I am literally so excited to do this post!! I won this book- yes I WON IT– which I totally cannot believe!!! I’d never won a giveaway before!!! So first of all, I want to say a massive thank you to Kat @ Life and Other Disasters who hosted the giveaway on her site in celebration of reaching 500 followers! THANK YOU SO MUCH! And cos I don’t do this nearly enough, I want to tell you why you *need* to check out Kat’s blog- now- like RIGHT NOW!
Kat was one of the first bloggers I ever discovered (I can’t remember who discovered who first)- either way I am grateful to have found her corner of the internet! She literally has the *best* posts! Her reviews and discussions are brilliantly in depth. I also really love her Trailers You May Have Missed This Week- which has become my bible for catching up on the week’s new trailers. On top of that, she’s lovely to talk to and really supportive 🙂 I highly, highly recommend checking out her blog if you haven’t already!
Now I wanna get on to discussing Kindred Spirit by Rainbow Rowell- I’m gonna keep this short and sweet like this book. (In fact I’m gonna do it like a diary entry for each day, in the spirit of the book.)
I’m so excited for this- but a part of me might be buzzing about the fact that I just received this in the post. But also cos while I’m not a Star Wars superfan, I do really like the movies and this book is reminding me why.
I love how the book tackles the issue of justifying geekishness or nerdiness- because it’s a really interesting discussion for anyone that’s ever been called a “fake geek girl”. Once again, Rowell brings depth to her stories in a totally unexpected way.
Speaking of discussing interesting issues, like justifying geekish identity, I love the other important issues like who’s your favourite Star Wars character (mine’s Darth Vader- cos I’m a sucker for a redemption story- and yes I totally see it as a redemption story- even if that’s totally controversial cos he’s a genocidal maniac).
This is really hotting up- particularly as it starts talking about the Star Wars prequels (I couldn’t watch beyond 1- cos Anakin was ruining Darth Vader for me- and I couldn’t deal with that). Gosh I identify with Elena so much! Much more than I expected! Above all, I think that’s what this book does well- it’s a book for anyone and everyone that’s ever loved something- because it captures that feeling beautifully!
That ending is just perfect! I couldn’t stop laughing! Rainbow Rowell has done it again! Pure bliss 🙂 The only thing I wish was that it was longer!
Rating: 4 ½ bananas
