Six degrees of separation: From a wolf to tales

#6Degrees

Six degrees of separation:
From a wolf to tales

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 somebody a wolf(e) and ended up with tales, which makes total sense.
Will you follow the wolf with me?

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, or you are stuck

 Wolfe Island Five on a Treasure Island

 Five-finger Discount French house

fairy-tales Canterbury tales

1. Wolfe Island
I hadn’t paid attention before to what this book was about. Actually, I may end up reading this dystopian novel. Should I?
By the same author, I read Salt Creek. I almost gave it 4 stars, great writing, but it was so so sad!

2. Five of a Treasure Island
My favorite series as a kid!

3. Five-Finger Discount: A Crooked Family History
“I understand now why this book has been on the Book Club shelf of my library for a long time: it is both so funny and so true, and seems to describe very well a page of Americana one may not always be proud of.”

4. The French House: An American Family, a Ruined Maison, and the Village That Restored Them All
VERDICTWith hauntingly beautiful descriptions of a tiny French island and its inhabitants, this book will take you to a different place, and might even inspire you to reconsider your life and finally follow your dreams where you and your family can become whole.

5. Fairy Tales for the Disillusioned: Enchanted Stories from the French Decadent Tradition
VERDICT: Remarkable anthology of famous fairy tales as reinterpreted by French authors of the Decadent movement. Fascinating and very enjoyable example of comparative literature at its best.

6. The Canterbury Tales
A witty satire of the English society and Church of the 14th century.
