It's Wednesday!! Hunting Fiends For The Ill-Equipped & Geekerella


Happy Wednesday you lovely bookish people!
I've found a new (to me) meme called Shelf Control and It merges beautifully with Can't Wait Wednesday! Celebrating the books already on my bookshelf alongside highlighting the books I'm looking forward to in the future!
🙂



OMG! There's finally a cover! And a blurb and I'm dying!!!
It's been too long since January and I'm not kidding, I may actually DIE* from needing this book (and the rest of both series) before they draw to their conclusions!

Releases: April 3rd

(*Okay, I may be kidding about the actual dying but it feels like I might...)


I thought I understood power.

My parents taught me that magic attracts equal danger, and everything I've seen since becoming a demon contractor confirms it. I've witnessed how power twists and corrupts—and I've tasted power no human should wield.

I thought I knew greed.

Ambition and avarice drove my family into hiding. My parents died for someone else's greed. I've never hunted anything in my life, but now I'm hunting their killer—with my demon's help.

I thought I'd seen evil.

But with each step closer to my parents' murderer, I'm uncovering a different sort of evil, piece by hidden piece. I've stumbled into an insidious web that silently, secretly ensnares everything it touches. My demon and I came as the hunters...

...but I think we might be the prey.

What are you waiting on this week?




Cinderella goes to the con in this fandom-fueled twist on the classic fairy tale.

Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom. Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.

Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but the Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise.


I bought it last year on Kindle when it was on sale at 99p.


It's a fairytale retelling and I love those (even if this is Cinderella, one of the ones I like least) plus it gets lots of great feedback and frequently makes it into people's "best of" lists and whatever.
I've never read anything by the author so I'd like to see what the fuss is about.

  1. I remember a lot of people reading/reviewing Geekerella when it first came out and most seemed to love it. It sounds like it would be super cute and a lot of fun.

  2. I can't wait for Hunting Fiends! I still need to finish Druids though and I heard this one will have tons of spoilers for Druids so I need to finish it! I'm behind. :(

    1. Apparently from this book onwards the two series overlap tighter and tighter and you can't read one without spoilers for the other. I am SO ready for this! Fingers crossed you manage to catch up soon!

  5. If you are having a bad day, and need a pick-me-up, read Geekerella. I was smiling my face off, when I read that one.

  6. I'm hoping to get back into my reading this weekend. I haven't even been able to concentrate on Harry Potter! Once isolation starts, I hope to be calmer and get stuck into some projects that I've been putting off due to lack of time. No excuses now! Hopefully you'll get to enjoy both books soon!

    1. Isolation for me is going to look very different! WFH around home schooling the kid... I have no idea when I'll have time to read but I'm determined to find a way!
