Love the One You're With Reviews

    I was very disappointed by this book. I really liked her other novels and found them to be quick, fun, beach-reads that still conjured up some feelings and life lessons. I felt nothing with this book except anger towards the main character and sort of annoyed at certain scenarios that ...

    The thing I like about Emily Giffin is that she doesn't talk down to her readers. Nor does she assume that everyone who wants to read a light, fun, chick book gives two hoots about what brand of clothing the heroine wears. Her books aren't cerebral by any means, but they're smart. ...

    This book was awful. God, it was so awful. It isn't even worth a full review and so I will try to summarize it in a few lines. Ellen: I love Andy SO SO SO MUCH! Andy: I'm practically the epitome of a good person, and the author paints me in a way that makes me seem perfect. So yay:...

    Possibly never have I disliked a book more than I did this one. If possible- I would give this book a negative star rating. Unfortunately goodreads will not allow me to do this. So instead I?ll describe why my initial response upon finishing this book was one of depression at the rea...

    Love the One You're With is a standalone, women's fiction/chick-lit novel written by author Emily Giffin. Ms. Giffin's novels have been hit or miss with me, and when they miss, they miss big time. I have zero appreciation for marital affairs or romantic deception in general that end in...

    This was another great book by Emily Giffen staying true to her form of regular people making some tough and non-conventional choices. I both disliked, and related to Ellen. I also liked how the scope of this book covered both the modern love story (in that the one we end up with is ra...

    First off, I couldn't put this book down, I started it on Sunday (late morning) and finished it Monday evening. This is my second favorite Emily Giffin book (behind Something Borrowed). There was a similar dynamic between Ellen and Margot, much like that of Rachel and Darcy in Somet...

    2.5 stars. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice ...

    I remember when Emily Giffin's first book came out, and since it dealt with cheating, I did not pick it up for the longest time. Then I read a thoroughly positive review of it (I think on chicklitbooks.com, which may no longer be around) and I decided I had to see what the fuss was abo...

    A modern yuppie romance. Newlywed Ellen bumps into Leo, her old boyfriend, in the street in New York City on a rainy day. Stunned, she goes to a nearby coffee shop to gather herself. Leo calls her cell phone and asks where she is, showing up a few moments later. They have coffee and...

    Emily Giffin is a very talented writer. Her first two books were nearly impossible to put down, she wrote the main characters so sympathetically and realistically that the stories truly came alive. Her third book was decent - not as mind-blowingly good as the first two, but still okay....

    I had both good and bad reactions to this book. Good: it definitely sucked me in. It was hard not to be constantly wondering what choices Ellen would make next. The last 30 pages were impossible to put down. I also though Giffin did a good job of examining love and choice from a variet...

    So, I was totally psyched to read the latest offering from Emily Giffin. I loved, loved, loved her other novels. But her latest is different. It starts out slowly, almost slow enough to make me quit. And the protagonist, Ellen Graham, isn?t exactly likable. She is a photographer ...

    I have to admit that I do like some "chick-lit" and that I have read all of Emily Giffin's books. That said, I really didn't think that this book was anything special. The plot was predictable, and the characters weren't particularly memorable. Giffin's first two books, "Something Borr...

    So I started sticky-noting this book on page 8. (Well, I started on page 12 and then retroactively stickied something on page 8.) I will sometimes mark up books I own when I feel like it, but I usually prefer to use sticky notes if I find something I really want to reference in my r...

    This book spoke to me because it mirrored my own struggle with my decision to end my marriage. At times it was as if the author was in my head, telling my story, although unlike Ellen, I didn't stay with my husband. Overall I really liked the book. However, there were a few things t...

    I'm curious to know whether Emily Giffin can write a book without a destroyed marriage or infidelity. Because every one of the books that I've read of hers include this, and not just as a secondary theme, but as the main plot of the book. Honestly, its monotonous. Infidelity is not at ...

    please, please, please don't bother... the in demand shelves at the library beckoned...i listened...and am now a national spokeswoman to say, please do not bother. save yourself. re-read an old favorite book & you'll be oh that much happier, i guarantee :) ...

