My Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

It’s one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for – gasp – the wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she’s the 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. Julia also believes in fate, and that Mark, her childhood crush, is her MTB – her meant-to-be.

But this spring break, Julia’s rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: 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 live a little along the way. And thus begins a wild-good 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.

The Goblins of Bellwater, by Molly Ringle – I’ve discovered that I’m not one for goblins and fair folk stories it seems, and yet the storylines keep intriguing me.  Take this one, for instance – I actually came across it at work this morning because it was shelved on the wrong cart, and reading the synopsis it sounded kind of interesting.  It reminded me a little of The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, which is one of the few fair folk/goblin stories I’ve read that I really enjoyed.  So, who knows, I might find another one I enjoy.
