Waiting on Wednesday – Week 177

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's to spotlight upcoming books that I DYING to get my hands on!

This week's WoW is:
The Odds of Lightning by Jocelyn Davies

A bolt of lightning inspires an incredible journey in this charming, magical realism adventure that takes four teens on an all-night journey through the streets of New York City.

Extraordinary things happen when we least expect them.

Tiny, Lu, Will and Nathaniel used to be best friends. Then life-defining events the summer before high school tore them apart. Now, three years later, they hardly talk anymore. Nathaniel has become obsessed with winning the prestigious science scholarship that his genius older brother once won. Will has risen from anonymity to popular soccer star. Lu grew into a brash, impetuous actress. And shy, poetic Tiny has slowly been fading away.

But fate weaves their lives together again the night before the SATs, during a wild thunderstorm that threatens to shut down New York City. And lightning strikes.

Before they know what's hit them, the four teens embark on an epic all-night adventure to follow their dreams, fall in and out of love, reconcile the past, and overcome the fears that have been driving them since that one lost summer. And by the time the sun rises, odds are they’ll discover that there’s a fine line between science and magic, and that the mysteries of love and friendship can’t be explained.

I haven't read Jocelyn Davies's A Beautiful Dark and the rest of the series, but I'm sure that this one is gonna be fantastic. It's a bit weird that there's roughly a month before The Odds of Lightning is published but there aren't too many reviews around. Anyway, I love stories that take place over one night–there's always something super exciting about them. Can't wait!

What are you waiting on?


  1. I think I DNF'd her Beautiful Dark, but wouldn't mind checking out a new one of hers. Enjoy!

  2. oh I hadn't heard of this one AT ALL but it does sound pretty good! It kind of sounds like it'll happen over on day, right?! I always think books like that are pretty epic. (And I'm already feeeeling things for Tiny omg.) Also love the cover! :D

    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
