Almost Midnight by Rainbow Rowell Book Review


I don’t know what to say about this book…. I was just disappointed… I was told my heart would swoon because… hey *jazz hands* romance! But in all honesty I felt none of that. Just this big “meh” feeling. Everyone has said amazing things about Almost Midnight like “Oh one of the short stories is a cute Star Wars romance” and yes there was but I found nothing “cute” about it. All I got out of it was how bad peeing in a cup is and how camping out (in this case the Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens) is a bad idea. The first short story however I found a bit jumpy going through 2011 to 2015 about New Years Eve kissing and finding love. I didn’t feel anything towards the characters but all in all the writing was mediocre.

ACTUAL RATING: 3.1 STARS basically unfazed
