  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    This is such a deeply cute book that I screamed for 300 hours. Theater romance ft. cute play tropes ft. great characters ft. being totally, utterly bingeable. Megan is the forgotten supporting character in her life, the Rosalind to everyone else’s Romeo and Juliet. Instead of romance, she focuses on directing theatre. But her plans quickly crumble when she’s cast as Juliet in her high school’s production - even though she's never acted befo...

    Am I crazy, or does the model on the cover look Chinese? Granted, we only see her back, but the only reason why I requested this book was because I was looking forward to a YA romance with an Asian heroine that would be more readable than Emergency Contact.Ah, to have expectations. Turns out, Megan is... not Asian. In hindsight, I should have known. Then again, we usually see what we want to see. Still, there is diversity… like, one black gay s...

    HEY. YOU. LOOK AT THIS COVER. DO YOU SEE HOW CUTE THIS COVER IS? LOOOOOOOK ATTTTTT ITTTTTT.okay, now that we've talked about the most important we allll know (because i cannot shut up about it), pretty much the only genre i read in the summertime is contemporary. like, don't get me wrong: i'm constantly reading contemporary. and constantly rating it really harshly. but that's a topic for another day. in the summer it's a whole new ball g...

    newly washed sheets. puppy cuddles. sunshine. freshly baked cookies. a hug from someone you love.if you took all those feelings and put them into book form, it would be this book. this book was so pure and wholesome and too good for this world. and lets take a moment to appreciate that this was written by two high school sweethearts?! how precious is that?? emily and austin were able to capture a cute contemporary romance that is reminiscent of n...

    hardcore skimming after 60% . . . . . im still at a loss for what the purpose of this book is?? dont get me wrong, i really appreciated the mc's outlook on herself and her relationships.shes not the 'im ugly but everyone things im pretty mary-sue' type protagonist. she's not ashamed of who she is and shes confident and yas girl own ittttt. that was really refreshing to see. but. . . . .i just don't understand why we need over 300 pages for no plo...

    Review posted on Fafa's Book Corner! Beware spoilers ahead!Trigger warning: Cheating, slut-shaming, mention of parental abandonment, mention of divorce, and aftereffects of divorce. Always Never Yours was really hard to miss. Back in December 2017 it was everywhere. I was pulled in because of the synopsis and cover. I am happy to say that I enjoyed it!Megan is always the girl before. Over her high school years she's come to terms with that. Aft...

    I know what it's like to watch the people you care about replace you and never look back. I've gone through it eight times now.To be frank, I bought this book only because it was written by a real-life couple. The idea of creating a novel with a loved one appealed to the romantic in me, and I wanted to see how two intimate people could integrate their unique voices into a single point of view. Since co-authored, YA contemporaries are typically he...

    “It started when I was eleven. I’d just proclaimed to Lucy Regis my undying love for Ryan Reynolds with the intention to marry him. The next day we found out he’d married Blake Lively.” Enter Megan Harper: The class flirt and go-to director for all things thespian at Stillmont High. Megan’s not your average boy-crazed senior though. I mean, yes, she’s kind of a horndog who’s constantly jumping from one relationship to the next, but ...

    This was so CUTE!! It was theatre-y, and romance-y, and sweet.I loved the characters! Megan (please tell me that was her name!) was a really likeable protagonist, but she was also quite flawed, so she felt real.Owen was great too! He was so sweet.And the ROMANCE! It was soooo cute, and I shipped it so hard!The side characters (and the side romance!!) were great too!Plus I always love reading about theatre!My ONE complaint was Megan's attitude tow...

    2 starsThis book wasn’t for me. The MC was irritating, and I didn’t agree with certain aspects of the story. At least the cover is adorable
  • Mila
    I think the main reason I enjoyed this book a lot is that it's not defined by its genre. Don't get me wrong, it is a very cute and wholesome YA romance; but I've also got from it a commentary on slut-shaming and other horrible tropes surrounding young girls. Our main heroine Megan has been in quite a few relationships and she's also known as the "flirty one" at her school. And it was interesting to see how people actually treated her and made ass...

