Weekend Book Give-Away: The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Do you believe in true love?  How about love at first sight?  This week's book giveaway, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, is for all you romantics out there: 

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.

Ten people are waiting to read this now, but you have a chance to skip the line.  Tell me about the most romantic book you have ever read, and why you think it is romantic (mine is The Princess Bride by William Goldman).

Winner will be selected with Random Number Generator on Tuesday October 30, 2012. Be sure to leave a name with your entry, and check back to see if you won. To win you must be a teen (6th-12th grade, or 12-18) who uses a Sno-Isle Library.

Well, I've read a lot of romantic books, and although I can't pick the number one romantic book I've read, I can say that The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is probably in my top ten, especially since it was such a realistic take on love.

I have read a lot of books with romance in them but very few based on romance. The best I've read is Dragonfly by Julia Golding. Even though its not realistic the author makes the changing feelings of the two leads very evident through her writing.
