    Doesn't live up to the hype, sadly

    If there's one word that describes how I felt with this book, it'd be "underwhelmed." I know that's partially because of the hype and constant love for this book that's spread all over social media, but I just... didn't feel it. At times, I was actually bored with it. It wasn't a bad book, but it's not one I think I'll reread in the future. The book had some great moments. I loved that Simon had a life outside of his sexuality. He had interests and extra-curricular activities and friends - omg, so many friends. At times, it reminded me of my high school circle - friends dating friends, drama within the cirlce, etc. It was real and authentic, as was the voice of this book. His family was quirky but cool. But then there was so much this book lacked. Did Simon even have feelings? There was no serious panic over the blackmail. There was no serious panic over the Tumblr post during Christmas break. There was no real emotion, and I NEED emotion in books. I need to feel something. There was no real plot, no major action. Even the conflict was lackluster. Everything wrapped up too neatly and easily. It was so unrealistic. I live in the deep south. People aren't this accepting. (Some, yes, but the majority, no) It just all fell so flat. We walked through day by day life with Simon, watched him obsess over a boy while he had no other real feelings, and then we had this super lackluster Blue reveal. Like I said, it wasn't a *bad* book at all. I actually finished it, which says more for it than 75% of the books I attempt to read. It held my attention (for the most part), but about 160 pages in, it just started to falter. In all honesty, it didn't even feel like an LGBT book to me. It was just too light and breezy. It wasn't heavy, even in moments that could've (and maybe even should've) been heavy. For me, it's a one time read. If you're looking to branch into LGBT books, you can start here. It's not uncomfortable, and it fits the typical YA romance quota. Other people seem to absolutely love it.

    5 stars

    Simon Spier is gay, and not exactly out yet. The story opens with Simon being confronted by Martin, a classmate who has stumbled upon some email conversations between Simon and his anonymous internet friend, Blue. Martin threatens to out Simon and Blue unless Simon helps him get a date with the girl he likes. And thus, calamity ensues. We get to watch Simon and Blue falling in love (which is one of the most adorable things in the universe) and discovering what kind of person they want to be. Meanwhile, Simon has to deal with Martin (who is seriously annoying) and the chances of his friends and family finding out about his sexuality before he is ready. There are so many things to love about this book. The writing was quirky and funny and lighthearted, despite dealing with sexual identity and the acceptance (or lack thereof) of homosexuality in a high school setting. Important and serious topics were dealt with, but not in a way that made them feel like they were the only aspect of the book. Which is exactly as it should be. The LGBT aspects of the story were mixed right in with everyday things like discussions of Oreos and Simon's favorite singer, homework and drama rehearsal. Yes, Simon vs. is a story about a gay teen. But Simon is so much more than his sexual preference. Simon is....well, he's pretty much awesome. I think literally everyone can find something in Simon that they can relate to. Whether it's his sexual identity or his fear of his mom finding his dirty magazines, his odd sense of humor or his desire to be loved and accepted the way he is. Simon says things throughout the story that most of us have thought as some point in time, no matter our age, gender, race, or sexuality. Simon is in all of us. And he can help us to recognize that no matter who we are, we all just want a little happiness (and maybe some Oreos). I am normally someone who goes into a contemporary book kicking and screaming; I really don't enjoy romance and I have found very few contemporaries that I actually enjoy. But, boy oh boy, this one melted my ice cold heart. I still get a warm and fuzzy feeling thinking about Simon and Blue. I feel like they are friends of mine that I will never forget.

    FREAKING Simon vs Blue

    I LOVED IT SO MUCH!!! I finished it in a matter of hours. I couldnt put it down im so obssessed! Blues identity was so well hidden that it kept me guessing until the big reveal which was great because sometimes its so easy to read between the lines and spoil it on yourself. Simon and Blues epic love is so uncomplicated its refreshing. I loved everything about this book and cant wait to read the next Becky Albertalli book!!!

    Nothing short of amazing

    The writing, syntax, and diction in this book are all tremendous and allows the reader to become truly submersed in the world. The colloquialisms and vernacular unique to Georgia and Metropolitan Atlanta making their way into the book really drives home the realism (since the characters live and go to school somewhere in the Metro Atlanta suburban areas). And the use of electronic mail correspondences as short chapters to break up the monotony of the longer chapters and reinforce plot points is very clever. But, all technical aspects aside, the author truly encapsulates the experience and feeling of being a gay kid in Georgia in a situation where coming out isn't necessarily troublesome, rather, it's just more trouble than you feel like handling, especially when the decision is suddenly taken out of your hands. Nothing about the plot or the LGBT themes felt forced, which was nice to see. And this novel does a good job at handling and addressing different types of friendships and the complexities within (e.g. it's easier to tell new friends important secrets that could end friendships, because unlike friends that you've known since your childhood, if they react negatively, you won't lose years of a friendship). If I didn't know any better, I would think this was someone's journal turned best seller novel. This novel is smart to the point where it is almost self-aware and though I am sad it ended, I am happy with how it ended.
