    One thought on “Summer and the City”

    1. eh. I don't know how to feel? I definitely didn't enjoy it as much as The Carrie Diaries. I was pretty disappointed, to be honest. Carrie was really annoying in this one. In THE CARRIE DIARIES, I felt she was flawed but still entertaining. In SUMMER AND THE CITY, I couldn't stand her. I just found her to be really annoying, obnoxious and kind of ridiculous. I'm not sure if she was meant to be, but it ended up really annoying me. Her arrogance was totally unfounded, and I just was going shuut upp [...]

    2. As I've said in my review for the Carrie Diaries I love this series. It is what "Sex and the City" should have been instead of that horrible book of mini interviewsBut anyway, Carrie is out of school, and is now in NYC. Carrie is Carrie again, she just doesn't fit in well anywhere else in my opinion. She goes through a lot of crazy antics in this book, and it's fun to watch her grow up, and become the lady we love.At the end of this book I was so excited to see that she is going to be meeting an [...]

    3. I much preferred this to the first installment of the teen Carrie Bradshaw. I think it was mainly to do with the fact that the characters from the TV series that I was familiar with were more predominant in this book.I had to keep reminding myself this book was set in the 80s I felt it wasn't referred to a lot, one instance only comes to mind when the actual year or period was mentioned so I kept imagining New York now rather than back then.The characters were more interesting, although I felt t [...]

    4. I sincerely, truly adored the first book in this series : The Carrie DiariesAnd so, I was compelled to grab the second book. It helped that it had three of my favourite ingredients:a) New York Cityb) The tale of a fledgling writerc) The coming-of-age journey of the delightfully quirky and iconic Carrie BradshawSadly, at the end of this fairly chunky read.I had to go'eh'.The plot and characters are predictable. You can immediately tell who is the last-page love-interest, who is going through the [...]

    5. Another good summer read; I'm about halfway through this one. The plot brings Carrie to NYC and brings Carrie, Samantha, and Miranda (so far) together. I assume Charlotte will make an appearance eventually.I finished this yesterday. I was right; Charlotte did make an appearance. Again, if you liked the tv show, you'll enjoy these books. Good, entertaining, mindless summer reads.

    6. The second book in Bushnell's Sex and the City prequel series is a vast improvement over the unremarkable first, The Carrie Diaries, thanks to its addition of some familiar faces and SATC's "Fifth Lady," New York City. And while fans of the show might be confused or disappointed that the books don't strictly follow the show's lore, it still manages to capture the energy and sentiments of the show enough that readers should enjoy this "alternate universe" Carrie and her navigation of dating, frie [...]

    7. Originally Reviewed at Novel EscapesSummer in the City picks up right where The Carrie Diaries left off: Carrie Bradshaw landing in New York City for the first time. I looked forward to this novel, having had enjoyed The Carrie Diaries, and wanted to discover how the infamous friendships from Sex in the City began, but unfortunately it just didn’t capture my attention and I actually found it irritating at times. I found Carrie more needy, demanding and whiny and much less insightful and though [...]

    8. Such a disappointing read. I really enjoyed Carrie Diaries, so I was waiting for a enjoyable reading experience. It is Carrie's first summer in NYC; she has already met Samantha and now she meets Miranda and their friendship starts to develop. Carrie is nothing like i see her: she is extremely annoying, pathetic and full of herself. I think the characterization of Carrie was the main reason I disliked this novel so much. Samantha is not at all as I imagine her either, but from the three young wo [...]

    9. Daar waar deel 1 nog veel weg had van een highschool drama, is het tweede deel echt een geweldige stap de goede kant op! Eindelijk zijn we aangekomen in NY waar alles gebeurd leer je de bekende Amanda kennen, en ook de feministische Miranda maakt haar entree. Voor de echte die-hard fans van Sex and the City een absolute must!!!

    10. Bushnellin kirjoja on vaan niin helppo lukea. Luen samaan aikaan Jane Austenia, ja kyllä tällaisen "helpomman" kirjan lukeminen virkistää. Luin pari sivua joskus vuonna 2016 ja vasta nyt sain kirjan ahmittua loppuun, mutta ahmimalla se loppu sitten menikin.Se on hassua, miten jokaiseen kirjan hahmoon pystyy samaistumaan omalla tavallaan. Kaikissa meissä on pieni pala Samanthaa, Carrieta, Mirandaa ja Charlottea. Plus tykkään tästä 80's -vibasta ihan mielettömästi!

    11. I admit, I wanted to give this book three stars, but then I thought better of itOkay, so, I think I finally understand these books. They're satire at its finest. The reason that Carrie Bradshaw is so abhorrent is that the author is trying to poke fun at teenage girls. I think. Or at least I hopeAfter being so disappointed in the first of the series, I don't know why I picked up the second one. If only because I am warped and can't leave a series unfinished, even if a rotten one. But because Carr [...]

    12. I am a huge, HUGE Sex and the City fan. This is the first book I have read on the Kindle app (holding an actual book and feeding my son is not a talent I seem to possess). This is the second novel in this series, which follows a teenaged Carrie Bradshaw. Carrie longs to be a writer. Every fiber in her tells her that is what she is meant to do. The problem is, she struggles to actually write (something I can relate to all too well myself). Summer and the City begins with Carrie bright-eyed and op [...]

    13. OMG you finally know how the girls met. Honestly though Samantha Jones wants to be married???? Someone pinch me. But I guess if you get torched good enough you never want a repeat. I didn't even kow sex and the city was a book I have to get that one next but hey its amazing to read books that have influenced a whole generation of women. I love Charlotte's innocence, I love Carrie's writing, I love Miranda's brain, but I really love Samantha's guts. Now you know in what order they met and how the [...]

