33503607Whether 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.

Meet Cute gave me so many feels but also drove me crazy because there were some characters that I was dying to know how their stories would end. I didn't love every story in this; whoever each story kept me wanting to read. I read this book in less than two days because I couldn't stop reading it. I have a soft spot for cute meets like these. I love the mix of different kind of characters. The diversity in this book made this book wonderful! The stories I enjoyed most were Print Shop by Nina Lacour, Hourglass by Ibi Zoboi, Click by Katharine Mcgee, Somewhere That's Green by Meredith Russo, The Way We Love Here by Dhonielle Clayton, Oomph by Emery Lord, The Dictionary of You and Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout, The Unlikely Likelihood of Falling in Love.  However, Oomph, Hourglass, Somewhere That's Green and The Dictionary of You and Me, are my top favorites. I found these ones were the ones that I read faster, smiled more and even giggled. If I could get full stories to those four I would be over the moon happy!
What I love most about these kinds of books is that I get to read some new authors that I haven't read before and this book made me want to read more of their writings.
Overall this book is adorable!