    It took me days to read this book which a chick lit book takes 1 or 2 days to read. I found the main character Ellen as a whiny, ungrateful brat. That is funny because the author wrote a sad background story for her: poor, pittsburgh breed, lost her mother as teen. However I felt angry...

    I love Emily Giffin?s writing and rank Something Borrowed as one of my favourite chick-lit books ever. I also enjoyed Something Blue and Baby Proof and was excited when I finally saw Love the One You?re With at the second-hand bookswop I go to. I quite liked the idea of the stor...

    The story began with Ellen Graham, who reasoned she?s got OCD and thus counted the days since she got married with Andy. And it had been eight years and sixteen days since she heard his voice again. And bumped into him while walking the streets. Her ex lover?s voice. Her former fla...

    Emily Giffin could very well be put in the category of genius women writers. When I was growing up, my mother would devour romance novels by Danielle Steel and Barbara Delinsky. When I asked her why she read so many of them, she told me that each of the books had a resonating undertone...

    A fine example of the current state of "chick lit" as the protagonists move from the search for the soul mate to what happens after the wedding. Here, our plucky girl in the city has just married a smart, successful, rich, nice, handsome guy who adores her and who happens to be the bro...

    I really enjoyed this book. The subject matter really hit home for me. Having been in a simialr situation as Ellen I could relate to her plight and understand how confused and in turmoil she was. That first love who you love with such passion and then who breaks your heart is tough to ...

    Another amazing book by one of my favorite authors! My favorite thing about Emily Giffin's writing style is her characters, always so real - flawed and imperfect, yet so totally easy to relate to, and to love. I felt like the end of this was a touch on the predictable side, and yet...

    This book was a very interesting story where Ellen, a woman in her 30s, realizes she still has feelings for her ex from many years ago. One day she runs into him in the city and is met with a challenge of who she wants to be with more: Her husband or her ex. I found this book a lit...

    Es como si alguien hubiese decidido coger todo lo que detesto y hubiese escrito un libro con ello LOL, qué malo por merlín. Lástima que no se puedan dar estrellas negativas porque esta cosa las merece. ...

    I'm unsure about this book (but I REALLY wanted to love it)...part of me wanted to give it 4 stars and then there were times when I was thinking 2-3. I probably would have given it 3.5 stars, but that option isn't on goodreads. I don't want to say too much because many of you are plann...

    I remember when Emily Giffin's first book came out, and since it dealt with cheating, I did not pick it up for the longest time. Then I read a thoroughly positive review of it (I think on chicklitbooks.com, which may no longer be around) and I decided I had to see what the fuss was abo...

    A modern yuppie romance. Newlywed Ellen bumps into Leo, her old boyfriend, in the street in New York City on a rainy day. Stunned, she goes to a nearby coffee shop to gather herself. Leo calls her cell phone and asks where she is, showing up a few moments later. They have coffee and...

    Emily Giffin is a very talented writer. Her first two books were nearly impossible to put down, she wrote the main characters so sympathetically and realistically that the stories truly came alive. Her third book was decent - not as mind-blowingly good as the first two, but still okay....

    I had both good and bad reactions to this book. Good: it definitely sucked me in. It was hard not to be constantly wondering what choices Ellen would make next. The last 30 pages were impossible to put down. I also though Giffin did a good job of examining love and choice from a variet...

    I was very disappointed by this book. I really liked her other novels and found them to be quick, fun, beach-reads that still conjured up some feelings and life lessons. I felt nothing with this book except anger towards the main character and sort of annoyed at certain scenarios that ...

    The thing I like about Emily Giffin is that she doesn't talk down to her readers. Nor does she assume that everyone who wants to read a light, fun, chick book gives two hoots about what brand of clothing the heroine wears. Her books aren't cerebral by any means, but they're smart. ...

    This book was awful. God, it was so awful. It isn't even worth a full review and so I will try to summarize it in a few lines. Ellen: I love Andy SO SO SO MUCH! Andy: I'm practically the epitome of a good person, and the author paints me in a way that makes me seem perfect. So yay:...

