These past few months, I’ve spent my time binge-watching television, catching up on my favorite shows. I also started watching Gilmore Girls and am now watching the seventh season. Rory Gilmore is my spirit animal and Lorelei Gilmore is the woman I want to be when I grow up. Seriously, I adore these characters and the rest of the supporting cast. So when I saw that Bingeing On Books created a book tag based on the show, I just knew I had to give it a go!
Rory and Lorelei || a book with an awesome mother/daughter relationship
If I Stay has one of the mother/daughter relationships I really adore. I love how comfortable Mia is to open up to her mother. Although their dynamic is different considering Mia’s mom wasn’t a single mother like Lorelei, I think in the end what makes a mother/daughter relationship strong is communication and bond.
Rory || a favorite character who is a bookworm
Cath from Fangirl is one of my favorite book lover characters. So much like Cath, Rory is the kind of girl who would fantasize about being trapped in a library all night. Also, since Cath is in college like Rory in the second half of the show’s run, I think they’ll bond over their college reading lists and literature classes.
Paris || a character who is snarky and completely honest, almost to a fault
Kady from Illuminae knows how to snark in a way that Paris Geller would totally approve. If these two ever had to battle-snark, I’m pretty sure it would be a tie, not to mention a fun banter to listen on.
Lane || a book with an awesome best friend
Open Road Summer is all about awesome best friends. There are so many great friendship books that I could name but ORS has got to be my fave. Dee is definitely the Lane to Reagan’s Rory.
Sookie || a character who makes you laugh
Harriet Manners is a character who just makes me laugh with her cute quips. Geek Girl was such a hilarious book and a light-hearted read, much like Sookie!
Lorelai and Luke || a book about best friends who fall in love
I’m head over heels for books with best friend romances so I could go on and on. But on the top of my head, Aza and Jason from Magonia have such a sweet best friends falling in love story.
Jess || most swoon-worthy fictional boyfriend
First of all, I love Jess so much. Like to the moon and back. (I ship him and Rory forever. I’m holding my breath for them to have a second chance in the Gilmore Girls revival.) Anyway, as of the moment, Rhys from the A Court of Thorns and Roses series is my favorite swoony book boyfriend. Read my review for A Court of Mist and Fury to understand why.
Lorelai || a character who is super clever and quick witted
I wish I could name a cool mom character to personify Lorelai. But if we’re talking witty, my mind always goes to Maggie from The One Thing.
Logan || a bad boy that you can’t help but love
Josh from Under The Lights is a class-A jerk and a bad boy in every way. I don’t know why but despite his dirty mouth and womanizing, I absolutely can’t help but love his straightforward, no bullshit attitude. He’s definitely a lot more crass than Logan, but he’s rich and spoiled and naughty so they’re totally cut from the same cloth.
This is so creative and awesome, thanks for sharing this! Feeding my love for lit and Gilmore Girls <3
I kind of feel ashamed that I haven’t watched Gilmore Girls, except from a few episodes here and there. But even if it’s an old show, it’s definitely on my to-watch list! :) I remember reading If I Stay a while ago, and I loved the mother daughter relationship as well! I have Open Road Summer on my TBR, if I remember correctly, and I LOVE books with great friendships. Those are some of the BEST books. Can’t wait to read that one! :)
I so badly want to watch Gilmore Girls – it looks excellent! Harriet Manners is one of my favorite characters and If I Stay is one of my favorite books. :) A book I would recommend that has an excellent mother/daughter relationship is Radio Silence by Alice Oseman!
Jess and Rory forever! I can’t wait until the revival comes out.
I’m not a big TAG gal, but this one is adorable!! I could totally see Kady as a watered down version of Paris… at least in book 1. IDK what she’s going to be like going forward. And I’m just really glad Dean was left off this list :)
What a cool and fun tag! This made me add more books on my ever growing TBR pile. :D
OMG! Gilmore Girls! <3 #TeamJess all the waaaay.
I think it’s so funny that you said Rory is your spirit animal and Lorelai is who you want to be when you grow up, because I’m the opposite! I think Lorelai is my spirit animal and Rory is definitely who I want to be when I grow up. (although we both are aiming for those Gilmore Girl characteristics so either way, it sounds like we’re going to be pretty rad people one day lol) It’s mostly because my life closely resembles Rory these days, working as assistant editor at my school magazine and I want to get a job in the same field as her when i graduate next year. and Lorelai is just a boss and I love her quirky personality so much! I have that tendency to ramble like she does, so I’m not sure if that’s a bad thing or a good thing. LOL.
I have to say, after doing a bit of blog hopping today (and getting back into the blogging world after a few weeks off so I could focus on finals) this is one of the best posts I’ve read yet! I am a huge GG fan and I loved reading this post! Great job! and i totally agree with Cath and Rhys as Jess. I am still in a book hangover from finishing ACOMAF earlier this month!
Hope you have a great week!

This is such a fun post! Great to see Cath <3
I LOVE this!! I am so happy that you did it. I ship Jess so hard too. Seriously, I LOVE HIM! I want him and Rory together again. I also totally agree with you about Rhys. I recently read A Court of Mist and Fury. The chemistry between Rhys and Feyre was off the charts.
I love this tag! Gilmore Girls all the way. :)
I ADORE THIS POST. Hi! New reader and follower here.
I’m obsessed with the gilmore girls and I’m SO EXCITED for the Netflix revival. <3
Oh I adore this meme. I must give it a go soon. Bookmarked to fit in this summer. I cannot wait for the revival of the show and I agree that I hope Rory/Jess have a second chance! I just binge watched all of the seasons last year for the first time and cannot wait to do it again.
I have a feeling I’m going to have to really think about these before I choose my books. I agree with Cath from Fangirl (most of the books you’ve chosen, I’ve never read so cannot comment on them).
This seems like an interesting tag! I haven’t watched Gilmore Girls yet, but I might just give it a try. This post reminded me of the Gossip Girl Book Tag I invented together with Salve, Miel, and Kevin! I love doing tag posts like this and I hope to watch this series soon too! :)
