Product Description

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
 
“A charmer of a first novel . . . [Graham] has an easy, unforced style and, when the situation calls for it, a keen sense of the ridiculous.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“With insight, care, and an abundance of humor . . . Graham demonstrates that her acting chops are not her only talent.”—Library Journal
 
“Thoroughly charming.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“Sweet, funny, and full of heart . . . a dazzling debut.”—Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed and Where We Belong
 
“Warm and funny, charming and smart.”—Diane Keaton, New York Times bestselling author of Then Again
 
“Graham deftly captures what it’s like to be young, ambitious, and hopeful in New York City.”—Candace Bushnell, New York Times bestselling author of Sex and the City and The Carrie Diaries
 
“Fresh and funny and full of zingers, Lauren Graham’s charming writing style instantly drew me in, but it was her relatable characters (complete with doodled date-book entries!), irresistible romantic twists, and delicious plot that kept me turning the pages until well past my bedtime.”—Meg Cabot, bestselling author of the Princess Diaries and Heather Wells Mystery series

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.

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!

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.

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.

First, I have been waiting to buy this novel since I first heard of it. Having grown up watching Lauren Graham how can you not expect her writing to be smart and witty, like her? I've only read the first few chapters so far, and already love the characters and the writing style!

Second, amazon.ca, the best deals out there. Since you had this novel, I didn't have to pay the 30$ for it. THANK YOU!
