Top Ten Tuesday: Deserted Island

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic:

Top Ten Books I'd Want on a Deserted Island:
I've included series and indulged in some lumping. It's my list and I'll cheat if I want to!
I feel like I repeat myself a lot on these lists...but some things will NEVER change. Like my absolute unending love for #1...
1. HARRY POTTER SERIES (J.K. Rowling)- Yeah. I think that's all that needs to be said.
Harry Potter Boxset
2. The Princess Diaries Series (Meg Cabot)- I figure if I'm on a deserted island I'm gonna need to find ways to lighten the mood. This series would DEF accomplish that.
The Princess Diaries Collection (The Princess Diaries, #1-8)
3. Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Laini Taylor)- I figure I need a book to get my mind off of my vampire skin peeling off and the bugs feasting on my flesh. What better way to do that then one of the most amazing books I've ever read.
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)
4. Dash & Lily's Book of Dares (David Levithan & Rachel Cohn)- A way to bring a little snow to my island of tropic.
Dash & Lily's Book of Dares
5. Black Dagger Brotherhood Series (J.R. Ward) and Vampire Academy Series (Richelle Mead)- I've lumped these 2 series together because both include my favorite creature of the night: VAMPIRES. I LOVE both of these series for different reasons. The first one offers a bit more heat and the second is just...oohh so good.
Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1)Black Dagger Brotherhood Collection (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1-9)
6. Graceling (Kristen Cashore) and Poison Study Series (Maria V. Snyder)- I've lumped these amazing books together because they both contain awesome kick-ass heroines that I could learn a thing or 2 from. ALSO PO AND VALEK.
Graceling (Graceling Realm, #1)Study Trilogy Collection: Poison Study, Magic Study, Fire Study
7. A Song of Ice & Fire Series (George R.R. Martin)- Since I'm gonna have a little free time..
A Song of Ice and Fire, Books 1-4 (A Game of Thrones / A Feast for Crows / A Storm of Swords / Clash of Kings)
8. Blank journals/pens/pencils- So I can write my own book!
9. BIBLE-I figure I'm going to need a little reassurance and comfort that I'm not completely alone.
10. SAS Survival Handbook: How to survive in the Wild, in any Climate, on Land or at Sea- I mean, it had to be done. I need to know how to turn my pee into drinking water and how to make a shelter out of a toothpick.
SAS Survival Handbook: How to Survive in the Wild, in Any Climate, on Land or at Sea
These might be handy as well:
Desert Island Fishing
Hut Making 101
211 Recipes for Coconuts and Fish
So who cares if my 10 books actually turned in to almost 40. I NEED them ALL!
Leave a link with your list in the comments so I can come visit!


  1. Wow you have a GREAT list here! Having the complete Harry Potter, Vampire Academy and Princess Diaries sets would almost make being on a deserted island kind of enjoyable.

  2. I've started Graceling and super loving it, so I'd probably have it with me however I got to the island :D Great list!

    I'm a new follower :D Here is my TTT

  3. I love your list! HP, Graceling, and the journals would all be a must! I haven't read Daughter of Smoke and Bone but I'm dying to.
