This past week it was announced that the new season of Gilmore Girls will be available beginning November 25th. So soon, yet so far away! If you’re like me, you’re over the top, can’t-wait-to-see-it excited (which is an understatement). Unfortunately, there are several weeks to get through – including this brutal election season – before we get the long-awaited update on Lorelai and Rory. While it might be impossible to tune out all of the nonsense, here are a few good options of the fictional sort.

Someday, Someday Maybe by Lauren Graham

While my first pick isn’t entirely related to Gilmore Girls, it was written by one. Someday, Someday Maybe isn’t the tale of mothers and daughters, but it is written by Lauren Graham. It’s an obvious connection, but also a fun read.

Buy here.

Steal the North by Heather Brittain Bergstrom

The next novel I’d like to recommend is Steal the North by Heather Brittain Bergstrom, the story of a pregnant teenager who flees her family and starts over in a new city. When her daughter is 16, she reconnects with the family she left behind. It’s far more dramatic than Gilmore Girls, but very good nonetheless.

Buy here.

Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

My third pick is Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. It’s the story of an eccentric mother and daughter who are also best friends. It’s humorous family dysfunction with a lot of heart. Sounds familiar, right?

Buy here.

Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts

Next up is Where the Heart Is by Billie Letts. A pregnant teen, with no family support, finds herself making a home in a town filled with quirky, well-meaning citizens.

Buy here.

Christine by Stephen King

Finally, for an offbeat recommendation, I have Christine by Stephen King. Dean builds Rory a car, it’s neither possessed nor evil, but Rory loves it – until Jess wrecks it. Chosen because the novel appears in the show and because I love Stephen King…

Buy here.

So there you have it, five recommendations to hold you over until November 25th. I hope you make it!
