Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers. (Meme description taken from The Broke and the Bookish)

Top Ten Books I'd Want on a Deserted Island 

1. Warm Bodies by Issac Marion- It's my favorite book of all time, so naturally I'd want it with me. The only worry would be if I started getting paranoid that there were zombies on my island. That wouldn't work out so well...

2. Hourglass by Myra McEntire- I just really, really love this book right now. Time travel is awesome and the characters are wonderful. I think Emerson would be a smart and sassy girl to have at my side. 

3. Forever by Maggie Stiefvater- If I am being sent out to a bleeping deserted island, I am going to know what happened to Sam and Grace and Isabel and Cole. End of story.

4. One Grave at a Time by Jeaniene Frost- Cat and Bones. I mean, I cannot exclude them. They're my favorite fictional married couple.

5. Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins- I'd club myself over the head with a rock if I didn't bring this book. Perkins' writing is just so funny and good, I know it could snap me out of any funk I got into.

6. The First Book in the Night Prince Series by Jeaniene Frost- Vlad is one of my favorite characters in Frost's books. I need to have him with me. NEED him.

7. Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning- I haven't read it and I really want to know what happens in the series. It's a very long book too. If I wanted, I could pace out reading it for a while until I got rescued from the deserted island.

8. The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine- It is impossible to go to a deserted island and not bring your favorite childhood book. I mean, what's going to comfort you at night when the strange sounds start? What are you going to hug when you want a piece of home?

9. Looking for Alaska by John Green- I've never read this book. (I've been trying to get my hands on it for weeks!) I guess I'd want a few things I hadn't read before in order to stimulate my brain. I mean even your favorite books get a little boring after you've read them all 5 times.

10. SAS Survival Handbook, Revised Edition: For Any Climate, In Any Situation by John "Lofty" Wiseman- This one would appear pretty self-explanatory. I am not an outdoors girl by any stretch of anyone's imagination. I have no illusions that I'd die without a survival guide. Well, I still might die anyway, but the book would give me a better chance. Right?

Honorable Mentions: The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab, Ripple by Mandy Hubbard and the next Heist Society book by Ally Carter.

Happy Reading, 


  1. I love your point about wanting to know what happens to Grace, Sam, Isabel and Cole.

    Also--I loved The Two Princesses of Bamarre!!

    Hourglass looks aweessooomme!! Looking forward to reading it.

    Get your hands on Looking for Alaska immediately... you'll love it!

    And Lola, of course, looks amazing.

  2. Yay! A fellow Bamarre lover, I'm so happy! Yes, Hourglass is amazing, one of the best science fiction books I've read. :)

    I reserved Looking for Alaska at my library and will hopefully get it soon. I am so excited for Lola! Anna was just awesome.
