I love me some angsty realistic YA. This reminded me of everything I love about the genre, with some developments I didn't see coming and plenty of romance.

It may be an unpopular opinion but I sympathise with Madeline's mum. I can understand the reason behind all her actions. Some of those decision are horrible, but she is still a mommy trying to protected her baby (or thinking that she is).

quote
Riis_Books

“Sometimes I reread my favorite books from back to front. I start with the last chapter and read backward until I get to the beginning. When you read this way, characters go from hope to despair, from self-knowledge to doubt. In love stories, couples start out as lovers and end as strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite characters come back to life.”

quote
Riis_Books

Just because you can‘t experience everything doesn‘t mean you shouldn‘t experience anything.

Everything, Everything is a risk and awesome. A quick and easy read.
It isn't all about a very ill teenager girl.The characters are well written and reliable. Some may judge that the end is predictable but still it is enjoyable and the best it could have happened. I also loved the writing style of the book. All Maddy's note - full of pictures, emails and her diagrams - are incorporated through all the book. It was awesome.

I saw the movie kind of slow to me but still was a good movie it was a one time watch for me I would like to read the book I read a preview of it on Amazon Kindle. Maybe the book will be better than the movie

Booktastic I haven't seen the movie but I enjoyed the book. I liked The Sun is Also a Star a little better - by the same author. 1mo
TamTracy I read the book. It was very good! 1mo
IvoryLunatic I haven't seen the movie but I read the book. I recommend it but feel about it the same way you feel about the movie - a one-time read. 1mo

I liked it but didn't feel a connection with the story or the characters. Could be because I have a lot of things on my mind right now. Still was okay.

This is not a YA book I‘d recommend, especially to people who don‘t read YA often. It‘s another “love conquers all” book and those kinda make me feel 🤢.

Pros:
Nicola‘s writing is beautiful.
Her husband‘s illustrations are gorgeous.
It‘s very readable.

Cons:
The love story plays out like every other YA romance I‘ve read.
Continued in comments: MAJOR SPOILERS!!

Megabooks How did this girl not know she wasn‘t sick? How did she never look it up on the internet? How did she never go looking for other people with her condition online? Seriously. That‘s a lot more blind obedience to her mom than even I had as a teen, and I was a really good kid. 3mo
Caterina I hated this book. It's ableist in a really harmful way that I couldn't get past. 3mo
Caterina The implied message is "don't appropriately care for your health, LIVE! Take risks or life isn't worth it" and the ending felt like a cheap cop-out because how could someone who ACTUALLY had a chronic illness have a happily ever after?? As a person with chronic illness I can't stand this kind of ableist messaging, intentional or not, and am glad this book wasn't around when I was a chronically ill 17 year old. 3mo

Megabooks @Caterina That is true. I hadn‘t thought about it that way. I panned it the first time I read it, but I can‘t deny that Yoon is a talented writer. I just wish she had picked a better plot. 3mo
Megabooks @Caterina Re spoiler: Yes, I see your. I have had a number of chronic illnesses since 17 but had a healthy childhood. I hate how men that I‘ve dated either once they find out I‘m ill say, “see ya” or they think I‘m a princess in need of rescuing. I am neither broken nor in need of fixing, I am human. But that‘s just me. I guess that‘s part of why I hate this book. 3mo
Caterina I also enjoyed Yoon's writing. Have you read her second book? It was better than this one. Also yesss I have had some unpleasant attempts at dating men. 😂😪 One didn't want me to get my health to a better place because I guess he felt like it changed the power dynamic and intimidated him. 🤷 3mo
Megabooks @Caterina I have read it, and I do think it‘s better. One guy told me on a date that he wanted, “a harem of damaged women.” What. The. Fuck!!! I almost jumped out of the car. That is still surreal, and it was about 20 years ago!! 3mo
Caterina 😱😱😱 That is so alarming, and even worse to hear when you're in the car with him!! F the patriarchy that creates such horrors, that is messed up! 3mo

I watched the movie before I read the book, yet Everything Everything was beautifully written. Examining the dynamics between Madeline and her mother made me think of Munchausen‘s Syndrome. It was amazing to read as Madeline and Olly‘s relationship changed from strangers to being in love. What would you do for love if you could be affected by the outside world. I was happy that Madeline separated from her mother and explored all she missed.

Fascinating concept, and engrossing. Super easy to read. I loved the relationships between Olly/Maddy, and Maddy/Carla. Also brings awareness to the reality of some people‘s lives.

UNTIL ALL OF THAT CHANGED.

