Midnights is the story of Noel and Mags, who meet at the same New Year’s Eve party every year and fall a little more in love each time . . .
Kindred Spirits is about Elena, who decides to queue to see the new Star Wars movie and meets Gabe, a fellow fan.
Midnights was previously published as part of the My True Love Gave to Me anthology, edited by Stephanie Perkins and Kindred Spirits was previously published as a World Book Day title. (Via Goodreads)
This is my first ever book that I read of Rainbow Rowell’s and I am really very pleased to have started with this particular one! Almost Midnight has two short stories in it – Midnights and Kindred Spirits. Both of them are really cute, fluffly and light reads.
Both the stories are on teenage romance. The first one – Midnights – is about two best friends and their encounters around every New Year’s eve… And the second one – Kindred Spirits – is about an Asian girl and her crazy love for the Star Wars series; camping and waiting in a line for the new Star Wars movie release with two other strangers of similiar likings…
The author writes the stories in such an ease. They are simple to read and you really connect with the stories. They make you go awwwww.. 🙂 It also has cute illustrations which makes reading this book fun! You can easily read this within few hours, the language is simple. Definitely kids and teens even adults can read this book. I would definitely recommend you pick up this sweet book for you or any kids around you!
