Cover Reveal: When You Were Everything, Ashley Woodfolk

Hi friends! I am very, VERY excited today to get the opportunity to… well, reveal something to you all. I hope you’ll adore it just as much as I do!

Today’s June 8th, a.k.a #NationalBestFriendDay and I want to take a moment to talk about my best friend in the entire world.

I’m on the right, my best friend’s on the left. Picture taken in Porlezza, Italy, a couple of years ago. I’m sorry, this is still not my face. #tooshyforitall

To be completely honest, I most likely wouldn’t be here, wouldn’t be writing this if I haven’t had a best friend like her. Through life, friendships break-ups, disappointments and anxiety, she’s always been there. Through my book blogging adventure ever since it started, she’s been there, cheering me on and making me leave the computer when I need to take a breath. She’s been my best travelling companion, my closest confidant and, forever and always, my best friend in the entire world.

Words aren’t enough to express how much I love you ❤️

You might recognize that picture from years and years ago on here, you might feel the kind of look-a-like thing we got going on here, too. My best friend in the entire world is my sister. ❤️

Friendships are so, so important in life.

And to my dismay, they’re not as highlighted in young adult books. They’re not the main focus , when they should be, compared to romances.

This is one of the main reasons why, when I first heard about When You Were Everything, I gasped, screamed and added the book immediately to  my TBR. The other main reason is that Ashley Woodfolk’s debut, The Beauty That Remains, broke my heart into a million pieces and you all know I’m here for these kind of books.

Without further ado, let’s introduce you to this wonderfully promising sophomore novel and its stunning book cover…






When You Were Everything, by Ashley Woodfolk

Book cover illustrated by Bex Glendining ; designed by Angela Carlino.

You can’t rewrite the past, but you can always choose to start again.

It’s been twenty-seven days since Cleo and Layla’s friendship imploded.

Nearly a month since Cleo realized they’ll never be besties again.

Now, Cleo wants to erase every memory, good or bad, that tethers her to her ex–best friend. But pretending Layla doesn’t exist isn’t as easy as Cleo hoped, especially after she’s assigned to be Layla’s tutor. Despite budding new friendships with other classmates—and a raging crush on a gorgeous boy named Dom—Cleo’s turbulent past with Layla comes back to haunt them both.

Alternating between timelines of Then and Now, When You Were Everything blends past and present into an emotional story about the beauty of self-forgiveness, the promise of new beginnings, and the courage it takes to remain open to love.

When You Were Everything is releasing March 10th, 2020, don’t forget to add it to your TBRs!!

What do you think of that GORGEOUS BOOK COVER?

Do you also think we need more books about friendships?? Are you going to be reading this wonderful looking book? I’d love to hear from you in comments!

  1. I hadn’t heard of this before but now it’s on my TBR (: thank you. The cover definitely fits the blurb perfectly! And I definitely get your point about friendships in YA books, some have them but there are a lot of others that don’t as much as they should.

  2. This book sounds great, and like it might actually break my heart a little. Stopped speaking to my best friend when we were in school, and it caused a few ripples among some others. We reconnected eventually, but it never was quite the same, and we ended up drifting apart. More friendships in YA would be great, especially as it’s friendships rather than romances which probably influenced people more as teenagers (I know it did for me)

    1. I’m glad you agree! I feel like we need more of these kind of books, especially knowing how important and how… well, complicated friendships can be and, heartbreaking at times, too 🙂
      I can’t wait for us to read this book! 🙂
      Thank you so much for your comment, Elle! ❤

  3. Yesss I am SO keen for this! I think friendships should star in YA a lot more because it’s usually such a big part of being a teen, all the highs and lows of friendship. 🙈I liked her first book too so I’m keen to read more from her!! eeep!

    1. 200% agree, friendships were even more important than romance in my teen years tbh so I feel like everyone needs more of these in books haha 🙂
      Thank you Cait! Can’t wait to read this 😀


    1. Awww Olivia, of course, thank YOU for always being so supportive and amazing, I’m so lucky to have you in my life ❤
      This book sounds SO good, right? I can't wait to read it either 😀

  4. I am in love with this cover!!! It’s so simple and cute, but also beautiful (and I feel like there are starting to be a lot of covers with this kind of vibe!). And what you wrote about your sister was so sweet, I don’t think I have that close of a relationship with my sister but I love her a lot and I can’t imagine life without her haha.

  5. It is FABULOUS! And I loved the sound of this book the minute I heard about it! I absolutely think we need more friendship books, and this one I feel like nearly everyone can relate to. I mean, who among us hasn’t had a friendship that we’d wished had lasted, or mourn, or are so, so glad we have (like yours with your best friend, I am so glad you have each other!) Thank you for sharing it, and your lovely story too!

  6. AHHH that bit about your sister was beautiful to read!! It’s truly the best feeling to know that you have friends in this world! And this cover is equally beautiful! I absolutely love cover that tell stories. And I love that there are clearly POCs in the cover. Will check this book out because I agree that we need way more books in YA that center on friendship because they are just as important as romantic love!

  7. I’ve been somewhat curious about Ashley Woodfolk’s first book, but I’m for sure reading this one! Friendship breakups are so hard and I so wish there were more books about them. This cover is also super adorable!
