Every Day by David Levithan

The cover art doesn’t really make sense to me, but it’s still pretty.

Every Day is a story about love. SWEET love. (That song is now playing in my head.)

A lives in other people’s bodies. A doesn’t have a choice. A simply wakes up as a different person every day, but still remembers the life lived the day before. The journey A takes over the time of this book is heartbreaking and beautiful. We peek in on the lives of dozens of 16-year-olds. It’s a great reminder that we are all different, but we are all so similar.

If you have enjoyed any of the books below, then you should DEFINITELY run out and find yourself a copy of Every Day as soon as it hits a shelf near you because I think you will love it.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn
One Day by David Nicholls
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan

If you haven’t read any of the above books, then well…WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN READING?! Seriously, I know some of them may seem out of place, but they’re all quirky, some a little more fantastical than others, and most are tear-inducing (which I really like.)

The most refreshing part of this book: it isn’t a series. It’s an absolutely amazing book all on it’s own. BUT I actually WANT it to continue. I want more. THAT’S how a series should be determined. If the story can be wrapped up in one book…STOP forcing them into trilogies. Please and thank you.

(I received an Advanced Copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss.)
