I was a late-comer to the world of Gilmore Girls, I’d heard of it of course, but only started to watch it when it came to Netflix last year. And what’s not to like, a program about an independent woman and her equally independent daughter, who just so happens to love books…
I binge watched the whole thing on Netflix in a matter of weeks, so when I read that Lauren Graham had written an autobiography that obviously covered her time on Gilmore Girls and the reboot, I knew I wanted to read it.
While reading, it was hard to tell the difference between Lauren and Lorelai, they seem to have very similar personalities, bubbly and chatty and unable to stop talking. This felt more like a nice chat with a friend over a glass of wine than a 200+page book, I read the whole thing in one go, staying up til after 1am to finish reading. In fact, if I’d read the back of the book before I dived in, I would have read this, which couldn’t have been more true:
This book is like a cozy night in, catching up with your best friend, laughing and swapping stories, and—of course—talking as fast as you can.
If you ever watched the Gilmore Girls, I would definitely recommend this as a lovely sneak peek inside that world, as well as finding out more about what makes Lauren tick and what lead her to Lorelai.
