Desert Island Books

YA Sisterhood is hosting this fun way to show your favorite book recommendations to other book bloggers.

What are the 10 books you would choose to bring with your if you were to live out your life on a deserted island? You get to bring 5 Adult book and 5 YA books, including the full series. Here is my list of series I would grab to bring with me.

5 Adult Books/Series
Terra D'Ange series by Jacqueline Carey (9 book total, yes I'm cheating)
I love this series, it is my favorite and it is very huge.

Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
I love Mercy, she is one of my favorite female characters 

Goddess Summoning series by PC Cast
I really love theses books, romance and sexy Greek gods, what more could you ask for.

MacInnes Werewolves by Kendra Leigh Castle
Another of my favorite trilogies, sexy Scottish werewolves. 

Atlantis series by Gena Showalter
Another favorite romantic fantasy with sexy men.

5 YA Books/Series
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
I can finally be able to finish this series, I still haven't read the last 2 books yet

Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
Going for a fairy theme

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
Who doesn't love Rose and Dimitri

Happy Potter by JK Rowling
I can finally re-read this series

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
I could finally read this series, I know I haven't read them yet and I am terrible

Those are the books I would pick 1st, I did have a hard time there are many other books that I would love to bring if the series was finished. So I chose my books based on finished series to help narrow down my choices.

What is your list of books you would grab?

Thanks for playing our little list game! Great list! Gosh!!! Its so hard though, my TBR list keeps getting longer and longer!!!!

I haven't read any of the adult series! But I love Wicked Lovely and Vampire Academy and Wondrous Strange. I really want to start reading Patricia Briggs, but I just don't have the time to venture beyond YA these days, except for Stephen King... though am going to read Rachel Vincent, Jeri Smith-Ready and Richelle Mead's adult series any day now...

Great Island reads!

@Amy it is always fun showing your top picks. It can be so hard to narrow things down, there are so many amazing books.

@Fiktshun you should read more adult. I love switching back and forth between YA and adult. I have all of Richelle Meads adult books I just haven't had the chance to read them yet, hopefully soon.
