Top Ten Tuesday: Books I'd Want on a Desert Island (27 July 2021)

    

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is books I'd want with me whilst stranded on a desert island. I've decided to split this into my favourite books that I'd want to reread and the longest books I still have on my TBR as I'd get the chance to attempt to read them if I was stuck on a deser island.

  1. Great list! I love some of your choices here and Dracula is always a good read, wherever you are - Dumas is cropping up a lot too!
    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!

    1. I thought so! Even if I don't like the long books there'll be plenty of paper to start a fire haha!

    1. That sounds so good that you'd love to read Monte Cristo for the first time again. It must be good!

  10. I love Wallbanger such a great romantic comedy. I would also make sure that the majority of the books I brought were long a great strategy.

    1. Wallbanger makes me laugh so much. Yes, I think they'd keep me entertained for a long time.

  11. Interesting list. I 've read six of those books and am going to read a seventh (Dracula) this year for one of my challenges. Of the ones I have read, many of them great books, my favourite would be "War and Peace". Happy Reading!

    Thanks for visiting my TTT earlier.

    1. That's really nice to hear you enjoyed War and Peace. I find it a bit intimidating.

      Delete
    2. I love large books and I know they are not for everyone. I never read just one book at a time so I still finish a book from time to time before I finally finish the big one.

      Delete
    3. I think that's such a good way to do it. I might have to try it myself soon, just to help break the bigger ones down a bit.

      Delete
  12. Les Mis and War & Peace are good calls! I still need to read them.

    1. Hopefully we'll get round to reading them one day!

  13. Fantastic list! I have seen Les Mis on quite a few!

    1. Thanks! Yes I think being on a desert island would be the perfect opportunity for a lot of us to get round to reading it.
