Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Want On A Deserted Island

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week's topic is going to the roughest. I love so many books and would want all of my favorites with me. Especially when it comes to series. I would want to bring every book of the series with me, but I will try my hardest not to cheat. No matter how much I want to!

1. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
I am so in love with this book. And if I was stuck on a deserted island all by myself, I would definitely need this book to keep me in good spirits.

2. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
I would have to bring at least one book by Clare, and I chose the one where everyone gets at least a semi happy ending. Before she decided to keep writing more books and continuing to break my heart all the damn time.

3. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
This is my favorite Neil Gaiman book so far. I feel like I could read it a thousand times and never get bored. That's just the sort of books he writes. Love em.

4. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkins
Another book where I wouldn't get bored. I could read about the amazing Noah Shaw for the rest of my life. Oh am I on a deserted island? I didn't notice because NOAH SHAW.

5. Imaginary Girls by Nova Rev Suma
Imaginary Girls drew me in so completely that I forgot where I was every time I opened it. I am positive that it would do the same again. This book is a whole new world that dazzle me completely. It would be the perfect escape on an island.

6. Atonement by Ian McEwan
Every time I read this book, the world fades away. And then I want to die. This book would be a book to read when I'm sad and have lost hope to remind me, Hey. It could be worse.

7. Looking For Alaska by John Green
John Green is just amazing. I can't imagine never being able to read one of his books again. Having it there would be a must.

8. Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
This would be such a cute distraction to have. Amy and Roger's is just the cutest book and I could read it again and again.

9. Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton
This will always be my favorite series. Anita Blake has a permanent place in my heart. If I was stuck on an island, I would need her. I could read the beginning of her story every day for the rest of ever. It's a must have.

10. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
For when I'm in more of a serious mood. It's my favorite classic novels and I've never had time to reread it. There are just so many books! But I would be able to give it the time it deserved if I only had ten books to read for the rest of time!


I am excited to see what everyone else chose! Do we have any books in common? Make sure to leave me a link to your Top Ten!

I still really, really need to read Anna and the French Kiss; I've been hearing so many good things about it! :) Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

Annabel said...

Oh, Atonement, no! It's such a painful novel. But Pride and Prejudice is a great choice - a bit of humour, a bit of darma, a bit of romance...sigh! I've seen it on quite a few lists.
Here's my list:

Lee @ Rally the Readers said...

Awesome list! I love Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, and Anna and the French Kiss. I completely agree that you have to bring at least one Cassandra Clare book with you, too. :)

Thanks for stopping by and following! Following you back via GFC.

Ohhh bringing Neverwhere would be brilliant - Gaiman is so evocative, you could imagine yourself in rainy London instead of on your deserted beach, getting yet another sunburn...

Hollie said...

Amy and Roger made my list too! It's only just hit me that I didn't include a single John Green book on my list, and now I feel really annoyed with myself haha! Great list.
