Six Degrees of Separation is the brain child of Kate over at Books Are My Favourite and Best where we all start with the same book, and head down the rabbit hole to add six more, and see where our links take us!
Follow the hashtag #6degrees on Twitter to check out everyone else’s chains. Six Degrees of Separation takes place on the first Saturday of the month.
This month, the starting book is Second Place by Rachel Cusk.
Second Place has a yellow cover, so I decided that I am going to link straight to a book with a yellow cover that I just finished reading: The Summer Job by Lizzy Dent.
The Summer Job is about Birdy, a woman who poses as her best friend, and spends the summer working as a sommelier in a Scottish hotel. While her best friend Heather is an actual trained sommelier, Birdy knows basically nothing about wine at all.
Since The Summer Job is about a sommelier and features a lot of wine. I’ve decided to jump next to one of my fave genres – cozy mysteries! Decanting A Murder by Nadine Nettman is about a sommelier who has to solve a murder while at a wine tasting event.
From here, we are going to another cozy mystery with a staircase on the cover (because why not?). So Peril In Paperback by Kate Carlisle is next.
Next I’m jumping to Confessions Of A Curious Bookseller by Elizabeth Green, which a book I read earlier in the year.
Fawn, the owner of the bookstore in Confessions Of A Curious Bookseller has a huge soft spot for cats, and so I feel like she would attract the cats in Old Possum’s Book Of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot.
