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.
