Stranded with .... 3 books

So, its that time of the month again... where we are stranded on an island.
& today's topic?
3 books you would want with you on this island...

This is almost like Sophie's choice here.

But let's see what I come up with....

1.  Harry Potter Collection

Ok - I get it - its more then 1 book. Sue me.
But this series, I could read over & over & over again. 
& I'll probably cry every time about Snape "Always" & when one of the twins dies.
& if I spoiled anything for you there, where are you living? Under a rock?

2.  When Heaven Weeps (The Heaven Trilogy)

So - another cheat, but not really because at least this is ONE book
But inside of this book? 
It has one of my favorite all time stories
When Heaven Weeps

That book is one of the first books that made me cry real tears.
Its the retelling of the book of Hosea from the Bible.
SOOOO good.

& the other books in this from Ted Dekker - An extra bonus.

3.  The Sea of Tranquility


I read this book years ago & I love that I still see people reading it now & falling in love with it.
I think this is one book I could read over & over again & still love it.

BONUS... The Bible.

Come on. You have the give a free throw in to have The Bible with you.
it is the #1 selling book.
& you can read it over & over & over & over again & still learn from it.

& goodness knows if you are stranded on an island, you need all the Jesus you can get!


This was so hard... I wanted to pick every JoJo Moyes Book
& every Angie Smith book
& of course, the whole Blossom Series from Debbie Macomber
... & yes, I'd even take the Twilight series with me too. I'll never tire of Edward.  #sorrynotsorry

I'm just glad I live in a world where there's great books.


So what book would you want with you if you were stranded on an island?


  1. I don't think I could narrow it down to three!!

  2. I need to check out The Sea of Tranquility. You've got my curiosity up! I'm your newest follower on Bloglovin! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  3. If I had to choose three books/series today, I'm sure the list would be different from what I might choose a week from now or what I would have picked last year. But I just finished re-reading the Harry Potter series and there's no way I'll ever tire of them! I haven't read your other two picks -- i'll have to check them out :)

  4. YES to Harry Potter :) And I'd say the Bible is a freebie for the list :) I love your choices. It'd be SO hard to choose! I'd say the HP series (duhhhh), Alice in Wonderland, and I'm not sure about the third!

  5. Does the Harry Potter series count as one or multiple books?! Jk. Great choices! xo, Kristina

  6. What's Harry Potter? I'm kidding of course, it's totally my favorite and I cry at both those parts too! Yes to all of these, especially the Bible. :)

  7. I have always wanted to read the Bible but never had. Well, not the whole thing. One day I hope to.

  8. Oh my....the Bible for sure. Then I would want the whole Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich because it literally makes me laugh out loud and if I'm stranded on an island I probably need something to laugh about. Little Women would make the cut because I've read it over and over as it is. Finally, I'd choose Lottery by Patricia Wood because it's a great story and beautifully written.

  9. I enjoy Ted Dekker. How in the world do I not remember hearing of that book?!?

    I'd choose the Bible and probably 2 of my favorite books from Lori Wick. Bamboo and Lace and Pretense.

  10. Great reasoning for choosing the Bible!
    I love every Danielle Steel book I ever read but my favorite is "Family" album! I also enjoy Sophia Kinsella, Beth Harbion and Emily Giffin. Thank you for introducing me to Jojo moyes. I'm almost finished with Me before You. I'm at the part where they came back from their vacation.

  12. Ahh this would be so hard, but I love your choices. Definitely YES to the Harry Potter series - it's been a few years and I'm thinking it's time for a reread!

  13. I agree, the Bible is a must and should be a bonus book!

  14. Yes Harry Potter Collection! And probably the hunger games trilogy or the lord of the rings. OR going way back, the Chronicles of Narnia.

    liz @ j for joiner

  15. Yep - it would be hard for me too. I would also opt for "collections" and hope that I could pass the rules test with them!! Kind of like going through the 10 items only line at the grocery and trying to pass of the BOGO items as one thing! LOL

  16. Harry Potter yes for sure!!! Best series Ever!! Sounds like I need to grab those other book for a read. I also love Debbie Macomber. Have you read any Karen Kingsbury?? If not start with the Baxter family books. So good!!

  17. I am not a reader at all, unless it's an autobiography, then I can deal with it. (I hope we can still be friends!) I did actually read a Ted Dekker book once and loved it. I've never heard of his heaven series, but I will look for them!

  18. Ahhhh I cant narrow it down, can I just trade all three in for a kindle and hope that there is power? LOL! Harry Potter would certainly be on the list though!!! I just read them for the first time three years ago.

  19. I have heard so much about The Sea of Tranquility and I haven't read it, yet. I just reread Harry Potter earlier this year (I think that's when, hard to remember), and I am a little in the mood to do it again. I love them so.

  20. Ted Dekker has been on my radar for years, but I've yet to read any book of his.
    Great post!

  21. Oh gosh, only 3 that's like impossible, LOL.
    If I could only pick 3, I think I definitely would love to take the Selection Series by Kiera Kass with me. Now If I could pick 3 series, I'd pick well the Selection Series, Unbecomong of Mara Dyer series and gosh this is tough well better take a classic just to for kicks, so The Girl of the limberlost.

  22. I recommend Sea of Tranquility to everyone. One of my favorites!

  23. lol at where are you living? honestly i think of HP as 1 book anyway. I would beg for a kindle somehow so i could have all the books. lol. the sea of tranquility.. what an amazing book right?!
