The wonderful Jim ( @YAYeahYeah ) has invited everyone to join in with a YA/MG focused version of the fantastic #6degrees meme, started by Emma Chapman and Annabel Smith over on his blog www.yayeahyeah.com
So the idea of 6 Degrees is to post a chain of 6 books, starting with the book that Jim has nominated for that month and from there a list of 5 more books with each successive pair linked together by a different connection!
Sounds fun right?!
Jim kicked off this months today – you can find his post here
And the book nominated to start from this month is…..
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
We are all encouraged to create our own and link up at the bottom of this post
Jim also has some fab guest posts lined up throughout the month so don’t miss those!
I can’t wait to see everyone’s choices!
So here goes……
You will be shocked to find out that I have never read Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I started it last year and was really enjoying it and I don’t know why I have never finished it! I think I got distracted by something shiny! Either way I will be picking it up again soon especially after reading Rainbow’s world book day book, Kindred Spirit along with Spot The Difference by Juno Dawson.
I loved this World Book Day short story Spot The Difference by Juno Dawson. Juno is one of my favourite UKYA authors and I was excited to hear that Juno will be featuring another short story in a UKYA anthology in September called I’ll Be Home For Christmas published by Stripes to raise money for the charity Crisis. Another author to feature in the upcoming anthology is another favourite of mine Non Pratt author of Remix.
Remix by Non Pratt was one of my favourite books of 2015. Set at a music festival I experienced the highs and lows of a friendship, love and laughter and how best friends know each other better than they know themselves. It’s a story of friendship and how special and amazing that can be. I love books about friendship and that is why I am super excited to hurry up and read Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard.
Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard has been sitting on my TBR pile for far to long and I really must pick this up to read soon! I have heard so many amazing things about this book and loved hearing more about it when I was lucky enough to visit the Pan Macmillan offices back in December. Another upcoming book being published by Pan Macmillan that I am really excited about is Kill The Boyband by Goldy Moldavsky.
Kill The Boyband by Goldy Moldavsky is released in May and I am lucky enough to have received a proof copy through the post this week. I have heard really great things about this book which is a fictional story about a group of fan girls, modern fandom and a boyband. All this talk of fan girls, boy bands and fandom makes me think of my lovely friend, author Keris Stainton, so I’m going to finish of with her book in her honour, Counting Stars.
*sends a Harry Styles gif to Keris*
it appears I’ve accidentally gone from one fangirl to another 😉
So there you have it!
