It’s time for #6degrees. Start at the same place as other wonderful readers, add six books, and see where you end up!
This month we begin with the classic teen novel, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton.
My first link is to Rob Lowe’s autobiography, Stories I Only Tell My Friends because the chapters on the making of the film version of The Outsiders are brilliant.
Stories I Only Tell My Friends links to The Glorious Heresies by Lisa McInerney. How? Both books were given to me by a dear friend (and to be honest, very few friends dare buy me books but this friend always gets it right).
How to Make Gravy is described as a ‘memoir in a hundred songs’. Similar is Nick Hornby’s 31 Songs.
When I first started this blog I wrote a post about ‘lad lit’ for readers who love Nick Hornby. It remains one of the most popular posts I’ve written, second only to my spoiler post for Suzanne Rindell’s The Other Typist.
Movies, gifts, Twitter and songs and yet it’s still about books! Where will other chains go? Link up below or post your link in the comments section.
Next month (November 3, 2018), we’ll begin with Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray.
