    This book had no chance with me. Overwrought instalove + dying girl + wish fulfillment fantasy = ya tropes I've lost my interest in a very long time ago. ...

    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 reme...

    4.5 stars. Do you believe that there is one person out there for each of us? If so, should we do everything we can to find that person, and once we do, never let them go, no matter what it takes? Jack King has spent most of his life pining for his best friend, Jillian. (Come on, ...

    *3.75 DELIGHTFUL STARS* ?Don?t be afraid. Take chances. And when those don?t work out, take more.? Oh my gosh, I enjoyed the hell out of this! If you liked Before I Fall, you'll definitely like this one too! While Jack was a pretty annoying main character who kept ...

    I heard this was good, but I know the author (we hang out in the same coffee shops!!) so I don't think you should take my review seriously. I guess just read it? --UPDATE-- I stopped hanging out at the same coffee shops; he always beats me to the power outlet and then stays FOREVER...

    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 wit...

    ive always found time travel loops to be difficult to enjoy as a reader. they can be quite tedious, as you are experiencing the same situation over and over again. and if the writing isnt amazing, the repetitiveness gets really old, really quickly. and unfortunately, i think this story...

    "Don'tbe afraid. Take chances. And when thosedon't work out, take more" Rating:3.5/5 stars This book will make for an excellent movie one day, and I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we hear this will be turned into a movie shortly after the book is released. With that bein...

    3.5 ? This was cute. I wasn't entirely sure by the end (view spoiler)[ if Jack did manage to save Kate, but having mulled it over it seems like he did (hide spoiler)] Jack and Kate meet at a party and immediately hit it off, but about 3 months into their new relationship, Kat...

    ??.5 Stars "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....

    This is the blessing of being an only child : you have your parents' undivided attention. This is the curse of being an only child : you have your parents' undivided attention. This is not a little book (in fact this physical ARC weighed in at a chunky four hundred and forty nine p...

    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 ha...

    I have some very mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, parts of this contemporary were rather cute and the idea of a Groundhog Day "retelling" is really fun. But I'm not a fan of the execution, and I'm especially not a fan of how women were portrayed in this novel and just how in...

    Justin A. Reynolds adds a crisp, funny, witty and heartbreaking new voice to YA with Opposite of Always. His writing style is smooth, easy to read and addictive from page one. The characters he?s created are wonderfully human, personable and flawed and I found myself warming to them ...

    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 ...

    I?m sorry but, does this book really not have an average of at least 4 stars on here?? Are y?all okay?!? ?? I know I?m not a very picky reader but holy crap, this is truly one of the most brilliant debut novels I?ve ever had the pleasure of reading. ...

    Very charming but in the end it didn't wow me the way the first hundred pages had led me to believe it would. Don't get me wrong, it is a nice book but it does get a bit repetitive and I just found myself wanting to get to the end, which is not a good sign. It's just fun YA so maybe gi...

    More of a 2.5 stars, rounded up because I may not have been in the mood for a contemporary romance. It was honestly just O.K in my opinion. It had a very interesting premise and I am a sucker for Groundhog Day. The romance was nice but a little too cheesy for my cold dead heart. I li...

    I ended up DNF'ing this book. There were way too many issues with it. To begin with, the amount of typo errors within the first 50 pages of this book was crazy. This did not make the entire plot of the book (which was incredibly slow-paced) any better. The first 100 pages were mainl...

    I loved opposite of always so frigging much. It's amazing because Jack is so relatable Jack king , is dorky , cheesy , corny and nerdy . He literally regrets every decision he makes. It's so funny. As you might've guessed from the summary , we read a couple of choices jack ma...
