How I Found It: Goodreads/Amazon/Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park is one of my favorite books of all time. Since then, I have been focused on reading more novels by Rainbow Rowell, so I just accepted that I wanted all her books. This one was an impulse buy, which just happened to be seasonally fitting, so let’s get into it.


This short story is about having your crush kiss someone else on New Year’s Eve. We have projected the idea of getting a kiss to start the new year, and the farther into adulthood I go, the less and less I like this idea. Why do I have to kiss someone to be publicly accepted? I digress. This story follows 4 New Year’s Eve parties as Mags and Noel grow in their friendship. it is so incredibly sweet and cute and you should read it.

Kindred Spirits

This is for all the hardcore fans out there. Despite having bought tickets online, Elena went to go stand in line for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But when she gets there, she is disappointed to find only 2 other people in line. After 4 days in line, Elena gets close to her linemates, Troy and Gabe, and after become Pees-in-a-cup, they find lifelong friends in each other.

These are really easy and quick reads, and I totally recommend you read them!
