Happy New Year Everyone.
I’m a bit late but you know what they say, better late than never, right?
I’ve kinda neglected my blog last year, for no particular reason at all. Maybe just laziness, I guess. But, I’m back and I’ve decided to fully commit to my blog this year.
I’ve recently finished watching Gilmore Girls and I loved it, #teamlogan. The characters are really funny and easy to relate to. For those who don’t know what Gilmore Girls is, it’s a tv show about a young, single mother Lorelai Gilmore and her teenage daughter Rory Gilmore. They live in a small town in Connecticut called Stars Hallow. The show highlights their lives and the lives of those closest to them over seven seasons. (In 2016, four new episodes of the show was released on Netflix including the highly anticipated “final four words” of the show.)
Over the course of the seven seasons, Rory reads an insane amount of books ranging from romance novels to thrillers, literature and autobiographies. The books she read all played a role in helping to shape her into the woman she later becomes.
“I live in two worlds, one is a world of books. I’ve been a resident of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County, hunted the white whale aboard the Pequot, fought alongside Napoleon, sailed a raft with Huck and Jim, committed absurdities with Ignatius J. Reily, rode a sad train with Anna Karenina and strolled down Swann’s Way. It’s a rewarding world.” – Rory Gilmore
In 2013, an Australian writer, Patrick Lenton complied a list of every book mentioned and referenced in Gilmore Girls to complete a challenge known as the “Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge”.
So, in honor of finally finishing the series, I’ve decided to challenge myself and try to read all 339 books by the end of this year. Some books I’ve already read. Yay! Others, I’ve never heard of and some I’m completely terrified of reading.
I thought I’d start off by reading Pride and the Prejudice by Jane Austen. Something sweet, something light.
I’m really looking forward to this challenge.
Wish me luck.
