Every Day by David Levithan
4.5 out of 5 stars.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: We all want everything to be okay. We don’t even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.”
Goodreads Description: Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
Happy December! 🙂
I’ve been so back and forth on if I wanted to read this book and I am so glad that I did! I am kind of struggling with how to even write up a review or my thoughts on this book. At first it was a little weird for me, but also interesting at the same time. A wakes up in the body of Justin and falls in love with his girlfriend Rhiannon, which I at first didn’t like. It was insta-love for A, but I guess when you’re switching from body to body (life to life) then you don’t know what to expect or how to react about some things.
I personally wasn’t that big of a fan of Rhiannon. She kind of annoyed me, especially when she was falling in love with A but was so offish when he was in a body she wasn’t particularly okay with (example: when he was in the 300 pound body of a guy). I guess I can see where she is coming from though, because how do you react when someone you know and are falling for is in a new body every single day? That’s where all the weirdness came to me. It was SO strange, lol. I don’t even know any other way to put it. A seemed a little needy, but I guess I can also see where he is coming from with having to switch from body to body (life to life) every day and finally finding someone he wants to be with and can’t.
This post is kind of just everywhere LOL! So sorry about that. I just honestly have no idea how to form my thoughts on the book other than I really enjoyed it and I want to read the next book as soon as possible! I really liked how this book seemed so different from other books I have read and it was so interesting. I think the next book is about Rhiannon though, so I’m not sure how much I’ll like it. We’ll see!
“It’s as simple as that. Simple and complicated, as most true things are.”
Have you read Every Day? If so, what did you think about it?
I seriously apologize for this review. I really enjoyed the book SO much, but I just can’t really put it into the right words. I also apologize for my lack of posts. I’m around though reading all of your blogs, so at least I am not completely gone! I just have no idea what I want to post about, because I am not really reading much over the last month. Sigh. GIVE ME IDEAS 😛 I currently put Cress to the side and am currently reading Not If I See You First. I’m not too far into it though, but hopefully I’ll get a lot more read tonight.
I had to take out my Christmas fireplace picture, because I couldn’t get it to not be my main picture on the reader. I hate when it defaults to not being the picture I choose for my feature image, I don’t understand why it does that. I’ll save it for my next post. I think this weekend I am finally going to do that picture post that I’ve been wanting to do. It’ll just be a random little update about things going on in my life with pictures included! 🙂
I gotta get to work! I hope you have a great day! ❤
