Review: Thirty-Two Going On Spinster by Becky Monson

Looking for a book to make you chuckle? Try Thirty-Two Going on Spinster (Spinster Series, Book 1).


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

I needed a lighthearted romance to read. Know what I mean? Sometimes you just need something that will make you smile. Thirty-Two Going on Spinster was perfect for that.

Life didn't turn out the way Julia Dorning thought it would, and she's fighting the idea that she's a spinster—a word more commonly seen in historical novels. Julia resolves to get out of her rut rather than embrace her spinsterhood. 

That's when Life throws her a bone—or a challenge if you will—in the form of Jared Moody. The result is a funny chick lit romance that made me smile. In fact, I'm still smiling as I write this.

Takeaway Truth

Take a break from life challenges. Read Thirty-Two Going on Spinster. I think you'll find it delightful.
