Six degrees of separation: from Lincoln to Alexandria


Six degrees of separation:
Lincoln to Alexandria

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:

  1. Use your list of books on Goodreads

  2. Take the first word of the title offered and find another title with that word in it

  3. Then use the first word of THAT title to find your text title

  4. Or the second if the title starts by the same word

So here is the result for February 2018. After the covers, you can find the links of my reviews or the title on Goodreads:

Lincoln in the Bardo  The Lincoln Conspiracy

the-sun-king-conspiracy half of a yellow sun

Vanished Kingdoms The Vanished Library

1. Lincoln in the Bardo = I haven’t read it, and don’t plan too, too weird, I think
2. The LINCOLN Conspiracy = Very interesting historical thriller
3. The Sun King CONSPIRACY = Superb historical novel on Louis XIV, Fouquet, Vaux-le-Vicomte. Definitely my favorite title on this page
I forgot to specify: this book is part of my
February giveaway
4. Half of a Yellow SUN  = depressing, as many books I have read on Africa, but excellent historical novel on Biafra 
5. Vanished Kingdoms: The History of HALF-Forgotten Europe = history book on my TBR for a while. 
About small and bigger European countries that are no longer on the map
6. The VANISHED Library: A Wonder of the Ancient World= this history book has been for 5 years on my TBR. 
But I still hope to read it one day, as it is on the ancient library of Alexandria

  1. It’s funny how some books stay on our TBR pile for years, while others we pick up immediately – I wonder why that is? As an aside, I just noticed your rating system – I like it! I always have trouble working out how to differentiate between a three and a four, so you’ve offered a good guide to go with – thanks!


  2. I like your take on the meme – your Goodreads list is obviously better populated than mine as I’m not sure I could get past Lincoln using this method 😀

    I haven’t read any of the books in your chain but The Sun King Conspiracy looks excellent.
