Sloth is here for this
Anyway, Sloth and I have been reading The Young Elites by Marie Lu (which is awesome) and we're about 60% through that; however, Sloth thought we should showcase our newest read, Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid, instead!
So far: We haven't actually started Never Always Sometimes yet (we're starting later today), but the concept sounds really fun. Amrutha actually read it right after BEA and she really enjoyed it, so we're hoping for the best.
Sneak peek: Normally on a
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—the ones who sit at the same lunch table every day, dissecting the drama from homeroom and plotting their campaigns for prom king and queen. They even wrote their own Never List of everything they vowed they'd never, ever do in high school.
Some of the rules have been easy to follow, like #5, never die 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. Dave has loved Julia for as long as he can remember.
Julia is beautiful, wild and impetuous. So when she 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.After reading the blurb again, Sloth is even more excited to start this! If you're intrigued by this blurb, Never Always Sometimes hits shelves on August 4th!
