An article on chick lit books is empty without writing about the Bridget Jones series. It is a hilarious account of Bridget Jones life and her attempt to change her physique in the first book. It’s something that every woman can relate to.

Meet with Bridget Jones

A. lose 7 lbs B. quit smoking c. develop Inner Poise "123 pounds. (how can it be feasible to put about 4 lbs at the middle of the evening? Could flesh have solidified thicker and becoming warmer? Repulsive, dreadful notion), alcohol units 4 (excellent), smokes 21 (bad but will provide up completely tomorrow), amount of lottery numbers two (much better, but useless)..." Bridget Jones' Diary is your devastatingly self indulgent, laugh-out-loud every day chronicle of Bridget's permanent, doomed pursuit for self -- a year in which she resolves to: reduce the circumference of each thigh by 1.5 inches, visit the gym three times per week not simply to purchase a sandwich, form a functional relationship with a responsible adult, and also learn how to program the VCR. Within the course of this year, Bridget loses a total of 72 pounds but profits a total of 74. She's, however, optimistic. Through all of it, Bridget will have you helpless with laughter, and -- just like millions of readers the world around -- you will end up shouting,"Bridget Jones is me!"
