"Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker didn't seem overly thrilled with the action during Wednesday's Kings-Rangers game at Madison Square Garden.

The actress, who appeared to be freezing inside the Garden, was clearly riveted to Maggie Shipstead's novel "Astonish Me" during L.A.'s 4-2 win.

TMZ has many more pics of Parker reading the book, which came out in 2014 and is described on Amazon as follows:

"For years Joan has been trying to forget her past, to find peace and satisfaction in her role as wife and mother.
