Every Day (Every Day, #1) by David Levithan

Every Day (Every Day, #1)  by David Levithan

Every time I see the title of this book, the song “Every day (I have the blues)” by Duke Ellington pops into my mind. Even though I like the song more than I like this book, I can see how the two could fit together very nicely. The song is either sarcastic or sad depending on who is singing, and this book picks up on this sad yet awestruck tone of love.  In my mind I categorize this book into two parts. It has the cool part where someone, A, wakes up in a different body every day so it offers a unique perceptive which creates interesting questions and then there is the other part, where A instantly falls in love with a girl and then follows her around for the rest of the book even though she already has a boyfriend. The whole book felt fragmented as these two aspects were meshed together harshly. Towards the end, it finally felt as if the two separate stories came together, but it only occurred for a short time, then the book abruptly ended. It was very inconclusive, and left more questions than answers.  I would not recommend it because there is not much else to like other than the premise. In my opinion it had a lot more potential than it was able to pick up on and so overall it was disappointing to read.
