A million futures lie before us. Which one will come true? Praise for Everything, Everything[A] fresh, moving debut. Entertainment WeeklyGorgeous and lyrical.

I read this when our first came out. I liked but I didn't love it. Couldn't understand why all the hype. Oh well, you can't live every book.

A day in two lives, two lives in one day. This was delightful. It covered science, poetry and love.

GREAT, phenomenal book for all ages! The depth of Yoon for all of her characters and subjects is a marvel.
My only beef is that I was so excited to find out it was a movie but then I could not watch sweet, normal sized 17 year old Daniel be played by a tall, manly, broad and macho 26 year old! So, READ this--do not watch the movie!

I was captivated by this book and really wanted to see how things turned out in the end for these young loves. This was a cute love story that took place over a day. I loved how it highlighted how one persons decisions could impact other people lives without them even knowing it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nothing better on a rainy/snowy day than spending quality time at my local library. 💕📚On the downside, I went in to pick up my hold of the tagged book on audio hoping to start listening to it during school pickup - the CD is damaged and won‘t play. ☹️😠

How did you choose this book: Because I loved “Everything,everything“ by Nicola Yoon, I decided to check out her other books (this is one of them).

Write a brief summary of the novel; who was the protagonist; what was his/her problem and how was the problem resolved?

Watched this YA movie adaptation on the plane this week! It was definitely cute and pretty similar to the book, but I definitely didn't like it as much as the book. Natasha wasn't as likeable on the screen, but still glad I saw it.
I also watched Booksmart which was hilarious and so much fun!

This book was riveting, and grabs your attention. It includes details that will blow your mind, and it creates vivid images in you mind of how the life of the 17 year-olds is and what kind of future this path they took leads them to. It is absolutely amazing, and really shows life from many perspectives, including minor characters and histories of things mentioned in the book. It dives into great detail of Daniel and Natasha's lives and impacts.

As much as we wanted to go on a hike and see some wild ponies today, none of us felt like being in the car for 5 hrs going to/from.

Lounging and reading won out, with a bike ride later this morning! I‘m hoping she‘ll finish up this book soon so we can watch the movie together this weekend.

Finished this one last night and really enjoyed it. It was a quick, easy read but also heartfelt. I really enjoyed the way the story was told, alternating between Daniel and Natasha‘s POVs with some of the side characters thrown into the mix with their POVs and little stories. The other two books are TBR for this weekend as book swaps. #bookcrossing #bookswaps #booktrades #weekendtbr

Such a wonderful read. I absolutely love the writing style, the little chapter excerpts about history and side stories and that there's a movie! I already completely agree with the casting choices. Such a heart warming, logic versus whimsy story.

"There‘s a Japanese phrase that I like: koi no yokan. It doesn‘t mean love at first sight. It‘s closer to love at second sight. It‘s the feeling when you meet someone that you‘re going to fall in love with them. Maybe you don‘t love them right away, but it‘s inevitable that you will."

Moony Oh wow you're good! I also don't lost weight. Next week the fat will melt! 😎 5mo
julesG Wow! Admirable stats! 5mo
julesG @Moony It's not fat, it's new muscles. Muscle tissue weighs more than fat. My scales have shown the same weight for 3 weeks, but my trousers are loose, my shirts look better on me - my personal point of reference when I look into the mirror: my collarbones are more visible than 10 weeks ago. Also, I know I've gained strength and balance. 5mo
See All 16 Comments
Moony @julesG yes that is true and congratulation! What did you do for it? I don't know if only walking more let my muscles get bigger. 😆 5mo
julesG @Moony Light strength training and a bit of yoga, Pilates, cardio. Check darebee.com they have a lot of great training plans. 5mo
britt_brooke Nicely done! That you didn‘t lose weight doesn‘t mean things didn‘t shift around. 😉 Keep it up. You‘re doing great!! 5mo
wanderinglynn Great first week! 🙌🏻 If I might, I‘d recommend not having weight loss as a goal. There‘s a lot of factors that go into that number on the scale & the scale number going down does not automatically = healthy. I know from my personal experience that when I focused on the scale, I eventually got frustrated & gave up. Focusing on healthy habits is a better strategy. Just a suggestion to think about. 💜 5mo
imabusybee @julesG so true 💜 5mo
imabusybee @britt_brooke thats true Thanks for the reminder 💜🙌🏼 5mo
imabusybee @wanderinglynn you might be right I did have a personal goal maybe I'll leave it behind and just focus on getting heathly💜 5mo
imabusybee @julesG Thanks 💜😊 5mo
Moony @julesG wow cool thank you :) 5mo
wanderinglynn I think that‘s a good plan. Put the scale aside for now and then check at the end of the challenge. I bet you‘ll be amazed how far you go. 👍🏻👍🏻 5mo
LibrarianJen I gained 5 pounds this week. If you are drinking extra water it could be water weight. When you are building muscles they retain water. Try concentrating more on how you feel than what the scale says. 5mo
imabusybee @LibrarianJen another thing thats true I do feel goood and thats what I want. 💜 5mo

Great commuter book. I am falling in love with every page. It‘s is not serious read, but it‘s heart felt and full of teenage angst. Beautiful blending of worlds and even random small characters.

Be prepared to feel ALL the feels when you read this book. There were so many times where I laughed, I cried, I was angry. Any emotion you can think of I felt in this story. The way Nicola Yoon crafts her writing is so sharp and creative. She really knows how to suck you into a story and make you want to keep on reading! Even if you are not a fan of YA or romance, you WILL fall in love with this book!

Even though I‘m sort of taking a break from YA, I‘ve had this on my Kindle for a while and it helps me almost finish #LitsyAtoZ! This is my #Y book. I did like this sweet romance, though a touch pretentious it still is a well written smart #YA. It is #romantsy but no graphic sex scenes.
