Loved this story so much! Very sad the mom was so hung up on her loss that she hid her daughter away for so long. That part of the story kinda made me mad but otherwise loved it

#3: I loved this book!! This book is about a young girl named Madeline Whittier who has a disease known as SCID or severe combined immunodeficiency which means she could be deathly allergic to anything and she can‘t touch anything that hasn‘t been properly sanitized and she lives in Los Angeles with her mother. If you like books that are romantic and full of surprises, you‘ll like this one. The genre of this book is romance + young adult fiction.

MissYaremcio Great review Claudia. This is late, however I will mark it.... 1w

“Some mornings he sleeps until noon. Others,he's gone from his room before I wake up and begin surveillance.“(Page 25)

I don't know how I feel about this post because she is finding something in interest and something to do in her boring life, but what she is doing is creepy and unsettling I was the guy I would be freaked out.

Her life seems so plain so far, I feel sad for her.

The book is about a forbidden love affair between Maddy and Ollie. The distance between there love is a thin wall of plastic, but love can find a way even if it means risking her life to spend the ‘rest‘ of her life together.

Everything, Everything is a beautiful and well-written book.❤ If you love Romance and books that are full of Drama then Everything Everything is a book for you. The book is about an interracial teen girl. Who is sadly “sick“. She is sick to the point she can't leave the home at all for anything.😷 Maddy meets a boy named Olly. These two beautiful characters instantly begin an adventurous, sentimental, and beautiful love story.

I watched this movie yesterday and I loved it. Therefore, I'll have to move the book higher on my TBR. For those that have read it, do you think the book is better?

Liatrek I really liked both but there was more depth in the book I think. 2mo
Peddler410 I haven‘t seen the movie yet, but there has yet to come a movie I liked better than the book. That said, I try to watch book movies as their own thing. I understand why movie people need to do movie things. But sometimes movie people make changes I cannot support — My Sister‘s Keeper movie people, I‘m looking at you. (edited) 2mo

It was a romance. Deals with som mature content. It deals with a young girl who just turned 18, and she is allergic to everything and has to stay inside all the time. One day she meets a boy and decides to run off. Read to see what happens next.

This book didn‘t live up to the hype and expectations for me, but I liked it. I thought it was a little predictable, but I enjoyed the literary references throughout. The audiobook is definitely worth a listen. Bahni Turpin is one of my favorite narrators! #audiobook #audible

MxrleyMxe I didn‘t find it predictable honestly, I thought it was going to end very different, this book isn‘t one I got emotionally attached to though 3mo
jenniferajanes @Marleyparkinson I have a child with an immune deficiency, and I have known people with SCID. I think that‘s why I had some suspicions and an idea of where it was going. I wasn‘t emotionally attached either. It was really a sad story to me. 3mo
MxrleyMxe @jenniferajanes oh that makes sense, as this was my first time hearing about SCID 3mo
jenniferajanes @Marleyparkinson Yes, SCID is very rare (even more rare than the immune deficiency that my daughter and I have). Not many people have heard of it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about the book! 📚❤️ 3mo

Sometimes the ending is the beginning. Loss, Love, and Fear of the Unknown. Each choice shapes our space and the people in our path. Plenty of quotes and things to chew on. Young and old will appreciate this read...it will change your heart. What would you do if you suddenly realized you could live your dreams...that you could do or be everything?

I love me some angsty realistic YA. This reminded me of everything I love about the genre, with some developments I didn't see coming and plenty of romance.

It may be an unpopular opinion but I sympathise with Madeline's mum. I can understand the reason behind all her actions. Some of those decision are horrible, but she is still a mommy trying to protected her baby (or thinking that she is).

quote
Riis_Books

“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 as strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite characters come back to life.”

quote
Riis_Books

Just because you can‘t experience everything doesn‘t mean you shouldn‘t experience anything.

Everything, Everything is a risk and awesome. A quick and easy read.
It isn't all about a very ill teenager girl.The characters are well written and reliable. Some may judge that the end is predictable but still it is enjoyable and the best it could have happened. I also loved the writing style of the book. All Maddy's note - full of pictures, emails and her diagrams - are incorporated through all the book. It was awesome.

This is not a YA book I‘d recommend, especially to people who don‘t read YA often. It‘s another “love conquers all” book and those kinda make me feel 🤢.

Pros:
Nicola‘s writing is beautiful.
Her husband‘s illustrations are gorgeous.
It‘s very readable.

Cons:
The love story plays out like every other YA romance I‘ve read.
Continued in comments: MAJOR SPOILERS!!

