The Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge

En tant que fan de Gilmore Girls,  je me suis dit qu’il serait sympa de lire tous les romans que l’on a pu voir apparaître entre les mains de Rory Gilmore ! J’avais déjà l’intention de lire plus de classique, cette liste ne peut que correspondre à mes critères !

La liste est interminable, je compte me fixer comme objectif d’en choisir seulement un par mois, je trouve ça déjà pas mal étant donné que je varie beaucoup mes genres de lecture. Cela me prendra bien du temps mais je persévère !

Les romans sont classés par ordre alphabétique et non par ordre d’apparition dans la série. Les titres sont traduits en français lorsqu’il existe une  version traduite.

  1. Gilmore Girls est ma série préférée et Rory l’une des meilleures conseillères livresque je trouve 🙂 Quel dommage que beaucoup de ces titres ne soient disponibles qu’en anglais … En tout cas tu as de belles lectures devant toi ! Il faut s’inscrire quelque part pour participer à ce challenge ?

    Aimé par 1 personne

    • Wouhh je vois que tu t’es aventurée sur la page « challenge de la honte » celui où j’ai pu barré que 5 livres 😂 mais bon j’ai encore le temps !
      Tu as raison, à chaque fois je voyais Rory avec un livre, ça me donnait envie de lire !
      Et à ma connaissance, non il n’y a pas besoin d’inscriptions, j’ai vu des bloggeurs le faire à leur rythme. 🙂 Contente que ce challenge t’intéresse, si tu décides de te lancer, je me sentirai moins seule 🙂 en ce moment, je lis Orgueil et préjugés, je pourrai enfin dire que j’ai lu un classique de la littérature anglaise.
