Book Trailer Thursday (190)–Every Day and Love, Simon

It’s been almost a year since my last Book Trailer Thursday post! I’m trying to make my blog more of a priority since it’s an outlet that serves another part of my creative side while also elevating my voice as a teacher and reader.

Summary of Every Day (From Goodreads):

Today I have two movie trailers for two fantastic YA books! My students and I are eagerly anticipating the release of Every Day in February (adapted from Every Day by David Levithan) and Love, Simon in March (adapted from Simon vs. the Homo Sapien Agenda by Becky Albertali). Based on the trailer, Every Day looks like it is also including aspects from Another Day, which is the same story told from Rhiannon’s point of view. I’m curious about Love, Simon since the trailer never mentions another important character, Blue. It will be fun to see both movies and compare!

Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.

It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day. 

Summary of Simon vs. the Homo Sapien Agenda (From Goodreads): 

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now Simon is actually being blackmailed: if he doesn’t play wingman for class clown Martin, his sexual identity will become everyone’s business. Worse, the privacy of Blue, the pen name of the boy he’s been emailing, will be compromised.

With some messy dynamics emerging in his once tight-knit group of friends, and his email correspondence with Blue growing more flirtatious every day, Simon’s junior year has suddenly gotten all kinds of complicated. Now, change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.
