The Sun is Also a Star Review
The Sun Is Also a Star - Nicola Yoon

Another amazing book I loved that the story was a simply about a girl who loved science and believed that everything that happens has a scientific reason behind it, along comes guy who wants to try and convince this girl that he can make her fall in love with her by the end of the day and that it has nothing to do with science but fate and the way that they feel. The girl has nothing better to do with her day and its a really fluffy read that does get a little deep but it wasn't too much for me to handle so I thought it was brilliant. I found myself really absorbed in the characters lives and i was hoping and praying that everything would work out.

 

Nichola Yoon writes this brilliant because there is the perspective of both he girl and the guy but there is also the perspective of the universe which is a great touch. Nicola Yoon approached the subject of different race and cultures brilliant and it was done softly she didn't say that oe was better than the other and because she was doing it from young people's eyes the problems where something that you could understand.

I will read ANYTHING that Nichola Yoon publishes I love her work !!!

Everything Everything Review
Everything, Everything - Nicola Yoon

Author: Nicola Yoon

Pages 310

Published: 1st September

 

This review has been a long time coming but a lot has been going on but I am finally getting back o track with my reading

 

This book is a heart-warming and powerful debut novel, and I loved every minute of the book and totally deserves the 5 star rating I have gave it. I am not going to spoil because it deserves to be read and loved people.

 

The book is centred around a young teenage girl who is allergic to EVERYTHING and one day she looks outside her window and see's a boy names Olly and the rest is an amazing and heart wrenching story.

 

Something that I think makes this book so good was the fact that the chapters were so short which meant I could get a quick chapter in when I was busy but had 5 minutes to spare, with the chapters being so short it meant that each one held a stronger meaning each time I finished the chapter, some of the chapters had pictures in like doodles and I thought that it added to the detail of the story because some authors wouldn't think of putting detail into something that might seem irrelevant and that can be shown via the descriptive writing.

 

I ADORED this book and it left me thinking about it so much once I had finished it and for a debut novel it was amazing and I can not wait to read more of Nicola Yoon writing.

Everything,Everything by Nicola Yoon
Everything, Everything - Nicola Yoon

 A huge thanks to Random House Children's & Netgalley for allowing me to review this book. All opinions are my own! 

 

You can get your own copy September 1st!

 

  Madeline Whittier has lived her entire life inside of her house due to a rare disease (SCIDS) that causes her immune system to be extremely weak and causes her to react badly to virtually everything. Inside of her house with a specialized air filter, she lives her life ordering all of her needs online and from there they are disinfected and sealed air tight. She's never wanted anything more...until new neighbors move in next door. That's when she sees Olly for the first time, and her world opens up into a new perspective. 

 

~~~~~~~~

    Before I even begin reviewing the content of this book, I'd like to mention the BEAUTIFUL cover. And the title? GENIUS. As you go through life, everything changes and I really do believe that is one of the most important parts of growing up. To be under 'house arrest' your entire life prevents you from living. Mrs.Yoon did such an amazing job on this novel.

  

   Now, for the part you're all here to read. Once you crack open this book, you'll quickly find that it's not only a book, but someone's life. I know, I know. That's almost every book's aim, to follow someone's life as it changes and to show how the character grows over time. However, I don't think you'll find an example better than in this book. Madeline has literally spent her last 18 years of life home bound. You often hear people complain that they want to go home but what if that was the ONLY place you could go? You'd be quick to change your mind.

 

    Being home at all times with only your mom and home nurse as company, you would think that one would quickly spiral into a deep depression. This miraculously doesn't happen. Our MC Is an exceptional female character who strives to only see the best in everything. I do think this contributes to her never experiencing anything truly bad in her life (that she remembers, at least) and so she automatically assumes that there is nothing she should think of as sad. (For example, being stuck in her house 24/7 with no real human interactions.) I wish I could remain as optimistic as Madeline but life doesn't always allow that. 

 

                                                          RELATIONSHIPS 

    What's odd is in the beginning and for most of the middle of this book, Madeline had me completely fooled that her interactions were good enough and was enough to get her through her entire life. Friday dinners, movie nights, and occasional (more like rare!) visits from her online teachers. I feel like she coped with the lack of humans (that brings emotions, tension in the air, etc.) by spending all of her time reading and doing school work. She had MANY school projects and it was filler time until she slept or had another scheduled activity. 

 

  OLLY

    What do you mean I'm writing a whole area of Olly? Whaaat? But in all seriousness, Olly is perfection. He's been put in a horrible position and yet is still so sweet and sensitive towards other people. I loved his personality and how he didn't push things when the situation didn't call for it. While I feel it was a bit insta-lovey, in this case I found it was completely acceptable. Though, I AM left with questions about his life before he showed up in Cali. He said he'd been in love before, but not the same way it was with Maddy. GIMME MORE! Maybe we will get a novella of his life before? ;D

 

 QUALITY OF LIFE

    Yes, this is an odd category. Yes, it is something that people tend to overlook. Let's talk about it. You go about your daily schedule and whether that involves school,work, or other activities, there is normally at least some amount of choice in your day. And do you know what happens when we choose? We are happy. Not only happy, but living. 

 

   This book brought up something so important that I can't NOT mention it. To live and to be happy are not the same. You can be happy but that doesn't mean that inside you are content with everything in your life. Never settle for anything less than your dreams. Again, Nicola Yoon brings up valuable life lessons. 

 

QUOTES

~Please keep in mind that this is an ARC and that these quotes may be changed in the final edition~

   This book had so many wonderful quotes that I have to share my favorites. 

 

   ** "You can find the meaning of life in a book."

   

   ** "I am not lonely, Mom." I snap. "I am alone. Those are different things.""

 

   ** "Sometimes I reread my favorite books from back to front. I start with the last chapter and read backward until I get to the beginning. When you read this way, characters go from hope to despair, from self-knowledge to doubt. In love stories, couples start out as lovers and end strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite books come back to life."

 

   ** "Sometimes you fall off prematurely. Sometimes you get so damaged by other pieces of luggage falling on your head that you don't really function anymore. Sometimes you get lost or forgotten and go around forever and ever."

 

 

    

 

 

**If you have heard hype surrounding this book and are wary of purchasing it, I would recommend that you do. This book has ups and downs but is simply beautiful and makes you appreciate the little things. This comes out on September 1st. Get your own copy, you won't regret it!**
