New ‘Bridget Jones’ Book On the Way

After two Bridget Jones novels and two movies, you might have thought Bridget’s story was over. But author Helen Fielding isn’t done writing it yet.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Fielding is working on a third installment to the bestselling Bridget Jones’s Diary series. To keep up with the times, Fielding says the chapters will start off with Bridget’s tweets, rather than her diary entries. A release date has not yet been set.

Speaking of third installments, a third Bridget Jones movie is also in the works, but the third book will not follow the storyline of the third movie. Apparently, there’s also talk about a Bridget Jones musical!

Sounds like a whole lot of Bridget to me! I never read the books, but I saw the first movie and didn’t enjoy it very much. What do you guys think? Are you excited for the new book? Will you read it?

  1. hugely excited, have been waiting for this for ten years! Thanks for the wonderful news, you really made my morning. BTW, the movies suck, but you should really read the books. Dry, delicious british humour. 🙂

  2. If Helen Fielding decides to publish a revision of the London Telephone Directory, I will most likely read it – and expect it to be brilliant. Did not enjoy the Bridget Jones movies nearly as much as I thought I would, particularly in light of the delicious irony of having Colin Firth play Mark Darcy. But I thought both books were pure genius. Riotously funny and sharply witty, with great characters. And all throughout laced with some of the most astute observations of human nature, relationships and the creative ways we find to make life work when it hasn’t turned out as we hoped. You should definitely read the first two books. Then you should read Fielding’s other novels – “Cause Celeb” and “Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination”.
