Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy
I'm not going to lie, this book was...... pretty meh compared to the first two. Granted it was written like a decade later and Bridget is now in her *gasp* FIFTIES!!! Not only is Bridget older, "wiser," and more stable; she's changed up her diary format (boo!). Broken into sections that go back in forth in time, Mad About The Boy picks up after Mark Darcy her husband has been dead for five years and Bridget has been on her own rearing their kids. Due to pressure from her friends she decides that it is now time to start dating again. She quickly discovers that a widow in her fifties with two young children is not the most sought after, and she thought her thirties were rough! She has to navigate texting (how do you interpret what they mean?), twitter, and beauty products. Bridget is witty as ever and somehow readers know everything will be alright. Honestly though.... still pissed they killed off Darcy. Oh well, he was too good for her anyways!
