Meet Cute Playlist

Meet Cute is an anthology that had me “awh”-ing out loud from beginning to end. No joke, I was reading some of the stories after I took my final exam at school and afterwards my friend told me I was smiling to myself the entire time ahaha. So to admire the book even more, I decided to put together a playlist for each of the short stories in the collection!


Before I share the playlist, if you’re not aware of Meet Cute here’s a quick synopsis via Goodreads:


Whether 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.

Now onto the songs! Here’s the Spotify playlist where you can click the play button and jam out to these tunes I absolutely adore:

I assigned each short story two songs and it goes in order starting from the beginning of the collection. For example: “Slow and Steady” and “Third Eye” are for Katie Cotugno’s part and it keeps going from there. Here’s the full list though so you know which goes with which:
