Waiting on Wednesday: Meant to Be

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to read!
My pick is Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill!

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.

My thoughts:

Wow.  I absolutely need to read this book.  It's been on my to-read shelf on Goodreads for a few months now, and I wish it would just hurry up and come out!  November 13 is simply too far away.

First off...the cover.  I confess: I'm the type of person who tends to judge a book by its cover, and this one is definitely worth freaking out over.  I love the bright colors!  It really sticks out from most other covers.

And the summary...ah, it sounds so good.  And they go to London!  How perfect is that?!  This just sounds like a totally cute, laugh-out-loud funny story.  I can't wait to read it!  I know I'll be buying it the day it comes out.

So what book are you waiting on this week?  Leave a link to your WOW in the comments!
