Reread : Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met. 

We talked about this one in 2015 here X and again back in December here X, so i’m guessing by now, you guys know how much i love this baby. 

This book is definitely one of ny favorite book of all time. it’s fun, it’s sweet, it’s freaking adorable. i only have love for this one. It’s perfect in every ways possible. 

I want a best friend like Simon please. He’s a great main character, so fun to follow around.

Also, the geeky aspect is such a nice little touche. Very relatable. 

I want mooooooore

Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda : 5/5

Review : Our Dark Duet (Monsters of Verity #2) by V. E. Schwab

KATE HARKER isn’t afraid of monsters. She hunts them. And she’s good at it.
AUGUST FLYNN once yearned to be human. He has a part to play. And he will play it, no matter the cost.

Kate will have to return to Verity. August will have to let her back in. And a new monster is waiting—one that feeds on chaos and brings out its victims’ inner demons.
Which will be harder to conquer: the monsters they face, or the monsters within? 

Everything Victoria Schwab writes is magical. Simply magical. And this book was  absolutely fantastic. Flawless. From start to end, this book was an epic ride. It’s dark, it’s heavy, it’s entertaining as hell. And that ending is just heartbreaking and kind of perfect for this story even if it hurt to admit. My favorite part is the characters. I love them all. Kate and August are incredible. Both of them in their own way. There’s so much strength and sadness in these two main characters. The villain are amazing. Sloan may be one of my new favorite bad guys. He is so evil, so interesting, and i just love him. I can’t believe this is the end of the series, i want more. Her writing is just perfect. I’m such a big fan of her  style and she will always be one of my favorite writer. it’s beautiful, poetic and dark. I love it, i love her, i love everything about this story.

Our Dark Duet : 5/5

Reread : Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be. 

I already talked and review this book on the blog. But i just finished an other reread of it and had to let you guys know : Even after the third time, this book stays mind blowing.

I will never get bored of it. It’s like i fall in love all over again with the story, the writing and those characters. 

So, if you haven’t read it. Do it. Do it now.

My first review of this perfection is here : X if you want to see me fangirl about it.

Review : The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli

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? 

I think Becky Albertalli is my new queen of contemporary. Ugh, this was such a good book. The best part of it has to be our main character, Molly. She was fun to follow around. Her voice just sounded so true and human. She is incredibly relatable, very human with all her good and bad side. The side characters were are so fun too. It’s hard not to like Molly and Reid’s interaction. I found myself smiling a couple times at their jokes. the storyline was entertaining, was hooked from the start. it touches some topics we don’t see much in YA Contemporary and she did it well. Obviously, her writing was perfect full of awesome geeky references.

Oh, and Simon makes a tiny visit, that’s really all we could ask for. ❤ 

The Upside of Unrequited : 5/5

Review : Althea and Oliver by Cristina Moracho

What if you live for the moment when life goes off the rails—and then one day there’s no one left to help you get it back on track?Althea Carter and Oliver McKinley have been best friends since they were six; she’s the fist-fighting instigator to his peacemaker, the artist whose vision balances his scientific bent. Now, as their junior year of high school comes to a close, Althea has begun to want something more than just best-friendship. Oliver, for his part, simply wants life to go back to normal, but when he wakes up one morning with no memory of the past three weeks, he can’t deny any longer that something is seriously wrong with him. And then Althea makes the worst bad decision ever, and her relationship with Oliver is shattered. He leaves town for a clinical study in New York, resolving to repair whatever is broken in his brain, while she gets into her battered Camry and drives up the coast after him, determined to make up for what she’s done.
Their journey will take them from the rooftops, keg parties, and all-ages shows of their North Carolina hometown to the pool halls, punk houses, and hospitals of New York City before they once more stand together and face their chances. Set in the DIY, mix tape, and zine culture of the mid-1990s, Cristina Moracho’s whip-smart debut is an achingly real story about identity, illness, and love—and why bad decisions sometimes feel so good. 

I don’t say that alot when i review of books, but i’m gonna say it here : I hated this book.

i expected  cute romantic story of two best friends falling in love but what i got was a toxic relationship with some of the worst characters ever.

Lets talk about Althea first, because she is one of the main reasons why i dislike the book so much. She is annoying, selfish and really just a walking cliché. I mean, the boy you love puches you away and you dye your hair black…c’mon?!

Oliver is not that bad, i liked him better than Althea and enjoyed his side of the story a tiny bit more . His conditions add an interesting side to this story.

We gonna get into spoilers now people, so if you don’t want to read any, stop now.


So, what pissed me off the most about this book was that part : “Althea makes the worst bad decision ever” because what you don’t know when you enter this book is that this bad decision is a rape. Yup, during one of Oliver’s episode, when he’s only half himself, Althea decides to go have sex with him even if he clearly didn’t want too. That’s rape, and if Oliver was the one taking advantage of Althea, things would have been worst. And obviously poor, little Althea is the one who needs to get away after all that. *rolls eyes* and than :

Lets just say after that, the book got even more boring and i just had to skipped a couple chapters. I wanted to stop reading all together but i needed to see if Oliver would be doing something about his rape.

He doesn’t not. 

They end up realizing they are better off friends.

i’m giving it 1/5 because i like the writing style. That’s all.

Althea and Oliver : 1/5
