Review: Geekerella by Ashley Poston

Why Did I Read? Well, I love retellings and I also love all things fandom so this was basically a match made in heaven! My Thoughts: I loved this book so much! It’s definitely one of my top favorites of the year. I remember feeling like I just wanted to cry because of how much I loved it. One of the biggest reasons is the aspect of fandom.

The Sound: As stated in my previous review of the first book, The Thief, I love Steve West! Will always be a fave narrator for me — so much emotion in his narrating! The Story: The switch from first person to third person POV caught me a bit off guard but it is necessary in this sequel as there are so many different things going on in different locations. I don’t think I disliked the POV switch […]

On top of all that, his voice is just so soothing to […]

Why Did I Read? I have ONLY been anxiously awaiting this series finale since I read an ARC of The Vanishing Throne back in January of 2016 — it has been a LONG wait, let me just say! My Thoughts: Firstly, I just have to say that I feel like this series is so underrated! It is such an intense, amazing series and I want more people to check it out! There’s historical fiction, action, fae, steampunk and […]
