Every Gilmore Girl fan can not live without a coffee mug from Luke’s Diner. I have one that I got for my birthday and I use it all the time! This is the one I have, it’s just from Amazon! But, Etsy does have colored ones and DIY’d ones.

I got the Stars Hollow Monthly Box from Lit Cube in October and it was the best subscription box I’ve gotten especially since it’s catered to Gilmore Girl’s fans. It comes with many items and it’s really worth it.

I was introduced to the Eat Like a Gilmore Unofficial Cookbook in my Stars Hollow Monthly Box, because I received three recipes from it! I made the Autumn Sangria recipe I received and it was amazing! This cookbook is based on food from the show, it’s perfect!

Gilmore Girls Funko Pop’s are finally here! This is perfect for any fan because they’ll have the Stars Hollow crew to collect!

5 Books to Read If You Like Gilmore Girls


Image result for gilmore girls

I recently posted a Gilmore Girls 2.0 Book Tag, and I was thinking of some books that are relatable to the show? It inspired this post, here are five books that you should read (if you haven’t) if you’re a fan of Gilmore Girls! Also, you should just read them anyway. I also posted a video on my channel with this topic and these books.


 

Image result for never have i ever katie heaney1. Never Have I Ever My Life (So Far) Without A Date by Katie Heaney –

This is a memoir by Katie Heaney about her love life starting all the way at preschool/kindergarten. In Gilmore Girls, Lorelai definitely gets her share of weird dates. Kirk, Rune…Katie and Lorelai could definitely relate to weird dates! Katie goes on a date with a guy who replaces “Buckets!” for curse words. It’s bad and hilarious.

 


Image result for amy and roger's epic detour cover2. Rory + Lorelai’s Road Trip  – Amy and Roger road trip from California to Connecticut (Stars Hollow is in CT!!) and take a detour on the way. They go into hotels with fake names, they get Dairy Queen and even go up to Roger’s college. Remember that episode when they go on a random road trip and go to Harvard? The Gilmore girls are roadtrippers!

Image result for the truth about jack jody gehrman3.  Coffee IN AN IV! – In The Truth about Jack by Jody Gehrman, Dakota stops by her favorite coffee shop daily. This automatically reminds me of GG because it’s a routine for Lorelai to stop at Luke’s for coffee! Dakota basically has her own Luke’s!! Click the title of the book to go to my review, it explains the whole summary of the book.

Image result for attachments rainbow rowell cover4. Lorelai’s Witty Sense of Humor – Attachments by Rainbow Rowell is the perfect book for a GG lover. The setting is an office of a newspaper so RORY and the two characters, Beth and Jennifer remind me so much of Lorelai in the humor sense and they are trying to get their lives on track!

5Image result for why we broke up. Breakups – Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler is about Min and Ed’s break-up and Min is putting all of Ed’s things in a box. This is so relatable to Rory’s breakup with Dean, especially that she puts a box together of Dean’s belongings or anything that reminds her of him.

Gilmore Girls Book Tag 2.0


anigif_enhanced-buzz-11302-1363391135-5

I recently filmed the Gilmore Girls Book Tag 2.0 and I loved every minute of it! If you didn’t know, I’m the biggest Gilmore Girls fan and I also created The Gilmore Girls Book Tag back in 2014 when it released on Netflix in the US.

Pink Lemonade Reads on Booktube created this tag and I hope you guys will share it! I did the tag on my Booktube channel but I released I didn’t do all of the questions? The footage must’ve gotten lost or something…Maybe I’ll film a part two. But for now here is the tag in written form!

I had so much fun filming and editing this video!! I love Gilmore Girls so much and this was a great tag. I’ll be doing my OG one closer to the revival date! *SPOILERS FOR GILMORE GIRLS* 


1. I JUST GOT HIT BY A DEER – character having the worst day ever 

I’m going with Hank from My Kind of Crazy by Robin Reul. Hank promposes to the girl of his dreams by writing the word P-R-O-M out in sparklers. This results in her house *almost* catching on fire. So, I guess we could say he had a pretty bad day.rory-deer-gilmore-girls-6515

2. STARS HOLLOW – wildly eccentric cast

I just recently read The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson and it has a vast cast of characters. Andie’s friend group is pretty large and I loved how they all had their own personality and felt like real characters rather than just side characters.Image result for tumblr stars hollow
3. COFFEE – a book you’re addicted to/a character w/ an addiction

In my video, I mentioned an author I’m addicted to and I chose Rainbow Rowell because I’m so addicted to her writing, I’d read anything by her!

