If you haven't read this one yet, it's a modern day Londoner's diary about trying to lose weight, avoid the pressures of an overbearing mother and find a good man. She succeeds in one of these! She's a bit sloppy, a terrible cook and a bad dresser. But she's also witty, honest and a loyal friend.
I didn't entirely love Bridget but I certainly see the appeal of this book for many and I am just a bit curious about where she goes from this point in her life. If I have to read chick lit, it's going to be about Bridget Jones!
I have decided to count this for Challenge Seven of the Take Another Chance Challenge --
Challenge 7: Break A PrejudiceI was rather unwilling to pick up anything that was chick lit but I now feel like there is probably a subset of the genre that fits with my reading tastes.
We all have reading prejudices--authors we don't like, genres we don't like, or even publishers we don't like. For this challenge, think of a reading prejudice you have and then find a book that is an example of this type of book. Read the book and then write about the reading prejudice you had BEFORE you read the book and how reading the book either changed your prejudice or reinforced it.
