Gilmore Girls is one of my all time favorite shows. I remember meeting up with friends in high school to watch the new episodes each week. So, in honor of the new mini series Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, I thought I would do the Gilmore Girls Book Tag. Basically, there is a list of characters, and you have to pick a character or book that matches the personality of the Gilmore Girls character.
The original tag video can be viewed here.
Lorelai: A character with a witty or sarcastic sense of humor
Rose Hathaway from the Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
Rose is such a strong, sassy character who always seems to have a comeback at the ready. Plus, like Lorelai she likes to solve her own problems and is fiercely loyal.
Rory: Your favorite classic
Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
There is just so much to love in this book: strong female characters, a swoon-worthy romance, and loads of witty banter. Both Rory and Lizzie are independent and share a love of books.
Luke: A book you secretly love, but are afraid to admit
The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
I’m not afraid to admit I love these books, but I would be hesitant to read these books in public because the covers are terrible. I will never understand why publishers insist on putting peoples faces on the covers of books.
Lane: A musical character
Lily from P.S. I like you by Kasie West
I love Lily and her crazy family. Lily plays the guitar and writes her own music. She’s also super sarcastic which I love.
Dean: Your first book love
Jacob from the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer
At the time I read Twilight (before I realized how problematic the romance was) I loved Jacob. I never could understand why Bella would choose Edward over him.
Sookie: A book you’ve devoured
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
The mixed media format of this book and the compelling plot and lovable characters made this book so easy to read. This book was so fantastic that I actually stayed up until 2 am just to finish it.
Jess: A book you love that gets the most hate
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas
I know that there are issues with the book – from the romance to the representation, but I genuinely love this book. I love Feyre as a main character, I love the world of Prythian.
*I also admit that A Court of Mist and Fury is much better than A Court of Thorns and Roses – and seeks to correct many of the issues from the first book.
Miss Patty: A book that was ruined by the hype
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
It wasn’t ruined by the hype, but I almost didn’t stick with it because people seemed to love it so much and I DNF’d it on my first attempt. Luckily about a year later I gave it another go and basically devoured the whole series.
Emily Gilmore: An expensive book
I will admit that I don’t really own any expensive books. But, I would love to have the complete set of the new hardcovers Harry Potter books – the covers are beautiful!
Paris: An uptight character
Hermione Granger from the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
Now, I don’t see being “uptight” as a bad thing. She’s a great student and a great friend, but she can be a bit overbearing (i.e. the Firebolt incident or making up study schedules for Ron and Harry.)