Megabooks How did this girl not know she wasn‘t sick? How did she never look it up on the internet? How did she never go looking for other people with her condition online? Seriously. That‘s a lot more blind obedience to her mom than even I had as a teen, and I was a really good kid. 6mo
Caterina I hated this book. It's ableist in a really harmful way that I couldn't get past. 6mo
Caterina The implied message is "don't appropriately care for your health, LIVE! Take risks or life isn't worth it" and the ending felt like a cheap cop-out because how could someone who ACTUALLY had a chronic illness have a happily ever after?? As a person with chronic illness I can't stand this kind of ableist messaging, intentional or not, and am glad this book wasn't around when I was a chronically ill 17 year old. 6mo

Megabooks @Caterina That is true. I hadn‘t thought about it that way. I panned it the first time I read it, but I can‘t deny that Yoon is a talented writer. I just wish she had picked a better plot. 6mo
Megabooks @Caterina Re spoiler: Yes, I see your. I have had a number of chronic illnesses since 17 but had a healthy childhood. I hate how men that I‘ve dated either once they find out I‘m ill say, “see ya” or they think I‘m a princess in need of rescuing. I am neither broken nor in need of fixing, I am human. But that‘s just me. I guess that‘s part of why I hate this book. 6mo
Caterina I also enjoyed Yoon's writing. Have you read her second book? It was better than this one. Also yesss I have had some unpleasant attempts at dating men. 😂😪 One didn't want me to get my health to a better place because I guess he felt like it changed the power dynamic and intimidated him. 🤷 6mo
Megabooks @Caterina I have read it, and I do think it‘s better. One guy told me on a date that he wanted, “a harem of damaged women.” What. The. Fuck!!! I almost jumped out of the car. That is still surreal, and it was about 20 years ago!! 6mo
Caterina 😱😱😱 That is so alarming, and even worse to hear when you're in the car with him!! F the patriarchy that creates such horrors, that is messed up! 6mo

I watched the movie before I read the book, yet Everything Everything was beautifully written. Examining the dynamics between Madeline and her mother made me think of Munchausen‘s Syndrome. It was amazing to read as Madeline and Olly‘s relationship changed from strangers to being in love. What would you do for love if you could be affected by the outside world. I was happy that Madeline separated from her mother and explored all she missed.

Fascinating concept, and engrossing. Super easy to read. I loved the relationships between Olly/Maddy, and Maddy/Carla. Also brings awareness to the reality of some people‘s lives.

UNTIL ALL OF THAT CHANGED.

A very fast read, "Everything, Everything" is what I consider to be a typical YA love story. Sick girl falls for boy next door and with parental problems on top of her illness, how can this relationship ever work? Does love conquer all?

While I did enjoy the random illustrations and handwritten notes, I did struggle a bit with the predictability and (un)realistic factors.

“Everything, Everything" is okay for a cute read, but not my favorite.

Karkar I had a hard time with this too. Letting go of the fact they would have never been able to do the things they did, it was hard for me. 7mo
Megabooks I thought it was a silly premise. The author didn‘t seem to know much about the medical condition she was writing about, or she wrote a very gullible MC. 7mo
KristenDuck @Megabooks I kind of knew what was coming the whole time because of this. Like I knew where we were heading. 7mo
OnlyYoo The amount of texts or emails they sent made up about half of the book... 7mo

1. I work at a library, so pretty much all of my books are discovered there. ?
2. Love a good self-help book! Whenever I read one or buy organizing products at IKEA, I am completely convinced that I‘ll change my life.
3. If you name it, I‘ve probably read it. I‘ve taken Brenè Brown‘s words to heart.
4. After my son was stillborn, I only read books about grief for over a year. It was a rough time.

Firstly, don't listen to the audiobook - the short chapters, emails, etc don't really work well.
I think I liked the writing, but didn't like the story. Surprisingly, I didn't see the twist coming. I hoped that that was going to make it so much better, but the consequences just weren't there.
I've rated it a pick, but it's really close to a so-so for me.

This was a great book. I would recommend it to anyone. It‘s about a girl who lost her dad and brother to a car accident and is allergic to everything, and one day a boy moves in next door and they found each other‘s emails and started talking. One day they want to meet, so her “nanny” lets them go in a room but they have to stay 5 feet apart. But like each, she and the boy sneaks out. She isn‘t allergic to anything. Read it to find out!!!

MrsBabki @Aurora_Marie I loved that book, too! Put Five Feet Apart on hold - try to read the book before you take in the 🎥! 9mo

blurb
BookwormBestfriend

The moment I finished reading, I had this content feeling my heart. The book taught me that no matter what happens you can leave it behind you. Even though Madeline did not forgive her mother in the end, she was happy that she is at least free now. She can now do whatever she wants to do. And she had one person that she knew would not leave her side because Olly did not want to leave when he knew she has SCID and probably no future with him.
