Talking As Fast As I Can From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls and Everything IN Between by: Lauren Graham

Talking As Fast As I Can

I love Lauren Graham and I was a faithful watcher of Gilmore Girls when it originally aired.  I still love her and all of the shows she has been in.  I was very excited to see this memoir come out last year.

Lauren is very humorous and she does tell some interesting stories, but I felt the the subtitle of this book gave me false hope.  I really wanted so much more info about her time shooting the show and working with the actors.  There really wasn’t much detail there.

Lauren talked a lot about her acting experiences, or lack thereof, before Gilmore Girls came to be, but I wanted some juicy tidbits about working on the show.  This was a quick read and the writing was good.  I was just a bit disappointed in the lack of detail.

I gave this book 4 crowns.

Driving Heat by: Richard Castle

This is book 7 in the Nikki Heat series.  I enjoy this series and I loved the show.  These are fun, fast reads.  They always include a bit of drama as well as humor.

I won’t go into detail about this story because it is the 7th in the series.  Just know that all of your favorite characters are in this book!

I gave this book 5 crowns.

A State of Jane by: Meredith Schorr

My Review:

This was the second book that I read this month from Meredith Schorr.  She has an easy to read style that is filled with humor and real life situations.  This is a story about a girl who is feeling the pressure to find ” The One” and to start her educational path towards becoming a lawyer.  Let’s just say that in 5 or 6 months she has had sex with just as many guys and her attitude towards men and relationships has changed drastically.  Not only has that changed but so has her attitude.

This was a fun read but I was annoyed in the beginning of the book with Jane.  She had such a pessimistic and nasty attitude that I didn’t really care what happened to her.  That does change and so did my opinion but it was a rough start for me.  This book is about love but not in the way that you think.

I received an E-ARC of this book from the Publishers through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I give this book 3 crowns.

Radiator Days by: Lucy Knisley

radiator-days

This is a compilation of Lucy’s earlier comics and there is no real continuity in the strips throughout the book.  Some of the comic strips were hilarious and others left me confused.  This book does contain some graphic images and “naughty” words and scenarios.

Although I am a fan of Lucy’s art, this was not my favorite book by her.  I am glad that I didn’t pick this one up first because I may not have continued with these graphic novels.  I highly recommend that read any of the other books by her.  Relish is still my favorite and I have to read her newest book which I got for Christmas.

I gave this book 2 crowns.
