Six degrees of separation: from the Bible to Canterbury

#6Degrees

Six degrees of separation:
from
the Bible to Canterbury

Another cool result this month!
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 containing the word Bible and ended up in Canterbury. This is really fun, you never know where you’ll end up.
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

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

    The Poisonwood Bible   The Poisoned Crown

     The French Sultana    fairy-tales

                    Perrault's Fairy Tales  Canterbury tales

 

1. The Poisonwood Bible = this is the first book I read by Kingsolver. I was still in France, but a friend loved it so much, he mailed it to me from the US. After that, I have almost all her books.
2. The Poisoned Crown = this is the 3rd book in the famous historical fiction series by the French Maurice Druon, called The Accursed Kings. I really enjoyed the first two, but was no longer in the mood for #3 and DNFed it. Maybe one day I’ll get back to it.
3. The French Sultana (The Veil and the Crown, #2)= wonderful historical novel on Josephine’s cousin!
4. Fairy Tales for the Disillusioned: Enchanted Stories from the French Decadent Tradition = fabulous and quirky anthology by PrincetonUniversity Press
5. Perrault’s Fairy Tales =  I actually read them in French, a few decades ago.
6. The Canterbury Tales = I listened to them 7 years ago, it was fun!

Six degrees of separation: from beauty to truth

#6Degrees

Six degrees of separation:
from
beauty to truth

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 March 2018. I’m quite happy I managed to do it with the main part of titles, and all with books I have read and liked.
Plus starting with Beauty and ending up with Truth, that’s neat.
After the covers, you can find the links of my reviews or the title on Goodreads:

Beauty Myth   Beauty for ashes

The Ashes of Heaven's Pillar   Pigs in heaven

  the true story of 3 little pigs  True North

1. The Beauty Myth = I haven’t read it, and don’t plan too, not interested in that type of topics
2. Beauty For Ashes = interesting story of  a Greek village
3. The Ashes of Heaven‘s Pillar = wonderful historical novel
4. Pigs in Heaven = I love all the books by Kingsolver!
5. The True Story of 3 Little Pigs =  a quirky twist on a classic
6. True North = Jill Ker Conway is a fascinating person. This is the sequel to The Road From Coorain.
Both books are highly recommended, if you like to read about strong women of your time.

Six degrees of separation: from Lincoln to Alexandria

Six degrees of separation:
from
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.

  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
