  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    This is such a deeply cute book that I screamed for 300 hours. Theater romance ft. cute play tropes and 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 before. And maybe also meets a ...

    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...

    “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 ...

    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...

    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
  • Aminah Safi
    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...
  • 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 read this book in one sitting. IT WAS INCREDIBLE! YOU SHOULD ALL READ THIS!
  • mith
    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...

    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...
  • 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...
    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).
  • Lisa (Remarkablylisa)
    MY RATING: 4/5 STARSI received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for a honest review. Always Never Yours tells the story of Megan Harper, a flirty and fun seventeen year-old who believes that everyone she dates will always end up leaving her and finding the true love of their lives. Of course, with this mentality, Megan rushes everything before her "time" is up. Readers can see Megan rush things. She's into flirting to making out to doing oth...

    First of all,I love the cover .3stars and a half.The story:I love the bits of humor in the story. I was afraid from the bunch of names at first. I needed more depth to the story after the first pages and nearly to the end of the first quarter of the story, I wasn't enjoying it but it became better after that.The family aspects here were so well represented. I have enjoyed this aspect.I needed more about Owen's family.The characters:Owen : he is t...

    4 starsI really enjoyed this! It was a cute & sweet contemporary, and Owen is such a babe! I sped through this book and definitely recommend, although I do wish there was a stronger emphasis on the familial portions of the novel.
  • 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!
  • Morgane
    4.5 starsA perfect, cute, deep contemporary for Spring.How could I not love it? To begin with, the characters are playing Romeo and Juliet for school ; this book already conquered my heart. I forgot how much I love theater.Then, there is the romance : a slow burning "friends to lovers" trope, and we all know I crave this kind of things.But the most amazing thing about this book was obviously the main character, Megan. The authors decided to go wi...

    I am just so glad i found out this book! It's been so long since the cute YA i had read, and i was desperately to find out another, well yeah finally here i am haven't moved on from the story! This book made me wanted to read other classics that used to be theatrical story, like Romeo and Juliet and still a lot there that had been mentioned in this book! Well yeah one of my favorite read so far for this month!
  • Rachel Solomon
    Absolutely ADORED this -- a perfect romantic comedy and a new favorite for sure. Weeping happy tears.
  • Isadora Gusmão
    3 stars, but oh what a painful 3 stars.This book really tested my patience. It ended up being a three stars book, however there were many times I was this close to DNFing. I had quite some problems with the entirety of this novel.First of all, the main character. Megan, for the first half of the book, is insufferable. I couldn’t stand her, and I sympathize with nearly every character ever written. She was very self-absorbed and boy-crazy in a l...
  • Jordan (pagetravels)
    SO THIS BOOK WAS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. It was so cute but not cheesy or predictable and was basically the ideal contemporary if you're looking for something on the fun/light side. I LOVED MEGAN. Like seriously I want her to be real so I can make her my best friend. I may not have related to her, but she was just such an awesome person; flawed, yes (which is a good thing!!) but all in all so so cool. AND OWEN. He was utterly adorable in his own ri...

    I really really liked this, it was cute and fun and so fluffy. It reminded me of Bad Romeo minus the bad boy.

    Another book I finished this week: ALWAYS NEVER YOURS by Austin Siegemund-Broka and Emily Wibberley. I've been intrigued by this book since I heard about it, and OBSESSED with that cover! Seriously, it's my perfect aesthetic—I could spend my whole life in cute little dresses with Peter Pan collars, wearing a messy bun and carrying carnations and peonies.So it was no surprise when I found myself completely unable to put the book itself down! Fun...
