Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week we are discussing books that we want to be stranded with on a desert island! I have quite a few for this so I’ve managed to narrow it down to 5 with extensive reasons as to why I want to bring these with me.
1 – IT by Stephen King. I’ve chosen to bring this one with me because to be honest I have been trying to read this book for about 4 years now and I just for whatever reason cannot. And I thought, hey, I’m stuck on a desert island with absolutely NO REASON not to read this book, so why not take it with you and actually read it!
2 – The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris. This is one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE books in the whole entire universe, one I never get tired of reading, so of course it’s in my bag when they decide to drop me off at some random island and leave me there forever.
3 – The PJO series by Rick Riordan. I will never get bored of reading these books, they bring so much joy and light to my life. They are perfect for when you need to give yourself a happiness boost! Plus, the chapter headings alone are enough to give you those laughs that keep going until you’re crying, which is a reason enough for me to bring these with me.
4 – Wicked series by Piper Lawson. Ya girl is stranded for fucks sake, I need something to keep me entertained and bring some excitement to my life!
5 – How to Survive on a Deserted Island by Tim O’Shei. Now I haven’t read this one (as I don’t plan on ever getting stuck on an island) but the title alone is enough to make me want to bring it along, if nothing else it will give me something to read when I’ve gotten through the rest of my books haha.
And there are my 5 books I will be taking with me when the aliens decide to transport me to the nearest deserted island!
Until next time, Em xxx
