Christmas gift for the win over here!
You may not know this about me but I am a huge fan of The Gilmore Girls. I think a Lorelai & Rory Gilmore mashup is most likely my spirit animal. The fast talking, coffee drinking, book reading, pop culture junkies are my people, my tribe if you will. If I could live in any TV created universe or bubble it would be, without a doubt, Stars Hollow. My mother being the thoughtful and generous creature that she is, gifted me with Lauren Grahams latest novel for Christmas and I have literally devoured it.
Ok, so maybe not literally….I but raced through it in one sitting and could. not. get. enough.
Written as a memoir with heavy emphasis on her time spent working on the original Gilmore Girls show as well as the reboot, Lauren Graham regales us with her tales from childhood up through those famous last words on the Gilmore Girls revival. Everything from houseboat living, kindergarten skipping, and butt auditioning to her major film successes both on the small and big screen. Oh, and thanks for filling us in on the top secret Hollywood diet secrets, you’ve saved me oodles on diet books, much obliged! This book is light and fun, witty and downright hilarious. I’m not even going to try and lie and say I didn’t tear up as she described her time back on set for the Gilmore Girls revival. (Ok…. confession….. it was a downright ugly cry…there I said it.) Thank you Lauren for opening yourself up and giving us a glimpse into the life of the women behind the infamous Lorelai Gilmore!
Who else is a Gilmore Girl fanatic?!
See ya next week!
