from Notes on a Scandal to Anne of Green Gables
#6Degrees is a monthly link-up hosted by Kate at Books Are My Favourite and Best. I love the idea. Thank you, Kate. See more about this challenge, its history, further books and how I found this here.
I have never read this book but I noticed that it contained a word that I found in other titles, so I tried to go back to the good old work chain this mongh. And it worked.
Bryson, Bill "Notes from a Small Island" - 1995
My first book by one of my favourite writers about one of my favourite places in the world (even though they have left the EU in the meantime, but I hope they will find out that was a mistake and come back).
Allende, Isabel "Island Beneath the Sea" (E: La isla bajo el mar) - 2010
Life on a plantation, first in the Caribbean, later in Louisiana, the life of the slaves and the free, lots of history.
Benali, Abdelkader "Wedding by the Sea" (NL: Bruiloft aan zee) - 1996
The story about someone growing up in the Netherlands seeing life in Morocco from the outside.
McCall Smith, Alexander "The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency" - "The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party" - 2011
This one was a lot harder to find but there is a book in a series that I like that had the word wedding in the title because - well, there was a wedding in that one.
Ulitzkaya, Lyudmila "Imago" or "The Big Green Tent" (RUS: Зеленый шатер = Zelenyi shater) - 2010
A new, modern Russian author. She describes life in the Soviet Union and begins with the death of Stalin and what it meant for the people and how their lives went on after that. I don't think it's a big spoiler if I tell you that it's not getting any better.
Montgomery, L. M. "Anne of Green Gables" - 1908
Green is an easy book to find. Who doesn't know Anne Shirley?
