About the Book:
Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda 

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.


Why I’m dying to see this:

Okay, so maybe this is cheating but I don’t even care.  This movie is based off a book, so I’m counting it.  I mean, I’ve been waiting on this movie for so long.  My daughter and I have been following the casting from the very beginning, and now it comes out in 2 months!  Two months, and one week away from my daughters 14th birthday!  We’re so excited.  (Plus, it’s something we love together so it’s great mom and daughter time, so that’s an added bonus for me.)

Who else out there is excited to see Love, Simon?


Event originally hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Recently picked up as Can’t Wait Wednesday on Wishful Endings.


About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.

  1. I so wasn’t excited until I saw the trailer. It thought it’d take the magic from out of the book. I think those last scenes in the trailer with ‘coming out as hetrosexual’ kind of sealed the deal for me though. Now I don’t know if it will get a Japanese release or when but certainly I’ll at least be downloading it if I can’t see it in theatres! : )


      1. I haven’t! I tried to read it before Upside of Unrequited but I wasn’t too into it. Becky Albertalli’s writing isn’t my thing… but I think I’ll be interested again if Love, Simon turns out to be really good – and it looks like it will be!!

    Okay so I haven’t read the book yet, but it is on my TBR and I haven’t watched any of the trailers because I’m so scares of getting spoiled but I am seriously SO excited for this movie! I absolutely loved Albertalli’s other book so I’m absolutely certain that I’ll love this book and it’s movie 🌸
