Everything, Everything

Title: Everything, Everything
Author: Nicola Yoon
Rating:  5/5

Description:
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.


My Short & Sweet Review:

Discover prosperity magic cleansings, blessings and banishing of negativity, and more, that builds upon the energies of the sabbats.

My Short and Sweet Review: I was more into Wiccan when I was younger but this book was interesting because you could find ingredients in your very own supermarket in your neighber and not look like a goober getting them. Because when I was young I would get the looks... I live in a very christian town where Wiccan Shops don't survive so this was a really good book to look through and read and next time I'll be ready! This book is going to be out to pick up on Oct 8th so get your own copy!
