I've developed a bit of an obsession with the Gilmore Girls since I started watching the series on DVD a few months ago. I can't believe that I missed this show when it was on TV. I have to blame this obsession on Molly from My Cozy Book Nook after reading her post in December, it sparked my interest to start watching the Gilmore Girls. Well, I've gotten the first two seasons from the library and I am anxiously awaiting season three. Can I tell you how excited I am that I have 5 more seasons to watch?!
Gilmore Girls is about so much more than a mother and daughter although, they have a pretty amazing relationship. It's considered a comedy-drama and the writing is superb and the acting is outstanding. It's the story of a fictional, small town and the mother-daughter team of single mom Lorelai and her 16 year old daughter Rory. There is also a cast of quirky and colorful characters that add zest to the show.
Rory is a booklover and there is much focus on this throughout the first two seasons that I've seen. It's interesting to watch how her love of books affects her life and relationships. It's also fun to hear about all of the books she is reading and her book buying and collections. Here's a fun video about Rory Gilmore the bookworm:
There is also a Gilmore Girls reading challenge hosted by Lisa of Lit and Life . According to this list, Rory read over 175 books over the seven seasons of the show, including such books as The Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood to Atonement and Moby Dick. There are even Rory Gilmore book clubs on sites like Goodreads and Shelfari.
