The Gilmore Girls Book Challenge on The Book Wench Blog

holidays-4

Hello friends and fellow bookworms!

In honor of the recent release of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life I have decided that I would like to take on a Gilmore Girls-themed book challenge next year.

For the challenge, I will be choosing books from a list featuring books referenced/read in the original series and the Netflix revival. I found the first list on Buzzfeed and only made one change to it (Oliver Twist was not on the list and I only just recently re-watched the episode where Rory and Jess make reference to it!). The second list I adapted from Bustle and made sure there were no repeats or non-specific references (like references to the author but not a particular book).

As someone who read a lot in college and high school and took multiple Honors/AP/Advanced level literature classes, I am a bit ashamed to say I have only read 49 books out of the 351 listed below. I marked the ones I have read with a strike. That leaves me with 302 more books to read!

While I will certainly not be able to read all 302 books next year (or even in the next five years without completely ignoring author requests, new releases, sleep, food, and life) I would like to complete a somewhat auspicious challenge.

I am going to mix this with the 2017 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge as well. Any books I read for the Gilmore Challenge will be applied to the Popsugar challenge where possible.

I’m only going to set a minimum goal of 12 books from the original series and 3 from the Netflix revival, but my hope is that I will read at least twice that number, especially since another challenge will be in play. The Gilmore Girls Book Challenge is for personal satisfaction and posterity and even if I only read the 15 I will be happy and will merely aim to do the challenge again in 2018.

If anyone would like to join me, I will be starting the first of the year and will keep the blog and my Instagram updated periodically with my progress! I haven’t yet chosen the books I want to start with, but I will be posting on January 1st and I will certainly have the books picked out by then. (If anyone has any recommendations on where I should start, let me know below!)

If you join in on your own blog, Instagram, or Twitter feel free to use the hashtag #thebookwenchgilmorebookchallenge

May the odds be ever in your favor!

Happy Reading!

      1. I don’t think that’s a good idea, I am trying to downsize my tbr instead of adding more books! I might read a few books of the list though, because they’re already on my tbr 🙂

  1. I’m very excited about this challenge! For quite some time, I’ve longed to become more cultured. With medical school, my time has been limited and I haven’t been able to read as much. But with a year off, I plan to read a lot more. I’ve read 31 books on this list and I am to read 24 other books on this list next year (two for every month). For some of the books, I listed how many pages it had in order to get me excited to knock it off the list (since my list of books to read is probably at a dozen and I’ll want to read those instead of a book from this list). But I shall conquer it! Thank you for posting this challenge and I can’t wait for us to share in our progress together. Only 84 pages!
