Kindred Spirits was released in celebration of World Book Day, which I honestly had never heard of, where every year there are a few authors who write a short story that’s being sold in order to promote this day and reading in general.
I quickly want to thank Kat from Life and Other Disasters, since I won a copy of this book as part of her 3 years of blogging giveaway.
My first thoughts were: “A story about being a fan of Star Wars? I’m in.”
I hadn’t yet read a contemporary novel or even a YA one, so this one was a first in both cases. With this being a short story, you can’t really expect it to have a grand story that has a lot of elements to it. Still, Rainbow Rowell delivers a fun story that keeps you interested while not requiring a lot of thought. It’s a story that could have just as easily happen to me in real life, which made it very enjoying to read.

My last exam is coming up next week, so it’s the perfect time to start looking forward to the summer vacation. The good weather, traveling and loads of free time are things I’m in desperate need of. School has been extremely busy this year, as I just almost finished my first year in college, and I really need some time to catch up on sleep and all other sorts of things. In this post I’d like to take a look at all the things that I’m aspiring to read or watch this summer.
Yes Please – Amy Poehler
I’ve already started reading this quite a while ago, but I wasn’t able to continue reading due to having to read another book for school. Now that that’s over I’ll gladly reprise Yes Please. I’ve only read 36 pages (and the prologue) so far, but I was already really enjoying it. She’s hilarious and it’s fun to know she’s dealing with other people and situations.
Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn
I think it’s about time that I read this one. Gone Girl has garnered a lot of critical acclaim and it has been lauded by readers, so I guess that’s the most important recommendation you can get. The fact that I liked The Girl on the Train so much and that it is being called ‘the new Gone Girl’ should say something, right? I’m really excited to read this one, or perhaps devour is a better word, and then I can finally watch the movie as well.
