It’s a classic question to get to know people: What 5 books would you bring to a desert island? To me, this is a no-brainer. And I hope as I answer this very important question that you’ll get to know me a little better.
1. The Complete Works of Edgar Allen Poe:
I love me some E.A. Poe. This book would definitely keep me busy whilst stuck on a desert island. There’s a lot of things in this book to read and I highly doubt that I would ever get bored of The Complete Works… . And you wouldn’t think that I girl like me, someone who resembles Disney’s portrayal of Rapunzel, would be into Poe, but I totally am.
2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban:
Is there anyone here who doesn’t love Harry Potter? Harry Potter was my childhood. And is still part of my teenage/adult life. Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite book of the series. I don’t know why, it just is. I’d like to have a piece of my childhood with me on this hypothetical desert island, so that I can still feel a little young while I’m withering away.
3. The Princess Bride
The Princess Bride is my favorite book and my favorite movie.
The love story is perfect. It’s lasting and realistic. This is the kind of love story I’ve always wished to have.
And if I could choose between Mr. Darcy and Westley, I would choose Westley. Every time. He’s just…better.
Besides, who can resist those R.O.U.S.’s?
4. Webster’s Dictionary
I’m not just going to cease my learning experience once I’ve been stranded. I want to continue my scholastic career. And I’d do that by reading the dictionary and learning new words so I can impress my coconut friends.
5. Moby Dick
I’ve never read Moby Dick. I don’t ever plan on reading Moby Dick. I do plan, however, to go all Fahrenheit 451 on it and burn it for warmth. That’s the plan.
Let me know in the comments what 5 books you’d bring to a desert island. And if you have any hate for book burning, please refrain from expressing that here. Thank you!
