Thirty-Two Going on Spinster by Becky MonsonJulia 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?

Anna is what my mom calls an “accidental blessing”. My parents thought they were done after my younger brother Lennon and I were born. They had a neat little matching set - a perfect family of four. And then when I was ten and Lennon was eight, they sat us down and told us that we were getting another sibling. We were not thrilled. I did not want another sibling, especially a sister. I liked having all the attention I needed from my parents. I didn’t want to have to share my toys and my clothes and my room… I think I actually cried when my dad called from the hospital, to tell us it was a girl. Lennon cried too, but not for the same reasons. He would have loved a brother.
Anna lived up to all of my expectations. She was the most spoiled rotten little thing wrapped in a cute bratty package. Everyone would say how adorable she was, or how cute her little pigtails were, or how witty she was. It was annoying. At that point, I was no longer in the cute stage – I was in the awkward-bad-hair-with-braces stage. It was not pretty. Everything she did was so adorable to everyone. Everything I did was just… awkward.
We never quite got along, me and Anna. We have completely different tastes in everything. I like to bake, she likes to go shopping. I like to read, she likes to go shopping. I like to watch my shows, she likes to go shopping.
Since high school graduation, Anna has been in and out of school, trying desperately to figure out what she wants to do with her life. I’m sure right now she is telling my mom about her newest idea and how this is “for sure” what she wants to do.
So far Anna has wanted to be a doctor, a lawyer, a dentist, a hair-stylist, an esthetician, a court reporter, and I think the last time she dropped by, she was extremely excited about becoming an elementary school teacher. Her excuses vary for why she changes her mind, but they all have one thing in common – it takes actual work to get a license or degree in each of her ideas. And Anna does not like to work. She likes things handed to her, a trait my parents are fully to blame for. I have reminded them of this on many occasions, and they do not deny it.
Praise for Thirty-Two Going on... Spinster
"Oh my, oh my. I have just finished wiping the tears of laughter from my eyes. This is seriously funny."
~Julie Darley (Never judge a Book by its Movie)
"This was a refreshing change of pace for me to read. Some good clean romance was found in it’s pages and that is a rare find these days. It was some great chick-lit. I would not have thought this was Becky’s debut book, it was so well done."~Liberty Ann (SnifferWalkBooks)
