Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments When I finish the Penguin Classics and the Modern Library's List, I want to do the Rory Gilmore list. Gilmore Girls was one of my favorite shows.

Ariel  (lamot_amant) | 728 comments I think I might follow suit and do the previous Popsugar. Admittedly I haven't fully checked out 2016's though. But I need the Rory Gilmore Challenge in my life lol, I miss that show. Apparently they're coming out with something new on Netflix but that might just be based on fan's hopes. I'll keep fingers crossed. Good luck on your challenges!
