Penguin Putnam
With another devastatingly hilarious, ridiculous, unnervingly accurate take on modern womanhood, Bridget Jones is back. (v.g.)

Monday 27 January

"7:15 a.m. Hurrah! The wilderness years are over. For four weeks and five days now have been in functional relationship with adult male, thereby proving am not love pariah as recently feared."

Wednesday 5 March

"7:08 p.m. Am assured, receptive, responsive woman of substance. My sense of self comes not from other people but . . .from . . .myself? That can't be right."

Lurching from the cappuccino bars of Notting Hill to the blissed-out shores of Thailand, everyone's favorite Singleton Bridget Jones begins her search for The Truth in spite of pathetically unevolved men, insane dating theories, and Smug Married advice. She experiences a zeitgeist-esque Spiritual Epiphany somewhere between the pages of How to Find the Love You Want Without Seeking It (can self-help books really help self?), protective custody, and a lightly chilled Chardonnay.

Baker & Taylor
Bridget's new relationship with Mark Darcy should have improved her self-confidence, but the difficult adjustments of sharing an apartment and Rebecca's eagerness to cause trouble are making Bridget more uncertain than ever.

& Taylor

The sequel to Bridget Jones' Diary continues to follow single woman Bridget on her quest for love, sex, and truth from the cappuccino bars of London to the beaches of Thailand. Reprint.

I realize that this book was written nearly 15 years ago, and that Fielding was one of the pioneers of chick lit. Even so, I find the constant obsessing on diet, size, dating tactics and men very depressing and wish that Bridget would occasionally give serious thought to her career and her development as an individual. But then Bridget just wouldn't be Bridget, would she?

Not as good as the first, but still great.

Oh Bridget.... She's such a great character. Not as good as her first series of adventures/mishaps, but always entertaining.
