Reviews Everything, Everything

  • Emily May
    This is a book I expected to LOVE.It's a book many of my GR friends have loved.It's a book I was kind of liking until the thing happens......the thing that just cheapens the entire story.I have been dying to read Everything, Everything. The reviews were all positive, it received a Kirkus star, it sounded so different... all these reasons added up to one of my most anticipated reads of the year. And it started quite beautifully-written with dive...
  • Kat O'Keeffe
    Really impressed with this one! Cute romance, funny dialogue, and the format/illustrations made this even more fun and unique. I also thought this book did a fantastic job at balancing the lightheartedness with the more serious stuff. Personally, I could've done with a bit more resolution at the end--it felt a little rushed, and I would've liked to linger for a few more pages. Also, there were some things that didn't quite add up when I stopped t...

  • Zoë
    4.5/5I really enjoyed this, especially the last 1/3 of the book! It had a unique premise, a great main character, a nice romance, and a great message. I recommend to all of you looking for a good quick read, whether you are usually a fan of YA romance or not!

    I was super excited when I read the description and heard the hype, but this story ended up being one of the worst things I've ever read. I’m in a very similar "bubble girl” situation as the main character, who has to stay in her house because going outside would kill her. But, (view spoiler)[ she actually doesn’t have any condition. It’s all a mistake/her life is a lie. (hide spoiler)] The cop-out ending combined with the tagline of “t...
  • Khanh (the Grinch)
    This book is about a the most special different unique girl half black-half-Japanese girl in the world who has a super ultra extraordinarily rare disease which nobody can figure out which makes her allergic to everything, therefore she has to stay inside all day, who meets a boy who moves in next door, and it is exactly as boring as it sounds. There is such a thing as trying too hard.I feel nothing for our doomed character. I don't really care th...
  • Wendy Darling
    4.5 stars Pretty damned close to perfect. And this one is going to make a lot of top 10 lists this year, including mine. Review to come.
  • Steph Sinclair
    I loved everything, everything about this book. *hugs book closely* review to come.
  • Raeleen Lemay
    *4.5/5*WeeEooOOW. THIS WAS GREAT. You guys know I typically despise romance in YA novels, but the relationship and the characters in this book were SO CUTE and so well done that I couldn't do anything but love them. Really unique main character, and the ending was sort of open which I felt worked really well with how the story went.
  • Lola Reviewer
    When I first saw this book and read its synopsis, I mentally took a step back. ‘‘Hey, didn’t I already read this one before?’’ A big déjà vu moment occurred. I, of course, was thinking about the novel Magonia which features a character with a similar disease… except, in Magonia, the heroine is slowly dying but able to wander outside, while Maddy can’t leave her own house but everything inside her functions normally when she’s in...
  • Cait (Paper Fury)
    Wow. This novel is severely messed up. I'm still trying to figure out if I'm pleased or if I loathed it. Yup it's that kind of book. GOSH. It's just 100% opposite to what I expected. What even haaaappened. So Madeline has SCID and is basically allergic to EVERYTHING. Bummer, right? She lives in this completely closed off house, has a nurse, does all her school online, and never ever ever ever leaves the house. Her brother and father died in a car...

    “Just because you can’t experience everything doesn’t mean you shouldn’t experience anything.” This was a combination of We Were Liars and The Fault In Our Stars. What concerns me is the We Were Liars part. Let me explain.This is a very dialouge-driven novel. Thoughtful but simple, cute and maybe a little cheesy. There's a whiff of insta-love but that isn't what bothered me. It's the plot.1. (view spoiler)[Madeline is sick. She cannot l...
  • Shelby *trains flying monkeys*
    3.5 stars rounded up. Because it was a cute story dammit.My disease is as rare as it is famous. It's a form of Severe Combined Immunodeficiency, but you know it as "bubble baby disease".Madeline is allergic to the world. Just about anything can make her sick and that would be the end for her. Her world exists of her doctor mom, her nurse Carla and her books. Her books have to come to her vacuum sealed so that no contaminants can get to her. She h...

  • Maggie
    ❝Love is a terrible thing and its loss is even worse.Love is a terrible thing and I want nothing to do with it.❞ The only reason why I decided to buy Everything, Everything was because it's currently checked out by my friend from the library and I had been wanting to read this novel for so long, I couldn't wait any longer. Typical Maggie sees books at Target and decides to buy 4, all being some available at the library but wanting to be bough...
  • Justin
    Alright, alright... four stars. Fine. I did it. We're good. But let's talk about how much I wanted to hate this stupid book. Oh I don't know, maybe because it borrows from like every popular young adult novel ever written. Funny illustrations, one sentence chapters, hipster chapter titles, nods to classic films and books, unique spins on popular board games, boys who wear black, Tumblr book reviews, mushy romance, wild unchaperoned craziness, the...

