Opposite of Always
Opposite of Always | Justin Reynolds
'One of the best love stories I've ever read.' Angie Thomas, bestselling author of The Hate U Give. From debut author justin a. reynolds comes The Opposite of Always, a razor-sharp, hilarious and heartfelt novel about the choices we make, the people we choose and the moments that make life worth reliving. Perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and John Green. When Jack and Kate meet at a party, he knows he's falling - hard. Soon she's meeting his best friends and Kate wins them over as easily as she did Jack. But then Kate dies. And their story should end there. Yet Kate's death sends Jack back to the beginning, the moment they first meet, and Kate's there again. Healthy, happy, and charming as ever. Jack isn't sure if he's losing his mind. Still, if he has a chance to prevent Kate's death, he'll take it. Even if that means believing in time travel. However, Jack will learn that his actions are not without consequences. And when one choice turns deadly for someone else close to him, he has to figure out what he's willing to do to save the people he loves. 'Read this one, reread it, and then hug it to your chest.' Becky Albertalli, bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Started this on audio from the library but ended up buying in print just because I thought I would like it better. The voice is great for audio! I just wanted to take certain beats at my own speed any maybe refer back. Unrelated: I really love the color scheme of this cover. It‘s almost like libraries can lead to sales coughMacmillancough (this is an HarperCollins title)

2019 Book 33: This YA remaking of the movie Groundhog Day is earning ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 from me. The level of cheesy lines from these teenagers was OFF the charts. Like almost gag-me-with-a-spoon cheesy. I did like the storyline‘s recurring events and second chances. Definitely a romance that my female students will enjoy more than my boys. A little surprised the author is a man. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I got this free for my birthday month from #bookofthemonth. It‘s pretty good so far although I think my students may be a little intimidated by its length.

I rarely bail on books, and maybe it's just not the right time for this book for me personally, but it's so mediocre and boring. I just got to the first time travel moment, and it didn't add anything for me. I think I'm letting this one go.

I feel so-so about this one. It was pretty funny and a sweet YA romance. The time travel got old for me by the end though.

4⭐⭐⭐⭐

mandi1082 This story was fun, interesting and funny. I loved the characters and the time travel aspect. I loved the supporting roles of the parents and abuela. This book makes you think what if you could go back In time and change the way things were. It showed how things still might not come out the way you hoped and thought it would. 5mo
mandi1082 Con... I felt the book was A little long and some of the parts felt cheesy. Like the whole babe or some of the cussing was not for me. Either way
4⭐⭐⭐⭐ from me.

A boy finds himself reliving the four months from when he met his girlfriend to when she died. Each time he tries to save her.

Unpopular opinion. I didn't love the book. First, the MC is telling the story to the reader, so there are a lot of fourth wall breaks. Secondly, it's too 2019- there is FAR too much slang and references that aren't going to mean anything in 10 years. And so redundant!

It wasn't bad, just not great. 😕

CONT...

GondorGirl I did like how all the characters were PoC, and that the girlfriend has Sickle Cell, which primarily effects African Americans (it make me google the disease, and I now know WAY more about it then I did, which is a huge win). And I liked how the MC's relationship with his friends and family was also altered by his decisions. 6mo

Literally decided to read this because my iPad was within reach and I didn‘t want to have to get up 😏 but sometimes being lazy has its rewards... I‘m reading an entirely delightful book which I probably would have otherwise completely forgotten that I‘d requested from the library (and it is annoying when the loan expires before I get to them)

Sweet love story told like Groundhog Day and Run Lola Run through several (five) recountings until the protagonist gets things right. I liked that it included friend group, not just love interest, discussions, and that the protagonist and almost everyone else in the story is a person of color. Very acceptable, thoughtful tale. 4⭐️: #WNDB #YA

This is a debut novel by the author and it is absolutely stunning. It is a story about love, friendship, family, and time-traveling, of course. What are the possibilities in front of you if you go back in time with a chance to alter the future? I had everything I want from a book – I laugh, I cry, got mad and annoyed. Liked it so much!
