      And then one day you will look for you in the mirror and you ll no longer be able to identify yourself you ll only see everyone else You ll know that you did what they wanted you to do You will have assimilated And you will hate yourself for it, because it will be too late.This was exactly what I needed to read right now As a fan of Quick s other novels, this book feels both comfortingly familiar, but also different in many ways Nanette O Hare is the kind of misfit we would expect from the autho [...]

      Just because you re good at something doesn t mean you have to do it I am now going to say something I seldom, rarely almost never say, though I wish I did this book spoke to me It spoke to me in a way that unsettled my state of mind It spoke to me and I was tempted to respond I did respond I spent the day wandering in my own mind, thinking about life, thinking about others and thinking about my place on this earth.Conclusion I am glad I rarely read books such as this one, because I would not be [...]

      UPDATE 2.99 on kindle 11 3 2016 Not sure for how longI figured this book would make me cry and it surely did, thank you book I loved so many characters in the book, Nanette, Oliver, Alex, Booker even though he had his moments , Nanette s parents, Officer Damon The book is sad and good and just everything Nanette is a hotshot soccer player at her high school One day her teacher gives her a book to read, The Bubblegum Reaper After reading the book, Nanette is not satisfied with the ending Why did [...]

    5. Matthew on said:

      This one is tough to rate I liked the writing, but that is about it The tone is so cynical and melodramatic it is almost painful to read I can see this one between 2 and 3 stars, but part of me thinks that is too low, and part of me thinks it is too high Now, I am almost 40 and this book is about high school, so right away you might say, Matthew, you can t relate But, I can, because I was there once depressed over the smallest things, picked on, stressed out, writing dramatic poetry, struggling [...]

    6. Tatiana on said:

      You could say this is a standard Matthew Quick book Misfits are his specialty Yet, even though the subjects matter of the story are well trodden by Quick himself too bullying, loneliness, depression, obsession with a work of literature Nanette s experiences affected me Maybe because Quick touches here upon something that YA doesn t explore enough the very real challenges of being an introvert in an extrovert dominated world.Because Nanette s problems are so peculiar to her closed off personality [...]

      Matthew Quick is the cult leader of misfits and weirdo s.Like me.He speaks to us on a personal level and he just knows where it hurts, where it suffers, and he uses it to abuse us with his lyrical words To hurt , to make us suffer , but for some reason, he is a healer as well.He makes us accept our true being and wants us to fight for it.Every Exquisite Thing begins so beautiful with Quick s poignant outlook on society and individuals.The main narrator, Nanette, is very likable, and we follow he [...]

      Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum Behind every exquisite thing that existed, there was something tragic What did I think about this Hmmmmmmm Honestly I m still not quite sure and since none of my friends have read it yet I don t have anyone confirming I once again read something wrong so I m going to leave myself planted firmly in the middle of the road Every Exquisite Thing is the story of Nanette, an average teen who has always done the right thing and followed the path chosen for her b [...]

    9. brekkersbutt on said:

      I feel kind of terrible for rating this book low But despite how short it is, I was really bored and found it particularly bland The main character has almost no personality She s also very stuck up The romance is bland Terrible Boring Unnecessary Look, I get the message the author is trying to tell us about how sometimes you just feel like quitting and there s no shame in doing so and a few other things that I ve conveniently forgotten but the issues that the MC is facing doesn t make me empath [...]

    10. Tabby on said:

      THE REVIEWWhy this book I had it on my tbr list for awhileWhat I thoughtAll i m gonna say is the whole talking in the 3rd person thing was just annoying Also Ruining the prom and her graduation for her boyfriend and Parents and being downright selfish totally ruined the book for me I just hated Nanette, her personality was just horrible I only read it all because it was a quick read.

    11. Brenda Ayala on said:

      Confession time I hated Nanette She was a pretentious snob who looked down on everyone and anyone, and had no real criteria to go on I can see from all the 4 and 5 star reviews that I m very much in the minority with this, but I just couldn t do it I tried to be profound and insightful like Nanette, but then I kept snorting with laughter at that and couldn t do it properly.Here s why Nanette s an idiot because she asks ridiculously stupid questions all the time She s a snob because she thinks sh [...]

    12. Theresa on said:

      Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick is a beautifully written coming of age novel I really loved the protagonist, Nanette O Hare She was relatable, I wanted to be her friend I used to feel the way Nanette felt when I was in high school lost, confused, angry, indifferent, serious, and withdrawn Heck, I still feel all those mixed up emotions even now I m in my mid 30s That s what makes this novel so wellexquisite It doesn t matter what age you are, feeling like outsider is part of the human cond [...]

      You can read this and all of my reviews at Lit Wit Wine DineEvery Exquisite Thing started off well enough I would say that I enjoyed about the first third of the book Then things began to fizzle and I was unable to recover my interest I considered DNF ing it but 1 I ve already DNF d two books this month 2 it was a fast enough read that I didn t feel I was wasting too much time 3 I held a glimmer of hope that the ending would blow me away.I though the premise of the book was a good one two teens [...]

      wow Wow WOW.This book is phenomenal Matthew Quick is able to write out the struggle of so many adolescents that feel like they don t fit the mold that s expected of them I connected with this book It s depth and its honesty were so refreshing and I don t think I ve ever related to a character than I did with Nanette This is the story of Nanette O Hare, a high school senior who is drifting by in her life, going through the motions of what s expected of her Good grades, soccer star, and on the ro [...]

