Good books

I just finished two books by Emily Griffin. The first was Something Borrowed and the second was Something Blue. Something Blue is the sequel to Something Borrowed. I would definitely recommend reading them in their proper order.

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical after reading what the books were about, but I gave them a chance and I'm so glad that I did.

Something Borrowed begins with the story of two best friends who are total opposites. They are the kind of friends who are just friends because of how long they have known each other, but they don't have much in common anymore. One of the friends is engaged to be married. The story is told through the other friend, who is the maid of honor. I don't want to tell you too much because it will spoil the book.

I read Something Blue next. Something Blue is told through the engaged friend. It was very interesting to read them back to back. The differences in their perspectives on life were intriguing.

I think Emily Griffin is a very talented writer. Her stories were funny and light-hearted. They also discussed emotions that I think most women feel or at least think about. I like that because I feel like I can relate to the characters in the book. I like books where the characters feel like friends.
