Totally made me want to read more of this authors books!
Good Points
I received Every Day by David Levithan as a winning from Random Buzzers. This is an honest review.

Wow Every Day is so not what I was expecting, but in a totally good way. A switches bodies every day, and that means exactly what I said he or she is never in the same body for twice ever and it’s a little tough but this is the only life A has ever known so it’s normal and he or she is okay with it until Rhiannon comes along.

I’m not really sure how to describe A because it was not made known in the book if A was a boy or a girl but I kind of just went with he. I’m not sure why but from the very beginning that was my first instinct and I went with it. Either way I enjoyed A’s character, no matter what happened he was always hooked on Rhiannon from the day he met her he knew she was the one. He always wanted what was best for her even if it hurt him or the body he was in, and that I thought was pretty amazing.

My favorite character though was Rhiannon, and the reason being is because I saw a little bit of myself in her. The things that were going on in her love life I could relate. I could also relate with her feelings most of the time, which is what totally drew me into her character.

Can we just talk about switching bodies every day for a second? I cannot even imagine that happening. I would so not be able to handle it the pain of not knowing who I really was not having real parents or real friends would kill me and I’d probably just become this depressed person. I have no clue how A dealt with it! (as if he’s a real person!)

I’m not sure if this book is meant to be a standalone because by the ending I was very confused. Out of the whole book the ending is the one thing that I was totally not happy with! It’s crazy how things just abruptly ended and left me with my jaw hanging open. Sometimes that factor can be good but In this case I’m not too happy with it. (part of me thinks that’s because of my mood at the time of reading the ending but who knows)

Overall the book gets a 4 out of 5 stars because of the whole ending thing but If I had the chance to turn around and pick another book I wouldn’t because I really did end up enjoying this one quite a lot.

Each day is a new body for A. Each day A is someplace new, waiting to be someone new. A has made guidelines so as not disrupt the body's life too much. Then A meets Rhiannon. A woke up in her boyfriend's body and ended up spending one wonderful day with her. The next day A can't stop thinking about her though—same with the next day and the next. How can a relationship work though when you never know who or where one of the people might wake up. Maybe someone has answers for A, but they not be the answers A wants.

In case you though he might, David Levithan does not disappoint with this fantastic new novel. I was drawn in from the first line—the first page. The idea of waking up every day in a different body is just an amazing thing to think about. I can't even imagine the outlook on life that A has. Of course I got to see a small glimpse into his psyche, but it's nowhere near enough. A was a good person through and through though. That's one thing that inhabiting multiple bodies can do. You have been every race and gender and sexual orientation, so you are pretty much without prejudice. Rhiannon on the other hand, was not a great person.

Rhiannon wasn't a terrible person, she was just honestly prejudice. I don't think there's any way that she loved A nearly half as much as A loved her. If she loved him, it wouldn't matter what body he was in, she would just want to be with him. I realize that this is an impossible situation. It would take a lot of understanding, and I can see the issues with it. Love is love though. I just think it would be hard to love someone you can't be with. I just didn't like that she seemed put out by him being in a girl's body or an unattractive body. I really wished she could have just always seen into A.

This is a great novel about love knowing no bounds, but knowing plenty of struggle. I wish everyone could have the same outlook on love as A, but I think that's what everyone would like. I think people are all people and should be treated the same...respectfully. If you are a fan of David then I'm sure you already grabbed this, if not make sure you do. If you aren't a fan yet you should check this one out. It was beautifully written and an interesting concept with a great lead character.

First Line:
"I wake up."

Favorite Lines:
"He's a hardcore design geek, and his room is an orchard of Apple products."

"I wanted love to conquer all. But love can't conquer anything. It can't do anything on its own. It relies on us to do the conquering on its behalf."

This book was my first David Levithan book, and I was not disappointed! David Levithan is a great author, and he was able to make this slightly weird idea and love story become an amazing novel.

A is a different person every day, and it's been like this for A's entire life. When I first heard about this I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. I ended up really enjoying it. The great thing about this book is that A isn't a girl or a boy, A is just A. A loves people based on who they are and she struggles loving someone who isn't as open to that idea. I wasn't a huge fan of the love story, but I did love seeing A grow and seeing A decide to just live.

The book was really enjoyable.
