A genre that I’ve recently grown to love and look for is the “successful and funny women writing about their successful and funny lives” genre. I enjoyed reading the tales of Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling but nothing filled my heart quite like the witty and relatable stories of Lauren Graham in Talking as Fast as I Can, which I’ve admittedly read more than once. From her beginnings as a DC local, to her college years on stage and her performances as the endearing Lorelei Gilmore and the rebellious Sarah Braverman, Graham opens the door to her life in a way that will make fans love her more than they already do. But back off she’s mine, okay?

I often get asked why I run. Why do I get up before the sun to log tens of miles, endure blisters, and over pay to sweat alongside strangers for several hours? Sure, the medal is nice and I love a good t-shirt but I had difficulty pinpointing why I love running until I read this relatable and entertaining memoir. To any woman who has ever run a race, wanted to run a race, or failed at running a race: you have to read this book! Heminsly is inspiring, motivating, and the ultimate reminder that none of us really know what we’re doing out there.
