'Beatle meets Destiny' is about a boy called Beatle meeting a girl called Destiny at a tram stop ( how Melbourne-like) on a Friday night - Friday the 13th to be exact. The story unfolds from there. 

Both Destiny and Beatle are really quirky and unique making them easy to like and relate to. They both make mistakes and have their flaws which makes me like them ten times more. Some times their actions will make you cringe but hey, nobody's perfect.

Everything in the book is literal that it adds a little bit more humor to it. As I was reading it, I found myself really involved with the plot. 

It's a sweet quick-read and definitely worth your time :-)

Beatle meets Destiny was quite frankly the best book i've read in a while, if not ever, Gabrielle Williams tells the story of a not so perfect romance, but one destined to happen. The two are perfect for each other, and I fell in love with the characters the moment Beatle told a sarcastic comment to Destiny at the tram stop. I loved every minute of it and i just couldn't put the book down.

This book is absolutely stunning and even more remarkably relatable that its set in Melbourne, which just gives hope to people that there could be that one person destined for you.

Beatle Meets Destiny is about Beatle and Destiny. Beatle and Destiny are two very different people from different backgrounds and meet by fate at a tram stop. It is funny and quirky and is very different from books that i normally would read.

I thought this was the most beautiful book I've read in a while.

It was funny and romantic and was a delight to read.

I especially loved that it was set in Melbourne.

Beatle Meets Destiny.

The main character is called John Lennon. After John Lennon. His twin sister was born six weeks later in an entirely different year. From the first page, this book was interesting, witty, smart, and had a very interesting plot line. I loved it to bits.

Everything wrong that can happen, happens in this book.
Beatle meets Destiny closely ties to fate. It's the story of two people who we can see, are clearly destined to be together.

Gabrielle Williams is a witty writer, who combines her talent for writing and sense of humor to create a down-to-earth book which in one way or another we can all relate to someway or another.

This book is not your everyday book, but leaves the reader with a lasting impression, that yes things do go wrong, but in the end it all turns out for the better.
