Today Nikki Jefford, author of the Spellbound trilogy and Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter, is here to share her deserted island wishlist. Nikki recently did a guest post for me about her SPELLBOUND SOUNDTRACK.
1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Never gets old. Just me, Mr. Darcy, and the setting sun.
2. Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin – because it’s epically long, awesome, and ya know, I’m gonna have all this time on my hands. Gotta make each book go a long way.
3. To Beguile A Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt. This is a historical romance and steamy as all get out. If I’m alone on this island I’m going to need some, ahem, mental stimulation in addition to literary entertainment.
4. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. So I did a 180 there. This is one of my all-time favorite books. Like a favorite sitcom, this story can bring a smile to my lips even when life gets me down…or stranded!
5. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo so I can remind myself that there are worse things than being stranded on a deserted island.
1. Notebook and pen. I’m always jotting down ideas, things to do, thoughts, feelings – escape plans! I have to have a journal.
2. Boogy board. When I’m not reading I’m hitting the waves for some fun in the sun!
3. Hairbrush. This is not a vanity thing. My hair just tangles easily and it drives me crazy and the last thing I want to do is go crazy on an island. Plus I can name him. Wilson. Wait Tom Hanks took that. How about Mr. Bristles?
4. Kite. Right, so I’ve never been a particularly practical person, but I’m amazingly adaptable not to mention a passing ship might notice my kite sailing in the sky.
5. A bottle of rum. No explanation necessary. ARR!
