TTT REWIND: Books I’d Want on a Desert Island

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday REWIND, hosted by the lovely folks at The Broke and The Bookish. This week we were invited to take a step back in time and choose an old TTT topic. I went for the subject of the second Top Ten Tuesday ever: books to take to a desert island.

(that I chose it just because it’s the second on the list is something I will deny)

The Harry Potter series – JK Rowling

harry potter

Because books about magic, defeating evil and growing up are exactly the sort of thing I’d need to pass the days.

To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee

to kill a mockingbird

Because Atticus Finch reminds us to always be kind.

Paper Towns – John Green

paper towns

Because we must imagine people complexly (especially when on a desert island. Don’t want to go getting too self obsessed).

Why Not Me? – Mindy Kaling

why not me

Because I’ll need a friend to keep me company on the island.

Infinite Jest – David Foster Wallace

infinite jest

Because maybe the long stretches of uninterrupted time will make me FINALLY read this one. It’s suuuuuuupppperrr long.

Any mystery by Sophie Hannah

the other half lives

Because who doesn’t enjoy a sexually frustrated detective and a mystery so full of twists it’ll leave you dizzy?

First and Then – Emma Mills

first and then

Because of the romance.

The Diviners – Libba Bray

the diviners 2

Because of the richly imagined world of 1920s New York. When I read this book, I time travel.

The Shades of London series – Maureen Johnson

the name of the star

Because sometimes when you’re stressed – which, even on a desert island, I imagine I would be – you just need a paranormal read to get you through.

Yes Please – Amy Poehler

yes please

Because Amy makes everything better.
