Opposite of Always Reviews
This story was a delight.
It’s a debut novel on love, friendship, time-travel and what you would do if you had the power to go back and alter the future in some way.
I loved the loop we were thrown in. I wasn’t sure whether it would work for me, but it worked. It was addictive and kept me on edge as the constant changes that occurred due to him wanting to change the future, added different elements and layers to the story and to the wonderful cast of characters.
And I love what that portrayed ov ...more
Sometimes you see a cover of a book and you know instantly that you have to read it. I definitely had that excited feeling and completed this book within a few hours as I couldn’t put it down!!
Jack King meets Kate at a party and within seconds they are laughing away as if they had known each other for years. He wants to spend every minute possible with her. Kate feels the same way but tries to resist.
Jack and Kate’s relationship flourishes but sadly Jack finds out that Kate’s life may be short a ...more
I'm not crying. You're crying...
Okay. I admit it. I'm a giant sap underneath all the layers of cynicism. THIS BOOK GOD DAMN IT! So freaking cute and just... It's basically Groundhog Day which is one of my all time favourite films... THEN PUT YOUR LITTLE HAND IN MINE.... Anyone remember that?? Nope?? Just me... Anyway this book. YA. CUTE. FUNNY. ROMANTIC. WITTY. DID I MENTION CUTE??? I loved it. Gave me all of the feels. And also I appreciate the nod to Zinc Finger Nucleases. Can't have CRISPR st ...more
"But i only see Kate. I only feel Kate"
It's easy to think that Opposite of Always brings something refreshingly new to the YA scene, unfortunately it doesn't quite manage to shake the curse of most YA books - an annoying insistence on championing love at all cost.
📌Plot - So this book focuses on Jack King. We're made to understand that he's tried a couple of things and hasn't really stuck with them. At this point i'd like to point out that the character is 18 or 19 so i can't honestly s
Opposite of Always is a heartfelt and stunning debut; that is worthy of all praise.
I am in love with this book; its story, and the way it made me feel.
Jack is a boy in love with a girl, that keeps dying—over and over again.
Most importantly, he’s a black boy in love with a black girl—and the importance of that is immeasurable.
Every death is an opportunity to fall in love with Kate again. It's a chance to right wrongs, fix relationships—and to do things differently. But what happens when you star ...more
More YA with POC narrators! Especially black young men, please and thank you! It’s vitally important that our going men see themselves in a book, especially in books that celebrate love and comedy and friendship! Books that offer hope and not make everything tragic or despairing!
I’m glad that Jack’s parents were happy and in love, too. It was beautiful to see black love so well represented.
Plus, this cover is radiant!
Yo I REALLY enjoyed this!! this was the perfect fun, fast-paced YA contemporary I needed to get out of my little funk after the Astro concert (plus the addition of senioritis lol) that was turning into a reading slump.
This has my FAVORITE trope in it - reliving the same time period over and over and over again.
I loved our characters - though, it was pretty weird having the love interest have your name lol (it felt very "y/n" fanfiction to be honest)
I love the fact that parents - whether ...more
