“Everything, Everything” was the Teatimereaders book of the month all the way back in February, but I never got around to reading it.. So when I was going to Rome around easter I decided that with the movie coming out soon now was the time to catch up and read this crazy hyped book ❤ Let’s just say I was not disappointed 😉
Maddy has never been Outside. She simply cannot because she is sick. Therefore she has lived her entire life inside her house with her mom and her nurse Carla. She spends all her time reading or taking online school classes. Everything is the same.. Until the new neighbors move in. Among them is Olly: a guy the same age as Maddy who always wears black and loves to do parkour. Olly’s room is opposite Maddie’s and they start to exchange messages at their windows. But things are not easy when no strangers are allowed in the house and Maddie’s mother forbids any kind of communication. On top of all that the two of them (Maddy and Olly) just want more – as young love tend to be like.
This story is adorable and fast paced. You can read the book in a day if you wish – I did. There are no too strong emotions while reading Everything, Everything, but it is a sweet read non the less. The concept of the book is also rather interesting with Maddy’s decease mixed with a curiosity that could get her killed.
I liked this book and it was perfect for me at the time after coming out of a slump and wanting to read something light and fast paced while being in Rome as well.
Based on the concept of the book, the writing quality, the characters, the setting and my overall experience of reading the book I rate Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon ★★★☆☆. This book is great and I highly recommend reading it (especially doing it now before the movie comes out and there will be spoilers EVERYWHERE).
Have a lovely day you all ❤ ❤
