Leah on the Offbeat is the final installment of Becky Albertalli’s Simonverse, featuring Leah, Simon, Bram, Abby, Nick and the entire Creekside squad (yes, that includes Martin).
I read Sadie, by Courtney Summers, back in January. Since then, the audiobook version won the 2019 Odyssey Award for Excellence in Audiobook Production as well as the 2019 Audie Award for Young Adult Audiobook. I decided to listen to the audiobook and I was blown away by it.
I’m working my way through Becky Albertalli’s backlist and picked up The Upside of Unrequited, which is book two of the Simonverse (Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is the first, and Leah on the Offeat is the third and final installment).
As an introvert, just the title of Malcolm Gladwell’s latest book, Talking to Strangers, was intimidating. However, this isn’t a how-to. The subtitle, What We Should Know about the People We Don’t Know, promises that the book will offer interesting and deep-dives into who we consider strangers, in a way only Malcolm Gladwell can. And Talking to Strangers delivers.
