A gorgeous collection of first meeting love stories. Each one captures the essence of the stirrings of love or affection in only a short few pages. I particularly liked how different types of first meetings were covered, from seeing a familiar face in a new light to getting to know someone completely surprising. Mostly though I loved the diversity of the writers and their stories, some of my favourite writers were included and it made for a very rich collection.

I received a free eARC novel from the author and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. 

This was such a great group of stories! Of course, my only 5 star rating was Jennifer L. Armentrouts - the only reason I HAD to get this anthology - but I did enjoy a few 4 star ratings as well! I may need to re-visit this later when I want another feel good book. 

Here are my reviews and thoughts of the 14 novels in this anthology, breaking it down for my thoughts right after I read the stories :)

SIEGE ETIQUETTE by Katie Cotugno
4 stars
Hailey is at a high school house party when the cops show up. Everyone hides, knowing they will leave when no one gives them a reason to enter the house, and Hailey ends up hiding upstairs in the bathroom with Wolf, a fellow senior who always misses the first part of school because he works at his family’s farm. And Hailey, as the most popular girl in their class, you couldn’t have put too different people together in the same room. But after the incident in Hailey’s life, she decides to try to get to know Wolf and not be the jerk that she used to be. But will that change everything in school?

There are so many questions I have and no answers!! Ahhh!! So short, so sweet, so bitter ending, and I just need to know more!! I wonder if the author is going to write a full length novel of this?? One thing, the second person point of view threw me for a little bit, but just when I was getting used to it, it ended! Oh, the agony!


PRINT SHOP by Nina LaCour
3 stars
Evelyn is at her first day at Print Shop, the local, 30 year business where they make flyers/posters/banners – anything that needs to be printed. Evie doesn’t like being in the spotlight since she is queer and knows that not a lot of people are comfortable around her, so working at the Print Shop is great since they don’t have a website. But part of her job is to start mainstreaming the business to get more customers. When one customer, Lauren, makes a lot of bad noise about them because of a typo, Evie needs to figure out how to control the situation before it gets out of control. And she needs to figure out why she is getting flutters in her stomache when she thinks of Lauren. 

This was a cute story. It was full of anticipation and mystery, seeing as how we didn’t find out Evie’s name until well past halfway through the novel! And there was just as much mystery and suspense at the end of the novel, since the reader doesn’t really find out too much about the characters or their decisions. 


HOURGLASS by Ibi Zoboi
2 stars
Cherish has always been the odd person out in her town as one of the few black families in a white town, and it doesn’t help that she’s 6’ 5” tall. When her best friend – Stacy’s – ex-boyfriend made a terrible meme of Cherish, she knew she had to leave this small town and go somewhere she will fit it, so going to college far away is her dream goal. Then Cherish finds out that Stacy has been lying to her for months, and it is even more ammunition for her to leave. It’s only when she meets Mamadou, a black guy she can look up at and finds out that he’s going to school in this small white town that Cherish starts to think about what is best for her future. 

This was a good novel. There was a lot of drama about prom, which I was never into as a high schooler so I couldn’t really relate to, and I couldn’t relate to the problems Cherish was going through either. I would like to think that things started to work out for her and that she had a happy ending, though!


CLICK by Katharine McGee
3 stars
In the year 2020, a new app came out called Click, where they use althograms to match you with the perfect person. Alexa and Raden decided to try this app, for two completely different reasons. Just when Alexa met Raden, she realizes that she left her phone in the taxi. Losing a phone is not a big deal, but Alexa created her own data app that can “bring a person back to life” using their online data and it is on a chip that is connected to her phone. Alexa needs this chip so she and Raden go on an adventure to find it. And they may be going on another adventure all together. 

Very cute story. I loved how different Alexa and Raden are, and I love how easy going Raden was about jumping around town after a taxi to find her phone. And even though this is a short story, I loved the background stories we got for both characters. 


