Someday, Someday, Maybe. - Lauren Graham ★★★★

Note: I won this book from Goodreads.com from the first reads giveaway contest.

Actress Lauren Graham has stepped out of the acting world and has now taken a seat at a writers desk. Someday, Someday, Maybe is her first novel and I think she did fairly well on it.  Someday, Someday, Maybe is the tale of Franny Banks wanting to be an actress. She moves to New York, takes an acting class and goes to auditions here and there. She hasn't been making the progress she needs so she set a deadline. If she doesn't become an actress by her deadline, she'll give up.

I liked Graham's writing style. It reminded me of how she was in Gilmore Girls (I liked that show!), so although there were times when Franny went off on these Random tangents...it didn't bother me. I was use to Lorelai (in Gilmore Girls) doing the same thing. It just seemed fitting to me. I liked the Filofax pages and I liked how........* INSERT SPOILER ALERT HERE.....READ BOTTOM OF REVIEW FOR SPOILER........   The only thing that I disliked in Someday, Someday, Maybe was Franny grew up wanting to be an Actress. She attends acting school, yet it seemed like she wasn't too familiar with how things go in the business. I'm not an actress and I even know what the terms mean or what the "protocol" is. It happened a few times, but it wasn't anything to big that deterred me from liking the book.

*SPOILER: I liked how towards the end it discussed how she regrets not going with the agent that she liked in the first place. Not going by her gut instinct and choosing the "big name."  Just because something is big, famous and well known...doesn't mean its the best choice. Someone else may be the underdog, but they may be the one to help your dreams come true.
