3.5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️

It took me a little bit to get into this book…actually for the first time ever, thought about not finishing it, at least in audio format. (She referred to pictures throughout the book that I obviously couldn’t see and she’s not joking about talking fast!). But as it went on, I remembered why I like her as an actress. She’s fun and lighthearted and someone I think I’d like to be friends with. I would have loved to be on set with her and her “families” and to have been a part of something so special.

So do I recommend? I do. Sometimes it’s nice just to have fun. And that is what this was.

Always fun to fuel my GG addiction. Love Lauren Graham for her no-nonsense style and straight talking.

It took me a while to get into it, but by the end, I genuinely liked Franny, and wished Lauren Graham wrote even more chapters about Dan. Also, did they officially end up together? Did Dan move to LA to be with her & pursue his screenwriting career? What happened with her dad and Mary?? Did James Franklin finally get the kick in the head that he deserved?

So many unanswered questions.

Also, what was up with that weird run in with Joe Melville? What a shmuck.

A pleasant collection of essays, entertaining to listen to. Most of the Gilmore Girls stories were in her previous collection, Talking As Fast As I Can, so these essays cover other topics, from wellness retreats to working (and shopping) at Barney's to adopting a pandemic puppy. "Old Lady Jackson" makes a delightful reappearance.
