"Waiting On Wednesday" which is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. Here's the synopsis:
"Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?
Imagine if she hadn't forgotten the book. Or if there hadn't been traffic on the expressway. Or if she hadn't fumbled the coins for the toll. What if she'd run just that little bit faster and caught the flight she was supposed to be on. Would it have been something else - the weather over the Atlantic or a fault with the plane?
Hadley isn't sure if she believes in destiny or fate but, on what is potentially the worst day of each of their lives, it's the quirks of timing and chance events that mean Hadley meets Oliver...
Set over a 24-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it."
Oh my goodness, I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to reading this one! And already it sounds like it's just begging to be a movie. It has a really long title (it shall henceforth be known as TSPOLAFS) and I'm totally digging the UK cover, I usually go for the US hardback copy of a book but I'm going for the paperback in this case. I'm hoping this is a thought provoking and thoroughly heart warming read :)
TSPOLAFS is published on 5th January, 2012. I know what I'll be spending my christmas money on!
