Top Ten Books I’d want on a deserted island

If I was only going to be stranded for 7-10 days I would totally want my ereader so I could have lots of choices. But since I don’t know how long I’ll be stranded for…


1. The Bible
I’ll probably need it to survive and it’s got a lot of pages.

2. Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
I’m going to cheat with this one and say the whole series, but if I’m hard pressed to pick just one, it would be The Deathly Hallows.

3. Stealing Parker by Miranda Kenneally
So much love for this book.

4. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson
I really need to finish this. This will be my chance.

5. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
Another book I could read forever and ever.


6. Alive by Piers Paul Read
If they can survive, so can I.

7. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I need some action to keep my spirits up.

8. I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
A little something to pick me up when I’m feeling down.

9. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I want to reread this, and this would be the perfect opportunity.

10. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
How could I be stranded on a deserted island with out Beauty Queens?

    Ooh, thats a hard one to decide – only 10 books? Great list, I think The Book Thief may well be one of the books I’d pick as well. Mind you if we could be shipwrecked on an island together I could pick a totally different 10 books and we could share.

    I think variety is important, especially if you read pretty much everything like I do. I think you did a good job. Most of these I’ve read, but a few I haven’t. I also would consider length. I would want some really long books — preferably ones that I haven’t read but I know will be good. Lots to think about….

    Beauty Queens is such a great pick! I haven’t read it yet but I can see how it would make for a perfect desert island read! I may have to add it to my list!

    The Book Thief is on my list too! And I thought about adding the Millionium Trilogy to my list too!

    Maybe we could get stranded on the same island and I could bring 10 other books so we could have a combined total of 20? I wouldn’t mind being stranded with a bunch of book lovers, but it’s going to suck if we all just brought Harry Potter and the bible…

    I totally considered Beauty Queens. Hahah, awesome choice. And I’m pretty sure being stranded on an island with them would be the only way to get me to finish the Larsson series. I read the first one and it was okay, and I do still have book two on my to-read list, but…I don’t see me actually getting to it.
