Emily Giffin

Emily Giffin is a former attorney turned New York Times bestselling author and my all time favorite. I was introduced to her books a few years back at my friend Julia's birthday party. As soon as she opened Love the One You're With, I was immediately captivated by the beautiful book cover and just had to see what was inside. I finished that book in 2 days, and I am confident you will find yourself staying up late to finish her books too.

Emily is a brilliant writer. Her plots are well developed, and the characters are dynamic and multifaceted. I suggest reading her books in the above order because the characters reappear in later stories. Get started soon because Something Borrowed is going to film, and the cast is rumored to include Colin Farrell, Kate Hudson, John Krasinski, Ginnifer Goodwin and Colin Egglesfield. Colin Egglesfield, by the way, was just written out of the new Melrose Place series so this is a huge role for him. My friend from Red Vines for Breakfast recently ran into him in Los Angeles and posted a photo. Maybe she can share her thoughts on how he is in real life.

Emily's fifth book Heart of the Matter hits stores on May 11th. I am counting down the days!
