Format: Paperback (My recommendation: buy the hardcover)
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.
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
Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion.
What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.
My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I’ve been trained to fight. And I have a mission:
Remove the Tin Woodman’s heart. Steal the Scarecrow’s brain. Take the Lion’s courage. Then Dorothy must die.
Seventeen-year-old Lance thinks his life is just about perfect. Sure, he dreams of fighting far off battles, but that’s nothing more than a fantasy. Until the elders order him away from his village to find a name for himself.
In the capital, Lance navigates the court with Prince Kieran’s unlikely friendship. Yet the glitter and gold obscures a dark conspiracy. Soon the two friends find themselves propelled on a desperate quest. The stakes: Lance’s life, Kieran’s throne, and the survival of the Land itself.
Hunted by assassins, and haunted by the awakening of a strange and frightful power within them, they must find proof of Kieran’s claim to the throne before a dark god’s vengeance destroys them all. The Power is summoning a champion, and it will not be denied.
Anne with an “E” is a Netflix adaption of the classic, Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery.
I loved this book when I was younger – the best parts about it were Anne (who is so wonderfully creative and fanciful), her friendship with Diana, and the lightheartedness of the story, even though it had a darker background.
Since I love this series so much, I decided to watch this show…I will tell you up front, while I liked it (for the most part) it’s definitely a hit-or-miss adaption.
So if you’re up for hearing my thoughts on it, read on.
