Today I recommend: Geekerella: A Novel by Ashley Poston.
In a modern version of “Cinderella”, a devoted fan of a classic sci-fi television series, Elle Wittimer, risks the ire of her evil stepsisters by entering a cosplay contest to win an invitation to a ball where she would meet her favorite actor, a teen star who would prove he is more than just a dumb heartthrob.
I really enjoyed this sweet romance novel. It felt like a love letter to everything fandom – full of references to actors such as Chris Pine and TV shows and movies like Star Trek, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. The choice to update ‘Cinderella’ feels like a good one with the cosplay contest and the costume taking the place of the traditional ballgown and lost slipper. This is perfect for readers looking for an enjoyable fluffy romance and especially for readers who are geeks and fans at heart!
You can find this book in the Young Adult Fiction section at YA POSTON.
