The Carrie Diaries


People.com is reporting that The Carrie Diaries, by SATC author Candace Bushnell will be released next April. This prequel to Sex and the City will explore Carrie's life in high school and explore how she became a writer. People.com calls it a "teen prequel". While I think the idea of a prequel is a good one- would love to learn more about Carrie before her move to NYC!- the "teen" idea makes me a bit skeptical. The whole appeal of SATC is the frankness and adult humor about sex and relationships. I hope the prequel isn't too teeny-bopper... What do you think?

  1. I heard about this over the summer. Yes, yes, yes! I can't wait to read it. Though I can see where your skepticism stems from - the storyline of Sex and the City is definitely not teeny-bopper fodder. Hopefully Bushnell goes more the way of the book "Sloppy Firsts" or "Gossip Girl" than, say, "The Princess Diaries." :)

  2. I'm really excited about this! I think we forget she is an author and just associate Candace with the show and now the movies. Hopefully she won't let us down!

  7. Never heard of it~ super excited now though! That's awesome. And the Teen part doesn't worry me, I'm going to the Twilight Midnight showing for Gosh sake and I'm way too old to be doing that! :) I'll probably enjoy it!

  12. I'm definitely preordering a copy for myself! I trust Bushnell, she would never go down the teeny-bopper route. Just so long as we get some excellent fashion descriptions, I'll be satisfied.
