Six Degrees of Separation - from Shopgirl to Never Let Me Go

Well this month's meme was a challenge for Muse & Views Bookclub members.  Here is our participation and again (don't know how long we will be able to chose only from our reading list) all from our reading list with the exception of Shopgirl.

Shopgirl  by Steve Martin

"Lonely, depressed, Vermont transplant Mirabelle Buttersfield, who sells expensive evening gloves nobody ever buys at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills and spends her evenings watching television with her two cats. She attempts to forge a relationship with middle-aged, womanizing, Seattle millionaire Ray Porter while being pursued by socially inept and unambitious slacker Jeremy." (Taken from Goodreads)

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

A young woman from a poor background in a large city full of money, gets involved with a multi-millionaire from Upper East Side in the 1930’s .  Not all is great and good in High Society

Clara Callan by Richard B. Wright (read in 2002)

Tale of  two sisters in the 1930’s one who goes to find her fortune in New York city and discovers that not all can be great and good in high society .

My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult (read in 2006)

Here is another story about sisters, this one much more troubling.

The Language of Sisters by Amy Yurk (read in 2004)

One sister finds herself helping a disabled sister, despite her misgivings. 

The Boy in the Moon By Ian Brown

When and how we came into this world, has an impact on us and those around us and society.

There it is.  Those without a link were read before we began the blog. If you would like to see the links others have found beginning with Shopgirl, go to the blog Six Degrees of Separation.

  1. I just love the fact that you do this as a group and from what you've read as a group (but can imagine that is challenging!).

    I enjoyed the Rules of Civility so much and equally Never Let Me Go (which we actually used as a starting book last year).
