The Gilmore Girls Book List

So I decided to compile a list of the books I have read from the Gilmore Girls reading list.  Let me start by saying, we should all strive to be as literary at Lorelai and Rory!  There are several authors in that list from Thursday that I have studied, but I did not add them to my book list, because honestly I cannot remember every text of theirs I have read.  So many of the Norton Anthologies I read in school compiled bits of their work--poetry, short stories, excerpts from their novels--that it becomes almost impossible to remember every piece.  Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Sylvia Plath, Leo Tolstoy, and D.H. Lawrence are just a few of the writers that could fall into that category.  However, I did include the novels I read either as a child or in school--some of which are near and dear to my heart.  Can you guess which ones?  

But without further adieu, here is my list!
