Aaaaaaaand I’m back with a migraine in the morning. Yes, I woke up with a really bad migraine but I didn’t end up calling out today because of the meetings I have to prepare for this week. Ugh no me gusta.
But maybe I’ll have to start listening to more Anitta because she is one of my fave artists ever! Have you heard or watched her music video Me Gusta? It’s amazing. Gif above is from the music video. Look at the vibrant colors though. Gorgeous.
Thanks to Dini @ Dini Panda Reads, I’m adding Goodreads Monday to my weekly meme schedule, and I’m excited to do this one. This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners and it invites you to pick a book from your TBR and explain why you want to read it.
Super Fake Love Song
by David Yoon
Publisher: G. P. Putnam’s Sons Books for Young Readers
Release Date: November 17, 2020
Genre: YA Contemporary Romance
From the bestselling author of Frankly in Love comes a contemporary YA rom-com where a case of mistaken identity kicks off a string of (fake) events that just may lead to (real) love.
When Sunny Dae—self-proclaimed total nerd—meets Cirrus Soh, he can’t believe how cool and confident she is. So when Cirrus mistakes Sunny’s older brother Gray’s bedroom—with its electric guitars and rock posters—for Sunny’s own, he sort of, kind of, accidentally winds up telling her he’s the front man of a rock band.
Before he knows it, Sunny is knee-deep in the lie: He ropes his best friends into his scheme, begging them to form a fake band with him, and starts wearing Gray’s rock-and-roll castoffs. But no way can he trick this amazing girl into thinking he’s cool, right? Just when Sunny is about to come clean, Cirrus asks to see them play sometime. Gulp.
Now there’s only one thing to do: Fake it till you make it.
Sunny goes all in on the lie, and pretty soon, the strangest things start happening. People are noticing him in the hallways, and he’s going to football games and parties for the first time. He’s feeling more confident in every aspect of his life, and especially with Cirrus, who’s started to become not just his dream girl but also the real deal. Sunny is falling in love. He’s having fun. He’s even becoming a rocker, for real.
But it’s only a matter of time before Sunny’s house of cards starts tumbling down. As his lies begin to catch up with him, Sunny Dae is forced to wonder whether it was all worth it—and if it’s possible to ever truly change.
I mean…. I think it’s pretty obvious right?
Well, if you know me well enough, I think you’d know why it would be pretty obvious but yes! This is definitely something that I would be looking forward to reading and I totally spaced out on the publication date! It’s seriously coming out tomorrow? Wow that’s super fast?!
I don’t know what it is about the “fake it till you make it” mentality but sometimes it really ends up changing your whole life around the longer you end up playing pretend. And is it really worth it? Do you really end up wanting to change your life to be the person that you end up pretending to be and is it really because you want to impress the person that you are faking it for? I don’t know. Are you faking it for yourself? Should you fake it for someone else or yourself? I think about those things a lot.
In this case, it seems like a lot more fun than just pretending to be some sort of business executive because it’s rock and roll, right? And it’s teenage love, and it’s just a lot more fun with this situation.
I feel like a few of you have probably already read this one, and so you gotta let me know what you thought of it! Was it good? Was it okay? What’s the deets, fam? Let me know! Am I going to get myself a copy in the near future? Definitely! Am I going to read it before the end of the year? Probably not, but that’s okay! It’s still going to be in my possession and that’s really what matters, right? Right.
