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.

Elle is a fangirl who is gaga over Starfield after sharing the love with her late father. She is less then trilled when she finds out that Darien Freeman is playing one of the main characters in a reboot and worried they might ruin and white wash everything shes come to love. Starfield was something she could escape into when she has to deal with her mother and messed up sisters. ExcelsiCon (Which was created by her father) is coming soon and is hosting a costume contest and Elle is on a mission to win it along with the prize using her fathers old costume.

I really had fun reading this book. In fact it pretty much took over my whole morning which oops I had things to do. I guess I'll have to get them done tomorrow. I found it so easy to get sucked into this book and it was so fun reading from the point of view of a fangirl like Elle. It was also interesting getting to see from Dariens voice ands seeing what he is really like behind all that star glamour. I loved how the story played out and I love coming across retellings. Also loving that cover, at first if I'm honest the cover turned me off but when reading the description of the book I was curious. After reading the book I really appreciate that cover and loved how it perfectly suited the book. Overall a great book for you fangirls and boys out there, its such a fun book.
