Happy 2019! Can you believe this marks the SEVENTH year Jen & I have been doing this book club? It's my longest running and most favorite tradition ever. I've been sick since the new year began so blogging this month has taken a backseat. I'm feeling much better thanks to lots of rest and tea so here I am to share the first BFBC read of 2019. What If It's Us has been on my radar for awhile since I'm a huge Becky Albertalli fan, but I'm trying to buy less books lately so it's just been on my radar with no action taken. When Jen texted suggesting this for book club, I was so excited. I'm waiting for my library hold to come in and then it's on. Thank you for joining us on this book club journey. Even if you've never read a book with us, just checking out our little slice of the internet is so cool. Now, let's get to reading.
What's it About?
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 nail a first date even after three do-overs?
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?
What if it’s us?
