2016 was a good year for Gilmore Girls' fans. Not only did streaming network giant Netflix revive the seres in the shape of Gilmore Gilrs: A Year in the Life, but also star Lauren Graham released her memoir Talking as Fast as I can - a compilation of essays from Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls and everything in between. The star that plays the main role of Lorelai Gilmore in the beloved TV show gives fan the insight scoop of the series along with behind-the-scenes dispatches from the set of the new Gilmore Girl and she also talks about her fascinating personal life.

The book reveals lough-out-loud stories about Lauren Graham's life, including her childhood and how she made it to stardom. She reflects on the book about the time when she looks back in her life while sitting in her trailer on the Parenthood set and asks herself, “Did you, un, make it?”
She opens up about the challenges of being single in Hollywood, a world where everyone from the far and wide, either you know them or not, are interested in her love life and worried that about her being single.
Did you know that Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore) told Graham to date that “wonderful actor on Six Feet Under” also known as Peter Krause, who happens to be her current partner. Talk about motherly advice.
One of her hilarious stories about the time she auditioned her butt for a role and her experience being a judge on Project Runway (“It's like I had a fashion-induced blackout”).
In “What it Was like, Part One,” Graham sits down for an epic Gilmore Girls marathon, which she had never seen before. What's more, she confessed she had never stop to watch herself on the screen. There she reflects on being cast as the fast-talking Lorelai Gilmore. The essay “What it was Like, Part Two” reveals how it felt to pick up the role again nine years later, and what doing so has meant to her.
There is so much to learn about Lauren: She once tried to bond with Ellen DeGeneres by becoming vegan, she talks about the challenges of meeting guys at awards shows (“If you're meeting someone for the first time after three hours of hair, makeup, and styling, you've already set the bar too high”), and she's a card-carrying REI shopper (“My bungee cords now earn points!). Graham even gives you the ultimate Hollywood diet and saves thousands of dollars in the process.
There's no doubting she is unique. She invites you into her mind which is a fascinating roller coaster or as she said herself “my brain is a wild jungle, full of scary jibberish. I'm writing a letter. I can't write a letter. Why can't I write a letter? I'm wearing a green dress. I wish I was wearing a blue dress.”
Find out who Graham met co-star Alexis Bledel in the lobby of a Canadian hotel. “We'd both been cast in the show without ever having met,” Graham writes. “...there'd been no time for anyone to even see us standing side by side, just to make sure we looked related... I was overwhelmed, but I could tell I liked her right away.”
She takes you into her world with an incredible sense of humor, original photos and excerpts from the diary Graham kept during the filming of the recent Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. In other words, apart from laughing, get ready to shed some tears.
