Fans of the Gilmore Girls will love this book. Fans of Lauren Graham will ADORE this book. Lauren Graham has written her first Biography and second book and she gives teasing snippets of her life on the set of Parenthood and Gilmore Girls with a few flashbacks to other bits and pieces that she has done in her acting career. She talks candidly about the times when she didn’t know if she could afford to eat or pay her rent, to the time when she finally realised that she had made it. For anyone starting out at anything, this is inspiring as well as insightful if you are huge fans of the aforementioned shows.
Goodreads describes this book as a collection of personal essays. That just puts me right off. Essays are for studying, studying is hard and hurts my head and I really don’t want to sit and read someone else’s essays for fun…. So ignore what Goodreads says and treat it like an ordinary book with chapters about the life of someone amazing and inspiring.
This will confirm what we already knew. Lauren Graham is Lorelai Gilmore.
If you enjoyed: The Gilmore Girls then you will absolutely love this. Same goes for Parenthood. If you also enjoy celebrity biographies with a bit of humour then this is the book for you.
The good news: There are spoilers BUT Graham gives a good warning beforehand. The bad news is that you’ll be so engrossed in the book you won’t care and will want to read anyway.
