Six Degrees of Separation – A Scandalous Ghost

Six Degrees of Separation – A Scandalous Ghost

Greetings! It’s the 1st of October and the start of Spooky Season. Whoo hooo. To start the month of, we will be joining Kate @ Books are my Favorite and Best for Six Degrees of Separation. Start at the same place as other wonderful readers, add six books, and see where you end up. Today’s starting point is a book we haven’t read yet and I’m not all that sure we ever will. From the first day that the beguiling Sheba Hart joins the staff of St George’s, history teacher Barbara Covett is convinced she has found a kindred spirit. Barbara’s loyalty to her new friend is passionate and unstinting, and when Sheba is discovered having an illicit affair with one of her pupils, Barbara quickly elects herself as Sheba’s chief defender. But all is not as it first seems in this dark story and, as Sheba will soon discover, a friend can be just as treacherous as any lover. It was printed under another name, What was she thinking? as well and I believe that title is quite apt! So where will this scandalous book take us? Well, to a scandal of course. 1st Degree: A Scandal in Bohemia – A […]

Six Degrees of Separation – Calling the Lost

Six Degrees of Separation – Calling the Lost

Greetings! I can’t believe a month has passed since our last Six Degrees. Wow! And spring is finally in the air and this morning my Mommy said we might take the little mutt to the beach later today. But first – Six Degrees of Separation. This monthly fun meme is hosted by Books are my Favorite and Best: On the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. Books can be linked in obvious ways, for example: same authors, same era or genre, or books with similar themes or settings. Or you might choose to link them in more personal ways: books you read in the same holiday, books given to you by a particular friend or books that remind you of a particular time in your life. The choices are endless here!  Our starting point this month, is the last book in your previous chain. So for us, that will be The Book of  Lost Names by Kristin Harmel. We haven’t read it yet, but it’s not quite lost either as we have a copy on our kindle and will hopefully get to it soon. We are […]

Six Degrees of Separation – The Book of ……

Six Degrees of Separation – The Book of ……

Greetings you guys! We haven’t done a Six Degrees post since March… Good grief!! How did that happen?? We love Six Degrees and I can’t believe we’ve skipped 4 months. In our defense, it was a bit of a crazy year so far. I guess I now need to start explaining Six Degrees all over again. From Kate over at Books are My Favorite and Best, our host for this fun monthly meme: On the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. Readers and bloggers are invited to join in by creating their own ‘chain’ leading from the selected book. How the meme works Books can be linked in obvious ways – for example, books by the same authors, from the same era or genre, or books with similar themes or settings. Or, you may choose to link them in more personal ways: books you read on the same holiday, books given to you by a particular friend, books that remind you of a particular time in your life, or books you read for an online challenge. A book doesn’t need to be connected to […]

Six Degrees of Separation – An Affair like no Other

Greetings you guys! It’s the first Saturday of March and there is a definite nip in the air today. Still a beautiful, bright sunny day though. But we are not here to talk about the weather, we are gathered here today for Six Degrees of Separation. This monthly fun meme is hosted by Books are my Favorite and Best: On the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. Books can be linked in obvious ways, for example: same authors, same era or genre, or books with similar themes or settings. Or you might choose to link them in more personal ways: books you read in the same holiday, books given to you by a particular friend or books that remind you of a particular time in your life. The choices are endless here!  Our starting point this month is a book we’ve seen before, but not read. I think my Mommy might read this. While I take a catnap. Graham Greene’s masterful novel of love and betrayal in World War II London is “undeniably a major work of art” (The New Yorker). Maurice Bendrix, a writer […]

Six Degrees of Separation – No Purrs, Just Talk

Six Degrees of Separation – No Purrs, Just Talk

Hi there Guys! It’s just me this month for Six Degrees of Separation. We are taking a long weekend and the fluffy ball of fur is at home with the rest of the fur-balls and a babysitter. So no unnecessary meows and purrs today, just straight talk and a quick post so I can get back to my reading, relaxing and drinking wine.

The choices are endless here!  Our starting point this month is a book I haven’t heard of, but it just landed on my TBR pile: Without Elza, my creativity obviously takes a bit of a nose dive and I couldn’t think […]
