This Time Next Year

This Time Next Year by Sophie Cousens


Book Summary:

Their lives began together, but their worlds couldn’t be more different. After thirty years of missed connections, they’re about to meet again…

Minnie Cooper knows two things with certainty: that her New Year’s birthday is unlucky, and that it’s all because of Quinn Hamilton, a man she’s never met. Their mothers gave birth to them at the same hospital just after midnight on New Year’s Day, but Quinn was given the cash prize for being the first baby born in London in 1990–and the name Minnie was meant to have, as well. With luck like that, it’s no wonder each of her birthdays has been more of a disaster than the one before.

When Minnie unexpectedly runs into Quinn at a New Year’s party on their mutual thirtieth birthday, she sees only more evidence that fortune has continued to favor him. The gorgeous, charming business owner truly seems to have it all–while Minnie’s on the brink of losing her pie-making company and her home. But if Quinn and Minnie are from different worlds, why do they keep bumping into each other? And why is it that each fraught encounter leaves them both wanting more?

A moving, joyful love story, This Time Next Year explores the way fate leads us to the people we least expect–no matter what the odds.

My Review:

This Time Next Year bookWhich book did you ring in the New Year with?! I finished up This Time Next Year by Sophie Cousens and it was just such a sweet and endearing story and the idea of it centering around NYE made it the perfect read for last week.

Of course, being in the rom-com department there’s the romance element, but it also speaks to the relationships you have with friends, family, and most importantly, yourself.

This Time Next Year
⁣The narrative flashbacks added so much to the plotline and these characters, which were quite layered for this genre. There’s just the perfect amount of seriousness, humor, and heartwarming moments and I loved that it not only centered around a romantic relationship but also sorting out all the important(and sometimes messy)t parts of one’s life.

The main characters, Minnie and Quinn were delightful but also relatable and the supporting role characters were also quite lovable and were the perfect quirky additions to the storylines. ⁣Is this on your reading list? I would love to hear!
