    Every morning, A wakes in a different person’s body, a different person’s life. There’s never any warning about where it will be or who it will be. A has made peace with that, even established guidelines by which to live: Never get too attached. Avoid being noticed. Do not interfere. It’s all fine until the morning that A wakes up in the body of Justin and meets Justin’s girlfriend, Rhiannon. From that moment, the rules by which A has been living no longer apply....

    If you could sum up Every Day in three words, what would they be?

    Surprisingly heart warming


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    I am not an avid YA reader and was not aware this was one. When I first herard the main character was 16, I almost made the mistake of turning it off. Thank goodness I didn't! David Levithan has the wonderful ability to keep the story flowing so it was no surprise that I had to listen to it in one sitting. Alex Mckenna did a wonderful job in bringing the characters to life.

    The recent Strigoi attack at St. Vladimir’s Academy was the deadliest ever in the school’s history, claiming the lives of Moroi students, teachers, and guardians alike. Even worse, the Strigoi took some of their victims with them . . . including Dimitri.

    This narrator was 100 times better than the one who read the 2nd and 3rd book! Much easier to get back into the story and she made sure to use Russian accents!

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    Barbara says: "A feast for the mind and imagination"

    Pleasantly surprised with a book so well written by a first comer and the performance was fabulous by Jennifer Ikeda!
