This Time Next Year Review
I gave This Time Next Year – Sophie Cousens a 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars as I felt that it was a little repetitive in parts.
This is an adult contemporary with themes of romance. Quinn and Minnie were born on the same day in the same hospital and they meet by chance on their 30th Birthday. Minnie has bad luck supposedly as she should’ve been called Quinn until Quinn’s mother heard it and named her son Quinn first. Minnie’s mother then decided to call her daughter Minnie Cooper (yes, they called her Minnie even though their surname was Cooper)! The family catchphrase every time something goes wrong in Minnie’s life is “This would never have happened to a Quinn Cooper”.
This Time Next Year follows their intertwining lives over the course of the year, flashbacks explain why they behave in certain ways. By chance, they keep running into each other and they are learning to work through their insecurities and become happier within themselves.
