Okay, can I just say that August was the fastest month of the year?
I don’t know about you, but it went by faster than the rest of the year has, and I’m not sure if I should be scared or just ignore it. (Let’s be honest – there’s no way I have the attention span to care for more than a few weeks)
Anyway! There are some incredible new releases and sequels coming out this month! So let’s get on with this post! I organize by release date, BTW
August was a pretty good story month for me – I read a lot of good books, both for book clubs and for #TheReadingQuest. I will add an update for that reading challenge at the bottom of the page, but first let’s talk about the books I read in August!
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
