Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I'd Want on a Deserted Island

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.  This week I get to choose my top ten books I'd want on a deserted island.  OK...since I'm NOT an outdoors person...I'm going to PRAY this never happens to me :)  AND...if it did...that I wouldn't be there long!  So I'm choosing books that (hopefully) will make me forget my surroundings :)
  • Les Miserables - one of the best books I've ever read...totally captivated me in high school, and I haven't read it since.  I'm guessing it would be just as great the second time :)
  • Gone with the Wind - again, a superb book that I haven't re-read in over a decade
  • Roots
  • War and Peace - both of these because they are long and I haven't read them yet and I really need to
  • Twilight - yeah...I loved it that much :)
  • The Bible
  • A Song of Ice and Fire series - I've been meaning to read this series...and never seem to find the time (so books 1-4)
And THAT...makes TEN :)

    1. Definitely add the book to your TBR list...I love it much more than the musical, and I suspect the upcoming movie. It's just a wonderful story. Thanks for following!!
