From the New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed comes a novel that shows how someone with a 'perfect life' can lose it all—and then find everything.
Darcy Rhone thought she had it all figured out: the more beautiful the girl, the more charmed her life. Never mind substance. Never mind playing by the rules. Never mind karma.
But Darcy's neat, perfect world turns upside down when her best friend, Rachel, the plain-Jane "good girl," steals her fiancé, while Darcy finds herself completely alone for the first time in her life...with a baby on the way.
Darcy tries to recover, fleeing to her childhood friend living in London and resorting to her tried-and-true methods for getting what she wants. But as she attempts to recreate her glamorous life on a new continent, Darcy finds that her rules no longer apply. It is only then that Darcy can begin her journey toward self-awareness, forgiveness, and motherhood.
Emily Giffin's Something Blue is a novel about one woman's surprising discoveries about the true meaning of friendship, love, and happily-ever-after. It's a novel for anyone who has ever, even secretly, wondered if the last thing you want is really the one thing you need.

Second in series. This one follows Darcy whose fiance left her in first book. She goes to London pregnant to ?visit? old friend Ethan. Bears twin boys and marries Ethan.

I recall enjoying this book the first time I read it, but my tastes have changed considerably since then, and this now leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

Audiobook, via Audible. Excellent narration by Christine Marshall, though. ( )

I first read this a couple of years ago when I picked it up at a charity store, so I recently wanted to reread a book that was fun to sort of help with the reading I will have to for my current semester. I loved it then, and I still love it now. I honestly did not like Something Borrowed very much, I don't know why that is considering the type of person Darcy is but I think it has to do with all the cheating. Plus, Rachel and Dex were not my favorite couple. The beginning of this book was not as good as I remember it, but I plowed through it and eventually really liked it.

First of all, Darcy, she's spoiled and selfish and a little vain but as Darcy continues to mention her life and show flashbacks of her childhood you can start to see why she is the way that she is. As soon as she gets to London and stays with Ethan things start to pick up and after a nasty fight, realizes she has to change. I love the way Giffin writes this change because it isn't a sudden thing but it seems to be gradually and naturally in a way I can see happening if Darcy was a real character.

I also really loved Ethan, which is probably why I liked this book so much considering he is in this a lot more. The romance in this book as happens gradual and you start to see the change in both of those characters and the interactions they have. While nothing happened right away, and I loved that there is no Insta-love, I really wanted to lock them in a room or smash their mouths together. Despite how long it took for them together it was worth it.

The ending also perfectly tied everything up, and I don't think I ever remembered loving an ending more than this one. ( )

I really liked this one. It was fun to see the main character develop and change through the book. ( )

maybe I didn't like Darcy too much, therefore book two being from her perspective...just couldn't love it as much! I am a Rachel fan! ( )
