Book Review: Bridget Jones's Diary

Bridget Jones's Diary (Bridget Jones, #1)Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked this, book, but having been a huge fan of the movie I was slightly disappointed in some areas, but impressed in others. I like Bridget, but at times her whining and incompetence were irritating. I like Daniel much more in this one. Mark, of course... Well, I liked the film version because of Colin Firth (I mean come ON!) And Bridget's mom was developed so much better in the book! It was an all around pleasing read, light-hearted and silly.

Book Review: The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is really a 4.5, but either way, it was an exciting read! I've always loved Greek mythology, and it is woven into every aspect if this story! I know I was late jumping on the bandwagon, but I'm so glad I did. I'm definitely a fan of the demigods and their adventures.

Percy is a great and magical hero; a truly exciting coming-of-age story!

Book Review: Can You Keep A Secret?

Can You Keep a Secret?Can You Keep a Secret? by Sophie Kinsella
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love Sophie Kinsella! Her heroines are relatable without being overly incompetent and irritating. I wasn't the biggest fan of Jack, but Emma felt like my BFF. Loved it! Definitely going to re-read!
