So my brother called to say he was considering Costa Rica as the destination for his next vacation. After we finished our call, I picked up B is for Beer, and lo and behold, one of the characters moves to Costa Rica!
B is for Beer -> The Hunger Games: Both books feature an area called “The Seam.”
A Cold Case -> Nobody Move: Both books, one true crime, the other fiction, feature a character who pretends to cough or blow his nose into a handkerchief to disguise his face when leaving a building.
So Long, See You Tomorrow -> The Ghosty Men: Both books, one fiction, the other non-fiction, are based on newspaper stories from the early 20th century.
I also found So Long, See You Tomorrow very topical, because the beginning of the book talks about the protagonist’s attitude toward his stepmother when he was a child. It’s funny how the right book will appear at the right time.
It truly does trip me out how often I can read two books on consecutive days, and they will have something really random in common.
