Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge || Update #2

2018-02-14 17.11.08

Since my last and first update on my progress in the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge I have read another four books! Because there are 339 books in total on the list, I still have quite some left, but I still wanted to give you guys an update on how I’m faring when it comes to reading the books Rory Gilmore reads in the TV series Gilmore Girls. Fun fact: somehow I still haven’t watched all of the series … I’m not that good at watching series apparently! Without further ado, let’s get on with my progress!


Although I said in my last update that I wouldn’t repeat the list of books I had already read, I’m going to do that anyways. Watch out guys – we got a rebel over here!
