Review: Every Day by David Levithan

Every Day
Every Day by David Levithan

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I had high expectations from this book after reading the reviews on Goodreads, not to mention the interesting book cover and summary. But alas! I didn’t like it that much. I really didn’t feel there was any connection/ chemistry between A and Rhiannon. I am giving it two stars only for the awesome description of the regular family life that A misses. There are some awesome quotes that make one ponder over the kinda life one is living. As far as the love story of A and Rhiannon is concerned, there’s no spark, no chemistry, no true love from Rhiannon’s side, in my opinion. It is a very unexciting love story.

It’s 1861 and Edward is 100 years old. He is wandering around in Georgia in search of blood, animal’s blood. He is thirsty and disgruntled and lonely. He finds nothing and no one but just when he is about to turn back, he sees a girl, dressed in a long floral dress, working diligently on a plantation. That’s Scarlett. She is working on her plantation, Tara plantation, the only thing which is dear to her. She lives for that land, her own land which she has grown after working day and night. Never before had Edward seen such a beauty. He took no time to fall in love with her.

Edward: Excuse me. I am looking for Mr. Hamilton’s residence. If you can help me with the same, I would be very grateful.

Scarlett: I know no one named Hamilton. Now if you will please excuse me.

Edward: I see you are worried. Is there anything I can help you with?

Scarlett: Fiddle-dee-dee. Can’t you see I am working? Now go away and let me work.

Edward: I just offered to help you.

And When We Met – A short story!

Just when he is sitting in a library thinking how boring his life has become, a girl with big hazel eyes and long hair walks in the library. He looks at her and then looks at her again. She was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen in his life and he felt the love-at-first-sight feeling for the first time. She sits next to him and he somehow finds the courage to start the conversation.

“Um, Hi. I am Adam.” He says with a broad smile on his face.

“Okay.” She replies.

“Hmm. So she is playing hard to get.” He thinks.

“So, what’s your name?” he tries again.

“Not interested.” She replies curtly.

“Oh. It must be a very boring name then.” Saying so, he turns away.

“Excuse me. Who do you think you are?”

“Who do you think I am?”

Some of my favorite songs!

  1. Empty Apartment by Yellowcard

Image

I heard this song first time in my favorite TV series- One Tree Hill. It’s beautifully written and composed. I heard that this song was dedicated by one of the band members to his ex-band mate and I feel that it’s a perfect dedication. The song always reminds me of my old friends whom I have lost touch with and wish I can get that time back.

My favourite lines in the song are:

“It’s okay to be angry and never let go

It only gets harder the more that you know

When you get lonely if no one’s around

You know that I’ll catch you when you’re falling down

We came together but you left alone

And I know how it feels to walk out on your own

May be someday I will see you again

And you’ll look me in my eyes and call me your friend”

2. Say all I need by One Republic

One republic is one of my favorite bands. Almost every song of theirs is my favourite. So it was difficult for me to choose just one song. Well, I find this song really motivating and encouraging. It makes you not to stop trying, not to give up. Problems keep coming and going. You just need to keep moving on.

3. One Day by Jack Savoretti

Image

It’s a romantic track. I heard it in the film Post Grad and it was my instant favorite  In the film it was about a guy, who is in love with his best friend but is hesitating to tell her. It’s a sweet song which I wish one day some guy sings for me too! 😉

Love these lines:

“I know you better than I know myself

How I feel is the only thing that I can never ever tell ya”

4. I loved her first by Heartland

Image

The best father-daughter song I have ever listened to. I just can’t explain in words how beautiful and soulful this song is. If you haven’t listened to it yet, then do it. And I’m sure you will love it and include it in your favorites too.

5. A Thousand Years by Christina Perri

love-couple

I’m glad that I didn’t miss this song in my life. I’m glad that Christina presented this song to us. It’s a romantic song about what a person feels when he/she finally meets the love of his/her life. I would say to all the romantics out there that this song is not to be missed!

And yes, my favorite lines:

And all along I believed

I would find you

Time has brought your heart to me

I have loved you

For a thousand years

I will love you

For a thousand more.

Well, that’s all for now. Keep blogging and keep exploring!
