It’s time for #6degrees. Join in and thrill us with your clever links!
Given that we’ve recently marked 200 years since Jane Austen’s death, it seemed fitting to begin this month’s chain with the universally loved Pride and Prejudice.
You may be wondering how I skip from Pride to the Sweet Valley High series by Francine Pascal… It’s via these:
Yes, I have both Jane Austen and Sweet Valley High board games.
Sweet Valley High is set in California, which brings to mind California by Edan Lepucki. I was completely seduced by the cover of this book and paid no regard to what it was actually about before requesting an ARC… which was silly because apocalyptic fiction is really not my thing.
Should have learnt a lesson but did the same with The First Rule of Swimming by Courtney Brkic – loved the cover, obtained an ARC, but still haven’t read it…
Which brings me to Swimming Lessons by Claire Fuller – a gorgeous story in which both swimming and books feature (my favourite things!).
I have a swimming story in my TBR stack that has received lots of positive reviews – The Last Wave by Gillian Best.
From a British classic and a teen classic to cover design, swimming and potential prize winners, that’s #6degrees for another month.
I wonder where other chains will lead? Link up below (or add your link in the Comments section).
Next month (September 2, 2017), we’ll begin with a book that everyone was reading in the nineties, Wild Swans by Jung Chang.
