Everyday/Six Earlier Days

1 06 2013

Alright, so I read Everday by my all-time favourite author, David Levithan, last year and of course, I loved it. About a month ago, I found out that apparently there’s a companion piece titled Six Earlier Days, available as an e-book that outlines six previous days of A’s life before the events of Everyday.

So I placed a hold on it at the library, and when I started reading, it seemed an awful lot like Everyday, but I thought the six days might be at the end (I didn’t know the six days happened prior to Everyday) so I kept on reading and finished it today. There was nothing about six other days anywhere.

After a brief google search, I found Six Earlier Days available online, as a separate thing from Everyday. The library was wrong! I left a comment on the page, but I should probably alert someone who can actually fix that.

Anyway, I finished Six Earlier Days and I gotta say, the last day, with Mark and Sam, is really cute and just a little bittersweet. I wish I could actually write and finish that as a story in itself. That’s the awesomeness of Levithan’s writing, and Everyday: each day is so different, with unique characters and situations, that they would make great short films in their own rights.

As a writer, I’m jealous.

PS. Apologies for the lack of slutiness in my photos. There are two reasons for this.
1. I feel like I’ve parodied them all (if you have one I should make fun of, show me!)
2. I’m becoming self-conscious of my body… though I probably shouldn’t give a crap.
