This month, the starting book is Memoirs of a Geisha.
I love this book! It's definitely one of my all time favorites. I think the movie could have been a lot better though, which brings me to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy because that movie was a major flop.
Again, another favorite book. This book takes place in England, which brings me to my third book...Pride and Prejudice.
What a great romance! As long as we're on the topic of terrific romances, please allow me to call up my favorite author, Neil Gaiman and the beautiful love of Tristran and Yvaine in Stardust.
I love Gaiman's ability to create wonderful worlds. He is such a skilled author. Lately, there has been a lot of talk about his book, Coraline, in my classroom.
Now, Coraline is a terrific book that involves a very horrific villain, the Beldam. Now, the last book doesn't have a beldam, but it does have a pretty scary monster.
And that, ladies and gents, is how we get from Memoirs of a Geisha to A Monster Calls through six degrees of separation.
