The Carrie Diaries

The Carrie Diaries - Candace Bushnell I didn't think I'd like this book, because honestly, [b:Sex and the City|7455|Sex and the City|Candace Bushnell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1344270731s/7455.jpg|3297002] sucked. Sorry, it just did. As much as I love the show, I didn't like it. It was so confusing! To my surprise, this book was better. A lot.

I started out by feeling I'd read this book before. I've only seen one or two episodes of the show (didn't like it), but it still felt very familiar to me. The plot in this novel was very predictable, but I guess that's okay, because these kinds of books, they just aren't that original in their storylines.

As far as the characters goes, ouch, they were so very immature! I can't believe they were meant to be 18 years old. It's been a few years since I was 18, but still... You don't tell your friends to break up with your boyfriend for you. You do it yourself! It really annoyed me! I couldn't really relate to them, they felt too childish.

I still enjoyed this book though. I liked that Carrie "found her voice." Sometimes, I could almost hear adult-tvshow-Carrie read the lines. It was really well-written. I know I shouldn't be comparing this to the SATC-show, but I can't seperate them, I'm sorry.

Also, the last line really did it for me, and I know that I'll be reading the next book in this series really soon!
