Review: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

em quarta-feira, 18 de janeiro de 2017 |
‘’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.’’

About the author:
Nicola Yoon grew up in Jamaica (the island) and Brooklyn (part of Long Island). She currently resides in Los Angeles, CA with her husband and daughter, both of whom she loves beyond all reason. Everything, Everything is her first novel.


First! Just look at how pretty this cover is! I’m in love with the simplicity of the details that make this cover unique. *-*
For those of you who follow my reviews you will come to understand that I only a fan of contemporary-romance books on certain moments. I must be in the mood to read certain types of books and those are some of them.
I decided to pick this one up because I was in the mood, and the cover is pretty, and I’ve just finished A Torch Against the Night and my heart refuses to dive into another fantasy world. Seriously, I just can’t. I pick a book up and all I see is not Elias, not Laia, not Helene, not Kennan, not Commander, not scims, not fighting, not An Ember in the Ashes.
“Everything's a risk. Not doing anything is a risk. It's up to you.”
But I’ve come to realize and not all of this genre are just pretty stories, actually you can find in quite a lot of them life changing advices. And while I am struggling to grasp the one from this book, I can tell you 100% certainty that there is one and that it will be different from person to person.
“Life is a gift. Don't forget to live it.” 
I am also sure of some couple of things:
This is not the greatest book you’ll ever read.
The writing is not the best you’ll encounter.
Not even the greatest love story someone will tell you.
This characters are extremely one sided and undeveloped.
This story could be so much more if the author had just deepened a little more.
This story will leave you feeling like a part of you has just died.
This story is amazing.
“It's a hard concept to hold on to--the idea that there was a time before us. A time before time. In the beginning there was nothing. And then there was everything.”

I know it feels like I’m contradicting myself; after all how can a story be amazing when I have so many amazing things to say about it.
Simple: Everything Everything is not a tale to be legendary, it’s a story to make you feel and learn something.
And, it does. It does it beautifully.
So…I’m not really sure what to say about this book, it’s good it’s not great. It’s a romance, it has a great twist. It’s really easy to read and quick.
If you have the chance and you like this kind of books, do it, read it. I believe you’ll enjoy it.

Rating: 3/5
