Book Review- The Carrie Diaries

So I finally finished The Carrie Diaries last night. It took me just under two weeks to read and it honestly shouldn't have taken me that long because this book doesn't have much substance. It took me two weeks because I had such a hard time getting into it that I would put it down for days and have to will myself to pick it up. I. Did. Not. Like. This. Book. And I hate that because I love Candace Bushnell and Sex and the City. This book had to much high school drama for me. I should have seen that coming since it's set when Carrie is in high school. I would have much rather read about Carrie post high school and her first year in New York or Carrie and the girls in their early to mid 20s trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives. I give this book a D+. Have any of ya'll read this book? What did you think?

My next book is Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin. I have LOVED her other four books so I'm pretty excited about this one. I've only read a few chapters so far but I think I won't be disappointed.
Hope everyone is having a great week so far! I have a date with Gabe tonight at our favorite Cajun restaurant. :) Oh and did anyone catch the season finales of Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill last night? I was left with a big WTF at the end of both! I hate when they leave you hanging until fall.

I totally agree! I am just finishing up this book...and I have to say--it's not what I thought it would be. Very juvenile...and does not in any way portray Carrie as I thought she would be portrayed. Very disappointed...but I guess since SATC is so wonderful, I was set up for disappointment because the standards were set so high!

I just finished Heart of the Matter a few days ago! Not my favorite of her books but still really good!
