The Desert Island Book Tag

I was tagged by Giovanna @Book Coma to do this tag. This is also my first tag post, so I am very excited to do this. Thank you, Giovanna. Let’s do this:

1) Water: a book you simply cannot live without

I was trying to be original for this choice, but let’s face it no book can compete with Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone.

HP - Original

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

So I have spent far too long staring at my book shelf trying to decide but I have made my decision. And that book is: Fire by Kristen Cashore.


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

I can’t really decide on a book that makes me feel this way. But I’m going to pick Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, purely because it reminds me of being thirteen years old and being unable to stop reading it. And I read this book mostly inside of my house, so that works.


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

Definitely one of my favourite books, and the one that made me truly fall in love with Shadow Hunters: Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. You can’t help by fall in love with Tessa, Jem and Will.


5) Fire-matches: book that warms your heart

The Cardturner by Louis Sachar, I have yet to read another book like this. I enjoyed learning bridge while watching Alton grow as a character. It makes my heart warm remembering it.


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

Danny the Champion of the World by Roald Dahl. This is the book that introduced me to reading, when my dad used to take me to the library on a Saturday. I can vaguely remember getting this book, finishing it, then going back to get all of Dahl’s other books.


This has been load of fun. I only hope if I was ever to be stuck on a desert island I would enough time to pick up these books.

I am going to tag:

  1. Jacquie @Rattle the Stars
  2. Allison @Book Nook Talk
  3. Isabella @Bella’s Book Nook
  4. Jen @Combustible Reviews
  5. Anyone else who wants to participate

Link me the post if you do decided to do this tag, so I can see what books you picked.

What book directed you towards your love of reading?

Talk Soon,
Lauren x
