#16 - Something Borrowed

Book A Day book number three is Emily Giffin's Something Borrowed. It's a chicklit book (as you can tell from the pink cover and wedding-centric title) about two girls, Rachel and Darcy, best friends forever until the former falls in love with the latter's fiance.

Giffin's twist, to tell the story from Rachel's point of view, the one doing the cheating, was a solid decision. It makes the book less about the drama and more about the human side of affairs, how sometimes they just happen because people make mistakes, how they fall in and out of love. Even though everyone knows the mistakes they are making, they still make them, and the whole book ends predictably.

However, it was a good, quick read, which is what I'm looking for these days.
