Can you believe it’s February already?
I took a little reading hiatus there for a bit but finally feeling it again. I go in and out of reading phases. Sometimes, I spend more time cooking, watching movies, and other times I wake up, and all I want to do is read. Lately, I’ve been reading in the morning and right before bed. It really does help me sleep better at night!
When I was at the airport last week, I picked up This Time Next Year to have something to read on the plane since I forgot my book in the car. Sometimes, it takes me a few chapters before I’m hooked, but this book sucked me in. I was surprised since it was not my typical go-to genre, but it was so cute! I ended up reading almost half of the book on the flight up there, which is rare for me since I’m easily distracted on planes. I found myself relating in many ways to the main character. It’s funny how a scenario so different from your own can somehow match up to similar emotions that you’ve been feeling.
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.

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner—the one you’re genetically made for.
That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.
Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…
A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences.
I wasn’t going to add another book, but since I’m only a few chapters away from finishing the first pick, I wanted to add The One by John Marrs. Kyle finished reading it a few months ago and said it was really good. I will be starting it tonight!
I can’t wait to hear what you think of these books! 😊
