Better late than never!
Anyways, here’s the list:
One of my favorite books of all time, so of course I’m going to want it on my deserted island. Added bonus: it’s long! So a lot of story to read.
I wiffle-waffled about which Austen book I’d bring, because I’m obviously going to bring an Austen to my deserted island. I chose P&P because I love the dynamic between the characters, I get something new out of it every time, and the story is a classic. In all honesty, I’m sure there’s a “Complete Works of Austen” book out there and I’d truly bring that if I could.
I mean, the Bard is awesome, I get so much out of his plays, and hey, on my deserted island, I’ve got to entertain myself somehow, so maybe I’ll put on a one-woman version of them all. Why not? I’m sure I’ll have the time.
This book is just so rich in description and atmosphere, it takes you to a whole other place, which is just perfect for a deserted island because I’m sure I’ll want to imagine I’m somewhere else. This is the book to do it.
Everyone needs to laugh while on a deserted island, and this book makes me laugh so much! I definitely need it with me. Also it’s another great escape book.
This is probably my favorite book of all time (I say probably because it truly is hard to have a favorite book), so I’m definitely bringing it with me.
This book is just so mysterious! I need a little brain-teaser to keep me occupied on the island. I think this book is a little like the movie Inception where you catch something new every time, so this would be a great pick. Plus the writing is excellent!
Murder on the Orient Express | Agatha Christie
Another classic, but I must have it. I knew I would bring an Agatha Christie with me and I did agonize over which one, but I’ve decided on this one because it’s just so much fun.
Okay, it took me a while to decide what romance I would bring with me (of course I’m bringing a romance, they’re so entertaining!), and I finally decided on this one, simply because it’s just so cute, so smart, and I love it. I did debate on whether to bring this or Heart Principle but I decided that Kiss Quotient should be the one because I read it first and it there for has nostalgia for me.
Another of my favorite books. The language of this book just sings. I would love to read it over and over, it is so beautiful, so another obvious pick to bring with me.
How about you?
