I know I should pick a book fandom for this post, but I had to write about Gilmore Girls. Hey, it's bookish.You should check out the Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge if you haven't already.

Rory and her books - there are 339 books mentioned during it's seven year run. Rory has a book with her all the time or talks about books often. I'm working on this list, slowly.
Pop Culture references - Lorelai and Rory use a LOT of pop culture references and it's amazing. So fun when they quote books and movies.
JESS! - I am completely Team Jess (especially after watching Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life). He's the bad boy and bookish. He challenges Rory and understands her.
Melissa McCarthy as Sookie - One of the best supporting characters. She's funny and kooky. I can't imagine anyone else playing Sookie.
Luke & Lorelai - I was always rooting for them to get together. The tension that was always there and frustration when one of them was dating someone - it took a long time for them to finally figure it out, but I think it was so worth it.
The Fast Talking - Lorelai and Rory and known for their fast talking. I read that their scripts were so much longer than a normal script for a show since they speak so fast, there's a lot more dialogue.
Stars Hollow - The folks from Stars Hollow are a quirky bunch. Kirk, Miss Patty, Taylor Doose. The kind of town where everyone knows everyone.
Michel - Oh how I adore Michel and his snarkiness! And his accent.
Emily Gilmore - Always loved Emily, but her character grows during Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. Poor misunderstood Emily.
Lorelai's Humour - It's perfectly hilarious, sometimes snarky, sometimes sassy.
I wish I had found it sooner than last year during my pregnancy, but I will definitely rewatch multiple times and share with my daughter once she's old enough.
