Like Never and Always Reviews
As always, thank you the publisher and to Netgalley for the reading copy in exchange for an honest review.
My feelings about this book are really confusing to me. For the first 15% or so, I was really bored and absolutely terrified that this was going to resemble I Was A Bitch because it really seemed headed in that direction. You've got the car accident, the confused identity, the god forsaken brother love triangle... and I was not happy about all of this. Whatsoever.
But, I'll give ...more

If you follow my reviews, you’ll know I’m not big on romance. Do I hate love? No. But I find that too many YA books (which I adore and read almost exclusively) rush couples to the po ...more

In the history of real mistaken identity cases, the one about the fatal accident involving two girls and one survivor is probably the most heartbreaking. Most of us have probably heard about the incident or seen the story or some variation resembling it in popular media, but in Ann Aguirre’s new YA thriller Like Never and Always, the scenario is given a disturbing and paranormal twist.

I feel very MEH about this book. I could understand Liv's confusion, as she reexamines who she is in Morgan's body, and has to reconcile that with this new life of hers. So the fact that her relationships with people are complicated, it makes sense. But I just was SO annoyed by the love triangle. It completely took me out the story at multiple points, and I wish I could've gotten into the romance. Clay was the actual best. But I just did not really care ...more

If you woke up in side your best friend's body, would you be able to live her life the way she did? Do you really want to know THAT much about her and how do you cope with your new situation???
What an interesting concept. With elements of paranormal, this somewhat suspenseful story is less thriller and more contemporary mystery in my opinion. Through Liv, we get to learn more about Morgan and what's really going on in her life. How being a "rich little girl" may not be all it's cracked up to be. ...more
Like Never and Always was a strange story - quite compelling in some aspects, and just strange in others. Full review to come.
3.5 star - ARC review.

Ann Aguirre's Like Never and Always is a dark, romantic, Young Adult suspense novel edged with a bit of paranormal. There's plenty of angst for those who love that sort of thing, mixed with layered secrets, a screwy love triangle, and the underlying story about how well we really know the person we claim to know best. The plot centers on a supernatural soul-switching/body-switching theme achieved ...more
