"Top Ten Tuesday" is an original feature/weekly meme created on the blog "The Broke and the Bookish". This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at "The Broke and the Bookish".
It is now hosted by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.
Since I am just as fond of them as they are, I jump at the chance to share my lists with them! Have a look at their page, there are lots of other bloggers who share their lists here.
This week's topic is: Books I’d Want With Me While Stranded On a Deserted Island
That's a very good question. Do I want long books so I have a lot to read? Do I want to take "beach reads", so I have something to divert myself, do I want to carry non-fiction books so I can learn something while all on my own?
I never enjoy short reads or easy reads as much as large, chunky books, especially if they give me a lot to think. So I came up with my favourite books by my favourite authors plus some. Of course, some of them are trilogies or even tetralogies, I just treat them as one but would definitely take the first book of the series if I wasn't allowed all.
