okay, so this tag is fairly simple and I thought it’d be a quick fun tag to do and it’ll also let you guys know which books are the creme de la creme, for me at least, because let’s be honest when you’re stuck on a desert island you want a book that you know won’t let you down and one that you will not get bored of reading.
So the first book that I’d have with me would be The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I only read this book for the first time last year but I have already read it a total of three times and that is because I cannot get enough of the incredible detail that there is in this book and I cannot get enough of the circus itself. It’s just the kind of place that I so desperately wish were real because I want nothing more than to be able to visit it. The cast of characters are all so unique and they each have their own little story that it is interwoven in to the main plot which I’m sure is gonna keep you occupied when you LITERALLY HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO. Not to mention, Erin Morgenstern’s writing is literally breathtaking!
Now, obviously when you’re stranded on a desert island, you’re bound to be really emotionally drained and in those times you’ll want a book with the warm fuzzies. For that, I definitely have to pick The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. It is hands down my favorite contemporary of all time, the writing is gorgeous, it also just makes me feel so happy without it being too much. It does deal with some heavier topics as well but that just sort of adds to it, it inspires you and I think that’s the sort of book that you need in that situation.
Third on my list is actually one that I read very recently and that is The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers, and I’d bring this with me for two reasons: (1) it took me quite a bit to get through because of all the details and (2) all the different characters and planets that you have in this book will definitely help with the undeniable feeling of loneliness.
And my final two books are I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak and Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. I hold both of these books very dear to my heart and I tend to reread them whenever I’m feeling upset or alone so I feel like they are both important books to have with me on a desert island.
And that’s it! What’s a book you’ll definitely need to have with you on a desert island?
