Jun emlly, Erin Dempsey rated it it was amazing. Jul 31, Dana rated it liked it. Marian, a something NYC TV producer who has to deal with a knock on the door one night and the presence of a stranger who turns out to be her long-lost, year-old daughter, Kirby.

I won this as an ARC from Goodreads and was so excited to read it. I was really looking forward to her new book and belogn i read it. The moral side of the story is appalling, the characters are flat, the class-divide is stereotyping and shallow, the men are all strong and reassuring, the girls all die for a good dress, with the supposedly rebel girl who acknowledges that deep d This is the most appalling book I have read in a long time.

Smoothly enough that I believe she broadened her reading audience by the small maneuver. However, I thought things turned out quite well for Kirby, as ultimately, this was her story and her journey. Enter Kirby’s search for her Biological Parents. I felt betrayed by Emily Giffin for leaving me hanging. I was left feeling disappointed. This book was so focused on Kirby – i would even say this was a YA book.

I love Emily Giffin so much and this book was great!! It’s well-written and mildly entertaining but neither the plot nor the blong manage any true depth. Aug 26, Julianna Helms marked it as never-ever-says-big-brother. I was excited to win a copy of this book as I had enjoyed Something Borrowed, and surprisingly, enjoyed its sequel, Something Blue, even more.


The ending was a bit up-in-the-air. If not, I will give her one more chance in whatever she produces in the next year or two, but I will be fearful that she, like so many young writers lately, is banking on her name, rather than her true talent, to sell her books. It is something to pass the time, and if you are a fan of this so called “chick lit” genre how does being a chick have anything to do with reading a mindless, insipid story?

Jan 17, Kathryn rated it it was amazing Shelves: Whhere is the story of an adopted girl turning 18 and finding her birth parents. Her female characters have some conflict and complexity; gicfin male characters are more one-dimensional.

Kirby was the best character, a really plucky, spunky, tough on the outside girl trying to figure out her life and where wjere would fit in.

Giffin has gotten into the habit of having a character or two from her previous novels appear and dispense wisdom, which could give some intriguing continuity, or could just be annoying, and it happens again here with the couple from Baby-Proof popping in. I always feel like i walk away with something when i read her books. May 15, Eileen Patterson rated it it was amazing.

All I can think is that a sequel is in the works.

Where We Belong

Kirby, an adopted daughter the “ugly duckling” of her adopted family seeks her birth mother Marian. I too am familiar with the author but have not read any of her books.

Clearly she …more Yes! It did not make gififn characters more believable or add authenticity in any way. Martin’s Press first published As my Goodreads friend Veronica told me, it is a feel good story. This is a bad idea – even if beoong do get it spot on and I noticed a few times where it didn’t it always seems jarring. Bio Dad never knew that Marion was pregnant, and is excited to build a relationship with Kirby.

I was pleasantly happy reading this one and found myself satisfied with the path the author took me down. Sep 02, Abigail Beckwith rated it it was ok Shelves: Emily Giffin is known for her relationship-themed novels.

Dec 28, Brandice rated it really liked it. This page was last edited on 4 October viffin, at Two reality checks–can a prom dress be stuffed into a tote bag inconspicuously? Now I know this sort of things does happen but I also have no idea what I would do if I was ever out in that situation.

Then there’s the right man! I won’t say more, I don’t want to give away any plot points. Giffin pulls it off very nicely.

I found myself relating more to Kirby, Kirby had spunk, whwre, the adoption issue overshadowed the whole book for me. A daughter she gave up for adoption but never stopped thinking about. Giffin’s views on adoption are entirely cliche’ and have no real bearing on true adoptions. As the two women embark on a journey to find the one thing missing in their lives, each will come to recognize that where we belong is often where we least expect to find ourselves—a place that we may have willed ourselves to forget, but that the heart remembers forever.

I don’t think I’ve ever said about a book from start to finish but I swear this book was it! givfin

The rest of the book was fleshed out nicely, I just felt that another p I have been a fan of Giffin’s writing because her prose evokes emotions and connection with the characters. Despite my enjoyment I shall now proceed to nitpick, whee!
