The Busy Giffs: Books 4 & 5

Books 4 & 5

Yey! Another week and 2 more books!! 
I keep on this pace and I'll read 100 books this year! 
But let's be honest.. I won't.

This week I read:

I took all of your advice and I read it.
I can't say I loved it.
Maybe that's just because I can't stand the lead character Darcy.
I feel like I have a Darcy in my life so maybe I was just all set with her.
It was a good book though. I really enjoy how Emily Giffin writes so I'm sure I'll read her other books as well.

I have to admit... I got this book, read 4 chapters and put it on hold while I read Something Borrowed.
Ehhh... it was a super quick easy read but nothing I'd pick up again.
I really enjoyed Shopaholic so I was hoping to love this but sadly, no luck. 
Good but not great.

That's 5. :)


  1. I haven't read the Baby Shopaholic yet but had grown tired of the series before it was even released. I also agree with you about Darcy. I liked Something Borrowed and Something Blue but it was the combination of all the characters that did it. Nobody's innocent there :)

  2. I think I liked Something Blue because Darcy finally had to grow up. I didnt like her throughout the books but in the end I felt like she was finally thinking about someone other than herself.

  3. The last two Shopaholic books weren't the best of the group. I did love Something Blue, for the same reason as Wiz.

  4. i agree,both books are quick and easy. pretty fun to read. i was always annoyed with darcy and millie in both books because they are both selfish and don't learn from their mistakes lol

    happy friday!

  5. I love Emily Giffin! I met her in person a few months ago and she is so sweet and personable! I love that!

    You might enjoy some of her other books... Love the One You're With is good and I also really enjoyed Baby Proof!

  6. I'm sad you didn't like Something Blue. I didn't like Darcy AT ALL in Something Borrowed but grew to love her in Something Blue.

    You should give some more of Emily Giffin's books a try, she's a wonderful author!

  7. I have read all of Emily Giffin's books and that was one of my least favorite. Have you seen the movie tied in with these books?? I haven't and its on my On Demand and everything but not sure I will like it bc I can't stand Darcy either!

    I love Sophie Kinsella books and she also writes under the name it Wicklow? Not sure but love her books. :)

  8. I haven't read any Emily Giffen books, but I have them! I watched Something Borrowed (and I'm not a chick flick girl) and loved it, so I definitely want to read the book.

  9. I liked Something borrowed much better but my FAVE emily giffin book is Baby Proof. Def give it a read!

  10. Oops that comment was from jenilee by the way :-)
