Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda - Becky Albertalli

I’ve heard nothing but great things for this book, and I’m really glad that for me, all the hype was worth it!


This book is really cutesy and adorable, and while writing this review, I have a huge dumb smile on my face from how cute this is! Simon is a main character that’s real. I’m not going to talk on about how special he is, or how great he is. I think you guys should read this for yourself.

“What’s a dementor?”

I mean, I can’t even. “Nora, you are no longer my sister.”

“So it's some Harry Potter thing,” she says.  

When I first started this book, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this. I was hoping that maybe it’d be a mystery or something. But this book is a whole lot of fun! And at some times, even though this book will go a bit deep, it’s still meaningful, and I feel like I learned so many things from this book just about feelings, and people. It’s really eye-opening.

But I’m tired of coming out. All I ever do is come out. I try not to change, but I keep changing, in all these tiny ways. I get a girlfriend. I have a beer. And every freaking time, I have to reintroduce myself to the universe all over again.



Okay, forgetting my obsession with Simon. I liked Simon’s friends and family. Another thing I liked was the little friendship conflict between Simon, Leah, and Abby. I know that sounds weird but it’s mostly because of the conversation towards the end. The interaction with the side characters in this book is so amazing! God, I want to reread this so badly! Even if this book did get slightly predictable, it was still enjoyable!


Overall, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is an official favorite of the year! If you haven’t read this then please do now. Obviously, if you enjoy LGBT and even if you don’t JUST READ THIS. (P.S. This book is really cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)


Thanks for reading my review everyone and hope you have a great day! Until the next one! :D
