Today I am excited to have Donna from Book Wookie on the blog for my Deserted Island feature. And as funny as it is, I had no idea that she was Canadian. Perhaps I should have clued in when I saw .ca at the end of her URL, but I don't always look at the URL and well as Donna puts it - "Probably because I never used the word 'eh', eh? Ha ha."
What are five books you would want with you if you were ever stuck on a deserted island? And why?
- Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews - This is my favorite book of all time and life would not be complete without it.
- Petals on the Wind by V.C. Andrews - Because you can't have one without the other.
- On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves - Another one of my favorites about, you guessed it, being stranded on a deserted island! Maybe it would give me some survival tips. At the least, it would entertain me and make me feel badly that I wasn't stranded with a hot young thang!
- Survive! by Les Stroud - Because Survivorman is awesome and if anyone could get me rescued, it would be Les Stroud!
- Hmmm...this is a tough one. I would probably bring a standalone book (no cliffhangers!) that I haven't read before but have been wanting to. Something like The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
What five items would you want with you? And why?
- Chapstick - I'm an addict. 'Nuff said.
- Survival kit - No explanation needed.
- Tampons - Because, quite frankly, I can't imagine my life without them.
- Pictures of loved ones - So that I don't give up hope of being rescued.
- A comfortable pair of shoes - Because the last thing I would need would be to step on something poisonous.
I love these choices. Personally I adored On the Island and I think it's hilarious to have that with you considering the topic of the story. And well you can't go wrong with chapstick and tampons.
Thank you for stopping by today Donna!
