Publisher's Summary

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.

Sadly, this is not The Gilmore Girls.

I downloaded this with the hope that it would be some light, fluff filler while I anxiously awaited publication of "The Ocean at the End of the Lane", but sadly, "Someday, Someday, Maybe" didn't even provide that. I was expecting and hoping for "Gilmore Girls", but it turned out be be only a poorly-written, chick-lit soap opera. Shame on me for not remembering that Gilmore Girls was written by Amy Sherman-Palladino, not Lauren Graham.

Love the performance!

What did you love best about Someday, Someday, Maybe?

I love Lauren Graham's reading of her book. I'm not sure I would like this as much to read myself, but I love listening to it. She is an excellent performer and I am thoroughly enjoying the book--I only have a tiny bit left and I just downloaded it yesterday. Definitely recommend it!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Franny is my favorite character because you see her struggle, you see her insecurities, yet you see her strength too. I love that she can laugh at herself, because who of us doesn't do that, or at least need to do that? She's someone I would love to be friends with.
