Minnie and Quinn were both born on new years day in the same hospital. There was prize money being offered for the first baby born in 1990 and both Quinn and Minnie’s parents were in the race to win, thus enemies were born. Though being born on the same say the two couldn’t be more different. Quinn is a wealthy and successful entrepreneur with a tragic past. Minnie is a small business owner with self-confidence issues and a ton of bad luck. For some reason, their lives seem to keep pushing them together. Do opposites really attract or are they destined to be enemies forever?

My review:

I received This Time Next Year in my book of the month box. I picked it because I wanted to read a fun rom-com, and that is exactly what I got. The plot was very predictable, as with most rom-com books. ThisΒ  has all been done before and there was nothing really special or interesting about it. I thought the author could have made some scenes much better than they were. I did find the characters fairly well developed for a rom-com but not especially relatable. The decisions the characters made just didn’t make sense to me. This read was enjoyable, but I didn’t feel like it had any deeper more thought-provoking themes. Therefore I would say this book is not exactly memorable but it would be good if you were just looking for something easy to read.
