This is my first proper blog post since I finished my exams and was released from the clutches of my school (your girl is finally free!) and I am sooooo ready to get back into blogging again!
This post is gonna be a book review. I don’t normally do these, I’ve actually never done one on this blog before, but I love reading and I’ve been meaning to get back into it -you can read my reading list here– so I’m super happy that I finally have the time to read again. The book I’ll be reviewing is Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon.
“Living life in a bubble?
Or risk everything for love?
Maddy is allergic to the world.
She hasn’t left her house in seventeen years.
Olly is the boy next door.
He’s determined to find a way to reach her.
Everything, Everything is about
the crazy risks we take for love.”
I flew through this book! I couldn’t stand sitting around in my free time doing nothing, even though I wasn’t finished my exams, so guilt aside, I ran myself a bath, pulled this book out off bookshelf and got stuck in. It took me about three hours to read from cover to cover.
I fell in love with everything about this book. I fell in love with the characters, the settings, the words, the way it makes you feel. That’s what I loved the most about this book- it makes you feel.
Maddy is such a complex character that she’s almost simple. She wears the same white shoes everyday. She only wears white t-shirts. Her whole room is white. Everything about her is clean and simple… or so it seems.
Olly is unique. He’s cool and good looking and has those boyish charms that every teenage girl looks for in a teenage boy. Everyone deserves an Olly in their life. Someone who will love you unconditionally, someone who will fight for you.
The way this book is laid out just makes it so much easier to read. Some of the pages only have a few words on them. This book is a good shout for even those who despise reading. Not to mention the HUGE plot twist in the book that punched me in the face! Hell, I did not see that coming!
Have you read Everything, Everything? What books are you planning on reading this summer?
Until next time…
