#bookofthemonth This Time Next Year by Sophie Cousens

Tuesday, August 3, 2021

I am horrible for buying books and than forgetting I have new books to read, so I go and purchase more books. I got this book earlier in the year but just found it. I am a sappy romantic and this book hit the spot. Its more than just a typical rom com - its written well and its captivating.  This book I found this book was delightful and I was engaged throughout my reading.

"When Minnie meets Quinn at a NYE party, it’s clear that they’ve got nothing in common – except for the strange fact of their being born in the same place at the same time on New Year’s Eve. A crazy coincidence, but not a reason to pursue a friendship, and definitely not an excuse for Quinn to hope for something more.

He is a privileged party boy who believes the world is his for the taking. She is a hard-working realist, whose lack of confidence tends to hold her back.

Opposites don’t really attract…it’s not like this is a rom-com, right?

The clock strikes midnight, their moment passes, and another year begins. But if Quinn and Minnie are from different worlds, why do they keep bumping into each other? And why is it that each frustrating interaction somehow seems to push their lives in the right direction? Could it be that instead of clashing, their different outlooks might complement each other?

Perhaps now is the time for them to finally come together..."
