Book Review: Something Borrowed

May 17, 2011

Once I saw the movie trailer, I knew I would love this book. I proceeded to look it up online at and half and hour and $50 later, I had ordered a truck load of books, including Something Borrowed.


From the back cover:

Rachel White is the consummate good girl. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules. Since grade school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy’s fiancé, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren’t always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.

I absolutely loved the book! In fact, I loved it so much that I read it in one day! I just couldn’t put it down. It was an easy, fast read. It would be perfect for a day at the beach. Or maybe even just a rainy day inside. Either way, I highly recommend it. I’m planning on getting the rest of Emily Giffin’s books in (hopefully) the near future.

I cannot wait to see the movie and see how they adapted it. I have a feeling the movie will be a favorite of mine.

Has anyone else read Something Borrowed or saw the movie? What did you think?
