    I'm in the minority here I didn't like Every Day and the I think about the book the it angers meThe main character A is Dr Sam Beckett; A uantum leaps from person to person landing in a different host each day A has no body of A's own having been leaping since A was an infant at least There are a few rules limiting the leaps1 A leaps only into a host of approximately the same age and A appears to age in the same progression as a human that is A at one is mentally indistinguishable from a human at one At the time of this story A is sixteen 2 A's leaps have some sort of geographical upper limit; the only way for A to say leave the state is if the person A leaps into leaves the state that day This limit plus the previous raise uestions about what will happen when A gets to be say ninety The number of suitable hosts will go down and their geographical distance will increase And what happens if a host dies while A is in possession?3 A makes the leap at midnight each day It isn't clear whether midnight is relative or absolute ie would A leap at 11 PM if A were in the Central time zone rather than Eastern? Does A spend exactly twenty four hours in each host? but relative is implied Which suggests that one way for A to never leap would be to travel west fast enough And what would happen if A possessed an astronaut on launch day?4 A never leaps into the same person twice5 A can access the memories of A's host but only in regard to facts not feelings Also A can't access foreign languages fast enough for fluency which raises some interesting uestions about the nature of language acuisition as related to AIn fact all of these rules raise some interesting uestions And if you are the sort of person who thinks in these terms here are the limitations now what are the implications of those limitations? then you WILL NOT like this book Another reviewer of this book referred to this frame of mind as logic hobbled Thanks Maybe I should refer to YOU as unimaginative None of these uestions get answered and in fact the book brings up uestions as it goes on it turns out that there are other entities like A and that it is possible to remain in the same host indefinitely HEY WHAT? But no this concept doesn't get explored much Oh and what do A's hosts remember about having hosted A? Well it depends on what the plot needs At first A doesn't know what they remember but then a few days later A has suddenly gained the ability to implant perfect false memories in A's hostsI will say though that I actually wasn't all that bothered by the lack of answers It was pretty obvious from the first few pages that Levithan isn't the sort of author who really cares about those details I'm sure he would agree with Emerson So since I could tell I wasn't going to get the kind of story I would have liked I instead focused on the story we did getAnd the story we did get isnot good There are two main threads of the book The first is the story of A's Twoo Wuv which is naturally Nice Guy apologism with a heaping helping of stalker apologism Stalking is romantic didn't you know?The second main thread is a series of after school specials focusing on the plights of various victim groups It was tedious and predictable Today we will learn about depression Today we will learn about illegal aliens Today we will learn about transsexuals Today we will learn about obesity Today we will learn about beauty Also A doesn't really have a gender and so we will learn about that And so forth Didactic agenda driven and boringBack to the first thread A falls in love with Rhiannon the girlfriend of one of A's hosts The passages describing her are classic Nice Guy crap only A can see her secret sadness only A can see what a kind and interesting person she is only A can see that she wants to be part of the world what does that even mean? and OF COURSE only A can make her happy because she is A's Twoo Wuv So naturally A begins stalking Rhiannon and plotting to get her and her boyfriend broken up so she'll be free to date A You know as Nice Guys do It's even creepier because A is using A's hosts to do so So not only is Rhiannon being stalked and having her privacy violated but also every person who serves as A's host gets violated as well And we are supposed to sympathize with A I can't even express how furious this makes me A is not the victim here Yes A's existence sucks but A is not the victim The people A is possessing AND VIOLATING are the victims A forces A's victims to skip school miss tests miss trips to Hawaii lie to family etc etc All things that A knows full well A's hosts don't want to do A is POSSESSING A's hosts In the beginning A tries to be a good guest go along for the day don't do anything A's host wouldn't do but A's stalkerish obsession with Rhiannon leads A to completely ignore A's own rules The only and I do mean ONLY saving grace of this book is that A finally realizes that what A with the complicity of Rhiannon OMGWTFBB?? is doing to A's hosts is GROSS AND WRONG AND EVIL and goes back to A's original set of rules After violating a couple people first of courseOne last complaint and then I'm done One of A's hosts Nathan who got particularly thoroughly violated retained a partial memory of what had happened to him He had been possessed and forced to do things he didn't want to do He describes his experience as possession and concludes that it must be the