Six Degrees of Separation is the brain child of Kate over at Books Are My Favourite and Best where we all start with the same book, and head down the rabbit hole to add six more, and see where our links take us!
Follow the hashtag #6degrees on Twitter to check out everyone else’s chains. Six Degrees of Separation takes place on the first Saturday of the month.
The starting book for this month is The Lottery by Shirley Jackson.
Perhaps a kind of obvious jump, but I’m participating in a readathon in the month of October, and for one of the prompts I am choosing to read The Haunting Of Hill House which is also by Shirley Jackson, so that is my first jump.
So next I’m going to go to another haunted house style book, that I read recently, and that is Bly by Kelsey Ketch.
Next I’m going to the inspiration behind Bly which was The Turn Of The Screw by Henry James.
Okay, this next jump is totally a me issue, but I have always gotten the titles of Taming Of The Shrew and Turn Of The Screw mixed up, so logically, that has to be my next book.
And now we are at Shakespeare, so I am going to end of That Way Madness Lies edited by Dahlia Adler, which is a book containing 15 different Shakespeare retellings.
Have you read any of these books? What path would you take? Let me know!
