What Are You Reading Wednesday

Today I'm participating in my first blogging meme. It's called What Are You Reading Wednesday and it was created by Marissa, Rhianna and KendallI discovered it on Marissa's blog here

Book bloggers share the book/s they're currently reading and answer five questions about it. 

The book I've been reading over the past week is:

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli


  1. Why did you decide to pick up this book - cover or content?
I picked this book up for its content. I watched the movie trailer a little while ago and I loved it. I love coming of age stories with teen angst. I knew I had to read the book before I saw the movie. Below is the movie trailer:

  1. Who is your favourite character so far, and why?
I really like Simon, the main character. His voice is the perfect combination of humour, angst, naivety and heartache. 

I also really like Simon’s family and his group of friends. 

  1. Will you finish this one?
Yes. I actually finished reading it today and I LOVED it. I’ll be posting a review within the next few weeks. 

  1. Finish the sentence: This book reminds me of … (other books, movies, TV shows…) 
The movie G.B.F. G.B.F is about a gay teenager who wants to out himself in order to become the new ‘gay best friend’ of the popular clique. However, his best friend is forced to come out of the closet, much to both of their disdain. Below is the trailer.

  1. What type of read is this one? (Slow but interesting, cannot put it down…)
I read it at a slow pace, because I kept getting inspired to go off and continue working on my novel. When I really like a book, I don’t want it to end because it’s such a good book. I finally got around to finishing it because I wanted to find out how it ended. 


  1. Love that this book inspired you to work on your own. I keep wanting to pick this up and get distracted... Thank you so very much for joining us this week!