THE INTERN by Sara Shepard
2 stars
Clara is working as an intern at her father’s music production company, but she’s not really working. They are just giving her magazines to read and everyone is walking on glass around her. Since her mom passed away, Clara has been treated differently and has been a shell of herself. So when she was given the task to pick up Phineas, an up-and-coming musician, she was happy for a task. And the way Phineas got Clara to open up about herself and her mother was something no one has done yet, so the connection between them might have been the thing Clara needed. 

The connection between Phineas and Clara was a bit strained for me, but overall it was a good short story. The problem with short stories is the reader can’t get all of the details of the characters, which in this case made it a little harder for me to connect with the characters. 


SOMEWHERE THAT’S GREEN by Meredith Russo
2 stars
Nia has been trying to get her school to allow her, a transgender, to use the girls bathroom for a year since she changed genders. And things were looking up for her, until Lexie gave a speech about how scared she felt about the thought of letting her, and then other boys who claimed they were transgender, into her bathroom. But Lexie has her own deep secret, and she doesn’t necessarily feel this way – it was just what she was told to say about her parents. Neither Lexie nor Nia have talked to one another, but one night at a party changes all of that. 

I can honestly say that this might be the first transgender story I’ve read. I don’t have anything against these kind of stories, just that I can’t really relate to them that well. And I didn’t connect with this story as I would have with different characters, but I learned a lot about the feelings and thoughts that they go through every day, which makes me sad. I enjoyed this book and am glad that this was my first story about this topic. 


THE WAY WE LOVE HERE by Dhonielle Clayton
4 stars
Viola is asking the gods to show her who her true love is, when she saves a boy, Sebastian, from drowning in the ocean behind her parents inn. They both have the same number of lines on their fingers – a sign that they might be each other’s soul mate. Vio is tired of waiting to see what will happen, so they ensnare with each other to see their futures. But there are too many variables, and when it is all said and done, they have no idea what their future holds. One thing is for certain, though: Vio and Sebastian have intruded each other’s lives from that moment on. 

This was a very interesting story! There was a hint of magic and superstition, but also a feel of an islander’s life where they are living in the archaic times. I couldn’t quite tell if this was a historic story or a futuristic story. Though I kept imagining Vio looked like Moana from the movie, haha! I really liked how different this was from anything I’ve read, and I wish I had more to read!


OOMPH by Emery Lord
4 stars
Cassidy is at the airport at JFK flying back home after visiting the college that she may or may not want to go to next year, when she met a cute girl in the waiting room. Since Cassidy wants to be an actress, they started calling each other Peggy (Cass’s new name) and Natasha (the pretty redhead) after Marvel characters. Cass can’t tell if “Natasha” is gay or not, but she is crushing hard core on her. When their planes start to board, Cass has to decide if she wants to take the plunge, or think it wasn’t meant to be. 

This was adorable. I loved the “cos-play” they were doing at the airport and how they really got into their roles at the beginning, and then how serious and real they became when they were getting to know each other. You do get to find out “Natasha’s” name in the end, and it was a definitely a feel-good story for any reader, I think 


THE DICTIONARY OF YOU AND ME by Jennifer L. Armentrout
5 stars
Moss goes to work at the public library 3 days of the week, and almost always during 1 of those days, she calls Mr. H. Smith to remind him that the dictionary he checked out is over 4 months overdue. The conversations they have start with the dictionary, but little bits of information come through about both of them, so it feels like Moss knows H. Smith, even though they have never met. And she thinks he may sound her age, but you can never tell with someone’s voice. He is definitely a mystery, and then one day he shows up with the missing dictionary, and Moss’s life may change forever. 

O. M. G.!!! A JLA book about library related things??? This seriously is the best thing in my life right now!! Though – one thing – you can’t really go to undergraduate college to get a degree in library science – that doesn’t happen until you get a graduate degree. But other than that? PERFECT!! I loved the banter on the phone with the mystery man, and then when he came in they were still bantering and flirting and it was just wonderful. I think JLA needs to make this a whole novel, maybe a series, and relate it to libraries and I will die happily! Gah, so glad I got this short story and I may have to re-read this one over and over again :D


THE UNLIKELY LIKELIHOOD OF FALLING IN LOVE by Jocelyn Davies
4 stars
Samara, Sam, is a mathematician and taking AP Statistics, so when she gets a month long project worth 50% of her grade, she decides to do it on the percentage on how often she will see the guy she fell in love with by locking eyes with him in the subway trains. Not that likely, right? But Sam is putting in every effort to get all of the data and statistics she needs to ace this project. Or is she doing it because she really thinks she fell in love with him, and wants to see him again?

