Challenges – Ultimate Teen Book Guide #4/61, Ultimate Teen Book Guide 2nd Edition – #4/782.

Books in the Series

  • Bridget Jones’s Diary
  • The Edge of Reason
  • Mad About the Boy
  • Bridget Jones’s Baby

Synopsis – A dazzlingly urban satire on modern relationships?
An ironic, tragic insight into the demise of the nuclear family?
Or the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something?

Welcome to Bridget’s first diary: mercilessly funny, endlessly touching and utterly addictive.

My Thoughts – It was a very long time ago that I read this book – probably around 10 years or so however it resonates true the older that I get! It is so funny in places and I feel as though most women can identify with Bridget and her life in some way – for example weighing yourself so much that it becomes obsessive or obsessing over men. I read the first and second book in very quick succession however I’m not too sure why I didn’t read the rest – maybe I just forgot to add it to my wish list at the time! I’m definitely going to go back and finish this series though as i really enjoyed the first two books and the films are equally as good in my opinion!

Rating – 4/5
