    Description

    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.

    Fresh new take on the Cinderella tale

    I'm what you would call an older woman :-), but I always love a good Cinderella spin off. This book was a nice and well done. The storyline was modernized and well written. If you were looking for a light fun read this is it. Regarding the audiobook though, there are a lot of editing errors, such as repeated sentences. But I easily overlooked those as I enjoyed the story so much.

    A Charming Cinderella Story, More than Just a Retelling

    Poston does a brilliant job of lovingly grafting the odds and ends of contemporary geek culture over the age-old tale of Cinderella. We all know the story, and all the re-imaginings can easily come off as worn and tired. But Poston's retelling, like any good fairy tale told and retold over time, gives us the heartbeat of the time and space from which it springs. The writing is brisk and humorous, and the characters are constructed with care and wit. Stevens and Morris provide solid performances, and their voices serve Poston's narrative brilliantly. I enjoyed it immensely!

    Fun Cinderella story & all the things I love about con

    This is a fun take on Cinderella. It also has the moments I love about going to a SciFi Con.
    It is sweet and fun - but still solidly read.
    I really enjoyed it.

    Bad editing

    The story itself is a fun spin on a classic Cinderella story. The editing of the audio book however definitely needs working on. Multiple times there are lines which are repeated for no reason and other bad editing notes.

    Drawn out and got too annoying

    Rarely have I fast forwarded an audible just to stop the pain of a story being drawn out to no end, but this was a first out of over 100 books.

    I just couldn’t take the wimpy main character watching her stepsisters taunt her with her mothers clothes and these are teenagers. No taking it back, no threatening to harm them over the district of her dead mother’s most prized possession. I just can’t, too unrealistic considering the entitlement of all the teens in the book. Smh

    Absolutely Loved it!!😍😍😍

    Both narrations and the story were perfect. This is the first time I felt so connected to a main character in a story. My favorite part was was not just the texts but when Elle started converting Sage to a Star Gunner and kept Darian updated on the progress. it was one my most favorite scenes after Darian's first stunt scene for the movie and second to the last few scenes when Sage breaks entry into the Country club.

    fun book, but geeks be warned

    there were some mispronounced sci-fi words that took me out of the story. other than a word every so often I would totally recommend it.

    Review mostly regarding the audible portion...

    This is a confusing review to write. I enjoyed the story, but while I found the female perfect, I found the male narrator extremely distracting! He is absolutely the wrong voice for this book. I kept thinking “this sounds like a 30 year old man doing summer theatre instead of an 18 year old kid who although is an actor, acts on television/movies ”. I found it so distracting that at one point I stopped listening to google him. Low and behold we have a 30 (ish based on timeline) year old man who majored in theatre and runs a theatre company. The character is A person of color and the actor is a blond haired blue eyed blond. Why does this matter in an audiobook, you are probably wondering? Because I noticed that on the original cover of the book shown on Amazon the male character is on the cover and is obviously a person of color. On the audiobook cover the only thing different is that guy leaning against the truck is replaced with a unisex looking person with green hair in the front of the truck. Yes technically in the book her food truck coworker has green hair but she is also a she. You wouldn’t guess that the person on this book referred to her until after reading the book. Such an odd thing to change for no reason right? Extra irony points given for the fact that the male character specifically said that he appreciated that fact that Hollywood hadn’t attempted to “whitewash” the character that he was playing (in the movie within the book). Truthfully that whole issue really left me disappointed in the author. I don’t care what color a narrator is. I’ve never even looked it up before regardless of the characters color or ethnicity. But the narrator should be able to fit the character. If the character is an 18 year old kid, they should be able to reasonably sound like an 18 year old kid. And maybe you shouldn’t “whitewash” the cover? Just a few thoughts that distracted from an otherwise cute story.

    Needs a sequel

    Great start. It does manage to skip over a lot of stuff. But this needs a sequel

    Very Adorkable :D

    I really enjoyed this story more that I expected .. it was such a breath of fresh air to me and it's been a while since I was last immersed myself in a story like that .. it made me smile the kind of smile that made my cheeks hurt and I still kept smiling, I LOVED the main characters Elle and Darien and I was shipping them so hard that I finished the whole book in one day
    I did have a problem with the audio quality, I noticed there were a lot of repeated sentences and the male narrator sometimes forgets to say some words, but overall this book was amazing and highly recommended

    Simple, süße Geschichte, Hörbuch braucht Korrektur

    Die Geschichte ist niedlich, eben Cinderella als Nerd-Hommage. Da ich selber Kostüme gemacht habe und noch zu Conventions gehe, hat mir das sehr gut gefallen. Die Geschichte stockt hier und da ein bisschen, aber hat dafür andere starke Stellen. Süß auf jeden Fall, würde es weiterempfehlen. Aber das Hörbuch selber braucht mal eine kleine Korrektur, da ich an mindestens 4 Stellen wiederholte Sätze gehört habe. Also verschiedene Takes, weil man sich versprochen hat oder eine Variation wollte, sowas wird ja normalerweise rausgeschnitten. War eigentlich ganz lustig, aber so soll es ja nicht sein ;)

    A cute story about how everything is possible

    As the name already tells, it's a new take on the story of Cinderella. I really liked the story because I personally could relate to it a lot. It's a story about following your passion and believing in yourself. And all settled in the world of sifi, conventions and fandom's. It's well written even if it has some parts where the story ist dragged into length a bit. And sometimes you just want to push the main character and tell her to grow some balls :D I liked that the book was read from two different persons, even if sometimes they repeated some sentences, which felt like a second try didn't get but out. But all in all it's a great story and a good performance :)

    Entertaining

    I liked it. Ella got on my nerves sometimes with her winning and leak of taking action, control. She just wouldn't stand up for herself and what she wanted.
    But still it was entertaining, cute, fluffy and really funny on times.
