Leah on the Offbeat (Creekwood #2) Reviews

  • Fuzaila

    So, just shut your ears out because you don’t want to hear me scream and rant off like a drunk grandma. I am so furious I want to fling the book right off to space and go hide in Jupiter till the steam evaporates off my ears. I kept turning the pages expecting some good sh*t to happen, and then I reach the acknowledgements page and I was like, the hell, THAT’S IT??? She ended the whole thing just like that??? Usually when I don’t like a hyped book, I’m like - what did I read wrong? But this time



    🚫 Her attitude towards Garret? Rude. He has a huge crush on her but she never once thought of telling him she wasn’t interested.

    🚫 Like, she was literally bouncing him on her knees, teasing him high.

    🚫 She was furious at Abby for teasing her, when Abby didn’t even know she was bi? Hypocritic binch.

    🚫 The way she lied to Garrett about attending his game, and not even clarifying with him later when Simon advised her to.

    🚫 I can tolerate everything, but lying that bad, and not even feeling guilty. NOT ACCEPTABLE.

    🚫 You know what her reason was for engaging Garret? She never before felt needed or liked. I. CANT. EVEN.

    🚫 She treated her Mom like TRASH. She never allowed her to speak for herself; she never ever gave her a chance to have a life. And her Mom is actually the sweetest person on the planet.

    🚫 The way she treated her friends Anna and Morgan. Yeah it was sweet and all at first, but then she drops them off like tissues and isn’t willing to forgive Morgan even when she apologized.

    🚫 And she actually compared Morgan to Martin?? Wtf? As if she and Martin were the bestest buddies before Simon happened!

    🚫 Also in between all the Morgan drama, SHE TOTALLY FORGETS ABOUT HER OTHER FRIEND ANNA. She doesn’t miss her, alright? But never gave her a chance to explain, never even wanted to acknowledge their friendship.

    🚫 Nick. Her conduct towards him and his heartbreak was IMPOSSIBLE.

    🚫 I mean, her best friend is having an epic meltdown right in front of her because he was dumped, and all she can think about is how soon she can kiss his ex-girlfriend????

    🚫 GOODNESS GRACIOUS. SAVE ME FROM THE POISON OF SUCH FAKE FRIENDS.

    🚫 Besides, the number of times she ‘swore to God’ made my head ache.



    Abby Suso



    🚫 I used to think Abby was a decent character, and I didn’t exactly hate her as much as I hated Leah, but she came off as a flat character tbh.

    🚫 All the time we’re being told, Abby is the perfect girl on earth.

    🚫 TOLD, NOT SHOWN

    🚫 The way she dumped Nick was bad, but I could understand her reasoning.

    🚫 What I couldn’t understand though, was her way of questioning her sexuality.

    🚫 This whole thing that goes like, I-am-not-bisexual-but-i-want-to-kiss-Leah-so-I-might-be was really confusing.

    🚫 And I wasn’t impressed by the way she avoided Nick and just left him hanging after her and not even caring, even if she said she did.

    🚫 I couldn’t care less though, because seriously, Abby’s character was underdeveloped and off-putting.



    • The biggest problem for me with this book was the bisexuality rep. Yeah, it was important but the rep in this book seemed so unrealistic and forced I just couldn’t wrap my head around it.


    🚫 In Simon Vs., we are introduced to Leah and Abby and they are the straightest people on Earth. But all of a sudden, Leah is bisexual and she has a HUGE crush on Abby and apparently she’s had a crush on her since forever.

    🚫 I mean, for someone whose face is so transparent, I can’t believe no one ever noticed it before? At least Simon must have said something, pried at her?

    🚫 It’s not like I didn’t know Leah was bisexual before reading this book. But I definitely didn’t doubt her heterosexuality in the previous book.

    🚫 After that, we’re again told Abby is bisexual and all of a sudden both of them are so in love with each other for no apparent reason.

    🚫 It felt to me as if Albertalli thought ‘Simon’s gay and everybody loves him, so why not make Leah gay too? Oh, she would need a love interest then. I could use Abby.’

    🚫 Like I said, too unbelievable and forced romance, it felt disgusting.


    • All through the book Leah is so pumped up and hyper, and I never felt at ease while reading it. The whole book was supposed to be cute and happy and fluffy, but all the time I felt tense and stressed.

    • Because, Leah is just so incessantly nagging about everything. She doesn’t exactly whine throughout the book. But according to her, she has the suckiest life in the history of lives that sucked.

    • Btw Leah also objectifies her body? I mean I don’t understand girls and their feministic attitude. They are always on edge when men objectify women, but calling their body parts names is alright when they do it? Eek.

