Bridget Jones's Diary - Helen Fielding
I've had this book on my shelf for a while now, when all of a sudden I feel an urge to drop the books I'm currently reading and just go with Bridget Jones's Diary. Having watched the movie about a gazillion times prior to reading the book (yes, a guilty pleasure I'm not ashamed of), I was quite prepared what to expect, and was a bit skeptical as to whether I'll like it that much now that I'm spoiled. But girl, did I like that book! Although in a format of a very untypical diary, the book gives a very, very realistic idea of how women feel about themselves, their relationships with friends/family/men and their lives in general. Not sure if this matches what I categorize as chick-lit in my head, but who cares anyway? I really, really liked that book and definitely recommend it. It's a very quick read, it's totally relatable and very funny. Gotta go now, the movie is waiting.
