NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead―and keep it together―in New York City.
 
It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing “important” work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates―her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer―are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn’t exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she’s not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she’d happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything—and finding a hair product combination that works.
 
Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where she’ll finally have a chance to perform for people who could actually hire her. And she can’t let herself be distracted by James Franklin, a notorious flirt and the most successful actor in her class, even though he’s suddenly started paying attention. Meanwhile, her bank account is rapidly dwindling, her father wants her to come home, and her agent doesn’t return her calls. But for some reason, she keeps believing that she just might get what she came for.
 
Someday, Someday, Maybe is a story about hopes and dreams, being young in a city, and wanting something deeply, madly, desperately. It’s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job.

Review

“A winning, entertaining read . . . [Lauren Graham] has smartly mined just the right details from her own experience, infusing her work with crackling dialogue and observations about show business that ring funny and true. . . . Just like the screenwriters of the best romantic comedies, she has taken elements of the familiar and spun them into a novel that’s heartfelt, hilarious and, hopefully, just the first example of what she can do with the written word.”The Washington Post

4.0 out of 5 stars a smart and funny read May 27 2013
By Lynne Frappier TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Someday, Someday, Maybe is the story of Franny Banks: adorable actress with great comedic timing, sharp wit, and a lack of self-esteem. I think the book was cute ... it certainly didn't lack in smart dialogue, authentic situations, and some pretty hilarious supporting characters. A recommended summer read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! May 24 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book based solely on the fact that Lauren Graham wrote it. I wasnt sure how good it would be, seeing as it was her first novel. But...I loved this book!! I love a book that can make me actually laugh out loud. I never got bored reading this and it hooked me right away, I didn't need to force myself to read the first 50 pages thinking it will get better. I cant wait to see if she'll write another! Great job Lauren!

I loved this book. It was perfect for an easy enjoyable read. The story flowed along and the author instilled her sense of humor into the book. There was a real mix of emotions and you could certainly relate it to a time in your life when you had goals, and struggled in your youth. I love Lauren Graham- I really enjoyed the book immensely and would recommend it as a perfect summer time read for the cottage or a great book to pass along to your girlfriend- young or old.
This book wins on all levels!

4.0 out of 5 stars a great adult fiction novel April 16 2014
Format:Paperback
I love Gilmore Girls. Yes I know, this isn't related to Gilmore Girls except for the tiny fact that the author of Someday, Someday, Maybe played Lorelei in Gilmore Girls. I know I probably shouldn't relate her work with Gilmore Girls but I can't lie and say I didn't pick this book up for the sole reason that the author is Lauren Graham, because that is the reason. Still, I really enjoy reading chick lits and when I read the synopsis I knew this was something I might enjoy.
and I did enjoy it. It was definitely a different book from the usual YA or romantic chick lits I've read in the past. Someday, Someday, Maybe follows the struggle of Franny to becoming an actress in 1995. Franny reminded me SO MUCH of the main protagonists in Sophie Kinsella's books. They are funny, quirky, don't have a brain to mouth filter, and get themselves in the most ridiculous and embarrassing situations but miraculously always come out of it bolder and with their chin held high. This is why I loved Franny so much. I loved her dedication to her work and especially her Filofax entries (even if her handwriting was a bit hard to read!).
There are two problems that I had with this book, the first being the somewhat draggy plot in the middle of the novel and the next is the romance. I didn't care much about it because I didn't like the love interest and just who Franny was around him. Still, this isn't about the romance and it is about Franny and her struggle and ups and downs of trying to make it as an actor in New York in the 1990s. I do have to say that I really liked Franny's roommates and friends. They were very supportive and always had her back. Someday, Someday, Maybe is a great debut by Graham and I wonder how much of Franny's experiences actually apply to her life. I can't wait to read more by Graham because she clearly is a fantastic story teller.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected Feb. 14 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a good read but I think I enjoyed it more because I love Fran on Parenthood. If you don't know who she is then you would probably not enjoy reading about the start of her career.
