Today, The Broke and the Bookish is hosting Top Ten Tuesday, but challenging bloggers to pick a past TTT to choose from. So mine is:
9. Battle Royale by Koushun Takami- for me it’s the original Hunger Games, only a lot more bloody and a bit less character driven. Still, kids killing kids in creative ways never really gets old, does it?
10. The Final Friends Trilogy by Christopher Pike- okay, this is a total cheat, as the three books are not in one volume… yet. But since they are reissuing a lot of Pikes books, slapping two together and giving it a fancy new title, than I figure by the time I get dropped off at the island, this book will be out. I have lived with the characters of these books since middle school (a long, long, long time ago), I know Jessica, Michael, Bubba, Claire, Polly, Sarah, poor Alice, Maria, Bill and Nick better than I know most of my current friends. And I love them (especially Bubba!). So they have to come along. Michael’s a good guy to have in a disaster. 🙂
*I know, you’re probably wondering where the Harry Potter love is, right? Well, I plan on bringing my iPod, which has all 7 audiobooks always ready and waiting for a listen. There was nothing in the rules that said I couldn’t also bring my iPod!
What about you, what books are a must for you?
