I really like the cover too. Like that there still is the bridge as well as the girl on the bike. Nice.

Aw, Diane Keaton got an advance copy of the book. Like her review on it.

Am getting more and more anxious to read it myself.

I would miss out 'the novel', but other than that I really thinks it's beautiful.

Lauren tweeted about the front cover of her book, shame we already knew what it looked it! Ahaha

Thanks for the cover! Looks pretty perfect to me.

And those reviews sound really good! Especially the one from Diane Keaton of course.

Love that Lauren's book is getting all this attention.

Does Oprah still have her book club?

Loving all the reviews on her book! Especially Diane's since Lauren loves her so much.

another review

Quote:
Lauren Graham/Lorealai Gilmore wrote a book!

First of all this is a review of a review edition from Net-Galley, however the novel’s official publication date is 30th April, 2013.

I think there is a certain amount of dread whenever a favourite actor or singer decides to try writing a book, this almost instant assumption that it’s not going to end well. I didn’t have this feeling when I heard about Lauren Graham’s debut, in fact I believed out right that she could do it, and I was proven right.

Make no mistake though, this is very much chick-lit, but it’s at least well written and well thought out chick-lit, which makes all the difference. The story here concerns an actress living in New York, who is slowly slinking towards the deadline she set for herself to have ‘made it’ by. The main character here, called Franny Banks is very likeable, and it’s very easy to simply picture Graham herself as the lead, whether it is supposed to be drawn from her own life I’m not sure, but if you’re buying this book because of her name, chances are you will picture her while reading too.

The book does have the pre-requisite love interests/love triangle, and yes it is obvious who she will eventually end up with, though Graham wisely has a little fun getting self-referential about these things through the characters to the point where it’s more amusing than cliched.

Overall this is a well-written, well-meaning, easy read from a great actress who has seemingly succeeded in a field where others have failed, and I hope it goes on to be a success for her.

4 out of 5 stars.
