Waiting on Wednesday #54


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

Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill
Publisher: Delacorte
Expected Publication: November 13th, 2012
Pages: 290
Goodreads Summary:
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.

Doesn't this sound like the cutest and most awesome contemporary of this year?! Loooove the sound of it, looove the cover and can't wait to get my greedy little hands on a pretty, shiny copy of this. Is it November yet?

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  10. I rarely read contemporary because those are the types of books that really hit home and sometimes they are just too deep for my taste, but the ones I do pick up are so so wonderful! This one sounds like an amazing one! It does sounds like a cute read and I definitely added this on GR. I cannot resist! Oh, and that cover just POPS! lol!
    Awesome pick! :) Thanks for sharing this one <3
