Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Overview:
"Beth and Jennifer know their company monitors their office e-mail. But the women still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers at the newspaper and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can't seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period.
When Lincoln applied to be an Internet security officer, he hardly imagined he'd be sifting through other people's inboxes like some sort of electronic Peeping Tom. Lincoln is supposed to turn people in for misusing company e-mail, but he can't quite bring himself to crack down on Beth and Jennifer. He can't help but be entertained-and captivated- by their stories.

But by the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late for him to ever introduce himself. What would he say to her? "Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you." After a series of close encounters and missed connections, Lincoln decides it's time to muster the courage to follow his heart . . . even if he can't see exactly where it's leading him.

Written with whip-smart precision and charm, Attachments is a strikingly clever and deeply romantic debut about falling in love with the person who makes you feel like the best version of yourself. Even if it's someone you've never met."
My Thoughts:  I loved it and got my fill of chick lit! This is the author's, Rainbow Rowell, debut novel, and what an amazingly great debut it is.  This book alternates between Beth and Jennifer one chapter and Lincoln the next.  It is written in email format between Jennifer and Beth (while at work!!) and in traditional story format when it switches to Lincoln.  This is the best of both worlds.  The story moves along and pulled me in right from the beginning.  This is a very smart and witty book.  I can't wait to see what Rainbow Rowell's next book will be like, since I loved this one! 

Congratulations to Rainbow on such a fun, witty, pull you right in to the story, short chapters debut novel! You all know they are all so important to me!  Check out her website by clicking here.

Have a great week and hope you are enjoying what you are reading!

  1. I would almost call this one guy-lit as much as chick-lit since it focuses on Lincoln as much as the ladies. It was a lot of fun!
