Waiting On Wednesday [@asiegemundbroka @wibbs_ink @puffinbooks]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:

ALWAYS NEVER YOURS by Emily Wibberley & Austin Siegemund-Broka

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?

My reasoning for this one's pretty simple: it sounds cute and fun. Plus, I don't thin  I have read an YA contemporary romance lately, I have been reading a lot more fantasy and scifi and  darker books lately; the change of pace (and tone) sounds appealing.

(Also: Emily Wibberley's Goodreads bio mentions Buffy, so . . .)

That's my pick for this week, what's yours? Tell me in the comments and/or link me to your own post!
