I love books (clearly) and I love movies, so I thought it would be fun to feature more book-to-movie info on Steph's Stacks.
I would love to hear about some of your most anticipated book-to-movie releases!
Candice Bushnell's Carrie Diaries is a prequel to her best-selling novel Sex and the City (which the hit series was based on). So, it's the eighties and are girl Carrie is a teenager with big dreams and boy troubles and fun friends.
CW has developed a series based on Bushnell's books which premieres today. Early buzz is pretty good and I have my DVR set and ready to go!
Before Carrie Bradshaw hit the big time in the City, she was a regular girl growing up in the suburbs of Connecticut. How did she turn into one of the most-read social observers of our generation?
The Carrie Diaries opens up in Carrie's senior year of high school. She and her best friends -- Walt, Lali, Maggie, and the Mouse -- are inseparable, amid the sea of Jens, Jocks and Jets. And then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture. Sebastian is a bad boy-older, intriguing, and unpredictable. Carrie falls into the relationship that she was always supposed to have in high school-until a friend's betrayal makes her question everything. With her high school days coming to a close, Carrie will realize it's finally time to go after everything she ever wanted.
Rabid fans of Sex and the City will love seeing Carrie Bradshaw evolve from a regular girl into a sharp, insightful writer. They'll learn about her family background -- how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. We'll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where the next Carrie Diaries book will take place
“What if I'm a princess on another planet? And no one on this planet knows it?”
"Sometimes I think all the trouble in the world is caused by men. If there were no men, women would always be happy."
“Funny always makes the bad things go away.”
“If a woman could take care of herself, would she still need a man? Would she even want one? And if she didn't want a man, what kind of woman would she be? Would she even be a woman? Because it seemed if you were a woman, the only thing you were really supposed to want was a man.”
