Reading Challenge: Gilmore Girls Season 6

Gilmore Girls season 6 book list

I previously posted book lists for Gilmore Girls Seasons 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. Below is my book list for Season 6. This book list was compiled by watching the show and researching other people’s book lists found online. The book and the episode it was in are included on this list. Gilmore Girls was on for seven seasons, so I’m doing a book list for each season instead of one really long list. My book lists leave off reference books, travel guides, and cookbooks. To see what I’m currently reading, click over to my Goodreads.

11/27/2016 UPDATE:
I did create a Goodreads list for this book list. If you’re interested, click on over to Gilmore Girls: Season 6 Books.

UPDATE 8/19/2018 :
I completed this book list in August 2018.
