Instagram Tour | Always Never Yours, a Sassy YA Contemporary Novel

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

Once in a while a charming new novel enters my bookworm headspace. One of the more recent novels to fall into this space is the new YA contemporary, Always Never Yours. As a fan of the contemporary genre (these are always my “happy place” reads) coupled with this cute cover, of course, this novel immediately caught my eye.

Today here on Finding Wonderland, we have the honor to help introduce this novel to the world as a part of a blog tour. The story is about a high school senior named Megan, whose history with dating is anything but “happily ever after.” You see every guy she dates falls madly in love… only it’s never with her. Right after she and her boyfriend break up, they find the person their meant to be with. The latest is Tyler, her ex, who is now dating her best friend. But Megan’s totally cool with this.

There’s plenty more I can say about this story, but since a review is coming to Finding Wonderland, I’ll stop here. 

Curious to know more? Julie Buxbaum says this novel is “funny, bold, unapologetic,” plus she says it features an “endearing heroine.” Morgan Matson says this novel is An utterly charming story of love, family, heartbreak, and drama. I absolutely loved it!” Here’s the official synopsis from Goodreads:

SYNOPSIS | 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 Megan refuses to waste time feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theatre, and fulfilling her dream school’s acting requirement in the smallest role possible. 

But her plans quickly crumble when she’s cast as none other than Juliet–yes, that Juliet–in her high school’s production. It’s a nightmare. No–a disaster. Megan’s not an actress and she’s certainly not a Juliet. Then she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright who agrees to help Megan catch the eye of a sexy stagehand in exchange for help writing his new script. 

Between rehearsals and contending with her divided family, Megan begins to notice Owen–thoughtful, unconventional, and utterly unlike her exes, and wonders: shouldn’t a girl get to play the lead in her own love story? – Goodreads
