About the Author

By day, Becky Monson is a mother to 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 this time will last... but it probably won't.

Very cute story, but a couple of things bugged me. First, if you're into grammar and proper word usage, you're going to be disappointed. The word "accept" was used for "except," among other mixed up words...just a pet peeve of mine, especially when coming from a published book. Secondly, the story was fun, but then the last chapter just kind of ended things. While the rest of the book covered every day (almost) of the heroine's life, the last chapter seemed to have been written to just end the story...almost as if the author had reached her page limit and needed the story to end right then and there.

It's been a while since I read a book that had me so attached to the main character. I loved her! The story is a quick, easy, clean read that had me laughing out loud and left me wanting a sequel.

Julia Dorning is 32 years old, stuck in a job she hates, lives in her parents basement with her cat, and deathly afraid of change. She sees herself living a spinster life, at least until a new co-worker turns her world inside-out.

This book sucked me in as soon as I saw the title. I'm so glad I didn't pass this one up, as I totally enjoyed the character Julia, and couldn't get enough of her `spinster' personality.

Julia is such a fun character and I found her to be so witty and carefree, yet so unsure of herself. Some of the crazy predicaments she found herself in had me laughing out loud. (I'm still laughing as I write this just thinking about it.) It was fun watching Julia change throughout the story, and there was enough family and workplace drama, and a bit of romance, to keep me turning the pages.

I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a fun, light, easy- read chick-lit book. Author Becky Monson did a great job with her debut novel, and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us in the future.

All I really wanted out of this book was a short, mindless, entertaining read. Oh, it was mindless, alright.

•The writing style about as refined as that of a high schooler writing fanfiction. On top of that, there are so many grammatical and spelling errors. I'm not usually too picky with grammar, but this is a published work. Don't you have editors look over this? And why is every instance of "yeah", for every single character, spelled out as "yah"? Maybe it's a local pronunciation for where the book is set, but if it is, the author makes no mention of it so I'm left to assume it's just spelled wrong, and it's very distracting.

•The plot is so predictable. Every single "plot twist" could be seen from a mile away. I was surprised that Brown and Julia were surprised about Jared's background more than I was surprised about Jared's background. As for their dinner date where they declare their feelings and all that, if that could be any more conventional I'd cry. And sure, of course everything magically fell into place once Julia was laid off, and this baking career just opened up for her!

•I found Julia impossible to like. As a very single female I was hoping maybe she'd be a little relatable, but the only thing she has going for her is her baking. Her personality is dull, everything she likes is dull, and her opinions are inane. Not to mention her jokes just weren't cute or funny, like when she said that she'd be "grossed out" if Jared was a hermaphrodite, when she constantly talked about how gross it is for fat people to be in love, and when she mentioned Jared being "too good looking" to be gay (really now?). She's clearly a darling! No wonder this impossibly handsome man loves her for no reason!

Wonderful story! Loved the characters. I even cried once but mostly laughed hysterically. Very well written. I especially appreciate that there was no foul language. I wouldn't be worried if my daughters read it!

True-to-life "cringe worthy" hilarity. The type where you say to yourself "OMG I would totally die if that happened to me". Expect that and so much more in the fabulous Thirty-Two Going On Spinster. You can't help but relate to Julia's epic (yet endearing) awkwardness, which is what I actually enjoyed most about this book. The lucky ones have personally experienced the thrills of a real life "work crush" and this book rekindled those feelings and fond memories for me so distinctly. A quirky and relatable read!

Oh.My.Goodness. This is true Chick Lit...relatable, quirky, and downright hilarious. There were honestly times when I was laughing out loud...hard...when other people were around. *Ahem* Yeah, awkward. But I honestly couldn't help it! Becky Monson has written a splendid tale about the dangers of `playing it safe' all your life. Julia Dorning is afraid she is becoming a spinster. She is 32, unmarried, no boyfriend, and working in the same, dead-end boring job for the past decade. The only excitement in her life comes from exchanging gossip with Brown, a co-worker, and from baking.

Julia has not only worked at the same awful job for the past ten years, she's also lived in her parent's basement for the same amount of time. Nevermind that it's a furnished apartment...she's been living there rent-free with no real intention of moving out. Julia hates change and she is certainly not going to bring change upon herself unless absolutely necessary. As the story goes along, we see Julia begin to open up to many things in life, and it's so refreshing! I love reading as she discovers things about herself.

If you are looking for a feel-good, funny, girly book, this is a fantastic choice. I totally loved it. 5 out of 5 stars from me.
