BY: NISHA GODE & BRITTANY LEWIS

Welcome readers to the inaugural Reading Our Shelves review.

Nisha, you told me about this book coming out. I read “Geekerella” last year but didnt know “The Princess and the Fangirl” was coming. It totally snuck up on me.

Nisha

Goodreads actually told me about it initially and I had it marked on my calendar. Even then, I hadn’t quite realized it was there because I had been so consumed with the Avengers premiere the week before.

Brittany

Yeah, it did come put around then huh? It was a nice surprise.

Nisha

Which book journey did you like more? The adventures to the con or con itself in the sequel?

Brittany

The first book “Geekerella” had all the world building. Not only the lead up to the con world but Starfield. Its history as a show and the shows canon. I loved the world building it gave enough uniqueness to take away from the Cinderella vibes. Though I still loved those elements too. I’m have a bit of a fairy tale obsession. That’s why I picked up “Geekerella” to begin with.

As for “The Princess and the Fangirl,” it seemed both fast and slow. Some parts were drawn out and others needed more time. My main issue with this story is the pacing. What did you think of the pacing?

Nisha

I agree with you about the pacing. Sometimes I like reading about Imogen and sometimes I really just wanted to get done with Jess already. Her script plot seems to just drag sometimes. Or maybe I just enjoyed Imogen more because of we’re all on that side of life and want to spend time with Darien and Elle.
