Six degrees of separation:
The French and Love
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 title containing the word French and ended up with Love!
This shouldn’t surprise you, lol.
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 with the same word
NB: I goofed, I didn’t realize the book to start with this month was Fight Club!!
BUT we are in February after all, so nice to land on love!
After the covers, you can find the links to my reviews or to the title on Goodreads:
1. The French Lieutenant’s Woman = I confess I have never read it! And I don’t even remember if I ever watched the movie.
Convince me: why should I read and/or watch it?
2. Are We French Yet? = Nice collections of funny ad culturally aware vignettes highlighting how life can be enriched by being familiar with two cultures. My full review will be live on 2/6
3. When You Are Engulfed in Flames = this is not my favorite by Sedaris, though it’s very good. A collection of very funny essays. My favorite books by him are Me Talk Pretty One day, on learning the French language; and Holidays on Ice, super hilarious essays on Christmas. You HAVE to listen to Sedaris narrate his own audiobook
5. The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy = Within a contemplative atmosphere rich in descriptions of places and people, past and present, The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy offers a beautiful lesson in simple happiness. A great voice in literary fiction I am ready to listen to again.
6. Love and Invention = A beautiful hymn to creativity, to the courage to be different, to be oneself while connecting with others. Set in France!
