Review: "Attachments" by Rainbow Rowell

Title: Attachments Author:  Rainbow Rowell Publication:  2012 Genre: Romance, Adult, Fiction, Contemporary Stars: 3.9/ 5


Synopsis 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 wa…

July Book Haul 2017

Image
Hello Bookworms. This book haul mostly contains books I bought with the gift cards I got for my birthday and some reduced books from my favorite online shop. I’m also getting myself prepared for autumn. Therefore, I ordered Riding the Bullet, Pet Sematary, my most favorite Stephen King book, and The Outsiders by S.E.Hinton. Furthermore, I had the misfortune that my pre-ordered copy of All That She Can See by Carrie Hope Fletcher was delivered one and a half weeks after the release. But now it’s mine  and I’m happy.
Title: All That She Can See Author: Carrie Hope Fletcher Genre: Magical Realism, Contemorary, YA, Adult, Romance, Fiction Published: 2017

Synopsis Feelings are part of life - feelings are life. If you take away what people feel, you take away anything meaningful. Wanting to diminish the evil in this world is a good cause, one I have fought for the majority of my life, but not like this . . .
Cherry has a hidden talent. She can see things other people can't and she decided a long…

Synopsis Veronica doesn't think she's going crazy. But why can't anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.
But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.
Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna's great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica's daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly a…

May & June Wrap Up

Image
Hello Bookworms. I have absolutely no idea what is going on. At the beginning of May, I started "The Second Coming" but after the first half of the book I ended up in a massive reading slump. Than I started "About a Dragon " by G.I.Aiken but I put it back down, because I wasn't in the mood for fantasy porn.  And last but not least, I was looking forward to read "Bitterblue" but in the end, it took me the whole month to finish it.
However, I have the feeling that it's going to get better now, that I'm reading some summer books
