Book Review: Everything, Everything

Hey everyone! It’s Monday and that means back to school and work. Sigh. It’s also time for another book review! This is a YA book review. As you can probably guess by the title, I am reviewing Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. This is Yoon’s debut novel and boy is it a smashing hit.

Name: Everything, Everything

Author: Nicola Yoon

What a wonderful lady!

# of pages: 320 pages

Genres: YA/Contempory/Romance

My Rating: 5/5 stars

Goodreads Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Amazon Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Goodreads/Amazon Summary:

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster. “

My Thoughts:

Oh my gosh! This was such an amazing book. I felt so bad for Maddy because she was bored most of the time. All she saw was white walls, fake plants, her mom and her nurse Carla. Maddy and Carla have such an amazing relationship. Everything was pretty normal until the neighbors moved in. Right away, Maddy’s eyes were drawn to Olly. I couldn’t blame her. He sounded so hot!

The best part of the book (one of them) was the plot twist at the end. When it happened I saw like:

I had a hard time believing it. Overall this book was absolutely amazing. I loved from page one and held on tight until the last page. I recommend this 100%. Contemporary lovers especially need to give this a read. I have to warn you there is some parts that get a little inappropriate. Otherwise it’s fine. I honestly hope they make a film adaption of this book.


That’s a wrap! I hope I didn’t drown you in my love for this book. Have you read Everything, Everything? If you have, what did you think about it? If you haven’t did this review make you want to read it? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews!

Top Ten Bookworm Delights

Top Ten Tuesdays

Top Ten Bookworm Delights:

  1. Finding a book you’ve been looking for forever! 

Everyone knows this feeling! It’s always exciting to finally hold a book you’ve been searching for 😀

2. The smell of new books. 

Oh my gosh! It’s so satisfying to smell a brand new book. If you’re a bookworm you definitely know this feels.

3. Finding someone who loves books as much as you do!

This is such an amazing thing! WordPress helps me connect with all the amazing book bloggers who share the same feelings as I do about books. I love you guys 🙂

4. Going to a bookstore!

You can finally get a book and not have to worry about fines! They are quite expensive though…

5. Wanting to meet the author of a book 

This feeling every bookworm can’t go without! There are so many authors I need to meet. Sadly, I’ve only met one 😦

6. When the book cover is too beautiful to handle.

This doesn’t need much explanation. Book covers just amaze me sometimes.

7. When your friends and family get you a book you’ve wanted forever!

This is the best thing ever! You get a book you wanted for free! Plus whoever bought it becomes your absolute favorite person in the whole world.

8. When there’s a sequel to a book you loved!

Finding out you can continue raving, fangirling and so much more over the characters is the best feeling ever!

9) Being part of a book fandom

It’s great to be able to express your opinions with people who understand what you’re going through

10) When there’s a plot twist you didn’t see coming 

This can either make you hate the author or start freaking out. If you’re lucky it can be both. Authors seem to like to see the readers suffer.


This was definitely a fun topic! What are your bookworm delights? Did I forget any important ones? Let me know! 

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday’s: Book’s I Haven’t Raved About

Hey everyone! I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I’m on Spring Break now (yay!) so I will be hopefully posting more often. Today is Tuesday and that mean’s Top Ten Tuesdays! This wonderful meme is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Go check them out if you haven’t already 🙂

Top Ten Tuesdays

This week’s topic is:

Ten Books I Really Love But Feel Like I Haven’t Talked About Enough/In A While

I have so many books to rave about!

1) Simon v.s the Homo Sapiens Agenda

This book is amazing! I recently reviewed it but I don’t have the link since this is pre written. You definitely need to check out my review and read the book if you haven’t already.

2) The Survivors Series by Erin Hunter

This series is indeed aimed towards children. There are talking dogs for goodness sakes. It’s such a page turner! I just finished the last book of the first series. The ending was magnificent. If you’re not into children’s books, at least check it out for your kids/grandkids/friend’s kids.

3) The Harry Potter series

I guess I have raved about this enough… Oh well! I absolutely love the chemistry between the characters and how romance really comes into play. If you haven’t read this series, you need to ASAP.

4) The Fault in Our Stars

I have raved about this countless times. I love Hazel and Gus’s on going devotion and romance and how it grows. If you haven’t read this, you definitely should 🙂

5) Fangirl

Oh my gosh. I love Levi and Cath’s relationship! It’s beyond adorable. When I go to Starbucks, I think about Levi and his uniform for work. Contemporary fans should especially read this.

6) The Warriors Series

This is just like the Survivors but with cats. I read the series quite a while ago but loved it. There is definitely some violence just like in the Survivors series. If you or someone you know loves animals and fantasy, this is the book for them!

7) Wonder

This book is so inspiring. It’s a book all about a boy who’s born with a deformed face. You get to see his journey through school and what he experiences.

8) Paper Towns

This is another book by John Green but there isn’t much romance. It’s a story about what a crush on someone can make you do. It’s more of a suspense and adventure book. I definitely recommend it.

 


 

I think we’ll end it here. This post was just me fangirling over books and showing off impressive fan art. I hope you enjoyed it!
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday’s.

Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda (Book Review)

Hey everyone! Today it’s time for another book review. Many of you will be excited to hear that this book is for teenagers and not for tweens/children. The book is Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. It’s quite a unique book for me because it’s the first LGBTQ book.

Blog Graphic (1)

Name: Simon v.s. The Homo Sapiens Agenda

Author: Becky Albertalli

A little fun fact is that this is Becky’s first ever book. It’s also available in French! This amazing book was published last year (2015)

# of pages: 303

My Rating: 6/5 stars (It was honestly that good)

Goodreads Rating: 4.3/5 stars

Amazon Rating: 4.7/5 stars


 

Amazon Summary:

Sixteen-year-old and not-so-openly gay Simon Spier prefers to save his drama for the school musical. But when an email falls into the wrong hands, his secret is at risk of being thrust into the spotlight. Now change-averse Simon has to find a way to step out of his comfort zone before he’s pushed out—without alienating his friends, compromising himself, or fumbling a shot at happiness with the most confusing, adorable guy he’s never met.


 

My Thoughts:

This book is amazing! It’s hard to believe this is Becky Albertalli’s debut novel! Like I mentioned above, this was my first LGBTQ novel and I’m very impressed! Simon Spier is so darn adorable. His email relationship with Blue is absolutely adorable. Everything about this book is just adorable. I’m not going to spoil who Blue is, but when you do find out it’s like… POW!

Following Simon through his journey in this book is absolutely amazing. I really want to say more but I don’t want to spoil anything.

If you enjoy adventurous, suspenseful and/or romantic books, this is for you!

For those who have read the book, I have some good news that you may or may not know. Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda is going to be made into a movie!!!

They started working on it October of last year. There is no release date. Fox 2000 is going to produce it. Fox 2000 also produced book to film adaptions like Paper Towns and the Maze Runner.


That’s a wrap! Do you think you’ll read this book? If you’ve already read it, what are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book reviews to come!
