Top Ten Tuesday -- Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me On A Deserted Island

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish.

Each week a new Top Ten list that one of the bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All they ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget, so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow book bloggers!!

1. Claire Randall Fraser (Outlander Series)

I love her character in the Outlander series!! She's a fun character you'd love to have as a friend. Plus, she's a gifted natural healer and nurse/physician.

2. Jamie Fraser (Outlander Series)

Is Claire's sexy hubby, who's both funny and intelligent. He a great provider too. All you'd want in a man for a life partner!

3. Enzo (The Dog from The Art of Racing in the Rain)

Gotta love dogs!! I am an avid dog lover and Enzo is one heck of a lovable dog. I like how the novel, The Art of Racing in the Rain, is told through Enzo's eyes. I already know dogs are super smart, but this novel gives you an interesting perspective on what dogs may be thinking! Plus, it gives one hope (or at least me anyway) that dogs are reincarnated and come back into our lives as humans.

4. Hermione Granger (Harry Potter Series)

I love Hermione Granger!! She's an over achiever and excels in school in just about everything. I'd want her around on a deserted island to work her magic and use her knowledge to get us out of any pickle!

5. Hercule Poirot (Agatha Christie's Famous Fictional Belgium Detective)

I've always had a soft spot for Hercule Poirot!! He's my favorite character created by Agatha Christie. He's logical and smart and could solve any case!!

6. Susan "Stargirl" Caraway

She's the lead character in the novel Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. Stargirl is a high school student who is a positive role model for girls to stand out and be unique and to not afraid to be who they really are.

7.  Samuel Hamilton (from East of Eden)

One of my favorite characters from East of Eden!! 

8. Lee (from East of Eden)

Another favorite character from East of Eden

9. Miss Jane Marple (fictional character created by Agatha Christie) 

I like her character as well! Miss Marple is able to solve mysteries quite well. She reminds me of a kindly old aunt!

10. Ivan Markovic (from Her Russian Protector #1 by Roxie Rivera)

Every once in awhile the bad boy can be sexy!

So, which characters would you want with you on a deserted island?


  1. Hermioneee!!! I love her and yes, her magic would be a huge benefit :) Also, Poirot wouldn't hurt! He can indeed solve any and all problems one may face in this situation ;)

    1. Thank you for visiting my blog!! I truly appreciate it!

  2. Enzo is such a good idea! A dog would be great company :-) I have Hermione on my list this week too.

    1. I love dogs and adding one into my list seemed like the perfect fit!

  3. Love your post and I think Jamie Fraser would be the only companion I would like on a desert island ...LOL. Thanks for visiting my blog.


    1. Thank you for visiting my blog as well and also becoming a follower of my blog!!

  4. I'm embarrassed to admit I've not read any of these yet. So some aren't familiar to me but they sound like a perfect group for a island. Thanks so much for sharing this week and happy reading. My TTT

    1. No worries if you haven't read any of the books yet!! There are so many books out there that I haven't even had a chance to read yet either!!

  5. Thank you for visiting my TTT blog post, I really appreciate it.

  6. I love that you have included a dog - would have never thought about that, and it is such an awesome addition to your group!

  7. Awww, I love that you included Enzo! What a great choice! I absolutely bawled in that book and the ending couldn't have been more perfect (you know, except for the inevitable sad part that we knew was coming). Dog people unite!

    1. The Art of Racing in the Rain was my favorite novel in 2013!!! I too bawled my eyes out during various scenes in this novel. You're right, the ending couldn't have been more perfect, even though we knew the sad part was coming! Yes, dog people unite!!

  8. I would also love to meet Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple, they are both very smart. Apart from that, I have not read most of the books you mentioned but I would think I'd feel comfortable with them if you do.
