WHAT'S COMING UP? BRIDGET JONES: MAD ABOUT THE BOY

BRIDGET JONES
Mad About The Boy
BY HELEN FIELDING
ABOUT THE BOOK:
What do you do when your girlfriend’s sixtieth birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend’s thirtieth?

Is it better to die of Botox or die of loneliness because you’re so wrinkly?

Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating?

Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice?

Is it normal to be too vain to put on your reading glasses when checking your toy boy for head lice?

Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet or is it his assistant?

Is it normal to get fewer followers the more you tweet?

Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood?

If you put lip plumper on your hands do you get plump hands?

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 Bad, outdated phrase approaching!—middle age.

In a triumphant return after fourteen years of silence, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is timely, tender, touching, page-turning, witty, wise, outrageous, and bloody hilarious.

Oh my gosh I cannot WAIT till this book comes out!!! I loved the first two Bridget Jones books as well as the movies and have had this new book on my wish list since the book was announced. I did hear a disappointing spoiler yesterday about the book but I won't write it here in case someone else didn't :). Can't wait!!!!

Oh, I agree about not wanting a spoiler so thanks for not sharing it, Colleen. I bet with all the press it will get it might slip out so we must all be careful. Hope you all get to read it as I await my own copy, too.
