Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

I'm so glad I listened to Paranormal Indulgence and picked up Attachments as soon as I could. I was looking for light and funny and that's exactly what I got. Once I picked up Attachments I didn't put it down til I was finished. It was that good.
It's 1999. Beth and Jennifer work for the last newspaper to give their employees internet access. Upper management is worried that employees will use the company email for their own purposes and hire Lincoln, to monitor employee's emails. Lincoln reads the emails that are flagged by the security software. Beth and Jennifer's emails are frequently caught by the software because they email each other all day long about their lives.
I loved Beth and Jennifer. They email each other about everything. I remember when email was the place to share everything. Both have their problems but they are there for each other. The very definition of best friends.
Lincoln is adorable. A D&D playing, computer geek, Lincoln lives with his mom. He was so lost at the beginning. I enjoyed his progression.
I read much of Attachments aloud to Tai. He agreed that the writing was witty. I did want to crawl into Attachments and live. I've recommended Attachments to two friends who have enjoyed it. I highly recommend it. I can't wait to read Rowell's other books. Others who have shared their thoughts on Attachments: Paranormal Attachments, The Readventurer, Wrapped Up In Books, The Happily Ever After..., Chrisbookarama, and Queen of Contemporary.


  1. Well, after reading your review it looks like I have to read this book! It sounds so cute and a really great summer read. I love a well written witty book.

  2. Wasn't this the cutest book? I adored it and cannot wait to read more of her books. I'm going to try to get to Eleanor & Park later this summer.

  3. This sounds like such a good read! I hadn't heard of it until now but I definitely want to read it after reading your thoughts :)

  4. I so want to read this one!!!

  5. Every time I go to Barnes & Nobles this seems to be on the clearance rack. I've thought about picking it up several times, although haven't yet, but maybe it's about time!


Shiny! I love comments.
