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 April was ✮ Awards ✮
- A lot of my reading choices are based on books that were nominated, or won ✮ Book Awards ✮. Sometimes I love the winners, like Uprooted by Naomi Novik, which won this year’s Nebula Award for Best novel.
- And sometimes I don’t like the winners, like with The Vegetarian, Han Kang which won the Man Booker International Prize this year.
- The Vegetarian has a ✮ Similar Book Cover ✮ to another book I read, Three Strong Women, Marie NDiaye. Which one do you prefer?
4. Maria NDiaye is one of those ✮ authors I’ve read only 1 book from but want to read more ✮ just like Nova Ren Suma who write Imaginary Girls.
5. I read Imaginary Girls way back in 2011, and it was one of my favorite reads of the year. Another ✮ favorite book read in 2011 ✮ was The Scorpio Races, Maggie Stiefvater.
6. I’ve read quite a few ✮ books written by Maggie Stiefvater ✮, and Scorpio Races is my favorite, closely followed by Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #1).
So 6 books linked together by – Book Awards – Similar Book Covers – authors I’ve read only 1 book from but want to read more – favorite books read in 2011 – books written by Maggie Stiefvater . Have you read any of the books?
This post is late for the month of April, but will be back on time next week with May’s theme of . The first link in the chain for next month (March) will be ✮ TRIP ✮ so feel free to join in and interpret how you wish.

What fun!! I have heard such amazing things about Uprooted! It’s on my list to get for my son for his birthday 🙂
Amazing how similar those two covers are – wow.
I love Maggie Stiefvater, too – absolutely loved the Shiver series (even though I thought I wouldn’t from the synopsis) and also the Raven Boys series (The Raven King is sitting here waiting for me!) Believe it or not, I still haven’t read Scorpio Races, but it is here on my TBR shelf – I wonder if it is long enough to add to my pile for Big Book Summer??
Great post – enjoyed the creativity & look forward to next month’s.

I read “whisper” written by Maggie Stiefvater and I didn’t liked it very much. The plot was interesting but the execution was quite different . The story is quite confusing, at times also dismissive . I didn’t find this death struggle they say in the synthesis . The characters are not really well characterized; their descriptions are quite sketchy .
Probably the translation is not very accurate, because I have found that many sentences , syntactically , are very bad .
