Here I am, blogging again. I really missed it, but was so busy. I know that I probably will not meet my Goodreads goal because I was off of Goodreads for so long, but I want to try to blog again. It probably won't be as regularly as it used to be, but it will be a start.
Enjoy the review!
The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Carrie Diaries was a great coming of age story.
I came across this book not knowing what to expect. Many reviews I had read about it had said that there was too much sex in this book. I, however, did not feel that way. Carrie acted like a typical teenager in most ways as she and her friends grew up.
I thought that Carrie was a great character. She was so realistic and I felt like I could connect with her. She was a strong young lady who sometimes made bad decisions. Her friends were also realistic and really funny.
The romance was good. Sebastian didn't sound like the perfect boyfriend, and I had never really liked him. Lali stealing Sebastian from Carrie was the best part of the book. It showed Carrie that she didn't need a boyfriend to be happy. It also helped her feel more confident about her decision to go to the writing program.
Even though this book wasn't deep or exceptionally written, I still liked it. The writing was unique, and the plot kept me reading.
