Everyone We've Been
Addie takes drastic measures to fill in the blanks and visits a shadowy medical facility that promises to “help with your memory.” But at the clinic, Addie unwittingly discovers it is ...more
It started a little slow but it’s definitely interesting and I love the character’s voice. The pacing is the only issue I have and it’s a lit ...more

I tried, so, so, so hard to stick with this book till the end, but it’s been over ten days and as hard as I tried, I’m just not loving it.
So, it’s officially time to S T O P !
Surprisingly, there were parts of this book that really got me intrigued however, I think the deal breaker was the fact that it is a 400 PAGED “CONTENPORARY” BOOK.
I mean, if you wanna write a long-ish contemporary, it’s gotta be hella interesting. It cannot afford to be boring!!
And let’s be real, this bo ...more
Some days, it's hard to find a book that is exactly what you're looking to read at the moment. When I picked up Sarah Everett's debut novel earlier this week, I knew it was the kind of read I was seeking. I instantly clicked with the prose and finished the book in one sitting.
Even though it wasn't the first time I've read a book about memory wipes and the plot wasn't all that hard to predict, there were several things I found very refreshing in Everyone W ...more
At first I thought that “Yeah, it’s okay, another cliche story.” but as I was reading it and slowly making progress, the magic happened and there I was totally hooked with the story. The first part of the story made me think, “Is this a paranormal book?” I was so wrong, I love how the story unfolded, I think that each revelations where perfectly placed in the right setting of the story. OH MY F ...more
This book is basically The Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind...but without Jim Carey trying to be all serious (and failing) and without the dude who played Frodo (I think it was the dude who played Frodo) being all creepy-stalkery (and creepily succeeding-ew!). Oh ye ...more
The book explores her complicated family relationship, overcoming grief, crash and burn first love, and more. There's just something missing why I couldn't rate it higher than five stars.
Overall: I really like this book. The protagonist would certainly reason out with countless of readers. If you’re a fan of Adam Silvera and We Were Liars, you should definitely pick it up. ...more
To be completely honest, I thought the concept of this book sounded really interesting. And then I saw that GORGEOUS cover and well, Mandy needed it ASAP. In fact, I even put it on a birthday book list, and th ...more
I did not like this book. At all. I'm very picky when it comes to this kind of book because usually this is what happens: I end up hating it. If you didn't know, I'm a psychology major, so I take mental health issues in books very seriously and love it when it's well done. Unfortunately, all this book has is a beautiful cover and a very promising synopsis, stop counting now.
Against what you might thi ...more
So I will say this:
This book is exactly what I needed. It's about relationships and friendships and family. It's about how we go on, especially when we don't think we can and/or don't want to. It's about whether painful memories are still worth having.
It's wonderful and wrenching.
It's a book you need to read.
Highly recommended. ...more
This made me cry. A lot. But I don't regret these tears. What I do regret is what was eventually robbed from me. Well, with what I felt was robbed from me. I want to punch someone. I totally didn't expect that. Totally DID NOT. This book was my personal undoing.
I don't even know what else to say. Loved this bo ...more
book. Wow ! What an amazing story! From the first chapter this novel is a page turner. The author keeps you engaged and wants you to read more from the very beginning. You will feel every type of emotion while reading this book. It was very thought provoking, with a lot of twists and turns that I would have never predicted.
I would definitely read more by this author. I loved the story she had to tell.
I think I've just read too many in the last year with this same theme. It's something that I'm not sure how much I agree with - if I think it's actually something we will see in our lifetimes. I'm not so sure, but maybe......and I'm not sure how I feel about it.
I do like that this is a cautionary tale and a story about moving on. And the cover is fascinating. ...more
I was already hoping that this one would be a gem, and boy I am so happy it was. The book features a before and after, and with each passing page we see more and more of what is going on and how everything spiralled out of control.
It all starts with our MC sitting in the ...more
There are a few objectively awesome books I've read. Even if they're not everyone's favorites, most people who have read enough books to know what they're talking about will agree that they're just inherently great. Such as The Princess Bride, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice, Peter Pan (yes, I do ignore any negative comments about ...more

When I read the summary for this book, I knew that it was a book that I just had to read. That summary just hooked me and it sounded like something that I would absolutely love, and of course I was right!
Everyone We've Been is a story about Addie, who after an accident is seeing a boy that no one else can see. Upon trying to figure out what's going on, she discovers some things that she wasn...more
Here’s why you need to read this lovely book:
1. It may sound clićhe, but it’s not.
Girl in a small town rediscovers herself with the help of the people from her past. That’s the general storyline. But the main point here is that it does not stop there. When things started to get a bit weird, I buckled myself in. I expected that there will be paranormal elements, since Addie is seeing things from her past that no one else can see. Yet it is so much more than tha ...more
the above question is a bit of an overall theme in this novel, as it pertains to not only the main character, but gives us, as the readers, something to think about while reading the novel.
everyone we’ve been is the story of Addison Sullivan, a sixteen-year old viola player who meets a cute boy at a bus stop, and begins seeing him in various lo ...more
This book is AMAZING.
First of all, the concept of memory splicing and its application in the book is brilliant. It's such an interesting concept and the way the author dealt with the morality of it all was great.
Next, the twists. I was kept guessing what was going to happen next the entire book, and there were so many great plot twists that really made the book excellent.
Finally, the romance. One of the things that I loved the most about Everyone We've Been was that the romance was ...more
Simply raw emotions and truly heartbreaking. A beautiful story of friendship, love, pain, family, our decisions (the good ones or the bad ones) and how to deal with all of them.
It's real, not over the top, with a reality that I could read in a Green novel ! It's really good and emotional, pure, fresh and passionated. You don't get bored because you go back and forth into the story line to give you the chance to understand by yourself the story and get different stages of her life.
I'm de ...more
