Release Date: January 2nd
Genre: Anthology, Short Stories, Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary
Whether or not you believe in fate, or luck, or love at first sight, every romance has to start somewhere. MEET CUTE is an anthology of original short stories featuring tales of "How they first met" from some of today's most popular YA authors.
Super cute and nice to read, no matter if you read it from start to finish or want to take each story on individually, for everyone that loves romance a MUST
More detailed thoughts:
One thing is sure this book is cute
Yes i went there!
But it fits!
Its a very nice compilation of short stories from a great mixture of authors! Its actually one of the best anthologies i have read so far -not that i have read a huge amount as of yet but i am getting there!
Still this is one of the best ones!
The stories themselves all fit nicely, while none of them are so similar to each other (or at all really!) that it seems repetitive or too similar to one another that i can't keep them straight.
Actually all the individual stories are exactly that : individual!
My personal favourites are:
Katharine McGee - a futuristic story about online dating, just one of those "awww how cute" kind of stories!
Emery Lord - airport love, do i need to say more?
and Jennifer L. Armentrout's stories - no particular reason just enjoyed that one!
All of them are the perfect mixture of fluffily overdone and realistic romance. My personal favourite.
What i also loved is the mixture, there are same sex, traditional and transgender love interests. There are stories that are featuring white main characters (so sad that that is still something you have to mention as something special!)
Honestly the title of this book is just perfect because everything is so utterly cute, i felt like i was drowning in a sea of cupcakes!!
But i honestly think that in this anthology there is such a great mixture of different stories that EVERYONE can find at least one story that they will love.
Of course if you are completely against the slight undertone of "insta-love" you won't.
But honestly what are you doing here and reading such a book if that is not for you?
You can tell form the TITLE that its going to include an insta-love-y vibe!
I highly, HIGHLY recommend this anthology, for people seasoned in them, for complete newbies to the genre, for everyone that loves something nice and easy to read and just want a good time and for everyone in between.
Its defiantly worth a try, so do it! Give it a try!
