Review #57: Love, Simon by Becky Albertalli

Hey Guys x

I picked this book up on a whim. I had never really planned on buying it even though I loved the film, just because I didn't know if I'd actually read it. But while shopping one day, I saw it in Foyles, and decided to just pick it up.

It's about a boy called Simon Spier who is a totally normal guy with a totally normal life. Except he's keeping a huge part of himself a secret from everyone he knows - he's gay. And the only person he can confide in is Blue, who he only knows through email. At first, anonymity works for them. But as Simon falls deeper and deeper for Blue, he decides that this is a part of his life that he doesn't want hidden. While trying to find the true Blue, can Simon keep his sexuality a secret from the people closest to him? Even when he's being blackmailed...?

Now, I reviewed the film version of this book, which you can read HERE, and I said that I absolutely loved it. With the book, I honestly didn't expect it to be as …

I really haven't posted that much during August, but I can never not do a 'favourites' post, so here it is! Tell me what your favourite things have been this month!

Favourite Movie (1): To All The Boys I've Loved Before


I reviewed this here, so feel free to check it out. But just to clarify, I completely loved it and can't wait to watch it again!

Favourite Movie (2): Me and Earl and the Dying Girl


I saw this for the first time this month, and I have no idea why it took me so long. All the way through the film, I was watching and enjoying, but it wasn't really affecting me. Then it got to a scene near the end of the film that I won't spoil. And I just lost it. It felt like until that moment, I hadn't really thought about the film in a deep way, and when I did, I realised how much of an impact it did have

Review #56: When The Curtain Falls by Carrie Hope Fletcher

Sorry it's been so long since my last review! I spent the month before reading this, re-reading the 'Twilight' book series and falling back in love with it. Yeah, it might be bad or problematic to some, but it's a great piece of escapism and I'm glad that I had the time to read it again. But then, I got started with this one.

If you've read my blog in the past, you might know that I'm a huge fan of Carrie Hope Fletcher as a person and a YouTuber, but this is going to be a completely unbiased review.

This book is about a play called 'When The Curtain Falls' that is taking place in two different times. The first time the production is done, we follow the love story of Fawn and Walter, an actress and the man that works behind the scenes. Their relationship is kept a secret and the fear of being caught is high. But in the theatre, nothing stays secret for long, and a tragedy happens as a result.
70 years later and the production is back. Onl…

To All The Boys I've Loved Before | Film Review

Hey Guys x

If you haven't heard about this film within the last two weeks, where have you been?! It's been getting so much press, and is already so popular, that I'm surprised at how many people haven't seen it yet!

It's about a girl called Lara Jean Song Covey. When Lara Jean falls in love, with feelings so powerful that she can't contain them, she writes letters. To date, she has written 5, to boys including her sister's boyfriend/ex-boyfriend and her ex-best friend's boyfriend. Lara Jean goes through life being invisible, with not a lot of friends, but she's completely happy watching Golden Girls with her little sister Kitty on a Saturday night. Until the day that her letters get out. Suddenly, Lara Jean's biggest secrets are out in the world, and there's nothing she can do about it...

I loved this film! I haven't loved a film this much in ages.

First of all, the story felt really relatable to me. Not that I write love letters to boy…
