Everything, Everything- Nicola Yoon: Book Review!

Hi Guys,

This is the last installment of the original 'Zoella Book Club' reviews. Although, this is not the last you'll see of the series! Last month Zoe released the Autumn books she has chosen so come back on the 10th of December to see my review of 'The twelve days of Dash and Lily'. 

I would just like to say that I have absoloutely loved making this series so far. I am a really avid reader so finding material that I wouldn't normally choose myself has been amazing! I think I have been reviewing for long enough now to say that I love it! If you also have a passion for reading, please try writing about books. You might just surprise yourself: like I did! But for now, let's get on with the review!

As always, I will try to keep spoiler to a minimum!

'Everything, Everything' follows the very small life of Madeline Whittier. She has been house bound for the pat 17 years of her life because of a very rare condition called SCID; this hasn't got her spirits down. Maddy is content with her life until the beautiful Olly moves in next door. Watching him from the window becomes a hobby, next they're IMing but Mad wants more. What will she give to have the life that she has missed out on?

I absolutely loved this book! I was hooked from the start and it was so much easier to read because it had amazing illustrations! I also like that the dialogue was mixed through texts and emails; it just added another layer. Nicola Yoon wrote it beautifully and made every relationship count! Also, 'We Were Liars' is famed for it's shock ending but 'Everything, Everything' was unpredictable! You won't see it coming, which keeps you hooked to the very end!

As I mentioned, the relationships between characters were all wonderful. You could feel the person oozing out of every page because they were conveyed with such passion and integrity (that is the most pretentious thing I've ever written!). I fell in love with Carla; I think we all have a Carla in our lives! Everyone was so relatable. Although the quantity of characters was small, they were all so valuable.

I really wish that I owned a copy of this book (I checked out of my library!) so  could read it again and again. It is going to be made into a film, though! I cannot wait to see who they cast as Olly! Out of all of the books I have read for this series, I can safely say that I have left the best until last!

Thank you so much for reading this review. Please add me to your circles to help me achieve my goal of 150 by December the 1st! Also, I love reading your comments so tell me what you thought of 'Everything, Everything'.

Thanks for Reading,

A Collection of Failures Through February...

I don't really know if what a clumsy and awkward person I am has been documented enough. Through inference, I feel like it's been made evident. I've mentioned a few of the embarrassing little moments that I've had throughout my monthly's but you are wrong if you think that's it. My life is not just a collection of one off encounters with shame: it's basically a book. A solid 75% of February had been comprised of making a fool of myself, overall. So, here I am, admitting to that fact, and hoping that these stories will make you feel a little bit better about yourself...

The Onion Incident- Okay, I feel like this dramatic title has really pulled you in! Our story begins on a Thursday morning, during half term. I was going to go out to print some photos for my scrap book but my mum asked if I'd go and get her two carrots, an onion and a bag of potatoes. A strangely specific list- I know- but I just accepted it and went off on my journey. I printed my photos…

Why I Hate Rom Coms...

Contrary to what the title would have you believe, romance is my favourite genre of film. I'd say that the first real rom com I watched was 'Pretty Woman' and my obsession had grown since then. However, no matter have much I adore them, I have some issues with the category. Pretty much everyone romance film includes one of these tropes; they wouldn't be a trope if they didn't!

First of all is rain. I have no problem with the weather: light drizzle is actually my favourite weather (I find it really therapeutic to see it bouncing off of an umbrella, okay?!?) but the rain you get in rom coms is next level. It's thunderstorm level of soak, yet nobody seems to have seen the forecast! Surely if that much rain was predicted, one of these people would be wearing a raincoat? It actually doesn't seem to have any kind of effect on the characters, so their lack of preparation isn't an issue. If I'm getting rained on I'm shivery, have stringy curls all over m…
