Book Review: Another Day by David Levithan

How do you have another day after every day?

Every day is the same for Rhiannon. She has convinced herself that she deserves her distant, moody boyfriend, Justin. She knows the rules: Don’t be needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Then, out of the blue, they share a perfect day together – perfect, that is, until Justin doesn’t remember anything about it. Confused, and yearning for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts to question everything. And that’s when a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that time with … wasn’t Justin at all.

This is the sequel/companion to Every Day (which I reviewed an hour ago). The book take place during the same time as the first, but obviously in Rhianon's point of view. I think you should probably read Every Day first, but it might not matter.

Reading from Rhiannon's point of view does make her more likeable but her boyfriend is just straight up an arsehole. There is nothing redeeming about him. With being in Rhiannon's head, it would have been nice to see why there ended up together besides Rhiannon's low selfesteem. Actually, in a lot we've still only scratched the surface of her life after being in her head.

The thing that really stood out to me was the number of pop-culture they are in this when there was none in the first book. Yes, different points of views but I now know what songs were being sang despite not being out when the first book came out. Not as a single anyway.

Overall, I give this four out of five stars for awkward emails. It was intriguing to see the events of Every Day from Rhiannon's point of view. It was slightly less charming than the first day but A is in this less. I would recommend this book if you like the first book to read this and I of course recommend Every Day.

I got this book for review off NetGalley and Electic Monkey. It came out on Jul 30 2015 so you might be able to find at your local bookstore that never has YA book the week they release.
