COFFEE AND BOOKS: TOP READS FOR GILMORE GIRLS FANS

Posted on Mon, Jun 19, 2017

Coffee and Gilmore Girls go hand in hand. Preferably a coffee in one and a Lauren Graham book in the other. If you are as big of a fan as we are you are going to love these books! Lauren Graham was amazing as Lorelei but, did you know she is even better as an author. Her recently released memoir is a New York Times bestseller as well as her very fist novel. Ms. Graham is a woman of many talents, she has already more than proven herself as an actress and now, her writing talents are just as amazing!

Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel

by: Lauren Graham

4 star Amazon rating / New York Times bestseller

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, more here...>>

Coffee at Luke's: An Unauthorized Gilmore Girls Gabfest (Smart Pop series)

by: Jennifer Crusie

4 star Amazon rating

In the fall of 2000, Gilmore Girls premiered on the WB and viewers were introduced to the quirky world of Stars Hollow and the Gilmores who had made it their home, mother-daughter best friends Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. With the show in its seventh season on the fledgling CW, Coffee at Luke's is the perfect look at what has made the show such a clever, beloved part of the television landscape for so long.

What’s a male viewer to do when he finds both mother and daughter attractive? And how is creator Amy Sherman-Palladino like Emily Gilmore? From the show’s class consciousness to the way the characters are shaped by the books they read, the music they listen to and the movies they watch, Coffee at Luke's looks at the sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking...more here:>>
