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 di...

    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...

    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!

    3 Stars. Unfortunately, I was a little let down by Everything Everything. I have heard people raving about it since 2015, I've been dying to read it since 2015. I can't exactly tell if it was just overhyped (by others and myself) or if the book just all around was not the best for me.The overarching positive thing I have to say about this book is that it was entertaining. Although I wasn't 100% satisfied with the story as a whole, I wanted to kee...

    “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...

    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.
  • Cristina Monica
    I can see how this book might be offensive to some people (if you've read it, you know exactly what I'm talking about), but the author absolutely didn't mean it to be and it is just fiction. Plus, if we want to be mad at someone, we should be mad at a specific character. Just sayin'. When I first saw this book and read its synopsis, I mentally took a step back. ‘‘Hey, didn’t I read this one already?’’ A big déjà vu moment occurred. I,...
  • jessica
    confession time: i actually saw the film first before i read this, which i rarely do. but in this case, it didnt bother me at all! bookworm blasphemy, i know! :Peven though i already knew the story beforehand, the book still had plenty to offer. i especially loved the little nuances and details of maddys notes - it made the story so much more tangible and easier to accept, because lets be honest. this story is a little unrealistic at times (i gue...
  • 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.
  • Anne
    Buddy read with Mini-me!Ok. So this isn't my kind of book. There is literally nothing about the blurb that would tempt me to read something like this of my own free will. Unless this chick sported some mutant powers, came from another planet, or fought vampires in her spare time? No. Everything...everything...about this story sounds sappy and gross. Gonna have to give it a HARD pass.And let me go ahead and apologize to all the people who feel mar...

    “Everything’s a risk. Not doing anything is a risk. It’s up to you.”I’ve had about 36 hours to think about “Everything, Everything” and now that I’m actually beginning to write this review I still don’t know how I feel about the book. It’s a really good and interesting story and to claim that it didn’t captivate me definitely would be a lie. So why do I have those mixed feelings? And why is it still so hard to sort out my fe...
  • 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...

    It's difficult to live when everything in the world kills you.In this moderately short but powerful novel we learn the story of Madeline "Maddy" Whittier, a fragile seventeen year old young lady with SCID, also known as the "bubble boy" disease.Isolated from the outside world, from everything, and everyone, Madeline lives secluded in a completely sterilized house; with a protective mother and a dedicated nurse that constantly checks her medical c...

I can't give out spoilers! This book must be read!! Oh. My. God. I CAN NOT believe what Maddy goes through. And the ending! I thought I was going to have a panic attack reading what happens!!!!Madeline Whittier (Maddy) has SCID, basically meaning she is allergic to everything and...

    4.5*Video review to come!Took off a half star because I have very mixed feelings about the last bit
  • 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...
  • Angela
    "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...

    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...

    When the ending doesn't matter...I, like a lot of you, I'm sure, totally called the ending of this thing before I even opened the book - and, for once, I didn't even care. I really enjoyed this story and the characters. And I really love Yoon's writing style. The mixed media format was really fun and creative and I had a lot of fun with it. I have read a LOT of books in my life - over 1700 - and, I must say, this is the first time I have ever fou...
  • elena
    UPDATE: 7/31/17I'm deciding this is actually 2 stars because as I educate myself further with mental illness', I realize this "love cures all" thing isn't the solution to everything, for everyone, and that's something this book had. Love that cured "the problem." Also, (view spoiler)[ the fact that the mental illness was never really even true yet the love conquers all is? How did that work? Her falling in love cured her fake mental illness? Make...
  • Frankie Lovely
    2.5 starsFind this review and others at A Thousand Lives of Frankie Lovely blogI really did not love this book really at all ... oops? The Story Madeline Whittier lives in a bubble. No seriously she suffers from SCID, also known as bubble boy syndrome. She has never left her house, her bubble. She has no friends except her mother and nurse. She is alone. Until one day, a black clad, daredevil boy moves in next door.What I Liked There were some in...

    Second Read: August 11, 2017First Read: November 4, 2015Wow! I didn’t think I’d like it even more the second time around. Just look at the amount of time I spent copying quotes and excerpts and taking photos of the pages. “WHO IS AFFECTED BY HAR? (Hysterical Abdominal Rhopalocera)The disease affects at least one teenaged American girl every 30 seconds” and a particular 31 year old woman in the Philippines everytime she’s reading a swe...
  • Mel
    DNF. Spoilers to insue. Too much insta love. I also hate girls who throw away their entire lives for a guy and only care about him and focus only on him. Her mom has no one else in the world to talk to and she's getting ignored because Madeline has a boy in her life. And really? Running away because you can't see a boy?And the VERY predictable end: not only is it predictable. Kind of dumb. It's hard for me to believe that she never talked to anot...

  • James Trevino
    Well, this was as YA as they get, with all the good and bad things that come with that.Let’s start with the good: the characters are likable. This is probably why I gave this 4 stars instead of 3. Both Maddy and Olly are interesting enough to make you turn pages. That being said, we have almost instalove here. Gosh, I wish I would understand why YA authors always do that. I’m not saying their love story is badly written. Just that it happens ...
