If you’re anything like me (us? I can’t believe I don’t know this about you V!), you spent your Tuesdays watching the Gilmores navigate Stars Hollow, wishing you had a mom as cool as Lorelai and a bevy of attractive men at your disposal. Unfortunately for me (and I’m guessing probably you), the closest I’ve ever gotten to Rory’s life was consuming too much coffee and talking too fast. Until now.
A couple of years ago, I stumbled across this Buzzfeed article, which talks about a blog that not only read all of the books, but gave individual reviews on each work. I’m not interested in doing 339 book reports, but the goal is to read/re-read all of the books below before my 30th birthday.
Below is the books I’ve completed, and, if applicable, a to a link to a longer review. If you’re on Goodreads, you can come follow along!
