Blogger Island with Andrew of The Pewter Wolf

Andrew from The Pewter Wolf is joining us today to share the books he has chosen to take with him to Blogger Island. I know it was a very tough choice for him, but he got there in the end.
I was looking at my TBR shelves (looking/stroking is the same thing, right?) and I wondered which five TBR books I would take to the desert island. I know, a bad thought but I thought it over and wrote my list. Hope you like my choice! 
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon 
I won my copy a while ago and it sits at the bottom of my TBR pile (it’s a hardback and can take the weight!), but I am kinda intrigued and excited over reading about this world. 
A Game of Thrones by George RR Martin
The first book on this list where I feel like I haven’t read the book/seen the TV show that EVERYONE is talking about. I actually have no idea what happens in the show/book. All I know is that there’s something called “The Red Wedding” and I shouldn’t have favourite characters for they will die. That’s it! And I won this in a contest and am really intrigued over of this book lives up to the hype… 
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Am I the only person who hasn’t read this? I feel like it half the time. I think I will like this book a lot, but the hype/buzz scare me a little. But on a desert island, there will be no pressure to read this and like it. So, being trapped on a desert island might do me a favour with this book…. 
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
I know. I KNOW! How have I not read this? HOW?! Well, like Fangirl, am a little scared of it, but after me reading Patrick’s latest, The Rest of Us Just Live Here, and loving it so, I feel brave enough to try this. And with being on a desert island, I can’t hide from it. I can imagine sitting down next to the fire and reading it. Reading it and not freaking out over the silence… 

Fatal Voyage by Kathy Reichs

I think the title’s quite apt for this, no? 

Some brilliant choices there, Andrew!If you would like to read more from Andrew then check out his blog here.