A very fast read, "Everything, Everything" is what I consider to be a typical YA love story. Sick girl falls for boy next door and with parental problems on top of her illness, how can this relationship ever work? Does love conquer all?

While I did enjoy the random illustrations and handwritten notes, I did struggle a bit with the predictability and (un)realistic factors.

“Everything, Everything" is okay for a cute read, but not my favorite.

Karkar I had a hard time with this too. Letting go of the fact they would have never been able to do the things they did, it was hard for me. 3mo
Megabooks I thought it was a silly premise. The author didn‘t seem to know much about the medical condition she was writing about, or she wrote a very gullible MC. 3mo
KristenDuck @Megabooks I kind of knew what was coming the whole time because of this. Like I knew where we were heading. 3mo
OnlyYoo The amount of texts or emails they sent made up about half of the book... 3mo

1. I work at a library, so pretty much all of my books are discovered there. ?
2. Love a good self-help book! Whenever I read one or buy organizing products at IKEA, I am completely convinced that I‘ll change my life.
3. If you name it, I‘ve probably read it. I‘ve taken Brenè Brown‘s words to heart.
4. After my son was stillborn, I only read books about grief for over a year. It was a rough time.

Firstly, don't listen to the audiobook - the short chapters, emails, etc don't really work well.
I think I liked the writing, but didn't like the story. Surprisingly, I didn't see the twist coming. I hoped that that was going to make it so much better, but the consequences just weren't there.
I've rated it a pick, but it's really close to a so-so for me.

This was a great book. I would recommend it to anyone. It‘s about a girl who lost her dad and brother to a car accident and is allergic to everything, and one day a boy moves in next door and they found each other‘s emails and started talking. One day they want to meet, so her “nanny” lets them go in a room but they have to stay 5 feet apart. But like each, she and the boy sneaks out. She isn‘t allergic to anything. Read it to find out!!!

MrsBabki @Aurora_Marie I loved that book, too! Put Five Feet Apart on hold - try to read the book before you take in the 🎥! 5mo
Aurora_Marie @MrsBabki yeah I‘m going to read it before I watch the movie. They both sound really good 5mo

This book is about a girl who lived indoors almost all her life but when cute guy moves next door BAM !! Even though it sounds cheesy it has a major plot that will blow ur mind . It's one of my all time faves plus u could finish this book in one or three sitting.

blurb
BookwormBestfriend

The moment I finished reading, I had this content feeling my heart. The book taught me that no matter what happens you can leave it behind you. Even though Madeline did not forgive her mother in the end, she was happy that she is at least free now. She can now do whatever she wants to do. And she had one person that she knew would not leave her side because Olly did not want to leave when he knew she has SCID and probably no future with him.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a quick read and I felt I already knew how it would end and I was right. Either way I liked the layout of the book and each character was well developed. I don‘t usually read YA fiction but I would definitely recommend this book.

I‘m usually not into contemporary novels, but this one seemed interesting. I love the connection between Madeline and Olly. I could feel the deep connection that they had for each other. It made me hope that they find a way to make it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️📚 #EverythingEverything #NicolaYoon #book #books #booknerd #booknerds #booknerdsunite #booknerdy #booknook #booknation #nerd #nerds #nerdy #nerdsunite #booknooks #YoungAdult #Contemporary #Romance 🧡🧡🧡🧡

I'm torn on this one; while I loved some aspects, overall I was ok with the book. Not in love but also just ok with it as it was fairly predictable to me once it got going but what I did love was the audio narration.

Bahni Turpin and Robbie Daymond totally nailed it and made it just so much more likeable for me.

Enjoyed the story quite a bit, but as far as the audiobook goes, the narrator‘s voice annoyed me (sounded a bit robotic and her attempts at doing a male character voice was laughable). Wish I‘d just read the actual book. Haven‘t watched the movie yet, but I definitely want to now. #ya #romance #romantsy #audiobook

I had some ideas about this book before I started it. Well, I was wrong on every one of them. A lovely story of finding yourself, love and learning to grow in spite of what happens to you. Poor Maddy could have had such a different life, such a sad and yet somehow sweet story. I will not give it away, but when I finally figured out what was going on I was very sad for Miss Maddy and all the things she hasn't done. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

I stared this audiobook yesterday. So far I like the story, but the narrators‘s voice makes me cringe a little, particularly when she tries to do the guy‘s dialogue. They have a male doing his dialogue for email parts so I don‘t understand why they couldn‘t get him to do his main dialogue too??? #ya #romance #romantsy #audiobook
