Gilmore Girls Book Tag

Gilmore Girls Book Tag

So I found this tag a while ago and decided that I clearly need to do it, because I LOVE Gilmore Girls...but as usual, I've taken forever to do it. So here's my (very belated) post for the Gilmore Girls Book Tag! 

Just Got Hit By a Deer - character having the worst day ever

The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)Catching Fire (The Hunger Games, #2)Mockingjay (The Hunger Games, #3)

Katniss Everdeen has the WORST days. Like, this entire series is just a whole long string of terrible days for Katniss. 

Stars Hollow - wildly eccentric cast

The Initiation / The Captive Part I (The Secret Circle, #1-2)The Captive Part II / The Power (The Secret Circle, #2-3)

These books are full of amazing characters. They're nice, they're smart, they're good and bad, they're funny, they're complicated, and they all have some of the best friendships...yeah, this cast. (And THESE BOOKS. If you haven't read them, you should!)

Coffee - a book you're addicted to / a character with an addiction

Obsidian (Lux, #1)Onyx (Lux, #2)Opal (Lux, #3)

This entire series will always be my addiction. ALWAYS.

Someone Devil-Egged My Car?! - great act of revenge

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

I refuse to spoil anything, so I'll just say......Crooked Kingdom........ (read these books, y'all!)

Mr. Medina - an illicit affair

To Professor, with Love (Forbidden Men, #2)

The entire Forbidden Men series is absolute gold (especially book 5, A Perfect Ten!), but this was the first one that popped into my head for this question.

Kim's Antique's - a world you'd be afraid to enter

The Darkest Minds (The Darkest Minds, #1)Never Fade (The Darkest Minds, #2)

Don't get me wrong, it'd be amazing to be in the same world breathing the same air as Liam...but let's be real, I'd never make it. Super cool powers or no, I'd be a goner.

Harvard vs. Yale - character who needs to make a life-changing decision

Twilight (Twilight, #1)New Moon (Twilight, #2)Eclipse (Twilight, #3)Breaking Dawn (Twilight, #4)

Bella makes a few life-changing decisions actually. The biggest, of course, being to become a vampire. Because that's kind of a big deal.

Luke's Diner - a comfort read

Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain, #3)

There are several books I could have put here (Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, Scarlett Dawn's Forevermore series, and Significance by Shelly Crane being a few of them), but I'd say this has become my go-to comfort read. Like, I literally JUST finished a re-read of Lady Luck. Because I love it (and Ty and Lexie) so darn much. It makes my heart happy every time.

Am I Crying or Laughing? - a book that messed with your emotions

Made (Sempre, #0.4)

Just thinking about this book too hard tears me apart. I love it beyond words (like, possibly my favorite book ever kind of love), and always (always, always) cry whenever I re-read any of it. Even the happy parts. Because FEELS.

Emily - the HBIC (Head Bitch in Charge)

Night World, No. 3 (Night World, #7-9)

So the first character to come to mind for this was Faye from The Secret Circle, but I already used that series and I'm TRYING not to use any book twice (I'm like 100% sure I'm going to fail, though) so I thought harder and came up with Keller from Witchlight! She totally fits this. (And now I want to re-read this whole series and all of The Secret Circle!)

Lorelai and Rory - favorite family dynamic

A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses, #2)

The Inner Circle counts for this. IT DOES. And obviously they're the best.

I Pushed Him in the Lake! - a book you'd throw in a lake

Divergent (Divergent, #1)

Really, this entire series can get out of my face. 

1000 Yellow Daisies - favorite romance

THIS QUESTIONS IS IMPOSSIBLE. And makes me go back on my "not using a book more than once" thing. Because, um, Daemon & Katy. Ty & Lexie. Cath & Levi. Corrado & Celia. Kaz & Inej. Literally ALL OF THE ROMANCES I CANNOT CHOOSE.

Jess - an unpopular opinion

The Paper Swan

This book was super hyped up and basically everyone loved it...except for me. It was well written, but other than that the story and romance and everything else was so disappointing.

First Snow - snowy or holiday read

Hear the Wolves

Oh, look, snow! And the book takes place in a huge snow storm.

Hep Alien - book centered around music

Amy & Roger's Epic DetourMayhem (Mayhem, #1)

I couldn't choose. Amy & Roger has playlists scattered throughout (which I LOVE), plus they're roadtripping so music is important. And Mayhem features an entire band. So obviously music is big there. I really adore both of these books!

He'd Better Have a Motorcycle! - your book crush



...ahem. Um. Levi.

It's Repetitive and Redundant - a book that could have been shorter

New Moon (Twilight, #2)

I'm breaking my own rule again, but this was the only one I could think of. I'm a huge fan of big books, so I don't really nitpick. But this book was mostly boring. I spent the entire book just wanting Edward to come back and instead had to trudge through a bunch of blah. I liked the wolves, so those parts were okay, but anything with Bella alone or with her friends from school...nope.

Kirk - the weirdest book you've ever read

Cat's Cradle

I read this book for a class my senior year of high school and while I enjoyed it immensely, I've still got to admit that it's an odd one. Very, very odd. But also very, very entertaining.

It's a Lifestyle. It's a Religion. - that one book that means more to you than any other

The Initiation / The Captive Part I (The Secret Circle, #1-2)The Captive Part II / The Power (The Secret Circle, #2-3)FangirlMade (Sempre, #0.4)

Lady Luck (Colorado Mountain, #3)Opal (Lux, #3)Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)Violet Grenade

The idea of only picking one book as an answer to this is cute. HOW am I supposed to pick just one? So many books are important to me and mean the world to me. The Secret Circle, which played a huge part in my early ventures into YA and are books that I still re-read often. Fangirl which I just GET and connect with (and also, you know, Levi). Made that tears into my soul every single time I open it. Lady Luck, a book that never fails to warm my heart. Opal, which is my favorite in an entire series that played a HUGE part in getting me where I am today. Six of Crows, for which there are literally no words--like, I'm speechless. And Violet Grenade, the book that gives me chills and feelings and has a most special place in my heart forever. How do I choose between all that??? 

Answer: I don't. (And I didn't even list Twilight...I probably should have.)

So those are my answers! What do you think? How would you answer some of (or ALL of!) these questions?


  1. I love this! I have to try and do it.

  2. Cute post! I love the GG, but I'm just now starting season 4 (I'm a late bloomer lol).

  3. Love it! I Pushed Him in the Lake! - a book you'd throw in a lake: this one especially made me laugh! Totally agree :D

  4. I love this! Glimore Girls is one of my all time favorite shows and you highlighted some of my favorite reads. Love that Forevermore made your list.
