I still remember what I felt the first time I saw Every Day in the bookstore. The moment I saw it, touched it and read the synopsis, I knew that I’m going to love the book and I must have it. Okay. I’m not trying to be dramatic and OA (overacting; overreacting) here but I’m just being honest. I tend to feel weirdly magical or excited towards book so, that’s why. Anyways, let me give you a background about the book.
Synopsis: I wake up.
Immediately, I have to figure out who I am. It’s not just the body—opening my eyes and discovering whether the skin on my arm is light or dark, whether my hair is long or short, whether I’m fat or thin, boy or girl, scarred or smooth. The body is the easiest thing to adjust to, if you’re used to waking up in a new one each morning. It’s the life, the context of the body, that can be hard to grasp.
Every day I am someone else. I am myself—I know I am myself—but I am also someone else.
It has always been like this.
Review: I loved the book. I think the story is a bit different compare to other YA novels because of the situation of A—the main character. Although, it still follows the same old kind of romance. A doesn’t have a body of his own and always wake up in different form of human being every single day. It’s cool, right? You, jumping in and out of the bodies got a chance to experience their life for a day. But you can’t control it. That’s the sad part. You can’t stay there and you don’t have originality, your own unique body.
I love how A is romantic and understandable. I guess that’s just what you’re going to be when you went into a lot of body and have their life for a day. I guess that will just make you open-minded. For Rhiannon, I adore that she tried to understand the condition of A and tried to make things work in that way. The book made feel excited for every page especially when Nathan came to the scene. But of course, the book focused more on A’s love life and finding his self.
What I only dislike about this is that it didn’t tell what A is. Is he a soul, a spirit? Why does he change body every day? Is he made just like that? For him to experience only what living is? You see, this left me a lot of questions after.
Conclusion: I love how it was written. I love how it ended. Maybe this book is about choosing who you’re going to be or being happy despite of everything. After all, it’s up to us how we’re going to live or function. Also, this has a lot of quotable quotes and full of feels (wave of emotion). This book is for everyone looking for a different kind of romance, teens and above.
Chosen Line: “You look the same, no matter what eyes I’m seeing you through. I feel the same.” (Day 6005)
