Friday Movie/Book Night: Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

Meet Rachel, a New York Lawyer, turning 30.  Rachel is sweet, kind, and single.  Her best friend, Darcy is the complete opposite of that.  Darcy is outgoing, selfish, and engaged to Dex.  Dex and Rachel went to law school together and were friends.   

It was not until the night of Rachel's 30 birthday party, that Darcy hosted, that her life changed.  Dex and Rachel ended up sleeping together.  Rachel was so upset because she could not believe that she did that to her best friend, Darcy.  However, Rachel and Dex's relationship blossomed.

As the story unfolds, we should feel sorry for Darcy, but it is Rachel who you want to give the hug too.  Through the ups and downs of the story, Rachel finally begins to figure out that she needs to live her life for her and not to please everyone else.

The movie will be out on May 6th.

  1. I'm not sure if I could read this book or watch the movie because it seems like it will make me pretty angry. I don't care how much of a snot Darcy is--you NEVER cheat w/ your best friend's man! However, I do like both of the lead actresses in the movie, so maybe I'll change my mind... :)
