Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman
I initially fell in love with the movie. However, it take me long to fall in love with Hoffman's writing. This is one of her best works, hands down.
Forgotten by Cat Patrick
This was one of my favorite reads from 2011. It's unforgettable (see what I just did there?!) story that would keep me entertained on a deserted island.
American Gods by Neil Gaiman
This was one of my first Gaiman novels. I still reference it to this day. A classic that must be re-read over the years.
Drink, Slay, Love by Sarah Beth Durst
This book has a little bit of everything in it...supernatural, romance, humor, adventure. A wonderful addition to my island treasure chest!
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
Arguably my favorite Atwood novel to date. A must have on a deserted island!
Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
This small novel packs a punch. I just adored this story and will probably read it again in December.
The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff
I still think about this story. It would give me much to ponder on in my solitude on a deserted island.
The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
Ok, another Gaiman book. I know. This would be perfect for something a little lighter, but still substantial.
Ok, maybe I'm a little obsessed because I am reader Blood and Starlight right now...but these books are so complex. I wouldn't mind re-reading them multiple times. SO GOOD!
So, what books would you "bring" with you to a deserted island?
