Top Ten Tuesday: Deserted Island Books

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, this week's topic: Top Ten Books I'd Want On a Deserted Island

1.  A Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss - this one is a little more action packed than The Name of the Wind - also it's longer and I think length is important when you only get to have 10 books.

2.  To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis - again, this is a pretty lengthy book and it will fulfill any sci-fi or comedy of error yens I may have.

3.  Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen - gotta have a book that's great for rereading over and over again!

4.  His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman - because I'm a cheat and I know you can get all three stories in one volume now :)

5.  Still Alice by Lisa Genova - for when I want a good cry.

6.  Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson - for when I want a good laugh.

7.  Siddhartha by Herman Hesse - for some spiritual enlightenment.

8.  The Bible - again it's super lengthy and I've never read the entire book.

9.  Ulysses by James Joyce - because why not get ambitious when you're stuck on an island?

10. SAS Survival Handbook by John Lofty Wiseman - this will likely be the most used book.


  1. I love your lists! I always want to read at least half. This one is no exception. Thanks.

  2. I have yet to read a single book on your list!!!

  3. I love that book cover of Garden Spells, so pretty!

  4. I also cheated with my list and put His Dark Materials on it! (and LotR and Harry Potter)They're just amazing books and I wouldn't want to be on a deserted island without them! Great list!
