Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill

Amazon / Goodreads

Overachiever and straight A Junior, Julia is the perfect student. She always follows the rules, always has pencils and a sharpener, and always keeps a pocket Shakespeare on hand. Julia dreams of one day spending her life with her "MTB" (meant to be) childhood crush, Mark.  During a spring break school trip to London, Julia is partnered with the wild class clown, Jason.  Julia decides to cut-loose and become a little adventurous. Little does Julia know that the thing she least expected could just be her meant to be.

Oh how I LOVED THIS BOOOOOK!!! Meant to be was so entertaining. I absolutely love Lauren Morrill's writing style and sense of humor. The characters were fantastic, Julia totally reminded me of myself in high school (except for the good grades part :/ ) in fact she reminds me of myself now, I have a huge but cute pen and pencil collection on my desk at work.  Whenever I'm out and about and see a cute pen or pencil with a snazzy eraser, I just have to buy it to add it to my collection, I'm even so obsessed about it that I lock them in my desk when I leave for the day. The romance was spot on, while I sort of did predict the outcome it definitely kept my interest anyways. I enjoyed every word of this book, and HIGHLY recommend!!

5 out of 5 stars I can't wait to read more from Lauren Morrill!

Taking a break from my blog life..

Hi everyone.  As some of you know I am planning on getting gastric bypass surgery. Well, Im on my 3rd month of attempting to lose 70lbs and I am finally meeting with the surgeon next week. Due to this and other personal issues, I have decided to but my blog on a "medical leave" for the next few months.  I regret to inform this to any authors or blog tours that I have signed up for that I will not be able to post reviews in a timely manner, however, I will post the reviews as soon as I feel up to it.  I have too much going on in my life and need to focus on my health first. I love book blogging and will return to post every now and then but only if I feel up to it.  I hope to be back and ready to blog as soon as possible.

Take care everyone!

I really enjoyed Thought I Knew You. This had the perfect blend of suspense and mystery. Thought I Knew You is definitely a unpredictable page turner! The was wonderfully written and had great characters.   I recommend Thought I Knew You to mature readers.
