This Time Next Year
This Time Next Year | Sophie Cousens
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.

A refreshing unputdownable read which I adored from start to finish. Quinn and Minnie are born on the same day, at the same hospital but one minute apart. Their lives couldn‘t be anymore different.,
Thirty years later they find themselves meeting up at the same time and the same place. What can this chance meeting mean? Quirky characters, great injection of humour throughout and some real feel good moments. The book also covers some adult themes.

Similar to my husband and I, the two main characters had many an opportunity to meet before actually doing so, but all the jumping around was not the way I would have told this story. Love, love, loved the sub-characters and side storylines and the spin on friends to lovers story.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Spanning multiple New Year‘s Eves, this was a festive and heartwarming read to start out the year! I enjoyed Minnie and Quinn‘s romance, but especially loved the themes of personal growth and friendship.

Not my usual genre, but an enjoyable first read for the year (selected for its New Year‘s Eve framework).

There‘s a sweet romance at the novel‘s core, but it‘s surrounded by self-discoveries and solid friendships and renewed familial affections…all of which offer love stories of their own.

This was a spur of the moment BOTM pick and I‘m so glad I snagged. I loved the way it was written, a nonlinear timeline building more connections between Minnie and Quinn. It‘s very light on the romance, but Minnie‘s self discovery more than made up for that.

First book of 2022 finished. This was set around New Year‘s Eve/Day so it was holiday-appropriate. I liked the two main characters and enjoyed following their story, built around a theme of good luck vs bad and whether what looks like a charmed life really is.

My NYE and NY day (well, morning) plans were made months ago when I decided to save this book for the occasion. I really enjoyed how this was written, how flashes back in time for both Minnie and Quinn unknowingly involved the other. It was a nice set up for the fate of a romance novel. I also liked that each understood their need to discover who they were independent of a relationship.

Jennifer3 I really liked this one too! It was a good one. 11mo

This was different than I expected, in a great way. Minnie has always resented Quinn because he was born one minute before her on New Year's, winning a prize her family needed & stealing her name. Then they meet on their 30th birthday and start spending time together. The chapters flip between the present & previous new year's, showing the two perspectives and the missed opportunities they've experienced. The character growth was really well done.

The character development in this story is top-notch! I wish I heard more about Quinn, it seemed the story focused a lot on Minnie. Quinn‘s story had a lot more to be explored, very tragic and all. The author did an excellent job of jumping from different POVs in a way that wasn‘t confusing. Great read!

Do you ever wonder how many times you crossed paths with the important people in your life before you actually met them? This book shows how it might happen with a timeline that jumps between the past and present. The characters felt real to me. This was a perfect year-end read with it‘s new year theme! It speaks to crosses paths, destiny, luck, good friendships and mental illness. There‘s a lot in this book, but it never felt heavy.

This was a very cute rom com book. I could definitely see this as a movie and I wish it would be turned into one! It was a unique take on the rom com tropes with multiple meet cutes and often in not cute ways. I was invested from the beginning on these characters, and their meetings and what their relationship could become.

This Time Next Year by Sophie Cousens is a book about a woman who has awful luck on New Year‘s Eve ever year and her birthday happens to be New Year‘s Day. She meets a man whose story intertwines with hers in a lot of unbelievable ways. This is a rom-com story. I could definitely see this being a hit movie. The writing was good, but very predictable for me. I enjoyed it, but it didn‘t blow me away.

I really enjoyed this one. While it is definitely a romance/will they or won‘t they type of story, there are some much deeper story lines about making difficult choices and stepping outside your comfort zone in order to be the best person you can be.

Minnie and Quinn are born on the same day, 1st January. Then around 30 yrs later they meet at a party on their birthday. So begins a relationship of sorts. It turns out their mothers know each other and the story of their birth comes out. It was a fun, fast read. I enjoyed it a lot! #books

I love when Author's include recipes in their books! We're cooking Steak Gyllenhaal Pie. Making it Vegetarian so we're calling it Fake Gyllenhaal Pie.

Loved the whole 'Gardening as Therapy'. Also include recipes! Definitely going to make Minnie's Fruit Cake next Christmas. Think Steak Gyllenhaal Pie (Steak & Ale) could be made Vegetarian by upping mushrooms.

Hairdressers Claire & Clare. ? I want a whole book about them.

“This Time Next Year” by Sophie Cousens is a quirky rom-com with a lot of heart. Minnie Cooper‘s story makes for a really enjoyable read and a great pick-me-up at the end of a difficult year! 5 stars!

A sweet, uplifting story. I expected a light, fluffy holiday romance. While this book does check that box, it also touches on deeper subjects. I loved the rich cast of main & supporting chararcters.

This was the perfect New Year‘s read! This was a quick and fun read with an interesting premise that I flew through. I will say that the past interactions of the main characters with each other was an unexpected and lovely surprise. However, I wish there was an epilogue as the ending felt a bit abrupt and overall I doubt I will re-read this book.

While reading this I was aware that on another day Minnie's woe is me attitude could have driven me nuts but I was prepared to be pleased and so I was. I liked the backstories for both Minnie and Quinn and all their near misses through the years. I liked that they each realized they needed to work on themselves before getting involved and that just because one of them was ready it didn't mean the other was. I liked the secondary characters a lot⬇️

bookandbedandtea But realized at the end that they were all Minnie's circle and we never saw Quinn without Minnie (except in flashbacks). I would have liked to have seen his life and met his friends. 2y
