Everything Everything
by Nicola Yoon
-Illness, Romance, YA
Amazon | Goodreads

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.

=====> Listened to the audio version. Found this to be a little more than the usual bubble boy kind of story. Uplifting story that brings about appreciation of the details of life.

AND binge watching:

=====> I watched the season premiere of season 2 of The Affair at a local theatre last Tuesday as I was offered a free viewing. To prepare for the event, I watched the first episode of from the first season to get an idea of what I was in for as it was new to me.

The episode one for season two was just as intrigueing as episode one for season one! I did not feel spoiled - just more curious!

The storytelling is innovative using different character perspectives on same scenes with flashbacks to provide details that fleshes out a scene in eye-opening ways. The different character versions of a scene overall creates unreliable sources to me. So I keep wondering what is the real deal?

And now, I am going to binge season one to get caught up!

The Affair
tv series, season one
-drama, mystery
Website | Wiki | imdb

The psychological effects of an affair between a married waitress at a Hamptons diner and a teacher who spends his summer at his in-laws' estate on the island.
