It’s October! Time to snuggle up with these great reads.
Bridget Jones returns! Oddly, she’s still referring to men as boys and she must be in her forties now. Lets see what this brings us. Can’t wait to read!
Bridget Jones—one of the most beloved characters in modern literature (v.g.)—is back! In Helen Fielding’s wildly funny, hotly anticipated new novel, Bridget faces a few rather pressing questions:
Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating?
Is it normal to get fewer followers the more you tweet?
Is sleeping with someone after two dates and six weeks of texting the same as getting married after two meetings and six months of letter writing in Jane Austen’s day?
Pondering these and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of loss, single motherhood, tweeting, texting, technology, and rediscovering her sexuality in—Warning! Bad, outdated phrase approaching!—middle age.
