It’s time for #6degrees. Start at the same place as other wonderful readers, add six books, and see where you end up.
Daisy Miller is set in Switzerland, as is Sweet Days of Discipline by Fleur Jaeggy.
Sweet Days takes place in a boarding school. Is it a good school? Hard to say, but apparently Dorset Academy is – Dorset is the setting for Richard Yates’s boarding school novel, A Good School.
I read something by Yates every year. This year, it was a re-read – Disturbing the Peace.
An asylum features heavily in Distubing the Peace, as it does in Anna Hope’s novel, The Ballroom.
The Ballroom is set on the Yorkshire Moors, as is Mick Jackson’s tale of a Japanese girl on a pilgrimage – Yuki Chan in Brontë Country.
From Switzerland and boarding schools to asylums and the Yorkshire Moors – where will other chains go? Link up below or post your link in the comments section.
Next month (November 7, 2020) is a wild card – start with the book you’ve ended a previous chain with, and continue from there (for those playing for the first time, start with the last book you finished reading).
