Imagine your name is John Lennon, only everyone calls you Beatle.
And then you meet your dream girl and her name is Destiny McCartney.
But what if you're already with the perfect girl?
A novel about change, chance and everybody doing the wrong thing.
Favourite Quote:'You know what they say about mistakes though,' she said, all breathy and half-lipsy. 'It's the only way you ever learn anything.' And she leant forward and kissed him. Right there, in the middle of the bar. Right there, in the middle of his lips.
This book marches to it's own beat! Beatle Meets Destiny is a little bit quirky, completely original but absolutely brilliant.
Right from the start this book was was a lot of fun. In the first chapter we learn Beatle has a twin who was born on a different day in a different year (I know what you are thinking it makes no sense but trust me it does). This book made me laugh so hard I am glad that I wasn't reading it in public.
Not only do you laugh but you get caught up in the emotional mess of Beatle and Destiny's lives. Making you want to savour every word but at the same time rush to the end to know that everything is going to work out okay.
Beatle, I didn't expect to love him as much as I did. I mean the guy has a girlfriend (who is super nice) and he is kissing another girl. But Beatle was a little bit different in a good way (he had this strange quirk about Friday 13th), he is witty and of course handsome. And the whole kissing another girl thing well I completely understood why Beatle did it.
Destiny, is the artistic type who is up for anything kind of girl (she applied for a stalker position!). She also is a little bit quirky in her own way (she writes star signs for a local magazine and based on her large and crazy family). They are both really hard to describe but are impossible not to love.
And the secondary character they were just as well developed and as interesting. I especially liked Beatle sister, Winsome with her snarky attitude. I am hoping William's writes a book about her.
There were also some funny conversations that brought back lots of memories for me that Destiny had with her best friends about signs in any given situation. 'If I see a yellow car in the next five minutes that means Josh likes me'. Also listing all the reason why he possibly didn't call 'I know what happened,' Mathilde said, clicking her fingers again.'He's had a terrible accident and can't call because he's broken his hands'. I couldn't help but laugh because when I was a teenager, my friends and I would have the exact same conversation. So I do think Williams has captures teen life perfectly.
Overall this is an outstanding book that everybody needs to read!
Cover info: The red cover is the Hardcover US edition. I like it but I prefer the above paperback copy more because I think it appeals to guys as well. Just like this story.
