Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell

Summer is a magical time in New York City and Carrie is in love with all of it - the crazy characters in her neighbourhood, 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 towards fulfilling her dream.

The 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 realises that making it in New York is much more complicated than she ever imagined.

With her signature wit and sparkling humour, 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.


  1. oooo Have you read this? How tempting! I too, am totally addicted to S&TC, I have watched the series three times and thinking about starting again for the fouth. In fact, i might! Im such a sucker for it! x

  2. I have actually just started! YAY. I read the first one and this is the sequel. I enjoyed the first one. Don't expect it to be life changing but it was definitely a great escape book for some 'me time'. I secretly love the girliness of these books. And it was fun getting to know Carrie before she became Carrie Bradshaw! So cute. X
