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.

Book 1
Enter the Grishaverse with the #1 New York Times–bestselling Six of Crows.

Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can't pull it off alone. . . .

A convict with a thirst for revenge.

A sharpshooter who can't walk away from a wager.

A runaway with a privileged past.

A spy known as the Wraith.

A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.

A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz's crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction—if they don't kill each other first.

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo returns to the breathtaking world of the Grishaverse in this unforgettable tale about the opportunity—and the adventure—of a lifetime.

“Six of Crows is a twisty and elegantly crafted masterpiece that thrilled me from the beginning to end.” –New York Times-bestselling author Holly Black

“Six of Crows [is] one of those all-too-rare, unputdownable books that keeps your eyes glued to the page and your brain scrambling to figure out what’s going to happen next.” –Michael Dante DiMartino, co-creator of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra

“There's conflict between morality and amorality and an appetite for sometimes grimace-inducing violence that recalls the Game of Thrones series. But for every bloody exchange there are pages of crackling dialogue and sumptuous description. Bardugo dives deep into this world, with full color and sound. If you're not careful, it'll steal all your time.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Bardugo crafts a first-rate adventure, a poignant romance, and an intriguing mystery!” —Rick Riordan, bestselling author of the Percy Jackson series

"Welcome to midnight, my fellow Niteowls…†?
No one would ever suspect that responsible, ugly-sweater-wearing Ingrid North is the incognito radio deejay known only as Niteowl. Finally a high school grad, she can't wait to get out of her tiny hometown of Steadfast, Nebraska (population three hundred and forty-seven) to chase her dreams. Thankfully, her three best friends-Billie, LD, and Micah (who she is definitely, absolutely, not in love with)-are more concerned with spending one last epic summer together than finding out where Ingrid slinks off to every weekend.
But for that one glorious hour every Saturday night, Iggy shucks her own skin to become Niteowl-a infamous and daring deejay with the answers to everyone's love life but her own. There is one caller in particular-Dark and Brooding-whose raspy laugh and snarky humor is just sexy enough to take her mind off the fact that Micah is rapidly falling for a Mean-Girls-worthy nightmare. But when Ingrid lands an interview in New York City for the internship of a lifetime, her secret life begins to unravel. It's her chance to follow her heart, but she'll have to leave everything behind-her ailing grandmother, her friends, her radio show...and a chance at her very own happy ending.
Torn between her dreams and her home, Iggy begins to realize that to get what she wants, she has to give up the things that mean the most to her. But letting go could lead to a summer of sunflowers, rockstars, and the show of a lifetime.
And Iggy might just find that her real life begins when Niteowl goes off the air.

 Um divertido romance que traz a clássica história de Cinderela para os dias de hoje

 

Quando Elle Wittimer, nerd de carteirinha, descobre que sua série favorita vai ganhar uma refilmagem hollywoodiana, ela fica dividida. Antes de seu pai morrer, ele transmitiu à filha sua paixão pelo clássico de ficção científica, e agora ela não quer que suas lembranças sejam arruinadas por astros pop e fãs que nunca tinham ouvido falar da série. Mas a produção do filme anunciou um concurso de cosplay numa famosa convenção valendo um convite para um baile com o ator principal, e Elle não consegue resistir. Na Abóbora Mágica, o food truck vegano onde trabalha, ela encontra a ajuda de uma amiga cheia de talentos para moda que vai criar o traje perfeito para a ocasião. Afinal, o concurso é a chance de Elle se livrar das tarefas domésticas impostas pela terrível madrasta e das irmãs postiças malvadas.

Já Darien Freeman, o astro adolescente escalado para ser o protagonista do filme, não está nada ansioso para o evento, embora o papel seja seu grande sonho. Visto como só mais um rostinho bonito, o próprio Darien também está começando a achar que se tornou uma farsa. Até que, no baile, ele conhece uma menina que vai provar o contrário.

Esta releitura de Cinderela transporta para o universo nerd os principais elementos do clássico conto de fadas, fazendo uma verdadeira homenagem a todos aqueles que sabem o que é ser fã e se dedicar de coração àquilo que amam.
