Top Ten Tuesday – November 13, 2012: Top Ten Books I’d Want On A Deserted Island

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.

(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! 🙂

    Great list.

  2. Hollie @ Music, Books and Tea

    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!

    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!

  4. Jenny

    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!

  5. Quinn

    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!!

  6. Kelsey

    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 🙂

    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 🙂
