Right away I was drawn to this book. I always enjoyed watching the Bridget Jones movies and I’m sure I would have enjoyed the books too. The description, upon first reading it, interested me so much more when it promised a deeper storyline. Let me tell you though, it does get deeper and even darker. Queenie was really going through it for a while there and unable to pull herself back up to the surface of that dark. To know you are self-destructing but being unable to make yourself stop is such a terrible feeling and this book really does a good job of putting it into prospective. Feeling alone and feeling like you don’t matter to anyone is so mentally crushing. Mental health is so important.
