This is a schedule post. By now I should be somewhere in Vietnam.
I recently read a book titled ‘Something Borrowed’ by Emily Griffin.
*Disclaimer: If you are that kind of people who do want to check out the book, but doesn’t want to know the story and ending yet, please just skip this post. It is a very good book.
Ok the plot summary.
The novel centers around the protagonist and narrator, Rachel White, a thirty-year-old single woman who is a consummate good-girl. She and Darcy Rhone have been best friends since childhood, and hard-working Rachel is often in the shadow of flashy, sometimes selfish Darcy. Then, after a night of drinking on Rachel’s thirtieth birthday, she sleeps with Darcy’s fiance, Dex. After this turns into an affair, Rachel explores the meaning of friendship, true love, and ethics.

So after you got the idea of the story, let me further elaborate, as I feel that the summary given was a little too simple. So Rachel slept with Dex, and continued the affair for quite a few months and Dex finally found out that he actually loves Rachel not Darcy. Though at the end, Darcy was found to be sleeping and pregnant with Marcus, Dex’s good friend and a guy who Rachel is kinda dating.
So my question is, let’s assume Darcy wasn’t cheating on Dex, should Dex call off the wedding(he did at the end, by the way), and be together with Rachel, or should Darcy continue marrying Darcy and ditch Rachel, as that may be the ‘right’ thing to do.
There’s obviously many things to consider of and many angle to think from. But if I were Darcy, and my fiancé who I love dearly was cheating on me with my best friend(!), I’d be deeply hurt and obviously very angry. But I still do love that man. Very complicated question, my mind is blur of what I’d actually do now.
Just wanna know what you think and what you will do.
And please do check out the book. And the movie too. It stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Rachel, Kate Hudson as Darcy, Colin Egglesfield(*swoons*) as Dex and John Krasinski as Ethan. I admit I did fell asleep watching the movie, but in my defense, I was really tired that day but I fully intend to watch it again.
Next scheduled post should be up on Saturday.
Bought the sequel to this book named ‘Something Blue’ and brought it to Vietnam with me to read!
