Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Okay, this book goes down as one of the best contemporaries that I’ve ever read, hands down. It showcases what it is like to be part of a fandom wonderfully; has a romance that has some major swoons; has a fairytale retelling that is equally adorable and fantastical; actually got this Heartless Book Princess to get the tiniest bit choked up; and it made me feely feel so hard. I loved this book, and it easily hopped right up on the favorites book shelf so fast.

YOU MAY ENJOY…

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

Goodness, I really enjoyed this book as well. IT WAS SO GOOD. While it is not a fairytale retelling, it is book that does focus on the fandom is a totally authentic way. It also features some of the same elements besides that: it has an adorable romance, it is jam packed with feels, and dear gosh, it totally got me to kind of maybe shed one tear. Just one. And it’s even questionable of its existence. But if your’e looking for a really good contemporary that will be a good follow up to Geek, this book will totally be the perfect choice!

What do you think? Have you read and enjoyed either of these? What are some other books that are great about fandoms and feels? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

    I find this kind of amusing since I bought these books together. I’m reading Geekerella soon, and I’m kind of nervous since I’ve never really been involved in any fandoms, and contemporary book are not my thing, but we shall see.

      That’s amazing, Moira. XD It must mean they really do go together? XD But I really hope you enjoy! I think it could be versatile enough that even if you’re not super into contemporary or fandom, it can appeal. *crosses fingers that you enjoy*

    I like this meme! Since fairy tale retellings seem to be the theme of this blog I MUST suggest……

    If you like Jackson Pearce’s “Fathomless” a very dark retelling of the Little Mermaid then you may like Nancy Werlin’s “Impossible” an equally sinister retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. Both of them tie YA romance in with the original story, both of them are a crazy way of looking at the fairy tale.

      Ooooooh, love it! I haven’t read Fathomless, but I’m definitely going to have to. The Impossible was super good, so if it’s part of the equation, I’ll definitely have to take a look at it. Wonderful choices! 🙂
