Look what arrived on my doorstep last week! The Geekerella prize pack I won from Armchair Book Expo! I’ve been wanting to read this book ever since I finished the excerpt!

Since I love candles almost as much as I love books, words cannot describe how happy I was to receive this special edition candle! Created by Icey Designs, the scent reminds me of pumpkin spice. Fitting, since Elle works at a Magic Pumpkin food truck!


When geek girl Elle Wittimer sees a cosplay contest sponsored by the producers of Starfield, she has to enter. First prize is an invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. 

Elle’s been scraping together tips from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck behind her stepmother’s back, and winning this contest could be her ticket out once and for all – not to mention a fangirl’s dream come true.

Teen actor Darien Freeman is less than thrilled about this year’s ExcelsiCon. He used to live for conventions, but now they’re nothing but jaw-aching photo sessions and awkward meet-and-greets.

Playing Federation Prince Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the diehard Starfield fandom has already dismissed him as just another heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, closet nerd Darien feels more and more like a fake – until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. (Goodreads)

The Author

Ashley Poston loves coffee, moving castles, and starry night skies. A graduate from the University of South Carolina, she earned a degree in English and became a scholar in procrastination. 

When not in search of her next great adventure, she lives with her bossy cat in rural South Carolina. They are both firm believers that cosmic princesses can be space pirates, too.

Sometimes, you can catch her lurking around in coffee shops where she reads copious amounts of fanfiction and plays a lot of video games. Oh, and she writes nerdy books for young adults. (website)

Check out the awesome trailer!
