Six Degrees of Separation: Beach Read to The Night Ship



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. 


This month the starting point is Beach Read by Emily Henry - a book I read and loved a few years ago.

I also read/listened and loved this author's latest book Book Lovers recently, so I am using this as my first link. 

The main female character in Book Lovers is named Nora Stephens, so I am going to choose a Nora Roberts book as my next link. The question is really which one. There are just so many to choose from. In the end I am choosing Year One, the first book in the Chronicles of the One trilogyl

One thing that links both of these books is that they are narrrated by Julia Whelan who does an excellent job. Julia Whelan has now started writing her own books and so my next link is to her book Thank You for Listening

Another author whose name is Julia is Julia Quinn, author of the Bridgerton series. She is another author where there are many books to choose from, but I am going with The Viscount Who Loved Me, which is the second book in the series and the most recent of the series to be adapted for TV.

For the next link I am choosing a book that I have recently watched the adaptation of - The Flat Share by Beth O'Leary. I watched the last three episodes while I was on the plane. 

The book that I tried to read on the plane was The Night Ship by Jess Kidd

Next month the starting point is Trust by Hernan Diaz. Will you be joining in?


  1. That last one seems the odd one out, since all the others are pretty romantic. Still, I see the link. Well done!

  2. Your Six Degrees of Separation has led me through a series of books I've read to some that now intrigue me including Thank You for Listening and the Julia Quinn books. And for me that's the best sort of Six Degrees of Separation!

  3. Cool linking here!! I have been meaning to read Thank You for Listening so will have to look for it now..