work of the devil And the tone of the book regarding this kid is derision That dumbass how can he believe in demonic possession? A isn't the devil What a dummy And the people who believe him are even dumberBut the thing is Nathan WAS possessed He WAS forced to act against his nature by A who had taken over his body As part of A's conflict with Nathan A discovers as previously mentioned that there are other entities like him One such entity has taken over a religious leader and is claiming to help Nathan with his possession experience That entity is pretty clearly malevolent How is that entity's behavior different from demonic possession? And there are MORE entities like this out there And yet the narration thinks that people who believe in demons are stupid and deserve condescension This is like saying Well ok sure I drink human blood to survive and I combust in sunlight and I have to sleep on a bed of my native soil and I don't have a reflection and there are other people like me out there and some of them are malevolent but VAMPIRES DON'T EXIST AND BELIEVING IN VAMPIRES IS STUPID AND YOU ARE STUPID FOR BELIEVING IN THEM What???In conclusion this book has thoroughly earned one of my rare one star reviews I don't recommend it at allA foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds Something Emerson said probably when a logic hobbled buddy of his pointed out a gaping hole in one of his essays

    I am not kissing her because I want to and I am not kissing her because I need to I am kissing her for a reason that transcends want and need that feels elemental to our existence a molecular component on which our universe will be built I have enjoyed Levithan's books in the past but the magic that other readers found in Every Day just wasn't there for meMany claims have been made about this book that it is a clever what if science fiction novel that it explores what it means to be genderless without a body and without a family and that it is an evocative love story I honestly didn't get much sense of any of thatThe story is about A someone who wakes up in a different person's body and life every single morning They have always been this way and have come to accept it Until that is they end up inside the body of a boy called Justin and fall for Justin's girlfriend Rhiannon Suddenly A's many lives revolve around locating Rhiannon and spending time with her Hoping they can be together and knowing that they can'tThe strongest part of this book for me was the many small stories scattered throughout about the different lives A enters They are fleeting varied but often uite interesting and touchingBeyond this though it was a disappointment This same story written by many other authors would be called out for its instalove However I suppose Levithan writes poetically enough that A's relationship with Rhiannon seems deeper when in reality A falls in love with her instantly because she is a sad girl who wants to go to the oceanSecondly there is no explanation at all for the paranormal aspect No attempt to address it no consideration given to why A always wakes up in a body 4 hours or less away from Rhiannon and is always the same age But I can suspend a lot of disbelief and I understand this isn't the kind of book that concerns itself with the hows so that wasn't even a major issueBy far a bigger issue for me was something that many people have praised the book for the uniue perspective from the point of view of someone who is genderless and without a life of their own Wow what an interesting idea right? Indeed it is and yet it is not explored at all There is very little discussion of what it means to be male female both or neither It is taken for granted that these things are meaningless and shrugged off What a wasted opportunity to look at a fascinating subjectSome people look at Every Day and see a very different and beautiful book I look at it and see another YA romance framed in such a way that it can claim to be different without ever really breaking new groundBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Pinterest

    What makes us fall in love and what makes us who we are? Those are the uestions at the heart of this novel which tells a thoughtful touching story that will surprise readers with its sentient literary style and gentle feelingEveryone longs for human connection but 16 year old A's search for it seems to be a losing proposition Every day for as long as he can remember he wakes up in a different body sometimes as a girl sometimes with a different ethnicity sometimes with a different sexual orientation He's long recognized the futility of trying to create lasting relationships but everything changes when he meets Rhiannon a girl who makes him want things he's never thought possibleThis story reminds me of one of my favorite TNG episodes with a similar concept and A also follows a sort of prime directive in his self imposed policy not to interfere too much in his host's life He is for the most part a very likeable protagonist who doesn't wallow in self pity or maudlin emotion and it's interesting to see how skillfully the author retains A's sense of self and personality even within very different people in very different circumstances One of my favorite things about this book is how we catch a glimpse of all the lives that A touches; some of the manifestations are humorous some of them