If any of you have read any books by Helen Fielding, you already know you love her. Bridget Jones' Diary, The Edge of Reason, and Guide to Life. HI-larious. Sometimes I don't think the movies do the books justice. But I watch them over and over nonetheless.
I just read another great one of hers that I am highly recommending. Not necessarily to the boys...but to any girl who just totally digs a great story and some very well-written "chick-lit."
Olivia Joules and the Overactive Imagination. I loved it! I had no idea where it was going to go, it kept me laughing the whole way through, and it made me want to jump up and start traveling the world fighting crime. As a kid, I adored Nancy Drew. I wanted to be Nancy. The strawberry-blonde hair, the hot boyfriend Ned, and the Mustang convertable. Not to mention and exciting life solving all kinds of mysteries. This is much better literature than my high-school favorite and now I have a new alter ego to follow after!
Well worth your time. Grab a cosmo, kick off your shoes and crack it open.
I borrowed it from my sister-in-law but she might not get it back...
