48HBC: Something Borrowed

I've finished by sixth book and have hit the 25 hour mark!

I started Something, Borrowed on audiobook, but got so pulled in to the story that when I got back from work, I grabbed my book copy and kept reading. This is adult chick lit, but I love how Emily Giffin turns the story upside down. Rachel is a good girl who always follows rules, but on the eve of her 30th birthday, she wakes up in bed with her best friend's fiance. Usually Rachel's character is someone you would cheer against, but you cheer for her in this one. And Darcy, the best friend, is pretty awful! I really enjoyed it, both on CD and reading it, and am looking forward to picking up Something Blue, which tells the story of Darcy.

I'm going to make the blog rounds and then try and figure out what to read next.


  1. If you liked this one you definitely should pick up Something Blue. It's Darcy's story and it was my favorite of the two.

  2. I absolutely adore Something Borrow, but Something Blue grew on me when I read it the second time. So you should pick it up! :)

  3. Wow! You are doing a terrific job and have read so many good books! I need to have my own challenge to get caught up on my reading. I was happy that I finally got a couple of hours in my hammock this afternoon to finish a book.

    I always enjoy your reviews and opinions. I've found lots of great stuff through you. I look forward to many more. Congrats on the challenge!

  4. You are doing great, getting so many books read. *Rah Rah* keep going!!

  5. You are really rocking this 48-hour challenge. :-) This looks like a feast of good books!

  6. Keep up the good job! You can totally get to the 48 hour mark. :D :D

  7. I'm making the blog rounds. You are doing a great job!

  8. I have wanted to read Giffin--glad that so many other people like her as well. Thanks fir visiting ReadSpace and for conversation on twitter. Keep Reading!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
