My TBR Review | Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens agenda is the book that many have told me to read. I was a bit hesitant to pick it up because what if it doesn’t live to the hype?

He unleashes his demons who either drive the people of Arcadia mad or they don’t live to tell who did it, at least that’s how the story has been told throughout the years. One thing is certain the Gentle Lord must be stopped. Nyx […]

Have you ever read a book and thought “THIS IS MY LIFE WRITTEN ON PAPER FOR EVERYONE TO READ?” Well, How to Love is that book for me like I think Katie followed me for a while and gained inspiration from my life. Let’s get started, Reena has a bright future ahead of her, she’s about to graduate early and realize her dream of being a Travel Writer. She had it all figured out. Then Sawyer the boy she’s been in love with since before she could remember starts to hang out with her and soon they’re together.

So she does, she accepts it because she really likes him. Reena, in […]
