I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

Attachments - Rainbow Rowell I found "Attachments" utterly captivating! It reminded me of the magic you feel when you fall in love with the person you're meant to be with for the rest of your life. Most people don't realize it, but true love is simple and heartfelt. It's not full of messy games and manipulation.

Lincoln was downright amazing and reminded me of my husband in too many ways to count. (Yes, I'm one of those sappy women who still gets stars in her eyes when she talks about her husband.) I also studied journalism in college, so I could totally relate to Jennifer and Beth. Their e-mails to each other made me giggle aloud at times.

In fact, all of the characters in this lovable book rang true to life and practically leapt off the page into my imagination. I couldn't help but smile while I was reading "Attachments" and am thoroughly looking forward to delving into more books by Rainbow Rowell!