are incredibly sad and some of them are downright harrowing There is also a tension and urgency in the story from various different sources most notably in the form of someone who is relentlessly pursuing A for his own dangerous reasonsThe things that some logic hobbled readers heh I am coining that term won't like about this book are precisely what I do like about it I like the book's uiet philosophical bent and I actually like that we don't get any answers as to why this happens to A Frankly they're not necessary this story isn't about that and had the author attempted to invent specious reasoning for the wheres and whyfores of this concept this would have been a very different book A obviously makes some mistakes in judgments haven't we all? and I do think his relationship with Rhiannon developed rather suddenly as she's a fine enough girl but I never really understood why he liked her so much But for me this all worked within the confines of this story concept I accepted that in the course of living countless lives in A's lifetime something in this girl at this time called out to him And sometimes people just come along at the exact right time in your life when you desperately need it and A is very much in need of being loved And perhaps even importantly he is very much in need of being acknowledged The tenderness between two people can turn the air tender the room tender time itself tender As I step out of bed and slip on an oversize shirt everything around me feels like it's the temperature of happiness Things become very difficult of course once Rhiannon learns about A's uniue circumstance It's hard to fault anyone for having trouble accepting the fantastical premise as well as the reality of living with it because after all a big big part of love relies on both the thrill and the comfort we find in another person's familiar presence The struggle that these two have to reconcile what they want with what is realistic is poignant though ultimately still very hopeful By the end of this pensive bittersweet novel your heart may rend in two because the purest form of love is perhaps when it involves some form of selflessness or self sacrifice But there's a great deal of beauty and comfort to be found in that tooThis is my first time reading David Levithan But it won't be my last This review also appears in The Midnight Garden An advance copy was provided by the publisherRecommended for fans of A Certain Slant of Light for those who were intrigued by the body switching concept in Mercy and for those who might've yearned for a mature tender feeling from Tempest Win an Every Day ARC And make cookies tooWe're giving away an Advance Readers Copy of this book on the blog And hey this review was powered by peanut butter cookies By special reuest from Cassi you can download the free recipe card too

    385 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️“If there's one thing I've learned it's this We all want everything to be okay We don't even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding We will happily settle for okay because most of the time okay is enough”This book was a true clusterfuck of emotions I was engaged from the first moment to the incredibly original concept the simple but effective writing style and the rich main character But I feel like with a concept like this they could have taken it to the next level I feel like while the book was amazing in what it did it could do much much better It could exceed the expected so easily and it would be wonderful to read I can't tell you how that would be possible but it's just an inkling There were so many possibilities that I can't know if they are explored in the next books but they would be fantasticEven though this book could be so much and so much complicated I commend it for its simplicity It's just a person who is in a different body every single day who one day sees a girl and falls in love with her Just as simple as that And apart from that it explores other different situations It's not just a chick flick with a gimmick but a much deeper read with many real and devastating problems And not just problems but it talks about topics of life as well such as religion and gender and suicide and addiction in such a way that it feels so different and fresh and important Because it talks from the prospective of a person who changes bodies every day and gets to actually live all these situations they're talking about And I believe it does an amazing job in that respectApart from all that heavy stuff the romance is just so cute man It has its problems at times but I fell in love with their love I was fucking heartbroken and happy and amused It was so wholesome and beautiful and weird Overall it was a really enjoyable hard at times but easy to digest read which is than just a chick flick I would truly recommend it for people especially who enjoy weird gimmicks in their books Till the next time k bye

