The Carrie Diaries

If I am being very honest, I started this book about a year and a half ago.  I was a huge Sex and the City fan, and thought the idea of a book about Carrie Bradshaw's high school years was interesting.  I listened to about 15 minutes of the book, got bored, and gave up.  Recently, I saw that they had made this book into a tv series.  Thinking I would want to watch, I decided to give the book another shot.  The second time was a charm.

buy it at amazon
The Carrie Diaries takes a look at Carrie Bradshaw's senior year of high school.  It follows her core group of friends through the ups and downs of growing up and finding themselves.  It also explains how Carrie ends up in New York City and meets Samantha Jones.  If you are a die hard fan of the Sex and the City tv series, you will be notice that some of Carrie's backstory differs here.  If you can't put that aside, you will not enjoy the story here, which would be a shame because it is a fun ride.

Overall, I would give this book 3.5 stars out of 5.  It was an entertaining read, and I really liked the characters here. I wanted to hang out with them myself.  There is also a sequel to this book, which I hope to read soon.

Next up, Mommywood and Unchartered TerriTORI, both by Tori Spelling.  I am a bit obsessed with all things Tori lately, and am really loving these autobiographical books.  I will be back with reviews soon.

Are you a Sex and the City fan?  Have you been watching The Carrie Diaries on tv?
