Six degrees of separation: from Alexander McCall Smith to Sherlock Holmes

#6Degrees

Six degrees of separation:
from
Alexander McCall Smith
to
Sherlock Holmes

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 the result. After the covers, you can find the links of my reviews or the title on Goodreads:

  The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency marie-antoinettes-darkest-days
onfessions of Marie Antoinette Ex Libris
Studio Saint-Ex  Uno studio in rosso

     

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!!
