His freckles, grin, and jump into life attitude made me smile and laugh.
The trouble that boy could create! But then he would turn around and do the sweetest thing.
I want to say more, but really you just have to experience the chemistry, warmth, and surprises for yourself. Both Jason and London offer a world of surprises. London came alive on the pages in pubs, tourist attractions, and weather. London has always been on my list of must get to cities. This book made me want to jump on a jet plane. Right now!
I just enjoyed the back and forth jabs, ease, and flirting between Jason and Julia as they explored London. Hope you meet Jason and Julia soon. This book. If you know me at all, you know I was once — okay, am still — very skeptical of contemporary novels. But Meant to Be was even This book.
But Meant to Be was even better…it surpassed my wildest expectations and then some! I identified with this book on a level I never thought possible. I was transported to London, walking the streets with my classmates, taking in the culture and the people. I really want it to be now.
It was just so cute and quirky and full of awkward that I need to make it real and commit those moments to memory. He moved away and only recently moved back to town and is attending her high school. And man, is Julia crushing hard. She may be book-smart, but poor Julia has got a lot to learn. So they have tons of little adventures in London because this guy is not going to let Julia off the hook. She is super up-tight and needs to let loose, and Jason is just the guy to show her how.
Julia is a very reluctant pupil, though, and hijinks ensue. Trust me…. I knew where it was going from the onset but the ride was sooo much fun! And in the end, that's all that matters, right?
The story is seriously that much fun. Favorite quote: Then get me caught in a street brawl, where I lose all my stuff including my pocket Shakespeare. Actually, I do have one of those. But I left it back in Newton, thankyouverymuch. This review can also be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.
Nov 04, Kelsey Miller rated it it was amazing. Oh, man. So cute. I read this in one sitting well, really I was on my bed. I genuinely cannot see why someone would not like this book. I very much approved.
Anyway, what I really loved about this book i Oh, man. Anyway, what I really loved about this book is the humor. Our heroine, Julia, is sitting in her airplane seat going on about all the different things she hates which include gum-wielding children, planes, and Jason Lippincott.
Oh yeah. That reminds me. Julia But she swims! She certainly has insight into showing emotion without, like, telling it. Julia was a pretty cool character. And the thing I really liked about Julia was that she was aware of her flaws and actually tried to do something about it—most of the time anyway.
And Jason was adorable. At all. At first it was amusing but then it just got annoying. Act like a decent human being. She would just go from one guy to the next, practically on whimsy. And I also wished she would have stood up for herself more when she wanted to see certain sights, especially since some of them had personal meaning for her.
But characters would be boring and unrealistic if they were perfect, so I think these flaws work for the plot. And the ending was cute and funny, and ultimately satisfying. I really recommend that you read it!
This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea's Bookshelf. I have wanted to read Meant To Be ever since I saw this beautiful cover I'm a sucker for pretty covers, but then, who isn't?
The second reason why I really wanted to read this book was the setting. London is my favorite city in the world, and every book that is happening there will be in my hands eventually. The third reason why I wanted to read Meant To Be is because it just seemed like a perfect cute read.
You get that feeling where This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea's Bookshelf. You get that feeling where you just have to read the book! Something was telling me that I'm going to enjoy this one. Dad was right.
Screw Paris; London is the city for me. Julia and her classmates are going on a school trip to London, but Julia's best friend and friends from her swimming team weren't able to come which leaves Julia with people she doesn't particularly hang out with.
To make the trip even worse, she gets paired up with Jason, a guy who is the total opposite from her. While she is a stuck-up-goody-two-shoes, Jason is relaxed and he does what he wants, whenever he wants.
Which also means, regularly rules breaking. The week they spent in London together was so cute! I loved reading about their interactions, their adventures and the time they spent together.
You could see that they liked each other, but Julia was oblivious to that. In her mind, she only saw Mark, her childhood friend, her MTB meant to be. I was so anxious for the moment when she finally realizes how awesome Jason is, and what a douche Mark is this is not really a spoiler.
Another thing why I liked this book so much is the similarities I have with it. I also went on a school trip with my classmates to London, and we did the exact same things they did! Lauren described all those things so vividly, that even if you never actually were there, you got that the feeling that you were there, and for me, it was like reliving one of the best memories I have. When I finally finished the book, I was grinning for the next few hours. I just couldn't stop.
That ending was just too cute! Lauren Morrill definitely got on my list of authors whose books I read no matter what. I can't wait to read Being Sloane Jacobs and to see what her future works will be like! Blog Twitter Facebook Instagram Pinterest It's been a long time since last time I wrote review. Work, stress and, honestly, I've been into different kind of books since last summer. Well, it looks like I am again in sweet young adult novels phase. And what great book to start with.
Meant to Be goes in my special category - summer books. Light, fun reads about summer, road-trips, unexpected love, testing friendships and growing up. Books that make me think about warm nights spent outside with friends, ice-cream and chips we used to eat, boys on bikes and skates I don't ride, but I had this really soft spot for boys that do - one of them being my man , shorts and flip-flops, highlights in my hair I know, that was Paris, The City of Love, but you might change your mind after you read this.
