Desert Island Tag

Friday 15 April 2016

A few weeks ago, I saw this tag on several different blogs. It looked like a bit of fun so I decided I wanted to give it a go. Essentially, it's the book equivalents of all the necessities you'd need if you were stranded on a desert island. 

Water: a book you simply can't live without
This was a tough choice, but all of the Percy Jackson books. They're so much fun and I need to own any book focusing on mythology Rick Riordan writes.

Food: a book that is a close second on your favourite's list

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. It's hands down the best vampire book I've read and the trilogy just gets better and better.

Shelter: a book that makes you feel at home and safe
A Song of Ice and Fire. An odd choice, I know, given none of the characters are safe and it's not exactly a nice book. There's something about the world of Westeros that I love and I connect with so may of the characters. I just need to get around to finally re-reading it.

Flare Gun: a book that you would recommend to someone who doesn't like reading

Juvie by Steve Watkins. It has an Orange is the New Black vibe and was a fun read.

Matchsticks: a book that warms your heart
The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I've yet to read another book that makes me feel the same way - totally invested and in love with all of the characters and all mushy when I think of America and Maxon.

Compass: a book that directed you towards your love of reading
I've always been a reader, but as I reached my teens it was The Hunger Games that turned me into the massive bookworm I am today.


  1. I totally get the selection! It's such a light, fluffy and easy read!

    1. It's such a fun series as well! I really need to re-read it because I don't want to forget anything from it haha

  2. Love this tag, and your answers are spot on! I don't think I could live without the Percy Jackson series either, and the Hunger Games was what sparked my love for reading as well. Thanks for sharing and, as always, fabulous post! ♥

    1. Thank you! It took me a while to decide on a book I can't live without but I think Percy Jackson was fitting, seeing as it was 'water' ;)


Got a thought or an opinion? I'd love to hear it.
