The #1 national bestseller by Helen Fielding, author of the new novel Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy (October 2013)Bridget Jones's Diary is the devastatingly self-aware, laugh-out-loud account of a year in the life of a thirty-something Singleton on a permanent doomed quest for self-improvement. Caught between the joys of Singleton fun, and the fear of dying alone and being found three weeks later half eaten by an Alsatian; tortured by Smug Married friends asking, "How's your love life?" with lascivious, yet patronizing leers, Bridget resolves to: reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1.5 inches, visit the gym three times a week not just to buy a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult and learn to program the VCR. With a blend of flighty charm, existential gloom, and endearing self-deprecation, Bridget Jones's Diary has touched a raw nerve with millions of readers the world round. Read it and laughbefore you cry, "Bridget Jones is me!"

Perhaps after 22 years this falls into the genre of historical chick-lit and one can be reminded how much more clearly they could see their life when not completely obsessed with their weight and calorie intake. Geesh! …I liked the movie better even though it‘s been a while since I last watched it.

I had high hopes for this book because I love all the movies and find them sweet and hysterical, but I was disappointed with the novel. It's super short yet took me a couple months to get through. Since it was written in the 90s there are definitely some themes that didn't age well, like an unhealthy obsession with body image. And Bridget Jones is a character that doesn't have dimension without a man by her side which was so disappointing to me.

Billypar I've never seen this edition, but if you took the title off, I might have guessed it was Stephen King. What terrifying cover art for a romantic comedy 👀👄 11mo

@Eggs and @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I love Bridget Jones, and when I was younger and read the first two books I could relate. Both Bridget and I were young and a mess. When I picked up the third book, it felt like getting back together with an old friend. We both had grown up and been through so much, but Bridget was still a mess!! Her antics were maddening! Get your sh!t together! Its not cute anymore!

Eggs 😂🤣😂 12mo
rubyslippersreads One of my comfort books, but it‘s hard to believe the 25th anniversary edition just came out. 😏 12mo
Tera66 @rubyslippersreads I so get how this would be a comfort read, when I picked up Crazy About the Boy it felt like sitting down to coffee with a friend I hadn't seen in a long time. I haven't seen the movies, should I or will I be disappointed? 12mo

Had I read this book when I was in my early 30s, I possibly would have liked it, related to it a little.

Reading it as a world-weary 50-something, though, it‘s appeal is significantly lessened. Sorry, but I just want to slap Bridget and her friends, and tell them to grow the heck up.

wanderinglynn 😆 I feel that way too. 1y
KathyWheeler That could be why I didn‘t love it either. I was in my 50s and found myself just irritated with the people in the book. 1y

I could not get into this book. I didn't care for the writing style first off. Like, I know it's supposed to be a diary but the lack of pronouns bugged me.
And the fact that Bridget was so obsessed with her weight, when she was NOT EVEN 130 LBS!!!! 🤦🏼‍♀️
None of the characters seemed likeable, and who knows, maybe it gets better. But by 'March', I was done.
Might watch the movie just to see how it ends. (And also for Colin Firth/Hugh Grant)

4⭐️ I quite liked the book; a nice fun read. There were some differences in the book that weren‘t in the movie, but for the most part, the movie adaptation came pretty close to the book. It was a fairly easy read, in that I was able to finish the book within a few hours. #2020 #movietiein #bookreview #bookstagram #epistolary #fiction #contemporary #bridgetjonesdiary #pemberlittens

Thanks for the tag @Cosmos_Moon ❤️
Bridget doesn't necessarily remind me of myself, but there are many things about her that resonate with me.
(1) I like badminton but never played it professionally. I'm really into watching soccer, especially Champions League games, but I don't have a favourite team
(2) I'm grateful for the lovely mentoring team I've become part of at my school
Would you like to play @KVanRead @CaliforniaCay ?

I had planned to pace myself for a buddy read of Bridget and finish just before our watch parties in a couple of week... Epic fail. I started and couldn‘t stop.

I loved this 90s-era retelling of Pride & Prejudice, especially picking out characters and plot points from the original. I laughed out loud many, many times. Bridget is a remarkably goofy character, though, and I had a hard time seeing much Lizzy-ish about her.

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

#PemberLittens

Saknicole I love this book! Even if as I get older I feel like Bridget‘s obsession with being tiny tiny and her smoking relate less and less with my idea of struggling 20s-30s. I love her spirit and ineptitude! 2y
sprainedbrain @Saknicole yes! I was rolling my eyes a lot at her thinking she was fat at 129 lbs, but she was constantly struggling with everything and I was just 🤣. Her dinner parties! 2y
Ruthiella I read this in the ‘90s when I was in my 30s and single. I weighed maybe 135lbs (I‘m 5‘6”) , thought I was fat, and smoked liked a chimney. I related v. much to Bridget! 2y

Anyone up for a #BuddyRead and/or a watch party for Bridget Jones?

Here‘s my tentative plan, but I‘m open to suggestions:

The book has 12 chapters: for those who want to buddy read, read at your own pace from October 1-15.

