For as long as I can remember Gilmore Girls has been my favorite television shows. If you’ve never seen it, you should. It’s full of clever, quick-witted characters that are incredibly dynamic and well discovered throughout the seven seasons. The show is about a single mother and her daughter who live in a small town. As with any depiction of small town life, there are a variety of interesting characters that are simultaneously lovable and despicable. I think my favorite part of the show though however is all the references to pop culture. There are so many references to literature in fact that someone put together a list of all the books ever mentioned on the show.
So far I’ve only managed to read 20 of the books from this list. A lot of them are books that were required reading for me in high school, like “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “Catcher in the Rye”, some were books that I sought out on my own such as: “Pride and Prejudice”, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”.
Has a show ever inspired you to read a certain book? What’s your favorite T.V show? How did it effect you and your outlook on life?
