Desert Island Books

This post is part of Top Ten Tuesday run by Jana from That Artsy Reader Girl.

Desert Island Discs is a pretty popular segment on BBC Radio 4. Some of the world’s most famous faces come along and list out the eight CDs they’d like to have with them if marooned on a desert island.

Some of these were gifts, while some came back with me after a trip back to Cardiff. All images are via my Bookstagram account.