    So, I was totally psyched to read the latest offering from Emily Giffin. I loved, loved, loved her other novels. But her latest is different. It starts out slowly, almost slow enough to make me quit. And the protagonist, Ellen Graham, isn?t exactly likable. She is a photographer ...

    This book spoke to me because it mirrored my own struggle with my decision to end my marriage. At times it was as if the author was in my head, telling my story, although unlike Ellen, I didn't stay with my husband. Overall I really liked the book. However, there were a few things t...

    I'm curious to know whether Emily Giffin can write a book without a destroyed marriage or infidelity. Because every one of the books that I've read of hers include this, and not just as a secondary theme, but as the main plot of the book. Honestly, its monotonous. Infidelity is not at ...

    please, please, please don't bother... the in demand shelves at the library beckoned...i listened...and am now a national spokeswoman to say, please do not bother. save yourself. re-read an old favorite book & you'll be oh that much happier, i guarantee :) ...

    It took me days to read this book which a chick lit book takes 1 or 2 days to read. I found the main character Ellen as a whiny, ungrateful brat. That is funny because the author wrote a sad background story for her: poor, pittsburgh breed, lost her mother as teen. However I felt angry...

    I was very disappointed by this book. I really liked her other novels and found them to be quick, fun, beach-reads that still conjured up some feelings and life lessons. I felt nothing with this book except anger towards the main character and sort of annoyed at certain scenarios that ...

    The thing I like about Emily Giffin is that she doesn't talk down to her readers. Nor does she assume that everyone who wants to read a light, fun, chick book gives two hoots about what brand of clothing the heroine wears. Her books aren't cerebral by any means, but they're smart. ...

    This book was awful. God, it was so awful. It isn't even worth a full review and so I will try to summarize it in a few lines. Ellen: I love Andy SO SO SO MUCH! Andy: I'm practically the epitome of a good person, and the author paints me in a way that makes me seem perfect. So yay:...

    Possibly never have I disliked a book more than I did this one. If possible- I would give this book a negative star rating. Unfortunately goodreads will not allow me to do this. So instead I?ll describe why my initial response upon finishing this book was one of depression at the rea...

    Love the One You're With is a standalone, women's fiction/chick-lit novel written by author Emily Giffin. Ms. Giffin's novels have been hit or miss with me, and when they miss, they miss big time. I have zero appreciation for marital affairs or romantic deception in general that end in...

    This was another great book by Emily Giffen staying true to her form of regular people making some tough and non-conventional choices. I both disliked, and related to Ellen. I also liked how the scope of this book covered both the modern love story (in that the one we end up with is ra...

    First off, I couldn't put this book down, I started it on Sunday (late morning) and finished it Monday evening. This is my second favorite Emily Giffin book (behind Something Borrowed). There was a similar dynamic between Ellen and Margot, much like that of Rachel and Darcy in Somet...

    2.5 stars. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice ...

    I remember when Emily Giffin's first book came out, and since it dealt with cheating, I did not pick it up for the longest time. Then I read a thoroughly positive review of it (I think on chicklitbooks.com, which may no longer be around) and I decided I had to see what the fuss was abo...

    A modern yuppie romance. Newlywed Ellen bumps into Leo, her old boyfriend, in the street in New York City on a rainy day. Stunned, she goes to a nearby coffee shop to gather herself. Leo calls her cell phone and asks where she is, showing up a few moments later. They have coffee and...

    Emily Giffin is a very talented writer. Her first two books were nearly impossible to put down, she wrote the main characters so sympathetically and realistically that the stories truly came alive. Her third book was decent - not as mind-blowingly good as the first two, but still okay....

    I had both good and bad reactions to this book. Good: it definitely sucked me in. It was hard not to be constantly wondering what choices Ellen would make next. The last 30 pages were impossible to put down. I also though Giffin did a good job of examining love and choice from a variet...

    So, I was totally psyched to read the latest offering from Emily Giffin. I loved, loved, loved her other novels. But her latest is different. It starts out slowly, almost slow enough to make me quit. And the protagonist, Ellen Graham, isn?t exactly likable. She is a photographer ...

