Everything, Everything {Nicola Yoon}


Synopsis from Goodreads:

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:

(Disclaimer: I will never post spoilers in my reviews HOWEVER the comment section is completely fair game to discuss any and all specifics including spoilers)

5 Stars

I love reading Young Adult Literature (YA) from time to time and this is one of the best I have read. Oh did I love this book! I truly couldn’t put it down and finished in 3 days. You know those books that you devour whenever you can squeeze in even just a few minutes here and there and literally can’t put it down?  That was this book for me. I read this while eating meals, parked in parking spaces, in between loads of laundry, etc. I simply could not get enough of this fascinating story! Nicola Yoon has such a beautiful way with words and her style of writing is so unique. The “chapters” are so short (often times just 1 page) and due to this, it’s very easy to get caught up in the quickness of how fast this story flows and how quickly you will become immersed into it.  I highly, highly recommend this one. Beautifully told story with such colorful characters.  Perfect in every way.

Bottom Line:

Read this. Now. You’re welcome.

  1. This was a great book and well written. I liked the twist at the end. I wanted to feel bad for Maddy many times, but most of the time she was pretty positive and straight forward about her condition and situation. I love reading the book before I watch the movie. Can’t wait to watch this one!


    1. Yes! Agreed! I did NOT see that twist coming at the end, I thought it was a great ending. I also agree that I wanted to feel badly for Maddy but I think her understanding and overall acceptance of her situation made it difficult to do so. The movie looks great…I want to see it but haven’t yet! Let me know when you do and your thoughts, Xo
