Cat at The Book Finch is hosting an amazing month long meme called Slumps Are For Chumps.
Today’s Prompt : I am going to a deserted island for 6 months with NO TECHNOLOGY or MAIL and I can only take 5 books with me. This prompt is in honour of National Bookmobile Day.
Who thinks this is really unfair? This girl! Honestly I am just glad I am going away only for 6 months, not for the rest of my life!
After careful scientific analysis and consideration(not really, I don’t like science), I have chosen these 5 amazing books!
1) Any of the Harry Potter books: Harry Potter is my all time favourite series. Harry Potter was the first fantasy novel I read,it got me hooked to the fantasy genre. It also bought a lot of magic into my life. When you are going to a deserted island, what you need most is magic.
I am not particular which one I will take. Probably Order of The Phoenix or The Deathly Hallows.
2) The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan: This is the last book in the Percy Jackson series and it is so epic! I feel this is the best book in the entire series. It has so much action and so many emotions. It also doesn’t hurt that this is one of my favourites. I am choosing this book because I will NEED Percy’s sass and camp-half blood to get through 6 months on a deserted island.
3) Winter by Marissa Meyer: If you have been following my posts, you should know by now how much I love The Lunar Chronicles. I am taking Winter with me because it is the longest( 829 pages!).
4) Any of the books in The Soul Eater series by Eliza Crewe: Seriously guys, this series is so amazing! There are soul eaters, demons and crusaders! What more do you need on a deserted island?
5) Lola And The Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins: I read this one last week and it is officially my favourite contemporary romance read. Ah! Cricket Bell *sighs*.
I would need atleast one contemporary read because otherwise I am going to forget how the real world works after 6 months on a deserted island!
So those were the 5 books I would take with me. Which ones will you take? or if you are participating in this meme, leave the link to your post in the comments!
