Six degrees of separation:
Alexander McCall Smith
This is really cool!
Using my own rules for this fun meme hosted by Kate at Booksaremyfavouriteandbest (see there the origin of the meme and how it works – posted the first Saturday of every month), I started with a mystery and indeed on one.
Here are my own quirky rules:
Use your list of books on Goodreads
Take the first word of the title offered and find another title with that word in it
Then use the first word of THAT title to find your text title
Or the second if the title starts by the same word
So here the result. After the covers, you can find the links of my reviews or the title on Goodreads:
1. The No. 1 Ladies’s Detective Agency
2. Marie Antoinette’s Darkest Days:
Prisoner NO. 280 in the Conciergerie
3. Confessions of MARIE Antoinette
4. Ex Libris: CONFESSIONS of a Common Reader
= on my TBR
5. Studio Saint-EX
6. Uno STUDIO in rosso
= ok, I cheated here. I couldn’t find any title with ‘studio’ in it,
but then, this popped up… !!
I did read A Study in Scarlet (actually all of Sherlock Holmes),
so I judge myself allowed to use it… in Italian!!
HAVE YOU READ ANY OF THESE BOOKS?
HAVE YOU PLAYED
SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION
I like your idea of using the titles for all your links. I’ve read A Study in Scarlet, but none of the other books in your chain.
a great story!
I have not read any of these. Certainly not Sherlock in Italian. LOL
try them at least in English, it’s really cool to read them all in order, even better to listen to them, in my experience
Oh, boy, you don’t make it easy for yourself!
I actually think it’s easier doing it this way than thematically as most people do. I don’t have to think actually, lol
I think your rules are hard! I listened to Stephen Fry read all of Holmes stories. It took forever. Hours and hours of enjoyable listening. Fry can even do a passable Australian accent.
yes, it took me a few months, wonderful experience. I actually did a post on my 2017 Sherlock Holmes year: https://wordsandpeace.com/2017/12/22/2017-my-year-with-sherlock-holmes/
I like your idea of using titles! Haven’t read any of the books you’ve included although Studio Saint-Ex is on my Goodreads list.
Thanks for joining in.
You should try Sherlock Holmes, in English of course, lol

I shall enjoy reading your review of Sherlock Holmes in Italian. 😍
I may read it Italian one day, but the writing will probably be for another life, lol
