carrie diaries 290 'Sex and the City' prequel 'The Carrie Diaries' cover art released“Sex and the City” fans can get their fix a month early — when prequel “The Carrie Diaries” is released Apr. 27, 2010, a month before “Sex and the City 2” hits theaters.

Candace Bushnell, author of “Sex and the City” book which started the eponymous series, is releasing a new series of books titled “The Carrie Diaries.”

This series will chronicle Carrie Bradshaw’s life as a high schooler. The first book will include a conflict with Carrie’s mother, her first experience falling in love and how Carrie decided to become a writer.


We can’t but think Bushnell is looking to cash-in on the female Young Adult reader set, considering the popularity of books like “Twilight” and “The Vampire Diaries.” We hope it doesn’t leave the adult fans of the “Sex and the City” TV series disappointed. The Louis Vitton-esque cover is a keeper, though.
