The Carrie Diaries - Candace Bushnell

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 Opinion:
I saw this book a while back and knew I had to get my hands on a copy one way or another, and lucky for me I won a contest where I go to chose the book. (Thanks Debbie!) I am a huge Sex and the City fan and was excited to read about Carrie before those New York minutes.
This book didn't disappoint either. It gave me a real sense of Carrie and the character we know and love, right from the beginning.
The best part is the ending, though I won't tell you why.
A definite must read for anyone who likes a good book!


~I won my copy. I was not compensated for my opinion.~


  1. I always loved Carrie and her friends. One afternoon several of my friends and I went to see the 1st movie. At the very end, Carrie and Mr. Big get married. I am sitting there watching the ceremony and I suddenly realize that the minister was my very dear friend, and eighth grade sweetheart, Henry Strozier! "That's Henry!" I screamed. One friend didn't believe me when I said his name and identified him as my sweetheart, so we had to sit through the credits so she could be satisfied that I was indeed telling the truth. Of course, I won.

  2. I am probably one of the few women on the planet who has never watched Sex & The City. Maybe if I started with this book .....

  3. I am a huge SATC fan, too! Own all the seasons on DVD, and have seen the movies, too. I had no idea there was an early Carrie book! Now this is on my wish list.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
