"Something Borrowed's" Emily Giffin's newest "First Comes Love" Adaptation in the Works

I don’t think I’ve read any of Emily Giffin’s novels and yet somehow she’s achieved best selling author status without me. Best selling as in 11 million worldwide. 

I skipped Something Borrowed, both Giffin’s novel about a woman who falls for her best friend’s fiance and the 2011 rom-com screen adaptation starring Kate Hudson.

I didn’t read her follow-up Something Blue either. It’s currently in development. 

Her most recent book First Comes Love, released by Random House June 28th debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. No surprise then, that the book has already been optioned by Hollywood.

Here’s the rundown on First Comes Love from the publisher

Growing up, Josie and Meredith Garland shared a loving, if sometimes contentious, relationship. Josie was impulsive, spirited, and outgoing, Meredith hardworking, thoughtful, and reserved. When tragedy strikes, their delicate bond splinters.
Fifteen years later, Josie and Meredith are in their late thirties, following very different paths. Josie, a first grade teacher, is single—and this close to swearing off dating for good. What she wants more than the right guy, however, is to become a mother—a feeling that is heightened when her ex-boyfriend’s daughter is assigned to her class. Determined to have the future she’s always wanted, Josie decides to take matters into her own hands.
On the outside, Meredith is the model daughter with the perfect life. A successful attorney, she’s married to a wonderful man, and together they’re raising a beautiful four-year-old daughter. Yet lately Meredith feels dissatisfied and restless, secretly wondering if she chose the life that was expected of her rather than the one she truly desired.
As the anniversary of their tragedy looms, and painful secrets from the past begin to surface, Josie and Meredith must not only confront the issues that divide them but also come to terms with their own choices. In their journey toward understanding and forgiveness, both sisters discover that they need each other more than they knew—and that in the search for true happiness, love always comes first.
