Extra, extra read all about it!!!!!!!!!!!! The iconic and fabulous Carrie Bradshaw we all know and love is coming back to a TV near you! The CW network recently announced that they will be turning Sex in the City author Candice Bushnell’s novel “The Carrie Diaries“, the first installment in the new series, into a show on the CW!
The show will chronicle the life of a teenage Carrie growing up in a small town. She will experience first loves, heartbreak, teenage drama and of course first introductions to fashion and her beloved gal pals Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte. There has been a lot of recent press regarding this news and rumors of who might be slated to star as Carrie. Most recently, I heard Gossip Girl’s Blake Livley is currently in talks to take on the iconic character Hmmm…….
Who do you think would make the best teenage Carrie Bradshaw?
If you haven’t guessed already, I am addicted to “Sex in the City” ! I have loved the show since it aired on HBO and still do and probably always will. I’ve probably seen every episode three times! 🙂 I don’t know why, but I really relate to the characters and the story lines. It’s a great escape from daily life. It epitomizes the fun and glamour of being a woman, friendships, love, amazing, fun and fabulous life experiences along with the heart-breaking, tragic and emotionally draining experiences; all of which we can relate to in one way or another.
So, when I heard Bushnell was writing prequel novels to the series, I was very excited! I already couldn’t get enough of the show and this was a chance to get even more but in a different way. I loved seeing a teenage Carrie grow up in the 80’s and how she came into her own and her life and events leading up to the Sex in the City that we all know; I couldn’t put the book down! I am really looking forward to seeing how this all develops and saying I can’t wait until the show premieres is a HUGE understatement! 😉
Are you guys excited about this show?
P.S.- this was just the first book– “Summer in the City”, the second Carrie Diaries novel, was even better! Have you read this book too? How cool would it be if this is eventually turned into a series or movie as well?! 😉
UNTIL NEXT TIME!!!
