Top Ten Books I'd Want on a Deserted Island

Hosted over at the Broke and Bookish

So I suppose, for practicality's sake, I should have a couple of How to Survive on a Deserted Island books, but what the heck, let's just pretend I already know how to do that already because if I didn't I highly doubt I'd survive long enough to even read these ten books....

Chunky/Time-consuming books:
The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling--this might be cheating because it's an entire series, but oh well!

The Bible--...because it's The Bible! And I haven't read it yet, so why NOT do it on a deserted island?

[Insert notoriously famous classic]--i.e.: The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, A Tale of Two Cities by Dickens, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, etc.

Light-hearted romances:
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins--Paris + Etienne = best chick-lit ever.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen--Humor. So much wit. And MR. FREAKING DARCY. Need I say more? 

ANY book by Sarah Dessen--though my main favorites are This Lullaby, The Truth About Forever, and Just Listen (okay, maybe not so light-hearted, but there's romance! And I love re-reading these!)

Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan--this series is made of awesomesauce. I could re-read Percy's one-liners all day!

The Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter--hilarious and full of covert missions!

Books that give me ALL THE FEELS
The Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta--I haven't even read the last book yet and I don't know if my heart can take it!

The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare--You guys must have seen this coming.... I mean, I need my daily dose of Will Herondale, even if I'm on a deserted island!

Well, those are my top ten books. What are yours? Please leave me a link or just tell me in the comments; I'd love to know! :)

Also, if you're new to my blog, feel free to enter my blogoversary giveaway and a giveaway of Wingless and its sequel by Cydney Lawson!

  2. The chunky time-consuming ones are good choices to keep you occupied for a long time; my list has a few of those:

  3. Few follower here. Great list. Cant go wrong with Sarah Dessen. Feel free to checkout my TTT

  4. Great choices. I had to limit myself on 10 but I see a few I'd like to take with me from your list as well.

    My TTT

  5. Harry Potter! Even if I could bring only those 7 books with me, it would be fine :p Can't live without a bit of HP.


  6. I could NEVER leave behind either Finnikin of the Rock or The Infernal Devices, even if it meant taking them in the place of some survival guides!

  7. I love your list! Some really great choices that I have as well.

  8. Ah, Anna and the French Kiss and Dessen books--some of the best! Thanks for stopping by!
