You know, I love the way you write reviews Juju. Without posting a full synopsis and going into too much detail you manage to capture my attention and make me want to read this book. I'm not over 30 yet (getting close!), but I remember the 90s. Aw, the cartoons, tv shows, etc then. *Nostalgia* Hope your week is going well so far chica!
Awwwwww thank you. *hug*Ah the 90s. They feel SO not long ago to me. I hope you're having an awesome week too sweetie.
That's the only one of Rowell's books I haven't read but I sure want to. I love her work!
Ooooo you must.So which is your fav so far?
Wow great review!I have not read any of her books!*quickly googling her now*
Yay! :) I think you'll love her.
I LOOOOOOVED Attachments, so it makes me SO happy that you did, too! I wasn't crazy about Eleanor & Park, but it's been a huge hit in the blogosphere so I'm definitely the exception there. I recently purchased Fangirl, and I'm really excited to read it. I'm hoping I'll love it as much as I loved this one!
Great minds think alike. I love when we have books in common.Oooooo good to know on E&P. I can't wait for your review of Fangirl.
She sounds like someone I need to give a whirl. I am not a fan of the infidelity but it sounds like the book was strong enough to withstand it!
Yes. You totallllly should. And the infidelity is pretty much a minor part of the story.I think you'll totally enjoy the banter.
I feel like I've totally failed at responding to your comments in the past week! I just finished Fangirl, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it (I'm totally of the Harry Potter gen though, so I guess it makes sense). Great character, and totally sympathized because my first year of college was dreadful (beer leaking through my ceiling etc). Glad you liked this one, I will be adding it to my list post-haste
Oh no worries sugar! :) I can't wait to read Fangirl.Yay! And major points for using post-haste. I wish that term would come back in vogue.
I love how you write your review! Wonderful post :)Lauren,http://www.atouchofsoutherngrace.blogspot.com/
This looks like a fun read! I don't think I've ever seen a bad review of this author's work.
I know right? I bet they are rare. :)
I am so happy to hear you loved it (I love your enthusiasm!) I have already heard many amazing things about it and it's very high on my wishlist. Love 90's references so that sounds right up my alley!
Ah, the 90s. I feel old.
Oh sugar! Never. Unless you're like me and the 90s feel like just yesterday. LOL
I'm with Charlotte. Feeling majorly old here.
I prefer seasoned. ;)
I bought a copy of this novel and now can't wait to read it!
Yay! :) I can't wait to hear what you think.
AHhhh! I need to read this Juju! I loved Fangirl (my first Rainbow book) and now I'm on a mission to read everything else, so I need this one and Eleanor + Park. So glad you loved Attachments!
You're like me then. :) I SO need E&P too. Thanks for stopping by sweetie. I always love your visits.
Never heard of Rainbow Rowell, but she sounds like a fantastic read :)
She is. :)
I want to read this one! I envy people in the UK, since it's on sale for them today.
OOooo it is! I like the UK cover too. It's kinda fun.
PS I heart your avy.
Sounds like another book by Robin Rowell that I have to add to my reading list. I have Fangirl so will probably be reading it first.
Oooo that one is suppose to be awesome. I need it. Enjoy!
It sounds like an awesome book. I want to get it.http://www.averysweetblog.com/
Yes! Do. She's awesome.
I really NEED to read this. I adored Rainbow & Park and Fangirl, so I'm sure I'm going to love this one. So happy to hear you loved it, and I really hope you like her YA books too when you read them. Wonderful review! :-)
I really do look forward to trying them.Thank you sweetie. :)
I have loved every book of hers that I have read!!
Have you read them all? :)
I have repeatedly heard this said about this author!
She's the bomb. Showed my age again. ;)
Yep. Pretty much I *need* to read this. Like, yesterday.
I have not heard of this author before. How do you always find the neatest, quirkiest reads?
No? I'm so honored to have introduced you. I would venture to say she's quickly becoming like a cult fav among book bloggers I think. And thank you sweetie. I must admit, if it looks cute and quirky I'm usually sold. :)
Now I must read this!
Yes please :)
This is a totally you book, I understand you loving it. I want to read Fangirl also. Not my kind of read but I did love it.
Ha a me book huh? I like that. You made me smile.
I bought this one a while ago on a whim and gobbled it up! I loved Lincoln and Beth. :)
RR writing is totally gobbleable isn't it? :)
I LOVED Eleanor and Park, so I will definitely have to read this one. Thanks for the review!
Yay! :) My pleasure.
I'm listening to Fangirl at the moment and it's pretty amazing as well. Will definitely move on to Attachments after this one!
Ooooo I'm so debating the audios. I love audios but I LOVE reading her dialogues.
