Please provide an email address. It doesn't really feel like she has matured a lot, and that makes me think that she's probably not ready for marriage. I see nothing I love series that follow a protagonist through for years and years, especially as they grow and change! I see nothing wrong with Beany wanting a nice wedding. Carl seems like kind of a jerk about that whole thing.
I also just wish someone would just listen to Beany! The wedding as it was turned out pretty nicely, though. Johnny in general kind of annoyed me in this book. I think I like the earlier books in the series a little better. I'd give this about 2.
Something Borrowed, Something Blue by Lenora Mattingly Weber
Jan 11, Emily rated it liked it Shelves: Not my favorite in this series. For the sake of the plot all the maturity Beany has acquired over the course of many many books completely vanishes, so that we can have a narrative arc about Beany learning that superficial things are not what's really important. Something she's learned at least twice, I think. Jul 26, CLM rated it really liked it Shelves: Aug 19, Mary M rated it it was amazing.
Oh dear, misunderstandings come between Beany and her beau Liked the bits with Mary Fred and Johnny and Miggs! Aug 28, Betsy rated it it was amazing Shelves: This may be the most purely satisfying book in the Beany Malone series. Dec 03, Alexandra rated it really liked it Shelves: Maybe it's just that the standard American wedding more commonly became more formal sometime around the s, but it didn't quite make sense to me as to why so many people her family, friends, and fiance expected Beany to have a super basic, informal do.
Nothing Nonna suggested for Beany seemed outrageous to me, and described pretty much all of my friends' and family weddings I've been to in the last 30 years with the possible exception of some of the receptions were held in church halls, bu Maybe it's just that the standard American wedding more commonly became more formal sometime around the s, but it didn't quite make sense to me as to why so many people her family, friends, and fiance expected Beany to have a super basic, informal do.
Nothing Nonna suggested for Beany seemed outrageous to me, and described pretty much all of my friends' and family weddings I've been to in the last 30 years with the possible exception of some of the receptions were held in church halls, but were still catered events attended by all the guests, not just some. It also pretty closely resembles what I've heard my mom and aunt's weddings all married between and were like. Guess it's possible that things were different in LMW's circle, or maybe she just needed a plot for the book. Much less finalize the date, buy your dress, and plan for the food all about ten days out.

A light read, an enjoyable romance book Review "Something Borrowed" by Emily Giffin A definite "Sex in the city" book about young professionals trying to build careers and find true love in the Big Apple.

I also thought Rachel White was very naive regarding her relationship with her best friend Darcy. Darcy constantly putting her down, grabbing the attention in any conversation, using not only Rachel but her friends too, leaning on them to help in her self-made crisises. But then I thought- gee Sue you were as naive: I was well into my late 30's early 40's before I began to see such patterns in my own relationships with friends and family. So finally I relaxed and enjoyed the story and what a good story it is- Rachel did a lot of soul searching the morning after her 30th birthday party where she drank too much and she and Darcy's fiance Dexter fall in bed together.
Darcy's wedding is set for September, yet Rachel and Dexter can't stop seeing each other over the summer. Rachel is falling hard for Dexter and with help of old friends one who invites her to London to give her the space and awareness she needs to give an ultimatim to Dexter and stand by it.
All ends well, Rachel and Dexter declare their love, and it is discover that Darcy was cheating on Dexter with another friend from their circle. Fun to read with a sequel coming up. Jan 08, Bookworm rated it did not like it. I'm disappointed in the further books of Beany Malone!
There isn't a book it seems, where she can't have a peaceful time-she continaully gets into scrapes, or on everyone's bad side!

And it felt like the author was just trying to tie up lose ends, close to the end of the series I didn't even finish this one, because it was too disappointing! Oct 30, Tara rated it liked it.
