Stranded \\ A Link Up

This is such a fun link up, I can't wait to share with you the 3 books I'd want if I was stranded on an island!

The first book I've shared with you all before, a few times, and I always come back to it because it is by far my most FAVORITE book of all time.  I'd probably be happy if this is the only book I could have on the island, I'd just read it over and over and over again (and cry and cry and cry again! This book gets me in my heart, love these characters!).  The book is...

It follows Victoria through her teenage years and twenties but is mostly about the friendship between her and Caitlin.  You watch her grow up, fall in love, get her heart broken, learn about life... I could go on and on.  I seriously do love these girls, they've been in my life for probably 20 years, no lie!  And I've read and re-read this book no fewer than 10 times.  It's my go-to summer read, I think I've read it every summer for the past 5.  You will find me sobbing my eyes out multiple times while reading this book, and not necessarily because it's sad but because I feel for the characters.  Gah, I love this book!

Ok, so this is a children's book but it's one of my favorites.  I can easily be transported to Laura's family home in the woods while reading this so if I need a little get away from the island this will do the trick.  If taking the entire series counts as a book then I'd do that, too. :)

My third book would be by one of the following authors: Nora Roberts, Liane Moriarty, Elin Hilderbrand or Stephanie Grace Whitson.  I've not found a single book by any of these gals that I didn't enjoy.  Nora Roberts is all romance, Liane and Elin are life stories and Stephanie Grace Whitson writes historical romance, which I love.  Hers I've read were all set in the late 1800's.  If you haven't read any of these authors give them a try.  I can suggest a specific book if that helps you get started.

What one book would you take if you were stranded on an island? I'm always looking for book suggestions, even if they won't get read for quite some time.  :)  Leave me your suggestions in the comments!


  1. Have you read "The Girl on the Train"? It's a mystery and I really liked it.

  2. I am not at all surprised to see Summer Sisters on here. I'd totally pack Unbroken by Hilderbrand. Talk about a guy who survives so much - being stranded on an island wouldn't seem so bad compared to what he went through!