Thanks for the awesome review! Actually, all of your reviews make me want to read the book... so many books .... so little time!~Liz
Thank you. Awwww *hug*
This author is new to me but I remember the 90's quite well and love pop culture references. thanks ju-ju!Hope baby, hubby, and house are all splendid :)
Yay. I hope you try it. :) We're are doing awesome thank you.I hope you, your honey, your job, and Kona are doing fab as well.
I have Fangirl and I know everyone LOVES Eleanor & Park but I haven't seen much about Attachments. Sounds like another incredible read by the author.
I know right? I hear nothing but awesomeness about E&P. :) I'm looking forward to it.
Did I tell you I love your new header? :) I'm over 30 and I need some chicklit soon. My reading has been way too heavy lately. (Hope all's well, Juju :) )
You haven't. But thank you. I'm honored. I looove your header. You should SO try this one.We are awesome thank you. Busy. I promise an update soon. Thanks for checking on me. :)
I think I will finally get my chance to read my first Rainbow Rowell book soon! (Probably Fangirl because it's basically the story of my life). So glad your first Rainbow experience went well!! I can't wait for this witty writing everyone is going on about.
Ha! Enjoy. I can't wait for your review.
Oh I loved this one. It is such a sweet lovely romance - just my kind of book. You should read Eleanor and Park next - it is wonderful too. I can't wait to pick up Fangirl next.
I'm so gonna. I can't wait. Good luck Fangirl. I'm sure it will be delightful.
I do love a witty funny romance. Will have to look out for this book at the stores!
Oh yes do :)
This sounds really cute!
I really think you'd like it. :)
I am yet to read any Rainbow Rowell and I kick myself every time I see a review. She seems right up my alley.
I love boos that are clever and witty! ;)
Me too :)
haha, I meant *books
Boos was pretty cute too. ;)
sounds like a very fun read, I'd better book mark this one for later. thanks for stopping by today. How are you and the little whimsy?
Yes you so should. :)I love popping by. We are doing very good. Busy. Trying to settle into our new place. Thank you for asking. :) How's your clan?
Thanks doll! A happy hump day to you too.
I have never seen this book before, it sounds like a book that I would love. Thanks for letting my know about it, I am putting it on my TBR list right now!
Yes! I think you would. YAY!
Aww, so glad to know you enjoyed Attachments! I was living in Omaha when it was first published and she (being a local author) had signed a few copies at the local Barnes & Noble, so I have one...but I still haven't read it! I've heard nothing but wonderful things about her books so I'm looking forward to it. (:
Oh my goodness. You lucky duck. What a treat! :)
Sounds like my kind of book and during my time period! Hey JuJu! Just wanted to pop in and say hello to you. It's been a while, but I do think about you all. I hope all is well in the world of Whimsy, and that Mr. and Baby Whimsy are taking good care of you and vice versa!
Hi sweetie! I've missed you. I hope you're ok. *hug* We Whimsys are doing awesome thank you. You take care of you too sugar. *hug* Come back soon, k?
Haven't read it yetam I the only one?I really need to get a hold of it... and read!
You're not the last but you should totally get it. :)
From all I've heard about this (new to me) author, I can't wait to read her books. And remembering the 90's? Heck, I was married with 3 kids by then :) Thanks for sharing.
Ha ;) Then it's perfect for you. I do hope you'll try it. Thanks for stopping by.
I'm on the hunt for new library books-- any suggestions?
What are you in the mood for? :)
Hey this sounds interesting, I am looking for something new to read thanks for posting.Ali of Dressing Ken
My pleasure. Enjoy! :)
Thanks for coming by.
I really need to check out this author...EVERYONE raves!!
Yes do! I think you will love the dialogue as much as I did.
I've been hearing so much about Rainbow Rowell lately, I really need to pick up one of her books! This one sounds really awesome, love that you found it witty and that it had you smiling! Also, got to love good dialog! Thanks so much Juju! :)
Yes! And then pass it on to your mom. She will love her too.
Can honestly say I've heard the same thing about this author's work before. Definitely on my to read list!
I've heard such amazing things about this author--so much that I'm worried that she's too hyped up and I won't be able to enjoy her, but I seriously dont' remember reading any negative reviews, especially of this book. Need to get on these, stat!Wendy @ The Midnight Garden
Oh no! I know what you mean. Hype can be bad. However, I reallly think you'll like her.:)Now the question is which one should you start with?
Eleanor and Park was pretty amazing. It really was one of those books where I wondered where'd it had been all my life. It was just beautiful. I have Fangirl on my desk now but I have a few to finish up before I get to it.
Ooooo what a way to put that. You have me thinking I need to grab it sooner rather than later.
I'm long overdue to do my post on the event I went to with her as speaker. I am listening to Fangirl! LOVE IT!!!!! Read Eleanor and Park, will definitely hit up Attachments next! She inspired me to do NaNoWriMo!
You're writing? OMG how exciting!!!!
