Something Blue (without spoilers!…I guess)
Why did I read this when I disliked the first one so much? 1) Because I own it; 2) because I set a goal to read 50 of my own unread books a year (ugh, that barely makes a dent in the unread bookcase); 3) because I knew it would be a quick read; 4) because I knew going in that the main character would be a selfish jerk, and therefore her selfishly jerky actions wouldn’t seem anywhere near as bad those of her “good girl” best friend.
I was right.
It’s still not a great book, and relies far too much on a trope that pisses me off, but it was still better than Something Borrowed.
The trope is “having children makes me unselfish and loving.” The other thing that bugged me was “We cheated because we were so unhappy/incompatible, but now that we’re with the people we’re meant to be with, we’ll NEVER cheat again.” Oh yes, cuz that’s how it works in real life. For sure. *eyeroll*
