Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

Rory Gilmore Book Challenge

Always one for an insurmountable challenge, when I discovered the ‘Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge’, I knew I had to give it a shot. While I strongly believe that ‘Friends’ is the best TV show ever made, I am still partial to the fast-talking, coffee-drinking antics or Lorelai and Rory.

Throughout the seven series’ of the show, Rory was (according to some very dedicated internet fans) seen reading 339 books. The challenge is to read all of these books! Given that I’ve so far read a grand total of 15 of the books on the list, I’ve got a ways to go – so this is a long-term challenge. In fact, if it weren’t for the fact that many of the books were already on my Book Bucket List and I want to read them anyway, I probably wouldn’t even attempt it!

Below is a list of all of the books; I’ll update it as I make progress! Feel free to join in with me, I could use the moral support!

    I have thought about this one a few different times because I’m a Gilmore junkie and of course, LOVE books! I think I will keep a list and make it a long term goal…taking titles off the list to tag on my smaller challenges until I complete the whole thing.

      My thoughts exactly πŸ™‚ If I set out to specifically read all of these it would be a tad overwhelming! Much less intense to do it on the side. Good luck!

  • Christine Newhook

    That is a lot of books! daayum girl. Good luck!! I have read a few on the list and have added some of the others to my own to read list, not sure if I could aim for the whole thing though. You are dedicated πŸ™‚

    • Annabel Krantz

      Not so much dedicated as hopeful :p Lots of the books are ones I want to read anyway!

  • Alyson

    Agreed, Friends is the best show! I never got into Gilmore Girls but the ones I did watch, I enjoyed. What an impressive list of books. I’ll have to check it out closely for some inspiration:) Thanks for sharing!


    • Annabel Krantz

      Glad you’re a fellow ‘Friends’ lover! I’m just starting to watch the extended versions, I’m excited :p Happy to inspire some reading!

    AMAZING! I looove Gilmore Girls and would totally do this if I didn’t already have a mile long booklist to catch up on. Also, Vanity Fair just ain’t gonna happen. Tried and failed.

    • Annabel Krantz

      Ohhh really? Might leave it til the end then :p I’ll tick off the easiest ones first!

  • Mrs K

    This has to be the coolest challenge ever πŸ™‚

  • Becky Hicks

    This is such a good idea!

  • Morgan Casper

    I love this! Such a great post!

  • Regina Phalange :)

    very awesome πŸ™‚ I too am friends obsessed, but Gilmore Girls is still my favorite πŸ˜‰
    Rory’s kind of my role model (not weirdly so, but I try to be a bit more like her character) so this is a must for me! I’ve only read a few of these, so I think I’m going to make this list my long-term challenge! Thanks!
    Also, I just discovered your site… I love it! (I just started a book blog with my friend, but we are lacking inspiration- you look like you have tonnes!) Have a nice day! πŸ™‚
