Hey guys, it’s Tuesday again so it means it’s time for Top Ten Tuesday. Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is ten books that I would want to be stranded on a desert island with. I had a hard time narrowing down this list as there are so many books that I cannot live without, but I did manage it which I am very proud about.
I’ve only gone for stand-alone as I know the temptation would be to want to include one whole series, and I want to shout out some books that I never do.
Without further ado, here are ten books that I would want with me if I was stranded on a desert island.
Get a Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert
I love The Brown Sisters series, and if I could take them all with them I would. But I am trying to restrict myself so I have had to pick my favourite of the series Get a Life, Chloe Brown!
Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas
I love Aiden Thomas’s storytelling within Cemetery Boys and love the way that the story plays out. It is a book that I could read forever and never get bored so it would have to come to a desert island with me!
Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
I absolutely adore Red, White and Royal Blue so it would have to come with me. There is just something about the romance between Henry and Alex that I love, so it will always be a must on my list!
The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V. E. Schwab
V. E. Schwab’s writing style in The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is just perfect for me and it is a book that I could read over and over again and always feel as if I had gained something. I will never get bored of it, so it is one of the most perfect books to take to a desert island.
House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas
I know that I have broken my rule by including this book, but it is a book that comes to a natural ending without leaving two many plot holes. So it is a book that I could read constantly without feeling as if I am missing something.
The Priory of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon
This book is so dense and it took me so long to read, that I almost wouldn’t need any of the other books that I have included in this list. I love Samantha Shannon’s storytelling, and the world within this book that I can constantly fall back into it.
Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow by Benjamin Dean
Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow has an amazing message and it is a book that I can always pick up and reread. I also adore Benjamin Dean’s writing style which is always a benefit.
A Kind of Spark by Elle McNicoll
My like Me, My Dad and the End of the Rainbow, I love the story within A Kind of Spark and it is one of my stand out books of this year. So I would have to take it with me!
Instructions for Dancing by Nicola Yoon
I adored Instructions for Dancing even though it broke me. So it is a book that I always want to reread and saviour, therefore it must come with me to my desert island.
The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant
This is another one that I have broken my rule for, but at the moment there is no sign of a sequel for the next couple of years. It is no secret that I love Les Misérables so as I would not be able to take the whole staged production, I will have to take a book that I adored around the same setting.
There you have the ten books that I’d want to be stranded on a desert island with. I have to admit that a desert island does sound very nice, as I could get so much reading done. What books would you take to a desert island? Let me know in the comments below.
