Vous en rêviez : voici la liste des 340 livres mentionnés dans Gilmore Girls

Publié le 13 août 2020 - 20h04

Gilmore Girls regorge de références cinématographiques, littéraires et musicales. Pour preuve, le premier épisode de cette série à succès commençait avec une blague faite par le personnage de Lorelai, au sujet de l’écrivain Jack Kerouac ! Rien d’étonnant, donc, à ce que la fille de Lorelai, prénommée Rory, soit une grande lectrice.

 

Aujourd’hui la rédaction de Serieously vous propose de (re)découvrir la liste des 340 ouvrages mentionnés dans Gilmore Girls. Dans un souci de cohérence, toutes les œuvres n’étant pas américaines, nous avons choisi de conserver les titres anglais.
