Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’d Want On A Desert Island

Hi all my Bookworms!

How are you ?

My name is Chiara and I am a Bookworm.

Today is Tuesday and I think you all know by now what that means.  Top Ten Tuesday.  I hope you all know what Top Ten Tuesday is, but if you’ve clicked on this post by accident then here is what you need to know.  Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish meme originally created by The Broke and The Bookish in 2010 and switched to That Artsy Reader Girl in 2018.  Each week we are given a different topic.  This week the topic is ‘Books I Wish I Had Read As A Child’.  I wasn’t sure what to say to that.  There are book I wish I had made time to read but I wouldn’t change the way I did anything and there are books that have since been published that I wish I had read when I was younger but didn’t so I decided this weeks topic wasn’t for me.

Instead I decided to do a different topic.  I went back, right to the beginning I worked my way forward.  I had done the very first one last time I didn’t like a topic so this week is now ‘Books I’d Want on a Dessert Island’.

I quite like desert island topics and I find them quite similar to living in lockdown.  I did a ‘Character I’d want with me on a deserted island’ for #SixForSunday a few weeks a go.

But this is very long-winded explanation.  Here is my list …


  1. The Complete Works of Jane Austen Complete Works of Jane AustenGoodreads
  2. Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah Chinese CinderellaGoodreads
  3. 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson 13 Little Blue EnvelopesGoodreads
  4. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett Secret GardenGoodreads
  5. Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo Six of CrowsGoodreads
  6. I Wish You All The Best by Mason Deaver image-3Goodreads
  7. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling Harry Potter and the Order of the PhoenixGoodreads
  8. The Complete Works of Shakespeare Complete Works of William ShakespeareGoodreads
  9. The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arther Conan Doyle Complete Sherlock HolmesGoodreads
  10. Heartstopper by Alice Oseman Heartstopper vol 1Goodreads

What books would you take to your deserted island?  Would you take any of these?

Stay safe and stay home.

Until next time, happy reading.

  1. Oh, a good list! Lot of complete works on here, which means so many more books! I completely agree with Six of Crows. I recently read it and fell in love. The complete work of Shakespeare would be a nice one to have at hand too. Hmm…if I was stuck on an island, I’d have to have PJO: The Lightning Thief and A Wrinkle in Time, but I’m not entirely sure what else. That’s a hard decision. I’d want all of my books there with me!
