Today is the best Tuesday of all the Tuesdays. It is the BOOK BIRTHDAY of More Happy Than Not! I’ve heard nothing but excellent things! Pick up a copy of More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera!!!
1. Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
Becky Albertalli is hilarious, kind, and an absolutely brilliant human being. If you didn’t already know that; I’m sorry for you. And you should go talk with her on her Twitter: @beckyalbertalli. Simon is a beautiful, authentic, and powerful novel about a cynical 16 year old AP nerd who’s super witty. He will make you laugh multiple times throughout the novel; and you’ll feel something sucker punch you as you watch him struggle with keeping his sexuality a secret. Especially when he’s being threatened for it to be revealed. Simon is not only a must read;but a must buy. There simply isn’t enough authentic LGBT+ representation in our media. We need movies and TV shows like Simon. I would personally prefer it as a movie.
2. Half Wild by Sally Green
Half Wild was a fitting sequel for Half Bad. It contained action, character development; and some seriously tear jerking LGBT representation. There isn’t enough LGBT representation in our media, as aforementioned. But we really need diverse action filled entertainment: Proxy is a perfect example. This book has two witches who are continuing their journey from Half Bad. Two seriously badass male young adult witches with EPIC powers. One struggling with his sexuality. One who knows that he loves the one struggling for sure…we need more of that. Badass epic characters where their sexuality is a part of them, but not all of them.
3. Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
I would love to see Hollywood do electricity powers; and more strong female characters.
4. Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone
Poignant. The type of power this book had was like shattering glass, and the glass hit your stomach and your heart. We need more diversity in how mental illnesses are portrayed in our media. Movie.
5.A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab
TV Show. I cannot begin on the epic writing of this book. Cannot.
6. My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
Optioned for a movie. Witty, authentic characters. Again with needing more authentic representation of mental illness in our media.
7. Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
We need more weird in the world. Movie.
8. Stray by Elissa Sussman
Think Maleficient and OUAT—TV show for sure.
9. Twisted Fate by Norah Olson
Underrated novel. I would like to see how the psychotic character is portrayed. Think of the most messed up thing you’ve ever watched and then multiply that by 10. Exactly. TV show.
10. Anatomy of A Misfit (2014 release)
The emotion in this book should be recognized. Movie of The Summer material.
What books do you want to be a movie or TV show this year?
