Bridget's idea of a #Manhunt probably isn't the first definition to come to everyone's mind, but it does provide a lot of amusement.

Read this in a few hours today. Was ok, I guess I‘m just not a fan of reading in the style of a diary. On the plus side a quick and easy read if you‘re looking for something on the lighter side.

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 📚

hlgreenfield I don't know if it's because I've seen the movie so many times and so had certain expectations who j weren't met, but I didn't love this book and I really expected to! Maybe I should give it another read now that I know it's very different from the film. 3mo

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.

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

Always trying to improve herself but never quite reaching the end goal. I can relate. Still she is lovable, awkward, a good friend (with good friends) and always willing to have a laugh. V. Good!

#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

4thhouseontheleft Now I am curious...what is the macaron? An eraser? 1y
MaleficentBookDragon @4thhouseontheleft I thought that too. I already have a lip balm shaped like a macaroon so I tried to open it to see if it is that. It opens up, but is empty. So, I can use it to put some Advil in there. I‘m not sure if that is its real purpose, but I‘m going with it. 😊 1y

#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.👍😀

The first book I read for the "My height in books" challenge. I sincerely hope this book isn't representative for single women in their 30's. That would make them just as "crazy" as teenage girls rambling all over the place on explosive hormones. Exhausting.

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

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I really want the two Rupi Kaur books!! 📚😌 1y
writerlibrarian Rupi Kaur's poetry is wonderful and emotional. Bridget I read in zigzag a long time ago. I rather read the inspiration aka Austen. Bridget is funny but a bit too hysterical for my taste. 1y

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🌟

Leniverse I'm with you. Didn't like it at 20, not interested now. 2y
Kaye I‘m glad I‘m not the only one @leniverse. I thought I‘d be in the minority. 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes I haven't read the book but I did see one movie and it was enough to tell me to STAY AWAY. It's so problematic it should probably be taught in a womens studies class. 2y
Kaye You could be right there @NatashacBarnes I know I didn‘t find much of a redeeming quality in it. I thought it was just because I don‘t like that type of book. 2y

#BookNerdConfessions #FallintoBooks (cont in the comments)

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.

TK-421 3️⃣ I struggle with rating books. I HATE the 5 star system! Litsy's Pick/So-So/Pan/Bail is a bit easier for me, but it's limited too. If it were up to me, I'd probably go with a score out of 10. I'd still agonize over it, but at least I'd have more options!

4️⃣ I've never given a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating to a book; not even my favourites! I've never given a book a ⭐️rating either, even if I hated it.
2y
TK-421 5️⃣ It sometimes takes me hours to write a post. As you can probably tell, I have trouble expressing myself within the 451 character limit, so I have to keep editing until I manage to convey my thoughts as succinctly as possible. Obviously I didn't bother trying to be brief for this post. 2y
RebL I spend too much time on description too. Sometimes I won't post because I don't feel I have the time to put in the kind of thought I want to express. 2y
See All 6 Comments
TK-421 @RebL Yes, exactly! I'm glad it's not just me! 👊 2y
Leniverse I so agree with you on 3️⃣. And I might also have a brevity problem. 😂 One of several reasons why I don't use Twitter. 2y
Billypar #5 - so true. This is actually one of the reasons I love Litsy because it cuts me off. For the same reason, I've posted zero Goodreads reviews- star ratings only for me. Otherwise I would spend hours, only to reread the review and be disappointed with the final product (I know this from writing movie reviews, and the material for those is so much less complex than a book). 2y
