Hmm, I’m like a kitten with a ping pong ball at the moment, my brain so going ‘Lip gloss! Shoes! Books! Cookies! thunder storm! Lip gloss! Back to books!’ so I hope you’ll indulge me while I pimp out a book I’m excited about.
Now, I don’t know about you but I’m a twenty-something that likes kissing boys (you’ll notice I didn’t say girl. This part is relevant*) and as such, I was a huge fan of Sex and the City. Carrie writes books, I wanted to write books! Carrie lives in New York, I wanted to live in New York! Carrie likes shoes, I like shoes! Carrie likes a drink, I – OK, you get the picture. Anyway, after being horribly disappointed with the first movie (the message seemed to shift from ‘hold out for what you want’ to ‘settle! settle now or die alone!’) but I won’t lie, I’m excited to see the new movie** and in anticipation, I’m even more excited to read The Carrie Diaries.
The book gives us an insight into Carrie’s life as a senior in high school in the eighties and I’m promised there are vintage go-go boots in the very first chapter. Excitation, non? Once you’ve read it, I’d love to get your opinions. I have been plugging away at the million things I have to finish before I let myself start it but as soon as I do, I’ll update you with my take.
Because obvies, my opinion matters to the likes of Candace Bushnell. Cough.
