Gilmore Girls: Season 1

Books read, seen, and mentioned in season 1 of Gilmore Girls.

There are many movies referenced by the girls based on books, I will not be including these books since the reference is to the movie. ie Rosemary's Baby - this reference in episode 1 is to the movie - Ruth Gordon is an actress, Dean says "That's a great a movie".

There are also many mentions of certain authors without specific books mentioned, so I'd prefer not to include books by those authors - specific mentions only! :)

Click my name (Amanda) under people who voted at the bottom to see the episode number and context for each book.

There are some I've missed, like blurry titles of books on shelves, etc. If you know of any, send me a message and tell which episode and the title of the book, I'd love to put it on my list/spreadsheet!

Check out the books I own from this list! https://youtu.be/Yb1901noEvY

Thank you!

Julia Great Idea !!!!


message 4: by Selena (new)

Selena Thank you for including the context, I've been looking for a list that does so for ages!


message 5: by Jean (new)

Jean Thank you for making this list! I just started the show this month. :)


message 6: by Julia (new)

Julia Just found this list. I was rewatching the series for the third time and thought I should write down the books she mentions this time. But you were awesome enough to do this.

Thanks.


message 7: by Ariza (new)

Ariza Zubia So glad someone thought of this! Great job on the list.
But what about A Streetcar Named Desire? I recently started the show and remembered that it was referenced.

ooh, I probably wasn't familiar enough with it to catch the reference, or thought it referred to the movie since actresses are mentioned. But it works since it's mentioned a few times - I'll add it. Thanks!


message 9: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Thank you for all your wonderful (and hard) work on this, Amanda. Your categorization is much more thorough than most of the lists floating around.


message 10: by Crystal (new)

Crystal Tripp Thank you!


message 11: by Deborah (new)

Deborah I'm slowly making my way through this list maybe I'll be done by the end of the year? I've read a few of them on this list... and will NOT be reading the Oxford diccionary! hahaha, thanks for the liiiist!


message 12: by Geórgea (new)

Geórgea  Lins Silva Amanda, is "Pollyanna" in any of these lists? I looked for, but did not find it. It is also mentioned in the series, right?


message 13: by Kristin (new)

Kristin Kennedy Anyone know how to "like" this list so I can keep track of it?! :)

'Liking' this list is easy. There's a button for it at the bottom of the list, slighlty above the text "PEOPLE WHO VOTED ON THIS LIST". Keeping track of it can then be done by clicking on "Lists I've Liked" in the menu at the top right hand side (menu is visible at any list and also when you click 'browse' at the top of the page and and choose 'lists').


message 15: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady @Amanda
Are you sure about James Joyce's Ulysses by Stuart Gilbert ? Shouldn't it be Ulysses by James Joyce ?


message 16: by Alexa (new)

Alexa does anyone know what episode northanger abbey is from?

Sorry I didn't see your comment until just now! I don't recall Pollyanna being mentioned, but if you come across it in the show, let me know! I definitely could have missed it.

Sorry I didn't see your comment until now, the cover in that episode matches the cover of the book by Stuart Gilbert, so that's what I was going off of. I thought it was Ulysses at first.

I am not sure, it looks like someone else added that to the list. I looked at my original spreadsheet I created and I originally had it in Episode 8 when Dean meets Rory at the bus stop, but that is Pride and Prejudice. So maybe I added it at one point but then changed it to P&P! Northanger Abbey does show up in season 4 episode 4 - Rory reads it while people set up for the wedding.
