Tiara’s Pick: The Maze Runner

This was the best book EVER!!! It has lots of adventure and a hit of romance. The best part is there are three other books. You need to read this book!!! :)

Every Day by David Levithan

Every Day by David Levithan follows the story of “A,” a soul without a body who wakes up every morning in someone else’s life. Never knowing another way of life, A is content with this… until he wakes up one day in the body of Justin, and falls in love with Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. Suddenly, A finds a reason to want to stay in one body, forever. Knowing it may be impossible, A must make a hard decision–disrupt the lives he temporarily inhabits, or say goodbye to Rhiannon.

The premise of this book is so different from anything I’ve read before, and I found A’s situation really fascinating. The concept of a soul born without a permanent body is something I hadn’t ever really thought of before, but Levithan did a wonderful job creating a world in which such a thing is possible. The exploration of the issues of gender, morality, and what it means to love someone gave the story much needed depth as well.

Overall, I found Every Day to be a captivating read and I couldn’t put it down until I’d turned the very last page!
