Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds

Publication Date: March 12th, 2019

Goodreads Summary
Jack Ellison King. King of Almost.

He almost made valedictorian.

He almost made varsity.

He almost got the girl . . .

When Jack and Kate meet at a party, bonding until sunrise over their mutual love of Froot Loops and their favorite flicks, Jack knows he’s falling—hard. Soon she’s meeting his best friends, Jillian and Franny, and Kate wins them over as easily as she did Jack. Jack’s curse of almost is finally over.

But this love story is . . . complicated. It is an almost happily ever after. Because 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. Beautiful, radiant Kate. 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—and let go—to save the people he loves.


Admittedly, the book cover grabbed me first, but I do love the concept of this book. It makes me think of Groundhog Day, but the Supernatural version where Dean dies and Sam does everything he can to stop it. It’s scenario’s like these that always drive home the hard truths. Losing someone you love is never easy, but would what would you do if their survival brought about more despair? This is a book that will undoubtedly drive home some hard truths, and highlight the importance of letting go. 

What’s your most anticipated book?
