Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin


Darcy and Rachel have been best friends since they were  young. But beautiful Darcy has always been the one who gets everything she wants, and Rachel has somewhat resented her for this all along. When Rachel introduced Darcy to a friend of hers from law school, Dex, the two fall in love and plan to get married. This leads Darcy to name Rachel as the lucky winner of the Maid of Honor title. And she finds her life revolving around making Darcy’s wedding–and life–perfect.

But what happens when Rachel and Dex discover they have stronger feelings for each other than they originally thought? Rachel is stuck with the decision of what is more important: staying loyal to her best friend, or following true love.

Something Borrowed will have you sympathizing with both selfish, princess Darcy, and husband-stealing Rachel. It leads you on a journey of love’s hardest times, and friendship’s deepest struggles. Something Borrowed is followed up by Giffin’s second book, appropriately titled Something Blue. The book is just as good, if not better than its predecessor, and follows the life of Darcy…but the review of that will come later. Wouldn’t want to spoil what happens in ‘Borrowed!

  1. I recently read another book by this author called “Love the one you’re with” and it was pretty good. I am very picky about the types of book I read but I am starting to like this author- Of course during school I have no time to read books but over break I plan on picking up another one of hers to read and this one sounds really good!

  2. Yeah I just read “Love the One You’re With” recently too, and loved it. But if you liked that one you should definitely read “Something Borrowed” and “Something Blue.” She has a new one coming out next spring, “Heart of the Matter,” that I’m excited to read as well.
