Bookwyrm did another 6Degree Post and it reminded me I should do one too.
Starting with this book, lets see where we end up! (obviously, you know beforehand because of the title. I didn’t know where I was going to end up, so pretend you didn’t see the title and act completely surprised, please.)
A Christmas Carol. The edition I read has a cover composed primarily of the colors Green and Red, appropriate for a Christmas book don’t you think?
A series that is ALL ABOUT colors is the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks. I’ve been waiting for the final book since The Blood Mirror came out in ’16. The Burning White, the fifth and final book, is supposed to come next year. May it be so!
A book that I have read that I was waiting for was Sergei Lukyanenko’s Sixth Watch. Thankfully, I didn’t start the Night Watch series until 2015, so I only had a year to wait. My goodness, what great Russian Urban Fantasy.
I don’t like Urban Fantasy. Most of the time. Mainly because I’ve had more run-ins with books like Bitter Night than the types of UF that I end up liking. Totally not cool.
A “cool” book that I did read was Dr. Zhivago. And we’re talking Siberian Exile cold here, not just your every day Snoopy in Joe Cool sunglasses!
Now, when I think of “Sunglasses” only ONE thing comes to mind. Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator!!! While the book wasn’t as awesome as the movie, it still was decent enough.
My goodness, from A Christmas Carol to The Terminator sounds like a title of a Dr. Who Christmas special. You know, back when Dr. Who was awesome with David Tennant? 😉
I’m beginning to think that I like this whole 6th Degree tag thing. I foresee it becoming a semi-regular feature here. Easy peasy and lets me talk nonsense without appearing like a complete idiot. Cheers!
