Desert Island Book Tag

desert island book tag

Okay- so if you were hoping for a clue about my whereabouts, then this is totally misleading, cos I’m not on a desert island. But I am somewhere sunny! And I have been meaning to do this for sooo long (for the love of god- don’t look at the dates I was tagged to do these if you click on the bloggers that tagged me!)

Thank you so much to the wonderful Novel Glimpse and awesome The Paper Dragon for tagging me to do this way back in that distant, unspecified past!

Water — A book you simply cannot live without
A part of me is thinking “don’t say The Hobbit, don’t say the Hobbit…” which means I totally have to say the Hobbit


Food — A book that is a close second on your favourites list
It’s joint favourite actually

peter pan and wendy

Shelter — A book that makes you feel at home and safe
Easily Capture the Castle (or any Austen or Bronte or any girly classic really- kind of cheated with that one)

Flare Gun — A book you would recommend to someone who doesn’t read
I always go for Picture of Dorian Gray and this time is no different- this book is has everything!

Arkham cover D final

Matchsticks — A book that warms your heart
Isla and the Happily Ever After just gives me all the warm fuzzy feelings!

isla and the happily ever after

Compass — A book that directed you towards your love of reading

Okay, I was born in the 90s- could there be any other answer?


And that’s it! Hope you enjoyed this!

I tag:


Quirky Book Nerd



Tattooed Book Geek

Book dwarf


Upside Down Books

Book Blather



(Feel free to ignore if you’ve already done this)

And to everyone else- what would be your number one pick for a desert island?

  1. Gasp! January and February! (yeah, if you say don’t look, it’s like that big red button which says “Don’t press me”. It’s the first thing I’d do![Also, I’m even worse than you; I’ve got one from over a year ago:$]) :’). As for the picks, I’d bring all the books in my bookcase that I haven’t read yet. Does anyone happen to have some massive suitcases I can borrow??

  2. Thanks for the tag! Picture of Dorian Gray is an interesting choice! I’m not done the book yet, but it’s not superficial (interestingly enough) and is great so far. I’m also a 90’s baby, but (sadly) I didn’t get into Harry Potter well into my late teens 😦