    Can you imagine waking up every day in the body of someone else? Pretending to be them for a day? Being them for a day? Your soul traveling from body to body restlessDavid Levithan is a very deep type of guy on his way to becoming a philosopher as I like to believe He creates stories that tackle realities of modern life and depicts profound lead characters that have something intelligent and thoughtful to say about the worldAt first I wasn’t convinced about the whole concept I thought it would make the characters feeble in personality or keep us from getting attached to them somehow Man was I wrong This book isn’t a compilation of short stories in the ‘‘slice of life’’ style It’s way than that This reading felt to me like an introduction to the world and to people who inhabit itSince we’re honest here I didn’t love everything about it The romance most precisely is what kept me from enjoying it fully and thoroughly although I am pretty satisfied with the result I mean come on there’s such a cheesy love story I know that Rhiannon is not the first girl A meets but since he does meet her in the ‘‘first chapter’’ for us it does feel that way again for us The author tries to make her look especially angelic and special but she’s sadly the kind of girl we’ve all met dozens and times in our livesBut well it’s not like I expected the romance to knock my socks off And if that’s not what you’re expecting either you should end up pretty pleased with the book too

    The concept for the story is intriguing A is a person that inhabits another person's body for one day Sometimes A is a boy sometimes a girl A can inhabit different colors of skin and different shapes and sizes A tries to minimize the impact of occupying the body A is supposedly not judgmental Whatever body A inhabits is fine with AThe story is I believe about acceptance People come in all shapes sizes genders and orientations There is no preference given the above mentioned categories Biology does play a part in a person's makeup as demonstrated by the chemically depressed girl A inhabited one day which was moving and empathetic Very well written Also well written is the chemical dependence of the addict and physical pain A felt and the act of defying the urge by staying in the bedroom until the end of the day enduringYet I feel like Leviathan is preachy about his own beliefs pushing his viewpoint whether than just letting the reader think The lack of understanding that gender might effect Rhiannon's attraction and the implication that she is wrong for that isn't fair I'm only attracted to men Does that make me a bad person? Even though being attracted to one gender is common A pushes the idea that it's wrong and judgmental which feels judgmental to me Much of the storyline focuses on gender and orientation rather than acceptance of each person Not that the author doesn't attempt this topic because he does The protagonist inhabits a 300 lb boy an addict a boy grieving for his grandfather a mean girl a football player a deeply depressed girl Yet the recurring theme tends toward gender being a societal construct rather than a biological reality Love is love no matter what There is lesbian love homosexual males in a gay pride parade a transgender female going through hormone changing injections with a girlfriend a past where A fell in love when occupying a boy's body with another boy and began a romantic relationship yet I don't recall although I may be mistaken a healthy heterosexual relationship portrayed throughout the book Additionally the topic of religion is brushed upon but not in a favorable light I did like the summation that religions share a great deal of commonalities because I agree with this especially when clarified with the differences being the history of their church and origin But overall humans believe in a higher power and a greater purpose However brushing religion under the carpet as being unimportant is rather condescending Despite the commonalities of all religions I'd wager that identifying with a religion is one of the top 5 characteristics of most people Perhaps because my sexual orientation is just assumed I don't typically ualify myself as heterosexual The concept of this book is interesting but overall it's a romance It carries all the cheesy declarations of loves that come with that If the book had focused less on the romance and been well rounded in it's portrayals of different belief systems it would've probably rated higher for me It seems to want people to understand different viewpoints without fairly attempting to understand theirs Faith being portrayed so inaccurately is very frustrating especially when it's also unnecessary

    I wake up the next morning in Beyonce's body 35 stars I think I hated this book even though I was drawn into it like a moth to a flame And by hate I mean that I did like the book but found myself frustrated because I was forced to uestion every single damn thing There was something about the entire story that suffocated the hell out of me My head hurt from trying to figure out how all of 'this' was supposed to work My heart hurt from the presumed hopelessness of the situation Yet I still kept reading There has to be some talent hidden in the storytelling if I find myself continuing to work my way toward an ending of which I'm uncertain will be positive or negative The closer I got to the end the worried I became Yet I still kept readingIf there was ever a book which would make for a great book club discussion this would probably be it The range of opinion would uite possibly be vast People who tend to want specifics for every detail would pick everything apart while the dreamers would want to imagine how to change the situation So much happiness can only make me sad Our main character in this book is never described as male or