Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge | TBR

Hi Readers!

I recently shared my intentions to attempt to read the Rory Gilmore Book List and I thought it would be fun to share some of the books I plan to read in the next couple months. As it’s spooky season I’m going to choose a few of the books that seem the more spooky/Autumnal, and I’m also going to include a couple of the books I plan on rereading…

And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie – A reread, but also not really as it’s been six years and I have no memory of reading this, other than I remember the ending. But I think it will be quite interesting reading this book and knowing who the killer is so I’m looking forward to that…

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote – This is one I’m particularly intrigued by. I’ll admit, me and true crime haven’t really gotten along in the past but I figure, if there’s any true crime I’m going to like, it’s going to be this one.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – Another reread, I’m planning on annotating this book this time around, which I’m also planning on doing with…

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen – …this one. I’m annotating all of the Austen books over the next few months and this will be my second. This is of course her satirical take on the gothic horror genre and it’s one of my personal favourites because the main character is an avid reader.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde – Oh, and I’m annotating this. I’ve already started and I’m loving it. I find I pay much closer attention to the writing when I annotate and the writing in this book particularly is spectacular.

A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf – I read all of the novels over the Summer, and now I’m moving on to her non-fiction, this of course being her most famous work. I did read this back in school, but I remember just being uninterested because it felt ‘outdated’ but now I’m obsessed with Woolf I’m going into it with a more open mind.

Wicked by Gregory McGuire – I mean, of course I have to read this in October. It’s a book about witches and magic, it couldn’t be more perfect. However I would also like to read the orignal The Wizard of Oz book first, which I’m thinking would be perfect for the dewey’s readathon happening later this month…

There are more books on the Rory Gilmore list I definitely see myself reading in Autumn, but I don’t think I’ll be getting to them this year as I’ve already got quite the long TBR, so I’ll save them for next year.

Thanks For Reading,
Jess X
