#BookReview Bridget Jones's Baby The Diaries by Helen Fielding


8.45 P.M. Realise there have been so many times in my life when have fantasised about going to a scan with Mark or Daniel: just not both at the same time.

Before motherhood, before marriage, Bridget, with biological clock ticking very, very loudly, finds herself unexpectedly pregnant at the eleventh hour: a joyful pregnancy which is dominated, however, by a crucial but terribly awkward question – who is the father? Mark Darcy: honourable, decent, notable human rights lawyer? Or Daniel Cleaver: charming, witty, notable fuckwit?

9.45 P.M. It’s like they’re two halves of the perfect man, who’ll spend the rest of their lives each wanting to outdo the other one. And now it’s all enacting itself in my stomach.

In this gloriously funny, touching story of baby-deadline panic, maternal bliss, and social, professional, technological, culinary and childbirth chaos, Bridget Jones – global phenomenon and the world’s favourite Singleton – is back with a bump


I am a huge Bridget Jones fan!

I have read every Bridget Jones book and watched every film. 
Helen Fielding has created a character that is relatable, funny and hugely popular. 

Like many readers I enjoyed the books more than I did the film. That is not to belittle the hugely popular films or the brilliant actors; I just enjoyed the books more. When I read Mad About the Boy, I cried and laughed and felt a sense of closure for Bridget and her life. It was a gorgeous read and I loved every page. 
I remember hearing the news that there would be another Bridget Jones film and was intrigued to see how the story would be told. In case you haven’t read the book, I really can’t say much, but for those of you have, you will understand why I was intrigued. 

#BookReview : The Wonder by Emma Donoghue @picadorbooks


the wonder by emma donoghue book review

In the latest masterpiece by Emma Donoghue, bestselling author of Room, an English nurse brought to a small Irish village to observe what appears to be a miracle-a girl said to have survived without food for months-soon finds herself fighting to save the child's life.

Tourists flock to the cabin of eleven-year-old Anna O'Donnell, who believes herself to be living off manna from heaven, and a journalist is sent to cover the sensation. Lib Wright, a veteran of Florence Nightingale's Crimean campaign, is hired to keep watch over the girl.

Written with all the propulsive tension that made Room a huge bestseller, THE WONDER works beautifully on many levels--a tale of two strangers who transform each other's lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil.
