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! :)
