Since the new episodes of Gilmore Girls came out today and because I am a huge fan, I decided to do the Gilmore Girls Book Tag that is usually done on YouTube!
Lorelai – A character with a witty or sarcastic sense of humor:
For this question I am going to pick Percy Jackson from the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan because Percy Jackson is the king of sass and sarcasm. He is very witty and humorous throughout the novel, especially to people he shouldn’t be, and is just a great character to follow throughout the books like Lorelai is in Gilmore Girls.
Rory – Favourite classic:
I don’t read many classics but I have started Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen and really am enjoying it so I will go with that! Despite not having completed the book, I have seen several different adaptations of the novel and liked all of them.
Luke – A book you secretly love, but are afraid to admit:
I am not really afraid to admit my love for a book but there is a genre that I sometimes feel embarrassed at how much I love and that is contemporary. Not just like any contemporary books though, I love the cheesy and cliché ones just because I find them adorable. I read so many of them, probably more than the average person honestly and cannot get enough no matter how similar their plots all are…
Lane – A musical character:
There are quite a few musical characters but I am going to have to go with Simon Lewis from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare because Simon is awesome. In the series, he plays in a band that can never decide on a name and I just love how Cassandra Clare always manages to keep talking about the band despite all the crazy stuff going on in their world.
Dean – Your first book love (a character or book you first loved):
My first chapter book series I fell in love with was Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan but before that I was obsessed with the Geronimo Stilton books so that will be my answer. I read Geronimo Stilton for about 2 years before moving onto more challenging books but I absolutely loved reading all of them. I wasn’t a huge reader when I read these but these were the only books someone could get me to read.
Sookie – A book you’ve devoured:
I have devoured many, many books in one sitting or one day but one that always comes to mind when I think of this is Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. When I got this book in the mail last October, I sat down and just read for hours and hours because I couldn’t get enough. Eleanor and Park is honestly a fantastic book that I think everyone should read and can read in one sitting.
Jess – A book you love that gets the most hate:
People don’t hate on these books but a lot of people have issues with this whole series but honestly, I love every single book in it and that is The Selection by Kiera Cass. I do see the flaws in these books but I don’t even care because I love the characters and the whole idea of these books so much.
Miss Patty – A book that was ruined by the hype:
This is a no brainer for me and that is Passengers by Alexandra Bracken. I bought this book just after it came out because I heard great things from everyone on social media. All the buzz about this book heightened my expectations but when I read it I could barley get through the first 200 pages. I will try to finish it one day but for now, the hype has ruined it for me.
Emily Gilmore – An expensive book:
Hands down Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the most expensive book on my shelf. I got it as a birthday present but it was almost $30 which is absolutely crazy. Especially after hearing all the mixed reviews I can’t believe it is that much. I haven’t gotten to it yet but in February I should start it.
Paris – An uptight character.
Katniss has a pretty good reason to be uptight, but she still is a hard person to like. She is a very protective person and will do anything for her sister and everyone else she loves, but that also leads her to not being a super fun and easy person to be around.
Those are my answers of the Gilmore Girls Book Tag and definitely comment if you too are obsessed with Gilmore Girls and are excited for the new episodes!
