TTT #195| Books I’d Want With Me While Stranded On a Deserted Island

We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is Books I’d Want With Me While Stranded On a Deserted Island. How can I choose just ten books to bring on a deserted island with me? Just not enough, haha. Here are ten that I would definitely love bringing!

The Guncle – Steven Rowley

The Guncle is one of my more recent reads and I loved it so much! This will be making my favorite list at the end of the year. I was hit in all the feels, but also smiled quite a bit while reading this story. The Guncle is full of love, grieving, being who you are and how to keep on going after a major loss.

Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas

Throne of Glass is definitely a comfort series (even though I haven’t read the last book yet, haha). The characters, world, magic and just the whole adventure had me hooked. I can’t help but want to revisit this world over and over again.

A Court of Mist and Fury – Sarah J. Maas

I know this isn’t the first book in the ACOTAR series, but it is my favorite. Even if the ending left me needing the third book, but everything else was just amazing. It’s been quite some time since I read A Court of Mist and Fury and a re-read is due soon.

The Bromance Book Club – Lyssa Kay Adams

I’m always happy when the books I love also involve books in some shape or form. The Bromance Book Club is a lot of fun, because the men decide to use a book to try and help their relationships. This book is filled with feel good moments, but also plenty that make you laugh out loud.

My Life as a Pop Album – L.J. Evans

If I could I would take all of the author’s books so far. LJ Evans writes amazing books and creates characters you can’t help but care about. Her stories always suck me in and leave me wanting more. I love the way she also combines music in her stories. My Life as a Pop Album is one of my favorites though.

Red, White & Royal Blue – Casey McQuiston

Alex & Henry are one of my favorite bookish couples! This book had me smiling and laughing so much and just wanting them together. I’ve read Red, White & Royal Blue twice now and know this will happen more often.

Better Than the Movies – Lynn Painter

Better Than the Movies is definitely a feel good book. I love rom-coms and romance movies and thist one gave me some of that and so much more. Yes, the book  is predictable, but it’s the best comfort books are. This book left a smile on my face and I know this will be a future re-read.

Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows has a crew of characters that aren’t perfect at all, but that makes them so lovable. I’ve read this one twice already and can’t get enough (that seems to be a trend for this week). The world is interesting as is their adventure.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue – V.E. Schwab

I think this is such an unique story that gives you something different every time you read it. Before this I’ve never read anything like it. For me this feels like a book I’ll notice new details every time I read it. If you haven’t read this one yet I definitely recommend it!

The House in the Cerulean Sea – T.J. Klune

The House in the Cerulean Sea is truly a book you want to hug after reading the last page. It’s so good! This one really hit me in all the feels and I really came to care for all of the characters. I could read this one over and over and not get sick of it at all.

  1. Some lovely titles there – I have to say that length guided my list a little more than perhaps it should have! Loved bot Red, White and Royal Blue and The House in the Cerulean Sea… I wonder whether I should read more books with colours in the title…!
    This is my TTT list of books I’d want with me – although I found it impossible to keep it to ten and am itching to add others to it!

  2. So many of these I loved but just didn’t make my list this week because narrowing down to 10 was ridiculously hard! Six of Crows, Addie LaRue, ACOMAF and Throne of Glass are all books I enjoyed but they didn’t make my list this week, because I had to narrow down to 10 somehow. I did have other VE Schwab books on my list though, honestly I could have filled an entire list with just hers!