This was a cute story. Very mathy, which I’m okay with, though statistics is a bit much for my brain at this stage in my life, but I enjoyed it none the less! And Sam is such a nerd – she will go far in life! The ending was adorable!


259 MILLION MILES by Kass Morgan
4 stars
Philip is one of the last few contestants to possibly take a one-way trip to Mars and help start a new civilization there. And he needs to go, after his viral embarrassing event he just had at school. He needs to go far away so no one will remember the one mistake he made in his life. The last part of the trials he has to do is spend 24 hours in a shuttle to see how he does in closed spaces, and how he will react. He is also bunking with Blythe, a girl full of life and emotion and curiosity. Spending 24 hours alone with a person is difficult, but it can also change you as a person. Philip is about to experience that with Blythe. 

I enjoyed this! It kind of reminded me of the movie The Space Between Us and I adore that movie. Philip is still in the stages of high school bullying, so he has some growing to do as a person, and Blythe is just fun and amazing and so free-spirited. I loved the context of this story and wouldn’t mind a follow-up to see what happens to them!


SOMETHING REAL by Julie Murphy
3 stars
June is a huge fan of teen musician Dylan, and she gets a rare chance of a life-time to compete for a date with him – in a mini tv show of course. And she has one other competitor: Martha. June created a huge mass internet fan-site for Dylan and Martha is doing this for her older sister who died listening to his song. But the more that June and Martha see and listen to Dylan, the more they realize they were in this competition for the wrong reasons. And the more they realize that they could be friends rather than enemies. 

This was a good story. It was the stereotypical story of a popular boy who doesn’t think about anyone but himself and had a lot of controversial issues that were brought up throughout the story. I didn’t really connect with the characters that well, but I think other readers will enjoy this one. 


SAY EVERYTHING by Huntley Fitzpatrick
3 stars
Everytime Sean comes into the diner, Emma can’t seem to keep her eyes off of him. There’s nothing special about him and he always orders an iced tea – nothing else. When he asks her out on a date – awkwardly – she awkwardly says yes and they agree to meet the next day. But Sean’s surprise turns out to be a nightmare, because the worst thing that happened to her involves Sean as well. But she can’t deny the attraction she always felt for him before finding his out secrets, so Emma is going to need to figure out what to do. 

This was a little bit different than where I thought the book was going, and I actually found myself skimming part of the story, which in my mind is not that good since it’s a short story. But I did like the overall message. I think, again, it’s because of the second person point of view and having the word “you” used like it was supposed to be me as Emma. I’m figuring out real quick that second point of view is not my thing. 


THE DEPARTMENT OF DEAD LOVE by Nicola Yoon
3 stars
When Samantha broke up with Thomas, he wanted to know why. He’s known her since they were 6 years old, and they should be happy and still together, but they are not. He goes to the Department of Dead Love and the HeartWorker, Gabrielle, decides to do a scan on him and Samantha to find the cause of death for their love. When Thomas gets a choice to start again and see if they can make it last, he is unsure if he wants to have his memories of Gabrielle wiped clean.

This was a different kind of novel. Something that I haven’t found yet in YA literature, so it was very refreshing for me. It was a bit weird keeping up with it at first, but it got easier the further along in the story I got. It was sort of futuristic but today’s times as well. Glad I read it!

Because there are SO many authors and I've reviewed a bunch of their books before, the usual book info up here looked absurd. Above you'll find some quick info about the anthology. The average rating for the stories (full star rating for the book) will be at the bottom in my "overall" section.



Meet Cute anthology

Some People are Destined to Meet
Edited by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Average rating: 3.75 stars
[rating stars="four-stars"]

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.

