Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

I call Something Borrowed my gateway drug because Emily Giffin’s debut novel was my introduction into chick literature. I read this five summers ago, sitting in a leather chair in Border’s bookstore, waiting for my boyfriend to get off of work. The first chapter was absolutely amazing!

This is the story about two best friends: Rachel White and Darcy Rhone. Rachel, the good girl, has been friends with Darcy since they were in elementary school. Darcy has always been the type of girl who gets exactly what she wants, while Rachel sits in the background letting Darcy get all of the attention. Everything gets turned upside down when Darcy throws Rachel her 30th birthday party and Rachel ends up sleeping with Darcy’s fiancée, Dex. Rachel must decide if she will forget about her betrayal and remain the good friend she has always been or go after the one thing that is forbidden – pursuing a romantic relationship with Dex. As Darcy and Dex’s September wedding quickly approaches, things begin to heat up during the summer!

Needless to say I purchased the book that same night, unable to leave it behind in the store unfinished, with the help of my boyfriend’s company discount (Thanks babe!). Want more? Read the first chapter to Something Borrowed here, and let me know if you are more like Rachel or Darcy!

    Loved Loved Loved this one but I ended up liking Something Blue even more.
    I hope the movie won’t be a huge disappointment (they usually are)

      I completely understand how you feel about the upcoming movie. I have the same reservations. I am thrilled that Ginnifer Goodwin snagged the lead role because I loved her in He’s Just Not That Into You. We just have to keep our fingers crossed, don’t we?
