    "I'm going to be honest here and say I've never seen Gilmore Girls. Never really wanted to either, but Romeo and Juliet is a timeless piece of work that I think every child still learns about in school. It's an excellent piece of work that combines drama and romanticism, and heart-felt sadness that really moves you. It's well worth reading and even watching some of the film adaptations as well as live adaptations that are still done in theaters. It's truly a great book."

    "I am not quite sure how Harry Potters books or movies mentioned in Gilmore Girls but I am sure there were many other books. I am not a big fan of Gilmore Girls but I know enough that The Goblet of Fire were not a big deal in it."

    "There are tons of books mentioned in the Gilmore Girl series from new to old and complete works of fiction to autobiographical. I've read quite a few mentioned in the show, but one of the greatest will always be this book. I remember reading it in my early teens and it has stuck with me since."

    "The story by Emily Bronte is very entertaining. I like to read this whenever it is cold and rainy outside and I am alone in my house. I will make myself some hot tea and sometimes coffee and just read this book all the way through. I have read it many times and be aware it is very long."
