[Review] Geekerella – Ashley Poston

I blame Once Upon a Time for my current obsession with fairytale retellings. It’s so much fun to revisit stories I loved as a child, but with a grown-up twist. Like one of my favorites, Cinderella.

The thing I enjoyed most about this story was seeing it unfold from both Elle & Darien’s points of view. It’s the classic Cinderella story from Elle’s point of view, 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 (aka Federation Prince Carmindor) and see his story progress. Not to mention, I really enjoyed watching Elle’s stepmother get it. She was written in such a way that you disliked her from the very beginning.

As a Trekkie, myself, 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. Fairytale with a sci-fi twist…great combination!

Downfall? I had a little trouble getting into the book at first. I’m not sure what it was because, once I got going, it flew for me. The beginning was just…a little slow.

Interested in trying it out? Check it out on Amazon or Barnes & Noble and see what you think!
