...And if you didn't run out and purchase both of these amazing books!! I thoroughly enjoyed Emily Giffin's debut novel `SOMEHTING BORROWED' where Rachel, who always played second fiddle to her beautiful, outgoing (self-centered & narcissistic) best friend Darcy Rhone, happened to find the love of her life in Darcy's fiancé. Giffin took this taboo subject and put a witty and engrossing spin on it without making light of the situation. However, I only gave that book four stars because of what I felt were loose ends. I wanted to know what happened to Darcy after she found out about her best-friend and fiancés betrayal as well as how the secondary characters reacted to the news. Well, I had no idea that Giffin intended to do one better than just tying up a few loose ends with an extra chapter or two at the end of `SOMETHING BORROWED'. Instead she gave fans of the first book this gem of a novel that picked up perfectly where the other left off.
`SOMETHING BLUE' begins right after Darcy discovers Rachel and Dex's affair and although she too has had an affair and now finds herself pregnant as a result, she is determined to make the lives of everyone who she feels had wronged her miserable. As one of the other reviewers stated Giffin does not change the character of Darcy a bit, she is still as self-centered and narcissistic as ever, however, now she has another life to worry about, yet cant seem to quite get that through her head. But when she decides to move to London with long time friend Ethan she is forced to take a closer look at the person she is and determine what kind of person and mother she wants to become.
Giffin really outdid herself with `SOMETHING BLUE', which stands to make `SOMTHIGN BORROWED' even better. I highly recommend buying both of these wonderful books together and reading them back-to-back, you will not be disappointed! A great second novel by a very talented and creative new author!!

I was given this book as a present and expected it to be another 'chick lit' novel, but it is far more interesting than that! The characters are believable and as the book continued I found myself routing for the best outcome for Darcy. I liked it so much, I have started to read this author's first novel, 'Something Borrowed' which concentrates on the Rachel and Dex relationship.
The only negative would be the final couple of chapters which start to become a little predcitable, but otherwise it was a book I couldn't put down and read in a couple of days.

I think this is even better than the first book called something borrowed and i loved that one too! I would not have imagined i would like a book about this character more but it was very well written and seemed to pace well. I found it a page turner and very heartwarming.
About a girl who is down on her luck, only herself to blame and learning a few lessons. Cleverly written.

By maya j on 31 July 2007

`Something Blue' is fantastic! As we all know, sequels are generally pretty lame, but not this one. `Something Blue' picks up where Something Borrowed leaves off, and through the fabulous, witty writing of Emily Giffin, we get to again enjoy the lives of these vivid characters.

As it begins, we are re-introduced to Darcy, the self-absorbed, spoiled rotten, manipulative friend of Rachel's, who is also Dex's ex-fiancé. Initially I thought, "How am I going to make it through this book listening to her tinny whining?" But Emily Giffin's shining narrative moves so seamlessly, you suddenly realize after reading for a few hours that you're halfway through the book. The story line impeccably flows to all the right places, and I was amazed by how fresh it was. Giffin gives Rachel relatively little voice in this book, and I think Giffin was brilliant in writing her first novel from one person's perspective and the second from the other's, because NOW we have the full story- one from each side. None of the writing seems hackneyed or old; it is all very inventive and original. Not giving a thing away, Darcy's character does change into something more appealing, and even though the story might not go where you think it is going to go, there is a wonderful ending, packaged in a big box with a beautiful bow. Emily Giffin really is asserting herself as a dynamic new writer of "chick-lit" and someone to be reckoned with.

Format: Paperback
Darcy, the heroine in this book is the kind of girl I really wanted to be when I was a teenager. In highschool she used her socialskill to collect many interesting friends and experienced many wonderful moments. As an adult she still felt that her highschool period was the best time in her life.

When she discovered her perfect former boyfriend Dexter was in love with her best friend, a girl with an ordinary image according to her mother, she was outrages. Later she found out that all her expensive and fashionable dresses could not help her to attract the guy she was in love with or the guy who could match her high standard. She was destructive for a while. A necessary experience for Darcy to push herself to search who she really was and what she wanted to get out of her limited life.

After I read Something borrowed, I had a lot of reservations about Darcy. In Something blue Darcy went through a transition from a copy of her mother to a self-reliant modern young woman. The transition is predictable, but the experience is unique. The main character is very complex and the people around her also have their own characteristic features.
