I read the book The Carrie Diaries a few years ago when it came out. It is a prequel to Sex and the City. I was a BIG fan of "Sex & the City" on TV so I had to read this one!
There is now a TV series based on this book on the CW network. I watched the pilot the other day and enjoyed it.
By the way, I was going to post a review of the Golden Globes but just have not had time. I thought it was very entertaining this year.
