Top Ten Tuesday #65

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.

This week is Top Ten Books I'd Want on a Desert Island.

Not only are these some of our FAVOURITE books, but they are also ones that we could - and already have - read time and again, the ones we never get bored of.


These are the books that stay in my head, the books that I love to get lost in, the books that make me feel every emotion under the sun. They are books that I would recommend to absolutely everyone, and I am currently giving away one of them in the post before this.
  • I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
  • Lucas by Kevin Brooks
  • Junk by Melvin Burgess
  • Darkmere by Helen Maslin
  • Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
  • Shadows and Stronghold by Elizabeth Chadwick
  • Geek Girl by Holly Smale
  • Soulless by Gail Carriger
  • The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
  • Possessing Rayne by Kate Cann


I decided to chose these books as some of them have a desert, or arid dry setting to them. The Falcons of Montabard by Elizabeth Chadwick, follows the story of Sabin FitzSimon, as he travels to the Holy Land. Chadwick has a unique flair the bringing the Holy Land to life, and captivating the readers senses.  
  • The Magician's Guild by Trudi Canavan
  • Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones
  • Sabriel by Garth Nix
  • Matched by Ally Condie
  • Perelandra by CS Lewis
  • The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
  • The Wind Singer by William Nicholson
  • The Doomspell by Cliff McNish
  • Fated by Alyson Noel
  • The Falcons of Montabard by Elizabeth Chadwick
What's your ultimate desert island read?
