    Exclamation this or that, whatever or wherever

    Hi everyone :)

    I'm writing a review about a book that I read, and I was wondering about using 'whatever' or 'wherever' and 'this' or 'that'.

    ''I’ve always loved to read. I don’t know exactly why, but what I’m positive about is that it makes me travel and leave for a beautiful journey across... wherever/whatever it is! It can be, for an instant, a beautiful and colourful universe and then fall apart tragically and become a messy world...

    However, you and I both know that not every author is able to accomplish that/this.''

It can be, for instance, a beautiful and colourful universe and then fall apart tragically and become a messy world.However, you and I both know that not every author is able to accomplish that/this.'' Not sure about this.

    My suggestion:

    "I've always loved reading. I don't know exactly why, but what I'm positive about is that it makes me travel and set off for a beautiful journey across....wherever it is! It can be, for an instant, a beautiful ........

    ..............to accomplish this"