    "Maybe we can't predict everything, 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." Can we first just talk about this cover??? Amazing right?! Stunning. It fits the story so well.Everything Everything is a novel about a girl named Madeline who is suffering from SCID... or as I knew it "bubble boy syndrome". Madeline has spent the last 18 years trapped i...
  • Whitney Atkinson
    This book was overall enjoyable, and the first half I absolutely adored! Amazing writing, realistic characters. I love how Olly was smart, but not wise beyond his years *cough* John Green *cough*. However, the last half of this book just went by too fast, developed instalove, was unrealistic, and predictable. Amazing idea, but the way the book was written (unrealistically) i was able to guess the outcome, which was frustrating because it could ha...

    4.5*Video review to come!Took off a half star because I have very mixed feelings about the last bit
  • P
    “Maybe growing up means disappointing the people we love.” Actually I don't read contemporary YA that much, I've tried to avoid them for no reason, but I really loved this Everything, Everything book. It has a thing that impressed me deeply and made me reconsider about my life again. Growing up is not easy, especially when your thought is against your parents' and they try to protect you at all cost. Maddie never sees the real world for has ...
  • Aj the Ravenous Reader
    3.5 stars Brief intermission Madeline’s question: "Who actually slaps their knee while laughing?"Aj’s answer: "Uh, fifty percent of the Filipino population, I think?!" *slaps her knee while laughing* -end of intermission-^^Everything, everything about the first eighty percent of this book is adorable in a “this-is-so-cute-I-want-to-pinch and smooch you” way. The story line is something very new because Madeline, a half-Japanese, half -A...

    4 stars! In the beginning there was nothing. And then there was everything. Everything Everything is one of those books that made me think, feel, and appreciate all the little things in my life I may take for granted every day. It’s book #5 in my YA Challenge of 2016. It had a bit of a slow start for me, but once it picked up I didn’t want to stop reading! Madeline was diagnosed with a rare disease as a child. SCID. Because of this, she can...

    4.5 StarsI was completely blown away by this book. Everything, Everything is the story of a girl named Madeline who has spent her life living in a bubble. When she was a baby it was discovered that she has SKID, a rare allergy to practically everything. Because of this Maddy is not able to leave the sanctity of her home. In order for people to come see her they have to go through rigorous medical examinations and a decontamination upon entering t...
  • Alienor ✘ French Frowner ✘ (of badger and SNAKE)
    Edit : it's been brought to my attention that Everything, Everything was incredibly ableist. I am not disabled, so I didn't understand it at the time and I'm sorry about that. That's why I changed my rating. In any case, please check a review written by an #ownvoice reviewer before reading, I wouldn't want people to trust my word and be hurt because of it. For example : http://disabilityinkidlit.com/2015/09... or https://www.goodreads.com/review/...

    Everything, Everything is such an incredible story of girl suffering from SCID "Severe combined immunodeficiency" Madeline was born without an immun system, People with SCID have a defect in their immune system that leaves them vulnerable to potentially deadly infections. She spends her time learning online, reading books, occasionally chatting with her mom and a nurse. unTil ... one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, an...
  • April (Aprilius Maximus)
    Reread 7/9/15 THIS BOOK. Since this year started, I've read over 50 books. That's a lot of books. And out of those 50+ books, this one is by far my favourite of the year so far. To me, it was just miles ahead of everything else I have read this year. I am honestly in awe of Nicola Yoon and this BEAUTIFUL book. I am officially obsessed.So you can probably tell that I'm already gushing and am struggling to form coherent sentences and that is becaus...
  • Jamie-leigh Haughn
    This book was EVERYTHING... everything.I loved it so much! The characters were more than your typical YA characters, the story has twists and turns that I didn't expect. It did have some predictable moments as many stories like this does, but I didn't mind it at all. I love the relationship build up, there was an element of instalove, but not in your typical sense, it was more like instacrush but that is very true to real life. I highly recommend...
  • Sara
    So this book was such a quick and enjoyable read. I loved the light and refreshing writing style and the unique plot. I'm only rating it 4 stars because for some reason I felt like it was lacking something. I can't quite put my finger on what it was because overall I really loved this book. I thought the characters were great and the love story was so0o0o0o cute. I'm in love with Olly. #MarryMeOlly(I've decided Olly will be played by Dylan O'Brie...
