A beautiful summer romance || What If It's Us by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli

Title : What If It's Us
Author : Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli
Publisher : Harper Teen
Release Date : October 9th 2018
Synopsis :

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?

Book Expo Recap : Day 1 & 2 ( + Giveaway!!! )

Hello my fellow bookworms!!!

I've been missing in action for some time but you would have known why if you follow me on social media! I was on a 15 day trip to NYC, mainly for Book Expo and Bookcon, and it was absolutely amazing! I am finally back home - and jet lag is killing me - and I am so excited to share all of my stories with you.

Before we begin, I ma going to do the recaps as three parts : part one is of Book Expo, the next of Bookcon and then the recap of all my other NYC shenanigans. Today is the time for Book Expo stories, and stick by me if it gets long - I do go on when I tell stories - because there's a very exciting giveaway if you brave it all.

This year's Book Expo trip is a little extra special. It's the last one before I set off to college, and even though I am moving to the USA, and I'll be much closer to New York than now - in the same continent! gasp! - I guess future plans are a bit uncertain at this point, so I was kind of mentally preparing myself for a last Book Expo. Plus the trip rolled around at a time where I was kind of slipping into a bad mental health space, so it was a very welcome distraction. So to say that I was excited is an understatement.

An ultimate guide to YA books with mental health representation || Mental Health Awareness Month

It's Mental Health Awareness Month! So I thought of compiling a list of books with mental health representation and are neurodiverse. Special thanks to Inge and C.J. who helped me out in the exhausting search for titles. While I hope that you guys find some good recommendations, I am also aware that some titles might not be perfect, so feel free to let me know if I have mistakenly included any problematic books. And feel free to let me know the titles I have missed in the comments!
