Rowan Quote

“I spent centuries wandering the world, from empires to kingdoms to wastelands, never settling, never stopping– not for one moment. I was always looking towards the horizon, always wondering what waited across the next ocean, over the next mountain. But I think… I think that whole time, all those centuries, I was just looking for you.”

Beth Quote

“It’s really my pleasure and honor to get to love you and be loved by you. Thank you for thinking so highly of me and for wanting me. When I wake up you’re my first thought of the day, as well as every thought after that. You’re exactly as you should be and I love you for being mine. I don’t want to ever have to know what it’s like to not have you in my life.”

Romulus Quote

“Darling, you’re perfect, no matter what anyone else says, and even if you can’t see it yourself, I can. I’ll always be your’s and I’ll always be here for you as you light up the way. You are magnificent, everything you do is excellent to me, and there’s no one else I’d rather have than you.”

Romulus Quote

“Beth beats the ocean breeze. Her love is incomparable to anything known to man, and I’ll never give it up. She is everything amazing to me, she has stopped my suffering, and I owe her my life for it. My heart, mind, soul, and body are all her’s now, and I’m proud to be able to call her mine.”

Review #21

Rainbow Rowell sure knows how to write a book.

Attachments was a laugh-out-loud, sweet, endearing, and shameless romantic comedy that had me cheering for Lincoln and Beth by the first few chapters. Every comment from Jennifer, every joke from Beth, and every hopeless act of love from our beloved IT guy made me want to jump into this story and meet them all. Although awkward and nerdy, Lincoln is a hero! He fell in love with a girl who he had never talked to or seen, just by reading her personal emails that she sent to her best friend. How sweet is that? Okay, it’s sounds really creepy when you put it like that, but Lincoln and Beth were meant to be no matter how they found each other. Jennifer and Beth’s friendship was hilarious, and I absolutely loved how Lincoln made friends with Doris (Or was it the other way around?). Rainbow Rowell has written some of my favorite books of all time, and Attachments is definitely now one of them. Thank you to her for writing a story of love that didn’t start face to face.

With Smiles,
