Inspired by the Broke and the Bookish!
What ten books would you bring with you if stranded on a dessert island?
- The Complete Sherlock Holmes, Volume I by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - I love Sherlock Holmes! This gigantic book would certainly tide me over for quite awhile!
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling - If I can't bring all my Harry Potter books, then I'd bring this one. Once again, because it's huge, and second, it's probably my favorite.
- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo - I've had this one awhile, but have been too busy to start reading it...I'm doubting I'm going to be too busy on this deserted island.
- Voyager by Diana Gabaldon - Since I'm kind of a wimp, I'm also thinking that I may die on this island. If that's the case, I can't die without knowing what happens in the third book of the Outlander series. Bonus: It's ginormous.
- The Autobiography of Henry VIII by Margaret George - I'm trying to narrow my list down to only one Tudor book, and this is my pick. It's awesome.
- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith - I simply can't imagine being anywhere for a long period of time without this book. It's very special to me.
- The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis - another series I've been meaning to get around to. I have a nice big volume with all the books in one. No cheating here!
- The Beatles: The Biography by Bob Spitzer - I got bored trying to read this book the first time around....and since I'll have nothing else to do, why not? Plus, I love the Beatles.
- The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley - Another must-read epic.
- Helen of Troy by Margaret George - I'll be alone and jealous that Helen of Troy is cooler than me.
I'm pretty sure that all of these books are at least 800 pages. I'll be busy for awhile.
