Happy Friday, Savvy Readers! We hope you had a great long weekend. Now that our turkey (or tofurkey) hangovers have passed, let’s recap all of our favourite book news, links, and photos of the past week!
1. Love, Simon (aka Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda) Movie Poster Revealed
We LOVE the movie poster for Love, Simon that was revealed this week! Featuring Nick Robinson as the lovable Simon Spiers, the movie poster is reminiscent of the book cover that the movie is based on: Simon Vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. To make things even more perfect, check out the letter Becky wrote to Simon in her Instagram reveal post. So cute!
