Waiting on Wednesday (33)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.

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

I read and enjoyed Jennifer E. Smith's The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and This Is What Happy Looks Like, so I'm familiar with her ability to write fun contemporary romances. The Geography of You and Me seems like it's going to be another fast read that I'll be able to fly through in a day, and I love that it's about a long-distance relationship. I'm so excited to get my hands on a copy of this book!

Also, the cover is so adorable! I especially love that it matches the covers of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and This is What Happy Looks Like.
