Meant To Be by Lauren Morrill

A girl with it all planned out discovers a romance she never expected in this funny debut about a class trip to London that says you’ll love “if you’re into swoony romances with a little bit of history thrown in.” 

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.

Rating: 1/5

How can I say what I think about this book?

Ok that pretty much suffices, though It’s a bit short on curse words… but if I write them all down this will turn into a ten pages review and I want to get “Meant to be” out of my system as soon as possible.

You guys know, I usually try to find a redeeming quality in all books. If somebody put the effort to write down their ideas; and let’s face it, writing a book, revising it, re-writing it again, editing and all that jazz is no easy task, I want to see the whatever little piece of goodness there is in the written word.

I have no fucks to give with this one, guys. It was terrible.

I wasn’t really expecting much besides a fun and fluffy romance between two “enemies” in the wonderful London!... And I got stuck with this.

I’m going to make it short and say, right now, why I hate it so much.
-     -The MC sucked balls. She was an awful person, not only was everybody inferior to her in one way or another, she was also dumb, shallow and a hypocrite. She judged people who read from a Kindle rather than a paperback because that “Wasn’t really reading” are you fucking serious?
-      -The Love Interest was a childish asshole. Not only does he spends the entire trip humiliating our MC to the point of almost crying (Hell, I would have cried too, after I had strangled him.) He also tries to take her clothes without her consent and laughs it off as her being “too much of a prude”, tricks her into going to a party and leaves her all alone in a club after she’s completely drunk and strange dudes start swarming around her. Fuck him.
              -Every girl is portrayed as dumb as fuck, all to make our MC all the more smart! Wohooooo!
-     -No plot, nothing happens.

-          -Zero research into London, and it’s freaking London!

-         - It was freaking horrible.


  1. I need to read this! I love when people don't like a book xD makes me want to read it and see if my opinion is similar or not

    1. Lol, I'm the same! What happens when you do, do you usually like them? For me it depends, sometimes I see things in the review that make me wonder if we read the same book, others i regret deciding to read the book in the first place hahahh
