Top Ten Tuesday’s: Book’s I Haven’t Raved About

Hey everyone! I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I’m on Spring Break now (yay!) so I will be hopefully posting more often. Today is Tuesday and that mean’s Top Ten Tuesdays! This wonderful meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Go check them out if you haven’t already 🙂

Top Ten Tuesdays

This week’s topic is:

Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While

I have so many books to rave about!

1) Simon v.s the Homo Sapiens Agenda

This book is amazing! I recently reviewed it but I don’t have the link since this is pre written. You definitely need to check out my review and read the book if you haven’t already.

2) The Survivors Series by Erin Hunter

This series is indeed aimed towards children. There are talking dogs for goodness sakes. It’s such a page turner! I just finished the last book of the first series. The ending was magnificent. If you’re not into children’s books, at least check it out for your kids/grandkids/friend’s kids.

3) The Harry Potter series

I guess I have raved about this enough… Oh well! I absolutely love the chemistry between the characters and how romance really comes into play. If you haven’t read this series, you need to ASAP.

4) The Fault in Our Stars

I have raved about this countless times. I love Hazel and Gus’s on going devotion and romance and how it grows. If you haven’t read this, you definitely should 🙂

5) Fangirl

Oh my gosh. I love Levi and Cath’s relationship! It’s beyond adorable. When I go to Starbucks, I think about Levi and his uniform for work. Contemporary fans should especially read this.

6) The Warriors Series

This is just like the Survivors but with cats. I read the series quite a while ago but loved it. There is definitely some violence just like in the Survivors series. If you or someone you know loves animals and fantasy, this is the book for them!

7) Wonder

This book is so inspiring. It’s a book all about a boy who’s born with a deformed face. You get to see his journey through school and what he experiences.

8) Paper Towns

This is another book by John Green but there isn’t much romance. It’s a story about what a crush on someone can make you do. It’s more of a suspense and adventure book. I definitely recommend it.

 


 

I think we’ll end it here. This post was just me fangirling over books and showing off impressive fan art. I hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday’s.

Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda (Book Review)

Hey everyone! Today it’s time for another book review. Many of you will be excited to hear that this book is for teenagers and not for tweens/children. The book is Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. It’s quite a unique book for me because it’s the first LGBTQ book.

Blog Graphic (1)

Name: Simon v.s. The Homo Sapiens Agenda

Author: Becky Albertalli

A little fun fact is that this is Becky’s first ever book. It’s also available in French! This amazing book was published last year (2015)

# of pages: 303

My Rating: 6/5 stars (It was honestly that good)

Goodreads Rating: 4.3/5 stars

Amazon Rating: 4.7/5 stars


 

Amazon Summary:

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 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.


 

My Thoughts:

This book is amazing! It’s hard to believe this is Becky Albertalli’s debut novel! Like I mentioned above, this was my first LGBTQ novel and I’m very impressed! Simon Spier is so darn adorable. His email relationship with Blue is absolutely adorable. Everything about this book is just adorable. I’m not going to spoil who Blue is, but when you do find out it’s like… POW!

Following Simon through his journey in this book is absolutely amazing. I really want to say more but I don’t want to spoil anything.

If you enjoy adventurous, suspenseful and/or romantic books, this is for you!

For those who have read the book, I have some good news that you may or may not know. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is going to be made into a movie!!!

They started working on it October of last year. There is no release date. Fox 2000 is going to produce it. Fox 2000 also produced book to film adaptions like Paper Towns and the Maze Runner.


That’s a wrap! Do you think you’ll read this book? If you’ve already read it, what are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews to come!
