Six Degrees of Separation: The Night Circus to The Martian

Six Degrees of Separation is a monthly blog event hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest. 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 a wild card, the book we finished last month’s chain with!


I ended last month’s chain with The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This is one of my all-time favorite books. It’s romantic, magical, and feels good. The main characters are Marco and Celia, magicians compelled to compete in a battle of magic, but they don’t know the rules or when the battle ends. If you haven’t read it, do yourself a favor and do. Another favorite book with a main character names Marco is…

Animorphs by K.A. Applegate. … Bahahahahaha. You didn’t see that coming! This was my favorite series as a kid. There are over sixty books, and I have them all. It’s an alien invasion story, which is always fine in my book. Plus, the kids can turn into animals. So on-brand for ten-year-old me! Another book written from lots of different points of view is…

The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon. Another hard left turn. This monster of a book has so many points of view that at one point I had a hard time keeping track of them all. But boy, is it brilliant! Not your typical fantasy, that’s for sure. Plus, dragons. I highly recommend for lovers of fantasy! Another book about dragons that I love is…

His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik. Not as well known as Uprooted, but I believe this is actually her first series. Its a delightful mix of fantasy and historical fiction. I didn’t read the whole series (ain’t nobody got time for that!), but loved the three books I did read. Another series I didn’t finish despite loving is…

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. Ender’s Game and Ender’s Shadow are my two favorite SciFi books ever. But … I just didn’t really care to delve deeper into either series. I felt they stood fine on their own. I know, what a shock. A fantastic SciFi novel that actually stands alone is..

The Martian by Andy Weir. Have I used this one before? Don’t know. Hm. What a fun book! The Martian is entertaining as heck while also being incredibly well researched and thought-through. Though maybe only moderately plausible…

So there you have it! The Night Circus to The Martian!

Thanks, once again, to Kate for hosting. This is such a fun blog event, especially considering how much I like to play the actual Kevin Bacon game. 🙂
