Rainbow Rowell

attachmentsI read this because I really enjoyed Fangirl which is one of the best YA books I've read in ages.
This in contrast is a pretty mainstream romance novel.
It's set in 1999 and it's partly told through email exchanges. The conceit being that the protagonist works in the IT department of a newspaper with a strict email filter that he monitors for violations of policy.
Reading the emails between an editor and the film critic he falls for one of the two friends.
There's something very creepy about the premise and it makes it hard to really believe the pretty straightforward way that things resolve.
Otherwise this is a very charming read. It's nowhere near as good as Fangirl but certainly worth reading if you like a fluffy romance.

Rating: B+
