I found this on Barnes & Nobles’ website/blog and thought it would be fun to have my own top five books I would have with me if I got stranded on an island. I rarely agree with B&N’s blogs, because sometimes they seem too cliché, so here is my list
1. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas – It has action, it has romance, it has revenge and fighting… it is everything a good book should be!
2. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton – who wouldn’t want to read about dinosaurs eating people trapped on an island?
3. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – because finding an amazing book in today’s world is sometimes difficult and this one captivated me from the first page.
4. The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling – this one was a tough decision, because I was between this one or a dictionary. I love this book due to the complexities of human nature and I think it was be a good thing to have when I am missing society on that small island, but I would also benefit from a dictionary because I love looking up and learning new words. Either would suit me.
5. The Bible
