Every Day by David Levithan

I picked up Every Day off the shelf after hearing some good things. Even though it took me a few pages to get into it, I loved Every Day. Definitely in this year's top ten.
Every day, A wakes up in different body. This has been A's life since A was born. A has accepted this until A meets Rhiannon. A usually is able to leave each life and not look back but things with Rhiannon are different. A falls in love.
The premise sounds like it would be hard to get into but after the A wakes up in a few different bodies, I looked forward to seeing who A will be today. Sometimes A is male, sometimes female. A doesn't have a gender. I loved the diversity of the people A inhabited. Even more I loved how Levithan wrote about each of the people. Particularly the girl with the serious depression. How a black cloud hung around her. I think that was my favorite chapter. My second favorite was the chapter where A inhabits the body of a transgendered female. The details and the emotion that Levithan put into those two chapters was amazing. I savored the writing of Every Day. It's one I would love to read again.
I would highly recommend Every Day to anyone. The writing as well as the story was amazing. Others who shared their thoughts on Every Day: Pub Writes, The Perpetual Page Turner, My Overstuffed Bookshelf, My Friend Amy, and The Lost Entwife.


  1. Oh yes!! I'm going to have to read this one, no doubt about it!

  2. This is another book that I want to read but haven't yet found the time to. One of these days I'm going to able to read some of these amazing books like I plan on :)
