Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. Apparently, they are overly fond of list-making and love to share their bookish lists with the rest of us book nerds.  =) We're game.

This week's topic is the Top Ten Characters We Would Want With Us On A Deserted Island:

April's Picks:

Jen added her's first so I had to go ahead and be fancy too! I used a shot from our vacation in Bermuda this year. So those are my picks.. and here is why. :)

Katniss - She has mad skills and will catch me dinner
TJ - He's been there, done that. He knows what he's doing and he's pretty to look at.
Lynn - That woman knows a thing about sanitizing water. Who wants the shits? Not this girl.
Ash - He's all cold and shit! I want ice cubes in my fruity drink I plan on concocting out there.
Darla -  That woman can make anything out of nothing. I need a bitching shelter.
Harry Potter - He's full of magic. I need entertainment.
Tinkerbell - She can fly and check out the island for me while I sit on my ass and catch a tan
Juliette - She is strong. No climbing trees for coconuts here. She can punch it and presto!
Sean Kendrick - Okay, maybe not him per say but his narrator. I could listen to him forever
Grimalkin - A pet to keep me company. He's a bit cocky, but he's a cat. #catperson

Clearly I gave this a lot of thought and I probably need a life. lol. :)

Jen's Picks:

I'm not gonna lie, I seriously thought about loading up my deserted island with just my favorite leading men, but I know me, and I'd get pretty bored with all that testosterone...after awhile, anyway. ;0) So, I included some of my favorite heroines, too, to keep me company. In no particular order:

Anna, Lola & Isla (Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door, Isla and the Happily Ever After) I figure are kind of like a package deal. They're all just too cute and funny and adorable not to have along on this adventure, though I'm sure they'll all miss their own leading men. Veronica Mars (The Million Dollar Tan Line) is a given. She's quirky and the girl I'm most likely to be besties with on the island. Josh Bennett (The Sea of Tranquilitywill be able to make us all furniture. :) Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) can magic us anything to the island, but I won't let her Apparate us back to civilization until I've had my fun. :P Wesley Ayers (The Archivedand his guy-liner are purely for my own enjoyment. Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) can scout out the island for us and help keep us all safe.  I'll admit that Noah Shaw (The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer) is here for the eye candy and the accent, but also for the beautiful words: “You can’t hurt me the way you think you can. But even if you could? I would rather die with the taste of you on my tongue than live and never touch you again. I’m in love with you, Mara. I love you. No matter what you do.” I regret nothing. Joe Fontaine (The Sky is Everywhere) will keep us entertained with his musical genius, as well as the bat bat bat of his eyelashes. (I have a thing for eyes...I'm an eye-girl. It should be noted that my hubby has fantastic blue-gray eyes and long, beautiful lashes.) Nikolai Lantsov (Siege and Storm) will keep everyone on their toes with his antics and will provide much-needed levity. And Captain Chaol Westfall (Throne of Glass) and his handsome yet serious demeanor is here to keep everyone in line, and above all else, to keep me company. :D

Which fictional characters would you prefer to be marooned on a desert island with? Be sure to share a link to your TTT post so we can visit!


  1. Darla!! I didn't even think of her. She'd be perfect. My eyes just pretty much jumped straight to the hot boys after that haha. Josh, Noah, SEAN. I would not mind being stranded with them. :D

  2. WHY WOULD YOU LEAVE YOUR ISLANDS??!! Yes to Chaol and Celeana and Harry Potter and...and basically them all. x) Katniss and Lynne definitely, though, because you'd be extra sure to survive, right?!
    My TTT!

  3. Fabulous lists! I have Katniss and Hermione on mine too. I'd definitely need their skills!

  4. Anna, Lola and Isla sound like a great group to have with you. :) I'm not sure who a lot of these characters are, but the ones I do know are great picks! Nice lists, ladies!

  5. Loving these lists! I'd definitely take Katniss and Lynn with me, and heck, Hermione would be another excellent lady to be left stranded with. As for the boys, I'd take Hector (Fire and Thorns) and Wolf (The Lunar Chronicles) with me! Not only are they eye-candy but they know what it takes to survive. And okay, I'll take Thorne too; I'll need his witty banter to entertain me! That leaves four open slots; I guess I have more thinking to do! Ha! This was fun. :)

  6. Katniss is a must, but I'd also like Tessa from Clockwork Angel (Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices series) because she's clever and she adores books and knows so many off by heart. I'm sure she'd be able to tell me stories if I got bored :-)
