Guys, it has been over FOUR years since I posted one of these. YIKES! Where has the time gone? I used to love this feature, and I'm excited to share a new iteration of it.
If you're new to my Six Degrees of Separation posts (which I'm sure more of you are), this is where I look at some of the books I've read recently and make connections between them. In today's post I'm featuring 7 books with 6 connections. These are all non-contemporary reads, because that's mostly what I've been reading recently. The similarities between them are spoiler free.
In Wintersong and Caraval a responsible elder sister will do anything to rescue her flighty, younger sibling. Along the way she will let loose her own inhibitions and find love.
Both Caraval and Crown of Wishes begin with an invitation to play a mysterious game, and feature an unlikely partnership that turns to more (aka swoons abound!).
Crown of Wishes and Strange the Dreamer feature boys who look for magic and dream of the impossible, and their lives changes in unexpected ways when they find it.
Two of the main characters in Strange the Dreamer and Traitor to the Throne are powerful godspawn who have become trapped in places they want to escape.
In Traitor to the Throne and The Valiant, powerful heroines are captured against their will and taken away from their beloved homes and families to the capital city of their lands. There they are pressed into service to the ruler.
Both The Valiant and Thick as Thieves center around empire slaves - the former character goes towards that life, the latter, away from it - who take long journeys where friendships are formed and their perspectives on their world is changed.
See any connections that I missed?
Have you read any of these books recently? Which were your favorites?
