Top Ten Tuesday- Books I'd Want on an Island

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (November 13th) I'm one of them :)

This weeks topic is:

Top Ten Books I'd Want On A Deserted Island

Books that make me happy:
Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty
20 Times A Lady by Karyn Bosnak
Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
The Dirt by Motley Crue

Books that I love:
Harry Potter 1-7 by JK Rowling
Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

Books that make me think:
Scar Tissue by Kiedis
The Time Travelers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

A book I haven't read but think could be useful in the wild:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

A Book I'm NOT taking:
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green- Can you imagine reading this when you already know you have a good possibility of dying in the near future??

A book like the Complete History of the World because it would keep you busy :)


  1. Loved seeing your choices! :) Here's my TTT: http://aliceinreaderland.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/top-ten-books-id-want-on-a-deserted-island/

  2. The time traveler's wife would be good. You could read it really slowly and draw timelines and what not and actually work out what on earth is going on.
    Here's my list:

  3. You haven't read The Hunger Games? You are honestly the first person I know to say they haven't read The Hunger Games!!! I like your choices! (:

    1. LOL I KNOW I'm crazy I haven't read The Hunger Games! And I have the book! It's just not really my type of book (but I will get to it one day)

  4. I'm definitely taking Harry Potter with me! Even if that means they count as seven books I would still take them! Great list!

    My TTT

  5. you haven't read hunger games, omg! yup that is a survival book for sure! great picks! Check out our TTT ~ Katie @ Inkk

  6. The Hunger Games can come in handy! And you can't go to an island without Harry Potter :D


  7. Where the Sidewalk Ends is a good one. And I've never read the Time Traveler's Wife, but I saw the movie and loved it. Great list! :D My TTTs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Tuesday! :D

  8. I too would be an absolute mess if I tried to read TFIOS on a desert island.

    Where The Sidewalk Ends however would definitely be a good choice on a desert island!:)

    ~Allison @ Good Books and Good Wine

  9. Awesome choices! Harry Potter is a must! (:

  10. Haha. I loved The Fault in Our Stars, but I definitely wouldn't want it on a deserted island. Way too sad.

    Thanks for sharing :)
