Of course this was a cover buy. This art is so dang good, I can’t handle it. But what’s under the cover is so much better, it’s mind blowing.
I had looked at this book a couple times in both Target and Barnes and Noble, and finally grabbed it one day. It was in the middle grade section, so I knew it would be a relatively quick read for me. I was excited to read it, regardless.
Last year, my boyfriend and I went on a really cool road trip. We visited Cincinnati, tried tons of tasty food, and saw a zoo we’ve been watching for quite some time now. But before we went to Cincinnati, we stayed overnight in Point Pleasant, WV, the home of the Mothman.
I’m not going to lie to you and say that this book jacket isn’t 100% what got me interested in reading this. I saw a jean jacket looking sleeve with pins on it, and all but screamed this was made for me! Once I read the inside cover (after purchasing it) my thoughts were verified completely.
I had seen a couple positive reviews for To Be Honest floating around instagram, so I picked it up and finally read it! The cover color (my favorite teal) definitely helped convince me that I needed this book, and I’m so glad I read it.
Alright, I know I’m late, but I made it! I finally read Simon, aka the book that inspired Love, Simon, aka a huge deal. I read a bit about this when the movie was released, and saw that prominent figures (especially in the LGBTQ+ community) were buying out whole theatres so people could watch it. So I finally got my life together enough to read the book, and wow.