Siege Etiquette - Katie Cotugno
[rating stars="three-stars"]

There’s something I sort of liked about this one for some reason. The second person narration was weird though; it’s like you’re in the story but not really. Definitely serious for a quick story but I could really feel her motivations for what she was feeling and doing. Wolf seemed cute and interesting with a complex backstory too. I think Cotugno did a good job of characterizing both of them in a short time period.

Print Shop - Nina LaCour
[rating stars="three-half-stars"]

Cute! I love the idea of a little, old-fashioned print shop in a small town. Not sure what to make of the actual romance because the girl/customer was so mad half of the time lol. Evie was sweet and interesting; I would definitely read this in a full-sized book! I always think that's a double-edged sword because it's a compliment (more please!) but also not a good thing (not fully fleshed out for a short story).

Hourglass - Ibi Zoboi
[rating stars="three-stars"]

The story itself was pretty good and very interesting, but the meet-cute part was practically nonexistent. I don’t want to spoil it but there was definitely not enough. The ending was abrupt and I’m confused about what might happen next. There are many possibilities but I like a little bit of closure in this situation. I loved the main character; she felt fully fleshed out in this short time period. I knew so much about her struggles and triumphs. The story was very much about her, but I'm not sure it was really about the meet-cute. That's why I can't rate this one too high, just because it didn't fall in line AS much with the book.

Click - Katherine McGee
[rating stars="four-half-stars"]

I’m a fan of McGee’s debut series and wasn’t surprised to see this short story take place with a similar futuristic vibe. The Click app was a really cool concept and I love the direction the story took from there. I don’t think the characterization was done as well as the other stories so far but from an enjoyment perspective, I loved it.

The Intern - Sara Shepard
[rating stars="two-half-stars"]

Mmm. That was lame. I love Sara Shepard but I was bored with this story. I didn’t feel the chemistry and I usually kind of enjoy the normal person/celebrity trope. The connection was fairly quick but I didn’t FEEL that. Maybe a full-length story would have been a better idea to expand on the characters and their backstories.

Somewhere That's Green - Meredith Russo
[rating stars="four-stars"]

This was a refreshing story! It was centered around the bathroom rights of a transgender student. The main character and the love interest had some interesting and eye-opening conversations and a lot of it took me by surprise. I loved Nia’s dad for being so supportive of her, but the same could (probably) not be said for the other parents involved.

The Way We Love Here - Dhonielle Clayton
[rating stars="three-stars"]

Okay now THAT needs to be a full book. Very interesting and confusing concept. I’m not 100% sure what happened? But I did kind of like it? The magical realism was a fun change from the rest of these stories too. It reminds me of the red string theory or legend I read about a long time ago.

Oomph - Emery Lord
[rating stars="five-stars"]

Loved it. Potentially biased because Emery Lord? Very possible. However, I sincerely felt the chemistry and enjoyed the banter like nobody’s business. Airport love stories are so fun to me and this was no exception. These girls are my favorite. How does Emery Lord always do this?

The Dictionary of You and Me - Jennifer L. Armentrout
[rating stars="four-half-stars"]

Okay that is the definition of a meet cute. I love the dictionary/library/secret caller situation so much. The characters were cute and awkward (maybe a little too awkward toward the end for me). This is a perfect short story that doesn’t need any more or less to get the message across.

The Unlikely Likelihood of Falling in Love - Jocelyn Davies
[rating stars="five-stars"]

I’m surprised to say I loved the statistical and scientific aspects to this one. I’m majorly into anything involving fate so I was super excited about the direction this took too. I also love the fact that it made fun of the concepts of soul mates and meet cutes - very meta. Looooved it and tbh a little obsessed with it. Give me more books like this.

259 Million Miles - Kass Morgan
[rating stars="three-stars"]

I was intrigued by the different genre for this one. The whole mars mission concept was very cool. I’m PISSEEEED about the ending for a lot of reasons and my rating might go down the more I stew on it. The meet cute aspect was totally there but there’s something I specifically want from the endings of these stories that didn’t happen here. Humph.

