Waiting on Wednesday {4}: Luminosity; Meant to Be

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Title: Luminosity (The Raven Chronicles #1)
Author: Stephanie Thomas
Release Date: November 13th 2012
Publisher: Entangled Teen
My name is Beatrice. When I was born, I was blessed with the Sight. I was immediately removed from my parents and enrolled in the Institution. At the age of twelve, I had my first true vision, earning my raven’s wings. And when I turned seventeen, one of my visions came true. Things haven’t been the same since.  
The Institution depends on me to keep the City safe from our enemy, the Dreamcatchers, but I’m finding it harder to do while keeping a secret from everyone, including my best friend Gabe. It is a secret that could put us all in danger. A secret that could kill me and everyone close to me.  
But the enemy has been coming to me in my dreams, and I think I’m falling in love with him. He says they’re coming. He says they’re angry. And I think I’ve already helped them win. 
I added this to my to-read list because it was eerily similar to a WIP I was working on back then. Everyone who's gotten to read this already all said positive things about it, so I can't wait!

Title: Meant to Be
Author: Lauren Morrill
Release Date: November 13th 2012
Publisher: Delacorte
Meant to be or not meant to be . . . that is the question.  
It's one thing to fall head over heels into a puddle of hazelnut coffee, and quite another to fall for the—gasp—wrong guy. Straight-A junior Julia may be accident prone, but she's queen of following rules and being prepared. That's why she keeps a pencil sharpener in her purse and a pocket Shakespeare in her, well, pocket. And that's also why she's chosen Mark Bixford, her childhood crush, as her MTB ("meant to be"). 
But this spring break, Julia's rules are about to get defenestrated (SAT word: to be thrown from a window) when she's partnered with her personal nemesis, class-clown Jason, on a school trip to London. After one wild party, Julia starts receiving romantic texts . . . from an unknown number! Jason promises to help discover the identity of her mysterious new suitor if she agrees to break a few rules along the way. And thus begins a wild goose chase through London, leading Julia closer and closer to the biggest surprise of all: true love. 
Because sometimes the things you least expect are the most meant to be.
Mortal enemies thrown to London? Count me in!
