Top Ten Characters I Would Want With Me
On A Deserted Island
(Picks based on pure randomness)
(Feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
I'm just going to throw this out there...I suspect that I would not last long on a deserted island (much like in the occurrence of a zombie apocalypse). While I'm pretty level-headed in tense situations, I'm not really handy and would most likely not find a way to catch my own food. But maybe, just maybe, if I picked out the right crew of literary characters to have on the island with me I would find a way to survive.
1) Perry from Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
Not only is Perry a studly character full of heart, he's also a warrior, a survivor, a man of many talents, and handy in the wilderness.
2) Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
She's a little whiny and moody, but she's smart, fast on her feet, and handy making fire. As long as we're not being chased by desperate careers, maybe Katniss would be a great addition to the island team.
3) Hermione Granger from Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling
If we're going anything goes on this deserted island, I'd want Hermione there with her magical bag to offer all the comforts of home. Sure, she can be a little bossy, but I could just stick her in the cave with Katniss (because there is a mysterious cave on my fictional deserted island :)
4) Celaena Sardothian from Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
Purely for protection. The girl is wicked, and I'm confident she could protect me from any possible danger.
5) Levi from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
He is a wealth of information, a joy to listen to, and a little bit dreamy. I'm not sure if Levi could help keep me alive, but he could definitely keep me entertained.
6) Flint from Shadowfell by Juliet Marillier
Talk about your tough guy! I'm pretty sure Flint's got it all. He knows how to rough it; he's handy with a sword; and he's mysterious and handsome. Yep. I want Flint on the island.
7) Puck from The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Maybe a bit unconventional, but he's a fairy, and I'm sure he has his uses. He is also a bit of a mischief maker, so I figure Puck will help keep morale up until help comes by goofing off (ideally good-heartedly).
8) Sophronia Temminnick from Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
Sophronia is quick on her feet and extremely resourceful. She'll also be an asset in identifying any dissenters in the group which can come in handy if we need to vote anyone off.
9) The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Every deserted island needs a little madness to make things interesting.
10) Superman...because if I'm being honest, I really don't want to be on a deserted island. As long as their isn't any sneaky kryptonite anywhere in the vicinity, my caped friend can just fly me home. Yes. I just cheated.
