If I had known earlier on what a magnificently scintillating joyride this book was going to be, I would’ve moved it right to the top of my to-read list MONTHS ago! Quite frankly, I’m flabbergasted that more people aren’t reading this book and raving about its awesomeness. So, okay, deep breath. This, my friends, is not just a simple must-read. It is a bucket list read. In fact, I forbid you from leaving this world before having read this book, understood? Yes? Good.*rearranging facial feat [...]

First off, I found it took me a little while to actually get 'into' this story. I think I was actually halfway through before I started to find it interesting I found myself lost in the over the top teenage dialogue, and things took a while to knit together in this plot.The characters, I have to admit, did not really impress me. The heroine actually bothered me, but then again, fashion-smart valley-girls have always gotten on my nerves. I can't complain about the historical figures portrayed, si [...]

только я подумала "надо что-то почитать про восстание боудикки", как бац - книга про восстание боудикки. магия, ясен пень.наверное, было бы лучше, если бы действие в настоящем хоть немного догоняло дейсвие в прошлом. потому что в прошлом боудикка успела благополучно восстать [...]

**Originally posted to: Bookish BlogOnce Every Never by Lesley Livingston is a fantastic, engaging and highly entertaining Young Adult novel for those who like adventure. Lesley’s smooth writing style is irresistible and incredibly impressive, I absolutely loved it. Clare (or Clarinet if you prefer) is pretty much your typical teenager girl, with a dose of sass. She’s a good student, although you wouldn’t call her a nerd. She might not be the most popular girl in town, but that’s perfect [...]

In a big YA mixing bowl, add one cup of Time-Travel, one cup of Celtic Mythology, one table spoon of smart-mouthed teenage girl and mix gently. Add a touch of amazing writing and there, you have the recipe for Once Every Never!Clare thinks of herself as average (and she hates that word) in a circle of amazingly smart and talented people. She finds herself set in exile in London for the summer after throwing a gigantic party at her place (and blames facebook). What a boring summer it will be, fol [...]

Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsOnce Every Never isn't my typical kind of read but I must say that I rather enjoyed this one! I used to read a lot of time travel fiction but since I started a paranormal blog I don't come across it as frequently. Another noteworthy tidbit is that Lesley Livingston is Canadian! I can't help but have a soft spot for canuck authors. There's also two scrumptious young men to drool over which definitely helps! I found this book to be imaginative, moving and it maintained a st [...]

The story begins with two girls spending the summer in London. The main character, Clare, is intelligent, but she kind of slacks off and is easily distracted, so she comes across as just a wee bit shallow. She is pretty grounded, but as soon as she sees one or two cute guys, she turns into a googly-eyed goof. Clare actually struck me as a calamity Jane kind of character - she's not a troublemaker, but trouble seems to find her anyway.I identified way more with her best friend Alice, who pretty m [...]

I've always wanted to read this but could never get around to it. till I saw this fresh never been cracked opened copy at the libraryClare was a bit annoying due to her overenthusiastic manners and dialogue. It's distracting to say the least. The story was interesting though, you just have to get pass the very teenager like talk. Story reminded me of a comic series that I really liked, one about time travel and living a life in ancient Egypt. I'm hoping this will get as interesting as that one i [...]

Good fun read and I think a 3.5 for me but had to round this one up. It was a little slow to start for me getting to know Clarinetor Clare and her good friend Allie as well as her Aunt Maggie who is a world famous professor of Archaeology. Aunt Maggie is special projects manager at the British Museum, and the girls will be spending the summer with her. "Al" is the brilliant one and Clare is certainly not dull but far from being interested in anything her Aunt is involved in. Al has a cousin, Mil [...]

It's a fun book with an interesting combination of fantasy and historical fiction. I had the privilege of seeing the author do a live reading from a passage of this book, and her enthusiasm won me over. She's a hilarious person! However, I had a number of issues with this book:- The dialogue: The main characters (Clare, Al, and Milo) talk to each other in a such an exaggerated, "hip" way that it gets grating. Think "Juno" but with lots of nerd references.- The Climax/Denouement: The last 80 or s [...]

