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

May 15, 2018 No Comments

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
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

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
