The Carrie Diaries | Candace Bushnell
24 posts | 52 read | 14 to read
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.

While I loved the show Sex and the City, I did not enjoy the book it was based on. But I did enjoy the YA books the author wrote about young Carrie, and the show that was based on those books.

Eggs Sounds so good❣️❣️ 1y
KathyWheeler I also loved the show and could not figure out how they got that show from that terrible book, which is why I haven‘t read this one. Maybe I‘ll try it. (edited) 1y
Tera66 @KathyWheeler This one is the second book, I think there were only two. I think the show based on these books is still on Netflix, it's really cute. 1y
KathyWheeler @Tera66 I‘ll check it out. 1y

So stoked there‘s a rock‘n‘roll symbol for the “pick” choice in this scenario because I really liked this book. This is the third book in my 2021 reading adventure and at first I was doubting my choice in books. Then, I gathered my much needed confidence that I am growing this and thought to the hell with it. I love the ‘Sex and the City‘ TV series- I thought to give this series a chance and enjoyed it. Totally recommend. And cheers to more heart.

3. Yes! 🥚
4. Piper - Not sure why, just love this name! 🤷🏻‍♀️
5. Will do! ❤️

Happy Long Weekend Littens!!

Getting back into my night routine of reading before bed. I have been having better sleeps because of it!

Although a teen book, I‘m finding it to be a fun little read. Carrie still has her wits about her 🌃

So I tried the ebook version (first ebook) and can‘t do it! I so prefer the weight of a real book: just my preference.

Trying to get a hold of a hard copy but it‘s proven to be difficult! My library said it was “in” but they lost the copy 🤷🏻‍♀️Haven‘t read much these past few days....

Literary_Siren You can get it cheap on ThriftBooks.com or maybe halfpricebooks.com 4y
darklydreaming @Literary_Siren thanks!! I didn‘t know about these. The library says they have one coming in too! But this site is great for future reads 😊 4y
Literary_Siren You‘re welcome! 4y

Suet624 Also check out Better World Books. They have a great social mission. 4y
darklydreaming @Suet624 this looks wonderful! Thank you for sharing 😊 4y
Suet624 Oh good. And if you order from them you‘ll get the most amazing letter from your books as they‘re coming your way. Seriously. I love them 4y
darklydreaming @Suet624 neat! I will definitely try this one out 👍 4y

The bargain section in Chapters had the sequel to The Carrie Diaries for $5. They didn‘t have the first so got the ebook version (my first ebook ever!)

Decided to read something light after the thriller I just finished!

#bargainbooks #saturday

Boooooks I enjoyed the Carrie diaries I don‘t know if that‘s because I hadn‘t yet watched any of sex and the city to compare it to but they are fun summery reads, hope you enjoy them as well!! 4y
darklydreaming @Boooooks I am a big fan of SATC but I‘ve heard good things about these too! Glad to hear you enjoyed them 😊 4y
Boooooks I did end up watch SATC after reading these but I see them as completely separate, just thinking about it‘s making want to do a rewatch if only for Samantha‘s one liners 😂 4y
darklydreaming @Boooooks haha right!? I just started rewatching it again. So good!! 4y

I read The Carrie Diaries and it is a really fun book. No I will finish Beckhams autobiography and then continue with Summer and the City.

Future reader. Little love is pretending to read to me.

literarymermaid That's my favorite! One of my favorite games at that age was pretending to put mommy in bed. 6y

maximoffs @LaurenReads I'm trying to get to my normal DNF mark and I don't even know if that'll happen 6y

sherrynuts Agreed! I don't think I finished it. 6y
Megabooks Candace Bushnell is very overrated IMO! 6y
LauraLeah I didn't really care for this one or Sex in the City book. However I loved the tv show-they seem to translate better in that medium. 6y
maximoffs @ElizabethAndino Good choice! @TheNextBook I'm so annoyed 🙄 @mattgodfrey it's vapid and not even remotely interesting @thegirlwiththelibrarybag don't even get it. @sherrynuts couldn't even get to my normal DNF mark @Ebooksandcooks this was my first foray and I loved the show but this was just 🙄🙄 6y
