Childhood trauma followed by bliss, adolescent growing pains coupled with pleasures, and young adult burdens preceding progressions. All steered him towards individuality. Eventually HE would rise every morning expecting experiences; be they major or mundane, to shape an ever evolving persona.

Every Day was one of my favorite reads of the year. I simply can't wait for this. This was definitely the most disappointing read of the year so far for me. I don't actually know why this book was even written. Well, I do know: But it all just felt so unnecessary. I don't feel like I learned anything new while reading. I know it's supposed to be the same story told from a different perspective, but that was the problem: Rhiannon is probably the most dull POV I've ever read from.
And it's so sad, because I feel like her story did have some potential. This book could've been a perfect place to explore issues surrounding her family and her life at home, but it just didn't. It only touched these topics slightly and then concentrated on her problems with her boyfriend, Justin, which got so repetitive after a while. Even if you loved Every Day as much as I did, I cannot recommend this book at all. You're better off just re-reading Every Day! View all 11 comments.
Jun 29, Kelly and the Book Boar rated it it was ok Shelves: Find all of my reviews at: That being said, I kinda had a bad feeling upon starting this book. Every Day earned points because I used to be nicer a couple of years ago for being original and doing a great job of getting the message across that love is love.
Mostly due to my reaction to Rhiannon. While she did have a few redeeming qualities: Or maybe because I assume girl when I hear boyfriend. Rhiannon was about as shallow as they get. When A appeared as a hotty she was all in, but when he showed up as less than a 10 all of a sudden she had mixed emotions. Not that A was any better. Yes, what is on the inside is what matters, but no one should force themselves into a sexual situation that makes them feel uncomfortable — and pretending to be a lesbian would definitely be one of those situations.
Same goes for Rhiannon. Here is a girl who has grown up in a not-so-healthy environment and has coped by becoming a Stage 5 Clinger to an emotionally unavailable boy. Rather than going into any details about what made her who she was, instead we got this. In fact, the character I was most intrigued by this time around ended up being the a-hole boyfriend. And I want it. I want it so badly. I want the touch of his lips on mine. I want the way my heart is pounding. I want this nest, my body and his body. View all 15 comments. Jun 19, Will M. Contemporary YA is not my genre, but I honestly enjoyed this novel.
It was a very light read. A short break from all the fantasy and Historical Fiction novels. I'm never going to consider contemporary YA as my favorite genre, but I'm willing to read it from time to time.
There are some life lessons you can learn from the genre. I read Every Day out of nowhere years ago. I was reading a lot of YA books then, but if you give me Every Day right now, I'd still give it a go.
The synopsis is still pret Contemporary YA is not my genre, but I honestly enjoyed this novel. The synopsis is still pretty great, and the execution was still good for me. I liked the story, ending, and characters. Not much complaints when it comes to the first novel. It's a bit of a different story for the second novel though.
Second novel being a different point of view. What I hated the most would be the whole idea of the novel. Yeah it sounds bad now, but continue reading to know why I rated this as such. I hated the fact that the author wanted readers of Every Day to know Rhiannon's point of view.
She is definitely a character I felt a lot for. Plain, simple, pretty boring YA. There better be a third book. Apr 09, Maddy G. Rhiannon was hesitating, and didn't really see their story moving forward. Rhiannon, however, is trying to figure out where she is on the spectrum. When I was little, I was always worried I'd fall in love with someone ugly.
In the first novel, it seemed like he gave Rhiannon closure. She can be happy, in the future at least. What I read in this novel was a girl's point of view when it comes to relationship. Not necessarily all types, but at least of one. Those who are fond of the genre would enjoy this a lot for sure.
It wasn't a terrible read though, but it was a bit tedious to read a lot about what she wanted. All the ramblings got a bit tiring after a while. What he did though was hint us that Rhiannon would most probably look for A in the future. It could be an assumption of mine, but I was sliding for the next page after the last sentence of the novel.
I didn't know it was the last page. I even thought my iPad was lagging. Not the best ending for me, are Contemp YA normally like this? I liked the first novel way better, because of the whole premise. To have no permanent life, friends, family, etc. It's scary in a way. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. For those who have read the first novel, don't expect the same mystery.
This is straight up contemporary. I'm sure that most people would rate this higher, but a 3. The novel was not that bad, not bad at all.

Retellings are so hard to get right, but when you combine a retelling from a borderline unlikeable character and you don't add anything new to the table, things go downhill VERY quickly.
It is completely dependent on Every Day for context and plot. In fact, if you are expecting any sort of story structure, look elsewhere. First of all, her relationship with Justin was painful to read. It is so clearly an emotionally abusive relationship that I wanted to shake Rhiannon. Justin is an epic douche, and I simply wanted to punch him in the nads the entire time. But what was most difficult to read were the details about Rhiannon herself. She is just less More shallow, more insecure, less unique. It was disappointing, if I'm being honest. Despite knowing some more unsavory things about Rhiannon from this book, I would still have said that this story had merit except for the fact that this retelling brings very little extra to the table.
The purpose of a companion piece is to shed new light and bring new information to the original book. Instead, I think this book and this author tried to milk an already successful book for more than it could give ahem, Grey. Another Day is literally like re-reading a book you loved, but told in the perspective of the worst character with the most boring plot. Okay, maybe that's a bit too harsh, but its hard not to be annoyed when I read such a pointless novel.
As a novella this would have been a cute addition, but as a full novel simply retold from an unlikable character? I suppose I should have suspected something when the forward is a long rambling defense on the point of the novel, but I loved Every Day so much t Another Day is literally like re-reading a book you loved, but told in the perspective of the worst character with the most boring plot. This is not a terrible book IF you haven't read Every Day. The writing is still really good and in general it's a decent read, however if you have read Every Day I feel like this book will just end up feeling tedious.
While you don't need to read Every Day to read this, I don't really see the point in recommending it, since the original is by far the better novel. Unless you're a hardcore fan, save your money. If we are not going to get a true sequel, could we at least get a companion told from the Pastor's perspective.
I think that would have been a much better alternative than having Rhiannon as a main character. Buy, Borrow or Bin Verdict: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. View all 10 comments.
Oct 24, Caye marked it as to-read Shelves: Stop rating books that aren't even released! So it's really pushing through.. I'm not sure what to feel. I guess I'll know when I have the real thing in my hands. Sep 06, Marla Mei rated it it was ok Shelves: I desperately wanted to like this. But if the POV's infuriating as hell and all you want to do is get out of the character's head, you get out. Why torture yourself more, right?

