It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by the wonderful blog at The Broke and the Bookish!
This Week’s Topic is: Top Ten Books I’d Want On A Deserted Island
So these books will be my bread & butter – The books I could read over and over and over and over again. Easy peasy.
MY TOP TEN DESERT ISLAND CHOICES
(in no particular order)
There you have it!
Honorable mention: The Princess Bride (but I know the movie by heart)
Wow, this was actually really hard! I went through my Goodreads favorites list and came up with these top 10 books that I could read forever. I’m actually surprised that so many were contemporary! Way to go, contemp for becoming more abundant in my life 🙂

Anna and the French Kiss I keep seeing everywhere! I think I need to read it soon. Along with Tiger Lily. They both look really good! 🙂
The Stephanie Plum books would definitely cheer me up while waiting for rescue!
I’m a new follower 😀 Here is my TTT
Love Harry Potter, have heard great things about the ‘Sky is Everywhere’ Great choices 🙂
LOVED Tiger Lily and Anna and the French Kiss was on my list as well.
I saw princess bride on another list. I think I have it memorized too. I like the Giver, that would give lots of excellent perspective on my new society that I’d obviously be creating…
Harry and The Hunger Games are a big hit on everyones list!
I really need to read Anna and the French Kiss. My TBR pile is getting to big 🙂
Great list! I love Stephanie Plum, Harry Potter, and The Giver. Excellent choices.
Every list I look at I find another book that I forgot to include on mine! I loved The Sky is Everywhere and Anna and the French Kiss, and I can’t believe I forgot to include them on my list! (Although if I included every single book I’d forgotten I’d be well into the 100’s by now…) Great list!
Ooh, the Spellman files is a GREAT choice!! And the Hunger Games, what a great book for a desert island!
Awesome list! I totally need to read Anna and the French Kiss and the Giver. 😀 My TTTs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Tuesday! 😀
I might also have to sneak in the Spellmans and Stephanie Plum, but I don’t know that I could pick one out of either series. I am really afraid of being on a desert island NEVER knowing what happens next to my favorite characters!
Oh yes, I’d like to have Anna and the French Kiss on the island with me too! That book just makes me so happy, and I think I’d need a book like it if I was all alone on an island. It would keep my spirits up:) Such a fun category this week!
I almost included Anna and the French Kiss on my list, too. But I definitely wanted Meg Cabot, And they are kind of similar. Well, I mean, they kind of make me feel the same (sort of). I don’t know what I’m trying to say 🙂
Heck yeah to HP!!
A bunch of great picks! Anna and Hunger Games would definitely have to be om mine! I had never heard of The Giver until you had it on a Deja Vu, now I am seeing it EVERYWHERE! This is one I am going to have to read soon. No TTT for me this week, only a teaser for Girl of Nightmares.

great list, HBP is my fave, too. i put the whole series, but if i couldn’t do that, i would take 3-7.
Same here! I’m a 4-7 kinda girl.
Yea for Perkins & the happiness she brings us.
I am going to read One For the Money this year. Dang it!!!
Anna and the French Kiss would be a great one to read! If I owned a copy it would have been on my list, I stuck to ones that were on my shelf only 🙂
I borrowed it from the library but I really want my own copy now! 🙂
I would take HP too – all of them. They’re big & interesting – 2 things I would look for in a book.
Fun category. This is going to be challenging because my books are all in storage so I have to go by memory (which at my age is faulty). I would take Ellen Emerson White’s The President’s Daughter series (four books), Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible, Anna & the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle, We Are In A Book! by Mo Willems, and Plain Kate by Erin Bow. There are more, but these are the ones that came to me first. 🙂
How could I leave the Princess Bride off my list? It’s my all time favourite book. I have half a dozen different editions and when my dvd broke I was devastated and had to replace it… a little obsessive perhaps… /shifty
I started reading Anna and the French kiss yesterday and I’m really enjoying it so far. I can understand why you’ve put it on your list.
One for the Money is a great one too – I love Morelli and Stephanie in that book. The movie… no so great but the book I can (and have) read over and over again.
Great list 🙂
