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.
I’ve decided to put my own spin on it to create a list of the books I’d bring to stave off the boredom of a desert island.
You can also choose one luxury item that doesn’t help you to escape the island, so there goes my request for a copy of How to Build a Boat.
One of the worst habits I’ve picked up recently is gathering free books for my Kindle. It feels like a good chance to try them out, especially if it’s a genre or trope I’ve never read. There doesn’t feel like anything to lose if I don’t love the book.
Have you heard of, or read, any of these books? Do you know where I should start?
