.
It was a five star read especially since I can’t stop thinking about that book. I had actually picked up the book at one point last year but for whatever reason it just wasn’t the right time to read it because I had put it back down. I’m glad I picked it up again!
