Six Degrees of Separation: Wolfe Island to Snake Island

Hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest, on the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form Six Degrees of Separation. Readers and bloggers are invited to join in by creating their own ‘chain’ leading from the selected book.

 

I thought it would be fun to go Island hopping this month, shall we?

This month we begin with Wolfe Island by Lucy Treloar, which is set off the north east coast of the United States.

It’s a short hop from there to Haiti which is the setting of The Island on the Edge of the World by Deborah Rodriguez.

Take a leisurely boat ride around the rest of the West Indies which is the area in which The House on Hummingbird Island by Sam Angus takes place.

From there, it’s a long jump across the pond to Hy Brasil, a tiny island off the coast of Ireland, where Ellie O’Neill sets The Enchanted Island.

 

The setting of Ember Island by Kimberley Freeman moves between The English Channel Islands in the UK and a small island off the coast of Queensland, Australia, in the region of Moreton Bay.

Since you’ve come all this way, head to the most northern point of Queensland and you’ll find Thursday Island, the setting of My Island Homicide by Catherine Titasey.

For the final leg of the journey follow Australia’s east coast all the way south to Victoria and visit Snake Island with Ben Hobson.

It might not be the most picturesque place to leave you, but feel free to keep hopping , there are plenty more islands in the sea!

    I am such a fan of this meme and all of you who do it so well. I am really impressed by how many books you have read across so many different settings. I try to read outside the US and Europe, but it doesn’t happen often.

    Looks like lots of people went the island route, but no one has the same books! How cool is that?

    I’ve never seen Six Degrees of Separation before, what a fun idea! I’ve not read any of these island books but I’ve now added some to my Goodreads TBR. It’s nice to escape to a tropical island through fiction now and again.

    I don’t think I could do this meme justice, but I love reading the posts of people who do! This is amazing.

    Island hopping is a great idea. So many different themes this month! (Well, I guess every month, but there were strong themes this month.)

    You can never have too many islands to hop, right?

    Liked your island hopping. I did this, too. I enjoy Kimberley Freeman’s books. Adding Ember Island to my TBR.
