Something borrowed coming to the big screen

Something Borrowed is being made into a movie. Someone gave me this book for Christmas one year, but have never got around to reading it. I let a coworker borrow it and she liked it so much that she went and got the rest of Emily Giffin's books. The movie will be released in 2011. 

The cast: Kate Hudson as Darcy, John Krasinski as Ethan, and Ginnifer Goodwin as Rachel.

by Emily Giffin
Release Date: April 2005

About the Book

Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan. Rachel has always been the consummate good girl---until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy's fiancé.

Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from. As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren't always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness. Something Borrowed is a phenomenal debut novel that will have you laughing, crying, and calling your best friend.
