Gilmore Girls Book Club: The Alice Network by Kate Quinn

If there was any other way to combine reading and the love of Gilmore Girls, this group of women clearly know how to do it right. Introducing the Gilmore Girls Book Club! A colleague of mine found a list for 13 Books Coming Out for Gilmore Girls Fans in 2017 and gauged interest from us and the rest is history. To clarify, none of these books are directly related to the Gilmore Girls nor are they on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. They are books reminiscent of small town living and the quirky and lovable characters we’ve grown up with.

Book Club: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Because our drive for this book came from the Emmy nominations and wins for the HBO limited series of the same name, we decided that this month we would read the novel and binge watch the show as a way to debrief! One of our members pointed out an ironic quote from the book that relates to several bookworms – “It didn’t take Celeste long to realize that this was going to be the sort of book club where the book was secondary to the proceedings. She felt mild disappointment. She’d been looking forward to talking about the book. She’d even embarrassingly, prepared for book club…marking up a few pages with Post-it notes and writing a few pithy comments in the margins” (Moriarty 263). The funny part is, that is what happened haha. Beginning at 6pm, we knocked out 3.5 episodes (we met on a Tuesday and we are all avid This Is Us fans so we had to stop at 9pm!).