    15. Eva • All Books Considered on said:

      Review originally posted at All Books Considered 5 STARSI am so mad at myself for waiting so long to read something by Matthew Quick I need to immediately read Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock and The Good Luck of Right Now, both of which have been sitting on my kindle for awhile because I loved this book, his latest, so much I seriously think there are probably no two books that speak to me and how I felt when when I was a teenager than Things I Can t Forget by Miranda Kenneally and Every Exquisite [...]

    16. maymay ☕ on said:

      There s something about Matthew Quick s writing that just speaks to me Wow, I sound so dramatic but honestly, it s like he understands and knows how to explain confusion I know a lot of people would dislike this book and I can totally understand why Nanette is a confused teenager nearing her final months of school and she is absolutely lost But at times she comes off as stuck up and ungrateful and hella melodramatic Yet, I relate to herso much.I feel like this coming of age novel is the literal [...]

      I received a copy of this book through NetGalleyTHIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING Every Exquisite Thing is populated with the most dynamic characters who at one point or another, encapsulate every raw emotion you can think of I really loved Nanette as a main character and thought her navigation of her high school years in the wake of reading The Bubblegum Reaper which I totally want a copy of was brilliant Her interactions with the other characters, particularly Alex, were weird and wonderful and I felt [...]

      Disappointing to the highest degree.Okay, not true Silver Linings Playbook is one of my favorite movies andLove May Fail, which is allegedly becoming a movie, and SLP have been on my reading wishlist forever, but I was expecting something .Nanette O Hare which honestly sounds like the name of a rabbit receives a worn, torn copy of The Bubblegum Reaper from her beloved teacher, Mr Graves She finishes it in one day and demands he tell her After he is unable to hence, the open ending she decides t [...]

      This was heart breaking and funny Reminded me of Jennifer Niven s book which covered similar themes.

    20. Annika on said:

      A book for the quiet rebels among us who don t want to go to prom, or to do what s expected just because other people tell us it s for the best.This one surprised me Really, really wonderful.

      People enter our lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime NOOR LOVED IT Perfect for a summer read yet so deeply life changing it s insane So far honestly I think this is the best Matthew Quick book READ IT

    23. Cory on said:

      I was on quite a roll this year I hadn t read a single book I hadn t liked Then, of course, I eventually came across the quintessential oh so very special white girl who has everything but is still discontent book I liked Silver Lining Playbook I liked Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock I don t know what Matthew Quick was going for with this book, but he missed the mark with me.This felt like a desperate attempt at guessing what a teenage girl might sound like if you d chatted with one over breakfast a [...]

    24. Cyndi on said:

      I probably would have liked this better if I hadn t just finished Make Lemonade so I was irritated at Rich Girl Problems In this book a pretty, popular teen girl doesn t feel like she fits in with other kids Of course they drank gallons of booze, gave bj s with as much discretion as a handshake, and turned on each other worse than a pack of dogs So, who would want to fit in Add to her pretty self, involved parents, good grades, and wealth is a natural skill at soccer Yep, not much to like there, [...]

    25. Andrea on said:

      I only finished this because it was written by Matthew Quick I was completely enchanted by his Sort of Like a Rockstar Then, let down by his confusingly absurd The Good Luck of Right Now And now this BIG SIGH Although the premise seemed so promising, I couldn t relate to the selfish, vigilante, bizarre characters Admittedly, poor Oliver was none of these things, but not enough to save this novel Onward.

    26. s a a n c h i on said:

      I feel like I m giving every good book I come across 5 stars these days because I m hardly finding any that I want to really get into But this was exactly the book I needed right now Gravely So it earned the privilege of getting 5 stars Well, there s the type of person who says there are certain types of people and then tries to be one type or the other And then there are others who say bananas to the whole concept of types and won t allow themselves to be filed neatly away under some sort of ri [...]

      My first thought when reading about The Bubblegum Reaper was Ok, that was weird I didn t get any Buddhist, or minimalist, or existentialist, or even nihilist implications from the Wrigley story and I hoped I wasn t supposed to Soon I learned that Wrigley s story is supposed to be weird, and that weird is a compliment in the world of this book Mr Graves and Nanette are weirdos and Mr Graves says all great writers were weirdos, too that our best artists, musicians, and thinkers were first labeled [...]

      Oh Matthew, you give me the feels so bad every single time I love that about you, and even though I know it is coming you can still surprise me with a great big feely moment I love your troubled teens and the way they never quite fit in the world Nanette is in her last year of high school, she is great at soccer and in line for scholarships to college Then she falls out with her favourite teacher, she encounters a book which she connects to in all kinds of ways and sets about finding out the ans [...]