    I have to admit that I do like some "chick-lit" and that I have read all of Emily Giffin's books. That said, I really didn't think that this book was anything special. The plot was predictable, and the characters weren't particularly memorable. Giffin's first two books, "Something Borr...

    I love Emily Giffin?s writing and rank Something Borrowed as one of my favourite chick-lit books ever. I also enjoyed Something Blue and Baby Proof and was excited when I finally saw Love the One You?re With at the second-hand bookswop I go to. I quite liked the idea of the stor...

    The story began with Ellen Graham, who reasoned she?s got OCD and thus counted the days since she got married with Andy. And it had been eight years and sixteen days since she heard his voice again. And bumped into him while walking the streets. Her ex lover?s voice. Her former fla...

    Emily Giffin could very well be put in the category of genius women writers. When I was growing up, my mother would devour romance novels by Danielle Steel and Barbara Delinsky. When I asked her why she read so many of them, she told me that each of the books had a resonating undertone...

    A fine example of the current state of "chick lit" as the protagonists move from the search for the soul mate to what happens after the wedding. Here, our plucky girl in the city has just married a smart, successful, rich, nice, handsome guy who adores her and who happens to be the bro...

    I really enjoyed this book. The subject matter really hit home for me. Having been in a simialr situation as Ellen I could relate to her plight and understand how confused and in turmoil she was. That first love who you love with such passion and then who breaks your heart is tough to ...

    Another amazing book by one of my favorite authors! My favorite thing about Emily Giffin's writing style is her characters, always so real - flawed and imperfect, yet so totally easy to relate to, and to love. I felt like the end of this was a touch on the predictable side, and yet...

    This book was a very interesting story where Ellen, a woman in her 30s, realizes she still has feelings for her ex from many years ago. One day she runs into him in the city and is met with a challenge of who she wants to be with more: Her husband or her ex. I found this book a lit...

    Es como si alguien hubiese decidido coger todo lo que detesto y hubiese escrito un libro con ello LOL, qué malo por merlín. Lástima que no se puedan dar estrellas negativas porque esta cosa las merece. ...

    I'm unsure about this book (but I REALLY wanted to love it)...part of me wanted to give it 4 stars and then there were times when I was thinking 2-3. I probably would have given it 3.5 stars, but that option isn't on goodreads. I don't want to say too much because many of you are plann...

    2.5 stars I didn't like this book... The characters were unlikable, shallow, stupid even. It put me in a bad mood just reading it. At which point I ordinarily would have just stopped reading. But a friend from work had loaned it to me and I hated to not finish it. (I really enjoy Jill...

    So, I was totally psyched to read the latest offering from Emily Giffin. I loved, loved, loved her other novels. But her latest is different. It starts out slowly, almost slow enough to make me quit. And the protagonist, Ellen Graham, isn?t exactly likable. She is a photographer ...

    I have to admit that I do like some "chick-lit" and that I have read all of Emily Giffin's books. That said, I really didn't think that this book was anything special. The plot was predictable, and the characters weren't particularly memorable. Giffin's first two books, "Something Borr...

    So I started sticky-noting this book on page 8. (Well, I started on page 12 and then retroactively stickied something on page 8.) I will sometimes mark up books I own when I feel like it, but I usually prefer to use sticky notes if I find something I really want to reference in my r...

    This book spoke to me because it mirrored my own struggle with my decision to end my marriage. At times it was as if the author was in my head, telling my story, although unlike Ellen, I didn't stay with my husband. Overall I really liked the book. However, there were a few things t...

    I'm curious to know whether Emily Giffin can write a book without a destroyed marriage or infidelity. Because every one of the books that I've read of hers include this, and not just as a secondary theme, but as the main plot of the book. Honestly, its monotonous. Infidelity is not at ...

    please, please, please don't bother... the in demand shelves at the library beckoned...i listened...and am now a national spokeswoman to say, please do not bother. save yourself. re-read an old favorite book & you'll be oh that much happier, i guarantee :) ...

