For Flashback Wednesday, I'm reviewing Rainbow Rowell's Attachments. I decided to read this after absolutely falling in love with Fangirl, and I'm so, so glad that I did!
Hardcover, 323 pages

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.
By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.
What would he say . . . ?
Quick fire review:
So when I got the opportunity to read Attachments, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. However, the plot sounded cute, and I will always love Rowell's writing style regardless of the content, so I decided to give it a go.
I'm glad that I took the risk, because I ended up absolutely loving Attachments. It's a quiet, charming, heartwarming story of love, friendship and taking chances, and I wholeheartedly recommend that everyone read it ASAP.
About the author:
Rainbow lives with her husband and two sons in Omaha, Nebraska. Right at this moment, she is probably arguing with someone about something that doesn't really matter in the big scheme of things -- or trying to figure out how Sherlock faked his death.
