As I was sitting bored at home yesterday afternoon that age old question popped into my head: If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only bring three books with me what would they be?
Now this is probably one of the most difficult questions you could ever ask a book addict such as myself. With so many amazing authors, genres, and books in the world, it seems almost criminal to imagine a scenario in which you are only given three books to read for the rest of your life! After pondering over this question for quite some time I came up with the following three books (although I'm still not completely satisfied with my choices)....
Pride and Prejudice By Jane Austen
There is no way in hell I could survive on an island for the rest of my life without a little bit of Austen to keep me company. In reality, I would take all six of Austen's novels with me, but alas I decided to narrow it down to just one. After a long struggle between choosing to keep Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion (my two favourites), I decided to go with the former as it is the first Austen novel I ever read, and Mr. Darcy is just so dashing!
Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
I read Gone With the Wind about three summers ago and it quickly became one of my favourite books! I love the tense relationship between Scarlett and Rhett with their constant bickering and making up. The bonus about this book is that it is huge! Like Dictonary huge! Sooo if I'm stranded on a desert island at least this book will take a little more time to read then some of the others I could have chosen.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games series is a new addiction of mine. I chose to bring this one so that I would have something light and fun to read. While it would be kind of disappointing not having the second and third book to complete the series, I could always use my memory to fill in the gaps of what happened next. The first book is by far my favourite anyways!
So these are the three books I would choose to bring with me if I were to be deserted on a desert island with nothing else to read! I'm sure this list will keep changing as I continue to read more and more amazing books! So what do you guys think of the books I have chosen? What books would you choose??