Talvez eu tenha aproveitado mais por causa da fase em que estou na vida? O que mais me impactou em Outro Dia foi a carga emocional. O que o Levithan quis dizer com aquilo?
Mas, de qualquer forma, chorei? Jun 10, Elizabeth Sagan rated it it was ok. Plain, simple, pretty boring YA. Aug 21, Pinky rated it liked it. We all want everything to be okay. We don't even wish so much for fantastic or marvelous or outstanding. We will happily settle for okay, because most of the time, okay is enough.
I honestly don't know how I feel about this book, I'm so confused. It was a good book, but it wasn't something that I loved. It was interesting but I felt like it was slow-paced at times and I had a hard time finishing it. And I felt like I kept waiting for the perfect moment to read this book because for some reason, I felt like I was going to love it. The joy is in remembering; the pain is in knowing it was yesterday. A doesn't know why this is happening but he knows that this is his life and he can't do anything about it.
All A has to do is act normal and try not to mess up the life of the person's body that he is in. But after waking up in Justin's body and meeting Rhiannon, he broke all of his rules. He acted different and couldn't stop thinking about Rhiannon. Another Day is Rhiannon's point of view of this story and you get to see more of Rhiannon's life. Every answer leads to more questions. The only way to survive is to let some of them go. Justin was someone that I hated and I really hope I don't meet someone like him.
Rhiannon was confused and I don't blame her but she makes me so frustrated at times. Preston is nice and I liked him but we didn't get to read much about him. Steve is okay and Stephanie was okay too. Rebecca was probably my favorite character because of how supportive she was. She was such a good friend she she knew what was right and wrong. Instead, I feel painfully visible, and entirely ignored. Sometimes I felt like Rhiannon was super selfish and it bothered me. A was someone who never had family and family. I can't imagine a life life A's, it would be horrible. It made me feel so thankful for the life I have.
It is interesting to hear Rhiannon's thoughts about everything she goes through. If you haven't read Every Day, I highly recommend you read it! It's another to feel someone else fall in love with you, and to feel a responsibility toward that love. View all 7 comments. Jun 08, Elyse Walters rated it it was amazing Shelves: I want it to be all things insidewho you are, what you believe. But what if the things on the outside are just as important?
When I was little, I was always worried I'd fall in love with someone ugly. Then I figured that love would make anyone beautiful to me, if I love them enough. I want to believe that. I want to believe that you can love someone "I'm just wondering why people stay together," I say. I want to believe that you can love someone so strongly that none of it will matter.
But what if it does? Nobody here doesn't know what form his or her love will take. And instead of feeling superior to them--instead of feeling smug because I have what they don't have--I find myself envying them. These two love each other. Both wish for stability Is 'any' love really considered 'stable'?
Is that even the right question to ask? Rhiannon especially grapples with this question. Having read 'Every Day', maybe my favorite Teen book 'ever' , which first examined questions About what it might be like to wake up in a different body each day These same issues get explored looking deeper into problem resolutions.
These two books together make a perfect set of 'bookends'. A few times - I thought about reading a book in Hebrew. We read a book from right to left in Hebrew Seems backwards to most Yes perfectly normal for Israeli's. If this was a backward book.. I absolutely loved it.
The entire concept of both these two books is fascinating- charming- and wise! Thank you to Knopf publishing company, Netgalley, and David Levithan. I'll rush to the head of the line if there is "An Additional Day"! Aug 05, Katie Kitkatscanread rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this book a lot more than I did with the first. I feel like David's writing as good as it is got even better in this one. She is definitely a character I felt a lot for.
David was very clever not to make this book repetitive. And he ended this book like it needs a sequel. Like how dare you Mr. Definitely enjoyed this and feel it was needed. If you've read Every Day and want to get to know Rhiannon and her life, then pick this book up. To be honest Wowza! To be honest as it is a companion, you can read it in any order.
You don't need to read Every Day first. I thoroughly recommend this book! View all 3 comments. Jun 23, Shannon leaninglights rated it liked it. This is important to understand because you will be disappointed if you go into it with that mindset. There is no time in Another Day that doesn't overlap Every Day. They are, in essence, the same story told from different points of view. In Every Day we saw the unique being th Full review: In Every Day we saw the unique being that was A - jumping bodies, lives, and locations every night.
Nothing was ever familiar or the same. In Another Day, we see Rhiannon, who plays the love interest in the first story. We see her experience with A, from the perspective of someone who's life is ordinary and stationary. So let's start with the good. I think she is a great protagonist: She is a girl who is struggling with life: She isn't sure who she wants to be but she's sure of who she isn't.
