10. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling (cheating and counting as one!)   (:

(PS: a little side note, I'm taking a few days break because I'm taking my nursing license exam Wednesday morning and I need to study! I'll be back after though with reviews of The Forest of Hands and Teeth and Under the Never Sky!)


  1. I still really need to read Stephanie Perkins' books; I've been hearing so many good things about them! Here's my TTT: http://aliceinreaderland.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/top-ten-books-id-want-on-a-deserted-island/

  2. Recently a friend berated me for not having read Wuthering Heights so I'm feeling like I should have added that to my list. Jane Eyre would hit the spot for me, definitely.
    Here's my list:

  3. nice list. feel free to checkout my TTT

  4. Agree with Harry Potter and Rebecca. Mine is here.

  5. Greatness. I cheated with series too. Harry Potter is a must. Perkins was on my list to cheer me up. You picked my favorite 2 classics. Gone With the Wind would be perfect..."tomorrow is another day"

  6. I think I saw HP on EVERYBODY's list today ^^ Great pick.

    My TTT

  7. Harry Potter! Every list I've seen so far has Harry Potter on it and who can live on a deserted Island without this series? And Jane Eyre is also a great book.


  8. Nice picks! Rebecca is one of my favorite gothic novels! <33

  9. Love Stephanie Perkins!! Can't wait til she writes another book!!! You have a well rounded list going on!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT
