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.
This month we start from:
0. Friendaholic by Elizabeth Day
"As a society, there is a tendency to elevate romantic love. But what about friendships? Aren't they just as – if not more – important? So why is it hard to find the right words to express what these uniquely complex bonds mean to us? In Friendaholic: Confessions of a Friendship Addict, Elizabeth Day embarks on a journey to answer these questions." - Goodreads
I haven't read this book, but the title says it all. The center theme is about friendship, which I picked to build my first chain - a friendship of two men which was developing throughout the years, or throughout the books where they were in together. I'm talking about....
For my next chain, I used the word Four from the title, and picked another book from Christie with the same number in the title:
It is one of Miss Marple's cases, where she looks into her friend's claim that she witnessed a murder on a train.
Again, I use one word from the last book title: Paddington, for my next chain:
Everyone knows who Paddington is, a fictional animal character who can think and talk like human being.
Another book with animal who can think like human being, and even narrate the book from its point of view is:
"Black Beauty's story, as told by himself, is the fascinating tale of the life of a horse a hundred years ago, when horses were a part of daily life." - Amazon
Another book with a horse in the story as well as in the title, would be my next chain:
Before finding this book in online
second hand bookstore, I didn't know that this book has been adapted into movie
starring Matt Damon! Have you watched it?
And so, for my last chain, here is another book from my TBR with Matt Damon starring in the movie adaptation, and also appears in the cover:
I haven't read this, because this is a rare condition where I have watched the movie first before reading the book. Serious question: is it worth reading?
There, another fun chain to build. It begins with a book which provides many possibilities to create lovely chains. The one I posted here was my third options, which I found most interesting.
Have you read those books? If you do #sixdegree, how it worked out for you this time?
