Thirty-Two Going on Spinster Blog Tour and Giveaway with Becky Monson

Thirty-Two Going on Spinster

Amazon Synopsis:

Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her career, and lives in her parent’s basement with her cat, Charlie. 

With the arrival of Jared Moody, the new hire at work, Julia’s mundane life is suddenly turned upside down. Her instant (and totally ridiculous) crush on the new guy causes Julia to finally make some long-overdue changes, in hopes to find a life that includes more than baking and hanging out with Charlie. 

But when the biggest and most unexpected change comes, will the new and improved Julia be able to overcome it? Or will she go back to her spinster ways?

My Thoughts:

Who wants to be in their thirties, living in their parent’s basement suite, stuck in a job they hate with no prospects before them and feel destined to be alone for the rest of their lives. That’s where Julia Dorning sees her life at thirty-two years of age. Then new-hire Jared Moody arrives at work and turns her mind to much with the biggest crush she’s had in years.

This is a funny chick-lit read that will have you laughing at her antics. Julia hates change and yet she finds herself making small changes. The test comes when she is forced into a big change. It’s either take a big risk or head back to her old spinster ways.

Julia has an endearing way about her. She makes you feel sorry for her, yet want to slap her silly sometimes, kind of like a real sister for thinking such ridiculous thoughts. I think she would be a fun sister to have.

There were some unexpected twists and turns in the plot that made this story more interesting. The entire plot was very plausible.

I enjoyed watching the changes come in Julia. It was like watching a butterfly come out of its’ cocoon. Aficionados of chicklit should enjoy this novel. I gave it 4 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this novel in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
