Synopsis – Meet Carrie Bradshaw before ‘Sex and the City!’
The Carrie Diaries is the coming-of-age story of one of the most iconic characters of our generation.
Before Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw was a small town girl who knew she wanted more. She’s ready for real life to start, but first she must navigate her senior year of high school. Up until now, Carrie and her friends have been inseparable. Then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture, and a friend’s betrayal makes her question everything.
With an unforgettable cast of characters, The Carrie Diaries is the story of how a regular girl learns to think for herself, and evolves into a sharp, insightful writer. Readers will learn about her family background, how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. Through adventures both audacious and poignant, we’ll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where her new life begins.
My Thoughts – Sex and the City is my all time favourite TV show, ive probably seen every episode over 10 times each! However, i have never read any of the books, until now! i probably ahould have started with the actual Sex and the City Book, but i started with The Carrie Diaries. This book starts with Carrie as a teenager, in her final year of school before she goes to collage. I really enjoyed reading this book, i read it in just over a day. It read very easily, with the same sort of plot lines that every book about teenage girls has, boys, parties, friends, fallings out, cliques, etc. Although this is a young adult book, i really enjoyed reading it. even if you have no interest in Sex and the City as a TV programme, this book is definitaly one to read. There is also a sequal out, so that is definitaly going on the wishlist, along with the other sex and the city books
Rating – 4.5/5