    Think about something extremely soft, add some extra softness to it, and you get this book.“You’re irreplaceable. To your family, to your friends—to me.”I loved Megan. I think it’s important to acknowledge that sometimes, yes, she does things without thinking, but it doesn’t make her unloveable. I loved her because she’s so unique, she has a mind of her own, she’s extremely different from some of the characters I’m used to read ...

    My god could I have used a heroine like Megan growing up. A girl who knows her own mind and goes for what she wants. One who bravados her way through any situation she's not sure how to handle. Anyone else remember what it is to be equal parts brash and afraid? Willing to bet the ranch on a wink and a smile?Maybe that's just me.I love brazen girls and I love my heroines a little bit reckless. I also am partial to Megan because I think she and Lul...

    I read this book in one sitting. IT WAS INCREDIBLE! YOU SHOULD ALL READ THIS!
  • Chelsea
    I really like getting to see Megan and Owen as they were friends and see how they challenged each other to realize things about themselves. But holy hell is Megan so beyond childish. She abbreviates everything she does when she texts, flirts with any boy with legs that's a jock, and basically throws tantrums with her Dad over things she really should know to discuss since she's a senior in freaking high school. Overall I did enjoy the play aspect...

    I really, really enjoyed this book. Honestly, I checked it out at my library because of that stunning cover. It reminded me of TATBILB and my heart has been yearning for something sweet and swoony, so I figured this was the perfect read for me! Glad I wasn't wrong! :) "I'm not the girl in the center of the stage at the end of a love story. I'm the girl before, the girl guys date right before they find their true love." Let's talk characters becau...

    contemporaries have a way of surprising me. in which, i won't want to read one because i convince myself i hate the genre, but then i go and pick one up and, contrary to my belief, i end up really liking it.i finished always never yours at nearly 6 AM. (it would have been sooner if i didn't convince myself i needed to sleep.)i adored this book. i loved megan and i loved how she was never ashamed of being known as the class flirt, or being interes...

    WTF THIS WAS SO CUTEEasily one of the best contemporaries I've read this year. I don't know what to tell y'all, I just loved this a whole lot. I mean, I started this book at 10:30PM and finished it at 5:30AM. In one sitting. My questionable decisions speak for themselves. When you read a lot—and I mean a lot—of YA contemporaries, you quickly become able to tell if the contemporary you're reading is just another disappointingly average story o...
  • Kate Olson
    Thanks to @kidlitexhcange for this review copy!Theater + romance +friends + family = a totally refreshing YA story that made me realize just how unique it is to have a sexually empowered female lead who is not ashamed of her behavior (and shouldn't be, so GOOD!) in contemporary YA. Megan is known as the class flirt and tends to jump into the physical parts of relationships immediately since she figures the relationship won't last......just like a...

    ARC provided by Penguin Teen in exchange for an honest review.If you’re looking for a book that will make you happy, this is certainly the one for you. This is a fluffy romance that was filled with theatre and it was really cute. If you love Shakespeare then this is the book for you, because there are a ton of references here!Our story is about Megan. She is known as the class flirt at her high school. She is constantly jumping from one relatio...

    Always Never Yours!!! I'm just such a big fan of Emily Wibberley's The Last Oracle series, that I had to read her newest book, even though the genre was the complete opposite and she had a co author for this one. And I loved it. I truly loved this book and Megan's story. Summary: Megan Harper is the girl before. All her exes find their one true love right after dating her. It’s not a curse or anything, it’s just the way things are, and Mega...

    This book is fun, swoony, and absolutely charming! The main character has such a strong voice and was so much fun to read. What a delightful read!
  • Christy
    This was a super cute contemporary that I had a blast reading! It’s a perfect summer romance book if that’s what you’re looking for!
    Cute YA contemporary, which was just the sort of lighter read I was in the mood for. Quite enjoyed the theater aspects, as well as the LI (so adorable).
