I Love this book. When I read it I was a bit over coming out stories but this one was written so well you cannot help but root for him, I was fully enthralled by the story and my heart was full when it was over.

I ended up really liking this book, but it took me to almost halfway to be hooked. Once I was I couldn‘t put it down, though. Looking forward to checking out the movie version next!

I‘d never actually read this book so pride month felt like the right time. it‘s cute, like the movie, still hate the black-mailed into coming out thing but Simon and Braham are very cute together.

So, I tried to read only from my bookshelf this month.
📚
These ⬆️ are all the physical books I read in March (and only 3 ebooks). I think I did pretty well sticking to it.
📚
Tagged was my 2nd fav book this month, I REALLY enjoyed it and immediately watched the movie afterwards and LOVED that too!
📚
I enjoyed every one of these books except for All Your Perfects. That book was...well just not enjoyable.

I absolutely love this book. That's it. That's the post. Oh, wait. Here's a quote :
"Why is straight the default? Everyone should have to declare one way or another, and it shouldn't be this big awkward thing whether you're straight, gay, bi or whatever"
Another one?
"That awkward moment when you realize you‘ve been making gay jokes in front of your gay kid for the last 17 years."
Just read this book already. Thanks.

Another #YA book I read during the pandemic. I thought it was interesting how the book version started in a different place than the movie (at least in my memory of the movie). I can understand why. It would not have worked that way on the screen. I loved both book and movie.

Finished this one at a mall parking lot while my boyfriend took a very much needed nap😹 I liked the book in general, it‘s entertaining! I do have some issues with some of the things it mentions, with them being either forced or loosely used terms and sentences. All in all, it was fun!

Oh I loved this so much. Its sweet, cute and often hilarious. The plot is well done and briliantly written. It builds to the most perfect ending that fitted with the story. I loved all the emails interspersed amongst the story adding that extra and often hilarious depth to the story. Simon is just instantly likeable and by the end I was in love with him too. You want him to get everything he wants. 5*

I read this in two sittings because I was enjoying it so much. It is so sweet but doesn't shy away from addressing issues such as bullying or homophobia.

I enjoyed the writing style especially having some of their emails to each other included. Just a really good book.

#TBRPile 📚 Simon Spier is sixteen and trying to work out who he is - and what he‘s looking for. But when one of his emails to the very distracting Blue falls into the wrong hands, things get all kinds of complicated. Because, for Simon, falling for Blue is a big deal...

I‘ve watched the film adaptation of this book a couple times and really enjoyed it. It‘s always my goal to read the book first, but I don‘t know why I place that priority on myself, because I really enjoy the way a book stays rooted in the MC‘s head in a way film is hard-pressed to capture - even when DMs are involved!

This book is really sweet--there is just no better way to describe it. It addresses serious issues like bullying and homophobia, but it is a young adult book that leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy.

Awww is the first word that comes to mind. I felt so much for Simon. Your high school years suck in general just trying to navigate the social sphere on top of emotions you aren't equip to handle. I find a true connection in the middle of all of that was the highlight.

Becky Albertalli came out as bi yesterday in a medium post. 💖💜💙 No one should be forced out this way.

“Imagine hundreds of people claiming to know every nuance of your sexuality just from reading your novels. Imagine trying to make space for your own uncertainty.”

https://t.co/NXaiTNUxD8

That-Bookish-Hiker That sucks she was outed and treated like this. I don‘t think about an authors sexuality when I read a book. It‘s irrelevant to me and I can understand why people would be upset but the way this all happened is gross. Why are people comfortable asking about people sexual preferences? Focus on other things that make that person them. 2y
erank58 This is just so heartbreaking to read...no one should ever be forced out like this, no matter the circumstances. My heart goes out to her 💖💙💜 2y
ravenlee I don‘t understand the public‘s obsession with celebrities‘ (of any variety) sexuality. Why is it anybody‘s business at all? All the actors and authors who feel they have to publicly announce the most private information because of that pressure...I just find it truly reprehensible. 2y

Scochrane26 I follow her on insta & read this yesterday. I agree with the above opinions, & it also sucks because she has young kids who I hope aren‘t aware of all the publicity/questions she has had to put up with. Trolls choose to forget that people have families. 2y
corycatelyn I wasn't even aware that people were questioning her sexuality and I also never thought about it when I read her books. It's sad that people can't just leave well enough alone. Coming out is hard enough but feeling like you have to explain yourself first is just terrible. 2y
marleed I think we‘ve come so far and then I‘m reminded we have so much further to go. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick It's ridiculous that anyone feels the need to explain their sexual preferences for the public. I feel sorry for Becky. Yes, authentic voices are important, diversity is important, but not to the detriment of someone's personal life. If some is out & proud, great! Very cishet, great! Otherwise, just read the damn book or don't. 2y

What to you do when your being blackmailed and talking to someone who could potentially be the love of your life? A question Simon has to figure out.

I read/listened to the English version. Its such a cute book with a cute ending.

In France, we were walking along these little green stalls installed on the wall. Each one filled with different items such as jewelry, journals, scarfs and books. It was at one of these stalls, I decided I wanted to purchase a book. I found this one, one I read before for 3 euros. I know a little french and I wanted to see if I could read it. I have yet to do so, but maybe one day.

Lighthearted and fun. The book alternates between Simon‘s story and emails he is sending to “Blue” someone at his school he is slowly falling in love with despite not knowing his identity.
I‘m loving YA/NA with happy endings lately.

I have a lot of feelings about this book. It was such a feel good movie- cheesy teenage rom-com with a happy ending. The book was the same. And I could probably give some in depth critique if I really wanted to but I enjoyed reading this book so much and loved the characters so much and it made me feel so happy that I refuse to say anything bad about it

This book was an immensely fun read. I liked it way better than I thought I would. I found it entertaining, witty, sweet, funny with all the right amount of sappiness and clichés. I look forward to reading the other stories by Albertalli. This is the kind of book that just brightens up your mood after a tiring day. A pleasant read.

Scochrane26 I liked this one better than her others in the Simonverse, but that may just be my opinion. 2y

This book was lovely and charming and all good things. From the characters to the dialogue, I found the entire thing delightful. Recommended for fans of YA who enjoy wit and happiness. Not recommended if you‘re looking for sci-fi, horror, or something completely unpredictable.
