Waiting on Wednesday (6) - Meant to Be

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Title: Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
Release Date: November 13th, 2012
Page Count: 256
Summary: It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be").But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love. Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be

I'm definitely a genre girl. I enjoy the occasional contemporary read, but it has to really stand out for me to want to read it, and it has to be extra special for me to be this excited about it pre-release. From the moment I saw that absolutely gorgeous cover and that truly adorable premise, I was beyond smitten. Meant To Be seems like one of those rare contemporary gems that I could never pass up. I can't wait to pick this one up and fall in love with the story.

So...what book made your WoW this week? Link us in the comment <3


  1. I'm not sure I'm up for reading a clean romance novel. The book sounds pretty good but I love my paranormal creatures lurking around... I might give it a try at some point but in the meantime I hope you like it when you get the chance to read it.

  2. Haven't heard of this but I don't go for contemps. Still hope you love it!

About Us

Once upon a time, there were two sisters -Susan and Shauna - who were moved and mesmerized by stories through any medium, since they were teeny tiny. This passion stayed with them throughout adulthood, and after becoming even more enthralled with Young Adult fiction in recent times (and some Adult & MG!) they decided they just had to open up their own book blog and share their enthusiasm with the world, or well, to anyone who would listen.
