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.

Good book, but you wanted to reach into the pages and beat the crap out of the selfish, materialistic, brat Darcey. She is your classic queen bee who learns things the worng way. A little predictable but a good read.

I really enjoyed this book! Darcy isn't the most likable character at first, but she did grow on me. I liked the ending despite hearing mixed reviews about it. Definitely a book I would recommend if you liked the previous novel Something Borrowed.

This book follows "Something Borrowed" in the new series by Emily Giffin. I must warn you, if you haven't read Something Borrowed, read it before reading this. You'll definitely feel like you're missing pieces of the puzzle if you don't. With that said, this was a fantastic book. At the end of Something Borrowed, I found myself hating Darcy with passion. This book puts a completely different spin on the story and kind of leaves you with a soft spot for Darcy. A good read. I took it to the beach on vacation and had SUCH a hard time putting it down.

I really enjoyed the set of Something Borrowed and Something Blue, but I have to say that I dislike when books wrap things up too cleanly. Darcy is a horrible narcissist and this book does not make her that more likeable. Someone as selfish as Darcy should not have everything perfect in the end, just because she had to stop shopping and got yelled at once by the person who she is mooching off of. Rachel is Something Borrowed is a much better heroine.

Like many readers, I didn't think I'd enjoy this because Darcy was such a destable character in Something Borrowed. She's much more stomachable, even likable, in Something Blue, and it's interesting to see the earlier events filtered through her decided and defiant tone.

This is a excellent book about friendship and love. I would also recommend that you read "Somthing Borrowed" s this is the second in the series. The characters are very well developed and there will be something in the book that you can relate to. You could take this book to the beach or on vacation, enjoy and still get somthing out of it.

I read this book, which is the sequel to "Something Borrowed," first - which I absolutely can't stand to do. At the time I had no idea there was a predessor though. I hated the heroine in this novel for a vast majority of the book but I couldn't put it down. To me, to keep me interested in a book that I hate the heroine in is a feat!!! As the book irons out though you'll come to love not only the book but the heroine as well... although I think it may be better to read this in the proper order so things aren't quite as spoiled for you. VERY captivating read!

What can I say...I loved this book! IMO this book was way better than the first book "Something Borrowed". I always root for characters like Darcy. I guess I just love a flawed heroine seeking redemption. I loved her character growth, her struggles, and mostly her inner thoughts. I really loved Darcy's perspective on the whole situation from the first book. This book gave her more depth and boy did she need it. She came of as such a shallow bitch in bk 1. This book had me laughing and crying. Which to me equates a good book. Would love to see them make this one into a movie like they did with the first book. This is must read chick lit!!!

Something Blue is the follow up book to Something Borrowed. This is an excellent follow up to the first book. All of the same characters make cameos in this book as well. I found myself really rooting for Darcy to do well, something I never would have thought after reading the first book. This is a very quick read and an excellent story!

I was quite skeptical of this book because it shifts to the dreaded spoiled brat Darcy's point of view. As I read I made peaces with her over her own changes. Despite a little meloncholy I have for the ending I do like this book. I like way Emily Griffin writes. Its especially grand for us late twenty or early thirty something readers.

A great follow up to Something Borrowed. You could kind of tell where things were headed in the book, but it was great to see the way it happened. Wonderful read!

What pallid and simplistic book! The author does have a writing style that made it easy to read but I hated Darcy. So self-centered, selfish and full of herself that this reader found it difficult to relate to her. The only real character is Ethan yet I couldn't believe that he could care about the person of Darcy as described by the author. Finally, if someone is as shallow as Darcy, I could not see how she could change as dramatically as the author suggests. My feelings about the character development and tales like these make me cringe.
