Something Blue (Darcy & Rachel, #2) by Emily Giffin

Something Blue (Darcy & Rachel, #2)Something Blue by Emily Giffin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After reading Something Borrowed, I really, really disliked Darcy Rhone. I found her infinite narcissism and hubris outrageous and wondered why anyone would have spent their entire life being her best friend. I could hardly believe she had any friends at all after how shabbily she treated people. To Darcy, it was as though people only existed to serve her, be her adoring audience, make her look better, or prop her up. Not that I condoned Rachel's treachery, but Darcy was certainly the self-centered boob villainess of book #1. When I came to the end of "Something Borrowed" and began reading the included snippet of "Something Blue", written entirely from Darcy's perspective, I was surprisingly hooked. I thought the last thing I'd be intrigued by would be hearing the story unfold from the discovery of the betrayal by Darcy, but it was highly entertaining and I really enjoyed it! There were several inappropriate-yet-hilarious thoughts Darcy had that I laughingly read aloud to my fiancee. I was so happy with the way everything turned out, but especially with the way Darcy transformed into someone I could honestly cheer for. I wish there was a third book!
