“Don’t be afraid. Take chances. And when those don’t work out, take more”

An unputdownable diverse book beautifully written with wit, friendship and time travel.  

This book was incredible. The writing was simple, beautiful and easy to read. I devoured this book. The characters were amazing and the journey we follow with Kate and Jack is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. I have so much emotions. The story follows Jack who meets a girl, Kate. They connect instantly and then Kate dies. Jack is then thrown into a loop and given the opportunity to save Kate again. Every time something goes amiss. This book isn’t your usual love story, it’s about learning the consequences of your actions, it’s about family and so many different things.

There is love, friendship and time travel. I have never read a book like this and I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it but let me tell you, I absolutely loved it. It was so addicting and I was literally on edge with every loop, not knowing what will change and what will change this time.

I loved all the characters, I loved the side characters (Franny and Jillian) and I loved Jack’s parents but mostly I loved Jack King. Jack King is my favourite character. Someone give me a Jack. He is sweet and caring and just AMAZING.

I loved the friendship, the wit and banter, the side characters were so fun to read about, I laughed and grinned. The book was witty and heartfelt. A must read, add it to your TBR guys, you don’t want to miss this one.

Towards the end, it felt a bit repetitive but I loved every thing about this book, the unique storyline, the side characters and the life lessons.

 My rating: ★★★★