2.5/3 stars, eking over to 3/5 stars. So maybe 2.7/5 stars.I enjoyed parts of this book. It was a fun read, and since I have absolutely no knowledge of Celtic history I couldn't become annoyed at the artistic liberties taken with the historical characters (of which I'm sure there were quite a few). The fantasy portion within the story's framework was logical. I liked the characters, especially the interaction between the two best friends. Their friendship felt so true and solid when I read it. I [...]

Definitely a book that I had high expectations for and it lived up to it (: A book with Druid and Celtic mythology + two cute guys (one in the past and one in the present) + time travelling + war + a cynical protagonist, in my opinion a winning formula.Clare is a protagonist I really liked, a smart girl with a rebellious streak in her,. It was entertaining seeing her interactions with Allie, her brainiac best friend and Allie's cousin, Milo. The historical aspect of the book was highly interesti [...]

Time travel and Celtic people and archeology and a splash, just a tiny one, of romance. A fascinating story about Clarinet, who goes by Clare, and her adventures in London after she gets shipped away from home (Toronto) for making some unwise choices when her parents were gone one weekend. (She stays with her aunt Magda aka Maggie while in London.) Her best pal, Al, convinces her parents to let her go too, so she can visit her cousin Milo. Al and Milo are both super genius'. Clare is on house ar [...]

Ugh. So much ugh in the very best of ways. So Jocelynn Drake was kind enough to let me have Gage Powell as my fictional husband. But Milo I need him too. I don't usually get all caught up in wanting fictional guys but those twoBUT he was in very little of the story. I read the entire thing in one day. I did not want to stop reading. It was riveting, funny and just a wild ride. I love wibbly wobbly timey whimey stuff and this very much fit the bill. Plus it's Lesley Livingston and I absolutely ad [...]

Once Every Never is a great read! I was a fan of Wondrous Strange and so was eager to read this. It started a little slow for me but once I got into it I found it hard to put down. I am partial to time travel books, and partial to stories set in Ancient Britain as well. This book had lots of Druidy goodness and back in modern times just enough geek/nerd culture to keep me chuckling. This was a very visual book for me, and I could totally see it as a movie.

A historical young adult romance novel filled with supernatural time travel - how much more could I ask for! From the very beginning when I started this book I could tell I was going to be hooked. Clary and her best gal pal Alice are a dynamic duo and their chemistry flows great with the supernatural twists thrown at both of them while visiting Clary’s curator aunt Magda in London, England. Alice or Al as Clary calls her is a mixture of nerd, brainiac and rationalist and Clary is the complete [...]

4/5.Positive: This was a really fun read! I'm a huge history nerd, especially for Roman and Celtic history (any kind of history actually), and this book was an excellent nerd-out for me. The plot was good, the time travel was well planned, and the writing was easy and enjoyable. I loved the parts that took place in Celtic Britain, it was really well researched and executed. Overall, I had fun with this, and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes history in their fiction.Negative: Some of the chara [...]

That was fun. I don't have much else to say. It was fun, light-hearted, clever but never extraordinarily any of the above. I enjoyed it on its own but it didn't instill me with a desire to either reread or go on with the series.

DNF a little after p.100, though I skimmed through to the end. Something about this just wasn't working for me just couldn't get into the characters or something. Feels a little on the young side for YA, but it's probably just a matter of taste.

Clarinet Reid has always felt a bit too average in a family full of extremely smart and dedicated people. But that all changes when she goes to visit her aunt over the summer with her best friend, Al. There, she goes to a museum and feels an intense and insane attraction to certain Celtic artifacts not yet on display. Despite the rules, Clare touches one and shimmers back several hundred years, to the time of the artifact. When she manages to get back to her own time, she realizes that it's not [...]

My review can also be found on Reading Lark: readinglark/2012/04.5 starsWith Once Every Never, I wasn't sure what to expect. I adored Lesley Livingston's Wondrous Strange series, so I had a pretty good feeling I'd like this new story well enough but Lesley pleasantly surprised me once again with a really entertaining read in Once Every Never.The main character, Clare, is a typical 16 year old from Toronto who likes makeup and shopping and boys. Clare is also short for Clarinet Reid -- a true pun [...]

Well, if you have the misfortune of living anywhere but Canada you're going to have a hard time getting your hands on Lesley Livingston's latest book, Once Every Never. Sadly it's currently only set for publishing from Penguin Canada on July 1st, with no news yet on any foreign rights.
