... in books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
This week’s original topic wasn’t appealing to me so I thought I won’t participate but then Jamie changed it into a freebie week. This got me thinking and so I am back participating this week too and I will tell you my
Top Ten Books I'd Want on a Desert Island

Gretchen Sackmeier by Christine Nöstlinger
I told you I love this book!

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
I am sure series count as one ;-)

Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series
it’s my all time favorite mystery series

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series
his writing is just so hilarious. I need to have these books with me

From Notting Hill with Love…Actually by Ali McNamara
love the story, love the cover, love the author

The Gemstone trilogy by Kerstin Gier

The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley
a really thick book

my Bernstein Bears Collection
childhood memories – these books were one reason why I learned English so early (not my native language btw)

 and my Kindle
cheating I know


  1. Why not take your Kindle? It's perfect for the desert-island-stranded book-lover. I'm surprised they don't include that fact in their marketing! :) You'd definitely need it, especially with all those series to lug around your tiny island.

    Good list, Karin!

  2. I definitely agree with the Stephanie Plum series!
