Books On Our Radar: Meant to Be by Julie Halpern

Meant to Be by Julie Halpern is definitely worthy of our Books On Our Radar this week! This book sounds like the perfect blend of romance and speculative fiction. Could you imagine what our lives would be like, if we knew whom we were meant to be with at the age of 18. I know when I was 18, I had no idea what I would be like as an adult, and who I would have ended up being in love with. But it would be cool to know what the universe had in store for us and if we choose to follow that path. What would be the consequences if we ignored our MTB? I can’t wait to find out how Julie Halpern envisions these possibilities. It looks like it is going to be hilarious and probably leading you toward a message about what living life means.  Meant to Be is releasing on October 24th, 2017 so be sure to add it to your TBR!

In a world where the names of MTBs—”meant to be” mates—appear on the body at age eighteen, a girl must decide whether to believe the phenomenon or follow her heart in this YA novel.

It started happening a few years ago: the names of MTBs—”meant to be” mates—appeared emblazoned on the skin at age eighteen. Agatha’s best friend has embraced the phenomenon and is head over heels in love with her MTB. But Ag isn’t so sure. As she searches the interwebs for her MTB (who has a common name, no less) she finds herself falling for a co-worker at the local amusement park. Is he a better match? What does Agatha really want in a mate, and moreover, what does she want for herself?

With her trademark wit and irreverence, acclaimed author Julie Halpern explores an age-old question: Who are we meant to be with? Readers won’t be able to resist knowing the answer.
