6 Degrees of Separation – Like Water For Chocolate

Better late then never! I finally got around to playing this month’s 6 degrees of separation! My chain took a nostalgic turn and has a lot of kids books.  See for your self below!

For those of you that don’t know: 6 Degrees of Separation is a monthly post hosted by Books are my Favorite and Best.  They pick a book to start you off, and then you list the next book that comes to mind, then you go from that book to another book, creating a chain. You do this 6 times (so you have 7 books including the one you started with).

If you missed my past “6 Degrees of Separation” posts here they are:

This month’s starter is Like Water For Chocolate

1. Like Water For Chocolate


I have never read this book and probably never will, but the title reminds me of Water for Elephants, which is another book I will probably never read.

2. Water for Elephants


When I was a kid I collected Elephant figurines.  My mom chose them for me when I was born.  She chose lambs for my sister.  I just realized that my little brother doesn’t have a “mom-chosen” collection, but right now he is collecting Pokemon cards.  He has a LOT.  His favorite book is a Pokemon Handbook

3. Pokemon Essentials Handbook


That might not be the exact cover he has, but its similar enough.  I bought it for him so you would think I would know, but I don’t don’t.  When I was about his age, my favorite books were the babysitter club books.

4. The Baby-Sitters Club #1: Kristy’s Great Idea


Side note: Apparently they have made some of the Babysitters Club books into graphic novels, so that is weird.

The original Author, Ann M. Martin, wrote the first 35 books in the series, and the rest were written by other people.  As far as I can tell there are 130 total books in the series.  That is a crazy amount of books.  I probably owned 25 or so Babysitters Club Books when I was younger.

Another Series I read that had a lot of books is the Stephanie Plum Series

5. One for the Money


There are only 24 of these books but at one point I owned 1-17, plus all the random holiday specials.

Speaking of holidays and since it is almost Halloween:

6. Corduroy’s Halloween


Corduroy’s Halloween was my favorite Halloween book.  My favorite Christmas book was:

7. The Snow Tree


From Like Water For Chocolate to Snow Tree, my chain this month had a lot of kids books, but it was nice to take a trip down memory lane!

As always, I love this post and had so much fun making it! Let me know what you think and what books your chain included!
