Something Blue Reviews

    Something Blue is the follow-up to Something Borrowed. This story is from Darcy's point of view. I loved this book and it is a very quick read. I have to admit I hated Darcy in Something Borrowed and even did at the beginning of Something Blue. I felt that she was finally getting what she deserved when everything started to go down hill for her. Part of me even started to feel sorry for her at her lowest points.

    What I liked in this book, is that Ethan, her childhood friend, finally pointed out

    What I liked in this book, is that Ethan, her childhood friend, finally pointed out to her what type of a person she really is. No one had ever done this to her and his words really hit home. Darcy decided to change herself for the better. This book follows Darcy through her pregnancy and journey to be a better person. I felt proud of her as the book ended to see what she had done with her life and how much she had changed for the better.

    I was blown away by this book. If you hate the main character when you start reading, don't worry, you're supposed to!!!! But, keep reading because the story is incredible and you will learn to root for Darcy Rhone whether you like it or not! Fantastic read!!! (Be sure to read "Something Borrowed" first or this book will not make as much sense)

    Spoiler Alert: Some of the other reviews I have read of this book are very cynical regarding Darcy's transformation...however, the reason Darcy transforms

    Spoiler Alert: Some of the other reviews I have read of this book are very cynical regarding Darcy's transformation...however, the reason Darcy transforms is because she has no other choice! Everyone in Darcy's life had always catered to her every whim because of her physical beauty. She had always gotten exactly what she wanted and never had to think about the consequences of her behavior. However, after everything that takes place in Something Borrowed, in addition to her relationship with Marcus, dismissal of Claire and her mother, she is forced to reevaluate her behavior when Ethan finally sets her straight. She has no one to depend on and Ethan sees through her crap! He forces her to look at life differently and to realize that she was not the victim in everything that happened....he also forces her to realize that she can no longer get away with her shallow behavior....she no longer had everyone wrapped around her little finger and therefore she had to become a new version of herself. Maybe I am just not as cynical as other readers, but I truly believe that this type of transformation is possible given the circumstances of Darcy's story.

    After some very funny moments on book one:

    some huge changes due to meaningful love triangles:

    And the lost of a very important friendship:

    we get to Darcy's and Ethan's book and let me just say: OMG I LOVED THIS BOOK! I had already fallen in love with the characters in it after watching the movie based on

    , but now I can certainly say that Darcy and Ethan were the real deal. While Rachel and Dex were great, Darcy & Ethan just gave me so much more than what I was looking for.

    , but now I can certainly say that Darcy and Ethan were the real deal. While Rachel and Dex were great, Darcy & Ethan just gave me so much more than what I was looking for.

    At the beginning of the book we get a totally immature heroine, just a brat who is used to get everything she has ever wanted and just the way she wants it, not having a care for what happens to others while she achieves what she wants. Of course this kind of behavior brought her some problems eventually. She ended up pregnant with an ex-fiance who left her for her ex-best friend, and a boyfriend who she cheated the ex-fiance with who also will leave her eventually. Not even her parents gave her any support once they found out she was pregnant. Once this happens, she realizes the world she built for herself was totally superficial, shallow and vain and she just doesn't know how to really make things better. Seriously, she has no clue as she doesn't actually comprehend what's wrong on the first place.

    The only way she found to make things a bit better was running away to England to her childhood only remaining friend Ethan. Now here is where things started to get really good. Sigh, I just have no words to describe the amazing relationship they built together. They were just perfect for each other, total opposites but the type who makes you become a better person. I just loved how both changed for the better by living together. Seriously, it was just so good to see their friendship growing and to see how both made important changes in their lives with the advises the other gave. While both of them were romantically involved with others we can see how the affection and feelings between them are always present. This is a book which analyzes feelings, realities of life and life itself. I just LOVED it so much. I guess we needed to see how Darcy was at the beginning to fully comprehend everything it took her to change and become the woman she was always meant to be. Although more than anything I just adored to see how important the support of a real friend can be.

    I do admit the first half of it was a bit slow. It took me some time to warm to Darcy. I kinda hated her at the beginning. Although that feeling was what made me love her so much at the end as seeing her being such an ungrateful and spoiled person made possible for me to really appreciate the changes she went through.

    I'm someone who doesn't like chick-lit much and who hates cheesy and corny more than anything but this book is so much better than that, It's realistic and gives us so much to learn. I definitely recommend it. **sigh, it has been a long time since I feel like this towards a book.

    I know it wouldn't have been the same if I hadn't. watching the movie helped me so much to imagine how the characters would look like while saying and expressing certain things making it much more compelling to me.

    Okay, so I hated that this book focused on Darcy and not Rachel. I left Something Borrowed really hating that character. 254 pages in, and I still thought she sucked. The plot was fairly predictable--you knew she was seeking redemption in the novel as well as with the reader, and the ending was equally predictable.

    I loved the focus on Ethan as he was one of my favorite characters from Something Borrowed.

    I was completely resistant to the movement as I knew where this was going, and I simply did

    I was completely resistant to the movement as I knew where this was going, and I simply did not want it to go there. Griffin achieves her goal by making the reader, resistantly, start to at least like Darcy a little more. And, I will willfully admit, I was tearing up during the Epilogue.

    I'd still like to see a novel that returned the focus to Rachel, but I know why the author went the route she did. It was simply too easy. By making Darcy the very hated but ultimate hero of the second book...Griffin takes a resistant reader and makes her unwilling to put the book down.

    I finished these two novels in 1.5 days...again, worth a good day at the beach/pool/on the couch.

    Premise is way better than the first book.
