The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight
The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight | Jennifer E. Smith
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. Having missed her flight, she's stuck at JFK airport and late to her father's second wedding, which is taking place in London and involves a soon-to-be stepmother 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 sitting in her row. A long night on the plane passes in the blink of an eye, and Hadley and Oliver lose track of each other in the airport chaos upon arrival. Can fate intervene to bring them together once more? Quirks of timing play out in this romantic and cinematic novel about family connections, second chances, and first loves. Set over a twenty-four-hour-period, Hadley and Oliver's story will make you believe that true love finds you when you're least expecting it.

This is a nice read for those days where you would want to finish a book in one sitting. I love that it was packed with lot of emotions and back story of Hadley and not just some fluff to match the title of the book

Re-read this book I got as a teen. A love story about a young couple who meet in an airport on the same flight to London, on trips they are both dreading. I wish there was more about London because it‘s one of my favourite cities, but the story is still cute ☺️
8.5/10

#ShowSomeLove Day 4: Fats‘ review: “Jennifer E. Smith concocts a beautiful story that reminds us about the magic of fate, all in a span of twenty-four hours. Although it took me days to finish the book, The Statistical Probability of #LoveAtFirstSight is the best YA novel I‘ve read so far. If you‘re looking for a book that would make you gush and fill your heart with cheesiness, then this book is not for you.” Full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-5jD

I really like this book, I am not finished yet but I am excited to see what will happen next. Hadley is the main character, she is on her way to London for a wedding, her fathers. Hadley's father was in London to work at Oxford University. He then met another girl and divorced Hadley's mother. Hadley was so mad at her dad for this, she didn't want to go to the wedding. Hadley was so mad that she hasn't visited her father in a year.

Camryn_VandenBroeke In the airport on the way to London, she meets a kid named Oliver, he is also going to London for a wedding. Oliver is from London but was doing school in America. This is as far as I have gotten in the book, but I am excited to see what will happen next and if Oliver and Hadley will get together. This book is written in the third person omniscient because the author uses “he“, “she“, and “they“ in the story. 2y
Camryn_VandenBroeke If you like books that have romance and young adult fiction you would love this book. It always leaves you wanting more and to keep reading. I am excited to see what is going to happen next. 2y
MissYaremcio Well done Camryn! I am so glad you are enjoying the book! I think I read it in an afternoon lol! 6/6 2y

This was a cute short read about two people who end up falling in love due to fate. Your typical story about love at first sight set over a 24 hour period. Hadley meets Oliver in the airport on the way to her dads wedding and a series of events ends up uniting them for good. It‘s an extremely short read but nonetheless pretty good. Only complaint is that not too much happens in the book because of the short time span but still good!

Only finished this because it was a quick read. I wanted something light and fun, but just found this bland and predictable. It was hard to find proper justification to care about the characters which seemed flat and one-dimensional.

Above them, one of the blackened #television screens brightens, and there‘s an announcement about the in-flight movie. It‘s an animated film about a family of ducks, one that Hadley‘s actually seen, and when Oliver groans, she‘s about to deny the whole thing. But then she twists in her seat and eyes him critically. “There‘s nothing wrong with ducks,” she tells him, and he rolls his eyes. “Talking ducks?” Hadley grins.“They sing, too.” #QuotsyNov18

#PrinceOfJuly Day 19: This fits #InternationalLover to a T as 17yo Hadley Sullivan missed her flight by 4 minutes and meets a British boy named Oliver who also happens to be flying to London and, as fate would have it, shares her row in the plane. As Fats noted in her review: Smith concocts a beautiful story that reminds us about the magic of fate, all in a span of 24 hours. Full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-5jD

Another YA selection. I‘m on a roll! This was another book from the Bustle “meet cute” article I read. It was surprisingly sweet and poignant, especially considering the article topic. Definitely would recommend this quick read to anyone. It was delightful. #meetcute #youngadult Article link: https://www.bustle.com/p/13-romance-novels-with-meet-cutes-that-will-seriously-m...

While this book does contain an instalove story it's maybe only 10% of the book. The rest of the book is about a family and I adore books that look into family dynamics. I was pleasantly surprised with how good this is. The audio was wonderful. Cute quick listen.

I thought that this book was cute and I liked the characters and the story. Two young adults meet in an unexpected place and help each other deal with events that neither want to have to face. I found it to be a bit rushed and idealistic, but overall it was a light, cute read. I just think it needed more developing.

“It was his fault, all of it, and yet her hatred for him was the worst kind of love, a tortured longing, a misguided wish that made her heart hammer in her chest. She couldn't ignore the disjointed sensation that they were now two different pieces of two different #puzzles, and nothing in the world could make them fit together again.”

I was a bit reluctant to read this because 1. it's a young adult novel 2. it's a love story and 3. it's chic lit and this spells lots and lots of CHEESE, cheesy story, cheesy lines, a perfect gentleman and a damsel in distress. However, I was wrong. I actually enjoyed the book. Its just not about romantic love but also daddy and daughter love is also present. The book actually made me cry. Readers everywhere has to pick this one up. I recommend it

¿Desde cuándo son puntuales los aviones a la hora de despegar? Hadley ha llegado cuatro minutos tarde, lo que, bien pensado, no parece mucho. Cierra los ojos solo un instante y, cuando los vuelve a abrir, el avión ha desaparecido. Desarrollada a lo largo de 24 horas, la historia de Hadley y Oliver nos convence de que el amor verdadero puede aparecer en nuestras vidas cuando menos lo esperamos. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I just love the whole book in general. I was eagerly reading each page wanting to know more about this relationship that Hadley and Oliver developed over a course of 24 hours. I really liked the plot of the story. It was just such a heart warming read!

Hallo ihr Lieben, ich bin Kati ❤
Aber zum Buch: Ich liebe diesen Titel der alten Ausgaben 😍
Auch die Geschichte konnte mich überzeugen. Es ist zwar recht kurz und hat einen sehr tollen Schreibstil 😊
Die Story war sehr süß und meine Befürchtung, dass alles irgendwie unecht wirken könnte, weil es hauptsächlich am selben Tag spielt hat sich nicht bewahrheitet 😊
Ich kann es jedem Liebhaber von kurzen und romantischen Geschichten nur empfehlen 😊😍

I really enjoyed this book. The romance was sweet and the story and characters were well developed and had depth. The eye-roll factor was very low which is a good sign considering this is a YA romance. My only complaint (and this is a pet-peeve of mine) is that I found two grammatical errors nearly back to back. Other than that it was a quick and enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it.

My eyes kept coming back to this one because as interesting as it sounded I was unsure of the whole "at first sight" concept. However, I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely read this one again. The plot has just enough realism in this teenage romance to satisfy the skeptic in me. It doesn't drag on as well and I almost want a sequel to see where these two end up.

I don't read many contemporary romances but I may read more now because I really enjoyed this one.

There was more happening than just the romance but it all balanced nicely. I came to care about the characters. Enough so that I wish the book was longer, I wanted to know what was going to become of them.

If you want a quick read that'll make you happy, make you sad, and make you believe again, I recommend this book.

P.S. Why isn't this a movie?
