Welcome back to Reading Corner Friday’s. Today I am going to talk about a book my sister got me into called Attachments by Rainbow Rowell.
By this books description you’d think this book sounds like it would be creepy, but it really is not. Its cute and romantic in a nerdy way. This book takes place in the 90’s. Right when emailing was hitting it big and way before MySpace and Facebook.
Lincoln, the main character is super sweet and kinda nerdy but in a sexy way. He has weekly Dungeon and Dragons meet ups with his friends. Super sweet to this old lady that works with him. His job at this company he works for is to basically snoop through his co workers emails. Why you ask? To make sure they are working and not sending personal emails out. Well he starts falling for someone through her emails and it gets really tricky from there. I don’t want to give away anything more than that.
Rainbow Rowell has you laughing and crying all in matter of minutes. Her story that follows Lincoln and the people he meets through this job has moments of being really silly and then BAM! You want to eat a carton of ice cream and cry for a bit.
If you get this story on Audible please just push through the girls voice while she reads it. It’s not the best but it actually fits the story. Then she totally grows on you.
Check out Rainbow Rowell and her story Attachments.
Beth and Jennifer work in the newsroom. They’re smart and funny, and best friends.
And Lincoln O’Neill is the guy who reads their email.
It’s not as bad as it sounds — it’s Lincoln’s job to read their email. Sort of. He was supposed to send them a warning. He should have sent it the first time he caught them breaking the company email rules. But they both seem so nice… he likes really them. Especially Beth.
By the time Lincoln realizes how much he feels for Beth, it’s too late to unread all of her personal messages. And it’s way too late to introduce himself. What would he say? “Hi, I’m the guys who reads your email, and, also, I love you …”
But he can’t just do nothing. Falling for Beth makes Lincoln realize he’s been doing nothing for far too long.
