"Waiting On" Wednesday 59

The Carrie Diaries by Candance Bushnell

Harper Collins:

Before Carrie Bradshaw hit the big time in the City, she was a regular girl growing up in the suburbs of Connecticut. How did she turn into one of the most-read social observers of our generation?

The Carrie Diaries opens up in Carrie’s senior year of high school. She and her best friends—Walt, Lali, Maggie, and the Mouse—are inseparable, amid the sea of Jens, Jocks and Jets. And then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture. Sebastian is a bad boy—older, intriguing, and unpredictable. Carrie falls into the relationship that she was always supposed to have in high school—until a friend’s betrayal makes her question everything. With her high school days coming to a close, Carrie will realize it’s finally time to go after everything she ever wanted.

Rabid fans of Sex and the City will love seeing Carrie Bradshaw evolve from a regular girl into a sharp, insightful writer. They’ll learn about her family background—how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. We’ll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where the next Carrie Diaries book will take place.

Released April 27th 2010

I remember hearing about this awhile back and just recently the cover was all over the internet and magazines. Loved the tv show Sex and the City (still need to read the book-i do have it!) and I always liked to pretend that Sarah Jessica Parker's show from her teen years, Square Pegs was a younger version of Carrie Bradshaw lol! Anyways this sounds great and it sounds like it's the beginning of a series! I really hope it's written in a journal format like the title implies.

What can't you wait for to be released?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!


  1. I didn't even know this book existed. OMG I am sooo getting this one. I was obsessed with Sex and the City when I was a teenager!! this is crazy awesome

  2. i wonder if it will include the TV storyline b/c doesn't Carrie get pregnant, either in high school or college? with that waiter guy but she ends up getting the abortion?

  3. Interesting, but I'm not sure it's for me since I've never seen Sex in the City.

  4. Hee, that book comes out on my birthday! :)

  5. I never did watch (or read) Sex in the City but I did read Lipstick Jungle by this author and I really liked those characters.
