Last night I got off work and headed to Davis Square for book club! It was so nice see everyone, and even though the book was a bit fluffy for our book club, it was a great jumping off point!
Overall Notes for The Carries Diaries:
1. This book is set in high school, between the movie (SATC2) being geared towards an older generation, and this book coming out, there was a huge age gap. We were hoping that this could have taken place with Carrie in her mid 20's. Perhaps introducing how Carrie met all the girls, and her wild stories of being young and single living in NYC would have been so much better!
2. I was hoping for more outrageous outfits being described. Although they mentioned a great bag here and there, I wanted more of Carrie describing the new fashion trends she was setting.
3. Boy drama - nothing too surprising there. Go after the hot, bad ass instead of the one that is nice, and truly cares about you. Overall, we all could definitely relate :-)
4. A couple of things didn't match up to the story plot on the movies and or tv series.
Overall, the book was cute. If you are looking for something that is a 'no brainer, easy read' go for this one!
Up next: THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, THE GIRL WHO KICKED THE HORNET’S NEST, and THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE by Stieg Larsson. Apparently these are hot books right now, that are extremely hard to put down!
