Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme at Breaking the Spine. It's where book bloggers share the upcoming releases they are eagerly anticipating. My selection this week is:
by Candace Bushnell
Release Date: 26 April 2011
Summer is a magical time in New York City and Carrie is in love with all of the crazy characters in her neighbourhood, the vintage-clothing boutiques, the wild parties, and the glamourous man who has swept her off her feet. Best of all, she's finally in a real writing class, taking her first steps toward fulfilling her dream.
This sequel to The Carrie Diaries brings surprising revelations as Carrie learns to navigate her way around the Big Apple, going from being a country "sparrow" as Samantha Jones dubs her to the person she always wanted to be. But as it becomes increasingly difficult to reconcile her past with her future, Carrie realizes that making it in New York is much more complicated than she ever imagined.
With her signature wit and sparkling humour, Candace Bushnell reveals the irresistible story of how Carrie met Samantha and Miranda, and what turned a small-town girl into one of New York City's most unforgettable icons, Carrie Bradshaw.
I was such a big fan of Sex and the City when it was on television, having already read the book, and when The Carrie Diaries came out of course I had to read it. I don't read much YA, but I did enjoy the book and I'm looking forward to the sequel, especially now that we'll get to see how the girls became friends!
What are you waiting on?
