Something Blue by Emily Griffin
I very much so liked the idea that this was all told in Darcy’s voice. For probably the first half of the book my mouth was hanging open in shock over the blatant rude tendencies of Darcy’s character. I was shaking my head at her observations of other people and the pure shallowness that came with every thought she had. The second half of the book, when she moved to London I was thrilled to see the character transformation that took place because of Ethan. By the end of the book I was in tears, so happy to have closure of the journey with Darcy, Rachel, Dex, and Ethan. There are many books out there that leave you wanting for more but never deliver. This was excellent read.
Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin
I know it is a little behind the times so to say, and not only has this book been read by millions, it has been seen as a movie by even more….but I just came into a little birthday money for my 25th and I spent it in 5 minutes on all of Griffin’s books.
Truth be told I have always been a book person. Movie versions never seem to live up to my expectations and the feeling of being in a book could never be replaced by watching a movie.
This book was simply written, which is not a bad thing by any means. I love being able to lose myself in a book without having to analyze everything to make sure I am not misunderstanding the author’s intentions.
There was something so painful, yet hopeful about Rachel falling in love with Dex. I could feel my heart skip a beat when Rachel’s did, and that feeling is like nothing else. The crafting of the characters was so believable, I think I knew a few Darcy’s when I was in high school.
I am just going to keep this short and sweet, but Emily Griffin…what an amazing writer 🙂
