2) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. There's not enough room on this list to take all the Harry Potter books, sadly, so I will take the conclusion. Let everything wrap itself up.
3) Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Ditto here.
5) The Giver by Lois Lowry. Too classic a book to not bring, too vital to my personal history as a reader.
6) To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Ditto. Also, this book covers a lot of topics I like to think about, so it'll give me something to work with.
7) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. By the time I get rescued from the island, maybe I'll have a whole dissertation prepared on this one.
8) It's Kind of a Funny Story by Ned Vizzini. As a mentally ill person, I feel like this is a book I want to have on hand.
9) Hans Christian Andersen's Complete Fairy Tales. It's a lot of material to cover, and all of them lovely and thoughtful.
10) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. In case I need a cry, because this one had a big impact on me tear-wise.
