Antonia’s Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Bring to a Deserted Island

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. This week’s topic is Books I’d Want With Me While Stranded On a Deserted Island.

The Witness by Nora Roberts

The Obsidian Trilogy by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory

The Martian by Andy Weir

The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

The Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams China

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

House of Earth And Blood by Sarah J. Maas

What books would you have to have on a deserted island?

  1. Having recently downsized and moved, meaning most of my books and recordings are in storage until we get some major renovations done on our 1830s Cape on Moose Island, the choice of just ten volumes hits home. Even with the ten or so boxes I have with me, I find myself wishing I had others at hand. Just last week I got an invitation to a shape-note sing and realized my copy of Sacred Harp is among the volumes packed away — I never thought I’d actually be using it up here.
    My own Desert Island lists would be more along the lines of knotty works I’d want to read again and again, just in case rescue was long off.

Have any thoughts?
