“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re excited about and anticipating the release of! I decided to take part in the series here on my blog!
This weeks book is:
Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon
Expected Publication: September 1
Goodreads Synopsis: This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she’s ever known. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.
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.
When I first discovered this book and read the premise of it, it immediately went onto my most anticipated list for this years releases. It sounds so good and interesting with the main character being allergic to everything. The pre-release ratings on Goodreads are sky high and I have heard nothing but amazing things about this one. The cover for this book is so pretty as well. I am sucker for gorgeous book covers! I am preordering this book for sure so that I can have it on release day!
