Six Degrees of Separation: Trust to Lords of the White Castle


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 Trust by Hernan Diaz

My first link is using the surname Diaz. I have chosen the Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz

From there, my next choice is an Oscar winner, The Lost Thing by Australian author Shaun Tan.

There are many books that we could choose for the word lost. In fact, I once did a whole post just about lost things for Top Ten Tuesday not too long ago.  I have chosen The Well of Lost Plots by Jasper Fforde for this post.

My next link is to Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey.

I am once again linking from the surname, this time to Howls Moving Castle by Diana Wynn Jones

And for my last link I am using the word castle to Lords of the White Castle by Elizabeth Chadwick

Next month the starting point is Passages by Gail Sheehy.


  1. I don't know if I have 10 books with the same word in the title to do a TTT for! Cool that you can with the word Lost.

  2. I haven't read any of those books, but I love Elizabeth Chadwick and will read Lords of the White Castle eventually. Great chain!

  3. I do keep meaning t read the Thursday Next books; glad your chain reminded me :)

  4. The Lost Thing looks interesting!

  5. Great connections! And the books look interesting too.

  6. I do love Howl's Moving Castle! I haven't read that Elizabeth Chadwick yet but I am a big fan of her books.

  7. So, so clever. I can never think of where to even start after I know the title of a book. I love the simplicity of just using a word or a name.

  8. Love Howl's Moving Castle (and the Ghibli film as well, even though it's a bit messy).
