Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham was the book of the month for Been Bookin’? Book Club. This month we drew out of a hat to see what we would be reading and just happened to pick the only book in the hat I did not already have. I ordered it that day and read it fairly quickly once I received it.
This title was written by actress Lauren Graham who is famous for her role on Gilmore Girls as well as Parenthood. To be completely and totally honest, I am not a big fan of her as an actress, but I digress.
Franny is a young aspiring actress in New York City in the mid 90’s. She is approaching her three year goal. She must have a significant amount of work that, without a doubt, shows she is meant to be acting in order for her to stay in New York. She is down to six months and is struggling to get any work. We follow her through her search for different auditions, her love interest for the hotty in her acting class, and her decision to get a back up plan in case she fails. Although it could have been an exciting story line, I was not all that impressed.
I was not a fan of the writing style. There were places that it was funny and the writing made spots cute, but overall I just felt that the writing drug the story down. It could have been so much better. The story, as stated above, was okay. I wish it had not ended so abruptly. I would have liked a little more detail after the current ending. Would I read this again? Probably not.
Overall, I rate this book with 3 notes!
