Waiting on Wednesday #29 - Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell.

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases.




Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell
Publisher: HarperCollins
Release date: April 2011 (US & UK)
Series: The Carrie Diaries #2

Summer is a magical time in the city and Carrie is in love with all of it - the crazy characters in her neighborhood, the vintage-clothing boutiques, the wild club scene, and the mysterious new guys who have entered her life. She’s finally in a real writing class, taking her first steps toward fulfilling her dream. And there's the fact that she gets to live in Samantha Jones's apartment.

Summer and the City brings surprising revelations as Carrie learns to navigate her way around the Big Apple, going from being a country “sparrow”as Samantha likes to call herto the person she always wanted to be. But as Carrie continues to evolve, she knows she must balance this exciting new life and her writing aspirations with the big decision that awaits her at the end of the summer.

The sequel to The Carrie Diaries gives readers insight into what turned a small-town girl into one of New York City's most unforgettable icons, Carrie Bradshaw.


I loved The Carrie Diaries, and I can't wait for this next book in the series. I'm so excited to read about Carrie and Samantha's first summer in the city together! So much fun! I think the cover art for this book is much cuter than the first book too. Both US & UK covers are cute! Which one is your favourite?

Let me know what you think, and share your WoW picks in comments! :)

  9. I prefer the UK cover. Still haven't read The Carrie Diaries. I am curious to see how this lines up with the glimpse of their youth in the SATC2 movie. Great pick!

  14. How to Knit a Heart Back Home
    By Rachael Herron
    Publication date: March 1, 2011

    Lucy Harrison sells books by day and volunteers with the Cypress Hollow fire department by night. Her life is just the way she likes it—full, even-keeled, and smooth—until bad-boy ex-cop Owen Bancroft comes back to town. Lucy has always been fearless, never scared about diving in to help others. When it comes to risking her heart, however, she realizes she's absolutely terrified.

    In a small town like Cypress Hollow, everyone knows your business—and there is nowhere to hide. Then Lucy and Owen are thrown together by the discovery of the lost work of local legend, knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Now Owen, adrift and struggling to redefine himself as a civilian without a badge, will have to learn how to open himself up to life's new possibilities . . . while Lucy decides just how much of herself she's willing to gamble on love.
