VeganYANerds - I’m glad you loved this, Magan! I have wanted to read it ever since I first saw the cover and now I can’t wait for it to be published!

October 16, 2012 - 11:36 am

Magan - Same here, Lori! Me either — write more Lauren! We need it!

October 16, 2012 - 11:36 am

Magan - Aww, Tara — that makes me so happy to know. I wish I got to know (meet) more authors in person. I love that you shared this! Thank you!

October 16, 2012 - 11:35 am

Magan - Thanks, Brittany! Put the release date on your calendar! Be ready! 🙂

October 16, 2012 - 11:35 am

Magan - Julia did make some pretty abrupt decisions sometimes and I was all, “WHAT DO YOU WANT?” but mostly I hoped she would make the right decision. There was something about Jason that I found endearing. I saw through his silliness and wanted the good boy to be seen. I’m sorry your heart was confused, Jen! 🙂

October 16, 2012 - 11:32 am

Magan - Alexa, I cannot tell you how badly I wanted to leave to London while I was reading Meant to Be! I wanted to sightsee and explore. Ahh! YES – you do need this!

October 16, 2012 - 11:31 am

Magan - Keertana – it’s a really great story that will have you flipping through the pages for more of Jason’s crazy antics and trying to figure out who in the heck she ends up with! 🙂 Hope you enjoy!

October 15, 2012 - 5:08 pm

Keertana @ Ivy Book Bindings - I am SO glad you enjoyed this one! I’ve been looking forward to it ever since the cover was revealed and I haven’t read a good Contemporary YA Romance in a looong time, so I can’t WAIT for this one to release! Fantastic review!(:

October 15, 2012 - 2:13 pm

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Any book that’s set in LONDON is already a book I want to read. I love that they sound like such an unlikely pair, and that too makes me really excited to read this. I NEED IT.

October 15, 2012 - 1:00 pm

jen - see… i liked this book and i didn’t. the immaturity level was through the roof with some characters. i loved julia’s nerdliness, but all i could think of was “seriously. if it ends up being jason, i’m gonna smack this girl.” because he got on my nerves THAT BADLY. though i did read it in one sitting, so that says something. THIS BOOK CONFUSED MY HEART.

October 15, 2012 - 10:26 am

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - This book looks SO GOOD. I cannot wait to read it!! Great review. It definitely makes me want to read it even more now 🙂

October 15, 2012 - 9:39 am

Tara - I can’t wait to read this one! I met Lauren in a book signing line at BEA and she is just the sweetest person ever.

October 15, 2012 - 7:23 am

Lori - Yes! I loved it so much. Julia and Jason were so great and very unique. I can’t wait to read more from Lauren in the future.

April @ Books And Wine - I agree, the travel aspect was absolutely stunning! Didn’t you just want to pack your things and leave for the unknown while reading? I certainly did.

And Rowan. *sigh* So dreamy!

February 7, 2012 - 11:44 am

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I’m very excited to read this! I got it on Netgalley, but have been reading all the other books due out before it first. I have one book left after the one I’m reading, and I can’t wait! You make it sound amazing, and I’m sure I’ll love it as much as you do!

February 6, 2012 - 8:16 pm

VeganYANerds - I haven’t read any of Kirsten’s books but this is one I definitely want to get my hands on and sooon!

I really enjoyed your review, Magan.


February 6, 2012 - 4:15 pm

Jess @ Gone with the Words - I plan to be reading this VERY soon! Awesome review, Magan!! I’m even more excited for it now!

February 6, 2012 - 3:45 pm

Ginger @ GReads! - Oh this book! It’s still on the tip of my tongue & I am not quite ready to swallow it whole yet. I just want to savor each & every moment from it. I adored the travel aspect of the story so much. A writer after my own heart! hehe The slow build between Bria & Rowan was perfect, in my opinion. And that character growth of Bria’s? Wow. Superb! Excellent, excellent review M 🙂

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I read and reviewed this novel a while back – and like you, I was completely in love with it. Any story that focuses on personal growth and includes traveling to exotic places in it is definitely a winner in my book!
