as you may know my book club started when i discovered the rory gilmore reading list (which you can download for free here). the book club reads six books from this list every year – we alternate with other books – and so i wanted to link the list with my new hamilton reading challenge.
after a few hours of research (which i loved, because researching books is almost as satisfying as reading them), i found twelve books from the list that will satisfy the twelve prompts.
