The Book

Thirty-Two Going On Spinster by Becky Monson
Genre: contemporary romance


About Thirty-Two Going On Spinster:
Julia 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?
Source: Info in the About Thirty-Two Going On Spinster was from the press kit from the publicity team.

Excerpt:
I seriously can’t do this report right now. I’m not in the mood. I have time to procrastinate, so I might as well do just that. Perhaps a little cat-nap would lighten my mood. I am feeling pretty sleepy.

A little nap might be helpful for this mood I can’t seem to get out of. And yes, I do realize I’m at work. How could it be possible for me to take a nap? Oh, but it is possible. And no, Spectraltech does not offer break rooms with cots in them, even though I anonymously left an article on the president of the company’s desk about how napping during the day can bring up productivity and morale in a company. He obviously didn’t bother reading it.

No big deal because I am actually the queen of taking little snoozes at work. A self-titled queen, but a queen nonetheless. No one actually knows about it because it’s not something one should brag about. But it is quite a talent if I do say so myself.

It took me some time to perfect it, but I figured it out. Basically, I just lean my head on my left hand while my right hand moves the mouse. It took practice to be able to sleep and move the mouse at the same time, but I mastered it. I’ve also made sure that my computer screen is placed strategically in front of me. That way, if anyone were to walk into my office, my face would be hidden from view. It’s genius, really.

Luckily for me, I don’t have to use this technique that often (it tends to put a bit of a kink in your neck) because I have a little secret: Upstairs on the sixth floor is a rarely used conference room. It’s mostly used for the Board of Directors quarterly meeting. Sometimes they will use it for presentations to investors or buyers, but this is rare.

Since Mr. Nguyen is the VP of accounting, he is always a part of the board meetings. Being the next person ranked under Mr. Nguyen and his assistant, I know his schedule and, therefore, know if the conference room is in use. Today, as in most days, it’s vacant. This means I can grab some files (my disguise) and head up to the sixth floor to catch a little nap.

It’s brilliant, right? Too bad I am the only one that gets to celebrate my napping-at-work discovery since it’s not something one would want to share with one’s coworkers.


Praise
“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)
