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
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
Because Atticus Finch reminds us to always be kind.
Paper Towns – John Green
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
Because I’ll need a friend to keep me company on the island.
Infinite Jest – David Foster Wallace
Because maybe the long stretches of uninterrupted time will make me FINALLY read this one. It’s suuuuuuupppperrr long.
Any mystery by Sophie Hannah
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
Because of the romance.
The Diviners – Libba Bray
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
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
Because Amy makes everything better.

Why Not Me? would be a great book to have with you. You’d feel like you had a friend with you and you’d laugh a lot! 🙂 Great choice.

Just give me Mindy Kaling herself on the deserted island instead of the book because if I’m going to die, mind as well enjoy the nonsense that is Kaling’s brain while I’m withering away hah.
