It’s not always about Fashion…
What comes with Hurricane season here in Florida… is a lot of rain! Sometimes it’s fun not to get all glammed up and just throw on some comfy clothes and take advantage of those rainy days catching up with a great book. I just finished two of Emily Griffin’s books within a week. Yes, it rains a lot here!
I love hearing about great reads, so I thought I would share my new favorite books. Something Borrowed and Something Blue (read in that order). They are quick reads which is great and even better I couldn’t set either of them down!
Emily Griffin is the author of five New York Times Bestselling novels, including Something Borrowed which is now been adapted as a major motion picture. These Books are both about Betrayal, Redemption and Forgiveness.
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.
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.
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.
