Dying of embarrassment, because I did a Standalone Sunday post on a book that I KNEW was not a standalone. Apparently, I just really wanted to talk about this book!
Happy, happy Sunday, my bookish friends! I was reminded of how much I adore this book and everything David Leviathan writes earlier this week when I was chatting about Levithan’s work with a couple other bloggers. The outcome of that conversations, basically, was that if you’ve ever read ANYTHING he’s written, you understand that he’s a literary genius and author of nothing but beautiful, BEAUTIFUL books. This one though, is probably my favorite of all.
Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme created by Megan@bookslayerReads. This meme is about a Standalone book (that is not part of a series) that you loved and would recommend. Be sure to check out her awesome bookish blog when you have a minute.
Every Day by David Leviathan
Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere.
It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.
I recommend pairing Every Day with an #Equality Merlot. Yes, there are actual wines that are all about equality just like this author and this wonderful novel, which centers around gender equality and love.
This book is just absolutely GORGEOUS you guys! I’m realizing how many stunning YA contemporary novels are out there as I’m participating in the Standalone Sunday meme. I would really, REALLY love to see some great standalone fantasy novels. In the meantime, please read this beautiful book, because I think we all need to feel some equality and love right now.
