Someday, Someday, Maybe by Lauren Graham

Look! Lorelai from Gilmore Girls wrote a novel! Okay, it's written by the actor who played Lorelai, but whatever. I will continue to refer to it as "that book by Lorelai."

Apparently, Lauren Graham used her own experiences trying to become an actress in New York as inspiration for this fun story. It's funny and fun and sweet and enjoyable. I liked it a lot.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

I loved this novel about an architect mother who goes missing. The story is told through emails, letters, notes, and journal-like entries compiled by her 15-year-old daughter. Sometimes it reminded me of Douglas Coupland's writing. Also, it made me think about going to Antarctica. Really good book!
