Hi friends, how are you today? I hope your week is going well so far. I’m not going to be very original here, because, well, Wednesday is book tag day for a few weeks now…No worries, I still got some things in stock to surprise you ! To prove this to you…I’m taking you on a deserted island. Without books. Noooo. I’m kidding. Just in a deserted island. No books would be too crazy.
Thank you so much to Ashley @ Socially Awkward Bookworm for tagging me for The Deserted Island book tag, where I’m going to talk about books I can’t live without, and books that would help me through this difficult time. Since we can never have too many books, I hope this island gets wifi and awesome bookshops, so I can fulfil all of my bookish nerd needs…
Water — A book you simply cannot live without.
I’m going to be VERY obvious here, and I apologize, but I have to go with Looking for Alaska for this one. John Green is my favorite author and this book is just, my favorite of all times.
Food— A book that is a close second on your favorites list.
Lauren Oliver is one of my favorite authors, too, so I’m definitely thinking about her and her latest book, Vanishing Girls. It BROKE my heart, but I think I’m okay with it. Or, not really. Anyways, it just was so good, and I can’t wait for her next book to come out.
Shelter — A book that makes you feel at home and safe.
Anything cute and contemporary, I guess, (because I’ll spare you the two I just quoted before). I love Jenny Han, and Morgan Matson’s books, their books always put a smile on my face, their characters are SO relatable and, I don’t know, I just love them.
Flare Gun — A book you would recommend to someone who doesn’t read.
I want to go with Patrick Ness for that one, and especially the wonderful More Than This. The plot and the story will drive readers crazy (it certainly had that effect on me), so I’m guessing non readers will either think, WHAT IS THIS BOOK, or … well, what IS this book. Either way, they should love it, and so should you.
Matchsticks — A book that warms your heart.
An obvious choice, Anna and The French Kiss, because Stephanie Perkins does know how to write a story that will melt your heart. But I want to say, The Summer of Chasing Mermaids, too, because that book made my heart melt EVEN MORE, the writing was fantastic, and it’s one of those books I want to hug.
Compass — A book that directed you towards your love of reading.
I can’t remember, I held books in my hands as a baby…. I’ll go with The Hunger Games maybe, because I think that’s the book that directed me towards my love of reading YA, and opened my eyes on how MARVELLOUS this genre is.
Since I’m not sure who’s done this tag, or not, well, YOU are doing it. Yes, ALL OF YOU guys who feel like it, I’d love to read your answers and your struggles at picking out only a few books when we all know we want ALL THE BOOKS.
