Top 10 Tuesday (22)

Top 10 books I want on a deserted island.

Let’s hope that it will never get that far, but if I end up alone on a deserted island, these are the books I want to have:

The oldies, because I want something that feels like home.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)The Book Thief Wildwood Dancing (Wildwood, #1)
      

 One of my favourites, so I can forget the world around me for some time.        
Tiger Lily

The kick-ass, to get some strength when things get tough.
IncarnationThe Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)

The survivals, to remind me that the situation can be much worse.
Divergent (Divergent, #1)The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #1)


A cheesy book, because I need to remind myself why I want to survive.
I would take a photo album with me, so I can look at the pictures from my friends, my family and my amazing boyfriend. This will help me through the days; to keep hope that I will return to them.

  2. PS LOVE the rest of your blog! We have scarily similar taste...The Tudors?!? I thought I was alone! Have you read The Cousins' War series (that might be a stupid question) but the Plantagenets are slowly surpassing The Tudors in my love...weird, I know!

  3. Nice list! It was so hard choosing only one HP book to take; we went with Deathly Hallows, but OotP is also one of my favorites. Great idea with taking a photo album, too! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I totally agree on Divergent!! and Harry Potter of course! I would add The Host by Stephenie Meyer, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.. annnnd i dunno.. but a photo album would hurt too much :(

  11. I love the photo album idea, I'd definitely need one of those to keep me sane! I couldn't choose one Harry Potter book so I went for the entire series! (And counted it as one book...) Great list!

    My Top Ten

  19. This Top Ten sounds so much like me! If only this island weren't deserted we could have been deserted island buds!

    Lol, I actually still need to read Tiger Lily. Now that I know it's one of your favorites I definitely have to bump it up on my TBR list. :]

  20. Thanks for stopping by my TT! I couldn't choose just one Harry Potter book so I just left it off entirely! Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can't believe I left The Book Thief off my list, I would probably be kicking myself later. Great top ten!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Harry Potter is a must! Loved both Tiger Lily and the Book Thief as well.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great list but I am not sure I could read Forest of Hand and Teeth on an Island. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Great list! I alllmost added Harry Potter. The Immortal Rules and Divergent are great choices!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Cool list! I'm bringing HP too!!! I am reading Tigerlily soon for Project Fairy Tale and am really excited because it sounds good!! Thanks for stopping by My TTT :)

  26. Hey there! I'd take Harry Potter with me, too - as pretty much everyone else :) But I should have thought of things like strength and survival, too - instead of just packing books that would distract me from starving... :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I would defo want The Book Thief with me on an island, too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ooh Tiger Lilly! I can't believe I haven't read it yet and I have had it since it came out! >.< Also, love Forest of Hands and Teeth series! :D

    ReplyDelete
  29. YEAH! Loved Divergent and The Immortal Rules. Girls that are kickass are always favorites, and reading about them would be good on an island - they'd inspire me to survive:) Fantastic choices Mel!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love your taste Mel!! :) Seriously. I love Wilwood Dancing and your tough girl picks and the dystopian/zombie picks! I would probably bring some sort of survival guide with me! What to eat.. what not and how to light a fire haha

    ReplyDelete
  31. Amazing list, Mel! This one must be my favourite yet. Harry Potter is a MUST, of course, and I would also love to take Divergent and Throne of Glass, two of my favourite books. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I haven't read all of these, especially Harry Potter, Divergent, and Throne of Glass. Great list!

    Thanks for stopping by :)

  33. This is such a great list. I just finished Divergent and loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. The photo album is such a sweet one to include and not one I've seen on other lists!

    Throne of Glass was fantastic and I can't wait to read more in that series!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I didn't even think of Tiger Lily & Divergent. Love those books! Great list =)
