Categories: Book Reviews, Cornerfolds, Wrap Ups

Hi everyone! I thought I would post something every month to let you know what books I have reviewed over at Cornerfolds (just in case you missed them). This way, I can have all of my reviews added to my review index and they can all be accessed easily from one place. Since I have only been a part of Cornerfolds for about a week, there is only one review to recap this month. But moving forward, I should have about 4-6 reviews posted on Cornerfolds each month.

In November, I reviewed:

Cornerfolds Wrap Up November 2016Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, Michael Crouch
Published by Balzer + Bray on April 7th 2015

6h 45m
William C. Morris Award Finalist
A National Book Award Longlist Title
Everybody is talking about Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda!
"A remarkable gift of a novel."—Andrew Smith, author of Grasshopper Jungle
"I am so in love with this book."—Nina LaCour, author of Hold Still"Feels timelessly, effortlessly now."—Tim Federle, author of Better Nate Than Ever"The best kind of love story."—Alex Sanchez, Lambda Award-winning author of Rainbow Boys and Boyfriends with Girlfriends
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 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.
Incredibly funny and poignant, this twenty-first-century coming-of-age, coming out story—wrapped in a geek romance—is a knockout of a debut novel by Becky Albertalli.
