Bridget Jones: Mad About The Boy

Author:

Helen Fielding

Synopsis:

Bridget Jones is back! What do you do when a girlfriend's 60th birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend's 30th? Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice? Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet or is it his assistant? Is sleeping with someone after 2 dates and 6 weeks of texting the same as getting married after 2 meetings and 6 months of letter writing in Jane Austen's day? Pondering these, and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of single-motherhood, texting and rediscovering her sexuality in what SOME people rudely call "middle age".

Perception

Author:

Terri Fleming

Synopsis:

Mary Bennet does not dream of marriage. Unlike her younger sister Kitty, whose ambitions are to follow in the footsteps of their elder sisters, Jane and Lizzy, her hopes are simple - a roof over her head, music at the piano, a book in her hand, and the freedom not to marry the first bachelor her mother can snare for her. But Mrs Bennet has other ideas, and is determined to hear wedding bells ring for her girls. While Kitty is presented with tempting choices and left trying to resist old habits, Mary discovers that things are not always what they seem, and that happiness has a price. By the time she realises her perceptions might be false, could she have missed her chance at a future she'd never imagined?
