Waiting on Wednesday (28)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

Here's what I'm waiting on this week:


Mad About the Boy (Bridget Jones #3)
  
Bridget Jones is back!

Great comic writers are as rare as hen's teeth. And Helen is one of a very select band who have created a character of whom the very thought makes you smile. Bridget Jones' Diary, charting the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s was a huge international bestseller, published in 40 countries and selling over 15 million copies worldwide. Its sequel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, published soon after was also a major international bestseller. Both were made into films starring Renée Zellweger, Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.

Set in the present, the new novel will explore a different phase in Bridget's life with an entirely new scenario. As Helen Fielding has said: "If people laugh as much reading it as I am while writing it then we'll all be very happy."

Publication Date: October 15, 2013
Publisher: Knopf Canada

What are you waiting on? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I haven't read any of these OR watched the movies. I probably should though since so many people seem to like them. Comic fiction is a genre I haven't really explored, but I do like to read something more light and fun in between some of the more dark, disturbing, and emotionally draining books that I'm drawn to so I think maybe I should consider something like this. Here is my WoW

  2. I haven't of it, but it does sound interesting! I'll be sure to add it to my TBR pile. :)
