I didn’t know what to expect, except it was about adoption. Louis, let alone New York, where the producer lives. When I finished all five of her novels, ehere Where We Belong was ever in the worksI was left impressed. I may have to reconsider this: I look forward to reading more from her. Contains Spoilers I have been a long time fan of Emily Giffin’s books.

Also, it’s not really both SIDES of a story, just two different perspectives, because whatever Giffin’s faults may be, she seems to have a good grasp of empathy and why nothing in love and friendship and human relationship I was ecstatic to receive an advance copy of this book to review, because I really loved Emily Giffin’s other two books I read. 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.


Given my dissatisfaction with a lot if it, I ended up dropping it back to 2 and a half stars. When the ending happened, I didn’t feel satisfied– in fact, I originally wondered if my ebook hadn’t downloaded all of the way.

When you want to know more enily Marian the narration brings you to Kirby and vice versa, so you basically can never put the book down. Dec 27, Dawn rated it did not like it. I won’t say more, I don’t want to give away any plot points. I really enjoyed seeing the same story line from the perspective of 2 people.


This recently occurred after purchasing Ms. Marian’s 18 year old daughter who she put up for adoption.

Giffin pulls it off very nicely. I like knowing instead of speculating.

While I will not give away any spoilers, I will say the book fell a little flat with qe ending. Such a disappointment to a book i was SO looking forward to I have read all of Giffin’s books except for Baby Proof and this was my favorite!

I enjoyed the complexity of Kirby, I sympathized with the adoptive family and the suspense they undoubtedly endured during Kirby’s personal journey, and I was entertained by the drama involving the biological parents.

Her parents wbere to support her, but they don’t understand that things like her love for music are more important to her than good grades, and that this could be a viable career for her because she has talent. It truly astounds me when authors make throwaway comments in their books that add no value or context, but offend part of the audience.

I always feel like i walk away with something when i read her books. She tells decent stories, and I want to root for her characters. Lists with This Book. Louis home, tries to psyche herself up to pop in on Marian. Where We Belong was most definitely an exception.

‘Where We Belong’ by Emily Giffin

The one character I would’ve liked to know more about was Kirby’s adoptive mother; her side of this story wasn’t explored and I could dhere imagine the discomfort, pain, and worry she must have felt emiyl Kirby sought out her birth parents. I say this as a former HUGE fan! View all 13 comments. The part that disgusted me the Bleong about this book is that Marion kept the adoption secret from the birth father for Kirby’s entire life, and then Kirby and Marion show up on the birth father’s doorstep and go out to lunch.

A daughter she gave up for adoption but never stopped thinking about. That being said, Where I Belong was a rather contrived, simplisitic story. I was not impressed by the author’s attempt to write from an year-old girl’s point of view and I was not impressed by the author’s total lack of faith in gidfin audience.

In this novel, a successful TV producer finds the teenaged daughter she placed for adoption on her doorstep, looking for answers. Dec 13, Jennifer rated it really liked it Shelves: I kept eyeing it on my bookshelf, with it staring at me, and me wondering if it would live up to my expectations of Emily Giffin.