Something Real - Julie Murphy
[rating stars="four-half-stars"]

I love how unexpected this was. You think you’re getting one thing (at the beginning at least) and it turns into something even better. I loved the characters and the whole “win a date with a celebrity” premise. I’m also now craving dinosaur nuggets. Julie Murphy is the best.

Say Everything - Huntley Fitzpatrick
[rating stars="three-stars"]

I’ve read two books by this author: loved one and hated the other. Needless to say, I had no idea what I could expect from this story. The premise didn’t do much for me, especially because the rest of them were much more unique. The writing style was a little odd but kind of worked, because it implied more about the future. That helps a short story feel longer.

The Department of Dead Love - Nicola Yoon
[rating stars="four-stars"]

Speaking of unique stories, this one definitely fit the bill. It reminded me of a lot of movies kind of mashed together... I would love this as a movie actually. I liked the premise a lot but the meet cute circumstances did feel a little weird. It worked, sure, but I didn’t love it. Or them.

Meet Cute had a diverse mixture of genres and representation, in this collection of stories, there is something for everyone. I love reading about characters meet cutes and the *thing* that starts it all. My 5 stars picks were Nicola Yoon's 'The Department of Dead Love, Emery Lord's 'Oomph', Katharine McGee's Click and Jocelyn Davies’ The Unlikelihood of Falling in Love .

Meet Cute: Some People Are Destined to Meet was sent to me through NetGalley for me to read and review. I'm really glad I got the chance to read this book because it gave me a bunch of warm fuzzies. 

This book was a collection of short stories written by popular YA authors including: Jennifer L. Armentrout, Nicola Yoon, Katharine McGee, Sara Shepard, and more. The settings and genres of these stories varied greatly from one another. Some were set in the future, some took place right here and right, some created a social dialogue within the stories, others dipped into sci-fi and fantasy, but all of them focused on the moment two people who are destined to fall in love meet. 

Of course, I liked some more than others, but all of them made me feel a lot of warmth and love while reading them. There was a part of me that was dying to find out if the couples that met in these stories lasted, but I think not knowing was part of the beauty. These stories captured people in almost perfect moments of meeting each other for the first time and it was as simple as that. What made these stories so lovely was the not knowing of how things ended up and just suspending yourself in the moment of that perfect meeting. 

Meet Cute was a quick read since it was a compilation of short stories and all of the stories were wonderful. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys love stories, YA stories, and having a book give you the warm fuzzies. 

Some of my favorites were: 
The Dictionary of You and Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout
The Department of Dead Love by Nicola Yoon
Click by Katharine McGee
The Unlikely Likelihood of Falling in Love by Jocelyn Davies

I absolutely loved this. My favourite was short story was Katharine McGee's, it was just so sweet. A book of short stories of how people met, what more could you want. All of the stories were so beautifully written and cute.

I have been pondering for a few hours how can I approach a review of this anthology – the idea is simple, Meet Cute tells 14 different stories of those first encounters when something magical happens. So it’s not as though there can be a massive spoiler but at the same time I don’t want to take away the joy of your own discovery!  

What I loved about the anthology is that the stories and voice are distinctive and varied. We have different settings, different times, different genders. A few stories follow a more traditional YA contemporary style (and I think some of them were my favourite, like Oomph, Click or The Dictionary of You and Me) but we also have some magical realism thrown in (The Way We Love Here) or dystopia (The Department of Dead Love). It’s a very smooth and soothing read, makes you grin a little and makes you think a little too. It even managed to stir some emotion in my cold black heart. 

What I didn’t like was what seems to be a new trend of using narrative in the second person in some of the stories. It always throws me off and I find it more difficult to empathise and get my head around the story. I hope this will not be a big new trend!

Overall, highly recommended, only took me 2 days to whizz through the whole collection.

