Summary (from Goodreads): 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.

Readers will experience Nina LaCour’s beautifully written piece about two Bay Area girls meeting via a cranky customer service Tweet, Sara Shepard’s glossy tale about a magazine intern and a young rock star, Nicola Yoon’s imaginative take on break-ups and make-ups, Katie Cotugno’s story of two teens hiding out from the police at a house party, and Huntley Fitzpatrick’s charming love story that begins over iced teas at a diner. There’s futuristic flirting from Kass Morgan and Katharine McGee, a riveting transgender heroine from Meredith Russo, a subway missed connection moment from Jocelyn Davies, and a girl determined to get out of her small town from Ibi Zoboi. Jennifer Armentrout writes a sweet story about finding love from a missing library book, Emery Lord has a heartwarming and funny tale of two girls stuck in an airport, Dhonielle Clayton takes a thoughtful, speculate approach to pre-destined love, and Julie Murphy dreams up a fun twist on reality dating show contestants.

This incredibly talented group of authors brings us a collection of stories that are at turns romantic and witty, epic and everyday, heartbreaking and real.

Thoughts:

The first time that I saw this book, I didn’t even need to read the synopsis to know if I wanted to read it or not. All of my favourite authors all in one anthology writing about first encounters? What’s not to love about this one? I think it is going to be the perfect companion for a snowy day this January, and I can’t wait to get lost in its pages!

HMH also has a fun pre-order incentive right now for these darling pins if this is one that you are considering as well.

    I love the sound of this one. Definitely can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this book. You’re absolutely right about reading this one in the winter time under a pile of blankets 🙂 It will be great.

    I do love the cover, and there are many authors in the mix that I am a fan of, anthologies are not something I am a fan of. I get the concept, know the stories are short, but still feel let down at the end of each story. But the cover and the authors on this one are gonna make it a hit for anthology lovers.
