A rare post where I won’t be linking a new YouTube video. Last week I posted my reading list for 2018 and today I am happy to say I have read one from the list. I began with Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham from Gilmore Girls. I add the Gilmore Girls comment because that is the main reason for the book being on my list. Thankfully it did not disappoint, even before the gossip and insights regarding the show.
I mentioned this in my video, but I really enjoy reading autobiography and memoir style books. Reading about other people’s success in things I do not necessarily understand and will likely never experience is fascinating to me. When I was little I dreamed of becoming an actress – oh come on who hasn’t? But this book got me thinking about how much I enjoyed drama class and even those few improv classes I took in middle school. It got me excited to add act in the theeeeear-tar as Lauren would say. I have added that back onto my bucket list.
I am not the sort of booktube, book reviewer or just book reader to know how to even start critiquing a book, but I enjoyed this one. I have no idea if it is well written, but will say that I never once thought about how it was written. I could not put the thing down and the thought just did not exist during my reading experience.
I will also say that I now look forward to reading Lauren’s other book and future books to come.
One last also for this post… I do now consider Lauren Graham a lifelong friend. Cannot wait for Talking As Fast As I Can Two, because it ended on a cliffhanger, right?
