Rorys Bücherliste


Wie schon im ersten Artikel erwähnt, folgt hier für den Anfang eine Liste von Büchern, die Rory Gilmore, Hauptcharakter aus der Serie „Gilmore Girls“ liest oder worauf es Anspielungen gibt- oder was sie lesen würde. Nach einer langen Suche habe ich diese Liste aus verschiedenen Internetquellen zusammengestellt und bietet mir somit eine gute Orientierung.  Was ich gelesen habe, ist natürlich bereits verlinkt. Bisher ist das noch nicht sehr viel, bzw. ich habe es schon gelesen, aber noch nicht rezensiert. Mein Ziel ist es, alle Bücher von dieser Liste zu lesen.

  1. Wow, echt tolle Idee! Vor allem, weil ich ein riesiger Gilmore-Girls-Fan bin. 🙂
    Aber, meine Herren, ist die Liste lang.
    Ha, hier werde ich bestimmt nicht selten vorbeischauen und mir auch das ein oder andere herauspicken. Ein sehr ehrgeiziges Unternehmen, all die Bücher lesen zu wollen, aber auf jeden Fall nicht schlecht um die Literaturbildung voranzutreiben.

    • Freut mich, wenn du die eine oder andere Anregung findest! Bisher hat mich die Liste nur selten enttäuscht…
      Es wird auch bestimmt noch einige Zeit dauern, bis ich annähernd etwas geschafft habe, aber es macht viel Spaß! Einige Bücher hätte ich so nicht unbedingt gelesen, aber in diesem Kontext ist es gleich interessanter.
