Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I'd Want With Me on a Deserted Island

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Let's be honest here…nobody really wants to be on a deserted island, do they? I have no desire to go all Castaway and make best friends with a basketball. If, however, I had to be stranded on a deserted island, I think that the right company might make such a tedious stay a little more bearable. Literary characters might be fictional, but I'm pretty sure any of these would enormously brighten my day on any deserted island. 

Four from Divergent - Because he's hot and principled. I like that combo.
Luna from Harry Potter - Because she's quirky and oddly intelligent, and I think she'd keep us sane.
Augustus from The Fault in Our Stars - Because it's a metaphor. Obviously.

Rose from Vampire Academy - Because she's a take-no-prisoners, tough, awesome girl.
Jace from The Mortal Instruments - Because I'm pretty sure he'd kick some ass.
Anna from Anna and the French Kiss - Because everyone needs a girlfriend to keep them level, right?

Legolas from The Lord of the Rings - Because he's really good with sharp, pointy things.
Finnick Odair from The Hunger Games - Because he's sexy without a shirt, and he always has sugar.
Teresa from The Maze Runner - Because someone needs to have a god soul on this island.
Ender from Ender's Game - Because he's a principled hero.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature from The Broke and the Bookish.


  1. Awesome list! Completely agree with Finnick, Anna, Rose, Jace, and Four. I love your reason for Luna. :)

  2. I love your choices, Melissa. I would probably have to think for hours about who I would choose to have on a deserted island, but you've made some smart choices. All those characters from dystopian books would be a necessity for me to survive as well! :)

  3. I love Luna -- she is oddly intelligent and so sweet. And it helps to have someone nice to look at (ahem, Finnick!).

  4. FOUR!!!! Yesssssssssss. *pounces on him and drags him to a deserted island* He would make my time being stranded much more pleasurable on a variety of levels. I have no survival skills whatsoever, so he would be good to have a round. He's resourceful. As is Legolas, so a huge YES to him as well. And Luna would just be fun - she's just odd enough to make you feel totally sane:)

  5. Love these picks! I'd definitely want these people on an island with me, especially Legolas! :D

  6. I chose Jace as well! I almost brought Anna along but ultimately decided on having Evie from Poison Princess as my BFF on the island! Great Team
    My TTT

  7. Characters from dystopian books are a must on a deserted island cause they'd be much better than I could ever be at survival! And Legolas for hunting would be a fantastic choice!!

  8. Oh nice! Lots of Four going around! Ah, the Theo love!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  9. Rose is an awesome choice (especially Rose at the end of the series, after she's matured somewhat), because she's kick-butt and it's pretty much impossible to keep her down. She might make some enemies on the island, though... ;P

    My Top Ten list

  10. I'd definitely have Four, Rose, Jace, Legolas, and Finnick on my side. I'd probably bring Hermione instead of Luna though and I'd want Katsa from GRACELING since she has a grace for survival which would be handy. Great list, Melissa!(:


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I always do my very best to return the favour :)
