A Year of Blind Dates

A Year of Blind Dates by Megan Carson

Goodreads summary:
Megan Carson went on her first real date at age 27. Some might call her a late bloomer. Her first real relationship lasted about three months, and though Megan did not love Chris, she was heart broken when they broke up. She grieved the loss of the relationship, but even more she grieved the loss of who she was in the relationship. She had never met “Megan the Girlfriend,” and once she did, Megan really liked her—and when she was gone, she wanted her back! So what did Megan do? She joined a dating service. A Year of Blind Dates follows Megan’s dating adventures in Southern California as she searches for Mr. Right, not just Mr. Right Now. As her “ideal guy” changes over time, the one thing that is never negotiable is her desire to find a man with a deep spiritual side. But can she have the “total package” without compromising her strong faith? Can Megan trust the dating service to deliver a man of God who will make her laugh and treat her well? This is the story of Megan’s search for the man of her dreams, and the good, bad and really, really bad dates along the way.

My review:
This is not your typical nonfiction book, and it is not a self-help book or book about relationship advice. It is simply a story of Megan's journey through dating good guys and bad guys, and learning what she wants in a guy along the way. She discusses how she grew in her relationship with the Lord through this experience even though she is still single. It was a very funny, entertaining book that I would recommend reading. If you like all of your books to have a specific point though, you might want to skip this one.

4 stars.


  1. My teen daughter just finished reading (and really enjoyed!) an eBook called Hear by Jacqueline Abelson. Great plot, interesting characters and a real message of self– empowerment. Here’s the link:
