The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell

July 2010

Did you ever wonder about Carrie Bradshaw's teen years? Smart and witty Carrie lets us in on her senior year: the guys, the family, the fashion, the writing dreams, and (naturally) the best friends. Carrie's early story not only is true to the character we know and love, but also makes for quite the stay-up-all-night type of excellent read.

January 2013

It's cold outside, and what better time to snuggle up with a book? Or, perhaps, a movie based on a book. As we all know, January is an exciting time in Tinseltown --- the Golden Globe Awards are given out and Oscar nominations are announced. Lots of book adaptations have been recognized by the Academy this year, including big screen versions of Yann Martel's LIFE OF PI, Doris Kearns Goodwin's TEAM OF RIVALS, Victor Hugo's LES MISERABLES, and Matthew Quick’s SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK. But this month also brings a new crop of film and TV releases with print origins. Among them are Gangster Squad, “The Carrie Diaries,” John Dies at the End, and Parker, based on a character made famous by Donald E. Westlake when he wrote as “Richard Stark.”
