No regrets

Attachments - Rainbow Rowell

What's not to love about this book! It's been a while since I've finished a book feeling as giddy as I do right now. Attachments,unlike a lot of romantic stories or typical "chick lit", has a lot of character growth and I feel it's very easy to identify with some of the characters' own insecurities throughout their journey. I love how Rainbow Rowell touches on the theme and the importance of developing self esteem and trying to take chances that promote living life in the now and being passionate about it.


As someone who has recently finished college and has just entered the work force I feel I can easily relate to Lincoln's own confusion about what to do with his life and I believe his doubts are natural for anyone. No one is born and set on a clear path, although some things seem like fate, we must always give ourselves a little push and stop being afraid to try and grow up.


I feel like the story itself is quite an original tale of romance, even though it also follows traditional stereotypes. I really recommend for people to read this, specially if you are feeling a little lost...sometimes vicarious motivation can be just the little push you need to move forward.
