Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge

In honour of reviving Gilmore Girls, we decided to do Gilmore Girls reading challenge.
Books in this challenge are the ones that were mentioned throughout the entire series.
Of course, I won’t be able to read them all at once, so my plan is to read at least one per month and then we’ll see how it goes and how long we’ll participate.
Here, I will keep score on which books we’ve read and which are on our to be read list.
Books will also be mentioned in monthly wrap ups.
