Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda Blog Tour by Becky Albertalli

Hi all, and welcome to my tour stop for the amazing Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli! You’ve probably seen me raving about this book on Twitter, Goodreads, and possibly in my blog review as well. If you haven’t, well, you might’ve been living under a rock these past couple of weeks.

Anyway, I’m ecstatic to share with you some Oreo goodness and fabulous bookish giveaways for my SIMON tour stop! Here we go, friends.

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.

Simon Tour - Oreogasm

Personally, I am a huge Oreo girl myself. I’ve been eating these wonderful round goodies for snacks for as long as I can remember. Double-filling’s my favorite, because who can resist the yummy white, fluffy cream?

I eat Oreos the classic way, but sometimes when I can, I add a little twist. See, I’ve always been a fan of marshmallows (and other sweets), too! So this happens:

I stuff my Oreos with marshmallows (preferably the smaller ones, but we didn’t have any!), sometimes ice cream or whatever little sweets we have at home!

And then I dunk it in cold milk (those little Mickeys are actually ice). YUM!

  1. Aaah I love Simon so much! Have to reread this soon. =D And Becky is just the most wonderful person ever. I love talking to her on Twitter!


  2. I love seeing all the ways that people eat their Oreos! For sure I have never heard of putting marshmallows in them XD And I LOVE YOUR MICKEY MOUSE ICE CUBE THINGS. I DESPERATELY WANT THEM.

    I also love the fact that SIMON is getting so much love, as well as his own love for Oreos. Bless.


  3. I’ll confess, I don’t normally read contemp, but I’ve heard so many amazing things about Simon vs. that I probably will pick up a copy at some point. I’m actually on the fence with Oreos — so annoying to brush my teeth that night — but I absolutely LOVE Oreo ice cream. It’s fabulous.


  4. Ha, I love the addition of the marshmallows! Am I boring for eating my Oreos just the regular, old-fashioned way? Although sometimes, a nice cup of milk does the trick too!


  5. Gosh, how great are Oreos? Seriously. I’ve also used them in cooking before and they are delicious. So at this moment this book is VERY high up on my to-be-read list. Simply because it’s The Book Everyone’s Talking About. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy! :)


  6. Well now you’ve definitely got me craving Oreos Aimee! I never thought of adding anything to my oreo goodness though, so now you’ve opened up a whole new world of possibilities! I’m thinking Nutella Oreos. Because everything is better covered in Nutella:)

    And I MUST read this book. I’ve heard nothing but the most amazing things:)


  7. I have been hearing NOTHING but amazing things for this book. Gaaaah, I can’t wait to get a copy and just dive into it. I really want to know how oreos fall into the story :P I usually eat my oreos straight up! But I love marshmellow omg you’re a genius Aimee, I’m so going to add marshmellows to mine now :D


  8. lol this post is so cute <3 I love Oreas, I'm going to ask my mom to get them for me next time, now that you have reminded me – I'm excited to read this book soon, I hope it's as amazing as it sounds :)


  9. I’m absolutely DYING to read this one, seeing how much love it’s been getting including yourself. And Oreo’s! My goodness, I’m almost drooling on my keyboard now. The double stuffed ones are so hard to find in Australia, and once you’ve had double, you can’t go back to single ones, they feel so stingy. Thanks for the giveaway girls <3


  10. I NEED this book! Oh, it sounds so, so good! I seriously don’t think I have heard a bad thing. And oreos are delicious! Now, you will probably not like the way I eat oreos, for it has enraged people in the past but… I scrape off the icing, because I don’t have time for that. And then I shove all the cookies in the milk, and scoop them out with a spoon when they’re nice and soggy. This may indicate some sort of weird psychological thing, no? Very fun post ;)


  11. Okay, so I have a confession: this book had never been on my radar. UNTIL it practically exploded in the blogosphere (which is one reason why I love this community so much). And now I’m dying to read it! I’ve heard SO many amazing things! :)

    I’m boring with Oreos. I eat them with milk, but I don’t dunk them or take them apart. Heh.


  12. I WOULD BURST WITH SO MUCH LOVE FOR BECKY AND SIMONVS RIGHT ABOUT NOW! (Or have I been like this for weeks?) But, yeah, this is easily my most anticipated 2015 debut and I cannot be more excited to get my hands on a copy!

    PS. Marshmallows rock!


  13. The name of this blog tour…. DYING. <3 <3
    I have never thought to eat oreos with marshmellows! I'm totally going to try this!
    And this book deserves ALL THE LOVE. Thank you for sharing!!
