Waiting on Wednesday

"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!


  1. I'm excited for this one as well. :) and the UK cover is gorgeous. love love love.

  2. This book sounds really good! Great Wow!

    This book sounds really good. I love the title of it too. Great pick!

    My WoW

  3. I just finished a proof of this and it really is absolutely gorgeous! I'd never heard of it so was a bit dubious regarding the premise (what can I say, I'm a cynic) but it really won me over. Planning on touring it via UKBT soonish so keep an eye out.

  4. I just got this one in the post this week! I can't wait to read it.

  5. Thank you all for your comments. I actually got it in the post last week and accidentally read it the day after. I LOVED IT.

  6. It's probably just me but I'm finding your combination of font and white on black really difficult to read...and I really wanted to read about this book! Hope you don't mind me saying!

  7. Thanks Keren, I think you'll find the new design MUCH easier to read ;)
