Geekerella by Ashley Poston | Book Review

Good morning, bookpups๐Ÿพ Do you love retellings? Geekerella by Ashley Poston is the first in an addictive fairytale series that meshes Cinderella with a Star Trek-based fandom, creating a unique retelling you won’t want to stop reading!

QOTD: Do you have a favorite fandom?

I am most definitely a Trekkie! So when I saw a fairytale retelling that centers around a Star Trek-esque fanbase, I had to read it! And I fully blame Once Upon a Time for my current obsession with fairytale retellings.

The thing I enjoyed most about Geekerella was seeing it unfold from both Elle and Darien’s points of view. I love dual POVs, as oftentimes the reader knows what’s going to happen long before the characters do. It becomes a sort of shared secret between author and reader.

This is the classic Cinderella story, with the addition of a very loud and on-the-verge-of-falling-apart vegan food truck (the Magic Pumpkin) and then an entirely new twist as we visit Darien and see his story progress. And of course, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Elle’s stepmother get it. She’s written in such a way that you dislike her from the very beginning.

As a Trekkie, I loved that this story centered around a sci-fi show (very much like Star Trek) and the ExcelsiCon (geek/nerd convention) that went with it. A fairytale with a sci-fi twist … a great combination!

      I’m looking forward to reading the second one so I can go get my hands on the 3rd (that one centers around Beauty & the Beast!).

      This cover seriously is gorgeous. It was one of the first things to draw me to the book, other than the fairytale retelling part LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

      Fairytale retellings are gold to me. One of my favorite genres, outside of romance ๐Ÿ™‚
