Wednesday Book Recommendation: Every Day

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.



My thoughts (5 of 5 stars!):
Absolutely fantastic. Such a brilliant book. One of the rare ones that makes you think the whole way through while also being very entertaining. Overall: very moving, very well done, and the ending? As it should be.

In case it isn't clear, I loved everything about it.

On a related sidenote: this is the second David Levithan book I've read, and just wow. His voice is always spot on, his stories always suck me right in, and yeah, I'm quickly becoming a fangirl of his work. (Also starting to think he's a bit of a genius.)

And the last few books I've read have been REALLY, really good. I'm on a roll I hope doesn't end soon. Actually, (spoilers!), I know it doesn't. Currently reading Victoria Schwab's The Near Witch and pretty much adoring everything about it.

So, until next time, sugarpuffs (don't ask...I have no idea where this came from, only that it seemed to fit in my head and I liked it, so yanno', we're going with it)...

Wishing you all peace, love and a summer full of great books!

  1. I know! What a cool concept for a book, this was such an interesting read. I had to check my questioning-mindset, trying to piece together why/how A could exist, and I admit, I wanted a little more resolution on that front. But as an exploration into what it means to view every person with respect and true equality, what a powerful book.

  2. It totally was! A friend of mine recommended it and I was just blown away. I loved the concept and the heart behind it. Glad to see I'm not alone! ;-)
