Waiting On Wednesday #14 Hello, Goodbye, and Everything In Between

New WoW

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that showcases upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

It shouldn’t be a secret what I’m waiting on this week. Jennifer E. Smith has found a spot on my favorites list and I just have to read her next book. I still need to read the others, so now my to-buy list just got bigger.

Young-Adult, Contemporary, Romance


On the night before they leave for college, Clare and Aidan only have one thing left to do: figure out whether they should stay together or break up. Over the course of twelve hours, they’ll retrace the steps of their relationship, trying to find something in their past that might help them decide what their future should be. The night will lead them to friends and family, familiar landmarks and unexpected places, hard truths and surprising revelations. But as the clock winds down and morning approaches, so does their inevitable goodbye. The question is, will it be goodbye for now or goodbye forever?

This new must-read novel from Jennifer E. Smith, author of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, explores the difficult choices that must be made when life and love lead in different directions.

I can’t wait to read this book, and had I known what an amazing writer Smith is, I’d have requested this book via Netgalley when it first appeared. Nevertheless, I went and found it, just to request it. I know my odds aren’t great now that it has been up a while but it doesn’t hurt to try. I am still buying it whether I read it before it’s release or not. I have a feeling that I’m going to love this! What book are you waiting on this week?

Stacking The Shelves #48

Stacking The Shelves is a weekly meme, hosted by Tynga’s Reviews, that spotlights the books we are adding to our shelves; whether they be virtual or physical.

To those who celebrate, have a great Memorial Day weekend! I’m working this weekend to make up for some of the hours I’ve missed this week. I managed to get to the library, but left my list at home of the books that I want to read. Still, I managed to get 2 that have been on my TBR forever.

Review: The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith

My Rating 4 Stars

Goodreads | Amazon | B & N

Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they’re rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.

Lucy and Owen’s relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and — finally — a reunion in the city where they first met.

A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith’s new novel shows that the center of the world isn’t necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.