I would be willing to host 1 or 2 watch parties the weekend of 10/16—10/18. Based on sign-ups so far, I‘m thinking Friday 10/16 around 7 pm my time (US Central) and Sunday 10/18 at 11 am my time.

Thoughts? 😊

#PemberLittens

sprainedbrain @Blackink_WhitePaper and @AnneCecilie I *think* I figured the time zones correctly and I‘m hoping that the 10/18 showing will work for you both? 11 am my time is evening for both of you. 🤔 (edited) 2y

More ideas for movies and/or watch parties.

I‘m planning to read P&P & Zombies in October and have been dying to watch the movie for years just for that casting.😍 I‘m happy to host a watch party and/or buddy read.

Same with Bridget... I may be the only person I know who hasn‘t seen the movie, but I have to read the book first. 😂

I read Death Comes to Pemberley years ago, but I‘ve heard the film is better. I plan to find out!

quietjenn I'm pretty down for all of these - at least in terms of watching! I'm in the same boat as you with Death Comes ... I read and was sort of eh about the book, but would like to see the adaptation. I haven't seen or read Zombies, although everything I've heard about the movie makes me think it should be good fun.

#3Books I haven‘t read but should...

There‘s a list out there of BBC‘s top 100 books everyone should read that I‘ve been chipping away at for years. I‘ve now read 85 of them, and these 3 are all among the 15 I haven‘t.

I‘m going to read Bridget Jones next month for #Pemberlittens, though!

Simpatico da leggere, è qualcosa di leggero dopo aver letto un libro pesante insomma, ma nulla di più, in questo caso ho preferito di più il film, anche se ancora non capisco la sua ossessione nel vedersi obesa pesando “57 kg”. Non lo capirò mai.

It was fun to revisit this, 2 decades after my first read of it, especially as I was in the mood for humour. My feminist book club chose it for tomorrow‘s discussion & I wasn‘t sure I‘d get my hands on a copy, but my neighbour checked with her adult daughter & it was delivered to my mailbox on the same day that I asked about it. Looking forward to our zoom meeting.

Megabooks I read that in 1998, I think! Gosh! Throwback! 2y
AppuNthebooks How fun! How was it reading it again? I‘ve revisited this movie though not the book for an easy, comfort watch. 2y
Lindy @AppuNthebooks It was so long since I‘d read it that I had totally forgotten what happened with Bridget‘s mother‘s boyfriend. Definitely a comfort read. 2y

Lindy @Megabooks I remember reading this as part of a chick lit readers advisory project I was doing for work. Those were the halcyon days of professional development in my library system. I facilitated a lot of RA workshops. 2y
Cathythoughts Those movies were so good ❤️👍🏻 2y
Lindy @Cathythoughts I haven‘t seen the movie. I‘m trying to imagine how Bridget‘s hilarious tallies at the start of each diary entry would be done, or if they just eliminated the diary aspect. 2y

“Bugger. Where am I going to find a 23-year-old who will come to dinner with Smug Marrieds on a Saturday night instead of taking contaminated Ecstasy tablets?”
Wait, what? Was Emily St John Mandel reading Helen Fielding when she wrote The Glass Hotel? Or was tainted Ecstasy just that common?

Megabooks It was common. There were a couple of organizations that were dedicated to testing tablets at raves. 2y

I am not going to spend another evening being danced about in front of Mark Darcy like a spoonful of puréed turnip in front of a baby. I am going to have to leave the country or something.

I nearly sent this to a charity shop a few years ago (I think it actually came from one originally) until my husband pointed out that it is signed, so I kept it!

OriginalCyn620 This was my choice too! 2y

#DearDiary I wonder what Bridget‘s quarantine journal would say? I have been keeping a journal during this time of uncertainty and I guarantee Bridget‘s would be funnier than mine has been so far. Has anyone else been trying to capture this time in a journal? #MagnificientMarch

OriginalCyn620 Again, we‘ve chosen the same book! I haven‘t been journaling but that‘s a great idea. 2y
MallenNC @OriginalCyn620 Let me know what we‘re choosing tomorrow! 😀I read somewhere that historians recommended people keep journals because this is obviously an historic time. It‘s helped me to put some thoughts down every day. 2y
Well-ReadNeck Yes! Journaling for same reason. Things change so much every day. 2y

Mehso-so

Started off not liking this book very much. It seemed shallow and ridiculous the way the main character was acting/thinking about. That said towards the middle of the book started to find the hilarity and gained interest in the book. Not my usual type of read and doubt I will be reading the sequel but not too bad

Midnight... called Tom, who took me to a party a friend of his from art school was having at the Saatchi Gallery to stop me obsessing...

...“Excuse me, I‘m in a hurry.” I burst into the cubicle and was just about to get on with it when I realized the toilet was actually a molding of the inside of a toilet, #vacuum-packed in plastic. Then Daniel put his head round the door. “Bridge, don‘t wee on the Installation, will you?” he said
