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.
I’m re-reading this and yes, it’s still as adorable as it was the first time.

Everlasting by Elizabeth Chandler
A love that spans eternity
For Ivy, miracles are real. After all, it was a miracle this summer when she survived a near fatal car crash. And it was a miracle that Tristan, her boyfriend who died a year ago, returned to Earth as an angel. But Ivy knows better than anyone that miracles come at a price.
Even though Tristan has come back to Ivy, life is far from perfect. He’s a fallen angel – and he’s trapped in the body of a wanted murderer. With Tristan on the run from the police, Ivy’s not sure she’ll ever get her happy ending.
But when it becomes clear that Ivy’s worst enemy, the demon Gregory, is back to taunt her, it’s not just Tristan’s life that’s in danger. And Gregory is hell-bent on getting back what he wants: her.
Will Ivy and Tristan ever be safe to be together? Or has Ivy run out of miracles?
This book was just alright. It kind of reminded me of how much I loved reading Kissed by an Angel.
Everafter by Elizabeth Chandler
It seems the odds are forever against Ivy and her fallen angel. Tristan is still trapped in the body of an accused murderer, and as the two star-crossed lovers try to clear his name, they must battle the dark forces that would keep them apart and destroy them both. The danger is especially great for Tristan since, as a fallen angel, death would mean losing his soul. It’s up to Ivy to save the one she loves and, hopefully, find a way for the two of them to be together…for all eternity.
…. however this ending was such a disappointment.
Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen
The world is a terrible place not to have a best friend.
Scarlett was always the strong one.
Halley was always content to follow in her wake.
Then Scarlett’s boyfriend died, and Scarlett learned that she was pregnant.
Now Halley has to find the strength to take the lead and help Scarlett get through it.
Because true friendship is a promise you keep forever.
This was only the second Sarah Dessen book I’ve read. I didn’t like it as much as The Truth About Forever but it was still really good. Good enough that I ordered two more of her books.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I dunno… maybe Unforgiven by Lauren Kate?
What are you reading this week? Have you read any of these books? Let me know!
