STARCROSSED by Josephine Angelini
Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention. 
Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?
I adore the cover on Starcrossed and the synopsis sounds amazing!  I know a lot of you have already read this one and loved it.  Hopefully soon I'll be joining you!

I loved it too :) It was on my bookshelf for a few months before I got to it but I loved it and could understand why I waited so long!

Starcrossed is good but it took me a while to get into it. I didn't immediately connect with the heroine. Hope you enjoy when you get around to reading it!

This one sounds really good. Hope you are able to get to it soon. This sounds like a fun meme.

Starcrossed was one of those books for me that had a lot of pages, but didn't feel like it had a lot of pages.