4. SOMEONE DEVIL EGGED BY CAR?! – great act of revenge
Okay, can I just say I’ve ALWAYS wanted to devil egg someones car? Like, it’s on my bucket list. A book that features revenge is Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan  this book is about a prank war and a group of “The Breakfast Club” like teenagers who are trying to expose The Chaos Club at their school. So many pranks and much revenge!tumblr_nd3i3bu52t1qzcyzso8_1280
5. MR. MEDINA – an illicit affair

I really don’t have an answer for this! I don’t know that I’ve read any books featuring an affair. Image result for max medina gilmore girls
6. KIM’S ANTIQUES – a world you’d be afraid to enter

Dystopian is a genre I rarely read. But, I think the Divergent world is one I wouldn’t survive in. I’m totally in Amity but I just wouldn’t like to live in a world that Jeanine rules and the blood? no thank you!

7. HARVARD VS. YALE – character who needs to make a life-changing decision

In Landline by Rainbow Rowell, Georgie McCool makes a life-changing decision. She is able to call her husband Neal from 15 years in the past through her old rotary phone. She can either fix things or change them entirely.

8. LUKE’S DINER – a comfort read

In my video, I chose Anna and the French Kiss (collection) by Stephanie Perkins. Her characters and writing is so fluffy and just makes me feel comfy while I was reading!

Image result for lukes diner gif
9. AM I CRYING OR LAUGHING? – a book that messed with your emotions
A book that gave me all of the feels? BEEN HERE ALL ALONG by Sandy Hall. IT KILLED ME IN THE FEELS. AWH IT WAS SO CUTE.

Image result for mrs kim gilmore girls
10. EMILY – the HBIC (Head Bitch in Charge)

I can’t even think of a character that tops Emily Gilmore!

Image result for emily gilmore gif
11. LORELAI AND RORY – favorite family dynamic

My favorite family is the Spiers from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. This  is a family I would love to be in. I mentioned this in my Top 5 Wednesday Fictional Family post. They’re big fans of The Bachelorette and are just very accepting and fun!anigif_f13b0852ba95f07b029d7945b0fff937-24
12. I PUSHED HIM IN THE LAKE! – a book you’d throw in a lake

Okay, does anyone else just replay this scene over and over? It was hilarious!! I love Luke  and Jess’ relationship.  A book that I would throw in a lake is Elsewhere by Gabrielle Ziven. I don’t dislike books very much but this was one I really disliked. I just didn’t agree with the world and the character was very very annoying. anigif_enhanced-buzz-14033-1363392192-10
13. 1000 YELLOW DAISIES – favorite romance

So many romances to pick…I’m going to go with a recent romance from In Real Life by Jessica Love. Nick and Hannah were SOOOO cute! Despite Hannah running away from her problems…I really like how their story ended! Internet romance is adorable.

Image result for gilmore girls daisies gif
14. JESS – an unpopular opinion
I’m #TeamJess forever and I’m not ashamed! I love Jess and his character so much and his character development was so great. An unpopular book opinion of mine is The Haters by Jesse Andrews, it was definitely a disappointing read this year and I’m sad because I really wanted to like it and I was looking forward to it. The humor wasn’t for me and it wasn’t much of a road trip book like it was said to be.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-27252-1363387452-18
15. FIRST SNOW – snowy or holiday read

One of my favorite holiday reads is Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan! I read it just last December and I can’t wait for the sequel!Image result for snow gilmore gif
16. HEP ALIEN – book centered around music

Would it be wrong if I picked Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist? Well, I am. I just read it this summer via audiobook and I loved it! It’s so close to the movie it was like I was listening to the movie. Image result for hep alien gif
17. HE’D BETTER HAVE A MOTORCYCLE! – your book crush

Lately, I’ve been torn between the #1 book boyfriend spot. Levi from Fangirl and Peter K from TATBILB are fighting for the top. But, it’s been Peter K a lot recently. So..I’m not going to pick 😉

anigif_enhanced-buzz-12491-1363391526-1
18. IT’S REPETITIVE AND REDUNDANT – a book that could have been shorter

I read short books to begin with because Contemporary is usually short. But, I’m going to say The Selection Series for this. I really loved this series though I feel like the Elite wasn’t needed! It could’ve been a standalone or duo! Image result for gilmore girls repetitive and redundant
19. KIRK – the weirdest book you’ve ever read

A weird book I’ve read is From A Distant Star by Karen McQuestion. You can read my review, it’s a sci-fi contemporary book in my opinion. I enjoyed it however the story was definitely weird! Image result for gilmore girls kirk gif
20. IT’S A LIFESTYLE. IT’S A RELIGION – that one book that means more to you than any other. 

