So funny! Love the movie too
I got to go through @Mdargusch ‘s and @emilyhaldi ‘s castoffs tonight. Of course I found some books to take home with me . . . including the bottom three that I gave to Emily last year during a purge. 😆🙄
Bridget Jones's Diary was an easy four star read for me. It's certainly not the best book ever written, but it's fun, British and so relatable. Who hasn't had body insecurities, faced a stinking hangover or felt the judgement of others? I'd recommend this book for fans of the film - read it and fall in love with Bridget all over again!
My full review is up on my blog now 📚
A fun ,light read. It does get annoying though. Cannot wait to finish it,just to be done with it,lol
After the whole book being about how miserable people in long term relationships are how am I supposed to feel optimistic about Mark and Bridget and unlike the book this is based on, Pride and Prejudice, no one seems to learn their lesson (one of my pet peeves when it comes to books, I mean what's the point then?). It was enjoyable enough to read and I finished it in one sitting, I also see how it may have worked better as a column than a book.
1. LOL people staring at you on the subway funny.
2. Happy by Pharrell
4. Vivi my office mate is always cheerful and kind.
5. Coming home and seeing Kili sprawled across all three couch cushions.
I had read Pride and Prejudice and Bridget Jones's Diary before I saw the BJD movie. The movie was my first exposure to Colin Firth and later I finally saw the BBC P & P miniseries. Swoon! I watched it umpteen more times with my daughter and then read P & P a few more times and also read all the other Austen books. So the BJD movie really kicked my Austen love into high gear. #firstimpressions #austeninaugust @Crinoline_Laphroaig
It‘s so hot that i‘m too lazy even to read... so i opted for an audiobook instead while enjoying the spoils of staying the weekend at mama‘s house! 🍰☕️
#Aprella #CruelWorld #SingleLadies After my catch up trifecta of ?prompts, I'm just combining 2 today. (Busy week!)?Bridget Jones is the ultimate single lady in book & movie & she knew what a cruel world it was for a singleton to be surrounded by so many smug married couples. Luckily she had some great single 'ladies' as friends since it took a while for Mark Darcy to put a? on it even if he did say he liked her, "very much, just as you are."?
Wow!!! What a fun and amazing package from @ReadingRover came today. I ❤️everything. I squealed with delight when I opened each item. The Loki keychain might be my favorite thing.
I‘ll also admit that the macaroon confused me for a little while; sometimes I‘m not the brightest bulb. 😅 It is fantastic. So is the pen.
Your note was very sweet.
Thank you! Thank you! Another example of why Littens are so awesome! #randomactsofbookishkindnesd
@Amabear #booksandshelfiesM18 Day 4 (late 🙈) Your current read. This is one of my current reads on my kindle easy to read on bus to work in the morning. I love this book if I‘m honest I see a lot off me in her 🤣🤣 so I can relate to her lots. I also write a diary xx
Catching up with #FierceFeb! My favourite #bachelorette is Bridget Jones, who always makes me laugh ❤️ but seriously, the first two books with single Bridget are the best. Dob‘t even get me started on Bridget Jones‘ baby 🙄🙄
#FierceFeb #NeuroticSociety Bridget Jones puts some good fun into neurosis & is a great neurotic leading character so I thought of her first for today's prompt. After all it's Monday (& it definitely was a Monday kind of day!) 😬& I need a little fun. Bridget (& Colin Firth as Mark Darcy in the movie version) 😍never fails to make me smile. I should probably go ahead & do double duty & make her my candidate for tomorrow's #bachelorette prompt.👍😀
Bitsy as Mark Darcy
This was hilarious! I can‘t believe I had never read it before. There are so many things that I can relate to Bridget on. Now I want to watch the movie again since I haven‘t seen it for years.
I still have books on the go from 2017, but these will be my #FirstReadoftheYear. I knew I'd like Rupi Kaur's poetry, but Bridget Jones? It's not the sort of thing I usually go for. I'm trying to read outside my go-to genres though, so why not? Much to my surprise, I've started enjoying it; even lol'd once. I doubt it'll make my list of all-time faves, but I'm not hating it so far, so yay! #1stBookof2018 #NewYearReads #JaninBooks18
Written in true diary format, Bridget Jones is a refreshing reminder that simply being an adult does not automatically equate to having one's "stuff" together. I enjoyed Bridget's flashes of wit and insightfulness and I felt for her when things went horribly (usually awkwardly) awry. It's a testament to Fielding's skill as a writer, and also a sad commentary on our society, that so many of Bridget's struggles are still relatable 20 years later.
Full Quote: "When someone leaves you, apart from missing them, apart from the fact that the whole little world you've created together collapses, and that everything you see or do reminds you of them, the worst is the thought that they tried you out and, in the end, the whole sum of parts adds up to you got stamped REJECT by the one you love."

I think I‘m in the wrong age group to get the flavor of this book. I had nothing in common with the main character. I‘ve never been a chic lit fan either so that could be the problem. It‘s been so long ago that I was in the dating years I really can‘t relate. They didn‘t do things back then the way they do now. I‘m sure there are lots of people who liked this. I just didn‘t get it. 3🌟

1️⃣ I haven't read these yet. These genres are usually outside my comfort zone, but I'm trying to read more of them because I feel like I should expand my literary horizons.
2️⃣ I very rarely bail on books because I'm usually too damned stubborn to quit, and I'm always hopeful that if I keep going, I'll finally get to something good. Sometimes my persistence pays off; often it doesn't.
