Eva Perino is single and proud of it. So proud, in fact, that she regularly boasts about it in her blog, “Why I Love Singlehood.” But upon learning of her ex-boyfriend’s engagement, Eva discovers her foundation is weaker than her façade. So begins a clumsy (and occasionally uproarious) search for love as she secretly joins an online dating site, tries her hand at speed dating, and gets involved with one of the regulars at her coffee shop, The Grounds. But the self-prescribed “experiment” quickly unravels as Eva witnesses the trials and tribulations of her best friend Minerva’s marriage, her sister’s suburban family, her manager Norman’s possible crush on her, and the one guy she can’t seem to stop thinking about. Soon, Eva’s simple search for a date becomes a deeper exploration of love — sexual, platonic, and familial — and a powerful examination of who (or what) is the true love of her life. Sparkling with warmth and wit, Why I Love Singlehood is a delicious and insightful must-listen for anyone - single or otherwise - who has ever been stymied by love. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenna | 2/10/2014

    " I finished this book some time ago (don't remember when but it was still cold at night) but just realized I had neglected to write a review. I recall having some really good things to say about it, but they escape me now. I mostly remember completely relating to all about singlehood [the good, the bad, and the funny]. It's not high literature and the end is about what you expect, but it's cute, clever, and fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 2/8/2014

    " As a former college instructor-turned-coffee shop owner myself, I was particularly interested in Eva and her experiences. I enjoyed the story and appreciated the inspirational message directed at single people. On a side note, Eva certainly has no problem finding intelligent, attractive men who are interested in her (she has a "club" of admirers); Eva must be a spectacular woman! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Samone Black | 2/7/2014

    " It was a quick cheap trashy novel to fill in the time... not as bad as I thought it might be, but not really up to my usual standards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matty | 2/3/2014

    " the perfect read on my vacation! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mason Thomas | 2/2/2014

    " "Accidental" Kindle purchase made by Maddie and Payton. Why not try it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlene | 1/21/2014

    " Excellent for a "beach read". Eva, (pronounced Ay-vah) thinks that she is perfectly happy being single. So much so that she begins a blog about why singlehood is fabulous. Then, out of nowhere, her ex, who she is now "friends" with, announces his engagement and Eva begins to question several things about herself, life, and love. Hysterical, laugh out loud moments. Recommend for light reading to good freinds. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 1/18/2014

    " I enjoyed the characters and their interaction. Eva owns a coffee shop and loves to bake. What can be better? She has great friends that frequent the coffee shop. She seems to love being single but things change when she decides to start dating and report it on her blog. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tina | 1/14/2014

    " Possible choice for Reader's Choice (Staff pick) for next year. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jac | 1/2/2014

    " Nice and light. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria S | 12/17/2013

    " Very cute, easy to ready chick-lit book. Nice break from some of the heavy stuff I read. No deep character development, no deep story developement, just a 'light movie' type book. Something nice to take to the beach this summer! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 12/15/2013

    " Hmmm...good, funny, made me hungry for coffee and really good chocolate cookies... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Max Trumble | 12/11/2013

    " Started off with about a million characters thrown at us right away. Just went on and on about boring relationships that had nothing to do with the story. And the "website blogs" that tried to hard to be Sex in the City failed miserably. I couldn't finish it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittany | 12/6/2013

    " I enjoyed and could relate to many things she was saying, being single myself. I don't know that I would have normally picked this book up on my own, but I read it for book club and I enjoyed it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sherese | 11/15/2013

    " What was I thinking - why is it so hard to write good chicklit? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 T. | 9/12/2013

    " I loved it. I love the cover, too. I love coffee. Eva is somewhat of a mess, but an entertaining one. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Veronika Kaufmann | 5/5/2013

    " it's rather boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 2/23/2013

    " Definitely entertaining (and hit a little too close to home sometimes) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katri | 1/13/2013

    " 2.5 stars. It was okay. Don't need to read or think about it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 1/4/2013

    " I really related to the main character in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica Kuntz | 12/19/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book! It follows very easily, and I like being able to relate to the main character. Its cast of characters is great, and varied. It's a good, nice read, especially great as an escape from everyday life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda Bates | 12/15/2012

    " I loved the book. Especially the Jan and Dean and the Spencer and Tracy references. "
