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!

Special Thanks to Random House Children's Books and NetGalley for providing me an e-galley in exchange for an honest review.  This is going to my "Must buy in Hard/Paper back wish list!"
