This book is wonderful! And it was released at a perfect time for me. I had just come off maternity leave, during which I watched the original Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, so I was positively steeped in Lauren Graham. Confession: I bought this book for my sister for Christmas... and read it first. (I can't be the only person who's done this, right?)
I loved this book! I quite literally laughed out loud while reading it. In it, Graham covers everything from her childhood to the original Gilmore Girls to Parenthood to the new Gilmore Girls, and everything in between. It sounds like a lot, and like it'd be a dense book, but it isn't! It's presented like a series of vignettes, so you get snapshots. You don't get buried in information. I learned so much about her and her career. I felt like I was spouting Lauren Graham fun facts for the next couple weeks after reading it! Y'all, Lauren Graham is an actress/celebrity who has actual writing talent.
*Side note: I didn't really believe in "reading slumps" until this book. I was slogging through another book, though, and just wasn't making much progress at all with it. I picked up this one and read it in 36 hours. The other book was a reading slump book! I didn't recognize it, because I didn't believe in it. Now I do!
*I purchased and then nearly immediately gifted my copy of Talking as Fast as I Can.
