#81 - Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda - Becky Albertalli

I decided to pick up this book after having heard nothing but good things about it. I had already read The Upside on Unrequited by Becky Albertalli and so I had to read Simon (with the movie coming out soon and everything). I bought this on Audible with my credit on the month.

 

There is just so much cuteness in this book you will want to cry of joy all the time. I think it was such a beautiful story written in a unique way. You cannot help but love Simon, he is an incredible young men. The plot was simple but beautiful, the writing was amazing, the characters were complex and diverse and the pacing was perfect. I don’t know what more to say, it was such a great read.

 

Also, this book is important and has beautiful message. I love the fact that Simon thinks straight people should also do their coming out, it was a really clever thing to introduce in the book. Where I live, homophobia is not that present, or should I say people think it is not? Every time I hear people making jokes about gay people I cringe. They’d tell me “it’s just for fun, I don’t have a problem with gay people” and they don’t see how wrong this sentence is. It really made me think a lot about this problem in our society and makes me realize that you can still learn every day.

 

Again, Becky Albertalli managed to write a meaningful book that makes you think a lot without even realizing it. When you read it, you just enjoy the cuteness of it all, and then it made you think about what is wrong with the society.

 

I recommend this (and I can't wait for the movie)!

Book review : The upside of unrequited Becky albertalli
The Upside of Unrequited - Becky Albertalli

October 15- 23

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love—she’s lived through it twenty-six times. She crushes hard and crushes often, but always in secret. Because no matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful.

Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly’s totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie’s new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. Will is funny and flirtatious and just might be perfect crush material. Maybe more than crush material. And if Molly can win him over, she’ll get her first kiss and she’ll get her twin back. 

There’s only one problem: Molly’s coworker Reid. He’s an awkward Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there’s absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

Review : This book was so freaking cute I related to Molly so much in this book she's a curvy girl and she has anxiety . Molly has had 27 crushes but no boyfriends she has a twin sister and two mom's I wasn't a big fan of Molly's sister I thought she could be kinda a bitch . Molly ends up introducing Cassie to her future girlfriend and then mostly after Mina comes into the picture Cassie kinda drifts away from Molly and cassie wants Molly to date Mina's best friend Will and Molly doesn't think will has any interest in her and then there is Reid who is just so freaking adorable I shipped him and Molly like on first meeting they just click together and Molly starts to like Reid more than a friend and when her friend Olivia looks like she has some interest in Reid Molly freaks out and gets Mad at Reid and to make him jealous she hangs out with will who doesn't like her that way . The cool thing about this book is we got cameo's from Simon who I love and Abby is Molly's cousin . But Molly tells Reid how she feels which was so sweet and they kiss and next was there mom's wedding which was so sweet I loved this book . The one problem I had was the gradmother yes she use to to be big but insulting Molly like that wasn't cool .

Quotes:


I don’t entirely understand how anyone gets a boyfriend. Or a girlfriend. It just seems like the most impossible odds. You have to have a crush on the exact right person at the exact right moment. And they have to like you back. A perfect alignment of feelings and circumstances. It’s almost unfathomable that it happens as often as it does.”


There’s just something terrifying about admitting you like someone. In a way, it’s actually easier when there’s no chance of anything happening. But there’s this threshold where things suddenly become possible. And then your cards are on the table. And there you are, wanting, right out in the open.”


I'm on the toilet at the 9:30 Club and I'm wondering how mermaids pee.” 


It's funny, because you always think the hard part is meeting someone the first time. It's not. It's the second time, because you've already used up all the obvious topics of conversation. And even if you haven't, it's strange and heavy-handed to introduce random conversational topics at this stage in the game. Hi, Reid. Let's converse about topics. HOW MANY SIBLINGS DO YOU HAVE? WHAT BOOKS DO YOU LIKE?”


Okay, I just gotta say it." The guy touches my arm. "You are fucking gorgeous for a big girl."
I freeze.
"It's a compliment!"
I look at him. "Fuck you.

I'm not trying to over think things. I'm trying to be less careful . but you have to be your hearts own goalie

Execpt - oh god- what if the machine announces it
CONDOMS! TWELVE ninety nine ! Please place your GIANT box of condoms in the bag . oh but your VALUE pack of condoms is too big for our sensors . Please wait, and someone will assist you shortly .


I'm just letting him know - she start typing that Olivia would be happy to get waxed if he's willing to wax his tiny , microscopic little peen at the same time ....
