2019 Best Covers

We are already in December! (I feel like I do this every single month… the passage of time baffles me tbh)

There’s less than a month left of 2019 so I decided to start a series with the best of the 2019 releases

We are starting with COVERS because I’m an aesthetic bitch and I love a good cover…

Do I have any kind of system or ranking? No. I’m like a crow who hoards shiny things, they are all important

Quotes and ranting to: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens agenda by Becky Albertalli

In honor of a fantastic movie I STILL can’t watch in theatres (though there are a lot of countries where the movie won’t get a single showing and I hope things get better for you all out there) I decided to do a little something to spread my love for Love, Simon.
