Every day is the same for Rhiannon. 

She has accepted her life, convinced herself that she deserves her distant, temperamental boyfriend, Justin, even established guidelines by which to live: Don’t be too needy. Avoid upsetting him. Never get your hopes up.

Until the morning everything changes. Justin seems to see her, to want to be with her for the first time, and they share a perfect day—a perfect day Justin doesn’t remember the next morning. Confused, depressed, and desperate for another day as great as that one, Rhiannon starts questioning everything. Then, one day, a stranger tells her that the Justin she spent that day with, the one who made her feel like a real person . . . wasn’t Justin at all.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received an ARC of Another Day in the mail. Every Day was on my radar, and receiving this book for review meant that I would have to start the series. Luckily, my sister had bought Every Day, which I then proceeded to devour in one sitting because I loved it so much. Knowing that this was the same story from Rhiannon’s point of view, I decided take a little bit of a break between reading Every Day and Another Day. I knew that if this was Rhiannon’s story, the conversations she has with A would be pretty much the same, and I didn’t want to get a headache from reading the same stuff twice in a row. However, I couldn’t hold off for long and after reading only three books in-between, I picked this one up. My sister peeked at this one earlier and was slightly disappointed. She wanted to find out what happens to A after the end of Every Day and got annoyed that this was just the same story, but from another perspective. I will admit that I too was a little sad that this one wasn’t going to continue with A’s story, but I really liked Rhiannon’s character in the first novel so I was excited to find out what exactly was going through her mind throughout Every Day.

I read Another Day in one sitting. I just wish I’d been a little more patient with starting this one because, as I’d predicted, I ended up with a slight headache from re-reading some of the same conversations and storyline regarding Rhiannon and A. That’s not to say I hated the book. Quite the opposite actually. I loved this one! While I still like Every Day better, this one was still amazing. I’m just glad it wasn’t exactly the same–for instance, we get to learn a lot more about Justin and Rhiannon’s relationship with him. While he is a jerk (surprise, surprise) there were some moments when I got WHY she loves him. But yeah, learning more about him was pretty cool since we don’t get much of a glimpse of him in the first novel from A’s perspective. We also got to see more of Rhiannon’s friends, especially Rebecca and Preston. They were barely mentioned in Every Day so it was really interesting to see this other side of her.

Another thing about looking at the story from Rhiannon’s point of view is that we got to see and understand her reactions to her interactions with A. I remembered the several comments that A makes about her reactions in Every Day and surprisingly sometimes they didn’t line up to what A thought she was thinking. This was especially true for the first interaction, when A is in Justin’s body and sees Rhiannon for the first time. It was just intriguing to see the differences in outlook for the same situation. Some of the unanswered questions from the first book were also answered in Another Day. For instance, A and Rhiannon help out a girl that A has possessed for the day. We don’t know much about after, but in this book we find out! There’s also the emails that Rhiannon almost sends and her reactions to the different people that A is every day–it was just pretty cool to see the differences with A’s view of Rhiannon and reading the story from Rhiannon’s POV, because she seems a lot more idolised and perfect in A’s story, but this one shows her flaws, her cracks, and her inner-conflicts.

The end was a bit of a surprise for me. At the end of Every Day we’re lead to believe that Rhiannon’s end of the story is tied up. Well... kind of. However, the end of Another Day changes everything. I want another book in this series–one that alternates between A’s and Rhiannon’s perspectives, because as I see it this story is FAR from over. I mean, it wouldn’t be terrible if the story didn’t continue, but now with this ending there is so much more that could happen...and I’m hoping it does.

Another Day was incredible. It was such a beautiful follow-up to the absolutely gorgeous Every Day, and did not disappoint. I just hope that there’s going to be another book in this series because David Levithan is a wonderful storyteller and I’m DYING to find out what happens after. It goes without saying–my fingers are (very tightly) crossed.
