The Rory Gilmore Reading List

Hello everyone! I’m back from my tiny vacation, refreshed and rearing to go! Just kidding… I’m actually exhausted and sad, but who isn’t! xD

This list has been making its rounds on the social media for a while and I’m inspired to look through the list and tell you which of them I’ve read.

This post is inspired by Ashley Riordan’s video on her youtube channel, climbthestacks. She’s one of my favourite youtubers, and I adore her videos. Here’s a link to her video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bK_3aT2RS9c

Here’s the link with the complete list of all of the books referenced on the Gilmore Girls, a show that I’m currently following a rerun of on TV for the first time, even though I’ve seen random episodes of it before. Yes. This is my first time watching the show. No judgment, please. 😛 I realllly love it so far. Which is why this is a topical post for me. Bear with me. 😛 http://www.buzzfeed.com/krystieyandoli/all-339-books-referenced-in-gilmore-girls#.xwBqZ6xa1
