I'm sure you all have heard of the Gilmore series. The main character, Rory, likes to read, like, a lot! She has mentioned 339 books in this series and a guy wrote down all those books so we can read them as well. I haven't watched the series (yet) but when I saw the list I got excited. There were sooooooooo many books I wanted to read anyways, so this is a great way to read all those books (ahum classics). I love lists.
Karina E mentioned this reading challenge and I got really excited. This is her video:
If you want to check out the list: click here. Those are all the books in alphabetical order. I'm sure I won't be able to read all the books in one year, but I want to read all those books in my life. I've read 10 books on that list already (before I even knew about the list):
- Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll
- The Diary of a Young Girl by Anna Frank (read in the original language aka Dutch)
- The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien (read in Dutch)
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
- Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
- Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
- The Return of the King (read in Dutch) by J.R.R. Tolkien
- Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
I'm currently reading Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, which would be book 11 when I finished it.
And these are the books I currently own that are on that list:
- Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
- Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
- Emma by Jane Austen
- Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
- Hamlet by William Shakespeare
- The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
- The Side of Paradise & The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
As you can see there are not only classics on that list, which is great. I really want more books (ofcourse, who doesn't) but I'm going to haul some of them in the future when I got them. Everytime I read of review a book on that list, I will mention this challenge. This would be a great way to read classics (for fun)!
Have you heard of the Rory Gilmore reading challenge?
