3 books can come from wherever you choose
Please post your task list below


When you’ve completed a task be sure to make a new post in this thread with your competed entry.

Be sure to use the Rory Gilmore reading list that can be found in the “How It Works” thread from Black, White and Read Books blog, and you can also use the list of books featured in the revival which can also be found in the How it Works thread. I’ll try to keep up to date with a score board and post the winner at the end of the challenge!

Tasks:
1. Read one book that was featured in a winter episode of Gilmore Girls (revival or original series) ** this one must be from the Rory Gilmore Reading List



2. Read one book that takes place in a small town like Stars Hollow (bonus points if the story occurs during winter)

3. Read one book that you have been putting off reading/ has been on your "to read" list for a while that you are determined to read in 2018
