Bridget Jones’s Baby The Diaries by Helen Fielding, Published by Jonathan Cape.
Opening a Bridget Jones novel is like catching up with old friends. Hearing their voices, being reminded of all the things that you love about them and just maybe that one thing that could send you a little crazy. Helen Fielding has absolutely delivered again.
I don’t think I am spoiling the story for anyone to say that Bridget is still single and falls pregnant. What ensues is pregnancy Bridget style and the puzzle of who’s the father?
Whilst engrossed within the pages I have shrieked, laughed cringed and more. Even if you have seen the movie the book has that extra charm. If you haven’t yet read any of the Bridget Jones series then I urge you to start at the beginning (it’s a very good place to start!), put up a DO NOT DISTURB sign and have the time of your life!
Published by Penguin Life, part of Penguin Random House, this A5 size chunky hardback book has a beautifully decorated cover which really catches your eye on the shelf. I managed to resist it a couple of times but finally succumbed as it’s loveliness kept calling out to me.
Once home and curled up under my blanket with a hot chocolate, I soon discovered that I am a natural at Hygge – I had already assumed the position! But seriously, this book describes in a variety of diagrams, statistics and becoming photographs what Hygge is, why the Danes are more often than not at the top of the Happiness polls and gives us numerous reasons why and ways how, we can all get on board with something that can only make us feel more relaxed and do us good.
The book itself feels substantial to hold and looks lovely on a coffee table. It is something you can flick through over and over again to remind you of fun ideas to do with friends or family and even contains traditional Danish recipes. I will be buying this book again as a gift and I am sold on Hygge. Meik you can definitely count me in!

Do you have a Hyggekrog? Mine is my favourite corner with the Union Jack chair as seen in The Snug’s logo. I love to curl up there and read. What’s yours? Do share.
