Six Degrees of Separation: The Bass Rock to A Desperate Fortune

Welcome to this month's edition of Six Degrees of Separation, which is a monthly meme hosted by Kate from Books Are My Favourite and Best.  The idea is to start with a specific book and make a series of links from one book to the next using whatever link you can find and see where you end up after six links.  I am also linking this post up with The Sunday Salon, hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz.

The starting point this month is The Bass Rock by Evie Wyld which is a book I have heard of before, but haven't read. 

My first connection is to another author I haven't read yet, Evie Dunmore. She writes historical romances and has a series titled the League of Extraordinary Women which I have heard good things about. This is the first book in that series. I'll get to them one day. Maybe.

This time I am going to link surnames to Helen Dunmore and her book, The Greatcoat. I think I borrowed this from the library a few times but I never did quite get to reading it. I have read other books by her though.

The window on that cover made me think of The Wide Window by Lemony Snicket. Many years ago an America friend from Oprahs Book Club sent me several of the Lemony Snicket books. Unfortunately she passed at a very young age. So sad.

One of the first books I read as part of that groups was One Hundred Years of  Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

My next link is to Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende, for the only reason that she is another South American author.

And because I never miss an opportunity to link to a Susanna Kearsley book so for my final link I have chosen A Desperate Fortune.

I feel like I have jumped a bit all over the place this month. Next month we start with Eat, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss.


  1. I don't think you jumped too far, though. Nice chain!

  2. Great chain! Evie Dunmore's historical romances have been on my TBR. Thanks for the reminder that I need to get read them so I can get them off of it. :D

  3. Lemony Snicket! The kids at school loved that one:)

  4. These are always serendipitous! You never know where one book will lead you. Fun!
