Good morning my loves!
Today’s post is the next one in the Desert Island Books with Authors series. Today we have the lovely Jackie Carreria, author The Seventh Train, which is a book that I was lucky enough to take in the blog tour for. You can see my review here. Without further ado, on to the post!
Firstly, thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to play with books. The hardest thing was choosing only three! It was almost impossible to decide, and I’m sure I would pick a different three if I got stranded on another island tomorrow. But today it would be…
‘Through the Looking Glass’ by Lewis Carroll
This has been my favourite book since I was about nine years old, and I never get tired of reading it. I love it for its quirkiness, cleverness, and pure imagination. If I had it on a Desert Island, it would be a perfect escape for the mind…and I would finally have time to figure out how the chess problem works! (I’m rubbish at chess.)
‘Cat’s Cradle’ by Kurt Vonnegut
One of my favourite authors of all time, and arguably one of his finest novels. Perhaps this could be the story of how the hell I ended up on a Desert Island with only three books! It’s a thought-provoking dark satire on the end of the world, the madness of mankind, and what might happen if we crazy humans were to survive Armageddon. (It’s much funnier – and scarier – than it sounds!)
‘The Man Who Planted Trees’ by Jean Giono
This is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read, especially with the original illustrations. It’s also the book I’ve given as a gift to others more than any other book. I love it because it’s full of hope, and it shows how one human being really can make a difference in the world.
And there we have it! Thank you so much Jackie for sharing with us your Desert Island Books! I have to say Lewis Carroll is a favourite of mine too and I think I’d take it with me too! Keep your eyes peeled for more in this series coming soon!
Peace and pages
