Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
Book Description: Rachel White is the consummate good girl. A hard-working attorney at a large Manhattan law firm and a diligent maid of honor to her charmed best friend Darcy, Rachel has always played by all the rules. Since grade school, she has watched Darcy shine, quietly accepting the sidekick role in their lopsided friendship. But that suddenly changes the night of her thirtieth birthday when Rachel finally confesses her feelings to Darcy's fiance, and is both horrified and thrilled to discover that he feels the same way. As the wedding date draws near, events spiral out of control, and Rachel knows she must make a choice between her heart and conscience. In so doing, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk everything to be true to yourself.
My Thoughts: Ok, so Sutton and I were in the theater with our husbands one movie night and we saw the trailer for this movie. Once I saw it was based on the novel, I had to read it. If you weren't aware, I love reading books turned into movies. I prefer to read the book first, they are 95% of the time way better! Do I even need to go into how lame the Twilight movie was....? Alas, I own them all. Back on point though. While this movie looked like a sweet Rom Com that Sut and I would surely be seeing without the husbands, the book was hugely disappointing. I was stressed the majority of the time reading it. The whole book is about Rachel who is in love with her Best friends fiance, Dex. I do not handle reading stories that are fully based around affairs, especially with your best friends beau. So I was annoyed and not satisfied with the ending. I'm still trying to decide whether the movie is even worth seeing. I ♥ the actors in it so that might save it. Who knows. If they follow the same story line, it'll probably be super lame. Anyways, my thoughts... I wouldn't recommend it. Bummer.
