Oh no! You've unexpectedly shipwrecked on an island and you have no idea when, or if, you'll be rescued. Whatever are you going to do with the rest of your days (after creating a shelter and finding water and food)? You'll read, of course! Your carry-on has conveniently washed ashore, and it contains the 3 books you brought with you. What 3 books you would want to be stranded with?
Here are my three books -
The Blue Sword - Robin McKinley
This is one of my all-time favorite books...
Harry Crewe is an orphan girl who comes to live in Damar, the desert
country shared by the Homelanders and the secretive, magical Hillfolk.
Her life is quiet and ordinary-until the night she is kidnapped by
Corlath, the Hillfolk King, who takes her deep into the desert. She does
not know the Hillfolk language; she does not know why she has been
chosen. But Corlath does. Harry is to be trained in the arts of war
until she is a match for any of his men. Does she have the courage to
accept her true fate?
Open Season - Linda Howard
The technology in this one is a bit out of date, but it features a librarian taking charge of her life...
Daisy Minor is a small-town librarian tired of being a good girl, living with her widowed mother and spinster
aunt. She wants to experience life and love, to have some fun. She sets out to reinvent,
or at least redecorate, herself. She seeks out a new look to match her
new attitude, moves into her own place, and sets out in search of all
the fun and adventure she's been missing. Soon she's dancing her nights
away, flirting with men, and thoroughly enjoying her new free-spirited
lifestyle. Then, late one night, she sees something that no one was
supposed to see and finds herself in deadly danger. Suddenly, a killer
declares it's Open Season on Daisy Minor, and Daisy's one hope, for life and love, is to find the perfect man to save her life -- and share it.
Styxx - Sherrilyn Kenyon
The latest in the Dark Hunters series, I'd be really sad if I never got the chance to read it again. It was that good.
Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient
evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and
it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn't
always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at
each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a
chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to
trade his life and future for Acheron's. The Atlantean goddess of Wrath and Misery, Bethany was born to right wrongs. But it was never a task she relished. Until now. She
owes Acheron a debt that she vows to repay, no matter what it takes. But things are never what they seem, and now Styxx and Acheron must put aside their past and learn to
trust each other or more will suffer. Yet it's hard to risk your
own life for someone who once tried to take yours, even when it's your
