6 Degrees of Separation: The Casual Vacancy

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! It’s been far too long since I played my favorite game, don’t you think? The amazing Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman are hosting Six Degrees of Separation and this month’s jumping off point is The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling (review.) Raise your hand if you’re excited! (I’m envisioning zillions of hands in the air, which I will take as a resounding “yes!”) 1. How to Build… Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: The Rosie Project

G’Day Bookworms! It’s time again for the most fun game in all the book blogosphere! Six Degrees of Separation is the super fantastic meme put together by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman. Emma and Annabel have chosen The Rosie Project (review) as this month’s jumping off point. Anybody up for connecting books via tenuous and occasionally ridiculous links? I know I am! 1. Because I had to mentally change my internal… Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: WILD!

Greetings Bookworms! It’s been a while since I played one of my favorite games, so I’m SUPER stoked to tackle Six Degrees of Separation for Wild by Cheryl Strayed (review). This game is hosted, as always, by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman, who are both lovely and delightful.

Now, in the interest of full disclosure, I’ve not yet read We Are All Completely Beside… Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: 1984

Six Degrees of Separation: 1984

How goes it, Bookworms? I’m pretty excited today, because I’m jumping back into one of the coolest memes in the book blogosphere. That’s right. The Six Degrees of Separation meme (hosted by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman) chose 1984 as their jump-off point this month, and, well, I couldn’t NOT participate. Big Brother would be displeased. (I fear Big Brother! Truly, I do. Especially the reality show. I don’t get it.)… Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: Gone Girl

Six Degrees of Separation: Gone Girl

Howdy Bookworms! It’s time again for my favorite monthly meme, Six Degrees of Separation, hosted by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman. This month’s starting point is Gone Girl (review), which is awesome, as my HIGHLY SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH has shown that if Kevin Bacon were a book, he’d be Gone Girl. Kismet, no? 1. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. My first stop on this crazy train is going to be in Hannibal, MO…. Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: The Goldfinch

Six Degrees of Separation: The Goldfinch

Good Day Bookworms! It’s time again for one of my FAVORITE monthly memes, Six Degrees of Separation hosted by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman. They choose a book as a starting point, and then we create a chain of books connecting them in any old way we please. Seriously. I once connected two books using yogurt. It’s awesome. This month I’m happy to announce that I have indeed read the… Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: The Luminaries

Six Degrees of Separation: The Luminaries

Greetings, Bookworms! I was on the fence about participating in the Six Degrees of Separation meme (hosted by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman) this month because the starting point is a book I haven’t read, The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. Boosted by the fact that April created her post not having read the book either, I figured I could go ahead and play along. I do so love this meme!   1. I… Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: The Bell Jar

Six Degrees of Separation: The Bell Jar

G’day Bookworms! It’s Tuesday, but I am forgoing Top Ten Tuesday list making this week in order to make a completely different list! That’s right, I’m talking about the awesome monthly meme, Six Degrees of Separation put on by Emma Chapman and Annabel Smith. This month’s jumping off point is The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I read this in college and found it to be crushingly depressing, but that’s fitting, as the… Read more »

Six Degrees of Separation: Burial Rites (Or, How Katie is a Big Cheater-Face.)

Six Degrees of Separation: Burial Rites (Or, How Katie is a Big Cheater-Face.)

Greetings Bookworms! I recently discovered this fantastic new meme through Rory at Fourth Street Review that’s put on by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman. Once a month Annabel and Emma will choose a book they both enjoyed. Readers will be tasked with creating a 6-degrees-of-separation chain beginning with said book. There’s a ton of room for creativity, because there are no guidelines on the connections. Whatever you feel is fair… Read more »
