Title: The Princess and the Fangirl
Author: Ashley Poston
Date of Publication: April 2nd, 2019
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 Stone—the actress who plays Princess Amara—wants 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.
I thought Geekerella was one of the cutest books after I read it, plus, I loved all the fandom stuff! The Princess and the Fangirl did not disappoint in that aspect! There was some pretty awesome fandom stuff mentioned!
I was also excited to see two girl perspectives! However, I feel like the romantic stuff, while cute, was extremely insta love. It’s fine for insta attraction or whatever, but neither Jessica’s or Imogen’s relationship was developed enough, since the girls had other things they were doing in the book while the romantic interest was missing. So I don’t know!
Besides the romance stuff, the rest was pretty awesome! There was a lot of witty dialogue, diversity, wonderful writing, and a neat setting! Ashley Poston is becoming an insta buy for me because I’ve liked every book I’ve read by her thus far!
