Many Covers Monday - TSPO Love At First Sight

by - May 28, 2012

Hey crazy stalkers! Today we're looking at the different covers of The Statistical Probability of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. I'll get on with it whilst you try and get your mouth around that title. :P

 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 18C. 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.

Let's kick this off the usual way, with the US/UK covers. Of course, The US one is on the left and is easily the much cooler of the pair. I find the UK one (which I have never seen in shops) a little bit cosy fiction for my taste, I'd expect to see it sitting next to Cecelia Ahern or someone.

The UK Paperback on the left is pretty cute and reminds me of a scene in the book. France went with a simple couples scene. And both had difficulty finding a small picture to go with the massive amount of text that the title has...

And finally, Germany went with a slightly difficult to see plane scene and the Norwegians just went crazy. That's some creepy eyeballs right there.

So there you have it, from cute to creepy in six covers. Which ones did you like? Which did you hate? Got any suggestions for new MCM's? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I like first one and the second one best, really cute covers! :)

  2. Ah its the one with the feet that I saw this weekend, though I think the US cover is by far my favourite! And the eyes... brilliant, but wouldn't want it on my bookshelf!

  3. LOL, I actually love the Norwegian cover! That's so cool. :D I could put it up as a poster... ;) But I think I like the US one the best when it comes to representing the story!

  4. Haha, I kind of like the Norwegian one as well, though I like the UK and the US best. I hadn't seen the UK one before, but I agree it isn't as striking as the US cover. I still need to read this one!

  5. Definitely the US cover.
