My Rory Gilmore Reading List challenge

My Rory Gilmore Reading List challenge

Hi everyone!,

So at the beginning of the year, I was thinking of reading books on the Rory Gilmore reading list. Now we are one and a half month further in 2021, and I did forget about the list. This morning I came up with it again, and I thought while we are still at the beginning of the year why not look if I have maybe read some books (this year) already and check them off and which ones are high on my to be read list.

Can a manage to read them all this year? Definitely not! That is for sure. However, I think it is quite a challenge to set for myself, and in January of the new year, I can check with myself how many books did an actually read of that list. 

Here are some books on the list I have already read. Ps: Do you like to set this challenge for yourself as well. Here I have the link to the website.

To kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
1984 by George Orwell

So this short like real shortlist shocked me. I thought I did have read more of these books on the list. I saw some books which are already on my shelf but still haven’t read and books that I do want to read so badly but didn’t read yet.

Here I have another list with books that are top on my priority of the to be read list of the Rory Gilmore reading list.  

Carrie by Stephan King
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
The Collected Tales and Poems by Edgar Allan Poe
Complete Stories by Dorothy Parker
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Cujo by Stephan King
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Demons by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Eloise by Kay Thompson
Emma by Jane Austen
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Little Woman by Louisa May Alcott
Moby Dick by Herman Melville
Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte 

This is as you can see quite a list… I hope I can manage to read at least all of those this year. However, this will be quite a hard challenge, haha. I wonder next year when I reread this post what I did read and my opinion about them.

Are some of these books on your tbr as well? Let me know by leaving a reaction under this post or contact me on Instagram.

Lots of love
