Something Blue by Emily Giffin

Summary: Darcy Rhone appears to have a perfect life… perfect fiancé, perfect job, perfect friends, etc. Darcy has depended on her good looks, outgoing personality and her best friend her whole life. Which allowed her to be cunning and selfish to say the least. But that soon changes when her fiancé and best friend get together and Darcy is left completely alone with a baby on the way. Follow her journey of redemption and rediscovery when she flees the country to a childhood friend living in London.

Opinion:
*You can read this as a stand alone book but its basically a sequel to Something Borrowed.

I loved Something Borrowed (and the movie too)! I was told through instagram, when I posted my review on Something Borrowed that Something Blue was the sequel from Darcy’s point of view. Naturally I had to get the book and it did not disappoint! It took me three evening to finish reading this book because I could not put it down! I mean it! One night I was under the covers at midnight with my phone flashlight trying to not wake up my husband as I turned each page!

As always, I won’t include any spoilers but I HATED Darcy when I began reading this book. I hated her character from Something Borrowed because of how selfish and self absorbed she was. So for the author to write this book from Darcy’s point of view is brilliant! I gasped a few times reading this book, so many surprises! I found my self starting to feel sympathetic towards Darcy and even cheering for her as she tries to prove that people can change. Ok ok ok confusion, I teared up while reading towards the ending of the book.

Both books raise a lot of questions about friendship, infidelity, and forgiveness.

If you’ve watched Something Borrowed, the movie, then you probably saw the little teaser at the end…. so Emilly Giffin, I sure hope that Something Blue is in the works to be a movie as well!

If you’ve read either books or watched the movie Something Borrowed, let me know what your thought were in the comments!
