Yahoo, have you heard? Bridget Jones is back! The wonderful Helen Fielding has just confirmed November (this year) as the world publication date of the long-awaited third part of the loveable Bridget Jones and all her mischief. I am over the moon! This morning, my friend, Sofia sent me a message and her opening line was: goodness me, sit down before reading this because our year just got a whole lot groovier! She is right:)
Helen says that the third book will be set in present-day London and will follow Bridget in a new stage in her life. I read somewhere that she is planning on including Bridget's tweets in the beginning of each chapter together with the amount of shags:) There is also a talk of a baby but Helen is keeping everything a secret. The only thing she said was that it will be hilarious. I can not wait!
Fun fact: did you know that Bridget Jones's Diary started off as a weekly column in British newspaper The Independent back in 1995? Helene used to chat weekly with her readers about the life of a 30-something singleton in London in the 1990s. Ha!
Crikey, it's been 13 years in waiting and I for one am super excited to get my hands on the book! How about you? Have you read the previous two?
P.S: Also, Bridget Jones 3 - the film is scheduled for a release early 2014. Yay!
P.P.S: What are your date night moves?
