Peek Inside 33 Valentines

Nothing good has ever come from February—at least not for Sophie. But this year, she’s determined to take control of her life and move out of neutral. February, though, isn’t exactly getting the message. Instead, the best friend she’s secretly in love with starts dating his dream girl, her father tells her the mother of all secrets, and her estranged brother doesn’t seem to want anything to do with her. Now, Sophie must come to terms with everything that’s gone wrong in her life, in order to fight for what she wants before she loses the chance to turn her luck around.

All Sophie wants for her thirty-third year is a calendar without a February—and without a Valentine’s Day. The unlucky month haunts her with regrets, loss, and missteps she can never take back. But this year, she’s determined to make a change— and she’s going to start with telling her best friend, Sam, how she feels about him.

But February isn’t making it easy for her. Sam’s got a date with his dream girl, and Sophie finds herself in the hospital. Then there’s her father, who has a surprise that’s about to turn her world upside-down, and her little brother, who doesn’t seem to have any room for her in his life. While everyone else seems to be living life, Sophie is stuck in neutral.

Now, Sophie must come to terms with everything that’s holding her back in order to fight for what she wants before she loses the chance to turn her luck around.

Hilarious, sweet, romantic and touching, this book is absolutely delightful. Sophie wants her 33rd year of life to be better than the years before. She wants to take charge and make something of her life. She decides to tell her best friend, Sam, her true feelings for him. But when she reads an e-ma ...more

By Cheryl February 11, 2013

33 Valentines is a well-written, nicely paced romantic story with a lot of depth. There’s a compelling element of mystery to this story, too, with questions posed from the very beginning: why does Sophie hate February, and particularly Valentine’s Day, so much? How did her life get so off-track?

I could really relate to this book, although I have different reasons for disliking Valentines Day and February. Loved it! ...more

Sophie is a red hot mess. She has loved her best friend, Sam, for quite a while, but she is afraid to tell him. Just when she thinks she has the courage to do so, he tells her he has found the girl of his dreams. To Sophie, nothing could hurt worse than imagining she missed her chance with Sam. Now ...more

Sophie begins her least favorite month in just the way she should expect, in the emergency room with a broken left arm. And of course wouldn't you know it she's left handed, she had always taken pride being left handed. Now as if the impeding Valentine’s Day wasn't enough she's been sidelined with a ...more

Awww! I had to finish it today!
I'll write my rewiew tomorrow... But I have to say that I'm very happy that Sam broke up with Megan before the issue with Mery Ann and going back with Sophie even if he thought she wanted him as a friend (obviously he was mistaken lol)...

Good night readers!!!

By Angie February 14, 2015

It's weird to say I really liked this book (a strong 4.5 rating), but at the same time I think I had a lump in my throat and a box of Kleenexes that I liberally used for more than 3/4 of the story. The beginning immediately captured me with Sophie's humor and wit. I loved her close friendship with S ...more

By Eve January 21, 2013

"33 Valentines" starts out with a painful event for Sophie - she trips getting off of the bus and breaks her arm. But as the story progresses, you find out that she's equally as wounded that her best friend Sam - who she's realized she's in love with - has found his dream girl. She's convinced that ...more

By Andrea February 11, 2013

You know a book is going to be funny when the opening scene is the heroine in the ER with a broken arm. An arm that she broke while reading an email from a guy she invited to dinner.


And things just don't get better for the poor girl, at least not right away.

I think everyone has a month like Soph ...more

By Diane January 23, 2013

33 Valentines is a fun, smart story set in Boston during the gloomy month of February. Sophie hates February and Valentine's Day, but not for the usual reasons a person might dislike a winter month or sappy holiday. When she finds out Sam, her best friend and dream guy, has a date on Valentine's Day ...more

I received a copy of 33 Valentines by Stephanie Monahan in exchange for an honest review.

I adored this book! I liked that we didn’t get Sophie’s full story right away, but I didn’t find it annoying at all that we kept getting little hints and clues to her past, which unfortunately can happen someti ...more

By Jessie February 11, 2013

I really enjoyed reading 33 Valentines. I started at the end of a long, New England blizzard weekend. My only regret was I started too late so I couldn't finish it before I had to go back to work.

Stephanie Monahan writes with wit, a little bit of snark, and vivid descriptions so it is very easy to ...more

By Kathryn February 19, 2013

I totally loved this book! Sophie and Sam made a perfect couple, though it took some time for them to realize that. And I've always wondered about this new phenomenon of "Valentine's Day Hate"--it's just an innocent little holiday, right? But poor Sophie has had a run of bad luck each February, so I ...more

By Love N. Books March 06, 2013

So my smut-loving friends, there is no sex in this one. But if you are up for a sweet, romantic love story with a funny undertone.... This is for you. The book starts in the current day and as the story unfolds, you get pieces of history as to the story of "33 Valentines." At times you want to reach ...more

When I was received an email asking me if I would like to read Stephanie Monahan’s novel 33 Valentines it didn’t take me long to say yes. It’s not often that I’ll read a book based solely on its synopsis – usually it’s the cover or the author – but the synopsis for 33 Valentines really convinced me ...more

By D'Ann January 29, 2013

Saying that Sophie doesn't care for February is a bit like saying that it can get a little hot in Texas over the summer. If Sophie had her way, February would be removed from the calendar, and January would fade directly into March.

Her 33rd February gets off to a triumphantly grim start when she fin ...more

By Riki February 08, 2016

This book was the perfect Valentine’s Day read! Sophie is an amazing lead character and I just felt so bad for her as she struggled to find even ground in her hectic life. She’s the type of girl you just want to be friends with, and I loved seeing her get her happily ever after.

This novel is equal p ...more
