Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
5 OUT OF 5 STARS
“Sometimes you do things for the right reasons and sometimes for the wrong ones and sometimes it’s impossible to tell the difference.”
I stayed up until 3am reading this book. I couldn’t stop reading it and it didn’t feel right going to sleep leaving it unfinished. I absolutely loved this book more than words can even explain! It was EVERYTHING and more if there was more than everything. I love Maddy with every piece of my heart and she was such an awesome character and such a strong person. I instantly fell in love with Olly and Carla too.
Nicola Yoon did such an amazing job writing this book and it was uniquely written and I guarantee you won’t be able to put it down! I laughed. I cried. I got angry. I felt everything. I am so glad that I was able to read this book and be apart of this amazing story. I highly recommend this book!
I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review. It will be released in September and I do hope you all give it a chance! “Life is a gift.” I could talk about this book forever and it wouldn’t be enough. It was definitely such an amazing and beautiful story. I think I’ll end it here though, because I don’t want to give anything away. Just know, it’s amazing and it’ll shock you and make you fall in love; with Maddy, the world, and your own life.
“But it’s never just one moment. It’s a series of them. And your life can branch out from each one in a thousand different ways. Maybe there’s a version of your life for all the choices you make and all the choices you don’t.”
Goodreads Description: My disease is as rare as it is famous. It’s a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in fifteen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla. But then one day, a moving truck arrives. New next door neighbors. I look out the window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black t-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly. I want to learn everything about him, and I do. I learn that he is funny and fierce. I learn that his eyes are Atlantic Ocean-blue and that his vice is stealing silverware. I learn that when I talk to him, my whole world opens up, and I feel myself starting to change—starting to want things. To want out of my bubble. To want everything, everything the world has to offer.
“Love is worth everything. Everything.” ❤
Since I was up until after 4AM and I am up four hours later, I think I’ll be heading back to sleep (or at least attempting to). I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Bye!