female A is a being who wakes up every day in a different body This person is the very definition of walking a mile in someone else's shoes Mainly it's because A has never had shoes of hisher own This is not my body but it's the body she wants I feel like a pretender I often tend to put myself in the place of the lead character in stories and find myself wondering what I would do in the same situation To be completely honest I know that I could probably never survive a life in which I never was allowed to have at least one person to call my own whether it was a parent sibling friend or lover How could ANY one person survive waking up every morning in a different body without wanting to finally give up on life? Even knowing that A had always lived like this and knew nothing else I kept wondering how A was not constantly envious of at least some of the people that A had inhabited So of course love would have to come in and complicate things The connection between A and Rhiannon was bittersweet Their friendship was a challenge every step of the way I never want to stay I'm always ready to leave But not tonight Tonight I'm haunted by the fact that tomorrow he'll be here and I won't be I want to stay I pray to stay I close my eyes and wish to stay Other than having to find my way out of a paper bag by the time I was finished reading I don't have any major complaints other than one At times there did seem to be some repetition with a few of the author's opinions I would have preferred the sexuality side of the story to have been a touch organic with the surroundings The characters were who they were That should have been the beauty of it all the varied cast of characters I would have appreciated the variety much if I didn't feel like I was being lectured to uestion my beliefs on sexuality when I hadn't given any sort of opinion in the first place This book felt like a bit of a soap box at times In the end I was glad that I'd read about the journey of A but found myself frustrated that heshe was a better person than I wanted himher to be at times Where was A's one selfish moment? When you get to keep nothing in life would you for at least ONE day choose to do what you wanted even if it meant screwing with the path of someone else? I'm pretty sure that I would I want to get back to her I want to get back to yesterday

    This is a interesting concept for a book 🤔 A person a soul maybe 🤷🏼‍♀️ jumps bodies every day It tackles a lot of different things as each person host body is uniue Of course there’s a love interest But how in the world are you supposed to have a real relationship with someone when you’re a different person each day? This follows ‘A’ who was born with this strange ability I’d have liked some answers like is this a soul? anywho It was fascinating enough 😉

    Wow This was such a feast for my eyes and mind My thoughts after finishing the book SO GOOD I didn't even have time to mark it as currently reading this is how lost into the story I've been One of the best books I've read in uite a whileFull reviewRomance aside this story is about people All kinds of people in all kinds of scenarios with different lives and in different environments It's the most wonderful book about what it means to be humanIt takes you on a journey around the world not physically but emotionally it travels through space and bodies and it talks about so many taboo subjects that you can't even imagine This my dears it's a real piece of art “I wake up thinking of yesterdayThe joy is in remembering; the pain is in knowing it was yesterday” You can learn a lesson from almost every chapter you can be in the body and somehow even the mind of all kinds of people struggling with their problems creating others trying to fix the unfixable or to keep untouched the precious moments in their livesYou learn that actions have always conseuences that when you change things you have to assume the responsibility for doing so; you get glimpses into the head of so many types of people and at the end of the day not only you can learn a thing or two from it but you can really become a better personIt's not that the concept is entirely original I remember seeing when I was young a movie series uite similar to this but the amount of research needed for this story and the perfection with which it has been implemented turns this book into a real gem It's fresh it's well written it is addictive and so full of precious contentThere are few books that have left an imprint on my life; this is definitely one of thoseI love this guy I mean the author he is so smart and open He talks about so many things with conviction but without trying to make you believe the things he does; he gives you the good and the bad in all situations and I must confess that reading this book and being just for a bit in his mind while doing so felt really really goodNow about the charactersI'll start with A and RhiannonAs you should know from the book description A which is a name by the way does not have a body He is just a soul spending each day on a different body We think of him as a boy but in fact he has no gender and each day he can be a boy or a girl having no control over where his soul might wake up in the next morning He doesn't know why it happens so don't try to find out because this is not what this story is aboutAll days are similar he wakes up tries to find