Waiting on Wednesday: Summer and the City



This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell
Pub. Date: August 8, 2011


Goodreads says, "Summer is a magical time in New York City and Carrie is in love with all of the crazy characters in her neighborhood, the vintage-clothing boutiques, the wild parties, and the glamorous 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 humor, 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 really enjoyed The Carrie Diaries, especially that ending if you know what I'm talking about, so I can't wait to see where Bushnell is going to take Carrie.  I also can't wait for her to get to meet both Samantha and Miranda. Plus, how cute is that cover?

  12. When I read The Carrie Diaries, I actually didn't like it. But now that I think about it, I think I liked it more than I realized. Does that make sense?

    ANYWAY.

    When watching the show, I always wanted to know how the four of them met, so I'm super excited to finally know! :)