    It took me days to read this book which a chick lit book takes 1 or 2 days to read. I found the main character Ellen as a whiny, ungrateful brat. That is funny because the author wrote a sad background story for her: poor, pittsburgh breed, lost her mother as teen. However I felt angry...

    I love Emily Giffin?s writing and rank Something Borrowed as one of my favourite chick-lit books ever. I also enjoyed Something Blue and Baby Proof and was excited when I finally saw Love the One You?re With at the second-hand bookswop I go to. I quite liked the idea of the stor...

    The story began with Ellen Graham, who reasoned she?s got OCD and thus counted the days since she got married with Andy. And it had been eight years and sixteen days since she heard his voice again. And bumped into him while walking the streets. Her ex lover?s voice. Her former fla...

    Emily Giffin could very well be put in the category of genius women writers. When I was growing up, my mother would devour romance novels by Danielle Steel and Barbara Delinsky. When I asked her why she read so many of them, she told me that each of the books had a resonating undertone...

    A fine example of the current state of "chick lit" as the protagonists move from the search for the soul mate to what happens after the wedding. Here, our plucky girl in the city has just married a smart, successful, rich, nice, handsome guy who adores her and who happens to be the bro...

    I really enjoyed this book. The subject matter really hit home for me. Having been in a simialr situation as Ellen I could relate to her plight and understand how confused and in turmoil she was. That first love who you love with such passion and then who breaks your heart is tough to ...

    Another amazing book by one of my favorite authors! My favorite thing about Emily Giffin's writing style is her characters, always so real - flawed and imperfect, yet so totally easy to relate to, and to love. I felt like the end of this was a touch on the predictable side, and yet...

    This book was a very interesting story where Ellen, a woman in her 30s, realizes she still has feelings for her ex from many years ago. One day she runs into him in the city and is met with a challenge of who she wants to be with more: Her husband or her ex. I found this book a lit...

    Es como si alguien hubiese decidido coger todo lo que detesto y hubiese escrito un libro con ello LOL, qué malo por merlín. Lástima que no se puedan dar estrellas negativas porque esta cosa las merece. ...

    I was very disappointed by this book. I really liked her other novels and found them to be quick, fun, beach-reads that still conjured up some feelings and life lessons. I felt nothing with this book except anger towards the main character and sort of annoyed at certain scenarios that ...

    The thing I like about Emily Giffin is that she doesn't talk down to her readers. Nor does she assume that everyone who wants to read a light, fun, chick book gives two hoots about what brand of clothing the heroine wears. Her books aren't cerebral by any means, but they're smart. ...

    This book was awful. God, it was so awful. It isn't even worth a full review and so I will try to summarize it in a few lines. Ellen: I love Andy SO SO SO MUCH! Andy: I'm practically the epitome of a good person, and the author paints me in a way that makes me seem perfect. So yay:...

    Possibly never have I disliked a book more than I did this one. If possible- I would give this book a negative star rating. Unfortunately goodreads will not allow me to do this. So instead I?ll describe why my initial response upon finishing this book was one of depression at the rea...

    Love the One You're With is a standalone, women's fiction/chick-lit novel written by author Emily Giffin. Ms. Giffin's novels have been hit or miss with me, and when they miss, they miss big time. I have zero appreciation for marital affairs or romantic deception in general that end in...

    This was another great book by Emily Giffen staying true to her form of regular people making some tough and non-conventional choices. I both disliked, and related to Ellen. I also liked how the scope of this book covered both the modern love story (in that the one we end up with is ra...

    First off, I couldn't put this book down, I started it on Sunday (late morning) and finished it Monday evening. This is my second favorite Emily Giffin book (behind Something Borrowed). There was a similar dynamic between Ellen and Margot, much like that of Rachel and Darcy in Somet...

    2.5 stars. Love, not as a surge of passion, but as a choice to commit to something, someone, no matter what obstacles or temptations stand in the way. And maybe making that choice, again and again, day in and day out, year after year, says more about love than never having a choice ...

    I have to admit that I do like some "chick-lit" and that I have read all of Emily Giffin's books. That said, I really didn't think that this book was anything special. The plot was predictable, and the characters weren't particularly memorable. Giffin's first two books, "Something Borr...

