Gilmore Girls Book Tag!

Greetings Earthlings! Today I’m doing a very interesting and hopefully book tag which is the Gilmore Girls book tag! If you don’t know what Gilmore Girls is, it is a show about a mother and daughter and it is my favorite show and the revival came out and I have a review for that here. I’m rewatching the show and I really want to this tag because it sounds so much fun!

Let’s began!


Lorelai

rehost-2016-9-13-6da59c90-10a5-4a3f-b5ea-586aae88a9b5.png

A character with a witty or sarcastic sense of humor

Lorelai is my favorite character on this show, she is the heart of the show and the woman I want to be. I love characters that are sarcastic because I’m sarcastic as hell so I have a lot of characters to chose from but I think I’ll go with Mat Cauthon from the Wheel of Time series.

Avendesora

If you don’t know what the Wheel of Time series is, it is a cool fantasy series that I love. I have a review for the series here and a post on why you should read the series here. Mat is my favorite character in the series and I love him. He is so funny and he is always making jokes and being a great character. Like during that last book everything is so emotional and he is just there being Mat and I loved it so much!


Rory

Your favorite classic book

Oh Rory look how young you are. I miss young Rory. She is so innocent and lovely, I mean I love her later on but not as much as I loved her in the earlier season. I don’t read a lot of classics but I’ve been trying to read more this year and I’ve been doing a pretty good job with that. But my favorite classic is To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee.

2657

This book is amazing and I loved it. It is so inspirational and I love it and everyone should read it and lets just pretend that the sequel didn’t happen because I don’t want to believe any of that would ever be possible. No spoilers though.


Luke

rehost-2016-9-13-7cbaff3c-4969-4466-815e-473da34dda4b.jpg

A book you secretly love, but are afraid to admit

I love Luke and I love him with Lorelai. He is my favorite! A book that I love and that I’m afraid to admit is any romance book out there in the world because most of them are so bad and have like unhealthy relationships. If I had to pick one, I would pick Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.

twilight-meyer

I guess my feelings for Twilight aren’t hidden as I have a fanfiction called Skyfall. I still like it though, I just don’t want to talk about it a lot because again the relationship isn’t the healthy for this book but I just like books are easy to read.


Lane

rehost-2016-9-13-4d05ad22-1a78-4f7a-91ad-668a9056c2cd.png

A Musical Character

Lane was a great friend to Rory and even though I’m probably the only one but I loved her and Zach together. I mean I did love her and Dave but he left so I couldn’t love them a lot. There aren’t a lot of characters that do music that I recall at the moment but I’m just going to go with my favorite shadow hunter Jem Carstairs!

CJ_Flowers,_Jem

 My violin playing angel! I love you so much Jem. You are my angel. If you guys haven’t read the Infernal Devices, you totally should because it’s amazing! Jem is my husband next to Will of course. I have a review of this series here. Go read this book and if you have then what do you think of Jem!


Sooki

rehost-2016-11-25-f90229e0-3c33-49c0-bbb1-007999cb7ab0.jpg

A book you’ve devoured

Sooki is such a great friend to Lorelai and she and Jackson are so cute! Melissa McCarthy did such a good job playing this character. Oh where do I began! I’ve read so many books that I’ve devoured I don’t even know where to start! Let’s go with much recently so you probably know what book it’s going to be. It’s Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare!

los_cover

I don’t know when this is coming out but I do have a review for it, I just don’t know if it’s out right now or not. Whatever so if it is then just go to categories and go to Mortal Instruments part. Or just go to recent posts. Back to the point, there is only one word of this book and it is SHOOK!!! I had so much fun reading this book when it wasn’t making me cry for all my feelings!


Dean

Your first book love

Oh Dean. Your character was destroyed and it shouldn’t have. But how about that young Jared Padalecki? Isn’t he cute? And if you are like me and you watched Supernatural before watching Gilmore Girls and you didn’t freak out when you saw him and laughed your ass off when you found out his name was DEAN!!!! Okay back to the question, I want to go with Harry Potter but it wasn’t my first love, it’s just my longest love. So I’m going to go with the 39 Clues by a lot of authors.

kr_kidsread_042011_39clues_header

I have a whole post talking about how young gigi was hella in love with these books and she still holds a torch for them which you can read here. They used to be really be like these intense books for me but now I just find them fun which should just matter.


Jess

rehost-2016-9-13-b29cbb81-209b-4ceb-aa9a-3e744d36beb2.jpg

A book that you love, that gets the most hate

This asshole. I don’t care if you like, this is my opinion. He treated Rory badly, he treated Lorelai badly, and he treated Luke, the guy that saw the best in him when no one else did, badly. I don’t like that trope where girls fall for guys that complete assholes. A book that I love that gets the most hate is probably any fantasy book because with fantasy it’s either you like them or you hate them there is no in between. For this I’m going with The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.