    14. I was very excited to read this book since I really enjoyed the first book. That being said, I didn't like this one nearly as much. This book takes place directly after the first one ends with Carrie arriving in NYC. She meets an older guy, and becomes friends with Samantha Jones as well as not one but two other SATC characters. I felt the plot was a little humdrum and slow moving, and left the reader with little surprises. The book felt like an episode of Sex and the City, which isn't necessari [...]

    15. I’m a part of what they call the “Sex and the cCty” generation. I grew up admiring the life that Carrie et al. had in New York City, but fully understanding that it was not where my life was going. This allowed me to live vicariously through these girls as a teenager who couldn’t even spell Manolo Blahnik. Few people know that this series was originally a book. Even fewer people have read this book. This is a good thing because it was one of the worst books I have ever read and made New [...]

    16. Šo amerikāņu rakstnieces Kendaisas Bušnelas grāmatu "Vasara un lielpilsēta" izvēlējos, jo tā ir sērijas "Kerijas dienasgrāmatas" otrā daļa. Lasot pirmo daļu, mani ļoti ieinteresēja stāsts par jaunu meiteni Keriju, kura, dzīvodama mazpilsētā, par savu hobiju uzskatīja rakstīšanu skolas avīzei. Otrajā daļā turpinājās tas pats stāsts, taču Kerija ir tikko pabeigusi vidusskolu un sākusies vasara, kuru meitene nolēmusi pavadīt savā sapņu pilsētā Ņujorkā. Tur vi [...]

    17. If you are looking for a fun, entertaining and lighthearted book to read this summer you need to pick up Summer and the City. This novel continues where the Carrie Diaries left us, as Carrie Bradshaw begins her relationship with NYC. Being a long-time lover of Bushnell's original Sex and the City book and a fan of the show, it was interesting to learn how the character of Carrie developed into the phenomena that we know and love. In fact, one of the most satisfying components of this novel is th [...]

    18. I love the 'Sex in the City' series, so I enjoy reading the books the author is now writing.I love the characters, and they are well developed. The story flows quickly, and is easy to read.It is also entertaining.The book, like the series, finds its strength from dealing with human drama. The problems the girls face are problems we all face, one way or another. The City treats them like it treats us all, and that reality and universality is what keeps the plot and the book going. We care for the [...]

    19. I hated this book. And I don't throw that around often, because let's face it hate is a strong word. I really was hoping for something good in this book. Especially since the ending of the last book made you think that Carrie was going to have a world full of adventures. More like a world full of snooze fests. Every time I thought something interesting was going to happen Candace Bushnell ruined it. 1 step forward 5 steps back. I honestly don't know why I finished it, maybe because I thought som [...]

    20. Summer and the city by Candace Bushnell, had a lots of reputation and recommendation because it is a Carrie Diaries novel. This book established as a young adult book reader, which my expectation was not as exactly the book should be. There are three main characters in the story, who is Samantha, Miranda and Carrie. They are all young woman of age of 18-20.But Carrie is the storyteller and the most the story is about her. She tried hard to convince her father to spend her summer in New York. The [...]

    21. I liked this book very much. I have read it in 4 days during my weekend trip and I can tell you I couldn't stop reading!I love that it's set in the 80's, i love that it continues just where it ended in The Carrie Diaries 1. I love that you get to know how Carrie met Miranda and some other people :) (i don't want to spoil anything!)Oh, and i like the end of the book! :)What I didn't like that much was the fact that Carrie behaves in a way that is totally uncommon for her in the series. She seems [...]

    22. No me gustó porque, como persona inteligente que soy (nótese el sarcasmo), lo leí sin saber que era un segundo libro.

    23. Though I did not read the first book of Carrie diaries, I enjoyed reading this one. Its about a girl from small town making it to the big apple with some drama here and there. Suitable for teenagers I presume but of course it's never too late to read anything you want at any age.

    24. I really enjoyed this book aside from the fact that Carrie’s ego was extremely annoying and ridiculous at times. Her being 17 and that mature just wasn’t believable for me and drove me crazy. It was fun to meet Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte! A very cute, fun, and quick read.

    25. Jméno Candace Bushnell se nám jistojistě spojí s knižní sérií Sex ve městě, ale také Džungle rtěnek. Obojí se dočkalo svého seriálového zpracování, v případě Sexu ve městě také dvou filmů. Málokterá žena už někdy neslyšela jméno Carrie Bradshaw. S přibývající se oblíbeností knih žánru young adult se i Candance rozhodla do těchto vod zabrousit, a proto svým fanouškům poskytla pohled na telecí léta jejich oblíbené hrdinky, Carrie.Bushnell se narodi [...]

    26. *4.5*After the scandalous and juicy The Carrie Diaries, I was eager to re-enter Carrie's life as she made her way in New York. Therefore, when Summer and the City appeared in my mailbox, I was excited beyond words. Thankfully, Summer and the City was even better than The Carrie Diaries. Summer and the City begins just a day after The Carrie Diaries ended. Even though Carrie's welcome into the city was everything but warm, she's excited to start her summer there in style, and as it begins, everyt [...]

    27. Who is Carrie Bradshaw?To know that, you need first to read the Carrie Diaries, then Sex and the City But I recommend you watch the series while reading to relate I'm just saying! But in case you haven't watched them already, I have to warn you you may get a little bit confused and even mad sometimes because of the differences between the book and the show. I was really angry when I found out that some characters were completely eclipsed (e.g. Missy, Carrie and Dorrit's younger sister) in the C [...]
