Review: Something Blue

Something Blue by Emily Giffin

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I didn’t read ‘Something Borrowed’ before I read this book, not sure if it would have changed my experience.

I wish I could say I liked this book more than I did. My first flaw with it is that I hate stories where lifelong female amigas backstab eachother by sleeping with eachother’s boyfriends/fiances. Yes, I know at the end of the book, Darcy analyzes it all, but it still makes me cringe a bit.
Now about Darcy – her arrogant, childish manners grated on my last nerve and it felt like this went of for half of the book. Even so, I put up with it because I knew something would happen that would trigger a change in her, but when it did come, it just didn’t seem big enough. I expected a huge crash-and-burn, but it all boiled down to was – a conversation.
One calm scolding from her friend Ethan, and suddenly she became a madeover angel with a heart of gold. I felt the transformation was too fast and forced.
But – I’m a sucker for happy endings! I loved Ethan and the way he slowly warmed up to her. Out of everyone, he had the guts to shove the proverbial mirror in her face. I liked that he didn’t let her manipulate him the way she did with her other men, even if they did end up dumping her. My favorite part was her trip to the OB/GYN when she recieved her first ultrasound and learned about her bonus prize.

The writing was clean, colorful and smooth. Even though I didn’t like this book as much as ‘Love The One You’re With’ (another title of hers), I am crazy curious to read ‘Something Borrowed’!
