“I didn’t mean to do it. I didn’t mean to fall in love with you. But it happened. And I can’t erase it. I can’t ignore it.”
Can you imagine waking up in a different body every single day??
For A he doesn’t just imagine it, he lives it. A wakes up in a different body every day without warning. A knows what not to do. Don’t interfere with anyone’s life. Don’t get attached. Don’t get noticed.
But that all changes, the moment A meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. A can’t fall in love. He knows that but he’s never felt like this about anyone before. Now that he finally has a reason to stay… Can love truly conquer all?
Buying Every Day was an impulse for me. When my friend saw this cover and showed it to me, I fell in love with it. After I read the synopsis, I couldn’t let the book go. This book was also recommended by my sister and friends so I knew I had to read it.
“Kindness connects to who you are, while niceness connects to how you want to be seen.”
Oh, how this book changed my life! This book made me realize how many stories people have. Each and everyone of us lead different lives and because A gets to live a different life every day, he gets to experience it. Though he doesn’t have stories of his own, he has other stories to tell. I think that that’s both wonderful and sad.
I can’t imagine how A does it. The concept is just amazing. Being yourself is already hard, but if you have to be a different person every day?! that’s just insane.
A already lives a life of no attachment but then A meets Rhiannon. OH, GOD. I love Rhiannon. She is really kind and just so herself. I hate it that she’s with Justin though. Justin is very douchy. I don’t like him one bit but because she has a fear of change, Rhiannon just can’t seem to let him go… but that all changes one day— when A is Justin.
“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.”
A and Rhiannon’s relationship is VERY complicated. Okay, complicated is an understatement. I should say impossible but I was a believer. Even with the complications, I was rooting for them. They are just two pieces of adorable. I love how A and her made each other better. The way A loved her, it felt so tangible while I was reading it. It just made my heart swell.
“I have no such consolation. This is why I cling so hard. This is why this is so hard.”
This book made me wonder, learn and it broke my heart… I felt weak after I read it. I was telling my mom that I didn’t want to leave the house cause I just wanted to think about it. It made me just a little bit crazy… I could honestly say this book touched me. It is beautiful. My very first David Levithan book and I absolutely adore it. I would recommend this book to everyone! Go and read it. I know you would want to be part of A and Rhiannon’s love story!
PS: Another Day which is Every Day book 2 is almost out! Can’t wait to read that.
