December 1st - #adventrecommends Day 1

My first recommendation for is What If It's Us by Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera. This was the first book I read in 2019 and I absolutely loved it. I would also recommend any other Becky Albertalli book! 🤗

#bookreport - Finished What If It's Us this week - I liked it, but wasn't completely sold on the ending. Narration was absolutely fantastic though. Still working on all the rest.

I‘m pretty happy with this much reading time for this busy weekend. #mrbook1inamillion #litsypartyofone #24b4monday.

This is a sweet queer first love YA book. The characters are fun high school seniors. I loved the parts about singing karaoke and musicals. If you‘re looking for a light read in the YA romance genre, this is a good choice.

Thanks to all the hosts for a fun event!

Spent my morning listening to this on #hoopla while working on my blog and I love it so much so far! I laughed out loud hard at the made up Hudson Panini name. I want happiness for both Arthur and Ben, but Arthur with his musicals and determination to make his office mates into friends speaks to my soul. #audiobooks

I finally finished this audiobook today. I really hoped this would be a great read. But oh. my. god Arthur is soooo annoying. He‘s melodramatic, immature, self-centered, and whiny. There were so many “problems” in their relationship that weren‘t actually problems at all. I get that YA novels can be immature, but this was a little too petty. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

What a great end of summer read before school picks back up next week. Such a cute YA romance, with an easy to follow storyline and many "smile while reading" moments. Definitely recommend this one (especially if you listen to audiobooks- the readers are great)!

I'm bailing. There's nothing wrong with the writing, in fact I've loved other books written by these two, but this isn't doing it for me. YA is really hit or miss for me and I'm encountering more misses the older I get. 🤷‍♀️ #itsnotyouitsme #probably

"I believe in love at first sight. Fate, the universe, all of it. [...] I just think you're meant to meet some people. I think the universe nudges them into your path." ~ Arthur ?

I am so glad I finally picked this one up last month! The last third fell a bit flat for me, but overall I really enjoyed this book. I love the writing and the characters, and the story is so adorable! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Ok, it's time for a confession... Like Ben, I have never listened to Hamilton. 🙈 I know, shame on me.

Reading this book really makes me want to, though! Arthur's enthusiasm and Ben's reaction finally convinced me that I've been missing out. 😁

THIS WAS AN A AMAZING BOOK! It really pushed past all the stereo typical views on gay people, as a bisexual myself, I was so satisfied with this book. It‘s definitely a fluffy sappy book so if you don‘t like that then don‘t read it. It‘s very slow in the beginning but it gets faster as you read more!

#pop19: Book with a question in the title

This ended up being a so-so, leaning toward pick. Lots of funny, quirky lines from Arthur. Ben's character left a lot to be desired, I thought. Kind of a weird chemistry between these two and the whole Jessie/Ethan thing wasn't really necessary.

BookHoarder32 I wanted a happier ending 🤷‍♀️ 7mo

So much this! One of my biggest pet peeves. People always call me Sam without asking. My name is SAMANTHA! I love when people actually ask me what I prefer.

RamsFan1963 My girlfriend's name is Katherine, but she prefers to be called Kate. She HATES to be called Kathy. We'd talked a lot online and I always called her Katherine. Our first date she told me to call her Kate, but never ever Kathy lol 7mo
sammisho @RamsFan1963 I have become resigned to people calling me Sam...I can't stop it. I introduce myself as Samantha and they say "nice to meet ya Sam" every time. Sammi is for family ONLY and I will correct someone for that! 7mo

Arthur and Ben meet at the post office. Then they lose each other. Then they find each other. And maybe it was meant to be.

I truly wanted to like this book. Sadly, the “search” part of the story felt unnecessary, and the romance itself was WAY too awkward and complicated. I could not root for the characters, because I did not feel they should be together. The friendships are much more satisfying and might make the book worth reading.

I had high hopes for this book as a cute gay romance, but I‘m now a bit disappointed. More than a hundred pages in, I‘m getting frustrated by the slow pacing and way-too-YA writing style.

Such a cute story. SO FLIPPIN ADORABLE.

I‘ve been off YA for a long time because a lot of it feels juvenile and meaningless but the relationships and flawed yet real characters in this definitely mark it as something not only unique, but something worth reading.

The conflicts in this are so important and I do think the ending was a fitting one. Perhaps an unconventional happy ending in the realm of romantic YA, but certainly still a happy one.
