really liked it
Read from February 11 to 12, 2012

I'd like to give this book 3.5 stars, but since that's not possible, I'll help it out rather than take away from it. The writing in this book is very solid--the characters are believable (if not a little ridiculous at times, but who isn't?) and the plot isn't over-the-top or extreme. It's excellent as a first person narrative and really gets to the root of all of Sydney, the narrator's, problems and thoughts and feelings.

It's not a great novel of literary merit, but it does rise above the typical chick lit about best friends and boys (although there's plenty of that here) that I'm used to reading.

However, I still found myself bothered by the stupid phrase "my pregnancy" on every single page at least once. I read the phrase "my pregnancy" so many times that I began to hate the word pregnancy. If that was the intention of the author, well, kudos, but the last thing I want from a book is to become so disgusted with some part of it (however small) that it makes me want to put it down in frustration.

All in all, despite my tendency to nitpick, I liked "Every Little Thing In The World."
