Waiting on Wednesday:Geekerella

30201136

Summary:

Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi 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’s 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.

Why I’m Excited:

I love a good fairytale retelling. I mean, hello, my Lunar Chronicles and Wrath and the Dawn obsessions? LOVE.

But another thing I love? Being a geek and cosplaying at comicons! That’s something I know that I’ve spoken about before, but it is something that is a passion for me.

Geekerella releases April 4 and I’m so excited to read it and see a character that I wish had existed when I was in school. I wasn’t quite the comicon nerd like I am now- they weren’t a thing back then really like they are now- but I still would have appreciated the story.

I’m definitely looking forward to this and plan to read it as soon as possible!
