Soundtrack Saturday – Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin

Soundtrack Saturdays an opportunity to share a song I think would fit on the soundtrack for the book I’m currently reading.

Feel free to join in! Either leave your soundtrack pick or the link to your soundtrack post in the comments.

From the author’s website:
Something Borrowed tells the story of Rachel, a young attorney living and working in Manhattan. Rachel has always been the consummate good girl—until her thirtieth birthday, when her best friend, Darcy, throws her a party. That night, after too many drinks, Rachel ends up in bed with Darcy’s fiancé.
Although she wakes up determined to put the one-night fling behind her, Rachel is horrified to discover that she has genuine feelings for the one guy she should run from. As the September wedding date nears, Rachel knows she has to make a choice. In doing so, she discovers that the lines between right and wrong can be blurry, endings aren’t always neat, and sometimes you have to risk all to win true happiness.


Soundtrack Song: “The Secret’s In The Telling” by Dashboard Confessional
You can always count on Dashboard Confessional for angst, but I also love the emotion and struggle found in this song. It came on while I was working the other day and in it I immediate recognized the conflict that Rachel faces in Something Borrowed. Feeling overwhelmingly “compelled to do what [has] been forbidden” and the “act of defiance” in finally not rolling over for Darcy but going full force for what she wants.

What song would you add to the soundtrack for this book or the one you’re currently reading?
