In Conclusion, Don't Worry About It Reviews
The only thing I really didn’t love about this book was how terribly short it was - you can sit down and read it cover to cover in well under an hour. Her Dad really needs to start signing her up for more speaking engagements of various kinds and then she can pick the best ones and put them together in a collection and publish a book of them for us. That would be seriously awesome!
I absolutely adore Lauren Graham. She is one of my ultimate s-heroes. Although I didn’t end up loving “Someday, Some ...more
I was looking for a short, breezy book to read after plowing through another depressing "Trump is ruining the world" narrative. I liked Graham in "Gilmore Girls" and enjoyed one of her earlier books. This one was certainly breezy, but it was too short for the price. I'm not cheap, so I usually don't even notice how much a book costs, but when I opened this one and saw that it included some not very impressive drawings and realized that there were probably not many more words in it than in two of ...more
Cute little book for graduates.
“...whatever you chose, whatever you decide to go after, the important thing is that you keep finding joy in what you’re doing, especially when the joy isn’t finding you. Treat every day like you’re starring in it.”
This book seems to define my 2017. I'm sure a lot of people can relate and enjoy the message.
I love Lauren Graham, just thought i’d preface with that. I enjoyed this and it has inspired me a little, but I think it perhaps focussed too much on acting rather than being whatever you want to be. I’d have liked to have her insights on battling the lows to get to the highs etc...
I didn't realize this was a convocation speech that Lauren Graham delivered. I really had thought that it was another full book, so I was surprised when I ended up checking a very cute-sized book out of the library.
I thought Lauren had some great thoughts in it, eloquently written and delivered with her usual wit and humour. This book came at a really good time, I think I needed to hear a lot of what I read.
One of my favourite quotes "Starring has nothing to do with how big your part it—it's a ...more
OMG why do all her books make me cry! She said all the things I needed to hear right now! Thanks Lauren!
Before getting into my raving review for this short but powerful read, I’d like to just touch upon the beautiful presentation of the physical book. This hardback has such a beautiful array of colours that remind me of spring and flowers and Easter eggs (the chocolate kinds). This novel ALSO is the prettiest baby blue color when naked, and I want to carry it everywhere with me just to accessorize.
Lauren Graham is someone I loved in Gilmore Girls. She played an amazing character who was ...more
