The #6degrees meme is hosted at Books are my Favourite and Best.
This month the chain begins with Redhead at the Side of the Road by Anne Tyler. I have only read one book by Anne Tyler, Vinegar Girl, so I am starting my chain with that. It is a retelling of "Taming of the Shrew" and is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare series. Another book in that series is Hag-Seed, Margaret Atwood's retelling of "The Tempest" which she sets in a prison. Another novel by Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin, continues the chain. It is a brilliant and complex novel which is told by a woman about her sister. Another novel where one sister narrates the life of another is My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite which was a great book. One of the threads of that story deals with the question of how much sisters can be expected to sacrifice for each other. Jodi Piccoult's My Sister's Keeper wrestles with the same question.I will wrap up this chain with another book about sisters and which also has a Shakespeare connection. Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown is a story about the daughters of a Shakespeare scholar who are sorting out the difficulties of being adults. It was not deep, but I definitely enjoyed it.
