THIS WEEK’S BOOK:

Friday Reads: Someday by David LevithanTitle: Someday
Author: David Levithan
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: October 2, 2018

Summary (from Goodreads):

Every day a new body. Every day a new life. Every day a new choice.

For as long as A can remember, life has meant waking up in a different person's body every day, forced to live as that person until the day ended. A always thought there wasn't anyone else who had a life like this.

But A was wrong. There are others.

A has already been wrestling with powerful feelings of love and loneliness. Now comes an understanding of the extremes that love and loneliness can lead to -- and what it's like to discover that you are not alone in the world.

In Someday, David Levithan takes readers further into the lives of A, Rhiannon, Nathan, and the person they may think they know as Reverend Poole, exploring more deeply the questions at the core of Every Day and Another Day What is a soul? And what makes us human?

BOOK BEGINNING

Every time the doorbell rings, I think it might be A. Every time someone looks at me for a beat too long. Every time a message arrives in my inbox. Every time the phone displays a number I don’t know. For a second or two, I fool myself into believing.

FRIDAY 56

There’s no way this is an accident. There’s no way this wasn’t intended. I scroll down and see, in the comments section, another song. Not our song. But still- irrefutable.

Thoughts

I am only a couple of chapters into the book, but it has already pulled me right back into the story. It’s interesting how this instalment in the series is told in multiple perspectives. I am looking forward to learning what Levithan has in store for A and Rhiannon.

    I don’t know why I can’t get into this series of books. I just can’t. I am glad that you have enjoyed them, though!

    It’s great to hear that you’re enjoying this one! I haven’t read any of the books in this series yet, but the premise of Every Day intrigues me SO MUCH! Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this one, love! <3

    I haven’t read any of those yet but I’ve heard wonderful things about the author so I’m really looking forward to trying something of his 🙂
    (Ok, I lie! I just checked and I’ve actually read The Twelve Days of Dash and Lily and a short story from a Christmas anthology last year xD None of them were my favourites but they were definitely enjoyable ^^)
    I hope you love this book until the very end!

    This Groundhog Day-concept reminds me of The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle that I just finished! I’ve come across this book from another blogger(I forgot who) and it sounds intriguing! Another one for the TBR~