I've noticed that some readers didn't like Julia that much, but I think she is something different. Maybe that's just my inner adult-romance-for-the-last-six-months reader, maybe I would find reason to rant about her if I read this book just few days ago when I was in weird book funk, but now I can say just this - Julia is great girl. One of the reasons why I think that? No, it's not because I'm teacher. I had similar introduction to his plays like Julia and I've spend good part of my teen years obsessing over them.
Until this day no one in my family knows for sure how that book ended on our bookshelf. I'll just go with the flow and say It was meant to be.: Jason and Julia have this perfect chemistry, at first it looks like they have nothing in common, but just wait. Jason will make you fall on your knees and make silly, googly eyes. Scene in the skate park, in his room and there is one part that made me laugh so hard because it reminded me of all kinky books I've read. Don't waste your time and go find this book and read it.
If you did read it, find it and re-read your favorite parts. Meant to Be deserves big, shiny five stars. Nov 20, Romie rated it really liked it Shelves: Two years later, and I still love this book. I like Julia, she's strong, knows what she wants in life, and is not afraid to speak her mind.
She's in love with the idea of love itself, she has this perfect man in her mind and she's prepared to do anything to find her MTB. Of course there were moments she was - just like Jason said - a pain in the ass, because she just doesn't know where to stop.
She's hurting people with her know-it-all attitude, and she's not even aware of it. But her time in Lon Two years later, and I still love this book. But her time in London helps her to realize that something or someone can be right for her without being utterly perfect. I love Jason, he's the reason I'm rereading this book, clearly. He appears like a total jerk at the beginning of the book because he doesn't take anything seriously, but the more you read the more you realize he's not being a jerk, he's just trying to make Julia smiles, he wants her to enjoy her time in London and have some fun.
He's trying his best to make the girl he has a crush on being happy. And he's nailing it. So what if he doesn't believe in MTB? So what? He believes in the moment, he believes in falling in love with people that make him a better person.
This guy is seriously amazing.
I really enjoyed my reread, it made me feel happy and warm inside, and it was just what I needed: Apr 11, Frankie Lovely rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I had only a few complaints that I will chronicle in a full review soon, but for the most part this book w 4 stars Review to come This book was adorable! She's the perfect student and he's a troublemaker.
It's not meant to be, or is it? I've got to say I'm a little unsure about the rating. It's a sweet story with a nice, hopeful message for all the romantic girls out there but when your female MC annoys the bejeezus out of you, the sweet story turns into something painful. The good: Jason's childish attitude.
The guy was a complete m 2. The guy was a complete mess and I loved it. There're just a few things more attractive than a guy talking about something he's passionate about. Add a guy who can sing and I'm all his. The bad: At one third of the book I already knew that view spoiler [they had switched phones, it was pretty obvious. And that leads me to my second problem: This chick was incredible judgmental.
She kept mumbling about how shallow everyone was, looking down on her female classmates. I get it, people can be really mean with you sometimes, specially in high school. However, she was nothing but self-involved, thinking she was better than others just because she enjoyed reading more than shopping.
She even complained about reading on a kindle! It's the first book I've ever seen her read. Oh, please. Cut it out with the snobby act. She's a shinning start, isn't she? Nicely put, she's a pain in the ass and I've got no idea what Jason saw in her to begin with. Actually, he called her on this issue a few times but I didn't see any act of redemption from her despite several fights.
The inconstancy in their relationship was so confusing. They fought and the next thing you know, they were hanging out like besties again.
And finally, the resolution felt rather contrived. Julia accepted everything like it wasn't such a big deal. The twist [gasp] was not a twist at all and the sit-com feel was a little disappointing. However, it was a nice, sweet story and I've seen other readers enjoy this very much so maybe it's just me. View 1 comment. Love isn't perfect or predictable. Julia Lichtenstein has an educational trip to London. She's known as a nerd, disciplined and obedient. Then, she's partnered to a guy she hates the most in class, Jason Lippincott.
He's cocky, sarcastic, rule breaker and a funny guy. Definitely opposite to Julia's personality and it gets on her nerves. Sometimes it's fun to break some rules. Jason wants Julia to have fun.
To escape all those nerdy, stressful things. They Love isn't perfect or predictable. They broke some rules by sneaking out to the bar late at night and party all night. Afterwards, Julia starts receiving texts from a guy named Chris. Is Chris her soul mate? This book is simply adorable. It's sweet, romantic, funny and fast-paced. I finished it in one sitting on a rainy afternoon till midnight. The characters are lovable and I adore their embarrassing moments, and adventures in London.
The writing style is great and made me instantly hooked. I am interested on reading Lauren Morrill's other books. I have absolutely no idea WHY so many people like this book! Here is an annoying, but true, encapsulation of my feelings for this book: Ooooh, pretty cover, decent ratings, and a cool blurb! Sounds fun! I should definitely get this! Think twice, bitch, do you really want me?
Hahaha, no, I'm gonna get you! Yay, I'm totally ready to love this! Umm, okay How can you fall in love with someone when you're 6? And even if you somehow do, how are you not over him when you haven't seen him in 10 years?
But the super-adorable main guy still hasn't come! Maybe it'll get better! Hi, I'm Jason Lippincot and I'm an absolute asshole! Maybe not. But maybe he changes! Maybe something happens! Errr, okay. This can't get any worse though, right? Aww really?
