Everything, Everything was Everything. There’s no other way of putting it.
After I fell in love with The Sun is Also a Star in October last year, I knew that I had to read Everything, Everything.
I read Everything, Everything in just over a day. As soon as I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down! I found myself reading non-stop, racing through each page (at probably a record speed for me 😂) and then before I knew it, I’d finished it.
When I was reading, I would get so immersed in the story that I’d look at the clock and see that I’d been reading non-stop for an hour and I’d read over 100 pages! This, for me, is the magic of reading – feeling like you’re no longer a part of the ‘real world’ and you’re living the story with the characters.
Throughout reading this book, I couldn’t stop thinking about all the characters and what could happen next. It’s rare for me to like every character in a book, but in Everything, Everything, I liked all of them!
I never really knew what would happen next – I couldn’t believe the steps that Maddy was taking for love, but I was mentally applauding her at the same time for being that brave and bold!
Now, onto the ending! I loved the ending, like I loved the ending for The Sun is Also a Star! I never could have anticipated how Everything, Everything would end – I still can’t quite believe it now, almost 3 weeks after I finished reading it. I was in utter disbelief, as I couldn’t believe that it had ended that way. I did have one crazy thought at one point, where I unknowingly correctly predicted the ending, but I highly doubted that the book would end that way! 😂 Nicola Yoon always ends books in such an amazing way, as the story wraps up so neatly and always leaves me feeling so warm and happy.
Something that I love about Everything, Everything is the different types of formats each page has, for example the traditional page format and the different ones, such as the emails, IMs, charts and my favourite two pages – 237 and 238.
After reading both of Nicola Yoon’s books, I know that I am definitely going to buy Instructions for Dancing when it comes out later this year.
Overall, I highly recommend Everything, Everything to any Romance or Contemporary fans and to any fans of The Sun is Also a Star.
