Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid - BOOK REVIEW

Never Always Sometimes

Author: Adi Alsaid
Pages: 308 pages
Goodreads rating: 3.39 avg. rating

My rating: 3.5/5 stars

There was a lot of buzz around this book's release over on booktube and that's how I found out about it. It's about two best friends, Julia and Dave, who at the beginning of high school make a list of Nevers; high school cliches they would never do. Except as senior year rolls around and they have the idea to do every one of the Nevers before they graduate. 
It's your typical high school contemporary, I guess. Cute, fluffy, with just the right amount of self discovery. I liked it, this book was like a cute 80s John Hughes movie in book form. 
There were some parts that felt a little draggy and slow, which led me to not give it as high a rating as I would have liked. And I didn't get to really connect too well with the characters as much as I would've liked to. 
It's just a pretty darn cute book, I will give it that! I mean just look at that cover, you know it's going to be cute. If you're in a book hangover (as I was after reading The Book Thief *sigh*) this is a pretty good book to help you through it.
