Book Review 33. Everything, Everything

Everything, Everything
Book: Everything, Everything
Author: Nicola Yoon
Genre: Young Adult Romance
Pages: 320
Published: September 1st, 2015

This ebook was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Synopsis: My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.

Top Ten Tuesday. 10 Fairytale Retellings On My TBR

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This week I'm telling you the 10 retellings of fairytales I most want to read! I was very flexible with what counts as a fairytale, since I included retellings of more recent novels like The Island of Dr. Moreau and The Wizard of Oz. Regardless, this is my list and I will write what I want. I also tried to only put down one retelling for each fairytale so this list didn't turn out to be 7 "Little Red Riding Hood" retellings or something.
