The Princess and the Fangirl
The Princess and the Fangirl: A Geekerella Fairytale | Ashley Poston
The Prince and the Pauper gets a modern makeover in this adorable, witty, and heartwarming young adult novel set in the Geekerella universe by national bestselling author Ashley Poston. Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: save her favorite character, Princess Amara, from being killed off from her favorite franchise, Starfield. The problem is, Jessica Stonethe actress who plays Princess Amarawants nothing more than to leave the intense scrutiny of the fandom behind. If this year's ExcelsiCon isn't her last, she'll consider her career derailed. When a case of mistaken identity throws look-a-likes Imogen and Jess together, they quickly become enemies. But when the script for the Starfield sequel leaks, and all signs point to Jess, she and Imogen must trade places to find the person responsible. That's easier said than done when the girls step into each other's shoes and discover new romantic possibilities, as well as the other side of intense fandom. As these "princesses" race to find the script-leaker, they must rescue themselves from their own expectations, and redefine what it means to live happily ever after.

Sigh, I really wanted to like this more... but the two main characters were so whiny! I‘d give it 3.5 stars, the last 25% of the book brought in the .5 star. Lol!

I‘m bailing at 50%. It just doesn‘t have the charm of her previous book, Geekerella.

I‘ve been fangirling over the cover + premise of this book from afar for quite a while now, so I was pretttttty excited to have the chance to read it for the second week of New Reads November on my podcast! The Princess and the Fangirl takes a fresh look at the classic “Prince and the Pauper” storyline against the cool backdrop of a fan convention. I had so much fun talking to my guest Rachel Strolle all about it! Link to listen in bio!

I have a few days off of work so i spent today doing chores...🤔 ok, I really spent it reading the sequel to geekarella and working on kids craft projects. I like this fluffy series that is a retelling of different fairy tales in a setting similar to comic con.

My thoughts on this are slightly complicated. Not sure if it's because I didn't read the other books on this series. If you can get past some of the "high school"ness (I know it's YA), it is fairly decent

Loved it! Prince and the pauper with a fangirl and a movie star. I didn‘t read the first book, geekerella. It was fine, but I didn‘t know some of what they were talking about. Plot wise it was ok. It‘s super fun, lots of pop culture references for a nerd like me!

I really need to reread the first book it's been awhile. I'm glad this book is more like a standalone with references back to Geekereela because most of them dont even ring a bell but boy is this cute.I do feel like this one is more cute and I remember the first one being more lol funny with lots of bad language. 😋

Overall 5/5 this was such a sweet story from start to finish. I enjoyed Geekerella and this was just a little better because of one of the main characters.

Plot 5/5

The plot of this was fantastic. I loved this retelling and the modern take on The Prince and the Pauper.

Characters 5/5

I loved the character of Imogen. I enjoyed Jessica and finding out more about her choices.

Writing 5/5
I loved the writing and Ashley Poston is fantastic

The Princess and the Fangirl is true YA, all the characters think everyone else has their shit together and there‘s a lot of internal trash talking. It has a positive message of not assuming, spending time, literally or not, in another‘s shoes to get some perspective. It is very much able to stand alone from the Geekeralla series but I really enjoyed how it brought the previous characters in and told a wee bit of the previous story.

ShyBookOwl I completely agree with your review 👍🏼 6mo

This was everything I hoped it would be. Ashley Poston captures that magical feeling of being at a con surrounded by strangers who are family so well. I definitely cried several times from just how accurate it was. It feels authentic and fun. Plus the romances are adorable. I highly suggest reading this and Geekerella for some fluffy YA feels.

Just kickin' back with this timely and lovely creature after a long work day.
Hey Littens! Long time no post! This year has been crazy and I gave myself permission to post (or not to post, and yes I'm owning that pun) on social media only if it felt joyful to do so. (Before that social media was getting to be a big stressor in my life.) But I've been thinking of you all now that BEA is almost here, and I miss you. Who's going to BEA this year?

I didn‘t realise this was kind of a continuation of a series, but the premise sounded intriguing and the book did the premise justice; I was just annoyed for the first half of the book because I wanted to throttle both heroines.

I hope everyone had a great Easter. The Easter Bunny (aka Husband) took me out to buy some books since he forgot me this year. 😂 We went to a crazy family luncheon, and no I‘m going to finish The Last of August so that I can start my new convention themed books.

I struggled to get through this. I didn‘t feel connected to either main character and the ending felt so rushed. There was also an overload of multiple fandom references- a few would be fine but there was some sort of reference on almost every page (I know it‘s a book about a Fangirl- but we can talk about more than fandoms 🙄). Also we get it Imogen- you are a gryffindor 🙄).

This book follows one of my favorite novels of all time, Geekerella. It is a fitting follow up to a great story about romance, fandoms, and finding the truth within.

“Sometimes the stories you want aren‘t the ones you need, and the ones you need are the ones you never thought you‘d like.”

This was a cute, fun, fandom take on The Prince and the Pauper that explored some of the awful toxicity that runs rampant in SFF fandom today. I think Geekerella was the better book, but this was very enjoyable all the same. A few too many cringey fandom references but eh, forgiven for the characters and the message.

The purpose of this book is to explain, validate and celebrate fandom. At times it felt a little forced but not unreadable. The romances were fun and cute, with a diverse and inclusive cast of characters. A decent follow up to Geekerella, though it did feel like the first book had stronger narrative direction. Overall, between a so-so and a pick. I don't regret reading it.

Halfway through The Princess and the Fangirl. I think the first one had a stronger story, but this one is exploring some interesting corners of fandom. I do kind of feel like it's trying to EXPLAIN fandom to readers, which is probably unnecessary since we already bought the book 😏 Still enjoyable!

This was one of my most anticipated read of April and it didn't disappoint. I do think I like Geekerella a little bit more. I loved going back to the con and catching up with some of the characters from the last book. I also think Jessica redeemed herself in this book. I didn't really like her character in the last book but I did in this one. So glad she and Imogen got their happy endings!

Debdeb I like the sound of this book, is it a second book tho? I always have to read in order, can‘t bear the thought I‘ve missed out on something 8mo
Lovesbooks87 @Debdeb both of the books were really good. There are two books. The first one was called Geekerella and then the second book is the one I just read. I don't like reading books out of order either! 8mo
Debdeb Thank you @Lovesbooks87 Will add both to my stack xx 8mo

Happy book release day to this novel! I am 5% done. I read the first two chapters, but I have the Ebook, so it is easier to measure percentages, as opposed to pages. I love our main character Imogen. I was not a huge fan of Jess in Geekerella. However, I read a review that says she gets redeemed in this book.

This sequel to Geekerella was one of my most anticipated books. I didn't love it as much, but it was still fun. It clapped back at toxic geek culture, celebrated the power of fandom, and included a F/F relationship. And was super cute to boot.
