It is apparently loosely based on Graham's own experiences as a struggling actress in New York City in the 90s. I thought it was fun and charming - the perfect rom-com type novel. I'd definitely recommend it if you want to read something light and happy!
And now I have to confess that I've never watched Gilmore Girls. I was in high school when it started, and most of my friends were obsessed. I have a tendency to avoid things that are popular, just for the sake of being different. I'm getting better as I get older, but as a 15-year old, it was pretty bad. I finally realized that rejecting something because it is popular is just as stupid (if not more) than liking something just because it's popular. At some point, people started telling me that I talk like a Gilmore Girl. I don't really know what that means, but I'm taking it as a compliment. Anyway, I want to watch this show at some point, but it's not on Netflix instant or Amazon Prime, so I haven't gotten around to it. Maybe, maybe, someday. (see what I did there?)
But I do watch Parenthood! And I'm totally weirded out that Graham is dating her on-screen brother, Peter Krause. And I'm not completely caught up, so no spoilers! I'm about to just stop watching, because I sense impending doom and I don't want it to happen. If I stop watching, it won't happen, right? That's how TV works?
