Every day a different body. Every day a different life. Every day in love with the same girl.
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. Because finally A has found someone he wants to be with—day in, day out, day after day.

I really liked this book. It is very different from what I am used to. The story starts with this entity called “A” and how his/her life develops. It turns out that “A” is not human, or well, is not a person per se, its a type of soul that wakes everyday in the body of someone else and lives his or her life trying to stick to what is normal for the host. Everything suddenly changes for “A” when it meets Rhiannon and falls in love. But how can it ever love and be there for her if he is not “there” the whole time?

Ir becames obsessed and looks for her every day no matter what changes are made to its host, until, someone finds out that “not remembering” what happened the day before is not normal.

I read it in 3 days during a trip to Las Vegas on the airplane and before going to bed. The story is really catchy and it has twists and shifts that make it even better! There is a sequel and a prequel. I am looking forward to reading them!

  1. The premise is really interesting, if slightly weird! I have a hard time finding non-human relationships romantic hahaha (especially if there’s a non-corporeal component to it)
    But this one definitely sounds really cute and adorable, despite everything.
    Amazing review, Gina!
