.The Story(summary from Goodreads)

In this enthralling companion to his New York Times bestseller Every Day, David Levithan (co-author of Will Grayson, Will Grayson with John Green) tells Rhiannon’s side of the story as she seeks to discover the truth about love and how it can change you.

Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person . . . wasn’t Justin at all.

My Thoughts

I remember liking Every Day a lot, and I was a bit shocked at first when I saw that David Levithan had written a sequel. It was a great standalone and before even reading Another Day I didn’t think that a sequel was needed. After reading, my opinion is very much the same. Sure there are a few new things we learn, but overall I would have been happy with just one book.

I’m not going to lie, I wasn’t massively interested in reading A’s story from Rhiannon’s POV. Her side of things was, well a little boring. There was a lot of rambling about her relationship issues with Justin, and it wasn’t even exciting relationship issues, she just didn’t love him anymore yet she won’t break up with him. I found her personality a bit lacking, she has all these friends around her but she just seems to shut off from everyone and everything.

.The Story(summary from Goodreads)

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.
