Something Borrowed definitely brought me back to the time I spent living in Manhattan, with the people, the attitudes, and the all too real deceit among groups of friends.

I started the book expecting a bunch of "fluff," but was drawn in by Emily Giffin's writing style. Reading this book was as fluid as a conversation with an old friend. I couldn't put the book down! I felt like the narrator Rachel's confident, and even though I couldn't stand some of her actions, I just had to know what was going to happen next.

The ending was not what I expected, which separates Something Borrowed from the all too familiar chick lit read. I look forward to reading the next book in her series, Something Blue.

Tara You have a very similar take to what I did. I was surprised that it was not as much "fluff" as I thought it would be.
