Lake Tahoe, California

If you know me at all, you know that I love Lake Tahoe with a passion! It is hands down my favorite place to get away from everything. The air is fresh, the lake is blue as can be and the scenery is beautiful. It’s so peaceful. I used to go all the time when I was a little kid– the good times. There’s is no other place that gives such a sense of nostalgia. I’ve spent vacations there during both the winter and summer, with my family and with my boy friend’s, when I was a baby all the way up through my young adulthood and I can safely say it never gets old.

Find any edition of this title on Book Depository I know what you might be thinking, “Cat, why did you read this book if you didn’t like Every Day?”. Well, I had already requested this one on Netgalley and I felt like I had to keep my promise and read this one. I wasn’t excited and my fears turned out to be true. But first of all, please read my review for Every Day. Like Every Day, Another Day is the story of A, a person who wakes up in a new body everyday. Everything changes when A falls in love with a girl, named Rhiannon.