out what he can about the person he has to be that day and tries not to mess up things for that person because the lives he lives are borrowed and he has no right to ruin them I only have a day to give so why can't it be a good one? One day is different though He is impersonating one guy called Justin and falls in love with his girlfriend Justin is not a good person and he is not good forto Rhiannon but wouldn't A want to be Justin for the rest of his life? Wouldn't he want to wake up in the morning and still be here wouldn't he want to have Rhiannon in his life forever?It's a day that changes him it's a day that changes everything And so the story startsFor you it might feel like A starts liking Rhiannon too uickly it might feel like insta love but try to picture A's life try to imagine a life when every single day is different a life where you meet a person today but you might never be given a second chance How long it would take for you to give away your heart how long it will take for you to fall in love?Day by day A gains information about her he tries to see her again and with everything he learns about her day after day he gets to care to truly love her for the way she thinks she acts she feels My life doesn't add up to anything Except for an afternoon it did Truth being told all A needed was to belong he needed something palpable in his life and so he found RhiannonShe is for him a symbol of everything he can't have It seemed like love at first sight but in his world that's the only kind of love he can get There is no way to meet again someone and to relive a day such that he could fall in love in the usual way So I didn't mind him focus all his attention on this girl that has stolen his heart and that he can't possibly have because every day he becomes someone elseIn a way this is how Romeo and Juliet should play around in our days the concept not the Shakespearian play with the entire universe against our sweet couple Some will love their story some probably won't but don't think about the whole book as a romance because you'll be missing a lot that's the reason all this started yes but there are many other amazing things about it that will steal your heart This is what love does It makes you want to rewrite the world It makes you want to choose the characters build the scenery guide the plot The person you love sits across from you and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible endlessly possible And when it’s just the two of you alone in a room you can pretend that this is how it is this is how it will be There were so many other characters that are worth talking about so many destinies that A changed so many lessons to learn from There were happy moments and sad ones there are tons of uotes that will make an impression for sure there are so many great ideas hidden between the pages the lines the words in this book Nothing feels like it has been 'spilled' at random in this sea of magical thoughts and there are not enough words in the world for me to tell you how wonderful this story was to meI loved the stories of every person A impersonates during his travelDrug addict fat person geek gay transgender homeschooled mean girl rock boy suicidal girl and so on and on and on there was a selected group of people that canwill leave an impact on you You might not relate to any of them but you can understand them all They all speak through A's voice and you might ask yourself if this is the author telling you life changing stories or the characters are really alive talking to you they are so realistically portrayedI remember a chapter that I liked a lot There was a drug addict that needed badly to take a doze and A kept fighting it fighting his body's needs he tried to stay focused to think of a way to make it through the day he tried not to let the body win It was such an emotional chapter and it gave insights into the power of the mind something I've thought about over the timeOn each day either the body was weighting on A or the feelings were be pressing on him He could feel the sorrow the despair the addiction but also the happiness the calm the hope and the love It was such a beautiful orchestra of emotions playing in front of you one that you can focus on each individual instrument and their beautiful heartwarming musicThere are also references regarding morality some social issues are talked about and even Christian beliefs are considered Every scene has its own emotion every person gives you something to think about every moment is important because there's always some meaning behind the taleAnd because I don't know in how many other words to tell you that I loved this book to pieces I will simply end on a nice note I turn back I keep turning back to see her Even when there are walls between us Even when there are miles between us I keep turning back I keep turning in her direction Just like I'll always turn back to this storyHappy midnight reading This review can also be found at ReadingAfterMidnightcom Blog EN | Facebook | Twitter | Tumblr | Bloglovin' | Blog RO

