I have decided to finally take on The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.
I spent a good amount of my teenage years watching Gilmore Girls. I’m not sure what drew me into this show. It might have been their fast conversations, Lorelai and Rory’s relationship, the small town and the weirdness of it and it’s population. One thing is for sure though, I adored the fact that Rory reads. and I mean READ. She may not always be seen with a book in hand but the show made it clear how big of a reader she was.
And because I’m a big fan of the show, I’m here trying to see if I can read through the books mentioned / referenced / appeared on the show. It’s a hefty list but I also enjoy reading. Plus in this challenge I will make it easier for myself to keep me going:
- There will be no time limit. I can do this challenge in my lifetime; and
- If the story doesn’t catch my interest enough, there is no pressure in finishing it. Why? Because one person’s favourite will not always be another’s.
So there it is. Below is a list I found which has been referenced in the show. I will be marking those I have read as I finish them, and those which I have already read before I even started this challenge.
