Very very cute YA romance. I like how they both learned how to have honest conversations and develop a healthy relationship. I‘m looking forward to reading the sequel. Thank you for the loan!

Amelias.Reading.Corner You‘re very welcome! Hope you enjoy the next one as well. 1mo

I need Becky & Adam to write EVERYTHING I ever experience from now on?? Their words sing together and paint such raw teens with really big love and messy feelings. I felt so frustrated at their fights but didn‘t expect them to solve it in any other way. Plus, I simultaneously want to be Dylan and have a best friend like him. I love love loved this little cheesy universe they created and don‘t ever want to leave its massive splendor 💕

What a cute romance that encapsulated all the butterflies of meeting someone new, getting to know that person and developing a deep connection with them. Ben was my favorite. I enjoyed his steadfastness.

A cute YA book. Arthur will meet Ben during the summer in some strange circumstances, maybe the universe wanted to connect them? You need to read the story to understand this phrase. Many things will happen that summer between these two characters from different backgrounds. I think they resolved their life situations very well taking in consideration their age, communication is the clue. Funny YA scenes and I liked the end, was different.

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 4mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Wow. This was such a delightful, joyful, relatable, quirky, wonderful read. I laughed out loud on airplanes. I reminisced about my own first love and friendships. It made me fall in love with reading all over again, and I ordered the sequel immediately!

A few pages in and I'm already laughing! 😂

Also, are you normal or do you also take photos of sections of text because you want to remember them (because they are funny, educational, inspirational, well-written, etc)? My phone is full of photos like this and I'm pretty confident I hardly ever revisit them.

I saw this book so much on booktok I knew I had to read it, and I‘m so glad I did. It was SO great to read a queer romance novel that wasn‘t focused on or involving one of the characters coming out. A super cute, fun read. A feel good book for sure. Very excited for the sequel

I read this because my teen daughter loved it and wanted me to. It did what I most wanted it to which was that we had a couple good conversations about stuff that can otherwise be awkward to talk about. Books are great for me to understand my teens better. The book was very cute, but it needed more conflict at points. However I am definitely not the target audience. 😊

This is such a cute book! ❤️ I immediately put the sequel on my wish list to preorder (and I‘m glad there‘s a sequel because I want more!). Ben, in the midst of mailing a box back to his recent ex, runs into Arthur. They don‘t exchange numbers and barely exchange names, and so begins the hunt for each other as they realize they might have missed out on something magical. Will it be just a summer adventure, or true love?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have loved one of Albertalli‘s books & liked the other 2. I haven‘t read Adam Silvera before. I loved this story they co-wrote about 2 high schoolers who meet-cute & fall in love within a few weeks while one is in town w/ his family. There‘s high school drama & funny friends. The ending is realistic, & I‘m now excited because there‘s going to be a sequel next December. This is my #doublespin for April. @TheAromaofBooks

I absolutely loved this book. I don't usually enjoy realistic fiction novels but I have to say this was an excellent read. To anyone who loves romance novels with a bit of drama, I would highly recommend What If It's Us. Becky Albertalli has made two very well developed and different main characters. This makes the book so much more interesting because we get to see how they interact with eachother. Overall this was an amazing read. @MrsBabki

What if it‘s Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera is a wonderful story about a guy named Arthur who is taking an internship at his own mother‘s law firm for the summer. It couldn‘t get any worse, he still gets lost in the streets and he misses his best friends from home; until everything changed. Arthur ran into this really cute guy at the post office, ‘Box Boy‘, and it just so seems that Box Boy is getting rid of his ex boyfriend‘s things.

Kiyomi.loose Arthur is a firm believer in the Universe, and I mean come on, a cute guy who is single and moving on just so happens to stop in at the post office at the same time as him and it‘s just a coincidence? Arthur doesn‘t think so, things happen for a reason; is the universe on their side? If you like books that are realistic fiction full of awkward romance, this is the book for you. The motif behind this story is the feeling of first love and fighting 2y
Kiyomi.loose for second chances. It‘s seen throughout this novel that Arthur and ‘Box Boy‘ aka Ben both really want this to work out and are constantly fighting for their relationship and Arthur has never felt love before but if love is real than whatever he has with Ben is definitely it. (edited) 2y
MissYaremcio Oh! This looks so good! I am adding it to my to-read list! Great review Kiyomi! 6/6 2y

Dear What If It‘s Us,

It‘s not you. It‘s me. You are a cute, sweet, somewhat sappy teen romance story. But I am a cynical, middle-aged woman, and your story is a bit too saccharine sweet, too much teen drama, too Disney-happily-ever-after for me.

I appreciate the representation, but I found myself rolling my eyes too many times. I can‘t pan it, because it was too sweet, but this book was too YA for me.

I decided to do the #100day challenge (1 mile a day for 100 days). I thought it‘d help me start a good habit the last quarter of this year. And so I broke down & got an Apple Watch. Something about making the circles close is rather motivating.

So since I was starting #100days today, I decided to make it more fun by #audiowalking. I needed a romance for my rapid readers September board.

It‘s a win-win-win.

Some photos from my #audiowalk

Jen_Reads I got an Apple Watch a few weeks ago because I figured it would keep me more active and it has. I‘m disappointed if I don‘t get a ring closed. 2y

Reggie So I gained 17 pounds in quarantine. In August I decided to do 16/8 intermittent fasting and walk. They say 10,000 steps is a pretty good goal. I would walk 3 miles and they‘d say congrats on 8-9000 steps. Holy crap what does it take to get the 10k,right? Well now I‘m back at work and forgot how much we walked. My first week I averaged 16k steps a day. Yesterday l, I found out I‘m back to prepandemic weight. So yayyy!!! Good luck to you on your 2y

Harry Potter aside, this is my first YA novel I‘ve read and I absolutely loved it! Such a fun read about first love amongst two teenage boys and the obstacles the universe throws at them. A thoroughly enjoyable read with wonderful and witty characters!

And for what it‘s worth, the sexual identity of @beckyalbertalli is irrelevant...she along with @adamsilvera, wrote a great book!

A few times, I almost bailed on this book. Each time, it was one character that appeared so desperate, jealous and clingy that I would want to stop. What kept me going was the other character's plot of the story and my general interest on how the end played out.

#bookspinBINGO still going for a blackout!

This is an adorable YA M/M summer romance. I know those are two things I usually avoid (YA and romance), but this was a sweet, well narrated #audiobook. Nothing earthshaking, but if you enjoyed Naomi and Ely‘s No-Kiss List, you‘ll probably like this too.

Oh my stars!!! This book was sooo cute!!! I loved every second of it. I am not sure why but as I was reading/listening I sort of imagined Kurt and Blaine from Glee, if they had met in New York or at college instead of in high school. The only problem with this book?!? It ended!!! I wanted more!!!! However I have to wait until 2021 to find out what happens. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!

Setting in the parking lot of my Library using the WiFi. While open, they've asked us not to linger. Which feels so weird.
Anyhoo about this book. I really enjoyed it. Sweet, Funny, and Hamilton references. But that ending. 😏 I'm giving it a Pick on the basis of supposedly there's a sequel. If not it's a So - So.
Now I must Google what to cook with the eggplant I got at the farm stand.
