Jess mentioned one of our favorite author’s books, Something Borrowed, in last week’s Book Talk. I loved reading this book, but I loved reading the sequel, Something Blue, even more! Some have said that sequels are never as good as the first, but in my opinion, this just gets even better. This book is written in Darcy’s point of view. Now remember, Darcy is the flashy, beautiful, attention wanting (kind of a spoiled brat) best friend to Rachel, the hard-working, good girl type. It was hard for me at times to like Darcy while reading Something Borrowed. She’s very childish and self-centered. Well, I don’t want to give too much away, but in Something Blue, Darcy is pregnant and flees to London to stay with her high school friend, Ethan, who really doesn’t have much for her, considering her selfish ways. Darcy has a huge awakening in this story and you begin to see a different side of her. I actually sort of began to love her, like a lot. It is a very heartfelt story that has many situations that are relatable, which is what makes us love a book so much, right? We can relate to it and connect it with our lives. All Emily Giffin novels do that to me.
Here a few more pictures of when Jess and I went to hear Emily Giffin speak this past summer! I think she kind of loved us 🙂
