Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday, a book blog tag hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Today I'm going into the archives to share the Top Ten Books I'd Want With Me on a Desert Island, which is a painful task indeed. (Sorry for posting this late--finals week has got me confused about what day is which.)
1) An LDS scripture quad. It's probably pretty important to take religious texts if you've got limited options, yeah? Yeah. And even though it's four books, this totally counts as one because it comes all bound in one big leathery thing.
2) Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling. There's not enough room 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.
4) Undivided by Neal Shusterman. Ditto again with this one.
5) The Giver by Lois Lowry. Too classic a book to not bring, and too vital to my personal history as a reader.
6) To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. 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.
Ugh, what a terrible choice to have to make! What would your choices be? I'll see you guys momentarily.
