Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka. It is a YA contemporary that sounds like a fun read for spring.
Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and have yet to read. It is a spin-off of the original meme, Waiting on Wednesday that was formerly hosted by Breaking the Spine.
THIS WEEK’S BOOK:Title: Always Never Yours
Author: Emily Wibberley, Austin Siegemund-Broka
Publication Date: May 22nd 2018
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?
I have been loving all the light, fluffy contemporaries lately. There is something about the theme of acting and the theatre that really draws me into reading a book. It will be interesting to see how this book plays out, and if the co-authored story works well.