This was a mixed bag. I desperately need more of Meredith Russo's story about a transgender girl falling in love with a still-in-the-closet Christian girl. Then there were two that were just blah. Most of them were cute little love stories that had just the right amount of romance.
Was this review helpful?
Some of these stories were really cute, but some were just ridiculous. I'm not sure if the authors understand what a meet cute is, but seeing each other in a bathroom and then randomly kissing is not quite what a meet cute is all
About.

very cute anthology that I REALLY enjoyed even though I'm usually not a big fan of anthologies myself.
Was this review helpful?
This is a lovely and pleasantly diverse short story collection - I particularly liked that there were four f/f couples featured, as these are quite often overlooked within YA, and that it included stories in different genres. I genuinely enjoyed all of them, but the ones that most stuck with me were Meredith Russo's 'Somewhere That's Green', about a trans girl and a seemingly transphobic classmate brought together by a school play; Emery Lord's 'Oomph', a very cute meeting between two girls in an airport; and Nicola Yoon's 'The Department of Dead Love', a high concept tale of a boy who goes to great lengths to get over his ex-girlfriend. A couple of the stories felt a little cramped or rushed given the restrictive word count, but the standard of the writing is excellent and it introduced me to a few new (for me) writers who I'll definitely look out for again.

'Meet Cute' was a great addition to the YA anthology shelf, with so many adorable romances with enough variety that there's something for everyone. I really appreciated the fact that at least a quarter of the stories had LGBT protagonists (with Emory Lord's f/f meet cute being one of our favourites!), making this the most diverse anthology I've read. 

I also loved the mix of genres, too. Although the amount of world building writers that Nicola Yoon and Dhonielle Clayton had to do to make their story work would have been more at home in a full length novel, it was interesting that there was some really high concept things going on as well as the classic 'two strangers in an airport' storyline. 

My absolute favourite of the collection was written by Jocelyn Davies. It was definitely on the longer side, which I loved, and felt like the most satisfying meet cute about a girl finding a cute boy on the subway and working out the statistics to meet him again.

Most importantly, 'Meet Cute' has given me more material from my favourite authors and helped me to discover new ones! Definitely worth a read if romance is your thing!
Was this review helpful?
Meet Cute is a sweet and occasionally frothy YA anthology. Each story focuses on the couple meeting. The various authors do a great job of capturing that fizzy feeling that comes with meeting someone with potential. I loved that the stories feature characters who are diverse in race, sex, and sexuality. While all the stories were good, the stand out for me was Jennifer L. Armentrout's "The Dictionary of You and Me."
Was this review helpful?
Aw what a cute, mushy, adorable collection of meet cutes! There is a huge range of stories in here, bursting with originality and tons of diversity. Some of the stories were a little cheesy for my taste, but most left me with a smile on my face, and the characters fondly in my thoughts long after I finished the story. I think this book would make a very cute valentines day gift.

This book was cute as promised, but I feel like some of the stories weren’t as cute as I wanted them to be. When I think fo a meetcute I think of something that makes me melt. A lot of the stories felt incomplete. I think for me, it was because I didn’t get invested in their relationship because I didn’t meet the other person until the time they meet. It wasn’t someone they knew in passing or knew of, usually it was someone we don’t really know about until that second. I know the whole point of the stories was the “meetcute” but I think it just fell a little flat for me. I’m not sad I read it, I was just expecting it to be a lot more heartwarming.

I have loved discovering these different love stories created by so many authors I admire. I've loved the diversity (which was so important to me). The cover is absolutely beautiful.

This was a fun book to read! It is full of stories of couples meeting in unique ways and falling in love. Some of the stories I just wanted to keep reading to learn more about the characters. Some of my favorites include The Way We Love Here, a fantasy story of a people who are born with a type of birthmark that leads them to their true love, The Dictionary of True Love, a story of an overdue library bringing two people together and The Unlikely Likelihood of Falling in Love, how an example of statistical probability leads to a meet cute.

This was such a cute book! It was super diverse and inclusive! It’s getting easier to find diverse books, but it is still definitely not the norm. I loved these quick reads especially Emery Lord and Jennifer Armentrouts stories! I would definitely recommend this book!

The book is an anthology with short stories of first encounters. The narrative is light and perfect for anyone who is looking for a cute book. Each story has its particularity, which makes reading fun and diversified. I loved "Click" by Katharine Mcgee, a futuristic story, but with current aspects and characters with real feelings.
