Waiting on Wednesday (43)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week I'm waiting on:

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
Publication date: January 2, 2012

Who would have guessed that four minutes could change everything?

Today should be one of the worst days of seventeen-year-old Hadley Sullivan's life. She's stuck at JFK, late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon to be step-mother that Hadley's never even met. Then she meets the perfect boy in the airport's cramped waiting area. His name is Oliver, he's British, and he's in seat 18B. Hadley's in 18A.

Twists of fate and quirks of timing play out in this thoughtful novel about family connections, second chances and first loves. 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.

Why I want it: I don't read many contemporary books, but this one sounds so cute. I do love a good read about true love at first sight. I can't imagine the whole story in 24 hours, and on a plane, too! I can't wait for this one.

What upcoming releases are you looking forward to?

Maybe it's because I don't believe in love at first site, but this book doesn't pull me in. I'll definitely be looking for reviews on this book to see if those will increase my interest in this book.

Thanks for visiting my WoW.

It's in my to-be-read pile actually! I'm plowing through Inheritance by Paolini to get to it.
