Inferno: (Robert Langdon Book 4) by Dan Brown
I've read all of the Robert Langdon series and have to admit that they get more far-fetched each time. This one is no exception and from the start you're taken on a whirlwind adventure through various European cities. I enjoy that fact that Dan Brown references real places and works of art. I feel like it adds more interest to the story and encourages you to look these things up to see them for yourself. The plot is ludicrously unbelievable, but enjoyable nonetheless.
The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike) by Robert Galbraith
I knew the real identity of the author before I purchased this book but read it with an open mind, not looking to compare it to her previous work. I really enjoyed the plot and the characterisation. It was complex enough so that it wasn't obvious 'whodunnit', but not too detailed that you become lost along the way. I'll definately look forward to the second installment.
Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy by Helen Fielding

I enjoyed reading the first two installments of Bridget Jones's Diary back when they were originally released, so thought I'd give this a try. It was enjoyable and easy to read but I couldn't help but find the character a bit annoying. It was often difficult to remember that this story is now being told in the voice of a 50-something year old woman, as Bridget seems just as clueless as in her younger years. The characters of her children, and Bridget's interactions with them, seemed like a bit of an afterthought so it was hard to imagine her as a mother, making this new scenerio seem a bit two-dimensional.
