(Quick) Book Review: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "

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 . . . ?

I literally couldn't put this book down. It was the book that got me out of my almost two week reading slump. It was a phenomenal book that I just couldn't believe was a debut novel. It was just plain amazing. I can't say anything besides that. Amazing. Amazing. AH-MAZING!! 

I think Lincoln may be my favorite Rainbow Rowell character. He's so sweet and funny. I just couldn't help but fall in love with him! I did find his action a little creepy. I mean who wouldn't. However,  it was kind of endearing and cute too. He just couldn't help but read Jennifer and Beth's emails. They were funny and witty, I couldn't help but fall a little in love with them too! ;) 

My favorite part of this whole entire book was that Lincoln didn't fall in love with Beth because she was pretty or hot or whatever. Lincoln fell in love with Beth because she was smart, and funny, and witty and a good friend and sister. He fell in love with Beth, not Beth's looks. It was a truly beautiful and hilarious read and I'm so glad that I can finally say, "YES! You need to read that!!"
