    What a great book list! I have read The Island and of course, I’ve seen Bridget Jones’ Diary countless times. I would love to start reading “Where We Belong” soon as I get a copy. Thank you for the recommending these books.

  4. Slow down? What’s that? I am counting down the days until spring break and slowing down a bit. Any of these books would be a great read, but I’ll start with the Undomestic Goddess.

  5. I love unwinding with an easy to read, happy book. I’ve actually never read Bridget Jone’s Diary although I have seen the movie.

  6. What a great group of books. I love reading books like Bridget Jones after I have seen the movie so extra details are filled in

    Whaaaaaaat? How could I have never known that Bridget Jones’ Diary was a book before it was a movie? That is so awesome!

  8. This is a great roundup! I’m looking for some good and light summer reads. I think I’ll pick up The Island to dive into this summer.
