My favourite Lorelai moment and WIN a copy of Talking as Fast as I Can by Lauren Graham. 

This blog tour is to celebrate the release of A Year in the Life (four new episodes of the Gilmore Girls)  but also the imminent release of Lauren Graham’s new book, Talking as Fast As I Can: Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls and Everything in Between which is available from 6th December 2016 (from Virago.) I am so excited to be a part of this tour. I have a copy of Lauren’s new book to give away (details further down,) but first, my favourite Lorelai moment.

I am very new to The Gilmore Girls. I am not sure how this brilliant TV show passed me by but all I can say is thank goodness for Netflix.

I have been pretty much binge watching this for the last few weeks; sneaking in an episode whenever I can. I am a little torn actually. I want to get to A Year in the Life as I don’t want any spoilers to ruin it (curse the internet,) but at the same time, I don’t want to get through it too quickly as I want my viewing of Gilmore Girls to last as long as it can. I want to go and live in Stars Hollow (or Rosewood for Pretty Little Liars fans.) Can I go and live with Lorelai and Rory?

There is something magical about this series. It’s funny and warm.

I have been asked to talk about my favourite Lorelai moment. How do I pick? There have been many scenes where I have laughed and felt sad for the characters. I want to go and be a part of those town meetings. They look so much fun.

There have been many episodes that I could have picked and I am nowhere near the end. For example, the many exchanges between Lorelai and Emily are just brilliant.

However, there was one scene that has seemed to stand out for me.

It involves Luke and Lorelai. It had to be between them really. The scene I specifically love is in season two, episode nine. It’s

where Lorelai has been out for a date with the guy from her class (and it turns out he is a little too young and was also the guy out of Popular if there is anyone familiar with that series. A guilty pleasure of mine.)

At the end of the episode, Lorelai approaches Luke in the diner and explains that she doesn’t have many people actually in her life. She doesn’t have many people that are there for her and she there for them. She has Rory, Sookie and Luke… ‘if I still have…’ to which Luke replies, ‘You do.’ This is an example of a small amount of words having so much meaning. It’s great writing.

It’s such a lovely and romantic exchange. I love it. It’s definitely my favourite scene so far. What’s yours?

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
