Thirty-Two Going on Spinster by Becky Monson $25 Amazon or Paypal cash Giveaway & review
Julia Dorning is a spinster, or at least on the road to becoming one. She has no social life, hates her job, 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?
By day, Becky Monson is a mother of three young children, and a wife. By night, she escapes with reading books and writing. In her debut novel, Becky uses humor and true-life experiences to bring her characters to life. She loves all things chick-lit (movies, books, etc), and wishes she had a British accent. She has recently given up Diet Coke for the fiftieth time and is hopeful time will last… But it probably won’t. Becky runs a large book club on Facebook called “This Chick Reads”.
My review: Thirty-Two Going on Spinster by Becky Monson
Thirty-two Going on Spinster is funny. It makes you smile. It is also a clean read.
Julia Dorning at first I did not admire her. Julia was a gossip, lazy at work and living in her parents basement. Then we see her having a crush on a guy at work and she grows up. The more we see of Julia the more I like her.
Julia thinks she is a spinster. She comes home from work and goes to her basement apartment in her parents basement. She wears two basic colors.
Betsy Brown is a smoker in sales. Julia does not smoke but goes outside with Brown and they gossip. About four times a day.
Jared Moody is the new guy at work. I like him what little we see of him.
Julia gets in some embarrassing moments around Jared. That you just want the ground to open and swallow you up.
Julia loves to bake and when she bakes she loves to share with others. Her one boss loves her cupcakes. I would love to try some of her baked goods.
The setting is Colorado working in a software company. Julia has been their for 10 years.
Thirty-Two Going on Spinster is Becky Monson's first book and I would love to read more from her in the future.
I was given this ebook so I could give a honest review of it and be part of its blog tour.