    • Speaking of women and bodies, this book was also supposed to deal with Leah being overweight. If that happened, I missed it entirely.

    • The not so subtle way Leah fought against racism was actually ridiculous. I don’t even know why. It was as if she didn’t know what racism was, but knew it was bad. No acknowledgement – a simple ‘you’re a racist’ and storming off. Typical Leah behavior. I shouldn’t have expected much.

    The inescapable Happily-Ever-After. Good Lord, did I hate that ending! In the middle of utmost chaos and ridiculousness, the lovebirds kiss and unite, and leaving everything aside, leaving every single person hanging in the air, Becky takes us off to the final chapter where they live happily-ever-after.

    • Don’t you think I have a reason to be mad there? What happened to Garret that night? How about Nick? Did Leah forgive Morgan after all? When did Nick and Garret and the rest of the gang find out about them? Eh, supporting characters have no role in the book when the lead pair are united I guess.

    • Unrelatedly, there were so many pop culture/book references I had absolutely no idea about. This book was all about pleasing the fans. But Becky seems to have forgotten that not everyone has read all the books or watched all the hollywood movies or heard all those pop songs. Sorry, I felt irritated.

    Overall, this book is nowhere as good as Simon Vs. The Homosapiens Agenda, and it totally does not deserve the hype. I’m starting to think the five star reviews are all about nostalgia and pining for characters we thought were gone. I really did not enjoy reading this book except for the Simon-Blue part, and since that was very little of what made this book, I don’t think I would’ve missed out on much if I hadn’t read it. I’d hoped for something with real bisexual characters and a realistic approach from Beck Albertalli, but I guess authors are bound to disappoint sometimes, even the best ones.

    Read it if you are blindly in love with the characters, and see how they disappoint you. ...more

  • Lola

    There is huge hype surrounding this new title, and I am unashamed to say that I put aside the twenty other books I was reading to focus solely on this one. (Sorry-not-sorry, my lovelies!)

    Because it’s that good. Because it’s that important. And because after watching the movie Love, Simon, I was dying for more Leah & Simon interactions. These two are friendship goals all the way. They’re able to uplift my mood in a matter of seconds.

    This book may focus on Leah’s character, but it doesn’t cha

  • Cece (ProblemsOfaBookNerd)

    After a couple weeks of thought, I’ve decided to lower my rating from a 4 to a 3. Most of my reasons for this are pretty spoilery (one huge reason is basically the end of the book) but I will come back later after some more musing and write some spoiler specific thoughts.

  • Warda

    Edit: This book kept invading my mind and the more I thought about it, the more I felt this hatred towards it.

    Bleh.

    Pre-emotions:

    Please be as adorable as The Upside of Unrequited and Simon Vs.

    Post-read-book-emotions:

    Update: it wasn’t.

    This book was so meh. The story was meh. I felt nothing whilst reading. I liked Leah enough. I mean, I get her anger and how closed off she is. That is me. But maybe that’s what made it harder to connect with the story? I don’t know.

    I’m confused right now.

    The sto

    3.5 stars (I’m not happy about it either)

    This book has caused me a lot of turmoil.

    When I was reading it, I didn’t think it would be 5 stars. The ending was my FAVORITE though and that gave me the confidence to give it a high rating.

    But even after that, I still was doubtful of the 5-star rating. Certain characteristics about Leah rubbed me in the wrong way, and there was one scene in particular that I outright hated. It wasn’t until I kept talking with friends who had read this and seen others’ o

    JUST FREAKING WONDERFUL SJHBFKSJDHFBKSDHJF

    I will talk more about it once it hits shelves!

  • Yusra  ✨

    so I am very,,,conflicted? I mean, I just want to say that I was on my period when I read Simon Vs. & I was on my period while reading Leah and it was just a weird sync. & i honestly think the reason I was so gushy and in love with the dynamics between the characters was likely due to this fact!! but onto the review (which is basically just my ramblings)

    spoilers below regarding character relationships. read the synopsis before you read my review !

    so basically, this was a two star book

    I swear, people can’t wrap their minds around the concept of a fat girl who doesn’t diet. Is it that hard to believe I might actually like my body?


    I LOVE LEAH BURKE.

    I don't actually see how it's possible not to. She's hilarious and badass and sarcastic and moody and totally potty-mouthed. Oh, how I wish I could go back in time and give my awkward, chubby teen self this book.

    If you've had enough of the depressing gloomy world we live in and want to read something uplifting, unapologetically ne ...more
