It's been nearly two weeks since I finished reading Every Day, and I'm only just now writing my review. Normally, I write my reviews within hours, or at most 2-3 days after finishing a book, as my sieve-like memory kicks in pretty quickly. But it's taken me almost two weeks to think about how to review Every Day, and I'm still thinking about the book and how it made me feel.

Talking about A is difficult, because A doesn't have a gender, or a body. I wouldn't define A as a spirit, or a soul, but as a personality. A sweet, kind personality who does their best in a situation that's completely unimaginable - waking up in a different body every single day from birth. A respects each inhabited body by only accessing the parts of their memories and brains that allow A to function through a day as that person, to know who their parents and friends are, where to go and how to behave in a way that minimises the chances of anyone realising something is wrong.

In the beginning I didn't really 'get' why A was so attracted to Rhiannon, but as the story continued I began to really understand what was happening - after spending a lifetime with no particular attachment to anyone, A experiences an instant attraction, and not having had that experience before, does what most people do - becomes slightly obsessed with the person they have sparked with. And as the story progressed, I grew to like Rhiannon, and honestly felt quite sad for her.

Interesting and different but not much of a love story more of an examination of identity.

I'd been meaning to read this book for a while, intrigued by the concept of A, a narrator who wakes up in a different body each day and lives their hosts' life for that day. They have no body to call their own, and therefore no sense of their sex, gender, sexuality or race. It was a very original idea and was mostly very well executed. This "entity's" voice radiated out of the page, striking a good balance between having a consistent personality and being influenced by each body their found themselves in.

There were really three things going on here. One was a sort of paranormal story, where you just enjoyed and wondered at the strangeness of A's life. I loved reading about their experiences. I'd have liked to see more explanation, more mind-bending weirdness and more attempts to bend the rules, but fundamentally, that wasn't what the author was going for.

The second aspect was a very strange love story. One day, A is in the body of a rather unpleasant boy and falls in love with his girlfriend. A then keeps trying to met her in different guises, before telling her the truth, after which they try to make their very unconventional relationship work. The concept of the romance was intriguing, but the actual relationship just didn't quite grab me. The first chapter, where the two of them meet, was super cheesy and one of the worst examples of "insta-love" I've every come across. I often don't mind that, but it jarred me here. Why this girl? There just didn't seem to be anything special about her - if anything, she seemed very ground down and unambitious.

Every Day offers such an interesting concept that I instantly found myself drawn to. Because A has no body, A has no gender, no sexuality, no race. Immediately that opened up a whole host of personalities for David Levithan to explore, and he did so brilliantly. You’ll find yourself swept into the lives of rich people, poor people, drug addicts, mentally ill people and many others. Some are eye-opening, some are heartbreaking and some are lots of fun.

Don’t expect to be completely convinced by Every Day’s love story. It’s at the centre of the novel, but it doesn’t feel wholly genuine. After all, it doesn’t take long to convince Rhiannon that A’s story is legit, and considering the circumstances I felt like it was a bit sudden and rushed.

But that doesn’t matter when you look at the bigger picture, because Every Day is a stunning novel that I know thousands of people have already fallen in love with, and thousands more will do so for years to come. It’s clever and captivating and I urge you to read it.

First of all I love the whole idea this is based on. You may think waking up every day in a different body is quite simple to understand, but it’s so much more complicated than that. A can be a different gender each day, and lead an entirely different life, and this has been A’s way of life throughout the entirety of A’s existence. A is a gender-less, body-less being who doesn’t confine itself to the normal confines of society. You could describe A as pansexual, and yet since A is neither sex you can’t. This offers so many different philosophical questions which makes everything much deeper and more complicated.

Another issue A raised in that if A was to die nobody would miss A since A has never had a constant life, body, or anything like that, so A wouldn’t be missed. This reminds me of a quote, which I think is from Doctor Who, but it’s still good and I think very true: ‘We are all stories in the end.’ This is one of my favourite quotes as in the end we will be storiesthat people tell to others, so in some way we do live on. But A doesn’t have that ability, as A is everyone and no one. A’s story will probably never be truly told, and that’s sad.

Other than the bloody amazing plot, there is romance, and I have to say I liked it a lot. It isn’t the sort of romance where nothing matters other than the love they have for one and other. There are so many issues and underlying factors that it isn’t what you can call ‘smooth running’. Rhiannon does struggle with both the gender side of things, and the entire situation overall – which is understandable considering the circumstances. Again, there are so many factors to be considered than I think we all realise.

If you are going to read this book, which I recommend you do, the ending isn’t definitive, you’re heart might ache from time to time, and you will feel for A a lot, but it is all worth it. Overall this was a very good read.
