This book was amazingly adorable that adds a modern/futuristic spin on the classic tale of Cinderella. I came across this book while strolling through Indigo in Windsor, and after a while of deciding if I wanted it or not; I bought the book offline; and I gotta say I am not disappointed at all! 📖📖📖📖📖 If you like the classic tale then you'll appreciate this awesome twist!

This one was absolutely brilliant!! I'm still under the impression and unable to find words to express myself properly (also, it's quite late where I am), so all I'm gonna say is that I 100% love it!! Definitely one of my this year's favourites! ❤️❤️😅🙈📚📚 #fandom #fanfic

ElizaMarie I really liked it too! I didn't think I would. I mean .. I guess I didn't know what to think initially but after reading it I found it way so cute! 2w
zezeki @ElizaMarie I didn't have any expectations before reading it either, just wanted something light and cute, and I got so much more. 2w
zezeki @ElizaMarie I guess it was unexpectedly good and really charming! 2w

ElizaMarie @zezeki I think (if I remember correctly) I had picked it for one of my Bingo squares (Pumpkin maybe?) So, I didn't know what would it be. And I like to say I don't like retelling of fairy tales but... that's such a lie! I think in my head I don't like them but every one I have read I have enjoyed (if any of that makes sense)
2w
hermyknee Yeah I really enjoyed this one when I read it, too! I also wasn‘t expecting much, but I adored it! 2w
ShyBookOwl I thought this was great too. The next one, The Princess and the Fangirl was good too. 2w

This is really cute. I don‘t typically like fiction audiobooks, I prefer to have the book in hand — but the actors who read/act out the parts, especially Elle, are *so* good.

This was cute and fun, but didn‘t necessarily blow me away. I did like the way the author blended a traditional fairy tale with geek culture.
I‘m flying through the audiobooks this summer, but can‘t seem to get through any physical books... 😕

Cinderella retelling with some nice touches, but few surprises. I‘m so torn with this rating, because the story had my attention. However, I have a few too many nits to pick. I might have liked this better if I‘d read the print edition as opposed to the audio.

This is such a cute retelling. I love these sorts of stories and this one was really good. The story was current and fun. The ending was perfect and I enjoyed every word. Ella is a perfect lead and I instantly fell in love with Darien. A wonderful story.

I really enjoyed this take on Cinderella - my inner geek was fangirling quite hard most of the time. But there was one huge flaw that I couldn't look past - the plot centres on Elle's stepmother selling her father's house, but it says explicitly that the stepmother holds the house on trust for Elle until she is an adult. Which means she can't just sell it - that's not how trusts work! This kind of ruined the story for me...

Cinfhen Are you an attorney??? 😉😂that point would annoy my hubby too!! Although I‘ve heard this retelling is actually really fun 6mo
Sarz @Cinfhen Haha, I am 🙊 I'm pretty insufferable when they don't get it right! It is a GREAT story, once you get past the fact that it's entirely basis is legally incorrect 🤣 6mo

I loved this book (listened to the audiobook). As a fantasy/sci-fi nerd myself, this version of Cinderella really resonated with me. I appreciated that even though it‘s YA, it was still well-written and not too young. Very clever parallels to the fairy tale.

At some parts of the story you will either a) want to roll up into a ball and cry b) want to punch one of the characters and or c) want to yell at one of them. It was so beautifully written and you could tell she put a lot of emotion into this book.

I loved this book. There was just something about her writing that hooked me, plus it is a fairytale retelling. She honestly seems to understand fandom and how it bonds people together. In her acknowledgments Poston writes, "There might not be real magic in this world, but there is the power of fandom." I am now a fan of this series.

GondorGirl I just started the sequel! The first book was so adorable! 8mo

A cute, geeky retelling of Cinderella. One of those instanceS where I felt that a POC character was written into the story but given little development or context. It felt lazy...considering how many details went into the faux fandom that the story was built on. That said, it still managed to be a fun read.

KathyWheeler This was a book I bailed on; I think the problem may have been my mood at the time though. I‘ll have to give it a second chance. 8mo

I am a sucker for a fairytale retelling. When I heard this one was a Cinderella tale against the backdrop of fandom and geekery, I was so excited. Once I dug in and realized it was primarily a YA romance, I thought "oh! That makes sense... uh oh." Romance is not my typical genre, but this was a good first experience with it. It was cute and fun and I really like that a point was made to have a brown "prince" and even a same-sex romance.

Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Firefly, Lion King, Princess Bride!! There was even a mention of Supernatural!!! (Fangirling!!) There's a Comic Con with cosplay and a full on tribute to all the fandoms. THIS! is my favorite book right now!!
