I rarely post twice in one day, but I just had to let you guys know about the highly-anticipated CW show “The Carrie Diaries,” based on the novel by Candace Bushnell. I reviewed this “Sex and the City” prequel in September and discussed potential actresses to cast as the teenage Carrie Bradshaw last month.
Well, one of those actresses–AnnaSophia Robb–has just landed the lead role, according to Variety.com. Best known for “Bridge to Terabithia” and “Race to Witch Mountain,” this show will be sure to make Robb popular with older teens.
The novel did not include Carrie’s best friends Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte since they did not meet one another until after Carrie moves to New York, but we’ll see if producers stick to the story.
I’ll keep you updated with the latest developments, but I just wanted to let you know I called it! Who knows? Maybe the head honchos at the CW read my blog! Well, I can dream, can’t I?
PS: I’ve now reached 5,000 views! Thanks so much for reading! Love, Book Club Babe
