Today I’m very excited to bring to you all a review for something that I am so happy to have received from Penguin Random House.
I was blessed enough to recieve a finished, hardback copy of this novel, and I am so thankful that I did.
Alright, I’m just going to jump right into this review, I’ll try to stay composed. Try.

In this expansion of the 2017 commencement speech she gave at her hometown Langley High, Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, reflects on growing up, pursuing your dreams, and living in the here and now. “Whatever path you choose, whatever career 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.” In her hilarious, relatable voice, Graham reminds us to be curious and compassionate, no matter where life takes us or what we’ve yet to achieve. Grounded and inspiring—and illustrated throughout with drawings by Graham herself—here is a comforting road map to a happy life.

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 a strong, independent woman, who didn’t always get it right, and that was ok.
She IS a strong, independent woman, who probably doesn’t always get it right, and that is also ok.
I am constantly in awe of everything that she does and puts out because it is always so true to her personality and it’s never something that feels faked or insincere.
Gilmore Girls was a show that I started watching after it had ended. I didn’t realize what I was missing out on until I began to watch it and love it, but now I’m just grateful I was able to do so when I did. Therefore when the revival season came out for Gilmore Girls I was thrilled to be able to visit that town, that I loved so much, once again.
Since then, I have both read and listened to Talking As Fast As I Can several times. I love the personality and honesty that bleeds through Lauren’s writing and I feel like she is, honestly, talking to me like I’m a friend. Like she cares and supports anything I do, without, obviously, knowing me.
This novel was no different. Lauren was concise in her writing and she managed, with humour and anecdotes, to portray the importance of remaining true to oneself and being your own biggest fan.
This novel, as short as it was, is one that I find to be so empowering and inspiring.
I will love Lauren Graham forever and always, and I think that if you were to read this as well as Talking As Fast As I Can, you will too.
Please read this, it will change your life and make you believe that you are The Best and The Most.
That concludes my review for In Conclusion, Don’t Worry About It by Lauren Graham (my queen).
