A Local Election and a Romance in the Making: Yes, No, Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed

I was super excited to get to read this one early. I really like Becky Albertalli, I love Simon vs. (wasn't a huge fan of Leah and I did not really like What If It's Us, but still) and I really like the fact that this was co-written by Aisha Saeed. I haven't read her… Continue reading A Local Election and a Romance in the Making: Yes, No, Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed

Coming Out, Oreos and a Whole Lot of Love: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

It's been a while since a book made me feel this good.  I haven't read a YA Contemporary in so long, so I was a tad hesitant to pick up Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

Plus, I… Continue reading Coming Out, Oreos and a Whole Lot of Love: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Books I’d Like to Read Before the End of the Year

Keeping my goals real modest.  My reading has slowed down immensely in the last month or so. During November, I barely read anything because I honestly did not have the time. December is pretty much the same. I have a lot of course work and exams coming up, so I am barely reading. And when… Continue reading Books I’d Like to Read Before the End of the Year
