I am participating in the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, (reading the books mentioned during the 7 seasons of Gilmore Girls)
For my second book I chose “The Nanny Diaries” by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus. I read it in 24 hours, I couldn’t put it down. I just had to know what became of Nanny, and Grayer, and Mrs. X. I was totally engrossed in the story and just kept wanting to know more. I was almost disappointed when it was over.
I know there are those who found this story depressing and yes, my heart also breaks for the Grayers and Mrs. Xes out there in the world, but for me it was an interesting fast-paced read. I’d recommend it to anyone. I just saw that there is a sequel, that I will download on my Kindle and read as soon as I’ve finished reading “The Wizard of Oz”, which I chose for book #3 before I knew there was a Nanny Diaries sequel.
1. “Nanny Returns”, the Nanny Diaries sequel, is not part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge.
2. The Wizard of Oz is a free download for your Kindle. I’m not sure I love this one just yet, but it could just be that class started up again and I haven’t had the time to really focus on reading for fun.