7898755_orig

*i really love these version of the covers

I have a review for every single one of these books and again if you want to read them then again go back to The Mortal Instruments category and just go from. This is a series that doesn’t really get great until book three which I was willing to push through all of it but a lot of people aren’t which I think is a mistake! Just push through! Do it! And if you can’t get through Mortal Instruments then I would move to the Infernal Devices it seems like a better move.


Miss Patty

A book that was ruined by the hype

I don’t know why this was her question. But a lot of books I read are over hyped, I don’t know how it keeps happening but it does. You probably know what book I’m going to pick but here it is, I’m picking Divergent by Veronica Roth.

Divergent_(book)_by_Veronica_Roth_US_Hardcover_2011

I have a review for this book here that should explain how I feel about this book. I’m like so done explaining why I don’t like it. Just go read the review.


Emily

rehost-2016-9-13-b38abf63-c594-4ecb-ab2f-b69ed42ab4fb.jpg

An expensive book

Emily is great character and sometimes she can be unfair and sometimes she can be treated unfairly but she does love her family. I don’t spend a lot of money on books because I normally don’t have any money to spend on expensive books. But here an expensive book that I brought I mean I got it for less than the original price and it was a present but it still a lot. That book was the Wheel of Time Companion by Robert Jordan and a lot of people.

51zRGrAxrZL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

It was 26 dollars which isn’t a lot and I got it on Kindle but the hardcover is forty bucks so that’s why it took me forever to buy. I stilled loved this book though it was a lot of fun.


Paris

rehost-2016-9-13-13b5d775-c2fd-4e79-8427-6b620d0cbf99.jpg

An Uptight Character

I love Paris so much. She was amazing and she can be a little crazy at times but I have so much fun watching her go through life with Rory and Doyle. So an uptight character I’m going to pick is a character that has grown a lot since the first book but he was really uptight when we first met him. If you haven’t guessed it my boo Alec Lightwood from the Mortal Instruments.

CJ_Flowers,_Alec.jpg

Like I said he has grown a lot since City of Bones and has become a master of sass and I love him and I love Malec and I love the fact he has kids now but in the beginning of the Mortal Instruments he was so uptight and rule crazy. I still loved him then but not as much as I did now.


That is it for the Gilmore Girls book tag! I had fun doing this and I can’t help but wonder why there isn’t a Richard or Logan or Mrs. Kim question. I tag you all to do this tag and I hope that you have fun doing it. It summer so I’m hopefully going to get a lot of reading done and then I’ll do my summer reads list like I did last year. I post review, rants, and other stuff one this blog once every weeks. Like, Comment, and follow for more rants like these!

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life Review

Greetings everyone! Today I’m discussing the Gilmore Girls Revival!

WARNING SPOILERS


I’m a giant Gilmore Girls fan. I haven’t talked about on this blog but if you follow me on Instagram or Tumblr or just live with me or know me as a person then you know that I love Gilmore Girls. I meant to put this on my favorites list last year but it was a very long post and I hadn’t really loved the last season. I did want to do a review of the original before this came out but that didn’t happen so hopefully I can do that after I post this.

If you don’t know Gilmore Girls was a show that came on in 2000 and it was about a mother named Lorelai and her teenage daughter named Rory and their lives and it’s such a great show! It has seven seasons which are all on Netflix so go watch it! There are so many stars that have like guest starred like Ron Swanson and Aaron Burr. The show end in 2007 and it was cancel because like a said season seven wasn’t the best. This show is really great and so people loved it.

About last year it was announced that Gilmore Girls was coming back for four movie long episodes on Netflix!!!

Rating: -A: Good book with characters that got better and a slow plot line

I was so excited for this and I knew that I had to keep my expectations low but I couldn’t help. More of the cast keep confirming that they were coming back and it just made so happy. Even the original writer of the show who left the show around season six said that she was coming back. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life just air couple days ago and I had family over the day it premiered so I had to stay off the internet all day to avoid spoilers. It was hard but I did it and now we are going to talk about it.

The minute the first episode it started and they started like over voices from moments in the original show, I was about to cry. It was just like taking me back and I loved it. The beginning takes us through Stars Hollow and then we are reunited with our girls. I’ve talked about how the last seasons weren’t great and that was because the writer left the show. She and her husband came back and wrote these episodes and that spark that was from the earlier seasons was back and it made me soo happy. The quick fast pace talking is back and it is so funny!

