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.
I've been wanting to reread this book for a while now. It's been so long, that being stuck on a deserted island would be the perfect time to read this again.
I don't know how many times I've actually read this book. If I had to guess I would say maybe 10? That doesn't mean I would mind reading another 10x or more if I was stuck on an island.
I loved this book, it was such a nostalgia trip for me that I could read it again and again.
Ideally I would have access to the entire series. Barring that, I would probably take the first one along.
It was so hard to pick just one Jennifer Echols book. I picked this one, but it really could have been any of them. I've actually read all of her books multiple times, and I will probably read them all again at some point.
I've read this book multiple times, and I could read it many more. It makes me cry each and every time.
Real Live Boyfriends: Yes. Boyfriends, Plural. If My Life Weren't Complicated, I Wouldn't Be Ruby Oliver (Ruby Oliver #4) by E. Lockhart
I picked the last book in the series, but picking one was really hard. Actually picking any E. Lockhart book is hard, and I would gladly be stuck with any of them on an island.
Yeah, picking just one Sarah Dessen book was hard. This list could have easy been the Top 10 Sarah Dessen books I would want to have with me on a deserted island.
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.