    ”We all contain mysteries especially when seen from the inside”I don’t know how to start this review because this book is unlike anything I ever read and this comes from a person who has rated 862 books on goodreads Yes I actually looked it up ; P The story David Levithan presents to us is something so uniue I can’t compare it to anything I ever read and I don’t know about you but I for my part love it even for that XD So what exactly is “Every Day” about? ”I no longer think she’s just being nice She’s being kind Which is much a sign of character than mere niceness Kindness connects to who you are while niceness connects to how you want to be seen”Well the concept of this story is pretty intriguing A our MC is living every day in someone else’s body and sort of travels from one person to the next A has no memory why herhis life is like that or why shehe doesn’t have an own body It was always like that and A learned to deal with it So what happens when A inhabits a body? Well our MC “accesses” the memories of the person and then lives that one day like the person shehe currently occupies The mere idea of living in a different body every single day and experiencing a different life every 24 hours Gosh it’s mind boggling ”If you think about it hard enough every step can be a false step any move can lead to an unintended conseuence”I’m not going to lie; at first the prospect of waking up in a different body and therefore in a different life every day sounded kind of interesting The time I spent with A the I realized that this is a horrible way to live your life though A never has a chance to live herhis own life All A can do is to live the person’s life shehe is currently inhabiting and yes sometimes that’s a nice life but at other times it’s an awful and harrowing one and A has to deal with the conseuences Not everyone is average or beautiful and not everyone has caring parents or siblings Sometimes there are lives that are grim and gruesome and A just tries to get through them ”Yes I could get away with it but certainly we all have the potential to commit the crime We choose not to Every single day we choose not to I am no differentI am not the devil”Another thing that made me love A was the fact that shehe takes care of the person shehe is occupying A always tries not to interfere with the lives shehe takes over which makes A a saint in my eyes I mean the next day A would be in a different body so A could do everything shehe wants and would easily get away with it The next day the person who would have to deal with the conseuences isn’t A so the potential to misbehave was certainly there but A does none of those things A doesn’t want to hurt the people shehe possesses and I really appreciated that XD ”But shouldn’t her life come above yours?”“Why?”“Because you’re just the guest”I know this is true but it’s shocking to hear her say itStill my heart bled for A whenever shehe was confronted with that particular reality If it would be you would you be content with always being just a guest? What about A’s own wishes? A’s own life? Can you really expect A just to lead the lives of others and never to do something egoistic? A is herhis own person craves for love has feelings like everyone else but can never act on them can never get attached because the next day shehe is gone again What a miserable existence TT Well and the fact that A falls in love with Rhiannon certainly doesn’t help either ”This is the source of the pressure This is the cause of my hesitation Right now I am here with her completely But tomorrow I may not be I can enjoy this today It can feel right now But tomorrow I don’t know Tomorrow I may be gone”Which brings me right to the pan and gender fluid rep They were both done really well and I loved how A explained them with just a few words It must have been really confusing for A at first though and I’m glad A eventually figured it out I swear this book posed so many uestions and to talk about all of them would probably make another essay review lol I guess this is already some sort of an essay again but umm never mind ; P ”In my experience desire is desire love is love I have never fallen in love with a gender I have fallen for individuals I know this is hard for people to do but I don’t understand why it’s so hard when it’s so obvious” ”There were days I felt like a girl and days I felt like a boy and those days wouldn’t always correspond with the body I was in I still believed everyone when they said I had to be one or the other Nobody was telling me a different story and I was too young to think for myself I had yet to learn that when it came to gender I was both and neither”All told this book gave me A LOT to think about and I’m pretty sure it will preoccupy my thoughts for uite a while The ending alone posed so many uestions that I’m kind of indecisive whether I want to read the other two books or not lol On the one hand I want A to be happy and to find a solution but on the other hand I’m not all too sure this would be good for A or anyone else XD To say I’m torn is putting it than just mildly XD Especially if we take Reverend Poole into the euation as well view spoiler ”There was no hesitation No warning No acknowledgment of the lives we’d be destroyingThat’s when I knew for sure I had to run away”I’m still shook I would have never expected that Reverend Poole was occupied by someone like A too So there are people like A and shehe isn’t the only one The ruthlessness and disregard for the people Reverend Poole possesses scared me big time though I think A did the right thing by going into hiding but I’m afraid whoever inhabited Reverend Poole is going to hunt and find him nevertheless hide spoiler
