"I'm not going to have sex with some guy just to impress you," I said.
"Whoa," Roy said.  "She really is a bitch."
"Not a bitch," I said."  Just a woman who knows her own mind."




from The Carrie Diaries (The Carrie Diaries #1) by Candace Bushnell

    1. There is no need to watch SATC, the book is set in high school before the TV show.

  6. Wow, I have this book! It was a fun prequel to the Sex & the City series...I also saw the TV show, but I think it was only on for one season.

    Thanks for sharing...and here's mine: “COP TOWN”

    1. I only watch the first episode, but it did make it to a season two. Samantha Jones was introduce in the second season.

  7. I could never get into SATC, but the idea of the prequel sounds fun. I'd like to see that done with a few shows I have watched. You can find mine here... http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewsFlippedForMur

    1. I like SATC (the show), but did not like the book. However, I did like The Carrie Diaries (the book), but not the show.

  8. This has been on my TBR. It sounds really fun. I wasn't a huge fan of Sex in the City but I thought the Carrie Diaries show sounded cute and I like the sound of the teaser. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I never watched the show. I wonder if the book stands alone. I'm spotlighting Sweep in Peace by Ilona Andrews this week. Happy reading!

    1. You don't have to be fan of the show to read the book. It is not stand alone, it's a two book series. The second book is Summer and the City.

  10. Good for her!!! Never watched the show. I wonder if the book is close to it or goes off in a different direction.
