Book Review Discussion: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Book: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Genre: YA Contemporary
For: Beehive Award long list
From: The library

Short Synopsis: Maddy has a disease that forces her to stay inside her air sealed house. If she is exposed to germs at all, she'll get deathly sick and probably die. It's just how it is. Then one day when she sees the new guy move in next door, she is fascinated and for the first time, she wonders what life is like outside and feels bugged by all the stuff she's missing.

My Response: I'd heard so much about this one! So it was with great anticipation that I dived into it! And let's just say I read it pretty much in a day. Very engaging and romantic and fun! A few nail biting moments and a lovely twisty ending. And yet another awesome book boy to love. I don't know what else to say except that it pretty much lived up to all the buzz I've seen!

Let's Talk About: I'm giving it five stars because of the "read it in a day" aspect, and how engaged I was. Some of us have had talks about this, about what merits a five star rating or not. I tend to think that it's not that big of deal and if I really enjoyed a book, might as well show it! Put my stars where my review is! Or something. Do you agree? Or do you feel that five stars should only be reserved for those books that are, like, out of this world mind boggling amazing?

Other Reviews:

It will take hold of your soul, I guarantee, leaving you with a sense of hope, of inspiration and joy. From Jenn's Book Shelves

Wow. People have been saying all sorts of great things about this book, and I have to agree. This was fantastic! From Sarah Reads Too Much

And all I can say in conclusion is read this book. And when you're done, read it again. From I'm Lost in Books

Enjoy–I envy anyone reading it for the first time! From Reading Rants


  1. You know how I feel about five stars. They're reserved for my favorite books, but it's based on enjoyment not literary value. I'm much more a story vs. a prose person. I'd rather had a great story and awful prose than great prose and an awful story. It's always nice when I get both. ;)

  2. I love how generous you are with your stars. I need to be more generous with mine. If I like a book why am I always looking for something to dock a star for? I need to stop doing that. I need to get my hands on this one too. Books that are unputdownable are always worthy of one more star in my opinion.

  3. I'm with you on awarding stars! My 5 star reviews are a mix of those that I think are objectively awesome and those that were an awesome reading experience.