Did I really do a book tag if I didn’t fully mention To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han? This book means the world to me. It’s one of my favorites, I’ve read it 4x and I’m going to be a mess when the third book comes out. If you haven’t read it, I really suggest it.

So, there is the Gilmore Girls Book Tag 2.0! I loved these questions. Go watch my video and the OG video! I don’t know who all are Gilmore Girls fans so I tag everyone!!

Top Five Things I Hope to See in the Gilmore Girls Revival


Hey, everyone! You should know how much I am obsessed with the show, Gilmore Girls if you’ve followed my blog for the past year or so. As soon as it came to Netflix, I was there & binge-watched the whole show and became obsessed: I created a Book Tag, changed my Tumblr url, and started to become Rory/Lorelai Gilmore.

anigif_enhanced-buzz-31464-1363393562-4

 

Well, it has been officially confirmed that Netflix is bringing the Gilmore Girl fans a revival series! OHMYGOD All the feels!

tumblr_inline_mli6aa8J4K1ro3fyx

 

I’ve seen many posts/articles around the Internet with ‘what we hope to see’ in the revival series. So, I obviously had to jump aboard and share my own!


Here are the top 5 things I hope to see in the revival. Comment down below what you hope to see and your excitement about the news!

1. The Dragonfly Inn looking pretty AF and very successful. Really, just Lorelai super successful with her life’s plans. Add Sookie to this note, too b/c she’s part of the Dragonfly Inn. I know that Melissa McCarthy is really popular now and may not have time…but it’s not complete w/o her.sookie-gif

2. Richard Gilmore honored by the family, or just acknowledged for his greatness and gratitude. Possibly, Rory wrote a speech for him or something.. Yale honoring him? Many possibilities.

3.  LANE/HEP ALIEN- I really enjoy Lane and Rory’s friendship, we are left off with Lane married to Zack with twins and I did see that she’s going to be in the cast. So, initally I need HEP Alien to come back to Stars Hollow. gghephepalien

4.  JESS. – Ok, Jess was my favorite and I want to know what his character is up to. I hope he’s a famous author and married. He doesn’t have to be with Rory, but I hope that they are still good friends. tumblr_nu4a64TYyG1tan2s6o1_250

5.  Luke and Lorelai – I think this is an obvious one, we need closure!! or for them to just be together and a power couple. I did read that we should be getting Luke’s Diner, so I just hope they still have their amazing chemistry!! & coffee.

tumblr_mrztc0wrkK1r6wwb3o1_500


 

Basically, I’m really, really excited!! Gilmore Girls is something that is really special to me & the characters are close to my heart. Can’t wait to see what they do with this, I’ll definitely be posting episode recaps once it airs!!

ggchallenge

I found a 30-day challenge for Gilmore Girls on a Tumblr blog, tookieclothespins. I thought I would try it out on here for the month of June. There are prompts for each day to write about. Wish me luck and check back every day 🙂

Side note: OMG! I totally forgot that I was doing this. YouTube, Readathons & Life got in my way! Here’s the days I missed

Day 17. How long was your longest Gilmore Girls marathon?

My longest Gilmore Girls marathon was probably about one whole day, but I think of re-watching as a marathon kinda..

Day 18. What is something that will always remind you of the Gilmore Girls?

Poptarts or snow/Winter.

Day 19. What is the first line that comes to your mind right now?

“I need coffee in an IV” – Lorelai

I’m not an active participant with fandoms besides Gilmore Girls and Nerdfighteria and Hockey.

Day 16. What do you think Rory is doing right now?

Gilmore-girls-season-3-16  gilmore-girls57

Hm…This is a good question. 15 years later.. I think she’s a successful journalist for the NY Times and living in New York with Jess or maybe a guy she met during Obama’s tour (her husband). She’s pregnant with her first child, a girl. She’s still always in touch with Lorelai, Christopher and Emily. She’s taken on Lorelai’s habits such as drinking coffee 24/7, having movie marathons and eating out. OR SHE WROTE A BOOK. Rory Gilmore: A Memoir AHHH that would be amazing. Rory sees Lane; they set a day out of each month to take time to see each other. So many things that could’ve happened to Rory, all good things.

This should be a difficult question because who isn’t torn between Dean and Jess? I loved them both. But… I’m going with Jess. I just love him! I was watching The Bracebridge Dinner episode today and Jess is just so cute and nice when he’s with Rory. He’s honest and fixed on her at all times. We really get to see who Jess really is when he’s with her. I believe she really changed him. And (SPOILERS) He comes back to Rory at the end to show her all he’s accomplished since their teenage years all because of her. I’m a total Rory & Jess fan.
