Hello fellow bloggers,
Last month I read Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli and loved it! After finishing the book, I went to her website and saw that you can email her and ask for signed swag and bookmarks. So that’s what I did. I emailed her saying how much I enjoyed the book, thanked her for writing it and asked for personalized swag. She responded and today I received her mail! I’m so happy and thankful for not only the gifts, but also that she took time to read my email.
This is what I got in the mail! First, we have two super cute stickers (the speech bubble and the book cover in the left corner) that I need to find a special place for. If you have any ideas what I could put them on, please let me know!
Next is a really pretty drawing of Simon and Blue that I will not show because it spoils Blue’s identity. But on the back of the drawing it says “S + B ♥ Marina“. Marina ♥ S + B too. A LOT. Last but certainly not least, a bookmark and a tattoo that say “the tumblr” were included. “The tumblr” is a website that the people in Simon’s school use to send anonymous messages. It sometimes leads to disasters. I can’t wait to use the bookmark, because you can never have to many bookmarks. Ever.
So this is it! Becky is such a sweet person, I already tweeted her saying thank you, but I wish I could thank her 273 times. This means so much to me. I’ve recommended Simon multiple times now, but if you haven’t read it yet, do it. You won’t regret it.
