Aloha! Took me 7.5 hours to read this book called Everything, Everything and my brain is still processing what I read. I mean what just happened ? Well, I'm still figuring it out. Books of young adult genre make me cry but this one is different, has happy ending, is sad and tragic all at once. Made me think about how small choices affect our life, the flutter of butterfly can result in hurricane.It's a book about 18 year old girl called Madeline Whittier who is suffering from Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID) which means she's allergic to world and has never been outside for 17 years. The only real people she has seen is her mom and her nurse, Carla. She is afraid to take chances till she meets Oliver and her world is no longer same. She is no longer afraid and she is NO longer SICK.
Quoting down my favourite lines from this book:
✨Fairy Tales: Once upon a time there was a girl whose entire life was a lie.
A universe that can wink into existence can wink out again.
There is more to life than being alive.
⭐It's never just a moment. It's series of them.
Love is worth everything. Everything.
⚡Once you become a part of world it becomes a part of you too.
Into all lives a little turbulence must fall.
Promise : The lie you want to keep
In the beginning there was nothing. And then there was everything.
️You are not living if you aren't regretting.
️ Maybe I'm holding out hope that one day, someday, things will change.
〽️ Everything is a risk. Not doing anything is a risk. It's up to you.
Dear Library, Aren't you the place which witnessed most silent love stories, a second home for bibliophiles and a much of sneaked food while completing assignments and I, dating myself by reading a novel and sipping hot coffee! I remember those days of 4th grade when ma'am made us visit you every Saturday. I didn't know I was going to spend the rest of my time here after school till my papa comes to pick up me from the office. I slowly started exploring your book by book, magazine by the magazine. From reading kids storybooks to novel I involved myself in reading and writing. Every day, month, year you were expanding by adding daily newspapers, journals, new novels, bibliographies. You taught me how things are very important to be in an organized way. I was definitely not a silent person but more of a chatty person but with you, I learned to maintain silence. When I entered the college, first thought I had about how will be the new library! And when I saw you in the college I realized this 5 years will be amazing with a new but similar place.
Talking about most love stories that I saw in movies, how the letters were exchanged and the confessions were made, how hands were brushed to each other I saw that love here, exchanging glances at each other. You have your own fragrance of books that is a weed to any book lover. The noise of flipping pages never disturbs anyone. And even the sound of ticking clock never made me look at, how much time has passed.
A book is a friend to one who reads it and you are a shelter where the book brings readers. You have also given a safe place to spend time alone who are unable to concentrate due to their own issues. A reading book changes a person completely in a new person and yes that has changed me a lot and hopefully many people. I am thankful to you for amusing me with a lot of stories and knowledge and keeping me at the place where I am.
In each and everything around me I see you I feel you I hear you Each and every moment I breathe I fill myself with my love for you for keeping myself zoetic I need to exhale too I feel thwarted as I am unable to express the plethora of my thoughts of you My pen helps me in this more than my organs do Otherwise, I feel heavy I feel claustrophobic.
When you love someone more and more I think your heart never fades his image never keeps his anger never spells bad about him never unlove him..! Love is life and don't miss that life The loving life..!
