Someday, Someday Maybe

Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel

I'm so excited to review Lauren Graham's new book Someday, Someday, Maybe. Yes, that Lauren Graham. As in Lorelai Gilmore and Sarah Braverman. I was so excited to read it because I think she's so smart and talented and very down to earth. The book doesn't come out until April 30th, but it's already getting rave reviews from some awesome women!

“Sweet, funny, and full of heart . . . a dazzling debut.” - Emily Giffin

“Warm and funny, charming and smart.” - Diane Keaton

“Graham deftly captures what it’s like to be young, ambitious, and hopeful in NYC.” - Candace Bushnell

The book is set in 1995 (love that!) and it's about Franny, a struggling young actress trying to get her career going in New York City. She's given herself a three-year deadline to "make it" but she's down to her last six-months with only an ad, a waitressing job, and an acting class going for her. She lives with her best friend Jane, and friend of a friend Dan, an aspiring writer. Her back-up plan is to go back home to be near her dad and settle down with her ex-boyfriend, but she's desperate to get a real acting gig. 

Though it's not something I would normally read, I really liked this book! It's very well written, witty and sweet. I could definitely see a little bit of Lauren Graham in the main character and some of the dialogue sounded similar to Gilmore Girls. I seriously loved the '90s references! You get a good behind the scenes peek at what it takes to land an acting job. Franny deals with a showcase, auditions, callbacks, agents, filming, and other actors. She also struggles with friendships, money issues, love, fears, and finding herself.  It was predictable, but charming, and I enjoyed reading it from beginning to end.
