Happy Friday Everyone!
Let’s take a moment to celebrate that we made it another week! I wanted to review a romantic comedy that I absolutely loved, and it was turned into a movie as well, that I loved as well! Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin is a laugh out comedy, about being in love with your best friend’s fiance.
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan.
Rachel has always been the consummate good girl—until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy’s fiancé. Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from. As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren’t always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness.
Something Borrowed is a phenomenal debut novel that will have you laughing, crying, and calling your best friend.”
Rachel is a young attorney who loves her best friend, and can tell Darcy anything. However, after one drunken night leads Rachel to end up in bed with Darcy’s fiance, Rachel realizes that this is something she can’t tell Darcy. Rachel plans on putting the incident behind her, but that is until she realizes that she has actual feelings for her best friends fiance. Rachel goes on a laugh out loud adventure to try and act like everything is still okay, but how long can she keep this a secret? Will Rachel be able to move on with her life and be happy for her friend or will one mistake make her lose her best friend forever?
Emily will have you on an emotional roller coaster, and you won’t want to get off it until the very end. This book was such an amazing thrill ride, and I also have to admit the movie wasn’t bad either. Once you read the book, you need to watch the movie, and see the characters come to life!
Happy Comedic Journey My Friends!
