The Oy w/ the Reading Already Tag ft. Gilmore Girls

You know what you do when someone tags you in a (book) tag featuring the Gilmore Girls? You queue up the Pilot episode on Netflix a.s.a.p. to see what the hype is all about while answering the super cool, creative prompts created by Rhiana @ Marshmallow Harmonies.

*the chef, Sookie, stresses me out so muchhhh. watch your finggeerss

LUKE | a grumpy character

Ella Enchanted

Ella’s stepmother in Ella Enchanted is this conceited woman, always displeased with what’s going on around her. (and her daughters, yeah, not any better.) She’s happiest when money is involved, a.k.a. she is getting money. On the flip side, Ella’s cook appears grumpy to all who meet her—until you know her very well. Then you can see that Mandy (yes, the cook = Mandy!) just saves up her love for people who deserve it.


LORELAI | a fast-talking character

The Dead Queens Club

Cleves in The Dead Queens Club is the stream-of-conscious narrator I so love. She’s fast-talking with a bit of snark always on the tip of her tongue. Too bad I wasn’t a fan of so many other aspects in the book.


RORY | a book dragon (or) fellow book lover

Guile

Orphan Yonie can claim very little as her own in the world. But she protects her small collection of books with her life. In Guile, Yonie’s passion for literature encourages her to try to get an education. I. Love. Books. With. This. THEME!


SOOKIE | a character you’d love to have as a best friend

Fangirl

Reagan in Fangirl. I had my (tiny) issues with Reagan at the start. In the end, what I love so much about this girl is that she gives off so much positive energy to her friends. Even if someone is different from her—so what? Reagan will embrace you fully and get you off your butt if you’re down or kick butt of someone brought you down.


RICHARD | a book you go to for comfort 

Sati

I’ve re-read this book more than any other book in my life.


EMILY | a long term relationship

I’m trying, but YA KNOW I DON’T READ ROMANCE. Any books with romance that I have read = the couple just met.


LANE | a character who plays an instrument

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)

I heard from a reliable source that there is a piano in this book, played by a certain boy. But that is all I got I’m sorry. Unless an iPod is an instrument, in which case I have unlimited options from the amount of house parties these YA teens go to (w/ their own soundtracks playing).


MISS PATTY | a book you told all your friends about

Sky Without Stars (System Divine, #1)

I don’t think I can go on about Sky Without Stars enough. It’s not released yet (March 26 2019!!!) but. this book. is AMAZING. If you liked The Lunar Chronicles this is for you. If you like retellings, or scifi, or books about people who want to become more than what everything tells them they are. . .  this. is for. YOU. 


LIZ/TJ | a book that was a mess of emotions

Deposing Nathan

I’ve mentioned it once and I’ll mention it again. This book left me a quivering mess.


PARIS | an intense reading session + book read

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle

I had to get up for work at 6:30 am. and YET. I started this book the night before and refused to go to sleep until I finished because the plot twists and the intrigue and all the questions were too much. I finally finished past 3 AM with burning eyes and complete satisfaction.


👑 i tag everyone who has seen Gilmore Girls 👑

I removed one of the prompts, “MARTY/TRISTAN.” For that prompt, you need to pick your own character who would get along with either Marty, or Tristan. Since I haven’t watched the show … can’t exactly figure that one out!

“i’ve never met someone read so intensely in my life.” I think I’m going to like Rory.

  1. I hope you watch the show, I loved it. For me, an intense reading session was when I got Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in the mail on release day and pulled an all day/nighter reading it, I obviously took breaks to eat and stuff.

  2. I never watched Gilmore Girls, but this was such a fun tag! I love Ella Enchanted (the cook Mandy is spectacularly awesome and grumpy) and yoooo…I love Reagan from Fangirl; she was so hardcore and straight to the point lol. I’d definitely love to have her as a best friend!

      1. Exactly! I’ve seen people say they hated her from the get-go, but I’m like…she’s my favorite character right out of the gate. Haha I don’t know if we’re the weird ones for liking her or not!

  3. Let me tell you. I get the urge to watch Gilmore Girls whenever the fall rolls around bc it is such a fall show. (But I only like the first 4-5 seasons) It just goes way downhill after that.
    But anyways!
    Amazing answers, Sha!
    I see you throwing Sky without Stars in my face again and I shall get to it!!!
