Rory Gilmore e os livros

tumblr_m7eh2rah8J1qkmrspo1_500

Olá, pessoal! Vi no blog da Mellory, Croissant Parisiense, este post sobre Gilmore Girls e óbvio que amei. Mas o que mais me chamou a atenção foi uma ideia do blog  Faz Parte, que foi citada na postagem: o Rory Gilmore Book Project. Todo mundo aqui está cansado de saber que eu AMO Gilmore Girls, eu já contei que eu tenho uma foto autografada pela Lauren? Pior que não sei onde está, vou ter que procurar. Voltando. Amo a série e tudo relacionado a ela.

Uma das maiores qualidades que eu admirava e admiro em Rory, além do relacionamento praticamente perfeito com a mãe, é a paixão dela por livros. Algo que compartilhamos, assim como o jornalismo. Aiai. Adoro ela. Opa, viajei de novo. Enfim, eu sempre fiquei de olho nos títulos que ela lia e tinha vontade de ler os mesmos livros que ela. Acho que nunca fiz isso. Mas posso ter a chance de fazer nos próximos anos de leitura da minha vida – espero que sejam muitos.

tumblr_lpruxtk4Yw1r1vggvo1_500 De acordo com a Nii, do Faz Parte, o blog que deve ser o que lançou o projeto é de 2009. Hoje existem vários outros que reúnem os fãs do seriado e a obsessão da Rory pelos livros o que acaba sendo uma forma de matar a saudade da série. Um exemplo é o grupo ‘The Rory Gilmore Book Club’ no Goodreads. Tão legal!!

A lista não está completa, mas tem quase 250 livros que a Rory mostrou na série, por isso chama-se projeto e não desafio e por isso que eu disse que posso lê-los até o fim da vida. Alguns são clássicos, outros acadêmicos, a lista tem obras diferenciadas. Vou tentar incluir um ou dois nas leituras do ano e vocês, se empolgam? Aqui vocês podem conferir a lista no Google Docs e abaixo coloco ela também.

E para nossa felicidade, sabem quem escreveu um livro? Lauren Graham, a eterna Lorelai Gilmore. Será que eu vou querer? Sim ou com certeza? Someday, Someday, Maybe: A Novel  está em pré-venda na Amazon por US$ 15,19. Confira a sinopse em inglês abaixo e arrisque-se ou não a colocar no Google Tradutor:

From Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, comes a witty, charming, and hilariously relatable debut novel about a struggling young actress trying to get ahead―and keep it together―in New York City.


It’s January 1995, and Franny Banks has just six months left of the three-year deadline she set for herself when she came to New York, dreaming of Broadway and doing “important” work. But all she has to show for her efforts so far is a part in an ad for ugly Christmas sweaters, and a gig waiting tables at a comedy club. Her roommates―her best friend Jane, and Dan, an aspiring sci-fi writer―are supportive, yet Franny knows a two-person fan club doesn’t exactly count as success. Everyone tells her she needs a backup plan, and though she can almost picture moving back home and settling down with her perfectly nice ex-boyfriend, she’s not ready to give up on her goal of having a career like her idols Diane Keaton and Meryl Streep. Not just yet. But while she dreams of filling their shoes, in the meantime, she’d happily settle for a speaking part in almost anything—and finding a hair product combination that works.


Everything is riding on the upcoming showcase for her acting class, where she’ll finally have a chance to perform for people who could actually hire her. And she can’t let herself be distracted by James Franklin, a notorious flirt and the most successful actor in her class, even though he’s suddenly started paying attention. Meanwhile, her bank account is rapidly dwindling, her father wants her to come home, and her agent doesn’t return her calls. But for some reason, she keeps believing that she just might get what she came for.


Someday, Someday, Maybe is a story about hopes and dreams, being young in a city, and wanting something deeply, madly, desperately. It’s about finding love, finding yourself, and perhaps most difficult of all in New York City, finding an acting job.

Quero!!

Beijos e uma ótima quinta-feira.
