#26 - Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham
Someday, Someday, Maybe - Lauren Graham

Lauren Graham is a woman of many talents. I am absolutely in love with her acting and now I’ve discovered she can also write really well. I’ve listened to the audiobook of Talking as Fast as I Can and I was totally in love with the book. So obviously, I had to read this one.

 

I also listened to the audiobook because it’s Lauren Graham herself reading it. And she is so good at it! I could picture everything she said in details, I was not distracted (which happens a lot with audiobook, English not being my mother tongue, sometimes my brain forgets to listen) and I could not stop listening to it.

 

The storyline is nothing really original (actually it is really similar to Lauren Graham’s life!) but it was told in a beautiful way. The different relationships of the main character are really authentic and I could easily relate to the characters.

 

I think she did an amazing job and I know that I have to read everything she writes in the future!

#17 - Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) by Lauren Graham
Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls (and Everything in Between) - Lauren Graham

I never read non-fiction book, and even less biographies and the like. But I was browsing Audible because I had no idea what to buy with my credit of the month and found this and I noticed that it was read by Lauren Graham so I thought it was perfect. It was not difficult to convince me then. 

I am not really into movies and series and actors and things like that. I’m really bad at remembering famous actor names for example. But I’ve always loved Lauren Graham. I think she is fascinating, she always has really interesting roles and she is hilarious. I’m even thinking about doing a Lauren Graham movie/series list. 

Anyway, that is why I decided to get this audiobook. And I’m glad I did because it was amazing. She makes you think about the world you live in, but in such a subtle way. She makes you want to change a lot of things in your life but she is not even telling you to do it, that’s how good she is. Plus, she is hilarious. I was laughing so hard sometimes it was a bit dangerous (I’m listening to audiobook in my car, almost could not see the road because I was in tears). 

With this book she has just proven that she is so much more than just a good actress. 

I loved the part where she talks about the set of Gilmore Girls and all the anecdotes about filming this series. You also discovered how she became the famous actress she is today. I’m so glad I learned more about this beautiful person because I really do think she is extraordinary. I’m definitely going to read her novel (Someday, someday, maybe) and probably all of the books she will ever write. 

If you want to know more about the filming of Gilmore Girls (and/or Parenthood) and at the same time discovering her thoughts about simple things, just read it. I also totally recommend to listen to the audiobook because it was really well done (the problem is that you do not see the pictures she is referring too). 

(Spoiler alert: she DOES talk very fast)
