I totally fell into this novel, and it's forcing me to admit that I do not dislike epistolary novels. Which Brings Me to You is a story told in correspondence between a couple who meet and almost hook up at a wedding. They decide to confess all their relationship misdeeds to each other through letters and come clean before deciding to meet up again.
It sounds gimmiky and like a bad Owen Wilson / Kat Hudson romantic comedy, but it is so good. These letters get dark and very confessional and they stay honest. There's a good bit of humor thrown in for good measure too. Overall, I really enjoyed the letters - the real interaction between the characters didn't convince me near as much. Luckily for me, the book is 98% letters.
