      I can t decide if this is funny or sad, but I ve spent so much time wanting a boyfriend that I can t imagine not wanting one I can imagine saying I don t want one But I can t imagine it being true.I m really surprised to see so many positive reviews of The Upside of Unrequited from GR members who thought Holding Up the Universe was problematic To me, this is of the same This might be the author who brought us the wonderful and hilarious Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda, but these characters con [...]

      Ok, I m ready to write a full review of this now Maybe So many good things to say, so little time.Before I get into the quality of the book, let me just give you a breakdown of the diversity represented here because it was honestly incredible and this is the exact world that I want to see in YA contemporaries from now on Pansexual on page side character who is also Korean American Multiple lesbian side characters Bisexual side character Minor gay characters Jewish main character, side characters [...]

      Soa 4.1 average rating Heaps of praise filled reviews Fangirling galore I should ve liked this What the hell went wrong I feel like I read a totally different book I didn t see a swoony romance, or a relatable character, orch of anything really What I did see was a very f cked up way of discussing feminism and other social issues, intolerable teens, and a boy fixation that refuses To Disappear.emmareadstoomuch.wordpressSo let s get into it Unpopular opinion time CHARACTERSSo the main character o [...]

      So two things 1 I M SORRY I READ THIS SO EARLY I m honestly not here to brag or anything donthurtme But I know that if I don t review it now I will forget everything of ever and it will be embarrassing SO I ll keep this review spoiler free of course and brief 2 It s hard not to compare it to Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda I shall try I loved that book to freaking pieces and so I didn t love this one as much which is why it s just 4 stars But I feel like it s in the shadow of it s Big Bro so It [...]

      My April Owlcrate I m on the toilet at the 9 30 Club, and I m wondering how mermaids pee This isn t random There s a mermaid Barbie attached to the door of the bathroom here Which is a pretty odd choice for a bathroom mascot If that s even a thing Bathroom mascots.This book had me at those first few lines and yes I m weird and NO, I don t care I loved this book so much When I first read the summary of this book, I thought I probably won t like it Then I got it in my Owlcrate and said well, I sho [...]

    8. Emma Giordano on said:

      Thank you so much, Harper Collins, for providing me with a free copy of this book to review 4.5 stars I really really enjoyed this read I recently read Simon LOVED it so I was super pumped to pick up Becky s next work that comes out on my birthday This was an unbelievably adorable, cute, funny, fluffy, give you all the feels kind of read So like, what you would normally expect from Becky But speaking of Becky s other books, I would definitely recommend reading book Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agen [...]

    9. Trina (Between Chapters) on said:

      Absolutely amazing A new all time favorite.It means so much to me to see a character who looks and thinks like myself she s fat and has anxiety, both of which are own voices representation in a romance story because I 100% WAS Molly at 17, pining over unrequited crushes and feeling so much insecurity about pursuing them.Aside from Molly being one of the most relateable characters I ve ever read, the rest of the story held up There are so many important discussions about weight and sexuality and [...]

    10. LolaReviewer on said:

      Sex and relationships are important subjects Teen boys and girls are especially curious about them How does it work How does one get a boyfriend or girlfriend When is the right time for those two things Molly Peskin wants to fall in love with someone and for that person to fall in love with her back very badly, but she s scared Her sister doesn t seem to be daunted by anything she even got herself a really cute girlfriend in a short amount of time.Becky Albertalli did a fairly good job illustrat [...]

      I d rate this 4.5 stars.Becky Albertalli, how do I love thee Let me count the waysI fell in complete and utter love with Albertalli s first book, Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda see my original review I devoured it in less than a day, and it was a no brainer that the book showed up on my list of the best books I read in 2015.As you might imagine, the minute her newest book, The Upside of Unrequited, came out, I pounced I bought it at like 12 01 a.m on the day it was released I set my alarm and [...]

    12. Amber Robertson on said:

      Let s teach people that the only way to achieve high self esteem is by boys liking you back Yeah, how about no.I don t think this author and I are a match I m not sure I will enjoy her books I was so frustrated by the fact Molly was basically basing her self worth on her friends attempts to get her a boyfriend it overshadowed the rest of the plot Not only that, but I felt this book was incredibly childish I didn t enjoy the writing and felt myself cringing at the writing, especially the overuse [...]

    13. Cait • A Page with a View on said:

      This whole thing was hilariously real and wonderfully done Let me just lay out the these characters to start with Molly the main character She is obsessed with Pinterest, shops at Modcloth, is fat, Jewish, and has had 27 crushes without ever being kissed I absolutely LOVED her character When a guy tells her she s gorgeous for a big girl she just says fuck you A lot of her story focuses on getting a boyfriend, but it s of an analysis of the most relatable thoughts I don t entirely understand how [...]

