Helen Fielding - Bridget Jones's Diary

This book describes exactly how women's life can be. Bridget is an ordinary woman who has the same problems as other normal women; problems with men, problems with her job, parents who want to divorce... who doesn't know these problems?

Bridget Jones's Diary is a dazzling urban satire of modern human relations, an ironic tragic insight demise of the nuclear family, the confused ramblings of a pissed thirty-something...

A great book you should definately read!

Erich Segal - Love Story

The classic novel that spawned the hit 1970 film tells the story of rich Harvard jock Oliver Barrett IV and working-class Radcliffe student Jenny Cavilleri--how they are opposite in every way, how they share a love that defies everything, and how a love lingers in the heart now and forever. Now repackaged with an updated look for the 21st century.

Steve Martin - Shopgirl

Mirabelle works as a shop assistant in the glove department at Neiman's, L.A.'s finest store. She has two men in her life: Jeremy, a man who stencils amplifiers for a living; and Mr Roy Porter, a rich, older man who believes he can apply logic to relationships and is serially confused...

Shopgirl is a very beautifully written character study, a very true and often funny - though at times also sad - story about the ups and downs of life.

Not necessarily a usual lovestory, but definately worth reading!
