Never Always Sometimes- Book Review

Summary and book info at the end of the post.


Hi guys,

I have been on a reading frenzy lately, and as soon as I want to write another book review, I’m on the next book!

This book reminded me so much of the movie: Naomi and Ely’s No Kiss List, even though the plot is vaguely different than this book.

While reading this book, I felt:


Sorrow (very light though)

and Adventurous

The author’s writing style really stood out to me. The words were very descriptive and described each and every move of the characters, what they were thinking through touch (if that makes sense). That’s probably what set this book apart from the other adventurous, high school type books; don’t get me wrong, the plot is unique itself, but the style added so much more.

The plot twists were not as predictable since many different books have similar twists like in this book, but with the main characters being very close friends (and in their own bubble) for five years, you can’t help but wonder what will happen next. I don’t want to give away a lot of spoilers, so I’m vaguely describing the details of the book.

I live in the Bay Area, coincidentally where the book was set in, so I guess I related a bit more to this book than ones set in the Midwest or towards the east coast.

I think that this book is great for road trips and flights, as it is short and has a happy ending to it (well sort of).

And that concludes this post!

91qkjapvdxlNever Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid

Published in 2016

Price: $6.58 (paperback) from Amazon





Never date your best friend. Always be original. Sometimes rules are meant to be broken. 

Best friends Dave and Julia were determined to never be cliché high school kids. They even wrote their own Never List of everything they vowed they’d never, ever do in high school. Most of the rules have been easy to follow, like #5, never dye your hair a color of the rainbow, or #7, never hook up with a teacher. 

But Dave has a secret: he’s broken rule #8, never pine silently after someone for the entirety of high school. It’s either that or break rule #10, never date your best friend. So when Julia impetuously suggests they do every Never on the list, Dave is happy to play along. He even dyes his hair an unfortunate shade of green. It starts as a joke, but then a funny thing happens: Dave and Julia discover that by skipping the clichés, they’ve actually been missing out on high school. And maybe even on love.
