The Carrie Diaries

Many of you may think you've got me pegged—Twilight junkie. Well, your assessment is correct. However, way before Stephenie Meyer introduced me to the world of sexy, brooding Vampires and hot-tastic, overgrown Werewolves, I was obsessed with another fictional character. (I’ll take a moment to let that sink in. I know it’s hard to believe, right?).

It’s true, though. Years before Edward, Bella, and Jacob—sigh—another character held me captive, and her name was (drum roll please)… Carrie Bradshaw.

Yeah, so, she might not have any special or supernatural powers to speak of (unless you consider being able to run around the streets of New York in those fabulous, yet painful, designer stilettos. Which, now that I think of it, has to be a super power. I mean, who can do that? I know I can’t make it two feet in stilettos without cowering in pain), but she does have lots and lots of shoes.

And, what girl doesn’t love shoes? … Exactly, there aren’t any.

Needless to say, when I found this article the other day, I almost jumped out of my chair screaming (which, would have been embarrassing, since I was at work).

Ever wonder about Carrie Bradshaw's teen years?


Well, publishers think you have. There's a new book coming called "The Carrie Diaries," which details Ms. Bradshaw's time in high school.
Written by Candace Bushnell, whose columns inspired "Sex and the City," the book will dish on the famous character's first relationships, as well as show how she began her storied writing career. The cover art references a seminal incident between a young Carrie and her mother.
"The Carrie Diaries" won't be published until April 27, 2010, but at least that beats out the "Sex and the City 2" movie. The sequel to the original flick won't hit theaters until next May 28th.
So, even though I have to wait six more (long) months until the second, Sex and the City, movie hits the big screen, and seven more (very, very long) months until, Eclipse, is released, it does seem I have something to look forward to.

The Carrie Diaries—only five months away. YAY!!!

Now, I must go brush up on the adventures of Ms. Bradshaw and her fabulous friends.

(Cue me breaking out the Sex and the City series box set—21 discs of fabulousness!)

I can’t wait!

“As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda, buckle up and just keep going.” --Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City


  1. I'm really excited about The Carrie Diaries, too! I haven't read the book and was late getting into the TV series, but once I was hooked -- I was hooked! Can't wait for the new movie, too! :)

  2. I, too, was late getting into the TV series, but once I found it...that was it! And, I didn't read the orignial book either. But, I can't wait for this one. I have to say I'm really curious to find out about Carrie's teenage years and her family. I don't really remember any of the info. in the show.

    Thanks for commenting. I'm glad someone else is looking forward to all of the Sex and the City fun that's soon to come!
