Review: Every Day by David Levithan

Every Day Genre: YA Contemporary
Published: September 9, 2013 by Random House Children’s Books
Length: 384 pages
Source: bought (at Target)

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.”

review

This book was spectacular! I was hooked on from the first page till the last. Every day is told by A, our main character, who lives in a different body every day. First off, the concept of the story is very unique. I have not read a single book that has a concept like Every Day so this is definitely a fresh read for me. Second, David Levithan’s writing style is just fantastic. I love how even though the book was not action-packed, I was left at the edge of my seat most of the time. I was always left intrigued when the chapter was done, so even though it was like 1 am and I haven’t done any of my homework, I still kept on reading.

I seriously adored A. I just love how he is so open minded and independent. He is also strong  because he lived his life without having any parents, no birthdays, no etc. He was basically living by himself. No one actually knows his situation until he falls in love with Rhiannon. I’ll just live it at that. I also like how A and Rhiannon were very flawed and relatable characters. Some of their views opposed one another, but I could see why and it was interesting because they both made sense. Blah. I’m probably not making any sense right now, but you’ll see.

Overall I highly recommend you reading this wonderful book. It’s original and fast paced! If you’re in a reading slump, then you should definitely hop on this book because I’m sure it’ll take you away from your slump.

      Yay! I hope you like it when you read it, and I’ll be on the lookout for your review. I think this one is a perfect read when you’re just DONE with everything (like you’re not in the mood to read a fantasy, dystopian, paranormal, etc.).

    I think I would just love this book! It sounds like the type that I really get into, and I’ve heard great things about the author. I’ve never read a book with the concept of Every Day either, so I definitely need to check it out!

    I’ve never read anything by David Levithan but he’s such a big name, I feel like I should! This sounds interesting – I’m guessing it explains why he inhabits all these different bodies?
