SO HARD TO CHOSE.
// the Bible //
This Book will never grow old, will never be outdated, and will never cease to be the best thing anyone could ever read. And it would be an immeasurable comfort on all those lonely days waiting for rescue. 🙂
// The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton //
Certainly not the longest of books, but the re-readability, people! The characters are old friends and I love them and the writing and the story and the feeeeeels. Very awesome, all of it. This book (and these characters) deserve all the hugs.
// Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell //
Now this is a door-stopper. But it’s not boring, not a single part of it. Margaret Mitchell’s writing is gorgeous and dripping with vivid details. ❤ (Plus, I love that my favorite novel – The Outsiders – and my second favorite novel – GWTW – share such a neat connection.)
// Emma by Jane Austen //
How could I not include a Jane Austen novel? Her books are unique in that I can literally read them a hundred times and not get tired of them. You can’t beat that. Emma is my favorite of all her works, though it’s a tough call at times. But I love all the Highbury antics and gossip and relationships. #perfect
// The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins //
If I could twist the rules of this post, I would totally include the entire series…but I’m not going to do that. And The Hunger Games could almost be a stand-alone novel, so that works out okay. Suzanne Collins does a fabulous job with world-building and characterization – you really feel like you’re right there in the arena, feeling and seeing and thinking exactly what Katniss experiences. Wow.
What books would you take to a desert island? Would you like to see a post like this from me, but about movies?
