SEX and the City is my all time favourite show. I worship at the altar of Carrie and co. And I thought Candace Bushnell must be the most 'fabulous' author known to man. Which is why I seized the opportunity to read Lipstick Jungle.

Maybe it was because Sex and the City is on a pedestal, but Lipstick Jungle failed to impress.

It was ok. It wasn't terrible. It quenched my thirst for drama, excitement, New York scandal, fashion, career women and sisterhood, without being too sickly.

But I am not rushing out anytime soon to buy another Candace Bushnell novel.

However, I'm sure it will make an excellent, addictive TV show when it appears on our screens in the future....
