Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by the Broke and the Bookish

This week's list: Top Ten Characters I'd want with me on a deserted island.

1. Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games trilogy. She can hunt, and has fantastic survival skills.

2. Finnick Odair also from The Hunger Games. As portrayed by Sam Claflin

3. Skink from various books by Carl Hiassan, particularly Skink: No Surrender.  This eccentric old man has plenty of survival skills and probably some pretty good stories as well.

4. Hassan from An Abundance of Katherines by John Green. I just find him hilarious.

5. Howl and

6. Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle my favorite couple from one of my favorite books.

7. Hermione from Harry Potter, magic would certainly be useful in this situation. Hopefully she'd bring the bottomless bag from Deathly Hallows. 

8. Sturmhond from Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy. My favorite non-murderous guy from that trilogy. Also has a useful knowledge of boats. 

9. Mogget from the Abhorsen trilogy. A demonic yet adorable cat, because why not.

10. Harry Dresden from The Dresden Files. A nerdy wizard with a quick wit sounds like good company on this island. 



Who are your preferred deserted island companions?

Brilliant picks! I also had Katniss and Hermione, think they would both be perfect in that scenario for different reasons. I also decided on an animal companion. I can't believe I forgot Finnick though. Here's my TTT.

Those two ladies are really the ones you want on your side.

I would be so entertained.

One of the best fictional married couples ever.

Too true. No sleeping on the beach for Hermione's friends :)

JaimeLH said...

He could make himself useful too :)

JaimeLH said...

Thanks! I realized I left out so many I could have chosen after the list was already up.

JaimeLH said...

He'd be hilarious.

JaimeLH said...

They sure do. Between them we'd have food and shelter covered.

JaimeLH said...

Definitely. Now I'm imagining how they'd get along...
