Madeline Whittier is allergic to the outside world. So allergic, in fact, that she has never left the house in all of her seventeen years. But when Olly moves in next door, and wants to talk to Maddie, tiny holes start to appear in the protective bubble her mother has built around her. Olly writes his IM address on a piece of paper, shows it at her window, and suddenly, a door opens. But does Maddie dare to step outside her comfort zone?
Everything, Everything is about the thrill and heartbreak that happens when we break out of our shell to do crazy, sometimes death-defying things for love.
It has been a little over a month since I finished reading this book so my review’s probably going to be short and a little all over the place as I try to remember everything I thought while reading it.
This was the first book I have read by Nicola Yoon and after finishing this one I really want to read more by this author.
The romance between Olly and Maddie could and is considered insta-love but that didn’t really bother. I am ok with insta-love so long as it’s done well and in this case to me it was.
I actually really adored the romance between Maddie and Olly. I thought they were really cute together. I loved how open and accepting of Maddie that Olly was. Most people wouldn’t have been as accepting and persistent as Olly was.
When you are reading this you should expect to go on an emotional roller coaster. There were some laugh out loud moments and there were some moments that just really piss you off plus everything in between.
The way this book was written really made it a fun quick read. I’ve never read anything like it before. I mean you get all kinds of formats from emails and text messages between Olly and Maddie to diary entries and drawings. It really was a unique read.
I will say that I never saw that twist coming. I never even considered that a possibility until I read it and was like no really why would you do that?
The reason I took off a star was because there just wasn’t that wow factor for me and it left me wanting more.
Have you read this book? Do you want to read it? What are your thoughts on this book? Have you seen the movie yet? I haven’t but I really want to now that I have finished the book.
