I really enjoyed this book. It was better than the first book (Somthing Borrowed) but should definitely be read only after that one. It not only adds depth to the first book (The first few chapters "flashback" to the events in the first book, but from the perspective of a different character) but then moves on to become a great book in its own right. This book will make you laugh, cry, and never want it to end.

This sequel to Something Borrowed is every bit as good, if not better, than the first book. This story covers the shallow, narcissistic Darcy Rhone, the best friend of the heroine in Something Borrowed. Something Blue is a quick read, well-written, and quite believable. The dialog and situations are realistic. The reader also learns more about Dexter and Rachel as a couple and what they were like as individuals.

You should read "Something Borrowed" before you read this book, but you could read it on its own. This book is about Darcy, who after reading "Something Borrowed", I felt was a really self absorbed person and a terrible friend. I was surprised that Giffin decided to write a continuation of "Something Borrowed" from Darcy's point of view, and more surprised that Darcy redeems herself. Instead of focussing on the betrayal of her best friend and fiance, Darcy has to reevaluate her life and eventually starts to work on her own character, but she stumbles quite a bit on the way. She finds herself pregnant and moves to England to start over, crashing at a friends apartment while she regroups. Good story about it never being too late to grow up and change.

LOVED IT! I actually liked it even more than I liked Something Borrowed. Sure, it's frustrating to hear it from Darcy's point of view because she is annoying at times. But the fact that she bothered me so much just means I was really into the book. I felt like I knew her! And it was fun to read about her adventures after Something Borrowed. I don't want to say too much in the review and give away anything, but I highly recommend this book. But make sure you read Something Borrowed first :) GREAT summer reading by the pool!

If you like chick lits, this is a good one. Classic story line with a feel good ending. I liked Something Borrowed (the precursor to this book) and thought this one was just as good.
