Ah, June! Welcome to the best month of the year. School will soon be out. Summer is coming and the possibilities of a fun-filled, sun-soaked three months entices us to dream of something more. There’s nothing more refreshing than being able to kick back in your backyard with a tall glass of something cool and a great book. This month’s book pick, “Something Borrowed” by NY Times best-selling author Emily Giffin, will be great company on those languorous days when you just want a great and entertaining read.
Giffin is a former lawyer turned author who made quite a splash with her debut novel, “Something Borrowed”. It’s the story of women’s friendships and what it takes to follow your heart. Rachel and Darcy have been best friends since elementary school but somehow Darcy always tried to get the edge over her friend Rachel. Speed it up twenty years later and we find Rachel working at a New York law firm, while Darcy is a publicist, planning a wedding with the handsome guy Rachel introduced her to. After a little too much to drink following her 30th birthday party, she shares an amorous evening with her best friend’s fiancé. But somehow she realized that Dex is actually the only man she's really loved, and that she's always resented her manipulative friend. As the wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the idea of right and wrong can be a matter of perspective, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to trust your own heart in your quest for true happiness.
