Geekerella

By Ashley Poston

My thoughts on this book:

This is such a cute and clever story!

Ever since Elle was little, she’s loved a Sci-Fi TV series called Starfield. Her parents also loved the show and her dad actually started a convention called ExcelsiCon for Starfield fans. Now, there’s a Starfield reboot with new actors and a chance to enter a cosplay contest. Winners of the contest will get a chance to attend the ExcelsiCon Ball and meet the new actor playing the part of Prince Carmindor. Elle knows she must enter the contest because she’s an ultimate fangirl and lives for Starfield. The big problem is that Elle’s stepmother is bitter about anything that doesn’t benefit her and she hates Starfield. Elle will have to find a way to make this happen on her own and without her stepmom finding out.

Shabby Sunday: Andersen’s Fairy Tales – Illustrated Junior Library – Arthur Szyk – 1945 #ShabbySunday #FairyTales #VintageBooks

Shabby Sunday

I have a bunch of old vintage books and one of my plans when I first started blogging was to do a post every now and then sharing one of my cherished vintage books. Then I thought there might be other book bloggers out there that have some vintage books, heirlooms, or maybe some old books from childhood that they might want to share. I decided to start a meme titled ‘Shabby Sunday’ for those who would like to participate and share some of their old vintage books. Do you have some shabby books you’d like to share? If so, please feel free to participate as anyone can join. Feel free to use the picture I’ve provided if you’d like to. If you decide to do this meme, please consider linking back to me so that I can see the book you’re sharing.

To me fairy tales are some of the best stories. I grew up reading fairy tales, I still read them to my children, and they’re stories I still enjoy today as an adult.

Thinking back, I can remember some of my favorites when I was four or five years old. I enjoyed listening to tales such as Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, The Ugly Duckling, and Little Red Riding Hood on my record player.
