The 10 Books I'd Want If I Was Stranded On An Island

Okay, another post in the spirit of letting my bloggers get to know more about me.  I thought I'd do some top 10 or top 5 lists throughout the month.  Of course my "cheat" answer would be that I'd want my Nook with all my books downloaded on it, and an unlimited supply of batteries/electricity to run it.  However, as that's just silly and unrealistic, here are my top 10 books that I can read over and over and would take care of me on an island.

1.  It by Stephen King

2.  Watchers by Dean Koontz

3.  Swan Song by Robert McCammon

4.  The Flowers in the Attic series in one book by V.C. Andrews  (Is there such a thing?  If not, there should be.)

5.  The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer.  If not all, then just the first one is okay.

6.  Harry Potter series.  Although, there's not just one I would pick, I love them all.  Maybe if I had to pick just one, it would be Goblet of Fire.

7.  Gone With the Wind and/or it's sequel Scarlett

8.  Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

9.  My grandfather's Marx Brothers book I used to always look at when I went to visit him.

10.  Either a Fox Trot cartoon book, or a Calvin and Hobbes cartoon book for laughing.

Have you read any of those?  Would any of those be on your list?  How would you decide which books made the cut?

While you're here, don't forget to go sign up for my 3rd Blogoversary Barnes & Noble gift card.


  1. I love King!!! I would want that book too, especially because it is long and hopefully would take me a few days to read!


    1. That is my favorite of all his books, it is one I read over and over, as can be told by the state my copy of the book is in. I prefer to call it a well-loved book. :-)

  2. I would like the realistic answer to be my Kindle without running out of power and some Wifi too :-)

    I have Watchers on my TBR list.

    1. You should definitely read Watchers, it is one of my favorite books as you can tell from this list. And not just good, but one that can be re-read. There are parts that make me laugh, parts that make me cry, and lots of great suspense and great characters.

  3. Say, if you enjoy Stephen King, I bet you'd really like Bentley Little!! He is so freaking out there, but his stories all start out fairly believable & normal, then they slowly grow wonderfully scary!! So far - The Store, The Association and The Policy are probably my favorites - especially The Association which is about a weird *gated* community :P lol

    1. I have actually read a couple Bentley Little books. Can't remember off the top of my head which ones, but I did like them! Thanks for stopping by!


I love to get comments and I read them all! If you leave a link in your comment, I just might visit you back.
