This meme hosted by Bookshelf Fantasies is so cool! From the original post:
“Shelf Control picks will be books that I already own — either physical copies from my overflowing shelves, or one of the many unread titles elbowing each other out of the way on my Kindle.”
What will be included in each post is:
- Title metadata (essentially)
- How I got it
- When I got it
- Why I want to read it
Without further ado, I present you my first pick!
Title: What If It’s Us
Author: Becky Albertalli and Adam Silvera
Year Published: 2018
Synopsis: Arthur is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.
Ben thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be on his way to the post office carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.
But when Arthur and Ben meet-cute at the post office, what exactly does the universe have in store for them?
Maybe nothing. After all, they get separated.
Maybe everything. After all, they get reunited.
But what if they can’t quite nail a first date… or a second first date… or a third?
What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work… and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?
What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?
But what if it is?
How I got it: Shopping spree at Waterstones.
When I got it: Last year.
Why I want to read it: Many of my friends read this and they sold it to me as a soft, heartwarming queer romance. Ticks all my boxes, so I went for it!