    14. emi on said:

      2.75 5 starsI don t entirely understand how anyone gets a boyfriend Or a girlfriend It just seems like the most impossible odds You have to have a crush on the exact right person at the exact right moment And they have to like you back A perfect alignment of feelings and circumstances It s almost unfathomable that it happens as often as it does.I think there should be a law in place that bans terrible books, especially when they are a follow up to an incredible debut Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Ag [...]

    15. Kai on said:

      I want to know what it feels like to have crushes that could conceivably maybe one day turn into boyfriends This was once again a very honest and real story by Becky Albertalli The reason why books like Becky s resonate so much with teenagers and young adults is because in them we feel understood We are represented Our feelings and thoughts are valid We see ourselves in these characters, in their struggles and in their dreams.I also love that Becky talks this openly about sex And not just straig [...]

      During a night out with her twin Cassie, Molly meets a girl in the bathroom who she instantly knows is Cassie s dream girl The girl from the bathroom, Mina, and Cassie hit it off and Cassie manages to get Mina s number that night Molly is happy for her sister but at the same time Cassie s new relationship begins to make her think about her own lack of a love life and the growing distance between her and Cassie Molly is used to being the closest person to Cassie and has a hard time learning to de [...]

    17. Natalie Monroe on said:

      4.5 stars If I like a guy, I m supposed to tell him Maybe in Cassie s world, you can do that and have it end in making out But I m not so sure it works that way for fat girls So this review is going to be a little personal By that, I mean I m going to ramble and waste ten minutes of your time, depending on how fast you read Free feel to grab a bagel.When I was sixteen, the standard YA age, I was a painfully introverted kid Not the fun John Green kind, but the really sad kind that makes you feel [...]

    18. Whitney Atkinson on said:

      This started out so promising, but it just wasn t for me i thought i would be able to relate to it because fat mc with anxiety, but our personalities and insecurities were completely different and i found i actually really didn t see myself in molly at all the biggest problem, i think, is that this is a book i wish i d read 5 6 years ago now, i m beyond the part of my life where i m self conscious and awkward, so it did nothing for me to read about that.i wasn t a fan of the repetition of i m so [...]

      I AM MUSH, PEOPLE FUCKIN MUSH This book has made me flail with excitement several times I LOVED IT SO MUCH I don t think I m going to review this book What are reviews anyway Who decides they have to be coherent and whatnot My overexcitement alone shows how perfect every single page was for me and how much I loved it AND SO I WANT TO THROW THIS BOOK AT EVERYONE SO THEY CAN READ IT AND DIE OF CUTENESS AND HAPPINESS GAAAH MY BRAIN IS NOT FUNCTIONING RIGHT NOW OVER AND OUT

    20. Heather 'Bookables' on said:

      4.5 5Oh the adorableness Such a cute, diverse read I can see why so many people love this book It s so adorable and super diverse and the main character is so relatable This is a perfect summer read I did dock off half a star because so much cussing which honestly is just a personal preference and I did find the writing to be a tad to simplistic Other than that I seriously loved this book

    21. Chelsea (chelseadolling reads) on said:

      This book was mega cute Not as good as Simon in my opinion, but still so good And it was amazingly refreshing to read a book about a fat girl that actually accurately represents what it s like to be a fat girl and I AM SO ABOUT IT So great.

    22. Maureen on said:

      I m crying because that ending was so beautiful Alright this book I went in with really really high expectations and expecting that it would be a book of my HEART and I would relate a lot to the main character because of similar situations And I did relate Just not a lot Or as much as I had hoped Probably some of my disappointment very minor disappointment comes from setting too high of expectations BUT ON WITH THINGS I LOVED.The diversity in this book was A to infinity It was so natural and won [...]

      Adored this even the second time I can t wait for the world to meet Molly I ve never connected with a character this strongly before This was me in highschool

      It s official I want to marry Becky Albertalli and keep her in my pocket forever Creepy I ll tell you what s creepy how she can embody me into her books Because honestly I m Molly And I m Simon And I am very much in love with Becky Albertalli for creating these characters I can t seem to shake this perpetual awareness of being Molly Molly is so cute asjhdgwbsanxyw And she s fat but don t worry, it s not a book were she learns to accept herself or starts working out and eating healthier She s fat [...]

    26. Stacee on said:

      As soon as I saw Becky s name on the cover, I knew it was going to be something I would read, so I went into this not knowing anything about it.Love love loved Molly She s smart and insecure and funny and unsure I don t think I ve ever identified with a MCs inner monologue as much as I did with her Cassie and Mina and Reid and the rest of them were all fabulous, but this is 100% about Molly and Becky portrayed that perfectly.I m a huge fan of positive and present parents and Nadine and Patty wer [...]

      This review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books My face hurts from smiling so much The Upside of Unrequited is the cutest book to ever cute.It was a fantastic coming of age story about learning to accept yourself Filled with diverse characters, sisterhood, and concerns people go through every day, it was a terrific portrayal of real life.Upside is Becky s second book, her first being Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda, one of my favourites and also so ridiculously adorable It s hard t [...]
