For those of you who don't know, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where book bloggers devote a post to an upcoming book release they are particularly looking forward to.
THIS WEEK'S PICK:
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 done 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 love a good contemporary book and if it's a romance it's just that much better. And if it takes place in London, just sign me up. This book sounds like exactly what I will be needing on a dreary November day. I'm really looking forward to seeing if Meant to Be will be as good as the summary makes it sound and I look forward to discovering Lauren Morrill's writing. November can't come soon enough!
Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill will be published November 13, 2012 by Delacorte.
