Top Ten Tuesday! (7)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started over at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they have a specific topic for a top ten list. Link up, visit some new blogs and add to your ever growing TBR list. This week's topic is:

Top Ten Books (or Series) You'd Save in the Event of a Disaster
Just so you know, I totally added the 'series' part because I simply cannot choose a favourite from some of them!!

1. Harry Potter - Yep, this is why I edited to include 'series'. I could never leave one behind...and including all seven on this list individually wouldn't make it a lot of fun!

2. The Day After Forever by Erin Skiffington - My favourite book growing up. I haven't read it in years, but I couldn't leave without it.

3. The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak - I've only read this the once so far, but this is the book I think everyone needs to read at least once...so of course it must be saved!

4. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger - The impact this story had on me, it has to be on this list.

5. Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden - Another series! These got me back into reading during high school...they were my Harry Potter when I was a teen, waiting desperately every year for a new one to be released!

6. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I just have a lot of love for this series, and it got me into a whole new genre.

7. Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya - My favourite manga series...there's 24 of these beauties, but all packed in a box ready to go! I could never leave them behind...Kyo is my favourite fictional boyfriend (that's the red head...or orange haired...btw).

8. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - My favourite classic. It's stayed with me despite not having read it since high school!

9. The Complete Jane Austen Collection - This is actually one quite large book, so it's ok. Jane Austen created some of my all time favourite romances...it could never be left to burn, or drown, or mauled by zombies...or whatever.

10. Nicholas Sparks - I can't pick one! I've been trying...but it isn't happening. So.

Do you have a book...or two or three or seven or so on...that you could never leave behind if disaster struck?


  1. How could you NOT save Jane! I'd do the same. :)
