Rainbow Rowell Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder, coworkers at The Courier, know the newspaper monitors their office e-mail. But they still spend all day sending each other messages, gossiping about their coworkers, and baring their personal lives like an open book. Jennifer tells Beth everything she can’t seem to tell her husband about her anxieties over starting a family. And Beth tells Jennifer everything, period.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill still can’t believe that it’s his job to monitor other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be an Internet security officer, he pictured himself protecting the newspaper from dangerous hackers - not sending out memos every time somebody in Accounting forwarded an off-color joke to the person in the next cubicle. Lincoln is supposed to turn people in for misusing company e-mail, but he can’t quite bring himself to crack down on Beth and Jennifer. He can’t help being entertained - and captivated - by their stories. But by the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late for him to ever introduce himself. What would he say to her? “Hi, I’m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you?”
With snapping dialogue and irresistible charm, Rainbow Rowell transforms an ordinary IT guy into a lovable and endearing romantic hero and proves that falling in love never happens the way you plan it. Written with whip-smart precision and charm, Attachments is a fresh and energetic debut that marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in fiction.
Rainbow Rowell Bono met his wife in high school, Park says. So did Jerry Lee Lewis, Eleanor answers. I’m not kidding, he says. You should be, she says, we’re 16. What about Romeo and Juliet? Shallow, confused, then dead. I love you, Park says. Wherefore art thou, Eleanor answers. I’m not kidding, he says. You should be.
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, this is the story of two star-crossed misfits—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love—and just how hard it pulled you under.
Rainbow Rowell #1 New York Times bestselling author!
Simon Snow is the worst Chosen One who's ever been chosen.
That's what his roommate, Baz, says. And Baz might be evil and a vampire and a complete git, but he's probably right.
Half the time, Simon can't even make his wand work, and the other half, he starts something on fire. His mentor's avoiding him, his girlfriend broke up with him, and there's a magic-eating monster running around, wearing Simon's face. Baz would be having a field day with all this, if he were here--it's their last year at the Watford School of Magicks, and Simon's infuriating nemesis didn't even bother to show up.
Carry On is a ghost story, a love story and a mystery. It has just as much kissing and talking as you'd expect from a Rainbow Rowell story - but far, far more monsters.
Rainbow Rowell In Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, Cath is a Simon Snow fan. Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.
Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.
Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.
Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.
For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories? Open her heart to someone? Or will she just go on living inside somebody else’s fiction?
Rainbow Rowell Zwei gegen den Rest der Welt ...Sie sind zwei völlig verschiedene Außenseiter: Eleanor ist dick, hat wirre rote Locken und trägt weite Herren-T-Shirts. Park ist gutaussehend, zurückhaltend, Halb-Koreaner. Nur notgedrungen macht er im Schulbus für sie den Platz neben sich frei, liest seine Comics oder hört Musik. Eleanor ist froh, nur ignoriert statt gemobbt zu werden. Sie kommt aus einer desolaten Familie, Park aus einer gut bürgerlichen. Als sie beginnt, im Bus Parks Comics mitzulesen, entwickelt sich ein Dialog zwischen den beiden. Zögerlich tauschen sie Lieblingskassetten aus. Dass sie sich ineinander verlieben überwältigt und verwirrt beide.
Rainbow Rowell From the New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, comes a hilarious, heart-wrenching take on love, marriage, and magic phones.
Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it's been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply-but that almost seems beside the point now. Maybe that was always beside the point.
Two days before they're supposed to visit Neal's family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can't go. She's a TV writer, and something's come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her-Neal is always a little upset with Georgie-but she doesn't expect to him to pack up the kids and go without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she's finally done it. If she's ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It's not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she's been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts. . . .
Is that what she's supposed to do?
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?
Rainbow Rowell Simon Snow er den absolut værste udvalgte, der nogensinde er blevet udvalgt.
Det siger hans roommate Baz i hvert fald. Og det kan godt være, at Baz er en ondsindet vampyr, men han har jo ret! Halvdelen af tiden kan Simon ikke engang få sin tryllestav til at fungere - eller også sætter han ild til ting og sager. Hans mentor gør alt for at undgå ham, hans kæreste har slået op med ham, og der er et magi-ædende monster, som går rundt med Simons ansigt på. Baz ville have nydt alt dette, hvis han altså havde været her. Det er starten på deres sidste skoleår på Watford School of Magicks, og så har Simons plageånd ikke engang besværet sig med at dukke op.
"Carry On" er en spøgelseshistorie, en kærlighedshistorie og et mysterium. Der er lige så mange kys og lige så meget snak som i Rowells andre romaner - men der er mange flere monstre i den her!
Rainbow Rowells roman "Fangirl" handlede om pigen Cath, som brugte meget af sin tid på at skrive Simon Snow-fanfiction. Med "Carry On" får vi hele Caths historie om Simon Snow.
