Here’s the thing: this was the very first lgbtqia+ book that I've ever read. I was 16 years old and forever I will associate this story with the genuine feeling of connection, the comfort of realizing your experiences are universal, and the loveliness of knowing that you have a community. I remember finishing it the first time and thinking how wrong it felt that everything looked the same, as if the world should have register ...more

And I seriously didn't want to read this. I mean, why would I? I don't particularly like cutesy romances, LGBT or not. The cover is kinda sucky and not attractive. The title is an inside joke that only makes sense after reading the book. And, let's be honest, it's always easier to convince me to read books with phrases like "mind-bending twis ...more
New Review (June 2017): Just finished my third or fourth reread of SIMON VS., this time on audio which is narrated by the amazing Michael Crouch, and wow, I love this book more each time. I'm 27 right now and SIMON remains the book I wish I had 10 years ago.
The first time around, I liked this book. It was cute, it was fun, most of all it was real. I liked the story and the characters, but I didn't connect with them. For me, it was a nice book, but not an outstanding one and I really didn't get the hype about it. I had also figured out who Blue was after less than half of the novel, which kind of took the excitement away from reading it.
It tasted like a hot cup of coffee in early spring,
it felt like warm summer rain caressing your skin,
it was as beautiful as a colourful sunrise in September and
it smelled like a clear night sky in the middle of a cold winter night.
In short: It gave me all those awesome fluffy, cozy and happy feels!! ! =)))
I loved everything about “Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda”! From the bands and the music that was mentioned throug ...more
It has been ages since I stayed up late reading a book, propping my eyes open just to keep going. This book had me up at 2AM wanting to find out what would happen to our precious Simon. The family relationships were fantastic, the friendship dynamics were really well done, the musical was too much fun, I loved that the romance took place over the internet, I just completely soaked it all up!
If you're looking for a very readable, very happy, super fun book PLEASE ...more
This review contains *spoilers*.
If you love Oreos or waffles, boys kissing, and overall cuteness then please read this wonderful story, I promise that you won’t be disappointed.
This is the kind of book that I had to read in one sitting while eating the best snacks and listening to my current favorite song because it was just fun fun fun.
I’m still in a happy daze.
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda follows sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier, who prefers to save his drama for the sch ...more
“Why is straight the default? Everyone should have to declare one way or another, and it shouldn't be this big awkward thing whether you're straight, gay, bi, or whatever. I'm just saying.”
Look, this book started very slow for me. And I was very very hyped for it, for obvious reasons. Everyone has been talking about it for months, everyone is crying about it for months, there is a fucking movie about it, I mean, come on, I had high hopes. But for the first 150 pages I was ...more
I DO NOT KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS BOOK. AT ALL.
And the fact that I am the last person in the mapped universe to have read it is not helping me define my emotions.
In fact, it is actually only informing me that my feelings should be “THIS BOOK IS AMAZING IT IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER READ IN MY LIFE IT’S ADORABLE ...more
I an't even with how freaking adorable this is. It's been 3 years since I first read it but I just...😍I seriously ended up smiling like nothing else for those last chapters. The cute'o'meter is broken, ok. This book BROKE it. It just makes me so happy...but also balances that with a lot of anxiety through Simon being blackmailed.
I think books just get the 5/5 when they make you feel all the things.
(Also it's SO much fun rereading and knowing who Blue is!! Blue is frikkin ADORABL ...more
‘‘It’s you,’’ I say.
3 stars? 3.5 stars? I’m honestly not sure. Prior to reading this novel, I had read maybe five, six, seven reviews that upped my anticipation like crazy. They all mentioned how ‘‘cute’’ and ‘‘adorable’’ this novel is. And it’s true. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda becoming a New York Times bestseller and would actually ...more
I'm hardcore grinning right now. This story needed to happen and I couldn't be more thankful. I love this book so much it nearly undoes me. Every corner, every syllable, every page, every email of this book made sense. Every second I spent reading this book was worth it. This is the first gay romance book I've read and the romance was so cute I'm jumping and screaming my lungs out. ...more
Simon felt like a real person. His voice was so genuine and honest. And Blue is the most precious person ever.
I can definitely see myself rereadin ...more

I adored this book just as much as I did the first time and I read it in one sitting, again. So It is STILL an all time favourite. What a blessed book. Keeping my OG review bc it's actually good.

((Screams to the sky: why did I wait so long to read this?!?!))
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is a true gift to the world.
There really isn't too much I can say about this book that hasn't already been said. I think pretty much everyone knows the premise, so I won't reiterate that here.
What I do want to touch on is how this book made me feel. I have been in a long-term relationship for just over 11-years.
In the beginning, we were long-distance. A lot of our initial 'getting to know you' was ...more
and i know, no matter how many times i re-read this, it will forever feel like coming home. <3

I LOVED this book. Loved, with no ifs, ands, or buts.
I don't often read YA for a few reasons. For one, there is nothing I hate more than silly drama, and I feel like so often YA authors resort to petty fighting or similar antics to put a "twist" in their plots. That makes me grumpy, and a grumpy Heather is a low-rating Heather. I don't like to give low ratings.
I love Simon Spier so much my heart is ready to burst. Also, I’m now fully prepared to go see Love, Simon a second time

Original review 9/12/16:
This was so adorable people are giving me looks on the train because I'm grinning in a possibly frightening level of happiness. I loved this.
-“White shouldn't be the default
any more than straight should be the default.
There shouldn't even be a default.”
-“I’m too busy trying not to be in love
with someone who isn’t real.”
-“It feels like we’re the last survivors of a zombie apocalypse. Wonder Woman and a gay dementor. It doesn’t bode well for the survival of the species.”
-“The closest thing I’ve ever had to a journal
is probably you.””
If this beauty is any indication of how 2017 is going to turn out, ...more
Not much to add. Loved this just as much the third time around! Still warmed my heart. The audio narration was really great for Simon, my only gripe is that the narrator read all the female characters in the same unamused sounding voice which usually didn't fit their emotions.
Original Review (2016):
This book was SO good. There are 10 million great things I could say about this book but here's the shortlist:
-It kept me up til 6 am to finish the whole thing.
-It made me cry ...more
I loved this! No idea why I seem to stay away from contemporaries because all the ones I’ve read this year I’ve loved!
Simon was a wonderful character. He is kind, sweet and hilarious! After seeing a post on Tumblr, Simon starts up an online email relationship with another person - Blue, that way both can keep their identities hidden.
This doesn’t last very long until another person finds out about these emails and uses them to blackmai ...more
