The Desert Island Book Tag


Thanks to Dreamy Addictions for tagging us!

1) Water: a book you simply cannot live without



The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – This book started it all for me. My reading life wouldn’t be the same without it.



Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4) by Marissa Meyer – I don’t know how I lived before this book. This was the perfect conclusion to a perfect series.

2) Food: a book that is a close second on your favorites list



An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir – While I do love this book, I do prefer some other fantasies. But I do highly recommend this one!!



A Court of Thorns and Roses (A Court of Thorns and Roses #1) by Sarah J. Maas – As much as I loved this book, it was never #1 in my heart. It always snagged 2nd or 3rd place! I can’t wait for A Court of Mist and Fury (A Court of Thorns and Roses #2) coming out this May!!!

3) Shelter: a book that makes you feel at home and safe


to all the boys

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han – Nothing makes me feel more at home than the arms of Peter Kavinsky a light and fluffy contemporary read.



Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch – When I read the description, this book instantly popped into my head. I guess it makes me feel at home and safe because Snow Like Ashes is the perfect novel for my favorite genres (monarchial fantasy–the use of “my lord” and “my lady” just gets to me)

4) Flare gun: a book that you would recommend to a person who doesn’t read



Legend by Marie Lu – I’d recommend a book that is easy to get into, and Legend is exactly that! There are no difficult terms, it’s full of action, and it has an amazing romance that doesn’t overwhelm the book! I highly recommend this book to ANY person, whether he/she be a reader or not. 10/10 stars.


falling kingdoms

Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms #1) by Morgan Rhodes – Normally I’d recommend the entire series but that might overwhelm the non-reader (SHUUUUUN THE NONBELIEVER) so I’ll stick with recommending the first. Falling Kingdoms is a nice opening fantasy monarchial novel for an epic series that deals with politics, rebellion, and magic, all the while maintaining the balance between the three and keeping the reader interested. With the way the first book ends, the nonreader will be tempted to pick up the rest of the series in no time. Conversion complete. 😉

5) Fire-matches: book that warms your heart



The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh – This book doesn’t just warm my heart, IT SETS MY SOUL ON FIRE



Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi – It warms my heart because Warner is so hot and I love him more than words can say.

6) Compass: book that directed you towards your love for reading


I have an entire post on this, but basically, it’s:


Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan – These books got me into reading, and I haven’t looked back ever since.



Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta – I said in my review of the book that I found a picture on Tumblr of a line from the book that made me WRECK THE INTERNET TO KNOW WHAT BOOK IT CAME FROM. After reading it, I picked up another and now look where I am!!!! English Literature major with no more shelf space in her condo.

And that was the tag fam! If you’re reading this, then you’ve been tagged by us! We hope that you guys do this tag too! Happy reading ❤

  1. Great Answers! I’ve been seeing people going gaga over Winter so I really need to get to it soon. The wrath and the dawn is really an enchanting read and I can’t wait to read the sequel. Shatter Me trilogy has given me biggest book hangover ever. I’m also eagerly waiting for the A court of mist and fury. Legend trilogy and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before are currently in my binge reading list and I hope to read them around this year. Anyway, thank you so much participating! 😀
