Book Review: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Everything’s a risk. Not doing anything is a risk. It’s up to you

This was the first book I read in 2017. It took me only a couple of hours to finish it. I am not sure if I liked it.

Book Review: Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon

Live life in a bubble?
Or risk everything for love?

Maddy is allergic to the world.
She hasn’t left her house in seventeen years.

Olly is the boy next door.
He’s determined to find a way to reach her.

I gave Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon four out of five stars. But that was initially. Now I am thinking more like three out of four stars. Story is centered around this romance, that is not meant to be. And I hate romances!

The story has its funny moments and I like the way it has been written with the IM messages, emails and other things in there. I enjoyed that a lot, which kept me probably from noticing I got annoyed with the romance. Of course it is a romance and so you can not get past the two lovebirds.

The end did not really come as a surprise, because Madeline did not get sick after the first time she goes out of the house. And then also the fact that she got diagnosed shortly after the death of her father and brother, it started to bug me. But it did not take away from the fun.

I want to let you know that I do not think this is a bad novel! I think if you like romances, this is a great book. But it is just not for me. I do not like romances and fall into it each time again. But on the other hand Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon is a great story, just not for me!

Let me know what you thought of this book( and/or movie)!
