Six Degrees of Separation: The Dry to Let it Snow

Six Degrees of Separation is a monthly blog event hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavoriteandbest. It’s inspired by the 6 Degrees of Separation, a movie game where you attempt to connect actors in six movies or less. But we do it with books!

This month we’re starting with The Dry by Jane Harper

I know literally NOTHING about The Dry! It is a thriller/mystery/crime/something, and it was the author’s first novel. That’s all I got. So I’m doing a title connection to…

Whiskey When We’re Dry by John Larison. Which, incidentally, is also a debut with a similar setting/atmosphere. Whiskey When We’re Dry is an LGBTQ historical Western, and my first dip into that genre. Another historical novel with a western vibe and LGBTQ character is…

Dread Nation by Justina Ireland. Although, full disclosure, I felt the single LGBTQ passage to be inauthentic lip-service. You can read my full review here. Still, it was a fun enough book women kicking some zombie butt. Which, obviously, leads me to…

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith. Honestly, y’all, I only made it a couple of chapters into this book. It was such a cool idea, but I didn’t feel like he executed it very well. I adored the passages where he nearly word-for-word quoted Austen, but then he would just drop her language completely and lost my interest. Another classic re-telling with a paranormal twist is…

My Plain Jane by The Lady Janies. While not quite as good as My Lady Jane, this book was plenty fun. If you’ve been looking for a ghost story and you like YA, you would probably be into this book. Another book written by multiple authors collaborating is…

Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. Which, amazingly, I know absolutely nothing about except that John Green and Maureen Johnson are involved. So that just brings us right back to The Dry.

So, there you have it! The Dry to The Dry.

Ah, I do love it when I come full circle like that. It’s almost like I planned it. Which, I assure you, I did not. It’s also funny how I managed to write an entire Six Degrees talking about books I didn’t enjoy all that much… Weird.

Can’t wait to see everyone else’s chains! Thanks as always to Kate for hosting!

  1. Great chain! I didn’t know anything about The Dry either when I starting prepping my 6 post. Lol. General sentiment really seeems to be against my plain Jane. I already have a copy so I’ll get it , just maybe not in a rush!
