MY HOUSE!

Just like Maddie, Pottermore put me in Hufflepuff! Way back when, I was convinced that I was a Gryffindor and I was so upset to find out that I was a Hufflepuff. Now that I’m a grown adult, I’m just like… yeah, I’m a Hufflepuff. There’s no question about it.

Oh lord… am I terrible person if I ignore all the actual people and bring back Dobby?


SIRIUS BLACK | A BOOK WITH THE BEST FATHER/MOTHER FIGURE

You know which book has parents that actually parent? Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Come to think of it, Leah’s mom in Leah on the Offbeat actually parents, too. I guess Becky Albertalli is good about that. 🙂

SEVERUS SNAPE | A BOOK WITH A REDEEMABLE CHARACTER

Holland in A Conjuring of Light. I have probably read at least 200 books since I finished that one and I’m still not over it.

ALBUS DUMBLEDORE | A BOOK WITH A GREAT MENTOR/TEACHER

There are so many great mentors and teachers in The Name of the Wind! Ben might be my favorite, though.

HEDWIG | A BOOK WITH A GREAT ANIMAL SIDEKICK

Definitely Mister Kindly in Nevernight! Even if he’s not really, technically an animal. He’s close enough.

DOBBY | A BOOK WITH A CHARACTER WHO CREATED BAD SCENES ON ACCIDENT

Monty in The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is kind of a disaster, but I love him.

FRED WEASLEY | A BOOK WITH YOUR FAVORITE BROTHER/SISTER DUO

When I think of a book with great siblings, I think of Save the Date by Morgan Matson.

NYMPHADORA TONKS | A BOOK WITH THE BEST FAMILY FEUD

I can’t say that I really read a lot of books with family feuds in them, but there is a bit of a feud in Starry Eyesso maybe I’ll go with that.

CEDRIC DIGGORY | A BOOK WHERE A CHARACTER DIED TOO YOUNG/TOO SOON

I don’t know that there’s a way to answer this one without spoilers, so I think I’m going to skip it!

REMUS LUPIN | A BOOK WITH YOUR FAVORITE SHAPESHIFTER

Other than Harry Potter, I’m not even sure that I’ve read a book with shapeshifters.

Book review: What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera

What If It’s Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera
Rating: ★★★★★
Links: AmazonTBD • Goodreads
Publication Date: October 9, 2018
Source: Purchased

Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.

Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.

But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?

Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.

Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.

But what if they can’t quite nail a first date . . . or a second first date . . . or a third?

What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work . . . and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?

What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?

But what if it is?

It means it’s seven thirty on a Saturday night, and I’m four stops away from the first act of my love story.

In case you hadn’t noticed, I have been screaming about this book for the last… year, maybe? As soon as it was announced, I knew I would love it. I was even more convinced when I read the synopsis and saw the cover. It showed up at my house and I immediately locked myself in my bedroom and started reading. I wish I could’ve just read straight through, but ugh, work. 🙄

I don’t even know where to start because I just loved this book so much.

  • I loved Arthur. I want him to be my best friend and go to musicals with me.
  • I loved Ben. I want him to be my other best friend and go to Lorde concerts with me.
  • I loved Arthur and Ben together. They were so cute. SO CUTE. I am almost crying right now thinking about how much I love them.

There were so many things that happened in this book that I related to.

  • “Who is he? Name. Address. Social security number. Twitter and Instagram handles.” ACTUALLY ME WHEN MY FRIEND MEETS SOMEONE, OKAY? ACTUALLY ME. (Also my friends when I’m hanging out with someone new.)
  • “Just write a post that describes the moment, like, Hey, we met at the post office and made out inside a mailbox, so on and so forth.” ALSO ACTUALLY ME WITH THE EXAGGERATIONS, I CAN’T HANDLE IT.
  • ARTHUR’S DAD’S POP CULTURE REFERENCES!! MY SO-CALLED LIFE! THE BREAKFAST CLUB! ACTUALLY ME!!!
  • He flings his arms around me before I can say hello, and now he’s just standing here hugging me like a cobra. THE MOST ME SENTENCE I HAVE EVER READ IN MY LIFE, THIS IS ME IN ONE LINE

Honestly, I have 29 quotes flagged in this book and I could keep going, but I’m going to stop now. Well, almost. Can I also say that I really want to read Ben’s book? I need it in my life. Can Becky and Adam publish that next, please??

Anyway, in summary:
Five stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Five hearts ❤❤❤❤❤
Five sobbing emojis 😭😭😭😭😭

I loved this book so much.
