Nothing shockingly awesome, but a good, fun, quick read. A nice break after some heavier books! ( )

Relationship of the 2 girls follows with Rachel doing everything that Darcy wants. She falls for fiancé Dex but constantly questions if it is real. ( )

Rachel White has a big problem! She realizes she's in love with Dex, the fiance of her best friend Darcy. Bigger problem, he loves her back. Now what? This is the heart of the story in Something Borrowed. I saw the movie, but, as usual the book was better. ( )

It has been years since I have read this, so I can give few details as to why I rated it only two stars years ago. Largely, I was forced to read it: I had brought this book on a day trip that stranded me overnight, so I had no alternative. Otherwise, I would have never finished it.

I didn’t find the writing particularly colourful or engaging. I hated the characters; I mostly wanted to punch them and didn’t feel them redeemed in the end. I was bored.

The one thing I did appreciate was that Rachel mourned the loss of Darcy, even though their relationship was unhealthy, and even though she was ultimately getting a better relationship in the end. Usually, I don’t think books (or other fiction media) demonstrate how we mourn the loss of friendships, particularly female friendships. Sure, heartache over a boyfriend or a family member... but a friend can be more wounding. Heck, even in other heartaches, I miss the friend in the boy, not the boy (and sometimes the heartache comes from me realizing the friend left first and I had nothing but an empty boy). The loss of their friendship, even if needed, was still a loss. ( )

Songs and smells will bring you back to a moment in time more than anything else. It's amazing how much can be conjured with a few notes of a song or a solitary whiff of a room. A song you didn't even pay attention to at the time, a place you didn't even know had a particular smell . . . It's like when someone dies, the initial stages of grief seem to be the worst. But in some ways, it gets sadder as time goes by and you consider how much they've missed in your life. In the world.
