From Goodreads: Helen Fielding’s devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton launched a genre and transcended the pages of fiction to become a cultural icon.
Bought from Amazon
What I Loved: Bridget was a wonderful mess of a woman that I think most singledoms can relate too on some level. Mark Darcy is so straight-laced and adorable that it is hard not to fall in love with him. Daniel is the perfect cad with just enough hotness that you don’t totally hate him. Put them all together and you have one fun mess!
What I Liked: The family, friends, and co-workers are really the glue that keeps this book going. They made you laugh out loud and kept our Bridget grounded at times.
Complaints: Unless Bridges is 4’10”, the weights translated in the US version had her being a size 6. That isn’t even pudgy.
Why I gave it a 3: I liked the book but I am not likely to read it again. It was fun, quick, and even though a bit annoying at times–it was what I expected. If you like the movie (which I love) you will enjoy reading this book.
Who I would recommend this too: Chick-lit and Contemporary (light) romance readers.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