    So I started sticky-noting this book on page 8. (Well, I started on page 12 and then retroactively stickied something on page 8.) I will sometimes mark up books I own when I feel like it, but I usually prefer to use sticky notes if I find something I really want to reference in my r...

    This book spoke to me because it mirrored my own struggle with my decision to end my marriage. At times it was as if the author was in my head, telling my story, although unlike Ellen, I didn't stay with my husband. Overall I really liked the book. However, there were a few things t...

    I'm curious to know whether Emily Giffin can write a book without a destroyed marriage or infidelity. Because every one of the books that I've read of hers include this, and not just as a secondary theme, but as the main plot of the book. Honestly, its monotonous. Infidelity is not at ...

    please, please, please don't bother... the in demand shelves at the library beckoned...i listened...and am now a national spokeswoman to say, please do not bother. save yourself. re-read an old favorite book & you'll be oh that much happier, i guarantee :) ...

    It took me days to read this book which a chick lit book takes 1 or 2 days to read. I found the main character Ellen as a whiny, ungrateful brat. That is funny because the author wrote a sad background story for her: poor, pittsburgh breed, lost her mother as teen. However I felt angry...

    I love Emily Giffin?s writing and rank Something Borrowed as one of my favourite chick-lit books ever. I also enjoyed Something Blue and Baby Proof and was excited when I finally saw Love the One You?re With at the second-hand bookswop I go to. I quite liked the idea of the stor...

    The story began with Ellen Graham, who reasoned she?s got OCD and thus counted the days since she got married with Andy. And it had been eight years and sixteen days since she heard his voice again. And bumped into him while walking the streets. Her ex lover?s voice. Her former fla...

    Emily Giffin could very well be put in the category of genius women writers. When I was growing up, my mother would devour romance novels by Danielle Steel and Barbara Delinsky. When I asked her why she read so many of them, she told me that each of the books had a resonating undertone...

    A fine example of the current state of "chick lit" as the protagonists move from the search for the soul mate to what happens after the wedding. Here, our plucky girl in the city has just married a smart, successful, rich, nice, handsome guy who adores her and who happens to be the bro...

    I really enjoyed this book. The subject matter really hit home for me. Having been in a simialr situation as Ellen I could relate to her plight and understand how confused and in turmoil she was. That first love who you love with such passion and then who breaks your heart is tough to ...

    Another amazing book by one of my favorite authors! My favorite thing about Emily Giffin's writing style is her characters, always so real - flawed and imperfect, yet so totally easy to relate to, and to love. I felt like the end of this was a touch on the predictable side, and yet...

    I was very disappointed by this book. I really liked her other novels and found them to be quick, fun, beach-reads that still conjured up some feelings and life lessons. I felt nothing with this book except anger towards the main character and sort of annoyed at certain scenarios that ...

    The thing I like about Emily Giffin is that she doesn't talk down to her readers. Nor does she assume that everyone who wants to read a light, fun, chick book gives two hoots about what brand of clothing the heroine wears. Her books aren't cerebral by any means, but they're smart. ...

    This book was awful. God, it was so awful. It isn't even worth a full review and so I will try to summarize it in a few lines. Ellen: I love Andy SO SO SO MUCH! Andy: I'm practically the epitome of a good person, and the author paints me in a way that makes me seem perfect. So yay:...

    Possibly never have I disliked a book more than I did this one. If possible- I would give this book a negative star rating. Unfortunately goodreads will not allow me to do this. So instead I?ll describe why my initial response upon finishing this book was one of depression at the rea...

    Love the One You're With is a standalone, women's fiction/chick-lit novel written by author Emily Giffin. Ms. Giffin's novels have been hit or miss with me, and when they miss, they miss big time. I have zero appreciation for marital affairs or romantic deception in general that end in...

    This was another great book by Emily Giffen staying true to her form of regular people making some tough and non-conventional choices. I both disliked, and related to Ellen. I also liked how the scope of this book covered both the modern love story (in that the one we end up with is ra...
