“Push yourself. Don't Settle. Just live well. Just LIVE.”

Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy  - Helen Fielding

I know, it's been such a long time since I posted something here and I really do miss it, it's that I don't actually have time anymore even though I hate neglecting my books.


So, I did manage to finish Mad About the Boy, even though there's been a couple of very busy months and as expected I was disappointed. Definitely not the best one in the series.

I didn't like Bridget this way, maybe it was appealing to some of you, maybe you even thought she was funny. For me she just seemed like this irresponsible woman who loves her kids very much but doesn't know how to be a parent. It was like she couldn't function properly without a man in her life which is actually sad


I was disappointed by the fact that Fielding killed off Mark but I got over it really quickly, I thought she had something better coming, but boy I was wrong. I didn't laugh nearly as much as I laughed reading the first two books and certain things seemed to be repeating ad infinitum. 


Would I recommend it? Nope. Not the best, not the worse. Just meh.
