I am sooo excited because I just switched from a doctor to a midwife (yes, at 29 weeks), and my first appointment is this morning. I'll do a blog post on why I decided to switch sometime this week (if I can remember).
ANYWAY. I'm also excited because it's the last Tuesday of the month, and you know what that means.... BOOK CLUB!!! Yes, I have been an extremely crappy blogger for the past couple months, so you probably had no idea that today was book club day. Oh, well. I'll get better about things as soon as this baby (and work) are no longer consuming my life.
The book for this month was Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin. Of course this review contains what could be considered spoilers. I have a big mouth, yo!
I freakin' loved it. Really. I was a little shocked that I was sitting there cheering for a relationship that was borderline adulterous, but you know what? It was true love. I mean, the wedding did eventually get called off, so it's all good, right? Because if they end up together and no one was ever married it's not that bad, is it? At least in the world of literature, where nothing is really real, anyway? Okay, I'll stop trying to rationalize.
But seriously - I hated Darcy. I wanted to punch her in her self-absorbed, spoiled little face. What. A. Beep. I was sooo happy when she ended up alone - she totally deserved it. But here is where I tell you that you need to read the sequel (Something Blue). You might hate her a little less after that.
I give this book an A. Sure, it got a little borderline with the whole almost-but-not-quite-adulterous relationship, but I loved it. Emily Giffin's writing style is pretty awesome, and while this was clearly a book written for women, it didn't feel like dumbed down chic lit. I'd read it again, I liked it enough to read the sequel (which I also love and whole-heartedly recommend), and I liked it enough to check out some of Emily Giffin's other work.
Did you/have you read it? What did you think? Link up your review below!
Concerning book club for March: I believe we totally spaced this one - I'll get with Kaylee and Kim and see what the plan is and let you guys know ASAP! Oops!