Like when they are reunited at the beginning of Winter, the first time Lorelei sees Rory she is just like ‘that what you look like getting off a plane?’ and it was just a great start. Rory sort of has this boyfriend that she keeps forgetting about and that she needs to break up with him and it’s an on going joke through out the episodes until in Fall she gets a text from him saying that they should break up and it was great.

Gilmore Girls is a funny show but it still has it’s sad and angsty moments. One of things that I expected was Richard’s death. If you didn’t know, Edward Herrmann who played Richard Gilmore died at like the end of 2014 and they wrote his death into the show. I knew that characters who be going through this and it was going to be a hard time for all of them. I also knew that there would be other things that the characters would go through  which was showed in the trailer. All three girls are going through things and I was a little scared that it was only going to sad and angsty moments with a couple jokes here and there but it wasn’t.

My favorite episode was Fall. Oh my god, I cried so hard in this episode. It was when everyone that hadn’t showed up finally showed up. Lorelai decided that she wanted to do a Wild to think about everything in her life and instead she didn’t do that but she did get thinking and she called Emily and told her about her favorite moment with her dad and it was so sweet.Then she went home and told Luke that she wanted them to get married and they did and I was crying again. It was soo sweet and I loved it. Emily quits the DAR which was such and great scene. When I saw her sitting there, I was just like we are going to get one of those great quitting scenes and we did and I loved it! Rory started writing a book about their lives in Summer and her and Lorelai got into a fight about it but then Rory went and wrote the first three chapters in Richard’s office and we get the scene for her recalling moments that happened in there and man it hit me hard in the feels. Lorelei tells Rory to continue writing the book and that she should call it Gilmore Girls.

We also got a return of Colin, Robert, and Finn which was great because when they were saying goodbye to Rory it was like they were trying to something like the Wizard of Oz.

My second favorite is Winter, then Spring, and then my least favorite was Summer. Summer started out great then we have a whole thirty minutes wasted by the Star Hollow musical. It is just random and not need. At first I thought that it was funny but then it kept going on and on and I was so over it. April came back in this episode and there was this funny scene with her. We also had Rory and Lorelai having these boys need Braydon and Dewie following them around and then Rory took over the Stars Hollow Gazette and she, Lorelai, and Dewie ran around town trying to get the papers out.

Paris was in two episode which I loved. She was doctor that Lorelai and Luke went to see in the beginning and then was so funny. Her and Rory go to Clinton reunion and they see fake Triston because Chad Michael Murray decide that he didn’t want to come back even though he has nothing else going on. Lane and the rest of the band came back and we see Lane and Zach’s kids for like two seconds which I was disappointed about. Kirk and LuLu were back and still together and Kirk did another short film which was so funny and he started a business called ooober which he then had close because Uber’s  lawyers started contacting him. We met Lane’s dad! Finally! For about three seconds. Sookie comes in the last episode which was great and she makes about fifty different wedding cakes for Lorelai and Luke.

There were somethings that I wanted and that was Rory to become a teacher which didn’t happen, for Lorelei and Luke to get married which did happened, and for Rory to end up with Jess which didn’t happen. I’ll admit at first I wasn’t a Jess fan but over time I did grow to love him and I knew that in the end, they would have been perfect for each other. I loved Dean in the beginning because I love Jared Padalecki and one of the appearances that I was waiting for was for him to appear. Logan was my favorite for along time but then I sort of didn’t want them together.

Logan and Rory in the revival weren’t together but they were sleeping together and he was engaged to some french chick. Thing was that they clearly wanted to be with each other but they didn’t say anything. When they were in that room together at the club where he gave her a key to start writing her book, they so wanted one of them to just say hey I still in love with you and I just wanted to be with. That didn’t happen though he still was engaged and she still was alone! If only I had one more episode or at least a couple more minutes for Logan to find out and do something about the fact that Rory is pregnant with his child!

Okay, I waited a thousand and 252 words to drop that bomb. The last four words are ‘Mom?’ ‘Yeah’ ‘I’m pregnant’ and then CREDITS START ROLLING AND MY FAMILY AND I JUST START SCREAMING! Those were the four last words that have planned since the beginning of the first show and when the revival was picked up we were promised that hear those four last words. I couldn’t wait to find out what they were. I stayed off the internet all day to wait for those words. i was soooooooooooo shocked when it happened. Seriously!! How could that be the ending? I need a Year in the Life Part 2! Do I have to wait another nine years to find out what happened.

I loved this revival! It was so great and I need it back already! Did you guys watched A Year in the Life? If you did then what did you think? If you didn’t then go and watch it! IF you haven’t seen the original show then go watch that first then go back and watch a Year in the Life. I hope you enjoyed this review because it’s like my longest one and are following my book club here and other social media links.
