Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books I Would Want on a Deserted Island

This week's Top 10 Tuesday on Broke & The Bookish is similar to my list for When Aliens Attack, so I tried to change it up a little. First up is the 5 series that I couldn't live without.

1. Harry Potter as usual :)

2. Strangers in Paradise by Terry Moore --so much good stuff in this graphic novel series.

3. Baby-Sitters Club because there are like 200 books and I could read them all thru and then again, finding all the inconsistencies lol.

4. Gone series by Michael Grant --because there are lots of useful tips on how to survive and I really need to know if/how they get out of the bubble!! So the full series would be a must.

5. Black Dagger Brotherhood OR Lords of the Underworld series --I could go with either of these, because they're both lots of fun and lots of sexy guys! :)

And 5 single edition books...sort of.

6. Echo by Terry Moore --kind of a cheater, since this is technically a series, but I'd take the giant smooshed together edition lol. I just read this one recently, per my dad's suggestion, and really enjoyed it. I hope to review it soon, so I won't say more here!

7. Cannery Row --I couldn't go without my new favorite classic, now could I?

8. 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami --I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet...I suck. I would take this book because there are so many intricate layers woven in throughout, that I could probably read this monster-sized book 6 times and still not know all the secrets.

9. To Kill a Mockingbird --this is such a genuine, heartfelt story.

10.And finally...Pride & Prejudice --I can't believe I'm saying this, but this story is growing on me. I think with a reread or two, it would become a favorite. This is how Austen-fanatics get started isn't it? Lol...

  2. Oh nice list! I don't know what i woud put on. Harry Potters definitely ;-)
    There's so many books i still need to read, so i might add books i haven't read yet. And of course the large book with all 3 Lord of the Rings... That keeps me busy a long time hehe.
    I have the first book of Black Dagger Brotherhood! I havent read it yet though. People tell me i should, thats why i got it, but so many books to read, so little time ;-)
