Love the One Your With - Emily Giffin


Okay girls, I’m not gonna lie to ya. I wasn’t that impressed with Emily Giffin’s latest novel. I loved Something Borrowed & Something Blue. I also liked Baby Proof, but it wasn’t nearly as good as Something Borrowed & Something Blue.

This novel was worse than Baby Proof. I was so bored when I was reading it. I would try to read a chapter a night, but sometimes, I couldn’t even get through that. Well I finally finished it last week. I have to admit, the last two chapters were good. However, I was disappointed with the book. Call me old-fashioned, but why can’t she just write about someone actually loving the one they are with? Why is it, in her books, that the main characters always have to venture out of their relationships to decide whether or not they really do - love the one they are with?

I think it makes for an interesting plot once in a while, but for every novel? No thanks. Anyways, I would not recommend this book. Maybe her next book will be better. Feel free to share your opinions!

Oh no!!! I was so excited about this book becuase I loved her first two (I haven't read baby proof) now I'm not even going to waste my time : (

Maybe she's been cheated on and she's never been able to get over it.....or maybe she's a cheater and is so guilt ridden that she has to write about it!!!

Thanks for the warning :(

I actually liked it. It wasn't my "favorite" of hers, but I thought it was a good, easy read! :)

I'm glad you said that because I just finished Something Borrowed. I liked that one, but it took me awhile to really get into it. Now I'm reading Chasing After Harry Winston. It's really cute so far!

Crap. I looooved the first two books. I was so hooked! I read Something Blue in St. JOhn!

I am glad I read your review before I bought the book. I am not a fan of books where the character leaves their relationship to find "love" with someone else, so I would have not enjoyed this book.

I have the book and I am in the middle of it. This is the first of her books that I have read.
