Inspired by the 6 Degrees of Separation meme hosted by Annabel Smith and Emma Chapman, we recreating something similar with #6BookishDegreesofSeparation. The theme for the first link in the chain May is ✮ Trips ✮
- The last ✮ Trip ✮ I took was a 1 day excursion earlier this week to Kentucky and Indiana. On that trip I listened to the audiobook of Oryx and Crake, Margaret Atwood. It kind of grew on me as the story progressed.
- On my trip before that (1 week prior), I read Easy Travel to Other Planets, Ted Mooney.
- Easy Travel to Other Planets featured a ✮ Weirdly Inappropriate Relationship ✮ involving a dolphin. It reminded me of The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore, Benjamin Hale – where a chimpanzee was the object of desire.
- Another ✮ book that features chimps ✮ is We Are Completely Beside Ourselves, Karen Joy Fowler. The relationship between human and animal was different but similarly complicated.
- We Are Completely Beside Ourselves also features an ✮ unreliable narrator ✮. Here memory is not what it should be, and as a result, the facts she presents might be true or made up. This has to be one of my favorite types of storylines as it keeps me guessing. Another book that did this well is he’s Gone, Deb Caletti.
- he’s Gone is quite the ✮ marriage thriller ✮ – another of my favorite types of reads. If you like that, then you’ll love The Silent Wife, A.S.A. Harrison, or any of the books on 8 Crazy Good Marriage Thrillers That Belong On Your Reading List.
So 6 books linked together by – Trips – Weirdly Inappropriate Relationship – book that features chimps – unreliable narrator – marriage thriller. Have you read any of the books?
