Top Ten Books I'd Want on a Deserted Island

This week is a freebie, so I looked back at the list of topics and picked one I hadn't read before.  I am putting books on this list that I loved enough to read over and over again.  I don't reread many books, just because I don't have the time, but those that I do re-read are really special to me.  So I am excluding the obvious survivor type books (though from a practical viewpoint, I really should have a bunch of those) and limit this to books I want to read again, and again.

This one kind of surprised me.  I think about this book all the time, and I have read it so many times I have lost count.  It has an insanely unlikable MC, but at the same time is totally compelling.  Every time I think about it, I want to read it again.  I'm actually fighting the urge to go grab it.

This is the only one of the series that I would want on a deserted island with me.  Not the the others are bad, it's just that this one is my favorite by far.  I think it has a lot to do with the relationship between Seb and Lydia.  They remain one of my favorite book couples.


  1. I loved The Year of Secret Assignments and Not That Kind of Girl! I still need to read a few of those, though. Harry Potter would be great to have, but it would have to be all of them. Great list and great topic choice!

  2. Oh yes, taking 1 Harry Potter book simply wouldn't do! ;)

    Great topic choice! Lots of new to me reads here though!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Nice topic!! I think it would be difficult for me to choose which ten books I'd want with me on a deserted island.

    Here's the link to my Top Ten Tuesday post for this week:

  4. I really loved the Sarah Dessen books I've read and This Lullaby is one of my favorites. Also, yay to Harry Potter but I highly doubt I could choose one book from the series haha. I really enjoyed Anna and the French Kiss too, though that might be surprising if you look at my list haha.
    Lovely list. :)

  5. I think if you had the first Harry Potter, you would need the entire series! One just wouldn't do.
