I’m not going to lie, I got this book simply because I love Gilmore Girls. As soon as I noticed it, I wanted to read it. I saw it for the first time when I was on the Indigo site looking for more books. I’ve owned it for like a year because my To Be Read pile is way to long but I finally got around to reading it this month! I’m attempting to read more of the ones I own before buying more but we will see how long that lasts.
I’m not sure how to explain it but I like and dislike this book for the same reason. Or I guess I should say that’s one reason as overall I did like it. I will forever associate Lauren Graham with Lorelai Gilmore. The way she writes reminds me of how Lorelai talks. It’s fast paced, jumps around a lot, and covers a lot of topics in a short span. I love that but it feels like there are so many extra, needless words included which made me skip around the page more. I feel like this would have been so much better as an audio book! Of course it would have to be read by Lauren Graham though.
I loved seeing how her career developed and moved forward. There were pictures included too which obviously made it better. This was written around the time when they released Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. I like being able to see how she felt about them all getting back together. I also liked that she suspects there might be more to the show because I definitely want there to be more.
I also liked seeing her view on love and dating in Hollywood. How she became vegan just to impress Ellen Degeneres, and her different work experiences.
All in all I did like the book but I won’t be reading it again. Some books I love enough to reread even when I know what’s going to happen but not this one. I do recommend it though if you like Lauren Graham. It’s still worth a read.
