Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. It features each blogger's most anticipated books. This week, my pick is Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill.
"Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.
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."
Why I Can't Wait: First off, the cover? LOVE! I love the vibrant colors, the London backdrop, I love it all! Secondly, how cute is that summary? I've always wanted to travel to London, so maybe I can live vicariously through the main character. Love doing that! Also, my very awesome and lucky friend Sarah has read an advanced copy and describes Meant To Be as having a Gilmore Girls feeling to it. Umm, win much? The fact that she loves it makes me believe I'll love it, too.
