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,
Runnerella

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
