Where We Belong by Emily Giffin

Last summer, I went through an Emily Giffin phase. I read Something Borrowed, then Something Blue, then Love the One You're With, and Baby Proof. I'd seen numerous tweets from @emilygiffin on Twitter about her latest title Where We Belong so I just had to read it. I also tweeted about my desire to read it. I was kind of hoping for a retweet - that didn't happen. #sadface
Where We Belong was great! In this book, Marian is forced to confront a secret she's kept with only her mother for eighteen years... because her eighteen-year-old secret shows up on her doorstep. This little secret could not have come to light at a worse time for Marian. She is in a steady relationship, slightly putting pressure on her boyfriend to propose, has a career and hardly time for anything else.
Marian's secret, an eighteen-year-old drummer chick named Kirby, gives this novel a kind of  Young Adult twist. Kirby's character appealed to me as I could sense her hesitance and uncertainty in getting involved with a life-changing situation with Marian. 
If you liked Emily Giffin's other novels, give this one a shot!


  1. I have this one on my list ... sounds like I'd enjoy it.

  2. An unlikely list of characters with but one thing in common find life changing results from knowing each other. Changes not sought but ultimately beneficial to all. The author makes them very real and you're glad you got to know them.

  3. This book is really good easy reading. It's catchy. Within the first few pages, you are hooked, and I guarantee you won't be able to put it down until you reach the end.
