Book Review: Another Day by David Levithan

Read: July 27 - 28   Verdict: 4 Stars

I received a free digital copy from the author/publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest feedback.

Another Day is basically Every Day, just told through the eyes of Rhiannon. To recap, Every Day tells the story of A who wakes up in a different body everyday. When A wakes up in Justin's body, he accidentally falls in love with Rhiannon, Justin's girlfriend. Every Day tells the story of A and Rhiannon and how they deal with their rather odd love story.

While Every Day was amazing and we got to see the world how A saw it, Another Day deals with living life stuck in the same place while the love of your life is god knows where and in who knows! I found it so interesting to see A's life through Rhiannon and how she dealt with her emotions, and how she was able to see A even when he was in the body of different people. Her development in beginning to recognise him was lovely to read and how she was able to sort her feelings out as well. Again, like Every Day, this book brought up some great thoughts and questions for about how people feel for others, sexually and emotionally. And how we can see and recognise each other's souls.

I also loved having an inside view into Rhiannon and Justin's relationship. Another Day gives a private peek into that, and we see both the good and the bad and can understand why Rhiannon stayed with Justin as long as she did and why she was so hesitant to break away from it.

I really loved the ending, and how we got a glimpse of Alexander as Alexander and his feelings towards Rhiannon. For me, I didn't quite get enough of that interaction but I'm just being greedy! While this book, understandably, didn't have quite the same impact on me as Every Day did this is still an amazing book with beautiful, thought-provoking writing.
