Top Ten Books I Would Take to a Desert Island

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. You can check out this week's topic here and for a list of future topics head here. For my rewind topic this week I chose to do top ten books that I would take with me to a desert island. Some of my picks are books that I love and read a lot and others are also books I really enjoy but they are thicker and I feel like they would take longer to read.

Girl Online (Girl Online, #1)
1) Girl Online by Zoe Sugg
I chose this book because whenever I am in a bad mood or don't know what I want to read I can read this and feel better.

Carry On
2) Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
I can't image what life would be like if I didn't always have this book. I just love it so much.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Harry Potter, #5)
3) Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix by J K Rowling
This one I picked because I love the Harry Potter books but I can't take them all with me so I decided to take the longest one.

Jane Eyre 
4) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
I only recently read this book but I really enjoyed it and I think it would be nice to have at least one classic with me on a desert island. 

The Neverending Story
5) The Never Ending Story by Michael Ende
I haven't read this book in a long time but when I was looking at my book shelf for inspiration I saw it and decided I would like to have it with me.

 Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)
6) Winter by Marissa Meyer
Once again this was chosen because I love the series but couldn't pick them all so chose the longest because it would take longer to read.

Anne of Green Gables (Anne of Green Gables, #1)
7) Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery 
Ever since I first read this book I really enjoyed the story and I loved the characters and I feel like it would be a good book to have with me cause I could just read it again and again without getting bored.

Paper Towns
8) Paper Towns by John Green
I wanted to take a John Green book with me and I thought that The Fault In Our Stars would have been too sad so I went with one of my other favourites.

City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6)
9) City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare
I love this book, and this series so much and I couldn't not pick one of the books from the series so I decided I would pick the last book because then the ending is better. Also I just really love this book.

The Forestwife Trilogy
10) The Forest Wife Trilogy by Theresa Tomlinson
I haven't read this trilogy in a while but I remember really enjoying them and because it is a bigger book once again I feel like it could take longer to read than other books.

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading


  1. I almost did this topic- books on a desert island is a fun topic to consider. It's nice to have a book that makes you feel better, and I haven't read Carry On but I liked Fangirl a lot. The Neverending Story I've never read but did see the movie. And I bet Anne of Green Gables would be on a lot of lists...

    1. This topic just appealed to me and I agree it is fun topic to consider. At first I was finding it hard to decide but then I just realised I would need different types of books because you always need one book that makes you feel better. Clare read me The Neverending Story once when I was younger and I loved it. I agree Anne of Green Gables is wonderful. :)
