“I do not expect to get what I want, so I don’t. And I don’t even try.”

Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed

Giffin was born in 1972. She published her first novel at age 32.

What a line. How many young women grew up feeling this way? I know I did.

Something Borrowed is a wonderful read. My favourite thing about it is that most of us can identify with both Rachel and Darcy. The two women are drawn up as opposites, but both are still so relatable.
